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

Dear Resident, following the stabbing last autumn, a mobile phone robbery took place recently on Nelson Square.
Our councilors have this message for you:
Dear Resident, Robbery Warning-Nelson Square
On Monday 5th March a young male resident was threatened and robbed of his mobile phone and money by two young men, one of whom was masked, just after 7pm while he was walking through Nelson Square. Although he was not physically hurt he was understandably shaken up by the incident.
Can we please ask residents to be very careful in light of this incident and to report any suspicious activity in or around Nelson Square to the police dialling 999 if you think a crime is likely to be committed and 101 if you have any intelligence about the incident on Monday or if you see any further suspicious activity.
We would like to reassure you that robbery is very unusual in our ward but we want to have zero tolerance for this type of behaviour, and would ask that residents look after each other to make it clear that this is not a place where we will tolerate crime.
Since the re-design of Nelson Square last year there has been an increase in levels of anti-social behaviour in the summer months, which has led to requests from some residents for the square to be locked at night. The alternative is to consider the option of putting lighting in the square. If you have a view about your preferred option please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
If you have any information about the robbery on Monday please contact the police on 101 quoting the following reference CRlS 3006453/18 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to report information anonymously.
With best wishes
