Celebrating Brixton Windmill

Friends of Windmill Gardens

Lambeth Council staff will be fundraising for Brixton Windmill next week with a Halloween-village fete-Diwali-Bonfire Night mash-up at Olive Morris House. Staff will be making and selling food, with an emphasis on cake, to raise funds as well as organising village fete type games and collecting donations. The lunchtime event will be on Thursday 5 November.

The following week, the Friends of Windmill Gardens are holding their autumn General Meeting on 11 November 2015 at Market House, 443 Coldharbour Lane. They will be reviewing all that has been achieved over the past five years and outlining plans to celebrate Brixton Windmill’s 200th anniversary in 2016 and go forward to the next five years.

The meeting will be followed by a thank-you party for everyone who has helped with this fantastic project, including all the guides, stewards, tour organisers, bakers, millers, gardeners, events organisers, communications team and fundraisers and everyone who has worked so hard to make the windmill and the education project such a great success. The party is invite-only – please email info@brixtonwindmill.org.uk for more details.

Donations to the Friends can also be made via PayPal at www.brixtonwindmill.org/friends-support-us

New Town Hall plans to be considered on 1 September

YNTH-sketchThe plans for the redevelopment of the Town Hall and Olive Morris House, and the new Civic Centre on Brixton Hill will be considered by the Planning Applications Committee on 1 September.

Councillors who are members of the PAC will consider the plans along with submissions from the public, Historic England and other stakeholders.

As well as the new offices for Council staff and facilities for council functions like the registry office, almost 200 new homes are planned for the various sites.

Members of the public may attend the meeting, although only those who have made representations in advance will have the opportunity to address the Committee so that their concerns can be taken into account. The meeting takes place at Room 8, Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton Hill at 7pm on Tuesday 1st September.

Agenda papers are available online.
