We are delighted that two bicycle sheds have been installed on our estate.
Rowland Hill House: Space for six bicycles next to the residents’ hall. Contact BikeAway (01752202116) to rent a space.
Vaughan House: Space for six bicycles at the North-Western end. Contact Cyclehoop (02086991338) to rent a space.
Helen Gladstone House: Sorry, we have not been able to agree a location to date due to concerns of infringing the grounds of the (privately owned) adjecent freehold (maisonnettes). If you would like to support getting a cycle shed for HGH, please come to our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 15th of May at 7pm at the community hall.
Many thanks for everybody who attend our summer party.
Despite the miserable weather, we counted nearly 40 guests, and received much positive feedback on both the catering and the band.
After petitioning for a long time, Southwark Parks and Leisure have finally agreed to install gates one Nelson Square, in a bid to reduce both the noise- and crime problems we have been experiencing.
Thank you all for bearing with us for such a long time, and also for giving us your signatures for the petition.
The installation date is yet to be confirmed, but hopefully, it won’t be long now.
The work will be carried out by RH Wrought Iron, 42a Banyard Road, Rotherhithe, London SE16 2YA
Many residents have reported annoyance at the noise levels on Nelson Square, particularly during the night.
We have brought this issue to the attention of the council via our housing officer Debbie Ming, and our councilors.
The initial response is that Nelson Square does not fall under the remit of housing, as it is a public park, which also means the noise team is unable to deal with it.
The recommendation currently is:
Call 101 (police non-emergency number) and report noise when it happens
Keep a diary of disturbances
Contact Southwark Parks
