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.

Coach trip to Calais and Belgium - Saturday 21st December

Jim has confirmed that there will be a coach trip to Calais on Saturday 21st December.
Pick-up in Kennington at 6am (sharp) at the petrol station opposite Tesco on Kennington Lane.
Shoppers will be dropped off at Cité Europe,
smokers will go on to Adinkerke on the Belgian border,
then back to pick up the shoppers around 3pm
for the ferry home.
I think the price is still £35 return including ferry;
however, check when you book.

Please book asap as this will likely be a full coach.
