For our stations, the sums are: streatham: £80,000, streatham Common: £30,000, and streatham hill: £30,000. the rules for allocating funds allow the cash to be pooled towards a project at the stations deemed the greatest priority by all streatham station users, but only if regular users of the other two streatham stations agree it to be the best use of the money. We have long been lobbying for step-free access at streatham station - streatham Common and streatham hill are already accessible. It may be most beneficial for Streatham if we seek to pool the £140,000 and request that it is allocated towards this long-awaited Network rail project. sat is launching a Streatham Passenger Group comprising 3 representatives from each station and 2 from sat. the Group will be a link between Gtr as overall train operator for both southern and thameslink, and regular train users. Please email vicechair@ by 31st July with your views about: i) a project for your regular station, or whether monies should be pooled towards step-free access at streatham station? ii)are you willing to be a representative on the new streatham Passenger Group? neil Salt, Chair, Streatham action transport

  6. 6. 8 | heart streatham Issues on Streatham Green The fight against crime and anti-social behaviour in Streatham is being hampered by the lack of reports and records of incidents, so police and the council are unaware of problems. The situation at Streatham Green (next to Brickwood Café by the Manor Arms), plagued for more than a decade with ASB and crime, has brought the predicament into sharp relief. Businesses and the public are complaining about drug dealing, drunk and disorderly behaviour, public urination etc. The culprits are making the Green feel a threatening and uncomfortable place for local people to use. A Streatham Green “Summit” was held involving key stakeholders (including Police and Councillors) to try to find a solution to the problem. It emerged that Lambeth Council have received only a single report about ASB and crime there since 2013. CCTV seems the obvious answer but it’s a Catch 22 situation - the Council haven’t sufficient evidence that crime and ASB are taking place to justify the expense of installing and monitoring it. Local people and businesses must play their part and report incidents so that they are investigated and dealt with, and so appropriate resources are secured to deal with the actual level of crime and anti-social behaviour that is taking place. However, reporting incidents is not straightforward, and can be a frustrating experience. Report to Police Crime, road traffic incidents, anti-social behaviour, missing people, fraud, lost property, and stolen vehicles should be reported to the Met. Police. Apart from 999 emergencies, the Metropolitan Police website ( is probably the quickest way to report, then the 101-telephone number. See the email and phone numbers of our local police teams in the “Useful Numbers” section on page 34. Report to Lambeth Council You can report Anti-social behaviour to Lambeth Council. ASB includes dog fouling and spitting, dumping, graffiti and street urination. It can also include “acting in an aggressive, intimidating or destructive manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household”. Call 020 7926 5000 or report it online via the “Noise nuisance, pollution and anti-social behaviour” page on the website. Jeremy Clyne, Chair, St Leonard’s Safer Neighbourhood Panel.
  8. 8. 10 | heart streatham Independents’ Day UK is an annual campaign to celebrate independent retailers, focused on July 4th, which highlights the important role they play in their communities. While the campaign runs for just a month, its vision is to help change consumer habits long term, creating more sustainable towns and communities Independent businesses account for approximately 65% of the 290,000 UK businesses. In streatham they make up 70% of the businesses trading here and are at the heart of our local community, offering tradition, creating jobs, and contributing to the local economy. here is the story of mediworld, a family-run medical retailer based in Streatham for over 40 years! Naveed Khan, mediworld Director “my parents started the business in 1973, selling surgical instruments to doctors. they were often asked about other items which they would offer to source. slowly, the range of products grew and mediworld started stocking product, from dental to veterinary, mobility, disability and now there are more than 2,500 products in our range.” who are your customers? “there’s no other store in the country offering both medical and mobility/disability ranges. We supply care homes, medical schools, colleges and universities, laboratories, GPs, private hospitals and clinics all over the UK and have been approved suppliers to the Nhs, United Nations and moD for over 30 years.” what does being an independent business mean for you? “everything is run from our offices in Streatham. Despite our global reach we are very much a local business and in terms of services we tend to not stray far from our doorstep. Our social media is run by a local ‘digital mum’, as is our graphic design, and our accounts and insurance broker are around the corner. I grew up here and attended Crown Lane Primary school, with many afternoons spent playing football on the Common! how has your business been able to adapt to changes over the years? “as a business we constantly face threats to our survival. When a high street chain bulk imports at low quality and price, we cannot compete financially. as an independent business we have a duty to make sure that anyone who walks through our doors gets the best possible product at the most affordable price.” in 2002, mediworld moved 5 doors to a bigger premise as their product range increased and they launched their online store five years ago. “there’s been a real upturn over the last decade with many independent businesses opening up in streatham. I believe the Instreatham BID team have played a massive role -streatham thanks you for the hard work and great strides you have made. residents like mel Larsen & Pauline milligan who established community events like the Peace Festival and Food Festival should be applauded, as should Jane Wroe Wright & Lee alley for setting up heart streatham magazine. there are so many unsung heroes who have selflessly pioneered real positive change in our community and high street! Our business rates were increased last year by 34%. When you visit your local independent store, please remember that whilst they might be fighting corporate battles with banks, insurance companies, overseas suppliers and even government departments, they see you as an individual and will always try their best to make sure your needs are met to the best of their ability.” Join the conversation online using the hashtags #streathamIndies and #heartstreathamIndies.

Streatham Cricket Club is the oldest cricket club in streatham and was founded for the “Gentry” of the Village in 1805. as streatham grew in the mid-19th century the game became popular with all the classes in the area and by the end of the Victorian era, streatham boasted a total of 72 clubs including tradesmen’s teams such as the streatham early Closing Cricket Club and the streatham Wednesday Cricket Club. Both played on Wednesday afternoons when it was traditional to close shops. Other clubs either represented a church, school, police, a family or the gardeners and coachmen who worked in the grand houses of the area. streatham Cricket Club initially played on streatham Common and later moved to the area which is today angles and Pendennis roads. Gracefield Gardens was named to celebrate one of england’s most famous cricketers, W G Grace, who, on 10th July 1901, played on the ground on the first of several times for London County. the ground also saw Jack hobbs play in 1904 when he was run out for 73 and took the single wicket of Cyril m thomas, the headmaster of Cheltonia College, 45 tooting Bec road. a Zeppelin bomb fell on the ground in september 1916, killing a donkey. streatham Cricket Club merged with several clubs over the years and in 2003 the last merger saw it become Streatham and marlborough Cricket Club, which today plays in Dulwich. many streatham cricketers played County cricket including sir Kingsmill James Key, C.B Fry, Neville miller, K s ranjitsinhji, arthur stoner and andy sandham. sandham was born in streatham and played 14 test matches between 1921 and 1930. he made the first triple century in Test cricket; 325 against the West Indies in 1930 and scored over 40,000 first-class runs. John major, the former Pm played a few games for streatham Cricket Club’s Colts in the 1960s when living in thornton road sW2 Raman-Subba-Row was born in Pendennis road in streatham in 1936. he played for surrey and Northants and between 1958-61 played 13 tests for england. he became The Bowler WG Grace

  14. 14. heart streatham | 21 Plastic Free streatham about Us! Plastic Free groups are popping up all over the place these days for very good reason: twelve million tons of plastic pollution is finding its way into our oceans every year. even more is dumped on land, in our lakes, rivers and buried in the soil. Plastic can take hundreds of years to decompose, ultimately breaking down into dangerous and harmful micro particles in our seas. the production of plastic is also contributing to global warming and therefore climate change. We formed Plastic free Streatham at the end of last year, following a post on streatham mums Network about environmental issues. Councillor Nicole Griffiths (Green Party), suggested we form a group with the aim of reducing waste and single use plastics in the local area. From our experiences of attempting to become plastic free in our own lives. we decided to work to encourage others in the community and local businesses to reduce their reliance on single use plastic. For clarity's sake, single use plastic products are used just once before being disposed of. these include plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, drinks bottles and most food packaging. Very few plastic items go on to be recycled. Plastic Free streatham is now a team united in their aim to help create a single use plastic free streatham high road. We are committed to raising awareness among the community about both plastic and other environmental issues; providing information to help us all live a more sustainable and zero waste lifestyle. since launching Plastic Free streatham, we have researched and understand recycling and waste disposal methods in our area. We have met Veolia, the company responsible for Lambeth’s waste and recycling, and visited the Western riverside Waste authority (WrWa) to see for ourselves how waste and recycling is processed. We have created a website full of tips on how to live plastic free, providing local information and a directory of businesses who are sUP free already. We have organised a Plastic Free February challenge, a film night and a workshop on Food Waste Prevention. We have launched a campaign to reduce the use of single use products (both plastics and others) and are engaging businesses and community groups to take part. We are very excited about the campaign and hope the local community will support us and be part of this ground-breaking initiative.

  15. 15. 22 | heart streatham at the beginning of June, we launched a campaign with local businesses to reduce the use of single use plastic in streatham and promote the concept of ‘zero waste.’ By zero waste we mean trying to produce as little waste as possible. We developed an online survey alongside a Pledge and Certificate system. A business can pledge to become plastic free or gain up to two certificates which they can display on their shop windows to allow customers to know they are part of the Plastic Free streatham scheme. ● Plastic free status ● Zero Waste Scheme We want to encourage streatham residents to shop ‘plastic free’ by using their own shopping bags, to use reusable cups rather than take away ones, say ‘no’ to straws etc. Going plastic free should not cost businesses or individuals more, but the reverse; the less waste we produce, the better it is for our pockets and for the planet! Businesses might be tempted to replace plastic single-use items with alternative products but if customers bring their own (cups/ containers etc.), this may not be necessary. a few local businesses have already acted to phase out some of the items listed on our certificates and/or introduced schemes aiming to reduce waste. If you run a business and would like to pledge or find out more about the Certificate system, please ● Contact us by emailing and we will visit you. ● Or complete the survey using the address below, and we will get in touch. https://plasticfreestreatham.typeform. com/to/d2nLvb meanwhile, members of the Plastic Free streatham team are already visiting businesses on the high road! We will report on our progress via our Facebook page, twitter, Instagram and on our website. We will mention all businesses who are already plastic free or pledging to be so. If you run a business, please contact us to find out which certificate might apply to you. If you would like to nominate a business, then please contact us and let us know. We are pleased to announce that the following businesses have gained certificates so far. thanks to instreatham BID and for supporting this campaign. art & Craft baby Spinach batch & Co blackbird bakery Café barcelona Chalkpit Estate Office Coffee fish tale hood Perfect blend Streatham Space Project Streatham wine house trevo brasserie tribe V We will have more businesses to add to this list over the summer, as the campaign continues!

There were about 450 spectators and competitors. Judges included Rosena Allin-Khan (MP for Tooting), Cllr Jane Cooper (Mayor of Wandsworth), Jacqueline Said (the Dogs of Tooting Common), Jennifer and Lauren (from Streatham Hill Vets), and Downtown Woof. Classes included Most Handsome Dog, Prettiest Bitch, Young and Junior Handlers, and Best Trick. In the Young and Junior Handler classes, children had to take their dog for a trot around the ring, and then make them sit still, which is sometimes surprisingly difficult. The Best Puppy class was judged by Rosena Allin-Khan MP and a large group of children, who enthusiastically voted for Pretzel the cavapoo. Otis the Jack Russell won the Best Trick class by popular acclaim for his moving portrayal of “the injured soldier”. Many thanks to the stalls and exhibitors who came to the Show: Downtown Woof, Pupsicle (ice cream for dogs), Wandsworth Council (Parks & Events Police, Dog Control Service, and Animal Welfare Service), Strays of Greece, Black Dog Bakery, Streatham Hill Vets, and Stranger Naans.
