Meet The Vote creators Josie Rourke and James Graham - London Life - Life & Style - London Evening Standard

Playwright James Graham and the Donmar Warehouse’s artistic director Josie Rourke don’t make things easy for themselves ... And I mean the very last minute ... ‘We should be able to react quickly to things and we have actors who are up for it.’ To add an extra level of complexity, the duo have imagined their polling station in Lambeth (Graham lives in Kennington) and have cast their play so that it reflects the ethnic mix in the borough ... ....

Rubbish on Kennington Road and Kennington Lane in front of shops

​From: Brathwaite,Jennifer Cllr <JBrathwaite@lambeth.gov.uk>
To: Cathy Preece <kenningtoncompanions@gmail.com>, "Crook,Kevin" <KCrook@lambeth.gov.uk>, "Naish,Keith" <KNaish@lambeth.gov.uk>, "Clarke,Michael C" <MCClarke@lambeth.gov.uk>

Cathy Preece - Thank you for your email regarding the state of Kennington Road and Kennington Lane.  I am sorry that the condition of the streets have given you cause to write to me but I am also grateful to you for bringing it to my attention.  During last year's local election Lambeth Labour pledged to make neighbourhoods cleaner and greener and we rely on residents  keeping an eye on how clean their streets are to help us achieve this objective.

I will instruct officers and our contractors to clean up and monitor this area.  If you do not see an improvement within the next two weeks please contact me.

Keith Naish - Can you please take a look at Kennington Road and Lane and tell me the cause of the rubbish on the streets.  I was in Kennington Road about two weeks ago and noticed how messy it seemed.  Some commercial bins on the pavements were overfilled spoiling the look of the area.  Can you arrange to speak to the shop owners to ensure that they have made arrangements to dispose of their waste in a responsible manner and ask them to ensure that their waste receptacles are emptied at appropriate intervals.  

Kevin Crook - Can you confirm that our contractors are cleaning this area thoroughly.  Can you advise me when litter picking and street cleaning takes place on Kennington Road and Lane and arrange for our officers to monitor the standard of cleaning for the next month.  

Michael Clark -  Can you speak to the BID manager to enquire whether they can persuade the relevant businesses to make them more responsible for cleaning up the mess outside their respective shops. 

Jamie Ackinola - Can we consider extending timed collection to Kennington Road and Lane.  Parts of the area are blighted by large commercial bins on the pavement.  Can you look into this.

Regards to you all,

Councillor Jennifer Brathwaite
Labour Councillor for 
Gipsy Hill Ward
Cabinet Member for Environment and Sustainability

FoDL: Monday 20 April: Annual General Meeting

Events | Friends of Durning Library

Monday 20 April:  Annual General Meeting.
Don’t miss this important event when Susanna Barnes, Head of Lambeth Libraries, will talk to us about the latest proposals for the running of Lambeth Libraries, including the Durning.  These proposals are far-reaching and, as they stand, are likely to lead to the loss of any decent library service in Kennington.  Come and hear what is on the cards, and what your Committee is doing about it.  Constructive ideas always welcome!
Susanna will talk from about 7.10 until 7.45 pm, and the AGM itself will start at 7.50pm.
Do bring your £3.00 subscription as well as your usual £2.00 donation.
AGM papers will be issuing at the end of March.
Monday 20 April
6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library.  Light refreshments. Everyone welcome.
No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.

Durning Library in danger - please help!

Hi Cathy
Please can you circulate this message to your lists...
Lambeth's latest plans pose a very real threat to our libraries - we
mean CLOSURE.
But it is by no means obvious from the messages being sent out by the council.
Below is the message from Friends of the Durning Library (also attached).

Thank you!
Laura

YOUR LOCAL LIBRARIES ARE IN DANGER!
That includes DURNING LIBRARY.

Lambeth's plan for 'Cultural Services by 2020' is in libraries and at
www.lambeth.gov.uk/culture2020consultation.
Few have read it - or understood its dangerous implications.

The paper proposes to:
CLOSE 2 libraries (Minet, Waterloo) and sell the buildings.
STOP RUNNING 3 libraries (Carnegie, Durning, Upper Norwood), leaving
local people to staff and largely fund them (p.18).

This is completely impractical. It effectively means CLOSURE.

Volunteer-run libraries have no record of success in boroughs like
Lambeth. Where they survive at all, they do not provide anything
resembling a full library service.

NOT ONLY WILL THE DURNING BE LOST -
THERE WILL BE NO PROPER LIBRARY
SERVICE IN MOST OF NORTH LAMBETH.

Friends of the Durning Library will argue that the council's budget
cuts can be made in far less damaging ways.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
THE CONSULTATION DEADLINE IS 24 APRIL.

PLEASE
✮Forward this message as widely as you can.
✮ Write: drop into box in library or post (no stamp needed) to
Freepost RSYJ-KJAK-HUTC, Room 113, Brixton SW2 1RW
✮ Email: culture2020@lambeth.gov.uk
✮ Sign the petition: http://tinyurl.com/nuv4f87
✮ COME TO OUR MEETING ON 20 APRIL
 7pm at Durning Library, 167 Kennington Lane.
