We want to know!!

Lambeth is offering up to 2 cycle hangars for safe storage of bikes in Aldebert Terrace and one in the entrance road to Albert Square. Let us know your thoughts by signing Lambeth’s form.

We are having a spring Clean up on the morning of Saturday 7th March between 10.30 and 1 pm to weed, prune, clear up and  generally make the neighbourhood ready for Spring.
We plan to plant 200 daffodil bulbs in the build outs as well as clear up the communal beds by the church and near the Clapham Road.
Lambeth Community Freshview have promised some help with loan of tools, some topsoil to refresh our communal beds and a skip to take away our rubbish.
Please do join if you can – the group will be working across the local streets (Albert Square, Aldebert Terrace, St Stephen’s Terrace and Wilkinson Street) so should be easy to find. Once we are finished, all the workers are invited for a light lunch of bread, cheese and salad, a glass of wine and chat to meet neighbours and learn about what is going on locally. This will be held in a local home.

The Albert Square and St Stephen’s Association (ASSA), a residents’ association for the Albert Square conservation area in South Lambeth, is inviting local charities and organizations to submit bids for small grants which can be paid from the association’s funds.

Organizations considering making a bid are given the following guidance:

  • We invite bids for grants of up to a maximum of 500 pounds. The average size of grant paid in the past is around 300 pounds, and we do not anticipate any significant change in this policy.
  • Whilst ASSA do not insist that bidding organizations are active within the precise area covered by the association, we do ask that the grant will be used for the benefit of local people.
  • Bids should be made for a specific capital expenditure or project, rather than to meet the general running costs of an organization.
  • Organizations receiving a grant will be expected to send a short report once the grant has been spent.
  • ASSA will not make grants to sectarian or political organizations
  • Bids should be accompanied by a copy of the most recent set of accounts for the organization making the application.

To submit an application please write to the Chairman of ASSA, Peter Edwards (superedwards3@gmail.com) giving an brief outline of the organization making the bid, the purpose for which the grant will be used, and the amount requested. Bids should be submitted before 20th February 2015.

We are holding an autumn neighbourhood clean-up (Community Freshview in Lambeth-speak). This is the chance to clear out your homes and gardens and tidy up the public green spaces for our neighbourhood. Do please join us out on the streets weeding, sweeping and giving the plants an end of season tidy up. We also need volunteers to help with the plants and shrubs outside the church.

As in previous years, we will finish with wine and cheese once the work is all done. Please do come along if you can.
