That is until you meet Sharon Bassey who looks after the hives at Southwark Park, Stave Hill Ecological Park and Galleywall Nature Reserve. Sharon was voted London Beekeeper of [...]

Scouting in SE16

When I met Eddie Langdon at the Scout House on Jamaica Road, the day was spitting rain and we ran inside to get out of the wind. Grim though the exterior of the building on the corner of Southwark Park may look, inside it is a rabbit-warren of rooms, halls and corridors. Eddie keeps the [...]

Neighbourhood Planning

The story of ‘The Big Society’ - which was proclaimed the flagship of the Coalition’s policies - is one of disappointment and then disappearance.
