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.

ASSA has long campaigned for secure bike parking for residents – a few years age we successfully worked with Lambeth Council and London & Quadrant Trust to win secure bike sheds available for most of the Trust’s tenants in Albert Square.

Now the council has stepped up its commitment to support cycling and cyclists by installing secure bike hangars on our streets. You might have seen these on neighbouring streets and now, after an extensive period of consultation, Lambeth is proposing to install secure bike hangars on:

  • St Stephen’s Terrace – outside no. 19
  • Aldebert Terrace – outside no. 8.

However, there has not yet been any proposals for similar hangars in Albert Square or Wilkinson Street.

In Albert Square, some individual residents are vociferously opposed to any siting of hangars in the square. However, there does seem to be demand for secure on-street bike parking as 4 to 5 bikes are regularly chained to the railings opposite 6-14 Albert Square (including one that has been vandalised, indicating a need for secure provision).

On Wilkinson Street, there has been no expressed indication of need, although bikes are sometimes parked on the street, and a previous walk-around by the Lambeth Cycling Officer and ASSA members indicated a possible site alongside the entrance to the car park behind the flats next to St Stephen’s Church.

If you have any views about the siting of the bike hangars, especially if you are a bike owner seeking secure on-street parking, please email Eric Duval, cycle parking programme, at: eduval@lambeth.gov.uk

PLEASE come  along even for a FEW minutes  between 9 and 5 and input your ideas.  Money HAS  been  allocated for VERY REAL  change in the next 12 months.  IF we are to have a good chance of getting improvements to OUR streets then we need the maximum number of local residents to come along and show their enthusiasm for the resources to be allocated here.

This is a very real chance to make a difference and have your say on what you would like to see happen.  Local Residents groups have joined together with the engineers at Lambeth Council  and you can come along and  talk to them about what  you think we need in our streets.

The following  items can be altered or changed in this Current  Enhancment programme:

  • EFFECTIVE Speed  and traffic reducing measures/ traffic calming
  • Street Greening-  more trees -more plants
  • Cycle Parking
  • Secure cycle storage
  • Bins- come along and choose the bins and talk to Lambeth experts about  Waste management

There are different ways of joining in.   You could come along  and comment on photos  of our local street scenes that will already  be up on walls.  Alternatively, take pictures on your phone or camera of the things that you like or dislike and bring them along to be printed off and  add  to the discussions. Seen a great bin- take a picture? Gone past traffic calming ideas or  tree  planting ideas in other neighbourhoods – take a picture and have it printed off on Saturday.

The Wheatsheaf Hall on Wheat sheaf Lanes is a beautiful building –   just off the South Lambeth Road-just after the  Brazilian pub and before Wyvil School.

Make YOUR opinion heard, help co- design and improve our streets.
