ASSA is pleased to support local good causes through the income we raise from holding fundraising events, as well as the facility fees that we charge to TV and film companies for using our location for filming.

Is there a local good cause that you wish to nominate to receive a modest grant from ASSA funds?

Our most recent recipients of funds have included:

  • Friends of Tate South Lambeth Library
  • Oasis playscheme
  • Quaker Book Trust
  • St Stephen’s parents and toddlers group
  • Thrive (therapeutic gardening for people with disabilities)
  • United Families homework club (for children from the Eritrean community)
  • Vauxhall City Farm

Please send us your suggestions for further good causes, with a short description of their work and contact details, and we will announce further recipients on this website.

As one local restaurant closes, we are pleased to report the expansion of another popular local outlet.

Many of us were very sad to see Rebato’s shut its doors last week after 25 years of serving wonderful food (particularly those of us not able to get in for a last meal there because of the crowds!). We wait with trepidation to see what business appears to replace it.

However, there is very good news from Wilcox Road.

The very wonderful Hot Stuff has expanded into bright and roomy new premises alongside its current take-away outlet, giving more tables and elbow room and space in between (so we don’t all need to be part of Lauren’s leaving do). The great food and bargain prices remain, so support this local business and make your way down to Hot Stuff for a delicious and good value grub.

A resident in Wilkinson Street recently experienced a bizarre crime .  A window box in the front ground floor window was stolen, all the plants were taken out and left loose in another tub, and the heavy box and its supply of earth were taken.
Has anyone else had anything similar happen? Please do let ASSA know. If there is a pattern of residents losing garden materials, plants etc, we will raise it with the safer neighbourhood policing team to follow up.
