A proposal to upgrade Hackney Wick station has won £8.5million in funding from the GLA

A Wick-ed upgrade N £8.5million project to upgrade Hackney Wick Station has been announced. Improvements are set to include new routes to reduce journey times to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; moving the station entrance to street level; a new and enlarged concourse; lifts for step free access; and the creation of a north-south walkway for passengers and pedestrians through the railway embankment. The proposals were put together by the Council and London Legacy Development Corporation, which is responsible for running the Park and its facilities. The bid was then selected for funding by the London Enterprise Panel. Jules Pipe, Mayor of Hackney, said: “The confirmation of funding for the much-needed upgrade of Hackney Wick station

A

The confirmation of funding for the much-needed upgrade of Hackney Wick Station is excellent news is excellent news. The new routes, reduced journey times, and better facilities for passengers will be a boost for the local economy, existing businesses, and the generation of new job opportunities around the Park. “This development is part of the Council’s ambition to improve four key Overground stations in Hackney, a long-term project which will bring huge benefits to residents and businesses and help

unlock the full potential for jobs and investment across the borough.” The proposals to improve Hackney Wick station will compliment other work to transform the 2012 Games press and broadcast building into tech hub iCITY, and the creation of new neighbourhoods including East Wick as part of the Olympic Park’s transformation. These developments are expected to deliver new business space,

creating thousands of job opportunities for residents, a range of local facilities and thousands of new homes. The Hackney Wick station improvement, due to be completed by 2016, was one of four projects across London to secure a share of £40million from the London Enterprise Panel. The panel acts as a forum for London’s businesses, boroughs, the Mayoralty, Transport for London and other key organisations to encourage private sector growth in London. London Works is another East London-based project, which has secured £100,000 to help talented young people from low income backgrounds find their first role in London’s financial and business services sector. The next stage of approval for all the projects is assessment by the Greater London Authority’s Investment and Performance Board.

Celebrate the Windrush nurses

Singer/songwriter Annie Lennox officially opened the newly refurbished Clifden Centre at Homerton hospital this month

INGER Annie Lennox officially opened a modern sexual health centre at the Homerton hospital which specialises in treating and supporting people with HIV. The Clifden Centre recently underwent a £2million transformation, and the new space now provides superb facilities in a relaxing setting to deliver treatment, advice, and support for sexual and reproductive health issues. The centre includes the Jonathan Mann Clinic for HIV patients. The former Eurythmics frontwoman is the London HIV ambassador. Opening the clinic on 1 October, she

S

If only the rest of the world could visit this wonderful hub in Hackney said: “If only the rest of the world could visit this wonderful hub in Hackney. “I have been touched by countless stories of men, women and children who have been affected by HIV. For many people, these are no longer stories of despair, but stories of hope. Advances in treatment mean that HIV is no longer a death sentence. “People on effective treatment are living healthy, fulfilling and long lives. This new clinic at Homerton

hospital is a fantastic facility that will help more people get the world-class treatment that they need.” The number of people with HIV who use the hospital has doubled in the last 10 years. The Clifden Centre is like a ‘one stop shop’ for all aspects of sexual health, from prevention, to treatment, to lifelong care for those with chronic conditions. It offers a sexual health outreach service for young people and confidential

advice for anyone who needs it. The centre has also been instrumental in the drive to reduce teenage pregnancies in the borough. Professor Jane Anderson, who also spoke at the opening event, applauded the determination, vision, faith and hard work of all involved. She said HIV patients who once felt isolated, lonely and fearful, were now ‘cared about and cared for’ at the centre.

AN exhibition to mark the contribution of nurses from the Windrush generation will be held in Dalston as part of Black History Month. It is 65 years since the first immigrants came to the UK from Jamaica onboard the SS Empire Windrush. Between 1948 and 1973, up to 100,000 nurses from the Caribbean and Africa came to work and train in the NHS. The average age of the Windrush nurses was 19. Many were based in Hackney and went on to dedicate over 40 years to the health service. The Windrush Nurses and Beyond Foundation was set up last year to commemorate their work. The foundation is holding a ‘Windrush Voices Workshop and Exhibition’, from 16 to 19 October in St Mark’s Church Hall, Dalston. It is based on interviews with over 60 nurses and aims to highlight their often untold stories. The event coincides with a season of free events, entertainment and educational activities to mark Black History Month in Hackney.

feature 5 MUD patch in the middle of nowhere’ was how Hackney Wick was described in a 1978 episode of ‘Doctor Who’. This expanse of wasteland has since become home to a wave of entrepreneurs who are transforming the urban landscape. The latest being the team behind the new Truman’s Brewery. A brand that is already synonymous with East London, the original brewery was established in 1666 when Joseph Truman joined William Bucknell’s Brewhouse on Brick Lane. He soared through the ranks and took the business by the reins, eventually making it the biggest brewery in the world. It even got a mention in Charles Dickens’ ‘David Copperfield’. It fell on hard times however, and was shut down by then owners Scottish and Newcastle in 1989. Ten years later the trio of James Morgan, Jack Hibberd and MichaelGeorge Hemus approached them to buy the Truman’s name, and by January 2010 they had officially re-established the brand. The team started brewing a range of ales, some based on original Truman’s recipes, and brought the firm back to its roots this year, moving to the Eyrie in Stour Road, Hackney Wick, where it is now the largest brewery in East London. The move was marked with a family-friendly launch party on 14

The new owners aim to run the business in a way that is true to its original values. The brewery currently employs a team of 14 and this number

The brewery had to be in East London, and Hackney Wick was one of the last undiscovered bastions of old London is expected to double in the coming months. They are also actively looking for apprentices to learn the ropes in the brewery. So why Hackney Wick? James said: “The brewery had to be in East London, and Hackney Wick was one of the last undiscovered bastions of old London.” A project on this scale does not come without its problems. He added: “It was difficult to find a site,

we had issues with funding and then we struggled with the build. At times I asked myself why was I doing this.” James previously ran his own beer importing business. Although the team have grand plans for Truman’s, the quality of beer will remain the most important aspect, with the size of the business coming second. They currently produce two

beers: a Runner which is a dark bitter brewed with three types of hops and a golden ale, Swallow & Swift. They also make a number of flavoursome, seasonal beers and a bottled stout, London Keeper, perfect for Christmas.

News in brief Remember to register to vote

From main: Swimmer Mark Foster; Diver Nick Robinson-Baker; the SwimBritain team at London Fields Lido

Just keep swimming A

HOST of famous faces joined residents for the final weekend of this year’s British Gas SwimBritain. The event was held in London Fields Lido on 29 September and attended by six-time world champion Mark Foster; Olympic diver Nick Robinson-Baker; Olympic bronze medallist Cassie Patten; and Paralympic champion Jessica-Jane Applegate who all took to the water alongside nearly 500 local swimmers.

Swimming is refreshing, relaxing and liberating. It’s a great escape from the stresses of work

SwimBritain aims to encourage 500,000 more people to swim regularly by 2015 and so far has seen big-names like Olympic double gold medallist Rebecca Adlington, four-time Paralympic gold medallist Ellie Simmonds, and Channel swimmer David Walliams support

the get fit initiative. Mark Foster, whose five-year record in the 50 metre freestyle was only just broken this summer, said: “Many people spend long hours at work sitting down so it’s really important that they try and get regular exercise. It is difficult for many people to get motivated,

so SwimBritain will give them a goal and offer support along the way. “As well as the health and fitness benefits, swimming is refreshing, relaxing and liberating. It’s a great escape from the stresses of work and everyday life.” SwimBritain entrants are challenged to form a four person relay team and swim 4,000 metres. There is also a shorter 2,000 metre challenge for families with children. For more info, visit: www.swimbritain.co.uk

Woodberry Down residents urged to share their stories for community project WOODBERRY Down residents are being invited to share their stories as part of a project to explore the history of the estate since it was built in the 1950s. Woodberry Down Community Organisation (WDCO) was granted £33,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to research the project. The

funding will go towards producing an exhibition and a book, which will be distributed to every household on the estate. There will also be training and volunteering opportunities for residents and students at Skinners’ Academy. The estate in north Hackney is the site of one

of the largest regeneration schemes in the UK. ‘Woodberry Down, the

People’s Story’ is set to take one year to research, beginning this month.

The WDCO are looking to get the full participation of residents and will need photos, stories and memories for the project. WDCO chair, Geoff Bell, said: “I think the HLF recognised that this is a very important time for the people of Woodberry Down, who are facing both great changes and

great opportunities, but who also have a great story to tell about our past. This funding will allow us to do justice to that story.” The scheme is supported by the Council, Genesis Housing Association, Berkeley Homes and Manor House Development Trust.

Cafe for your convenience FORMER toilet in Clapton is set to become home to a comfort food cafe run almost entirely by older ladies. The building in Brooksby’s Walk is currently being converted into the new base for NANA cafe. The project was started last year by Katie Harris with the aim of utilising the skills of older women, many of whom have lived in the area for a long time. The cafe was initially based in the Elderfield pub, Clapton, followed by a short stint in De Beauvoir. But now, the nanas will get somewhere permanent to set up base. Katie said: “It had to be in Clapton because it has a

A

unique sense of community. I’ve lived here for five years and I wanted to create a space where people can come together. This location is ideal. “It’s also important for us to offer food for all at a reasonable price, and somewhere you can get comfort food, like dippy eggs and soldiers.” The Clapton Improvement Society partly paid for the refurbishment, with the rest coming from a Kickstarter internet fundraising drive which secured over £15,000 to pay for the public lavatories – now known as The Convenience – to be gutted and retiled, with solar panels installed on the roof. Upstairs will have a covered outdoor terrace

I missed being part of an intelligent team and I am valued, useful, and involved once again

Builders gut out the inside of the soon-to-be Convenience Cafe

with decking, and downstairs’ original 1970s hand dryers will remain along with glass tiles. The female loos will become

unisex, while the men’s urinals remain a feature of the building, which will operate as a cafe by day and bar/canteen at night.

Ladies from the UK, Italy, Nigeria, Jamaica and Barbados have signed up to become ‘nanas’ and help out in the cafe. For them, it means not being stuck at home and a chance to give something back to the community. Ruth Lambourne, a former primary school teacher and yoga enthusiast, said: “I moved to Hackney 35 years ago, originally from Birmingham. We bought an un-modernised house with no bathroom and an outdoor toilet. Hackney has changed since then. You can turn your back on those changes, or be part of it. “Clapton is a friendly, open and sharing community. I missed being part of an intelligent team, but now I am valued, useful,

and involved once again.” Florence Osaigbovo, originally from Nigeria, was a nurse at Homerton hospital, and insists that staying indoors will make a person ill. She said: “It’s a marvellous project. There’s so much loneliness out there, once people have retired they’re expected to stay in all day. We’re old, but not mentally. Being locked up makes people depressed. Older people are knowledgeable, we should be helping one another.”

Becoming empowered through learning Resident Lynne Hannigan set up Empowering Learning in Hackney, which specialises in the training and placement of trained overseas teachers in the UK

EFORE Lynne Hannigan became director of Empowering Learning, she taught in some of the most challenging schools in the UK, including in Greater Manchester and Belfast during ‘the troubles’. She went on to accumulate 28 years experience working with ethnic community groups, delivering GCSE courses in Urdu, Panjabi, Gujarati, Hindi, Arabic and more, as Head of the English as an Additional Language service for Barking and Dagenham Council. This background helped make Lynne the person she is today: someone who has, for the past 10 years, been running an agency that specialises in the recruitment and training of overseas teachers. She founded Empowering Learning in 2003 in order to help people who

B

qualified as teachers abroad, but found they had to take less qualified jobs when they moved to the UK. Lynne, who is a longterm resident of Hackney, where Empowering Learning is based, developed a 15-week professional development programme. It focuses on English teaching requirements, including the national curriculum, child protection, lesson planning and behaviour management. Participants then complete an 18-day internship in a school, which can lead to a paid job as a teaching assistant, learning mentor or teacher. This paves the way for them to gain assessmentonly Qualified Teacher Status, the key to full time employment. Lynne said: “People get misinformed that they need to complete a £9,000 PGCE to start teaching in

The teachers are on a high at the end of the course. The more you give, the more you get back this country. Our course costs just £540 and all they have to do is transfer their skills.” The course is not just cheaper than a PGCE, but also more accessible as teachers can train while holding down a full-time

job. The course may be relatively short, but the aftercare never ends. “You can’t shake us off,” laughs Lynne. Adding: “We always stay in touch with clients. We don’t want people doing supply teaching, we want it to be a

lifelong process for them.” The big reward for Lynne is seeing people succeed that would otherwise find it difficult. She says: “The teachers are on a high at the end of the course. The more you give, the more you get back.” Graduates of the training programme are likely to be more and more in demand. According to recent reports, there may be a teacher shortage in the coming years, especially in maths and science. A study by Professor John Howson at Oxford Brooks University found 30 per cent of maths PGCE places starting in September were unfilled – a gap of about 700 teachers. Following a recent spate of publicity, with articles in the Guardian, NUT magazine and the Voice, Lynne’s organisation is getting

more and more enquiries from teachers and schools. As a result, she plans to expand the business and recruit more staff. In line with this growth, a new virtual office has also been opened in Liverpool. Originally from Manchester, Lynne says she enjoys the sense of community in East London that isn’t so prevalent in other areas. As well as preparing overseas teachers for a working life in the UK, Lynne encourages children in years five and six to take GCSEs in their first language after school. Their parents are also supported to study with them, which promotes more family time and can boost the adults’ employment prospects. Lynne said: “Don’t hide your light under a bushel. Everyone needs a push, not just people from other countries.”

THE GREEN GENIE

All your green questions answered Q: I recently put a bag of old clothes in a recycling bank on the street. What is going to happen to them? A: Over 1million tonnes of textiles are sent to landfill or incinerated every year in the UK, so it’s great that you’ve used a textile bank instead of throwing your clothes away. Textile banks in Hackney are managed by two charities: TRAID and Islamic Relief. Clothes, shoes and textiles are sorted by condition, quality and style. Items in decent condition are sold in charity shops to raise money for good causes. There is a TRAID shop on Kingsland Road. The nearest Islamic Relief shops are in Whitechapel and Walthamstow. Materials which cannot be reused or sold are shredded and reprocessed into new items like blankets and cloths. To find out more about what happens to the clothes you donate and the good causes supported by the Council’s textile recycling partners, visit: www.traid.org.uk and www.islamic-relief.org.uk.

Gardener Joe Swift cuts the ribbon on the pallet shed; golden turnips; giant cabbage; vegetables laid out to be judged; Freya’s squash wins the best carved vegetable award

Gardeners’ community S UPPORTERS of Cordwainers Community Garden in Mare Street held their first ever country fair, with over 100 entrants, and prizes presented by celebrity gardener Joe Swift. The garden was created in 2011 by a group of green-fingered neighbours on a disused piece of land that belonged to the London College of Fashion. It is now home to 16 allotments, a pond, beehive and dye bed, which uses plants to create natural colouring for fabrics. The event on 14

September featured performances from local musicians, family craft activities, vegetable decorating, face painting, delicious homemade cakes, and a raffle with prizes donated by Hackney businesses.

piece of grass, adding it should be an ‘inspiration to others’ who want to create community spaces out of disused land in London. People were invited to enter

competitions for the best vegetables, cakes and preserves, with golden turnips presented to the winners. Cordwainers Community Garden is a member of Sustainable Hackney, Capital Growth, the Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood scheme and the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens.

Inspiring new film encourages children and young people to get back to nature AN inspiring new film that asks if children have turned their back on nature and are spending too much time indoors is set to be released on 25 October. ‘Project Wild Thing’ by documentary filmmaker David Bond was partly shot at Hackney City Farm.

www.hackney.gov.uk

It investigates a correlation between children spending less time outdoors and a decline in their wellbeing. David is a father of two who says of his own kids: “I don’t think they’d know a robin if it flew into their head.” He calculated that his own children only spent

four per cent of their daily routine outside.

So in the film project, he sets himself the task of

becoming a ‘marketing director of nature’ and allows two months for the development and launch of a campaign to get youngsters outside. As part of the project, he bribed his daughter, Ivy, to kiss a frog, visited schools and tried guerrilla advertising.

An ambitious campaign will be launched alongside the release of the film, ‘Project Wild Thing: Reconnecting Kids and Nature’, which aims to get more children outdoors to enjoy nature. For more info, visit: projectwildthing.com and click on the link to sign up.

HIS years’ annual Clean Up Clapton Day took place on 3 October at BSix College. It featured stalls providing information on ecology, recycling and cleaning. Hackney’s Big Green Map was also on display. It charts the local organisations, projects and

resources which help to make the borough more sustainable. The pavements around the college got a thorough steam clean, thanks to the Council, and students were asked to volunteer to help clean up Clapton Pond on 6 November. Pupils from Harrington Hill Primary School,

students and pupils from both schools. He said: “The rain just about held off, enabling Clean Up Clapton Day to go ahead successfully. At the end of the day, the area is much cleaner than it used to be – and we will continue running this event to help it stay that way.”

News in brief New discoveries at New River THE New River may no longer provide drinking water for London, but it is still home to hundreds of animals and plants, as youngsters discovered at its 400th birthday party. The celebrations in Clissold Park on 29 September marked 400 years since the New River was opened to bring fresh water into London. Children explored the wildlife in a new dipping pond – created earlier this year in Clissold Park, which the river flows through – uncovering pond snails, water boatmen, mayfly nymphs, a freshwater hoglouse, pond skaters and a newt. Visitors to a stall hosted by Thames21 assessed the water quality and found it to be an excellent habitat for wildlife with good pH and nitrate levels. Plus there was a silent disco, and Victorian fete activities run by Clissold Park User Group. Visitors also created a mosaic to celebrate the river’s anniversary.

TO celebrate 10 years of Gay Bingo, tranny superstars Jonny Woo, Ma Butcher and John Sizzle are kicking and screaming their way to the Hackney Empire for one night only. The cross-dressing, number-calling, card-daubing carnage of Gay Bingo has gone from a backstreet bar in Brixton, to the T Bar in Shoreditch, to Glastonbury, the ICA, Sydney Mardi Gras and now

the Hackney Empire – for its final ever incarnation. On the night there will be appearances from special guests, fantastic prizes and slick dance routines. Expect bearded trannies in body shapers and pig noses, the LGBT community out in full force, fruity straights, celeb fans, and perhaps a bit of spontaneous nudity – artistic, naturally – for old time’s sake.

Win tickets to watch Arcola’s ‘Macbeth of Fire and Ice’ A FAST paced, dynamic interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy ‘Macbeth’ gets a radical reinterpretation at the Arcola Theatre. ‘Macbeth of Fire and Ice’ is an adaption by an Icelandic creative team strongly influenced by Norse mythology. Director Jon Gun Thor brings the brutality of the Vikings, the persuasive powers of the Valkyries and spewing volcanic eruptions to the stage, while the production still leaves sympathies with Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The performance is accompanied by an exhibition by award winning photographer Ragnar Th Sigurdsson, showing breath-taking images of Iceland.

REVIEW George the Dog John the Artist Ongoing exhibition, Howard Griffin Gallery, 189-190 Shoreditch High Street, E1 6HU JUST a few months ago John Dolan was sitting on Shoreditch High Street, accompanied by his six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, George. He was well known in the area as a street artist and, having previously been homeless, had forged a living out of drawing pictures for passers by. Before he started drawing, John was in and out of jail for petty crime. But now John and George are welcoming people to their first ever solo exhibition, ‘George the Dog John the Artist’, on Shoreditch High Street. There are around 35 prints dotted around the gallery, with some fetching up to £15,000.

In his debut exhibition, John collaborates with over 40 international street artists and graffiti artists, including Thierry Noir, Pablo Delgado, Stik, ROA and Zomby. Richard Howard-Griffin, principle of the Howard Griffin Gallery, was excited to be showcasing John’s work. He said: “I love the discrepancies in the artist’s work which make it all the more charming. Things have really turned around for John.”

The Lee Valley Athletics Centre is hosting the sports cup

Hackney pupils to compete in the Lee Valley athletics cup STUDENTS from The Urswick and Stoke Newington schools will take on young people from across London and the Home Counties in the Lee Valley Cup athletics competition. Teams from both Hackney schools will take part in qualifying heats this month, culminating with a final on 23 October. Held at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, in Edmonton, the Year 10 and 11 pupils will compete in a range of sports including sprints, hurdles, relay races, high jump, long jump and shot put for the chance to win the coveted trophy. Lee Valley Athletics Centre manager, Mick Bond, said: “Following the Olympic Games last year, it’s good to see this continued interest in athletics. Competing in events like the Lee Valley Cup is often the first step to joining a club and long-term participation in the sport.” Lee Valley Athletics Centre is the training venue for many of the UK’s top athletes, including double Olympic medallists, Christine Ohuruogu, and Paralympic bronze medallist Rob Womack.

Millfields Community School youngsters enjoy some ferret racing at Countryside Live, which took place on Leyton Marsh last month

Getting back to nature CHOOLS from Hackney experienced all the wonder of the countryside at an event just a stone’s throw away in Leyton Marsh. On 25 and 26 September, some 3,000 schoolchildren had the opportunity to learn about all aspects of countryside life including rearing animals for food, traditional crafts, trades and land management. Activities such as falconry, sheep shearing, ferret racing and sheepdog shows were also enjoyed by visitors to the Countryside Live event. Karen Wheeler, youth and

A NEW art school that offers an alternative approach to education and community involvement launched on 3 October. Open School East (OSE) is based in the Rose Lipman building, a former library and community centre on De Beauvoir Estate. The project was commissioned by the Barbican and

Create London, as a non-fee paying art school providing a year-long study programme for 13 ‘associates’, aged 24 to 45 (pictured). The first intake of students were selected following an application process earlier this year. They will be working in the fields of art, design, dance, publishing and

community engagement. The 13 associates will receive free tuition from international writers, curators and theorists. In lieu of paying fees, they will run community activities in and around the building. Associates will also collaborate with residents and artists to turn the Rose Lipman building into a site for

‘social, intellectual and practical exchanges’. The school is supported by Legacy Trust UK, Hackney Council, and Arts Council England for the first year, but the aim is for it to become a longer term project. For more info, e-mail: info@openschooleast. org; or visit: www. openschooleast.org

Those taking part will enjoy a packed afternoon of debates with invited guests, workshops and lively discussions, as well as free goodie bags, live music and refreshments. The event is organised by the Hackney Youth

Parliament, with help from the Council’s youth service. Cllr Rita Krishna, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services and Education, said: “The Youth Conference gives young people the chance to speak out about some really challenging and interesting subjects; I’m always impressed by the well

considered, inspired debates that take place. “As well as giving them an opportunity to practise their public speaking skills, it should be a lot of fun – with plenty of entertainment throughout the day, so I hope lots of young people will come down.” Places are limited, so booking is essential.

MARKS & Spencer is giving young people in Hackney the chance to participate in its youth employability scheme, which provides on-the-job training and mentoring. M&S has joined forces with charity The Prince’s Trust to develop the ‘Make Your Mark’ programme aimed at 16 to 24-year-olds. The aim is to bridge the gap that stops unemployed young people from finding work. Jude Nayar, store manager at Hackney M&S, said: “There are hundreds of thousands of young people across the UK struggling to find work and we’re proud to be helping to support some of those through this programme.” The scheme provides induction and training to hone skills, develop confidence, and prepare young people for future job searches. After completing the placement, there is a chance for the individual to go straight into a vacancy. If there are no vacancies, a six month post-programme support plan will be offered by the Prince’s Trust. For more info, visit www.princes-trust.org.uk/ makeyourmark

Local GPs to run out-of-hours service for City and Hackney

Stub out cigs now for good MOKERS in Hackney have been urged to take the ‘Stoptober’ challenge and stub out cigarettes for good. It is part of a nationwide campaign to encourage people to give up smoking for 28 days. Research has shown those who manage to do so are five times more likely not to start again. Clinics are being held across Hackney throughout Stoptober to support anyone who wants help to quit. This includes one at HBV Enterprise Centre, in Dalston Lane, which is open 10.30am to 1.30pm, Monday to Friday. Bosede Kumuyi, from Stoke Newington, attended

Too many people in Hackney are dying from smoking related illnesses the clinic. She said: “I’ve been smoking on and off for about 20 years. I’m determined to stop. Not only is it unhealthy, it’s too expensive.” A quarter of over 18s in Hackney smoke and it remains the nation’s biggest killer. An average of 308 people die prematurely from smoking related illnesses in Hackney each year, and an estimated 2,000 people are admitted to hospital with health issues connected to smoking. The habit is also prevalent

among Hackney’s young people with 28 per cent of 18 to 19-year-olds smoking. Alongside health benefits, stopping smoking saves around £2,000 per year. The Council is working with Shoreditch Trust to run stop smoking clinics in the borough. In the past three years over 4,000 people have used the service with over 55 per cent of them managing to quit. Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health, said: “Too many people in Hackney are

dying from smoking related illnesses and the number of young people smoking is also a concern. With the help of its partners the Council is determined to change this by raising awareness of the dangers of smoking and the benefits of quitting. “The Stoptober challenge may be tough at first, but you won’t be alone. With the right support people can get on the road to a longer and healthier life.”

LOCAL doctors will deliver the out-of-hours service across Hackney and the City. The contract was awarded to a group of GPs who set up City and Hackney Urgent Healthcare Social Enterprise (CHUHSE). As a not-for-profit organisation, it has no shareholders and any cash surpluses will be reinvested in services. The NHS City and Hackney Commissioning Group (CCG) received two bids for the contract which is worth more than £6.4million over four years. An independent, expert evaluation panel assessed the bids. CHUHSE scored highly, impressing with its detailed submission and clinical model. Dr Victoria Holt, CHUHSE Medical Director, said: “We are enormously excited to have been awarded this contract. We have received support from almost all local practices, and GPs from a wide range of practices have already signed up to work out of hours shifts for us. By harnessing this local experience and knowledge, we intend to provide a high quality and accessible service.” For more info, visit: www.cityandhackneyccg.nhs.uk

Let’s talk about mental health WORLD Mental Health Day on 10 October is an annual event that aims to get people talking openly about mental illnesses. This year, health care workers in Hackney will focus on supporting older people and identifying mental health issues at an early stage. The aim is to tackle a common misconception that mental health problems are a normal part of ageing. East London NHS Foundation Trust staff will run stalls at the entrance of Homerton hospital and in the reception of City and Hackney Centre for Mental Health, in Homerton Row, with information for residents who feel depressed, anxious, struggle with phobias, anger management, and other psychological issues. Residents can talk to their GPs and ask for a referral to a service that can help. They can also call the Talking Therapies team on: 020 7683 4278; or visit: www. cityandhackneytalkingtherapy.nhs.uk

‘At risk’ residents are being urged to book their free seasonal flu vaccines FLU season has arrived and those most at risk from the virus are urged to take advantage of free immunisations from their local GP or pharmacy. People are more likely to catch flu between October and February and the best prevention is vaccination. This year, for the first time, all two and three-year-olds

will be offered the vaccine. Flu spreads very quickly and, because it is caused by viruses and not bacteria, antibiotics do not work. Dr Sohail Bhatti, the Council’s interim director of public health, said: “Anyone not sure if they should have the vaccine should check with their GP or local pharmacist.

“This is a virus which can put people in hospital

or even kill, so it really is better to be safe rather

than sorry.” Parents with children aged two to three will be contacted by their GP in the coming weeks. Children will receive a nasal spray vaccine. Those eligible for the free seasonal flu vaccine are: over 65s; two and three-years-olds; pregnant women; adults and

children aged over six months who are living with long term health conditions; everyone living in a residential or nursing home; everyone who cares for an older or disabled person; and frontline health and social care workers. For more info, visit: www.nhs.uk/flu

Opening the flood gates By Sally England

O mark the 400th anniversary of the opening of the New River, here is part two of our story about the epic struggle it took to complete. By 1610, Hugh Myddleton had built 10 miles of the New River at a cost of £3,000 when work came to a halt due to lack of funds, and his opponents seized on this as a chance to attempt to halt the project. The House of Commons saw ‘much ado’ over the new waterway ‘cutting… through the Grounds of many Men, who for their particularly interests do strongly oppose themselves to it, and are like (as ‘tis said) to overthrow it’. A Parliamentary committee was appointed to inspect the work, but MPs went on their summer

T

break before a decision was made. Myddleton wrote to James I asking for assistance in completing the project. The King had the power to dissolve Parliament as and when he wished, and did this in February 1611 over a variety of troublesome matters. He then agreed to provide Myddleton with half the funds required to complete the project in return for half the profits. By the time Parliament was recalled in 1614, the New River had been up and running for several months, measuring just over 38 miles long and costing £18,525. An opening ceremony took place at the New River Head in Islington on 29 September, 1613. A procession circled the then-dry Round Pond and a speech was made: ‘At which words the flood-gates flew open, the streame ran gallantly into the cisterne,

5

The flood-gates flew open, the streame ran gallantly into the cisterne drummes and trumpets sounding in triumphal manner.’ London’s supply of fresh water had arrived at last, and Myddleton was proclaimed Lord Mayor of London on the 6 same day. By 1660, the New River Company, formed in 1619, was forced to supplement their supply with water drawn from the Lea River, with the amount taken set at a maximum of 22.5 million gallons per day in 1855. East and West reservoirs, in Stoke Newington, were

built in the 1830s to act as a storage and water purification facility. A pumping station was also built in Green Lanes in 1855, designed to resemble a Scottish castle so as not to offend residents. Further work was undertaken over many years to shorten the New River, with embankments and tunnels used to straighten some of the long loops and reduce the waterway’s length to less than 30 miles. Under the Metropolis Water Act of 1902, the

nine private London water companies, including the New River Company, were brought together to form the Metropolitan Water Board (MWB) and the New River was purchased for £6,534,000. It passed to Thames Water when it succeeded the MWB in 1974. The New River still contributes significantly to London’s water supply, but since 1946 has ended at the Stoke Newington reservoirs, where it now feeds into the Thames Water Ring Main. Most of the southern end of the river was covered over, or filled in when it became redundant. The pond outside Clissold House is a remnant of the S-shaped loop that once swung around Hackney. The sections running alongside Church Street and Aden Terrace were also filled in during the 1950s, the latter is now

a thriving allotment site. Today the reservoirs are a valuable haven for wildlife, with West Reservoir Centre providing swimming, sailing and kayaking activities, and the pumping station has been transformed into the Castle Climbing Centre. The New River Path makes it possible to follow sections of the waterway on foot, taking in fascinating architectural and engineering features along the way.

Hackney’s wards in alphabetical order

The Mayor and Councillors Councillors are elected by Hackney residents and serve for four years. The last borough elections were in May 2010. Councillors have a range of responsibilities, including helping to oversee the Council and its services. They hold advice surgeries where residents can meet their local representative and ask them to

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.

take up issues that may be of concern. Generally they can help with Council related matters, but if the issue is the responsibility of another person or organisation, councillors can often point people in the right direction and tell residents who they need to see. Hackney has 57 councillors representing areas called wards – see map opposite.

Have your say on parking controls in South Hackney

"IFBMUIZFBUJOHQSPHSBNNF GSPN4IPSFEJUDI5SVTU www.shoreditchtrust.org.uk

THIS is the latest recipe from Shoreditch Trust’s Food Programme, which works with members of the community to encourage affordable healthy eating, cooking skills and food knowledge. Beetroot is a great source of B vitamins and iron which are important for energy. It also contains soluble fibre, which helps your body lower cholesterol. Jacinda State, Healthy Eating Worker for Shoreditch Trust, said: “Beetroot is at its best at this time of year and we’ve been making the most of it in our recent cook and eat sessions. Roasting the beetroot brings out the sweetness and helps to soften it as well as making it easier to digest. Serve as a starter.�

THE Council wants to hear from residents in South Hackney about the current parking restrictions in the area. Some controlled parking zones were widened to include more streets, following a public consultation last October and November. Since their introduction in May however, residents who live outside the new extended zones have asked for

parking restrictions to be introduced in their roads. The Council has therefore decided to re-consult residents and business owners across a wider area, including all roads around Victoria Park, as well as the Ladders. It is hoped this will give everyone an opportunity to have their say.

Recent surveys have shown that the majority of parking restriction free streets within these areas have experienced parking problems. The introduction of parking restrictions in one road can have a severe impact on the availability of parking in nearby roads. The consultation closes on 18 October. To have your say, and view the proposed designs of the controlled parking zones, visit: www. hackney.gov.uk/parkinghys. Alternatively contact Parking Services on: 020 8356 8877 to request a postal copy of the survey.
