  4. 4. 6 | heart streatham SCCoop update Since 2015, The Streatham Common Co-operative (SCCoop), a community run social enterprise, has managed the Rookery on behalf of Lambeth Council. In 2016, we took over the Paddling Pool, saving it from closure, in 2017, started regular conservation work in the Streatham Common Local Nature Reserve, and in 2018 started restoration of the cascade garden. We run an apprentice scheme and provide work experience for local students. Sponsorship deals bring in additional income, we support corporate volunteering, and receive additional funding from local trusts. With our partners Streatham Common Community Garden and the Friends of Streatham Common, we have established regular volunteering sessions resulting in restoration of the Rookery gardens and many conservation projects. We have partnerships with local charities, support many events over the year, and run popular events like the Rookery Xmas Fair. We have worked with the Council and local business to improve use of assets such as the Playground, the Inkspot Brewery, the Rookery Café, and we support more businesses through the Rookery Farmer’s Market. SCCoop’s contract with the council ends in October 2019, and a procurement contract notice is expected to be published in June, with a submission date of July. We’ve been told to expect the future budget to be around half the current amount. We have a business plan based on what we think is likely to be in the procurement notice; through more fundraising and community support, we believe we can demonstrate capability and enough added value to win the new contract, deliver services in the Rookery and continue our wider agenda. However, we must plan for all possibilities. We’re hoping to recruit a new Rookery Garden’s Manager and are exploring making savings by combining some services outside the Rookery with those now provided by the council for Streatham Common. We will still fund the apprentice scheme and current horticulture and staffing levels until the end of the 2019/20 budget period, but from 2020/21 more fundraising is needed to keep current staffing and service levels. This is an uncertain time for us, so if you like what you see, please let us know at

  8. 8. 10 | heart streatham This month we celebrate the life of Bridged Hall who sadly passed away last year, leaving a husband, son, stepson and grandson. Bridged was a lifelong Streathamite and local campaigner, leading numerous local initiatives and campaigns. She started with improving her street and went on to help start the Unigate Woods project. A fire was lit, and she went on to create Sustainable Streatham: a highlight being a bicycle powered film on Streatham Common. Bridged was a passionate environmentalist and nature lover. She helped to set up the Streatham Common Community Garden, as well as securing funding to install planters all over Streatham. In 2010, Tesco and Lambeth Council agreed to build a temporary ice rink on Streatham Common during the construction of the new Ice and Leisure Centre. This was a red flag to Bridged and she formed “Hands off Our Common” to stop it happening. Two years later, another red flag waved as Lambeth Council sought to close Streatham Tate Library, so Bridged formed “Friends of Streatham Library” and successfully prevented the closure. Bridged loved textiles and had the idea of creating a quilt of Streatham High Road which members of the local WI worked on in sections. The quilt was displayed at Streatham Tate Library when it re-opened following refurbishment. She was involved in many other local initiatives, always with the aim of ensuring local people felt heard and included, for this was her passion and talent. Following Bridged’s death, family and friends funded a memorial bench which has just been installed on Streatham Common. As the plaque says, quite simply, She Loved Streatham.

  10. 10. 12 | hearT sTreaTham With a sequence of awareness- raising weeks this summer such as maternal mental health and World Wellbeing weeks, family health is high on the agenda. previously taboo topics like maternal and paternal postpartum depression are being discussed alongside debates about how screen-time and educational pressures impact child development. In streatham, a new community alliance of therapists - pregnancy and parenthood specialists - has formed to meet the growing and varied wellbeing needs of the family; from fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, to postnatal care. Founder and mother of three, madia rashid rahiman, said, ‘We can often forget our own needs when focusing on our children. our specialist team support and signpost families throughout their parenting journey, making the navigation process clearer and easier through our team approach. someone might see our reflexologist or acupuncturist before conception, our Independent midwife, nCT teacher and massage therapist during pregnancy, our physiotherapist, craniosacral therapist, lactation consultant and nappy consultant after the birth, and our creative writing practitioner and Children’s occupational Therapist throughout their journey. our specialist (yet team) approach means that we can confidently refer parents to another professional, knowing they will be in good hands. pregnancy and parenthood specialists also run Free live Q and a sessions online to generate greater understanding and dialogue between parents and therapists about what parents need and what the team can offer. www.pregnancyand Facebook & Instagram @pregandparenthoodspecialists physio4me 07914 864 904 www. physio4meuk Therapy alliance’s mission to support Family health MaDIa rashID, ChartereD PhysIotheraPIst

  15. 15. heart streatham | 17 The hustle and bustle of Streatham today is far removed from the peace and tranquillity of the small country village described in a new book by local historian, John W Brown, Streatham Village. The ancient parish church of St. Leonard's is the sole survivor from that time and is the oldest building on the A23 with the tower dating back to 1350. The book describes some of the long-lost buildings in the village, from the large homes of the rich and famous to humble farm labourers’ cottages – and there was a village lock-up by Streatham Green, where drunks were confined overnight! Streatham and Tooting Bec Commons provided pasture for livestock and recreation, and in 1771, Tooting Bec Common was the site of much excitement when King George III came to Streatham to witness army manoeuvres. The Streatham Workhouse was on Tooting Bec Common and the poor of the parish were housed – there until 1836. The Rector of Streatham lived in a grand house called the Rectory, visited several times by Jane Austen who came to see her friend, the Rector’s wife, Catherine Bigg-Wither. Another visitor was his nephew, Robert Southey, the Poet Laureate, who wrote Goldilocks and the Three Bears to entertain his uncle's children. John Brown will be launching Streatham Village at the Streatham Society meeting at Woodlawns Centre, 16 Leigham Court Road at 8 pm on Monday 3rd June, when he will give an illustrated talk on the local history of the area as part of the Wandsworth Heritage Festival. Streatham Village is £5.99 from The Streatham Society bookstall or £7.50 by post (cheques payable to The Streatham Society) from 125 Thornlaw Road, West Norwood, London SE27 OSQ Streatham Village

  17. 17. are proud to support Streatham Food Festival Banana Bread Veolia Food waste recycling in Lambeth Last year in Lambeth, Veolia collected approximately 3,000 tonnes of food waste for recycling, equal to 3,750,000 loaves of bread! All of the food waste is turned into compost, which is used for Lambeth residents’ gardens, community projects and parks. It’s always best to reduce the amount of food waste we produce and then recycle what we can’t avoid. Here’s a great recipe to use up any bananas that’ve gone a bit too brown: You can find more delicious recipes and tips on how to reduce food waste at Ingredients • 125g (4oz) butter • 120g (4oz) caster sugar • 3 eggs • 3 large very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed • 225g (7 1/2oz) self-raising flour • 1/2 tsp baking powder • 2 tsp ground cinnamon • 1 tsp mixed spice • 100g (3 1/2oz) sultanas or dried apricots, chopped into little pieces • 1 tsp vanilla extract • 1/2 tsp salt Method 1. Preheat oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. 2. Grease and line a 1kg (2lb) loaf tin. 3. With an electric whisk, beat the butter and sugar until pale, light and fluffy. 4. Beat in the eggs one by one until well combined. Then add in the remaining ingredients. Fold everything together until evenly mixed. 5. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for 50- 60 minutes, until golden brown. A skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean. If the top is darkening too quickly, cover it with foil. 6. Once done, remove from the oven and leave to cool in its tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. 7. Cut into thick slices and serve with butter. Visit Veolia’s stall on Streatham Green, Saturday 22 June to find out more about food waste

  33. 33. 42 | hearT sTreaTham once a curiosity hidden behind a fence on Tooting Common, the Woodfield Pavilion is being re-opened and returned to public use. at the first opening in 1933, alderman samuel Cresswell announced that the pavilion and grounds were to be ‘preserved for all time for displays, games, and sports. For years they were a hub of activity before the pavilion fell into disrepair as Wandsworth could not afford the upkeep. By 1986 the ground had become an unmarked grass sward and was leased to the Waldorf school. after a decade-long effort by residents, the pavilion has been refurbished and modernised and you are invited to join us to celebrate its’ rebirth at the Woodfield Recreation Ground off abbotswood rd on Sunday 30th june. From noon until 5pm there will be a fair with stalls, music, games, workshops, food and drink with a formal opening at 2pm. The renovations were made possible by The national Lottery heritage Fund, Tooting Common heritage project, Veolia, and the Western riverside environmental Fund. We hope to make The Woodfield project a space to gather, teach, learn, and play with community- building, wellbeing, and ecology central to future projects for people of all ages. We need help to flesh out the future of our project. The trustees and members of The Woodfield project have held fairs, sponsored walk, built insect hotels, and run horticultural sessions. We have thought long about the design of a building for community use: about toilets, a multi- purpose space, a changing room, a meeting room for hire and a kitchen. But we need help to flesh out the future of our project. The Woodfield Project is returning the Pavilion to community use. If you are interested in volunteering or collaborating with us, please get in touch via See you on 30th June!
