Published on

Our cover this month features the designs for the lovely new banners that are now proudly celebrating Streatham’s iconic buildings and events from lamp posts on the High Rd. Aptly, one of them celebrates the beautiful Streatham Hill Theatre. As we go to press, we were
contacted by the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre to ask us to publicise their petition to Lambeth Council to uphold their decision to protect the 1928 Grade II listed theatre from possible destruction by declaring it an Asset of Community Value. This gives the building protection from immediate development - if it is put up for sale, the Streatham community will be given the opportunity to raise the funds to take it on. Now the owners of the building are appealing to Lambeth Council to reverse their decision. The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre have until 29 November to convince the council that the theatre is worth saving. Sign the petition at: www.streathamhilltheatre.org

  4. 4. heart streatham | 5 Chalkpit – a New Pub for streatham Chalkpit opens on 2nd november in the old Beyrouth premises. It’s the brainchild of friends James and tom, who have worked in the hospitality industry for 20 years between them and saw streatham as the perfect place to launch their first site. The pair have lived in sW London for the last decade and wanted to be based locally. streatham ticks their boxes because there are already some great places to go out eating and drinking, but there’s plenty of potential for more as the area is evolving fast. We’ve been visiting Chalkpit as the refurb progresses: “it’s been a hard couple of months getting everything ready for opening, but we’re nearly there! the site’s been empty for over a year, but we saw the potential and fell in love with it”, said tom. Chalkpit is tom and James’ ideal for a modern pub: great drinks and delicious food served with a relaxed “stay as long as you want” vibe. the interior is stunning-retaining the original oak windows and using original elements to create a very stylish environment. attention to detail is crucial to the guys’ vision for Chalkpit, from a special cold room to ensure the beers are stored and poured at a perfect 4ºC - to the suppliers they are using. “It was really important to us to make sure we are proud of everything we serve, so the food and drink menus are deliberately short, and crammed with products we really love”, said James. tom runs a craft beer distribution company, so the pub has access to the best beers, meat is coming from the Ginger Pig butchers and fruit and veg will be delivered fresh from New Covent Garden market. head chef matthieu Fessard is ex-Pizarro in Bermondsey, and he’ll be hand making buns and flatbreads and getting creative with snacks on the pub’s Big Green egg barbecues and custom-built yakitori grill. We can’t wait to try it out on when it opens on Friday 2nd november! “above all we want people to treat Chalkpit as their new local. the food and drink will be great, but above all we want it to be a brilliant place to socialise and relax.” We’ll raise a glass to that!

  5. 5. 6 | heart streatham A23 Collisions Update Chris Holt, Safer A23 Campaign Provisional statistics from Transport for London show there was at least one collision every three days on the A23 in Streatham in 2017 - and, on average, every month one collision or more resulted in life-changing injuries. In total, on Streatham Hill and Streatham High Road between the South Circular and the boundary with Croydon, there were 133 collisions in the 12 months to December 2017; 14 of these were seious - resulting in life- changing injuries. Thankfully, for the second year running, there were no fatalities. The underlying trend, however, appears to be for increasing danger on the road. Although this can’t be stated with certainty as, from September 2016 onwards, the police have used a new method of recording injuries and figures for serious and slight injuries are not directly comparable with previous years (severity of injuries is thought to have been under-recorded in the past).

  7. 7. 8 | heart streatham The Streatham Gourmet visits Hood Rehema Figueiredo Hood is now three years old and is a firm favourite in Streatham, with a reputation for great modern British cuisine using the finest seasonal produce. Nothing is done by halves at Hood, so we followed suit and began with aperitifs of Peckham gin and tonic and Negroni, accompanied by a generous bowl of juicy green olives and candied nuts (all together, £21). An exceptionally polite and attentive waiter helped us navigate “specials” and the less familiar parts of the menu (cimi di rapa?), but never hurried us. He explained they had a glut of truffles in the kitchen, so all dishes were offered with a topping of truffle shavings, which was both a luxurious surprise and very endearing. I started with a ridiculously creamy cauliflower soup, and its lovely buttery texture slipped delightfully off my spoon. My partner chose a pumpkin macaroni cheese from the specials menu, and it tasted of autumn; a bowl of spiced comfort and warmth that wasn't over-filling. Starters are around £8. My main course was herb roasted Jerusalem artichokes, celeriac puree, kale, pickled girolles and truffle dressing - an interesting combination of textures and a deliciously earthy flavour. A side of greens loaded with cumin added a kick. My companion ordered a winning special again, pan fried bream with brown crab,

The fish was delicate and flaky with perfectly crisped skin, and the risotto had absorbed the flavours of the fish wonderfully. (main courses £9-£19). to accompany the dinner, we chose a citrusy Portuguese Vinho Verde with a slight fizz, which complemented both dishes well. the wine list is interesting and extensive, and there is a good selection by the glass and carafe as well as by bottle. (house white and red are £20 a bottle). after a short breather, we ploughed into dessert (ranging in price between £2.50-£9). I was presented with a delicate panacotta with a perfect wobble, accompanied by juicy figs, a drizzle of honey and slim almond biscotti, which had the crunchy snap to delight Prue Leith. Our other dessert was a rich peanut butter parfait with dark chocolate mousse and a dark chocolate wafer, decorated elegantly with drizzled salted caramel and candied peanuts. at hood the food is exceptionally good, the atmosphere is relaxed, and a range of special offers make it affordable for most pockets. there’s a two course bottomless brunch for £30, thursday pie night (pie and a drink for £14), and a pre-theatre 25% off for streatham space Project ticket holders - see all the specials at www.hoodrestaurants.com. Dinner was set to a relaxed soundtrack of David Bowie and Fleetwood mac, and the service was knowledgeable, and friendly, and warm. a memorable meal – hood deserves its top streatham restaurant accolade – and they’re taking bookings for Christmas, so get in there quick! hood, 67 streatham hill, sW2 4tX, 020 3601 3320

There are some very smart premises dedicated to male grooming on the High Rd, so we checked out a few and discovered that they’re no longer just for men. Hurrah! Just as more guys are enjoying the hair salon experience, there’s a trend for ladies going to the barber too, attracted by cheaper cuts and inviting interiors. Stylish shops are creating a warm and friendly haven for everyone. A good barber doesn’t discriminate with unisex cuts costing as little as £9, and kids’ at just £7. Here’s what their loyal customers have to say about them... With the barbershop industry growing faster than a hipster beard we visited four of Streatham’s finest groomers to see what the fuss is all about.

Leonard's church is to reinstall and rededicate its War memorial. this large wooden monument lists the names of 113 men of the parish who lost their lives whilst serving in the armed forces between 1914-18. miraculously, the tablet survived the fire that gutted the church in 1975 as, at the time of the conflagration, it had been temporarily placed in the crypt pending its re- erection in the church. For many years the memorial remained hidden beneath the church until it was recently re-discovered during renovation works, and since then it has been exhibited at the church’s annual remembrance Day service. the rector of streatham, the revd Canon anna norman-Walker, said the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War provides an ideal time to re-erect the memorial in the church. "2018 gives st. Leonard’s the perfect opportunity to reinstall the monument as a permanent reminder of the sacrifice made by the men of streatham in one of the most horrendous conflicts of the 20th century" the rededication service will be held at 10.00am on sunday November 11th and I extend a warm invitation to all those who would like to attend the service to join us for this special occasion."

  14. 14. 16 | heart streatham Streatham Remembers The First World War John Brown, The Streatham Society STREATHAM PEACE MEDAL On Friday 18th July 1919 around 7,000 Streatham school children gathered on Tooting Bec Common for a "Great Peace Fete" to celebrate the official end of the First World War. The children were presented with the Streatham Peace Medal, suspended on a red white and blue ribbon, as a memento of the occasion. The children then sang the National Anthem accompanied by the local Fire Brigade band, and there were sports and entertainments including Punch and Judy, a musical clown, a conjurer, a ventriloquist, a picnic lunch and numerous other attractions. The Fete concluded with a prize-giving and three cheers for Streatham's MP, Mr William Lane Mitchell, who had generously donated the Peace medals the children were all proudly wearing. ZEPPELIN RAID ON STREATHAM ON THE 23RD/24TH SEPTEMBER 1916 For the residents of Streatham, the horrors of war were brought to their very homes when on the night of 23rd/24th September 1916 the town was bombed in a Zeppelin raid on London. A huge German airship, the L31, sailed high above Streatham High Road dropping bombs as it journeyed northwards. The first bombs fell opposite Streatham Common Station destroying Nos 10-13 Estreham Road and killing a lady who was asleep in her bed at the time of the raid. At Streatham Hill, a bomb completely wrecked Streatham Hill Modern School at 70 Streatham Hill. The blast killed four men in a tram by Streatham Hill Station, and another passenger died soon after being admitted to hospital. During the 15 minutes of the raid, the Germans dropped a total of 32 bombs, killing seven people and seriously injuring a further 27. HILL HOUSE WAR HOSPITAL SUPPLY DEPOT In 1915, a War Hospital Supply Depot was established at Hill House, a large mansion that stood on Streatham Common North, opposite the upper pond on the Common. At its peak, up to 1,200 local volunteers worked there producing items for use in treating war casualties in Britain and in field hospitals overseas. Each volunteer contributed one shilling (5p) a week to the depot's general fund for the purchase of materials. The depot was the second largest of its type in the country and by the end of the war it had produced 684,276 items valued then at £57,731. Surgical supplies made at Hill House went to hospitals as far afield as Alexandria, Milan, Petrograd, Cannes and Malta. STREATHAM HALL PATRIOTIC CONCERT On 10th May 1916 Queen Alexandra made an official visit to Streatham with Princess Victoria and Princess Arthur of Connaught. The royal party attended a children's pageant to celebrate the first anniversary of the opening of the War Hospital Supply Depot at Hill House. The Queen had previously made a private visit to the Depot on 18th August 1915 when she met many of the volunteers working there. She made her third visit to Streatham on 25th May 1917 to attend a patriotic sale and concert at Streatham Hall to mark the second anniversary of the opening of the Depot. STREATHAM VOLUNTEER TRAINING CORPS The Streatham Rifle Club was formed on 8th September 1914 by local men who wanted to help the war effort and within a month of its foundation over 1,500 men had joined up. Akin to the "Home Guard" in the Second World War, the club mainly comprised men who were too
  15. 15. heart streatham | 17 Streatham remembers continued old for active military service. The Club had its original headquarters at 9 Mitcham Lane, and drilled on Streatham and Tooting Bec Commons, as well as the Streatham Cricket Club ground in Pendennis Road. The Club later became the Streatham Volunteer Training Corps which was initially based at the Drill Hall in Estreham Road. A drum and bugle band accompanied the volunteers on church parades and marches, the instruments being donated by the Corp's Hon. Commandant, Mr. G. H. L. Parsons, of Aldrington Road, Streatham Park. CURTIS DAIRY MAID As the war progressed, the only way the army's increasing demands for manpower could be met was through the introduction of conscription. With so many able-bodied men volunteering or being called to the colours, women had to perform traditionally male tasks to keep the wheels of industry and commerce turning. In Streatham, milkmen soon disappeared from local streets to be replaced by "milkmaids" who took over their rounds. The job of a dairy maid was a hard one involving rising at dawn to milk the cows before completing the early morning milk round, after which there were more cows to milk and another round to complete. FURZEDOWN PIG CLUB With the introduction of rationing in 1917 the demand for locally grown produce to supplement food supplies increased. Various pig, poultry and rabbit clubs in Streatham received a new lease of life to help provide fresh meat. The Furzedown Cultivation Society formed a pig club and housed their animals in wooden stie which stood on solid concrete floors with "a perfect system of drainage" to ensure a minimum of smells for the public and maximum comfort for the pigs. The sties were inaugurated by the Mayor of Wandsworth, Sir Archibald Dawnay, at a special ceremony held in 1918. STREATHAM WAR MEMORIAL The bronze statue of a lone soldier, his head bowed and his hands resting on an upturned rifle - a military sign of mourning - commemorates the 720 inhabitants of Streatham who lost their lives in the First World War. Standing at the junction of Streatham High Road and Streatham Common north, the memorial was unveiled by General Sir Charles Munro on the 14th October 1922 before a crowd of around 5,000. The statue was designed by Albert T. Toft and identical statues by the same sculptor were later unveiled at Stone in Staffordshire, Leamington in Warwickshire and Thornton Cleveleys in Lancashire.
  16. 16. 18 | heart streatham promoted Content What happens if I have no Will? anthony gold soliCitors doesn’t the law say what happens to my estate? Yes the rules on Intestacy decide how your estate is distributed among your surviving relatives. this may be quite different from what you expect. these rules were last updated in 2014 but can still have quite complex effects, especially for someone leaving both a spouse and children and, above all, for all unmarried couples who may find they inherit nothing at all. i have a common law spouse, won’t they inherit anyway under these rules? It is a common misconception that english law recognises a “common law” spouse. Only actual spouses and civil partners are within the Intestacy rules. What happens if i have no family? the estate goes to the Crown. Only if there is a Will can your estate go to friends or charity. What else happens if i don’t make a Will? a Will decides not only who inherits but also who administers your estate. If the beneficiaries cannot agree who will do this, let alone who inherits, there could be a bitter and long-lasting dispute, often leading to an expensive court case. i don’t have a Will but i’ve written a letter, everyone knows my wishes. anything less than a Will has no effect at all and can be the worst of all worlds, raising expectations that cannot legally be fulfilled and creating even more potential for family dispute. We own a house jointly so i don’t need a Will, do i? It’s another common misconception that all joint property passes automatically to the survivor; in fact, you may even have set up the original ownership so that you held separate shares but your relationship has now changed. If the shares are still recorded as held separately, the will needs to say who now inherits. i made my Will several years ago. isn’t that enough? Your circumstances could have changed in a dozen ways. The chosen beneficiaries may have died before you, so that the Intestacy rules once again apply. the tax laws may have changed so that your original intentions have been overtaken or nullified by those changes. You may even have married, when your Will is automatically revoked. christopher mcneill

In 2018 alone, Thrale has provided funds to 17 organisations with a total of £40,000 funding. People and organisations it has supported this year have included: The Advocacy Academy, where Thrale’s funds have supported three local 16 to18 year-olds to develop themselves by devising social justice campaigns The Home Cooks Project, which encourages volunteers who like cooking to get in touch with and cook a hot meal for older neighbours and make social connections for those who may otherwise be at risk of isolation and loneliness. Faiths Together in Lambeth, where Thrale’s finances have helped to make a mental health first aid course available to members of faith communities. The St. Matthew’s Project, where Thrale funded free football training for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Streatham Youth and Community Trust, where Thrale helped to fund their Good Neighbours Project, designed to bring different generations together. Thrale’s funds have supported 600 people directly this year, and up to 1,500 people indirectly. Over the past 10 years, Thrale has also made grants available to other Streatham organisations such as Spires, Basaira Elderly Centre, and Streatham Drop-In Centre for Asylum Seekers and Refugees. The Charity also runs almshouses in Polworth Road which accommodate 17 women over the age of 60. The almshouses were recently redeveloped to bring them up to modern specifications, and their high standard was praised by Chuka Umunna MP when he re-opened them in October 2015. Now, Thrale is again inviting applications from groups seeking funds. The criteria for awards are broad, with an emphasis on seeking to support organisations that relieve need and distress and align with the principle of supporting strong communities and helping people to live independently, with dignity. Applications from projects in which 50% or more of the beneficiaries are in Lambeth, Southwark, or Wandsworth, and usually they seek reassurance that the projects are not solely reliant on Thrale charity funding. Local organisations can bid for up to £5000 and are encouraged to apply – the process is designed to be accessible to all – as straight-forward and simple as possible. For full details and an application form, please visit www.thralealmshouses.org.uk. The closing date for applications is 3rd December.

  24. 24. 26 | heart streatham Don't trash our future: Recycle Wandsworth oasis Wandsworth Oasis is a local charity that was set up almost 30 years ago in the midst of the AIDS epidemic to provide support and care for people suffering from AIDS and their loved ones. The charity was set up by local resident, Patrick Lethaby, who sadly died this summer. 30 years on – thanks to medication - things have changed and HIV/AIDS is no longer the death sentence it was – if diagnosed early. HIV prevalence in the South London boroughs is much higher than the London average so it is as important now as it was in 1989 that we continue with Patrick’s legacy to raise awareness about the virus and how it is transmitted and to provide support where needed. We do this through some of the best value charity shops in SW London! If you haven’t been in to one of our shops, do pop in and grab yourself a bargain. It is getting to the time of the year when you might need a sparkling party dress, a festive jumper, stocking fillers, Christmas cards or secret santa ideas! We love a Preloved Christmas at Wandsworth Oasis! Mention Heart Streatham or bring this magazine with you and get a 10% discount too! We are also always on the look out for good quality items to sell – clothing, accessories, furniture, books, music, bric a brac etc. We will collect large amounts of saleable items free of charge. And talking of the time of year – 1st December is World AIDS Day – It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. At Wandsworth Oasis we raise awareness by hosting the Red Ribbon Cabaret – an evening of magic, madness and mayhem Wandsworth Oasis style. Expect an evening of great entertainment – this year we have a 40 minute set from one of the best Abba tribute bands in the country, Abbalicious; some amazing drag divas; and a puppet’s view of the world – amongst other things! Tickets start at just £15 for a single standing ticket to a VIP box for 10 at £220 with fizz and and an opportunity to ‘interact’ with the performers…more details on how to book opposite.

  27. 27. The conscious part of our brain is usually ‘up to something else’. Perhaps you’re checking the traffic while crossing the road, yet thinking about what you might be having for dinner and also remembering to call a friend. You shouldn’t really be ‘aware’ of a part of your body. Your shoulder or back. Your hip or knee. Your fingers or your feet. That ache or pain. That niggle or twinge. Our body runs on autopilot for most things, most of the time, freeing the conscious part of our brain for other stuff...Life! If you are ‘aware’ or ‘thinking’ about a part of your body—your body is talking to you! Each November, Leigham Practice offer a limited number of appointments for people to talk to our team of physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropodists/podiatrists, massage team and acupuncturist, informally and for free. Maybe you just need pointing in the right direction. Maybe there’s nothing to worry about and you just need an explanation. If there’s something going on, we can tell you what we can do. There’s no obligation. We’ve been supporting our local community for more than 40 years, so don’t sit on a problem allowing it to get worse—come and talk to us this November. We’re open seven days a week and four late evenings, so just give us a call!
