Child cycle training and Toddler Bike Market coming to Brixton Hill on 19th August

As part of a series of free, learn-to-ride sessions this summer holidays organised by Lambeth Council, there will be an event on Saturday 19th August in Windmill Gardens.

The idea of the session is to help parents and guardians teach their children to cycle. Experts from Peddle My Wheels will show you the easiest and most effective way of getting kids cycling. As they describe the training, ‘hopefully some of them will be riding on their own by the end of the session but if not you’ll know how to finish the task off and in no time they will be able to ride around the park on their own…and there will not be a stabiliser in sight!’

If they need a bike there will be a selection of affordable second-hand bikes for sale averaging £15, with some new children’s helmets available also for £15.

All ages are welcome, no booking just turn up from 10am to 3pm. Bring your child with their bike and helmet. The session is aimed at children 6 and under but older kids are welcome.

Application for Clapham Park ‘masterplan’ submitted – public events next week

The planning application for the Clapham Park Estate area was submitted on 31 July, with new plans to increase the number of affordable homes and public amenity space from the previous plans following the stock transfer of the estate to Metropolitan Housing.

Metropolitan say the new design will allow them to improve housing standards further and increase the delivery of affordable housing. The amount and quality of amenity space has been increased from the original masterplan and a comprehensive package of sustainability measures – including living roofs, bat and bird boxes, Car Club availability and electric vehicle charging points – is provided as part of the planning application.

They add that the submission of the planning application, which follows a large number of consultation events, marks an important step forward in their ambition to continue to revitalise the area for residents and the community, and to fulfil their obligations under the stock transfer agreement.

Metropolitan will be holding public events on 15 August (3–8pm), 16 August (9am–12pm) and 19 August (1–5pm) at the Pop-Up Shop on Kings Avenue, SW4 8EU, where information about the proposal will be provided.

The Great Get Together on Sudbourne Road this Sunday

DB-iG1xWAAA_ilhThis Sunday will see the return of the Sudbourne Road street party as part of the national event, The Great Get Together.  This invites people to get together with their neighbours to share food and celebrate all that we hold in common, inspired by Jo Cox, the MP killed on 16 June last year.

Sudbourne Road’s event takes place from 2pm until the evening on Sunday 18 June and features a shared lunch, kids’ activities, a chill-out tea and cake area, and plenty of music and other activities.

The Street Party is a free get together – it’s not a political event or a fundraiser – but an occasion to bring friends and neighbours together to share food, music and entertainment. Councillors will be there to support the event.

Clapham Park Masterplan to be unveiled this week

In January, Metropolitan Housing held the second round of consultation events on the Clapham Park ‘masterplan’. Residents spent time designing their ideal community hub, new buildings, open spaces and streets at the interactive workshops.

Following the creative workshops, Metropolitan will be unveiling the masterplan for the first time at drop-in events on Saturday 25 March 11am to 3pm and Thursday 30 March 3pm to 8pm. Both events will be held at the Pop-up Shop, next to Sainsbury’s on King’s Avenue SW4 8EU. You still have time to influence the final masterplan so please go and let them know what you think.

The latest edition of the newsletter @claphampark is now available and information can be found on their website www.metropolitan.org.uk/for-customers/claphampark.

Tickets for 2017 guided tours of Brixton Windmill now available

Brixton Windmill is open to the public for guided tours from March to October and tickets are now available for the first open weekend of the year 25/26 March.  Tickets for the open days can be booked on the website of the Friends of Windmill Gardens. Tickets will be released one month prior to each Open Day weekend.

Because of the limited space inside the windmill, the number of people that can go on a full tour is limited to three adults or two adults and two children. This means that tours can be booked up very quickly. If there are cancellations, the Friends advertise these on Twitter at @brixtonwindmill. Short tours to the first floor are also available on the open days.
