  6. 6. 6 | heart streatham which attracts c.10,000 people, have applied to Lambeth Council for a 3-year licence. There was general objection to this at a poorly- publicised public consultation meeting last month. Grounds for objection included litter, drug taking and other anti- social behaviour by Kisstory- goers in neighbouring streets, traffic issues, the removal of a large part of the Common from public use for almost 3 weeks and, of course, noise. The FoSC is very concerned that the Common has still not recovered from damage by events held last year and propose a fallow year of non-use for events before it should be subjected to further stress. Lambeth events’ representative at the meeting was asked how much money the organisers paid for the use of the Common, and how much was returned to the Common in compensation. The reply was that the info. is “commercially confidential”, though surely a FOI request will reveal all in due course. The Safer Valley Road campaign’s recent public meeting addressed the problems of speeding, road rage, pollution and increasingly heavy traffic in Valley Road.  The 20mph speed limit is not enforced and speed bumps are ineffective. Sign the petition on to demand measures to slow down and reduce traffic on Valley Road. Lambeth Council have installed new 20mph banners on some Streatham roads including Leigham Court Rd. and Streatham Common North side - these are excellent reminders, and we'd love some more on Valley Rd. please. Wandsworth Council is cutting the funding of Riggindale Rd-based 4th Streatham Sea Scouts’ boathouse in Putney, home to the sea scouts for decades and in constant use by over 100 members throughout the year for training for the regatta season, the Great River Race, and for regular camps, rowing trips, and expeditions.

  7. 7. 8 | hearT sTreaTham We recently welcomed a new food business in streatham, London smoke and Cure, who held a smoke-themed winter supper club at their smokery in the atmospheric cobbled Gleneldon mews. The “Inside the smokehouse” pop-up offered us the opportunity to try treats from the smoker and get some tips on how to smoke your own food at home. around a dozen diners sampled smoky delights at an evening co-hosted by owner ross mitchell and local chef, forager, and fermenter, rachel de Thample. After a welcoming drink, we indulged in five courses of smoked and cured foods. Tastings included smoked pickles and homemade kraut, followed by a most delicious cold-smoked salmon with dried bergamot, lemon aioli, winter herbs and wild leaves with a lemon verbena dressing. To follow these, ross’ maple fennel bacon accompanied a celeriac and sage carbonara and purple kale as a delicious main course. Feeling replete, we needed a break before indulging in a scrumptious pud of cinnamon meringues with smoked apple and bonfire toffee. The evening was rounded off with a wonderful selection of smoked english cheeses, preserves and walnuts. To encourage us to try smoking produce at home we were given a sample of wood chips. many types of wood are used for smoking including alder, beech, and oak chips as well as fruit woods such as apple, cherry and plum. London smoke and Cure only use locally sourced British ingredients. They have a well laid out website where they offer a wide range of smoked fish and meats, cheeses, gifts, hampers hand-made and prepared to order with a wholesale option. While there is no retail facility in streatham, there are hands-on workshops available at the smoke house where you can learn curing techniques for salami, bacon and cured salt beef.

  9. 9. 10 | hearT sTreaTham streatham action Transport group has sent their damning report on streatham’s Train services and demand for measures to compensate streatham rail users to the Department for Transport, network rail, and GTr. The report captures the extent of problems experienced by streatham’s rail commuters from mid-2018 onwards based on a survey of 500 commuters and data from network rail: · 36% of trains through streatham were either cancelled or severely late after the 20 may first timetable change by GTR · 36% of respondents to the survey were forced to change their route to work from streatham and stopped using GTr services. Despite service improvements towards the end of 2018, streatham is very poorly served and we have asked network rail to bring forward signalling infrastructure upgrades by five years on the south London metro lines. GTr have been asked to reconsider its timetable to ensure that streatham’s commuters return to using their services. The DfT should support this demand and review the current franchise arrangements with GTr again if there is no evidence of improvements by august 2019. see the full report at We have asked GTr to compensate streatham customers via * A ONE-OFF 20% rEDUCTiON iN THE rENEWAl COST OF SEASON TiCKETS *rEClASSiFiCATiON OF STrEATHAM AS ZONE 2, rATHEr THAN ZONE 3 I will be reporting on the response to these demands in a future issue. streatham's rail Fails NEil SAlT, CHAir, STrEATHAM ACTiON TrANSpOrT GrOUp # Streatham £50 photo competition winner Photo of the Month Competition - win £50! nick Wright, who is a professional photographer, took this gorgeous winning shot of streatham Common at sunset in march.

  11. 11. 12 | hearT sTreaTham harold John milford was born in streatham and brought up at 67 medora road in Tulse hill. he married marion heather in 1940, the same year he joined the raF, and was commissioned as a Pilot Officer on 9th August 1941. He became famous for being part of The Great escape from nazi prisoner of War Camp stalag 111 in sagan, poland,immortalised in a 1963 hollywood blockbuster starring steve mcQueen, James Garner and sir richard attenborough. milford arrived at stalag 111 in october 1942 after his bomber was shot-down while attacking a power station at Chocques on september 22nd. The crew bailed out, buried their parachutes and split-up. The pilot evaded capture and returned to england but milford and the gunner were pulled from a haystack and imprisoned in the camp. on the night of the 24/25th march 1944 milford was one of 76 men who escaped. he survived freezing weather and blizzards but was recaptured in the afternoon of the 27th march. early on the morning of 6 april 1944 he was murdered by the Breslau Gestapo - 50 of the escapees were shot by the Gestapo. originally cremated and buried at sagan, he is now buried in part of the poznan old Garrison Cemetery. The photograph of the prisoners of War at the camp is thought to include harold milford, second from right sitting at the table.

  12. 12. 14 | heart streatham Since 2016 English Heritage has been asking the public to propose women to feature on blue plaques - only 14% of London’s blue plaques are for women. Lambeth’s shortlist includes several names with Streatham connections: Ursula Vernon Eason (1910-1993) BBC radio broadcaster, television producer, and administrator. A pioneer of television programmes for deaf children in the 1950s and 60s, she lived at 83 Mount Nod Rd. Joyce Lankaster Brisley (1896-1978) Writer and illustrator of the Milly-Molly- Mandy series of children’s books. Her sisters Ethel and Nina were also illustrators - all studied at the Lambeth School of Art and lived with their mother at 108 Lewin Rd. Dorothy Louise Meiha (1876- ). Suffragette. The family lived at “Limatburg” around 1884 at 34 Ambleside Ave. Leonora Tyson (1883- 1959) Suffragette. Lived with her mother and siblings at 37 Drewstead Rd. Angela Carter (1940- 1992) was a novelist who wrote The Magic Toyshop, Nights at the Circus and Wise Children. She attended Streatham and Clapham High School and apparently English Heritage have considered and agreed a Blue Plaque. Hannah Barlow (1851- 1916) The first woman artist to work for Doulton in 1871 - sister Florence followed in 1873, and sister Lucy also worked there. They lived at 55 Loughborough Park from 1880-1893. Henry Doulton lived at “Woodlands” in Streatham on the edge of Tooting Common Christina Broom (1862 –1939) The first UK female press photographer, noted for pictures of the suffragettes. Circa 1901 she and her husband opened a stationers’ shop at 87 Streatham High Road and sold postcards made from Christina’s photos. Patricia Hayes (1909- 1998) Actress and RADA Gold medal winner, she lived with her parents at 129 Pathfield Rd. Lambeth will shortly be considering a borough plaque scheme which allows the public to put-forward names for a plaque (outside the aegis of English Heritage). Wandsworth’s scheme has resulted in several plaques recognizing individuals and historic events in the Borough. The scheme will add to the single blue plaque for Sir Arnold Bax in Pendennis Road and other plaques placed by the Streatham Society.

This one-hour treatment is designed to treat dehydration and nourish the skin. Therapist alba took me downstairs to the phytomer Treatment room, which is one of four beautifully designed spaces in a subterranean oasis under our bustling high street.

The massage room was a calming space and emma talked me through the treatment and made me feel very comfortable. The massage was thorough, invigorating and de-stressing - all at the same time and emma ensured I was enjoying it throughout. she used a vegan VOYA organic oil which smelled divine. I was given 15 minutes at the end to just be in the moment and enjoy the benefits of the massage. after dressing I was offered a lovely green smoothie shot and again there was no rush to vacate the spa. I was also given a little goodie bag with some sample products.

I usually last about 10 minutes in a sauna but did this session without a struggle. The heat has a meditative effect and prepares the mind for the massage. Therapist ayshia is a muscle magician who really cares about her clients. her new meditation massage is getting great reviews too – perfect for depression and anxiety. Finally, I had a Vino Perfect Claudalie facial. By this point, I was half asleep! my skin was soft and super-glowy, I felt rested and as light as air, and a week on, still feel refreshed.

  16. 16. You are a commercial tenant running a business from premises and you now want your landlord to grant you a written lease for a fixed term. You may have been paying rent monthly or quarterly for some years, but your landlord has still not given you a fixed term lease. What can you do to force the landlord’s hand? rights under a periodic tenancy It is likely that you are a periodic tenant and if you have been in occupation of business premises paying rent for more than 12 months, you will have become a protected business tenant with the rights granted by the Landlord & Tenant act 1954 part 11. as such the landlord cannot simply terminate your lease by giving you one month’s notice. They would need to serve you with a statutory notice under the 1954 act giving you not less than 6 nor more than 12 months’ notice and you will then have the right to apply to the court for a new lease on terms to be agreed or decided upon by the court. Can you require the landlord to grant a new lease? If the time has come that you need the certainty of a fixed term lease, perhaps in order to grow or sell your business, you will not be able to serve on the landlord a notice under section 26 of the 1954 act requesting a new lease. The right to do this only applies to tenants whose tenancy was granted for a fixed term exceeding one year or for any term and thereafter from year to year. so, what should the tenant do? Negotiate with your landlord a periodic protected tenant should be in a strong position to negotiate a new lease with the landlord who would be keen to regularise the position. Without a lease, the landlord cannot unilaterally increase the rent, or regulate the use of the premises or prevent the tenant from sharing occupation or assigning its tenancy. It is unlikely that the landlord could easily sell its interest in the property while a protected periodic tenant continues in occupation for an indefinite period. Taking legal advice It is best to seek legal advice first before finalising terms with your landlord to ensure that the terms of the new lease are not onerous and reflect the terms of your existing oral tenancy. Where there is a dispute with the landlord taking steps to terminate the tenancy without offering acceptable new lease terms, it is important to seek legal advice to your rights and how to protect your position.

  23. 23. heart streatham | 27 Streatham RedHawks Ice Hockey Report David Carr Streatham ended the NIHL South 1 season in sixth place after a rollercoaster year in which Alex Roberts and Andreas Siagris were standouts. Roberts was the fifth top scorer in the league, while Siagris was selected to represent GB Men’s University hockey team in the Universiade in Russia, where he scored a goal in a win over the Swedes. It was an experience he will never forget. “It was a great event”, explained the 21-year- old student, “The welcoming and opening ceremonies were wonderful as were the athletes’ village, ice rink and the competition excellent…” Streatham has also announced a change in coach for next year as incumbent Jeremy Cornish has decided to step down for personal reasons and will be replaced by current captain Adam Carr. "Adam has a wealth of hockey knowledge and has been working closely with Jeremy over the past two seasons", explained General Manager Graham D'Anger, "I feel he will make a great coach and will endeavour to give him the same support I've given Jeremy. With his experience on and off the ice, Adam knows what it takes to win, and we are looking forward to challenging for, or indeed adding to some long awaited silverware next season." Streatham will begin their season again in September so keep an eye out over the summer for details of fixtures and ticketing.
