  8. 8. 8 | heart streatham Chuka Umunna resigns from Labour with our MP, Chuka umunna making headlines, he gave us this message. “I am very grateful for the overwhelming support I have received from constituents…I pledged to fight..a damaging Brexit and to protect the jobs and livelihoods of my constituents. I am a proud supporter of the People’s Vote campaign to give you the final say on Brexit, with Remain on the ballot. I hoped I could influence Labour to do the same, but the leadership is determined to pursue this Brexit…My decision was about more than Brexit. The Labour leadership has overseen a culture of bullying and antisemitism, which shames the party..I’ve helped 17,000 constituents with case work and important issues. I look forward to continuing this work as part of the Independent Group.” streatham greens decided on a dignified silence when asked to comment. lambeth labour group: “We are saddened and disappointed that Chuka Umunna has resigned from the Labour Party. He had been a strong local MP…We have consistently campaigned for a People’s Vote, in line with the views of Lambeth residents…” streatham Conservatives President, Neil salt: “He chose to move his family home away from Streatham.. he chose to leave the Labour Party.. (We) call upon Chuka Umunna to confirm his commitment to stating categorically he will stand as a candidate for Streatham at the next General Election.” lambeth liberal Democrat’s Helen Thompson, prospective streatham Parliamentary Candidate: "We respect the principled stand Chuka Umunna has taken…. The Liberal Democrats have been working with like- minded MPs… to push for a People's Vote on the Brexit deal with an option to remain in the EU.” we asked whether Chuka is committed to streatham for the long term “Yes, Chuka remains committed to representing Streatham in Westminster as an Independent Group MP."

Jeremy was a regular on a number of panel shows on radio 4 including I’m sorry I haven’t a Clue and News Quiz. he also wrote and recorded 50 episodes of Jeremy hardy speaks to the Nation and demonstrated his versatility by appearing in Blackadder Goes Forth(1989) and presenting top of the Pops (1996). speaking to the BBC last month, impressionist rory Bremner remembered his friend as "a kind and compassionate man" who "cared more for people and causes than fame and fortune". "he was unique in the way he delivered thoughtful, intelligent comedy," a life-long socialist, Jeremy hardy’s political views were often reflected in his work. Until 2001, hardy wrote a column for the Guardian newspaper in which he regularly expressed his support for the socialist alliance. Jeremy is also remembered for his comments on the class distribution of streatham during the heavy snow last winter. “we found out who all the posh people in streatham are, because they turned up with their skis on streatham Common.” Jeremy was a supporter of the streatham space theatre and was in the audience for several shows last year. r.I.P Jeremy hardy. Comedian, 17th July 1961 - 1st February 2019

  12. 12. 12 | heart streatham Local hero - John rhodes When John rhodes (77), retired, he and his dogs registered with Pets as therapy (Pat), and became area co-ordinator for the charity, which takes suitable pets into care homes, hospitals and schools to cheer people. John’s beautiful dogs, Dolly (15), and Digby (16) have retired but can be seen at John’s stand at KIte DaY, Country Fairs, the Christmas Fair at Kings College school, Wimbledon and the rookery Christmas market, helping him raise £1500 a year for Pat. For the last 10 years John has led the group organising the annual scruff’s Dog show on streatham Common. entries have grown from about 50 to 150 dogs per show now, with c.2,000 people attending, raising £600-700 for the Friends of streatham Common (FosC) and Pat each year. as well as serving on the committee for the FosC, John is a founder of streatham Common Community Garden, he was a trustee for 5 years and still runs a stall selling produce during harvest. When streatham Common Co-Operative needed £5000 a year to keep the children’s paddling pool open, John came up with the idea of a Doggy splash Day. Now every October dogs go for a romp in the water while stalls raise funds for the pool before it is drained for the winter. enquiries about donating items for the pool fund led to the stall for the Pool, which John runs outside the rookery Café from splash Day to the rookery Christmas Fair, and now at the monthly rookery Farmers market. he is rightly proud that his activities over the years have generated so much money for the causes he supports. “I love streatham Common. It feels like a village in the heart of urban sprawl -and it has the best dog walking community in south London!” said John. We couldn’t agree more! Thank you, John, for your outstanding contribution and commitment to our community.

During the summer term they also play in festivals against other clubs across London. the club is actively recruiting for new players, ahead of the summer season, and all are welcome, regardless of experience. the Club is run by volunteers, many of whom are parents of players. It was recently awarded Community Club of the Year 2018 for London & south-east by the London rugby League Foundation in recognition of the rapid growth of its mini section, the success of the Men's first team in winning their league, the addition of a second men's team and the launch of the first Women's rugby league team in London. the mini Bulls were recently mascots for London's only professional rugby league club, the London Broncos, in their return to the super League. Not only did the minis walk out with the players, but they also played matches on the pitch in front of the crowd at half-time. the week before two of the London Broncos players passed on some great tips as they helped to take the minis session.

First the team has two home fixtures in the regular season, hosting Peterborough Phantoms and Invicta Dynamos on the 2nd and 16th march respectively. “the last few games have seen large crowds, which makes all the difference” said head Coach Jeremy Cornish. “In the last game against Peterborough the atmosphere really rubbed off on the players…. even though we lost the game I think the crowd appreciated the effort the guys put in.” streatham players have hit milestones in the last few weeks with adam Wood scoring his 100th point for the club and defenceman James Warman making his 200th appearance. the emergence of local players alec Goldstone and Brett shepherd has also been great for the club, who are keen to develop as many of the juniors as possible with teams going down to under 9 level. “everyone wants to see local players pulling on the streatham jersey!” said redhawks Gm Graham D’anger. streatham juniors have a learn to play scheme on monday and Wednesday evenings offering free loaned equipment and taster sessions for 4-9-year olds.
