Heart Streatham Issue 41


Published on

Welcome to Heart Streatham’s 41st edition. the trees are budding and the early flowers are blooming as we write this in right, warm spring sunshine. this month's cover is the iconic streatham Pumping station on Conyers rd which can be seen from the railway lines as well. We have superimposed alper Yagmur, owner of el Chico's Mexican restaurant (see review - p12), who became hero to many by organising deliveries of bottled water to elderly folk and others who couldn't make it to the delivery points when the water went out. When his restaurant’s water was cut he and his staff decided to work instead for the benefit of the community and we salute that!

Children were delighted making various kinds of snow sculptures, and some even had a day or two off school. Despite the snow, a reception to celebrate streatham held by Chuka umunna mp at Portcullis house was well-attended. Lambeth Council and tfL have at last agreed to measures to prevent heavy goods vehicles from using residential roads west of streatham high road. satnav companies will be informed that Drewstead Road, Woodfield Avenue, Mount Ephraim Road, Woodfield Grove, Mount ephraim Lane, Norfolk house road, Kingscourt road, and De montford road are “Unsuitable for hGVs”, and 5 new “Unsuitable for hGVs” signs will be installed at the entrance to roads. residents on other roads are keen to get some attention too. residents of Pathfield Road, who have suffered increased rat-running and parking congestion since the partial closure of Estreham Road to northbound traffic as part of the Quietways cycle route, finally persuaded Lambeth Council to consider their problems and a public meeting was held last month to ask for views on measures to mitigate problems Tfl are considering options for the redesign of the a23 from streatham hill station up to telford ave. they showed some ideas at a community meeting with streatham action Transport Group. TfL’s analysis identified the whole a23 corridor through Lambeth as having great potential for more cycle journeys - if made safe. Ideas include wider bus lanes and footways or segregated cycle lanes. these would involve removal of the central reservation and straight-across pedestrian crossings. the long-overdue work should take place in late 2019/20. We were pleased to hear tfL make positive noises about reducing speed limits to 20mph-more than 4,000 were caught breaking the current 30mph speed limit in one 24-hour period at streatham hill. March saw significant damage to Streatham Common from Circus Zyair vehicles. apparently, road works on streatham Common south meant that ground protection trackway was not delivered. the event organiser is responsible for the costs of all reinstatement, and to allow for works and recovery, the usual benson’s Funfair visit has been postponed to the end of may, and there are no events until Kite Day on the 13th may.

  7. 7. 8 | heart streatham Soapbox april 2018 On Saturday 3 March, major water mains and sewers around Streatham buckled in the aftermath of the Beast from the East. By Sunday, over 12000 homes were without water, and a crisis unfolded. Thames Water had to set up two bottled water distribution points at Homebase in Streatham Vale, and Sainsbury’s in Balham, to which residents had to make their own way - for many, this meant a four-mile round-trip on public transport. The incomparable Streatham community sprung into action to help deliver water to vulnerable residents who couldn’t manage the trek. By Monday the council bought its own supply of water for the vulnerable, and collection points were opened by council and volunteers to ease the burden. Cllr Malcolm Clarke’s delivery team were based at Gracefield Gardens, while Cllr Scott Ainslie set up his distribution HQ in the White Lion and Cllr. Robert Hill at the Woodlawns Centre. The hero of the day was local restauranteur Alper Yagmur, owner of El Chico’s restaurant on the High Rd. When the restaurant closed because it had no water supply, and there was no accurate information about when it would be restored from Thames Water, he visited their engineers on sites to gather info “from the horses’ mouths”. Alper then drafted his delivery vans to take water to residents in need and social media was ablaze. The story was picked up by national media from Heart Streatham’s twitter feed, and Alper was interviewed on several major TV and radio channels. Many residents and businesses were affected for up to five days. “Five days without being able to wash dirty plates, five days of being unable to flush toilets, and five days without being able to bathe their children”, as Cllr. Mo Seedat put it at the time. In the aftermath, Thames Water published this table of compensation information on its website, together with a set of FAQs which included stating that compensation for residents in rented accommodation (council, private housing associations etc.) are directed to claim it from landlords themselves. Time Affected Compensation Payment 4-12 hours £30 12-24 hours £50 24-48 hours £100 48+ hours £150 Some of the FAQ answers from Thames Water’s website are eyebrow-raising! “You resupplied water to my area, but an airlock in the system meant we didn’t get water back on for a while after this – do I get compensation for this whole period? “As airlocks aren’t generally caused because the water has been turned off, but due to air being trapped in the internal plumbing system within a home, we will not be giving compensation in this situation…fittings and internal plumbing should be set up in such a way that when water is restored, the air is displaced and cleared from the system.” My water was off for longer than 48 hours. …. “the pressure may not have built back up to normal levels... the problem may have been within the customer’s own pipework. It will be difficult for us to confirm exactly what may have been the problem at a specific property, but we have carefully calculated the time people were without water and are confident that the payments we are making are fair.” I had to close my business for several days because I had no water. Will you compensate me for my loss of business/profit? …Compensation for loss of profit is normally only payable when it is as a consequence of material/physical damage caused to your property. This was not the case on this occasion, so your loss of profit… is not recoverable in law.” Water Distribution at Sainsbury's Balham

  9. 9. 10 | heart streatham Thames Water seems to be claiming that airlocks in residents’ domestic systems were a cause of delay in water being back on after TW pipes were repaired to justify not giving the full £150 to many of those who suffered without water for more than 48 hours and were expecting the maximum compensation as their due. We asked Thames Water “how are you able accurately to estimate where airlocks were located in the pipes to assess the duration of outage and the sum you believe customers should be paid?” We’re not engineers but is seems odd that the ingress of air is a problem that is suffered mostly by pipes that are the responsibility of home owners and not Thames Water. As we go to press, we have not received an answer from Thames Water. Businesses should contact Castle Water, which is responsible for administering payments for Thames Water’s (the wholesaler) non-residential customers. Castle Water wants to identify non- residential customers that were affected and ensure it has accurate details of their supply issues. Contact details are in the Castle Water advertisement on page 18, and at John Reynolds, CEO of Castle Water advised, “a non-residential customer may be entitled to a compensation payment of £50 a day in the event of loss of supply…” He also offered to come to Streatham to meet business groups to help clarify and speed the process. Cllr Jennifer Brathwaite, Lambeth Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport (part of the cross-London scrutiny of Thames Water since 2015) at the time of the incident commented, “Thames Water failed in its responsibilities at every turn. It needs to be held to account and this must never happen again.” Jane Wroe-Wright Alper Yagmar at El Chico's

  11. 11. 12 | heart streatham ariba el Chico’s! rehema Figueiredo he was the hero of streatham’s #watergate last month, but on my visit to el Chico’s owner alper Yagmur let his food do the talking. First up were some chicken tacos with juicy jalapenos and chipotle sauce, as well as classic nachos with a fresh salad – both served with exquisitely mushy guacamole and sharp soured cream. the dishes had a good balance of guacamole and sauce, and the taco shells were perfection; not so brittle they disintegrated as you bit into them, nor so soggy that the filling fell out. these dishes are usually served as mains, but starters come in anywhere between £4.50 and £7.50, giving diners scope to tailor order to fit appetite. The tacos and nachos portions were a good size, the latter slightly bigger but not as filling as the tacos. Next came some cute quesadillas, which would have been small for a main, but among the rounds of dishes we were being brought, were ample as a second course. however, the sizzling fajitas were the showstopper! sticky and sweet, accompanied by a stack of hot tortillas and a generous selection of dips. When a beef burrito was served, we were pretty much defeated. Packed with meat and slathered in cheese, it would be the right dish to choose had you gone a bit overboard on the margaritas but otherwise, a word of warning, only order it if you are a seriously hungry hombre. my dining amigo and I visited el Chico’s on a Friday night when the place had a warm buzz about it, with a youngish crowd, mostly under- 30s, and a strong Latin soundtrack. el Chico’s is the perfect end of week hang out, and with prices to rival ‘spoon’s it’s streatham’s hottest spot for post-work drinks, with cocktails a speciality. We tried a beautifully presented strawberry daiquiri and a wickedly zingy Cipriano. If you’re just after a beer, a Corona will set you back £3.95 or you could share a bottle of wine from £15.95. What’s more, el Chico’s runs specials in the week – from ladies night on tuesdays to date night thursdays – so you won’t have to worry about your wallet when you’re making your way through the mojitos. We were served by a very bubbly waitress and overall the whole thing felt like a fiesta, transporting us from the snowy streets of streatham to a beach bar in tulum. You’ve really got no choice but to join in the fun! el Chico’s 62, streatham hill, sW16 020 8677 5100

  13. 13. 14 | heart streatham Daisy-cutting on Streatham Common The Cricket Season begins on Friday 13th April. The earliest mention of the sport was in the late 16th century, and by the 18th century it was the national sport. Streatham Common has a long cricketing tradition, with a match between Streatham and Clapham on Monday 26th July 1731 recorded in The Daily Advertiser. From 1736-1758, George Williams, the licensee of The White Lion pub captained the side and provided refreshments at matches. On 5th May 1806 the Streatham Cricket Club was formed at the pub. Membership was originally restricted to 40, with an annual subscription of five guineas ensuring an exclusivity limited to those who could afford the membership fee. For almost 80 years, home fixtures were on Streatham Common. In January 1807 the rules of the Streatham Cricket Club decreed that the season would start on the second Saturday of May and continue every Saturday on Streatham Common until the last Saturday in August. Furthermore, any gentlemen playing in coloured jackets, breeches or pantaloons would be fined half a crown. The great sportsman C. B. Fry was a member of the club in the early days. He was so admired internationally that it was rumoured he was invited to become the King of Albania; he apparently politely declined. In 1856, an area at the bottom of the Common was roped off for the game, with various teams

Streatham Cricket Club subsequently moved to a ground now covered by Gracefield gardens, named after the great cricketer W. g. grace, who played there on a several occasions. It was considered one of the most attractive grounds in england. after the First Word War, the Club moved to thornton heath on a ground now used by Streatham and Croydon rugby Club. Over the past few decades, streatham Cricket Club has merged with local sides Streatham Wanderers Cricket Club in 1973, the old hollingtonians Cricket Club in 1977 and lastly with the marlborough Cricket Club in 2003, since when the club has been known as The Streatham and marlborough Cricket Club with its home ground at Cox’s Walk, Dulwich Common.

  15. 15. 16 | heart streatham RedHawks Round-Up Streatham's 2017/18 season ended at the Play Off quarter final stage as they lost 6-2 on aggregate to the Swindon Wildcats over two legs. The RedHawks faced an uphill battle after losing the first leg on home ice 2-0 thanks to a brace from Cats Player Coach Aaron Nell but came tantalizingly close to an upset in Wiltshire. A brace from Ryan Webb had given Streatham a 2-1 lead at the Link Centre in front of a 1000 plus crowd, but three unanswered goals in the final 21 minutes put the Wildcats through to the semi-final where they will face Peterborough Phantoms. "The season might be over earlier than I had hoped, but I think we can hold our heads up after our display last weekend" said Captain Adam Carr. "A couple of bounces the other way at the right times and we could have got through to the semi-finals. Swindon are a top team who are in the best form in the league, so gutting as it is to go out, we gave it our best and came up short." Streatham finished in 6th place in the National Ice Hockey League Britton Conference, in their first appearance in the second tier of UK hockey since the early 1990's. Head Coach Jeremy Cornish overhauled the squad last summer in anticipation of the higher standard but had a budget considerably less than the teams who dropped down into the league. "It's been a tough year as everyone expected, but we have held our own and more" said Carr, who finished as top goal scorer with 23 in all competitions." Even when we had a losing streak, we stuck together and kept working and fighting…. We beat every team in the league apart from Peterborough, which is a big positive…Our fans also deserve the highest praise as they have backed us and followed us round all year loud and proud." The RedHawks will now look forward to the 208/19 season in September. Let’s go, Streatham! Meanwhile the junior teams continue to show progress with u18 forward Alec Goldstone recently called up for England trials at u19 level and seven players called up for England duty at a tournament in Bratislava in April. Samuel Lyne, Dylan Holicka and Louie White will pull on the famous white and red England jersey at under-13 level. Harry Corkum and Amy Robery both got a call up for the under-14s with Edward Gibson named as a reserve. Jessica Wooding got the nod for the under-14 girls team.

In 2015, the club re-started the minis at Under 7s under head Coach Philippa robson, and there are now more than 50 boys and girls regularly attending sessions on saturday mornings. most of the children attend local primary schools including Hitherfield, St Julians, telferscot and Woodmansterne. they are coached by a team of enthusiastic parents lead by Philippa, as well as a few of the men's side, and supported by the London rugby League Foundation, who also run development sessions in local schools. sessions take place all year during term time, and during the summer term there are regular festivals against other clubs across London and the south east - from Croydon and richmond to as far as medway and Brighton. they have also played in festivals before the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley and an england test match at the Olympic stadium, where they had the privilege to meet the england team before they played australia. In 2016 a men’s’ side was launched by Jack Baker, a former Captain of the Oxford University rugby League side who moved to streatham. the team is a great mixture of the original minis, all from the local area, former Oxford University players, and various new additions. they won the 2017 London Championship in only their second full year. matches are played from april to July on saturday afternoons, with home matches at Woodmansterne. On 21 april, Brixton Bulls is holding an Open Day for boys and girls for both minis at 10.30am and Juniors at 12 noon at Woodmansterne Playing Fields. there has been strong interest from local secondary schools. the men are expanding to a second side this year, so also actively recruiting new players - training is on Wednesday evenings at Woodmansterne. Following the launch of the Women's super League last year, the club is also launching a Women's team to play in the Women’s merit League. training will be on thursday evenings at Woodmansterne, starting in early april.

  23. 23. 24 | advertorial Summer is Coming… 10 Key Tips for IPL or Laser hair removal Summer is just around the corner and many of us will soon be wearing less clothing. Rather than constantly shaving or epilating hair we don't want to show when the weather's warm, we can remove it permanently and relatively pain-free using lasers and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments. The investment is worthwhile when you consider the average British woman spends £8000 over her lifetime on hair removal products and treatments Both techniques are effective at permanently reducing unwanted hair growth. Here are the most important things to consider. • Always consider the cost of results not the cost of treatments. People are often taken in by cheap offers for treatments. Always ask whether your clinic will guarantee your results like Brigstock Skin and Laser does. • Choose a CQC registered clinic. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the ombudsman that regulates all healthcare services. A CQC clinic’s systems, training, governance and standards are regularly scrutinized by an independent inspector. • Check the training and experience of your technician. Operating Laser and IPL machines requires skill and experience to assure good results. • “Laser or IPL?” Both laser and IPL use light to destroy hair follicles by heating up the melanin in them. It really doesn’t matter whether this is generated through lasers or intense pulse light. Some modern machines like the Soprano laser are designed specifically to be as comfortable as possible, but treatments may take longer than many IPL treatments. • Do not pluck, wax or thread for at least six weeks before treatment because the laser or IPL needs to react with hair follicles in their growth stage. If they are removed before treatment, the light will not have anything to treat, and the hair will grow back. • Always have a patch test before treatment and and ensure your full medical history is taken to determine the safe and effective settings for your skin and hair type. Some medical conditions and medications can cause issues - another reason to only use reputable medical clinics rather than beauty salons offering similar treatments. • "No hair will return after my course of treatment has finished?" Both laser and IPL treatments only target hairs that are in their growth stage, so you will require a series of treatments over several months to achieve the best results. • Avoid sunbathing immediately before undergoing any treatment, as it limits the treatment’s effectiveness. • Follow the treatment plan your technician prescribes. No two people have the same skin and hair, so treatment must be customised for you. The best results are achieved by working with a highly skilled, experienced technician over several treatments delivered at precise intervals to coincide with your natural hair growth cycle. Brigstock Skin and Laser Centre offer a FREE initial consultation on 020 8683 6730. Your results and satisfaction are completely guaranteed, otherwise we treat you for free.

  25. 25. 26 | heart streatham Bishop Thomas Grant Legacy 100 Project To commemorate the centenary of the Great War, every month we are publishing extracts from BTG School’s work with Professor Richard Grayson of Goldsmith’s College to research the stories of some of the Fallen who were from Streatham. Rifleman John Russell and Rifleman Robert Alfred Edmund Brunt 1st/5th London Regiment (London Rifle Brigade) Killed in Action 1st July 1916 Russell lived at 7 Rydal Road, while Brunt was from 30 Norfolk House Road. Both men died on 1st July 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme. The battalion ‘took up their position in the assembly and front-line trenches’, ready for their advance. From the battalion War Diary, it seems the mission started successfully, with the first waves of men moving by 7:27am. The diary details ‘The lines advanced in excellent order and the movement went like clockwork, so much so that by 7:50am, all our objectives were reached’. However, the mission deteriorated quickly. By 8:07am, they began to face opposition in the form of ‘machine gun fire’ and ‘heavy bombing’, which led to ‘bad casualties’. By 8:45am they were ‘forced to withdraw’ and their mission wholly ‘failed on account of the lack of success by the division on our left and also because we were unable to get the Reserve Company across with the supply of bombs that was so urgently needed’. From this account, it is most likely that both men died between 8:07am and 8:45am when the battalion faced the heaviest fire from the enemy. Both men are remembered on the Thiepval Memorial.
