Brixton Hill Labour councillors are introducing a second surgery each month to make arrangements more flexible for Brixton Hill residents and business owners to raise issues with us.
The new surgery takes place on the third Thursday of each month except August, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Blenheim Gardens Community Hub, 23 Prague Place, Blenheim Gardens Estate. The first surgery will be 6.30pm on 21 June.
This is in addition to the current surgery on the first Saturday of each month (except August), 10am – 11am at the Roupell Park Community Centre by Hyperion House, Upper Tulse Hill.
Following a review of the security and safety of Chuka Umunna MP’s advice surgeries over the summer, these are now back up and running with some minor alterations.
Telephone surgery: You can call and speak with Chuka’s team (on 020 8835 7062) every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10.30am and 1:00pm. Please be aware that the telephones can sometimes get very busy so please keep trying if you can’t get through straight away.
Drop-in surgery: Every Wednesday Chuka’s team holds a weekly drop-in surgery between 10.30am and 12.30pm. You do not need to book an appointment to attend, the surgery operates on a first come, first seen basis, and takes place at Gracefield Gardens Health and Social Care Centre, 2-8 Gracefield Gardens, Streatham, SW16 2ST. Please note that the surgery is with Chuka’s Caseworkers.
Chuka’s surgery: Each week Chuka holds a surgery for his constituents. Please call the constituency office on 020 8835 7062 or send an email to Chuka.Umunna.MP@parliament.uk if you would like to discuss making an appointment.
Given the imminent closure of Lambeth Town Hall for refurbishment, councillors’ surgeries can no longer take place there. From September, Brixton Hill councillors will hold their surgeries on the first Saturday of each month except August at Roupell Park Community Centre, Hyperion House, Upper Tulse Hill, between 10 and 11am.
We are hoping to hold a second surgery each month at a different location in the ward, likely to be on a weekday evening for those who find weekends difficult.
In addition Cllr Martin Tiedemann holds a monthly Spanish language surgery for the Latin American community at IRMO, Unit 8, Warwick House, Overton Road, London, SW9 7JP
Councillors in other parts of Brixton hold their own surgeries elsewhere – details of all Lambeth councillors here.
