This year’s Community Pride awards are changing. Incredible Edible Lambeth are managing the ‘Blooming Lambeth’ awards for gardens and food growing. 

Residents can nominate themselves/neighbour but the deadline is June 16th. Entries can be posted to Getting Involved at Blue Star House or emailed to bloom@lambeth.gov.uk. The awards ceremony will be held 12 October at the Garden Museum, Lambeth Palace.

If residents were thinking of food growing but have not started yet, Lambeth have partnered up with Urban Growth to provide help and support with this http://urbangrowth.london/  

If residents are interested in starting such a project please contact Flora@urbangrowth.london or ring Lambeth on 0207 926 3401.

Norwood Foodbank needs supplies – can you help?

Norwood Foodbank is experiencing a busy summer and has low stocks – we need you to donate. Next time you go shopping, could you pick up UHT rice pudding, custard, toilet rolls and biscuits. They also urgently need nappies in sizes 4plus, 5 and 6.

As the school term approaches, the foodbank also needs donations of school uniform appropriate for schools in Norwood and Streatham – no logos and all sizes!
