The sun is set to shine, so get out on your doorstep, join your neighbours and take part in our community recycling event.

Sell, swap or give away your unwanted goods – and buy or take away those of your neighbours.

  • It’s free
  • It’s fun
  • Meet the neighbours
  • And you can get rid of those unwanted things too.

Has your bike been packed away all winter? You’ll have the chance to get it oiled, patched up and ready for summer action with our on-site bike mechanic.

And we’ll clear away any unwanted goods when it’s over and take them to a local charity shop.

For more information on taking part, contact Brenda on: brenda@bskirsch.demon.co.uk or 07856 232 553.

Lambeth Council has approached all the residents’ associations in our area about its plan to invest in a Neighbourhood Enhancement Programme. The Neighbourhood Enhancement Programme is about street improvements for all the streets in the triangle between Stockwell, up to Oval and Vauxhall.

The committee of Albert Square & St Stephen’s Association wants your views on what we should ask for in our streets. We’re trying to encourage people who live in the following streets to tell us what they think:
– Albert Square

– Aldebert Terrace
– St. Stephen’s Terrace
– Wilkinson Street

Lambeth has given us a number of options to chose from. Please have a look at the online questionnaire we’ve created. There are only 10 questions to respond to. It should take five minutes to fill out the questionnaire.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3HVMBHN

We’ve asked for your name and contact details at the bottom of the questionnaire. You don’t need to tell us who you are unless you want to. We’ll only use this information to let you know what progress we’re making or to ask any questions if you have specific queries.

We look forward to seeing your responses on the online questionnaire

Many thanks

The committee of Albert Square & St. Stephen’s Association
