  7. 7. 8 | heart streatham ChriS holT, SAFer A23 CAMPAign the safer a23 Campaign is calling on the mayor of london to commit to go ahead with proposed changes to the a23 through streatham, as latest statistics from transport for london reveal that the number traffic collisions resulting in serious injuries on streatham hill and streatham high road have doubled in a year. Provisional stats for 2018 show there were 212 collisions on the a23 between the south Circular and the border with Croydon, including 28 resulting in life-changing injuries. this is an increase over 2018 in all collisions of 59%, and 100% increase in collisions resulting in serious injury. thankfully, there were no fatalities. We have been campaigning for safety improvements since 2015 and (working with streatham action transport Group) had won a commitment from tfl to spend £8.6m on a redesign of the a23 at streatham hill, where the ‘motorway’ feel of the road encourages speeding. But plans they consulted on to change the design, first promised for early 2019, have still not materialised. Francis James of the safer a23 Campaign said: “every two weeks someone suffers life-changing injuries in the heart of our community. Families’ lives are changed forever. tfl have listened to residents’ and drawn up plans to reduce the tragic toll on the a23; now we need a promise from the mayor to deliver them.” TfL figures also show the underlying trend since 2011 appears to be for increasing danger on the road. NB since september 2016, 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).

  9. 9. 10 | heart streatham Streatham Gourmet’s Punjabi Brunch SWAAD, 9 The High Parade SW16 1EX by Heloise Anderson SWAAD is a recent addition to the Streatham scene, so we thought we’d try it out with a spot of Punjabi Sunday brunch. First impressions were highly favourable. SWAAD is attractive and spotlessly clean - the décor is elegant and beautifully clean and uncluttered. Atif, the owner of this family-run business, is a pleasure to chat with, and passionate and knowledgeable about what he serves. He confessed that his mum makes even better parathas than he does, so best to return when she’s cooking them as he is still learning from her! With Punjabi cuisine, there are plenty of vegetarian options. However, we were feeling omnivorous and plumped for SWAAD specials in the form of chicken tikka and lamb sheek kebab paratha wraps accompanied by a vegetable samosa chaat. I paired mine with a deliciously delicate mango lassi, while my friend chose a fragrant freshly squeezed orange juice. Service was rapid and the food

  11. 11. 12 | heart streatham STreAThAM goUrMeT ConTinUeD looked as attractive as the décor. The paratha wraps are substantial with plenty of fresh salad inside. atif marinades his chicken tikka in yoghurt and spices, making the breast meat rich and succulent. the lamb kebab was also well spiced – enough to make my nose want to run but not enough to cause streaming eyes and flaming cheeks! scrumptious! We have seldom seen such reverence paid to the humble samosa; it was a joy to behold – an overstuffed cushion presented on a bed of chick-peas in a yoghurt and tamarind sauce. I had a surprise moment when biting into a rock-hard chickpea - it was a tamarind stone! atif’s family recipe uses the whole plant to make the sauce. Nice. the samosa itself was lush – chock full of ingredients and accompanied by atif’s Grandmother’s garam masala blend so that diners can season to taste - as well as more tamarind sauce. Without revealing any sWaaD state secrets, it contains a heady dose of cumin and some amchur pizzaz! our only very slight criticisms were that we found the parathas a little dense and the samosa wasn’t quite crispy because it had been softened by the yoghurt chickpea sauce underneath. Coffee fans can be also assured of a treat as sWaaD prides itself on specialty asiatic blends. We only spotted the full menu on our way out when a Full english walked past us – we will return! 2 wraps, a samosa plus drinks £20. FULL ENGLISH BREAKFAST PARATHA WRAPS SAMOSA ARTIF

  15. 15. 16 | heart streatham on sunday 10th November, the annual service of remembrance will be held at the streatham War memorial at 10:30am. We will remember those who died, pay our respects to those who fought, and honour those brave servicemen and servicewomen who survived. We also remember the 5 million non-British personnel who fought for Britain in the second World War. 2.5 million came from India, and the rest from africa, the West Indies, and other Commonwealth countries. an exceptional number of individuals who were awarded a victoria Cross were from streatham. 1. Arthur James Terence Fleming-Sandes (24 June 1894-24 may 1961) born at 3 Northstead road 2. Frederick henry Johnson (15 august 1890-26 November 1917). Johnson’s father ran a confectionery shop in Bedford row, known as the “Dip” on the site of the mediterranean Bakery at 157 streatham high rd. 3. Arthur Moore lascelles (12 october 1880-7 November 1918) of “Wilby lodge”, Nightingale lane, Balham. the 1881 census reports his birthplace as streatham (historic Parish) 4. geoffrey St george Shillington Cather (11 october 1890- 2 July 1916) lived at 55, Christchurch road, streatham hill. 5. James leach lived at 102 Norfolk house road, streatham, and his son is registered as being born at 118 Norfolk house road on 1 June 1918 (the streatham connection was recently discovered by andrew haddon and John Brown of the society) 6. edward “Tiny” Foster Born 14 tooting Grove, (registered in streatham) 4 January 1886, died 22 January 1946, tooting, and is buried at the streatham Cemetery. many others from streatham will be remembered on the 10th November including Percy george boswell. Percy was a 2nd lieutenant in the King’s own Yorkshire light Infantry and he lived at 26 Norfolk house road, streatham with his book seller father, lewis Charles Boswell, mother, Caroline, brother, Charles randolph, and sister-in-law Clara. Percy was sent to serve in France, and in July 1916, was involved in the first major British offensive of the war, the Battle of the somme. this full-scale frontal attack, supplemented by an intense and prolonged bombardment, was intended to cause a massive blow to the German army and ease the pressure off the French at verdun. hundreds of letters sent by British WW1 soldiers have been released by the Imperial War museum, giving insight into many young men’s last days on the front line. the handwritten messages were written on the eve of or during the battle in northern France in which almost half a million British soldiers were killed. In a letter to his family, Percy expressed his optimism about the operation. He was confident the attack would be a success and stated he was sure he would survive the battle. “I am absolutely certain that I shall get through all right, but in case the unexpected happens I shall rest content with the knowledge that I have done my duty – and one can’t do more.” Unfortunately, Percy did not survive. he was killed in action on July 1st when leading his men in attack. he is commemorated on the thiepval memorial to the missing of the somme. In 2016 the residents of 26 Norfolk house terrace marked the 100th anniversary of Percy’s death by erecting a memorial for the former occupant. streatham's vCs MArK bery, The STreAThAM SoCieTy, WWW.STreAThAMSoCieTy.CoM Lt Cather winning the VC
  16. 16. 18 | heart streatham We’ve just enjoyed a fantastic streatham Festival (11-20 october), but this year, the Festival keeps on giving, and has created a lasting landmark that will transform the access self storage site for around 18 months, For many years, the blue hoarding has been a barrier around land awaiting development. suffering from wear and tear and graffiti, local people thought it an eye-sore they feared might never go away. streatham Festival persuaded owners, access storage, to sponsor the creation of a community art project to transform the hoarding into something bright and positive and provide a new outlook for residents and passers-by, and to start some upbeat conversations about life in streatham. local schools, community groups, individual artists and collectives were approached during the summer, with a project brief to depict their feelings about life in Streatham. two Primary schools, immanuel & St Andrew’s and St Andrew’s created over 50 pieces of artwork; bishop Thomas grant and Dunraven secondary schools contributed paintings and poster designs, bringing the total to 70 designs. We couldn’t select a ‘winner’ because all the art was so special. We then faced the problem of how to showcase the colourful, vibrant and interesting details that we enjoyed, so they would reach the community? Initially, we sought one design for the entire hoarding, but that proved impractical. We needed to cover 390 m2! the sides of the hoarding have very different outlooks: streatham high road has heavy road traffic. Penistone road is mostly residential, with properties close to the site. We consulted the local Neighbourhood Watch as part of our research, feeling the hoarding needed to provide neighbours with a cheerful outlook, and offer a safe, peaceul place to linger and admire some beautiful, detailed artwork. We received two strong design proposals from community art companies, and after deliberation, decided to commission both - each to deliver a side of the hoarding. Art4Space, led by Julie Norburn got community volunteers reproducing the pupils’ images, enlarging and re-imagining them in vivid colour acrylic paints. Art Clubbers recruited a young emerging artist for our large mural. hannah o’Brien has recently graduated from Kingston University, and this is her first commissioned public artwork. hannah has now demonstrated her ability to work on a gigantic scale with a group of volunteers, and the distractions of a building site and the a23 streatham Festival’s Blue hoarding Project helen birD, VolUnTeer ProJeCT leADer Project Leader Helen Bird

We hope this will become a regular Festival feature. Judging by the support it received, there is a genuine desire to see more children and young people involved in streatham Festival. Phase 1 (Penistone road) completed on Wednesday, 23 october, with painted panels now fixed to the hoarding. Our volunteers were out in full force, putting finishing touches to the gallery and overseeing activities; Ben swept up leaves and put up our gazebo. tariq (now a star of Instagram) used his DIY skills to secure the panels. emma and her son, Jimmy, handed out our children’s interactive ‘see it - draw it’ quiz to visiting families, and met local residents. hannah’s mural will complete by end of october, and a public celebration is planned for mid-November. see www. streathamfestival.com and @ streatfest for details. Please also give us your feedback online. We asked our volunteer, amelia, ‘what do you think the project will mean to other people? It could range from something as simple as putting a smile on someone’s face, to completely turning around their day. It will mean a lot to the children who drew the original artworks, as they will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride - seeing their own individual creativity being showcased. the Blue hoarding Project has been about all kinds of people working together to provide something for their community. as well as sponsorship from Access Self Storage, harmonix Construction, and leylandSDM, we could not have achieved this without the friendly engagement and practical support that City Plumbing have given us. superstar volunteers include David harvey at Vinter’s Studios, teachers and headteachers, school pupils and parents. thank you for your involvement! We’ll continue to feature your stories and photos on our Blue hoarding web page on the streatham Festival website and social media #bluehoardingproject for all to enjoy.

  18. 18. 20 | heart streatham Streatham Senior Connections is a group of volunteers drawn from St Leonard’s, St Peter’s, Streatham Methodist and other churches. It organises activities for older people in Streatham during the holidays. This summer, ‘Holiday at Home’ organised four days of social activities for older people. About 40 guests were welcomed to St Leonard’s church, which was jauntily bedecked with bunting, deck chairs and table decorations, over the first 2 days. People came alone, in couples and in groups of friends and all participated with great enthusiasm. There was a ‘Mindful Movement’ exercise, an art workshop, and flower arranging. Singing Mamas created a choir with the group, and within an hour a glorious rendition of ‘Shona Malango’ in three-part harmony filled the church. Guests also shared memories of their holidays, good, bad, strange and scary. Guitarist and singer Javier Moreno from Café Barcelona provided the finale -beautiful music from Spain, Argentina, Brazil and the Caribbean, with the audience joining in with great enthusiasm and raffle called by Canon Anna Norman- Walker provided prizes for most of our guests. On Day3, the group visited Denbies Vineyard in Dorking, rounded off with a tea party and quiz hosted by St Peter’s Church with musical entertainment provided by the church choir. Feedback from guests was very positive: guest Katie said ‘I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the exercises. It really helped me forget my domestic anxieties’.

Showcasing the best of what Streatham has to offer, all stallholders are creative businesses based locally, either with a shopfront or working out of their homes. They sell a wide range of goods and local produce, from food, clothing and homewares, to jewellery, greetings cards, bags, artisan cheese, children’s toys and more - there’s something for everyone! The monthly market organised by InStreatham aims to give the local community the chance to purchase locally-produced arts, crafts, food and drink. The market offers a diverse, quality, shopping experience that celebrates independent makers, but more than that, it’s about people coming together, meeting the makers, catching up with friends and putting the social back into shopping. Over the years Streatham has transformed itself into a destination for visitors to enjoy our festivals and culturally diverse town. Now with lots of new retail springing up alongside this new market, it is also becoming a great place to stay and shop. So far, the Streatham Village Market has been driving footfall to the Streatham Green area and complementing the tremendous small independent shops, cafes and businesses around it. Below are some of the stall holders we’ve had since its launch earlier this summer. The offering will change at each market, so there will always be something fresh to find on each visit! The monthly market is held every last Saturday from 11am – 4.00pm, except in December where it takes place on the first Saturday of the month as part of Small Business Saturday and Lights On Streatham at the same location. The next market dates are: December 7th , February 29th and March 28th . For more information or to book a stall, email: info@instreatham.com. Alternatively, follow @instreatham on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

In 2016, we took over the Paddling Pool on streatham Common, in 2017 began regular conservation work in the local Nature reserve, and in 2018 we began restoring the Cascade Garden. lambeth Council has now awarded sCCoop a new two- year contract. excellent as this is, it is worth £46,000 a year less than before, though we plan to maintain current levels of services and investment, so we are more reliant than ever on fundraising and support from the community. We are appointing new rookery Garden’s manager, bringing fresh energy and ideas to sCCoop. With the Friends of Streatham Common, we are close to renewing our sponsorship deal with Douglas and Gordan, providing vital funds for the next three years. Planning for our biggest annual fundraising event, the rookery Christmas Fair on sunday 8th December is underway. Please come and support us and enjoy a wonderful festive day. sCCoop has been chosen to benefit from the next round of the Co-op local Community Fund, so Co-op members will be able to choose us as their local cause. every time a member buys selected own-brand products, 1% of the money spent goes to their choice of cause. You can join online at https://membership. coop.co.uk/new-registration. We are always grateful to our volunteers and supporters, who are the backbone of the organisation and all play a huge part in keeping the gardens looking great, improving conservation, and keeping the pool open.
