Mary Becker

Sad to learn of the death on 27/12 aged 91 of Mary Becker, a Conservative councillor in Lambeth 1968-71, and long-time Kennington resident.

Stephen Colebourne, who writes the UK Rail blog, puts it succinctly. ... His verdict? "It really must, in all reality, be considered dead." ... There is vague talk of a Crossrail 2, the old Chelsea to Hackney plan, but the Mayor, Boris Johnson, has been slow to work up plans for any major new lines, concentrating, instead, on the rather minor extension from Kennington to Battersea which, it is hoped, will be largely developer-funded

St Mary, Newington

I have set up this page to give information about the Robes Project. On Saturday nights from 4th January to the 22nd February the church will become a night shelter for the homeless. Guests are triaged through the Robes Project. The church organises the volunteers. We especially need people who can provide hot food for 20 or so guests - cook at home and bring along, we can pay for ingredients. We also need people who will just be there and hang out with our guests and chat. We need people prepared to sleep over. To help with breakfast. And to help with laundry. Will put more details up tomorrow. Training is at 5.30 this Saturday. Giles

So here are the things that we need volunteers for, Saturday nights/Sunday mornings from 4th Jan to 22nd Feb :

Evening shift: 6.45-9.45 Put out bedding, welcome guests, chatting with guests, help with supper etc. (need six volunteers)

Cook for supper: prepare food at home (we have money for ingredients) deliver food in good time for 7.30. Soup or a main course or pudding. For max 20 guests.


If you are interested in volunteering please e-mail penelopehigham@gmail.com, she is co-ordinating volunteers

Very sad to learn of the death of Maureen Johnston - she was a fantastic force for good in Kennington and will be deeply missed.

TRIBUTES TO VERONICA PLANTON, CAMPAIGNER FOR JUSTICE

Those of you who knew Veronica will be sad to learn of her passing.
http://jews4big.wordpress.com/tag/veronica-planton/
Veronica attended the very first KA AGM in 2002,
and tirelessly delivered mailings for us in North Kennington/Waterloo.
It was Veronica who introduced the Ladies Who Lunch to Ev, the Turkish restaurant in Waterloo.
Veronica also attended our Pub nights
and wanted to come for a Turkish bath;
however, her health was failing,
and she wasn't strong enough to join us.
She was also a great fan of the hairdressing school in Marylebone!
Much missed.

Transport bosses hope their South London expansion will reverse the Boris Bikes’ falling popularity

A CYCLE hire point has been installed outside Battersea Power Station – as transport bosses hope their South London expansion will reverse the Boris Bikes’ falling popularity.
 About 60 new docking stations are expected to be launched across Battersea, Wandsworth and Putney before Christmas. They currently only extend as far south as Kennington and Vauxhall.  However, the extension comes at a time of declining popularity for London mayor Boris Johnson’s flagship transport project. http://www.slp.co.uk/news.cfm?id=38560&headline=Boris%20Push%20bike

InterContinental Hotels Group signs for hotel in SE11

IHG signs for Vauxhall hotel By Bridget O'Connell from Estates Gazette
Listed developer CLS Holdings has signed an agreement with InterContinental Hotels Group at its £80m Spring Court development in Vauxhall, SE11.

The franchise agreement will see a 93-bedroom Staybridge Suites Hotel located on the site. It will be the most central Staybridge Suites hotel in London, following the successful opening of Stratford City last year.

CLS said the 15-year franchise agreement “forms an important part of the £80m mixed-use development”, which will also include 400 high-quality student rooms and is scheduled for completion in September 2014.

CLS executive chairman Sten Mortstedt said: “InterContinental Hotels Group is one of the top hotel companies in the world and its Staybridge Suites brand perfectly meets our aspirations for a hotel in this area. We very much look forward to working together with IHG.”

Houses at the former Lilian Baylis School site are now on sale

This unique development of the former Lillian Baylis School will become a new community of 149 homes ranging from one bedroom flat to four bedroom townhouses. Part conversion of the sixties school promises spectacular loft-style apartments in the original teaching blocks. Within the development here will be new build "courtyard" properties in extensively re-landscaped grounds, 89 of these properties will be for the open market while 26 will be allocated for shared ownership and 34 will be for affordable rent.

The 3.2-acre site borders fabled Lambeth Walk, SE11, Zone 1 and is so close to the Palace of Westminster that it falls within the parliamentary Division Bell area. This so-central inner-city area, is undoubtedly on the up. The school sits in a classic urban setting - amid pre-war and post-war estates as well as a collection of neo-Georgian cottages built in the early 20th century.

"They swapped a flat in Kennington for two floors of a large Victorian house with 10ft ceilings, three bedrooms, balcony and garden"

Buyers are now prepared to move into areas they have never heard of. Michael McDermott and Catherine Pellegrino are typical pioneers. Both in their early thirties, they moved into south London's Telegraph Hill, Lewisham, earlier this year. They swapped a flat in Kennington for two floors of a large Victorian house with 10ft ceilings, three bedrooms, balcony and garden.

While most people in New York live on top of one another in dense neighborhoods tightly packed together, in London they spread far into the distance, in discrete neighborhoods like Richmond and Bermondsey and Kennington, too many to know, each with its own High Street and its own iteration of the same stores ... Yet each neighborhood also has its own character ... The only recourse
