Editorial

Objection to shutting the magistrates’ court

T

HE MINISTRY of Justice can try put forward a case that the closure of another magistrates’ court is not just about selling off a huge building in a prime location, but we doubt any jury in the country would agree with them.

Savings to the public purse have to be made, but please do not try to argue that it is all about efficiency or streamlining services, as the closure of Camberwell Magistrates’ Court will do neither. Its closure, announced on Wednesday, comes despite overwhelming opposition during the consultation period in September, from amongst others judges, court staff, the police and three MPs. There are even fears that it will result in a rise in gang violence and lead to potential miscarriages of justice, as the youth court is moved to Bromley Magistrates’ Court and all other defendants have to make their way to Croydon. Most young defendants who are connected to gang crime are wary of travelling into different postcodes, never mind different boroughs. The fear is they will get their friends to accompany them to court, creating extra work for police fearing turf warfare. And in Croydon, which by the way has less space and fewer cells than Camberwell, they are so overstretched that cases are listed with over three months’ delay. More delays may lead the judiciary to rush through cases and so increase the chances of miscarriages of justice. In Southwark we have already seen in recent years the closure of Tower Bridge Magistrates’ Court and now Camberwell. And what is Tower Bridge Magistrates’ Court now? It is going to open as a boutique hotel and there is little doubt that a horde of developers will be vying to snap up the impressive ground space that Camberwell magistrates’ takes up. But will the new residents and visitors to either site be able to sleep safer in their beds at night?

Surely there is another site?

S

URELY THERE has to be a better site for a travellers’ park than on the land of the Wheelshunter Social Club?

Given the recent furore between Lewisham Council and Millwall, to now hit a small social club that is part of the area’s historic working class community that is fast disappearing is just insulting. We are talking about six pitches for the travellers’ community. Where is the logic in demolishing a community asset that serves on average 100 local people and includes a green space that children play on?

Mum launches crowdfunding bid to send her boys to top competition

By Christy Cooney

news@southwarknews.co.uk

A SINGLE mum of four is crowdfunding so she can send two of her sons to a top diving competition in Southampton.

Tanya Robinson is raising £500 to send Shane, ten, and Zack, eight, to first train with three world-level coaches at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre and then compete in the Gavin Brown Love to Dive

competition in March. Over the four-part course, which will include work in a gym, on trampolines, and from diving boards, the boys will work on six dives to perform at the competition, which would be their first regional or national event. Tanya, who is a full-time carer for her youngest son, said: “They’ve already decided that they want to be professional divers and to coach younger generations. They’ve planned

out their work experience years in advance! I’ve been writing round local companies to try and secure funding and sponsorship for them. I’d love for them to make it, and to have more opportunities than I had, to be honest.” The course takes place this week and the centre have agreed to take payment in weekly instalments of £50, but the full cost will be £300. The cost of the competition will include its entry fee, special t-shirts and jumpers that must be worn by competitors,

accommodation, travel, and insurance. British diving has enjoyed a resurgence in public interest since diver Tom Daley became the youngest competitor to reach a final at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Shane and Zack started diving eighteen months ago after getting hooked at a one-off taster session, and were spotted by a scout at a holiday camp a few months later. Asked where he hopes to be in ten years’ time, Shane said he wanted to

be diving in the Olympics, to which Zack added: “And winning gold medals!” Both must hope to perfect a somersault with a rip, a form of entry that involves hitting the water with an open hand to create an air pocket for your body to enter, minimising splash. At the time of writing Tanya’s fund had raised £35. You can contribute by going to www.gofundme.com/shane-zacksdiving-fund.

TUNNEL VISION Thames Water workers dig shaft under Peckham street after concrete is poured down drains

By Owen Sheppard

owen@southwarknews.co.uk

THAMES WATER has released this photo of a mine shaft workers dug beneath a Peckham street, where sewage pipes had been blocked by ten metres of concrete.

The News reported last week that a rogue builder had poured concrete down drains in Hanover Park.

The problems were first reported on February 6 by residents whose sewage was “backing up” in the blocks of flats beside Hanover Park. Thames Water confirmed the concrete had “set” and the sewage pipes were “85 per cent” blocked with the solid concrete. Local resident Jennifer Chelley previously said she believed the concrete had been “flushed” down a toilet.

Stuart White, a spokesperson for Thames Water, called the unknown culprits “selfish and irresponsible”, and said the works having to be carried out were “a complete waste of time and money”. Mr White added: "Normally blockages are caused by fat, oil and wet wipes building up in the sewer but unfortunately in this case it's concrete, so we can't jet it through.

“It's in there and it's set to the pipe, so we need to remove the pipe and replace it with a new one. "This is very frustrating, a complete waste of our time, and not the first time damage has been caused by people pouring concrete into our sewers. After fixing the problem, we will investigate and then reclaim the costs from whoever is responsible."

Magistrates’ Court to be closed down CAMBERWELL

Cases to be heard in Bromley and Croydon By Owen Sheppard

owen@southwarknews.co.uk

THE GOVERNMENT last week confirmed it will close Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court at the end of 2018.

A report signed off by the Lord Chief of Justice, Tory MP Elizabeth Truss, has said the effects will be: •That hearings for those defendants under the age of eighteen will be relocated to Bromley Magistrates’ Court •Hearings for defendants over the age of eighteen will be relocated to Croydon Magistrates’ Court Housing possession work, which was going to be moved to Camberwell after a decision to close Lambeth County Court, will instead happen at Southwark’s three local Crown Courts. The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) ran a consultation on proposals to shut Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court, and Hammersmith court, between September 15 and October 26 last year. More than 62 responses came from three local MPs, eleven judges, magistrates, court staff, and thirteen public sector bodies, including Southwark Council and the Met Police. One local magistrate who preferred not to be named told the News: “Camberwell has about three times more cells than Croydon, which is where cases will be moved to. “Camberwell’s court is also an extremely valuable building. It has two levels of underground car parking, and it’s in a prime location.” He said he believed the consultation “wasn’t really a consultation”, rather it “was already a done deal”. Dulwich and West Norwood MP

Helen Hayes wrote to Justice Minister, MP Oliver Heald, last year to say she was “concerned” the closure “will significantly reduce access to justice for my constituents”. “Attendance in court will be much more challenging,” she said, particularly for “vulnerable young people”. She pointed out that Croydon Magistrates’ Court is “already listing cases with three-month delays”. On the timing of the closure, the MoJ report said: “Our implementation plans are currently projecting that the building will cease to provide a public service between October and December 2018, but this is subject to change as our plans are further developed.” A statement signed by Paul Harris, transformation director from the MoJ, said: “We have carefully considered the impact on court users concerning travel to attend a hearing and we believe that access to justice will be maintained following these closures.” He added: “Staff, judiciary and partner agencies who work hard to administer and deliver justice will obviously be affected by these changes, including those in Crown Courts. I am committed to working closely with the judiciary on the implementation of these changes and am equally committed to supporting staff and ensuring that the transition to the new arrangements takes place in a fair and transparent manner.” The MoJ has said the money raised from selling the court would “be reinvested into the transformation of the HM Courts & Tribunals Service to modernise courts and tribunals”.

Hayes said she was “completely furious” over the closure. She said: “There was nothing in the consultation document to say what would happen to house re-possession cases that were due to be moved over to Camberwell. “The other thing I’ve been concerned about is how this will work? It’s about meant to be about the use of technology for us to not need to attend court. But they have not provided anything I’ve seen that’s remotely a credible plan to allow that. “The closure programme is running way, way ahead of the strategy they say is the reason for why this closure programme could work. “If you’re going to have video links you need secure places for people to be able to record them.

Millwall fans’ favourite social club, the Wheelshunters, could be knocked down as Lewisham Council looks for traveller site

EXCLUSIVE

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A POPULAR Millwall watering hole could be knocked down to make way for a permanent traveller site in Lewisham.

Lewisham Council has earmarked Wheelshunters Social Club land, in Hornshay Street, and a nearby multiuse games area as a potential site to build on after deciding at least six pitches would be needed for the travelling community over the next fifteen years. Land next to Pool Court, in Catford, has also been identified but only one site will be needed. Peter Baker, 81, has been running Wheelshunters, formerly known as New Cross Social Club, since 2012 and was previously on the committee at Brockley Social Club for 50 years. The great-grandfather said it would be a “sad day” if the club was knocked down and that it would be a shame to take away the playing area from children living nearby. “They [the club members] think that it’s disgusting to take away a place where people can go and socialise,” he said. “All the Millwall supporters say that it’s outrageous. “We’ve got 235 members who have put a lot of money into this place over the years and there are more than 100 people here on match days. “It’s so nice to come in on a Saturday and make all of the fans

warm and feed them and then see them come back afterwards and discuss the game. “And the children come in and can play ball out on the grass outside until the match starts.” The social club has a pool team and darts team and hosts weddings, birthdays, children’s parties and barbecues throughout the year. “If they said they were going to knock us down to build 200 flats that would make more sense to me but I don’t think there’s a need to take it away for a traveller site,” said Mr Baker, who met his wife of nearly 60 years, Rose, while playing football for Millwall Supporters’ Club. “We’ve got three or four traveller sites within a four-mile radius.” Mr Baker said he was still waiting to hear of the council’s decision and that the club could remain open for another six to twelve months. The council held a consultation from October 17 to November 30 to get feedback on the proposals from the public. A spokesperson for Lewisham Council said: “We had a good response to the consultation and thank all those who took the time to give us their views. These views will be taken into account before any decision is made. “We anticipate the outcome of the consultation will be reported to mayor and cabinet in the spring.” For more information, visit: www.lewisham.gov.uk/travelling community

Trump travel ban ‘cruel and discriminatory’

Southwark’s London Assembly Member says potentially affected residents ‘welcome here’ By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK’S LONDON Assembly member has described US President Donald Trump’s attempted travel ban as ‘cruel and discriminatory’, and said residents potentially affected were “welcome here”.

The controversial ban applies to seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. President Trump’s Executive Order, which has been temporarily halted

subject to further legal proceedings, stops any individual who was born in – and is travelling from – one of these countries from entering the United States. There are 3,006 people born in one of the seven countries living in Southwark, with over1,600 from Somalia and over 560 from Iran. People born in one of the banned countries and living in Southwark will not be directly affected unless they travel from their country of birth directly to the USA on a banned passport. However, many have friends and relatives who are affected and those who

travel often, such as business people, are facing difficulties. "It is vital that we, in the most diverse city in the world, make it absolutely clear that we condemn the recent travel restrictions implemented by Donald Trump,” said Florence Eshalomi, Lambeth and Southwark London Assembly member. “The travel ban is cruel and discriminatory. It panders to people's fear and prejudice, and can make people born in those countries feel targeted and discriminated against. “I want to send a clear message to those living in Southwark who were born in

one of the so-called ‘banned’ countries: you are welcome here. “The Government's response to it has been feeble, perhaps for fear of offending Donald Trump. “We need them to unequivocally condemn the travel ban, and take real action to ensure our capital is not going to be

adversely affected." A London Assembly motion, backed by Florence Eshalomi, welcomed the Mayor of London’s “immediate and unequivocal condemnation” of the travel ban. It called on Mayor Khan to make representations to the UK Government to ensure that any future trade agreement with the US will be a fair deal for London and the UK. It was passed by a vote of 13 to 1, with the Conservative assembly members abstaining.

‘The Clipper bulldozed within weeks’ FRESH PLANS to demolish Rotherhithe’s Clipper Pub and turn it into residential property could see work to knock the building down begin within weeks, writes Chiara Giordano...

Landlords Michael and Linda Norris with their daughter Carrie and grandson Luke

EXCLUSIVE

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

THE LANDLORDS of an underthreat Rotherhithe pub are celebrating after securing asset of community value status – but say the fight is far from over.

The China Hall, in Lower Road, faces closure after the freehold of the pub building was sold to developer Hamna Wakaf by owners Punch Tavern. Michael and Linda Norris, 68 and 56, could lose both their livelihood and their family home after being told their lease would not be renewed when it comes to an end on May 28. The couple, who have run the China Hall for almost 34 years, found out on Thursday (Feb 9) that their application to have the pub listed as an asset of community value (ACV) was successful. Having ACV status means that if the

freehold of a building comes up for sale, the organisation that obtained the status must be offered a chance to work up a bid to buy it, and if the owner of the property wants to change its use it has to go through the formal planning process. But, despite their newly-acquired ACV status, the landlords still fear they could be forced to move out of the area where they grew up. “The first we heard of it [the building being sold] was when someone came into the pub and said ‘I hear you’re leaving’,” said Linda. “Then the area manager for Punch turned up out of the blue one day and said he had been told to come here and wait for a phone call. When he got the phone call he said that we had been sold. I think they sold about eleven pubs at the same time. We never bought out; we were always loyal but where does it get you in the end?” “I think it’s disgusting the way Punch have treated us,” Michael added. “They didn’t even give us a chance to buy the

pub.” The couple said they recently received a letter from the building’s new owner offering them a ten-year lease for £75,000 a year – almost double what they pay now. They plan to continue as usual while negotiating the rent, but fear they may still have to find a new home when their lease expires. “We’ve both lived in Rotherhithe all our lives,” said Linda. “Michael’s mum still lives near here and all our friends are here. “My parents’ family goes back generations and we lived here at a time when no-one wanted to live here. “The cost to rent privately around here is ridiculous; if we had to privately rent we wouldn’t be able to stay in this area.” The landlords thanked Steve Silcock and Andy Large, of the southeast London branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), for their help in getting the pub listed as an asset of community value. The News contacted Punch Tavern for comment, but received no response.

HERNE HILL

Flood hit pub finally to reopen nearly five years after disastrous flooding By Kirsty Purnell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

IT’S OFFICIAL – the Half Moon Pub in Herne Hill will re-open on March 20.

The beloved pub, owned by Fuller’s, has been shut since August 2013, when a burst Thames water pipe flooded the area. The re-opening has suffered a series of setbacks, with the most recent being the

completion of a gas installation, but Fuller’s are confident that they’ll be able to swing open the doors on March 20. The refurbished pub will have twelve hotel bedrooms and a new kitchen in the Billiard Room, which was formerly used for live bands. Fuller’s have been busy consulting with local residents about future activities for the pub, including a celebration of International Dylan Thomas Day on May 14 – with the Half Moon being a favourite drinking haunt of the Welsh

poet. Managing Director for Fullers, Jonathan Swaine, said: “I had hoped that by this point I would be welcoming you all to the Half Moon in Herne Hill, but while work is progressing well, we are still a month away from opening.” “We are pinning everything on March 20 – as long as the gas installation goes smoothly. If anything changes, we will let you know. But all things being equal, we look forward to welcoming you on Monday, March 20.”

Lighthall Homes Ltd was last year refused permission to demolish the former Rotherhithe Street boozer and build a four-storey building with six flats and retail space in its place. But work to knock the two-storey pub down could begin as soon as March 1, according to documents submitted to the council by Lighthall. A planning consultant wrote to Southwark Council on behalf of the company on February 1, notifying them of the demolition plans and giving them 28 days to respond. No planning application with details of the proposed residential accommodation has yet been submitted. A number of letters of representation have been submitted to the council, with some members of the public coming out in favour of the demolition and others against it. “This is a welcome proposition,” wrote one person. “The former Clipper public house has become progressively run down since its closure, exacerbated by a prolonged occupation by squatters, and the ongoing delays in planning have created an unacceptable limbo for local residents. The demolition of this unsightly and unwanted building will be a step forward in the redevelopment of the site – providing much-needed accommodation.” “It has already been established that this building is not an asset of community value and it has been a

blight on the landscape for an unacceptably long period,” another wrote in favour. “It is evident that there is no appetite for anyone to take it on as a going concern, and therefore it clearly can't survive in its current form. I support demolition as a necessary precursor to inevitable development.” Writing to oppose the demolition, one person said: “I do not believe demolition should be allowed until any future planning application for an acceptable development is granted. “This is a substantial building and its demolition with the potential for lying as a vacant site would significantly impact on the street scene and the neighbouring properties.” “It is not clear why the building can't stand as it is until the developer has a plan to develop the site,” another letter of objection stated. “The building is a historic building on a part of Rotherhithe Street that is dominated by new builds. This has been going on for three years with developers submitting the same plans again and again in the hope the local community are not switched on. “This whole issue can only be resolved if the developer submits a demolition plan, alongside a viable planning application with a building scheme that is less than four storeys.” If the demolition goes ahead, work is expected to be carried out between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays, according to the demolition plan. Work to knock down the former pub is expected to be completed by April 1, according to the application submitted to the council by Lighthall Homes.

TfL reveals proposals for new Bakerloo Line stations

Old Kent Road option 2A

By Owen Sheppard

owen@southwarknews.co.uk

PROPOSED SITES for two new Bakerloo line tube stations were finally revealed by Transport for London last week, as it launched its consultation on plans to extend the line.

TfL is currently working to a timetable that could see the extension finished by 2029. The proposals include two stations in Old Kent Road, as well as in New Cross Gate and Lewisham town centre, and a capacity upgrade for Elephant and Castle station. The new plans say that two new tunnels would be built 20 metres below ground. There are four preferred options for the two Old Kent Road stations, referred to as 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B. • Old Kent Road option 1A is “near the junction of Mandela Way with Dunton Road”. • Option 1B is “near the junction of Old Kent Road with Dunton Road”. • Option 2A is “near the junction of Old Kent Road with St James's Road”. • Option 2B is “near the junction of Asylum Road with Old Kent Road”. One of three ventilation shafts would also be built either in the middle of the Bricklayers Arms junction, or at the south-east corner of Faraday Gardens, next to Portland Street in Walworth. The other two shafts would be built in Lewisham. A statement from TfL said the development would be “vital” to help London’s infrastructure as its population swells to an estimated ten million by 2030. “It would support growth in south east London through new housing, improved connectivity, increased transport network capacity and reduced journey times to key destinations including the West End and Lewisham town centre,” the statement said. Lambeth and Southwark’s London assembly member, Florence Eshalomi, said: “This is fantastic news for our community. We know that when we increase transport connectivity, we boost local economic growth. “This plan could see more jobs and more houses for local people. It also means much improved access to central London and all it has to offer.” London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “delighted”, and that the project had “huge potential for new jobs and 25,000 new homes in the area”.

Old Kent Road option 1A Old Kent Road option 1B

Councillor Mark Williams, Southwark’s cabinet member for regeneration and new homes at, said the extension would help with the council’s ambition to regenerate the Old Kent Road. He promised a new high street with new homes “including at least 35 per cent affordable homes”, new shops and cafes, workspaces, parks and open spaces, and safer networks for cyclists and pedestrians.

Plans for ‘Jenga tower’ submitted By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

PLANS FOR a ‘Jenga’-style skyscraper to be built in Blackfriars have been submitted to the council.

The 178.5-metre residential tower would be located on Stamford Street as part of a wider development if plans go ahead. Developer Black Pearl Ltd. and architects Wilkinson Eyre have submitted plans to build a mixed-use scheme of residential, hotel and commercial office space. It would include 227 market residential units, 64 affordable housing units, and 548 hotel rooms if approved. A new public square is also part of the plans. In a planning statement, the developers state that their aim is to “develop and provide a range of quality homes to include private, social and intermediate housing” and “as far as possible, affordable housing provision to be provided on the site itself”. They also plan to “introduce a live music venue to add to the borough’s cultural offering and support London’s live music industry”. Commenters on the Skyscraper City forum have already dubbed the proposed skyscraper the ‘Jenga Tower’ and the ‘Minecraft’ building due to its blocky appearance.

LEWISHAM’S MAYOR has resigned from his post at Surrey Canal Sports Foundation, leaving the future of the controversial New Bermondsey scheme more uncertain than ever.

Food and drink fest for Herne Hill News Page 15

Steve Bullock announced his resignation as a trustee on Friday – just over a week after Southwark Council leader Peter John also resigned from the sports foundation, as well as Tanni Grey-Thompson. His resignation came after Lewisham pledged to conduct an independent external inquiry into SCSF after it performed a dramatic U-turn on plans to compulsory purchase Millwall FC land. The U-turn followed allegations the charity inaccurately claimed to have secured £2million of Sport England funding. "As you know, I have always sought to make a clear distinction between my trusteeship of SCSF and my role as elected mayor of Lewisham,” the mayor said on Friday, February 10. “I was happy to take on my trusteeship because I believed and still continue to believe the Energize project can deliver enormous benefits to the people of the borough but given the amount of recent media reporting, and inaccurate comments I understand to be circulating on social media, it has become clear to me that my continued involvement with SCSF is not helping either the borough or the foundation. "It is also creating unnecessary confusion at a time when I need to concentrate my

efforts on the many challenges facing the borough today, not least the continuing impact of Government austerity programmes. “I have therefore decided that I should tender my resignation as a trustee with immediate effect." Details of what Lewisham’s inquiry will cover and its scope are expected to be decided at a full council meeting on February 22. It is not yet known who will head up or be involved in the inquiry, or when it will begin. Once the investigation is complete, the outcome will be reported to full council and made public.

Brasserie for Wibbley site? By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A FLOATING brasserie could soon be moored at the former spot of Rotherhithe’s beloved Wibbley Wobbley boat pub if plans are approved. An applicant named Charlie Ruler has submitted plans to Southwark Council to build a boat to serve as a brasserie. If given the green light, the boat would be moored in Greenland Dock at the berth of the former Wibbley Wobbley. The much-loved boat pub was towed away in December, and had closed a couple of years earlier. A planning application submitted to the council this month for ‘Rulers Brasserie’ stated: “The owner

proposes to change the vessel to one more fitting to the area and change the use from a public house to a brasserie operating at the same location.” The vessel would be built off-site and would be built by marine boat builders, at the instruction of a marine architect, according to the plans.

‘The readiest way of al others to the true spelling of English’ - seventeenth century school book finds a new home in library

Southwark News, February 16 2017

www.southwarknews.co.uk/news

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

The library, in Euston Road, recently received the only known copy of the early schoolbook entitled ‘The grounds of learning’ or, ‘The readiest way of al others, to the true spelling, true reading, and true writing of English’. The book was written by Richard Hodges, a school teacher who lived and worked in Southwark, and printed in 1650 by William Dugard, who was also a school teacher and a friend of renowned Paradise Lost author John Milton. Hodges wrote The Grounds of Learning primarily for children as early learners of literacy – but by today’s standards it would be considered uninspiring for a young audience. It covers the alphabet, punctuation, spelling and pronunciation, and includes a section on Biblical teachings. The market for children’s books, educational or otherwise, was still in its infancy in the 1650s and consisted mainly of dry primers (early textbooks), catechisms (religious books) and grammars. It was only in the second half of the century that awareness of child development grew and educational works became more creative, incorporating pictures and stories into their lessons. Maddy Smith, curator of printed heritage collections 1601-1900 at the British Library, said Hodges was a pioneer for the standardisation of the English language, particularly of spelling and pronunciation. “He was a schoolmaster but he also wrote a lot about the English language which in the seventeenth century wasn’t standardised as it is today,” she said.

“The first schoolbooks were in Latin and Greek grammar but as time went on English grew in importance so those functional English language books were quite pioneering for their time. “He also produced works for apprentices and tradesmen; he used to write books about simple arithmetic so he was also writing for the working class.” The team at the library had known this particular book existed, as they possess ten different books written by the author and it had been advertised in another publication. The book itself is small and was originally bound in cheap leather, probably calf or sheep, but since been recovered with utilitarian reverse leather to prolong its lifespan. “Most books of those sort of schoolbooks and cheap instructional works were bound with really cheap material, and sheep leather was much cheaper than calf,” said Maddy. “However, it wore very easily because the book was used a lot so the fact it was re-backed over time suggests it was used over generations. It had to be cheap because of the market it was produced for.” Inside, the endpapers of the book are splattered with the ink blots, doodles and signatures of the book’s earliest young

owners. These include someone named Hannah Barrow who appears to have been given the book as a Christmas present. She scrawled her name on as many blank pages as she could find, even writing directly to “all you that look within this book” on the front endpaper. “We like the fact that there was a female ownership of the book,” said Maddy. “It’s quite interesting because female education wasn’t widespread in the early seventeenth and eighteenth century. “It’s nice to see she was educated, whether or not she was educated at home or at a parish.” Not much is known about Hodges’ early life, though the British Library does know he lived in Southwark and his burial was registered at St Saviour’s parish. “We know he lived in Southwark and that he married in 1638 about 20 years before he died so possibly a second marriage but we only really know him by the works he published,” said Maddy. “His burial was registered in St Saviour’s parish and his gravestone said he was a schoolmaster for the parish.” The British Library is currently processing the book, but it is hoped it will be on display to the public in the future.

BOROUGH

By Kirsty Purnell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

AN ELEVEN-year-old girl raised £400 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children’s Charity after fighting for her life there as an infant.

Amecia Hylton, who was born with chronic lung disease, organised the Bad Hair Day Event at her school on February 10. Pupils and staff at the Cathedral School of St. Saviour and St. Mary Overie were called on to come to school with the craziest hair dos they could muster. “It’s warmed my heart to see everyone participating and raising money for Great Ormond Street,” said mum, Caroline. “It’s helped to open people’s eyes up in the school to what Great Ormond Street do, too.” The “usually quite shy” Amecia battled her nerves two weeks ago to stand up in assembly and promote the event to the 230-strong student body in her school. “The whole thing has really contributed toward her confidence growing,” said Caroline, who is also an ex-pupil of the school. At just fifteen-monthsold, Amecia was rushed to GOSH and connected to an ECMO machine, which acted as her lungs for ten days. The youngster has been fundraising for GOSH Children’s Charity for the past six years through the Race for Kids event and this year, plans to do her first Santa Dash event. “Winter’s usually a bad time of year for Amecia with coughs, colds and trips to hospital but fingers crossed we can do it this year,” said Caroline. Assistant Head and SENCO at the school, Mr Rojas, has taught Amecia since she came into the school in Year 1. “Amecia is a beautiful individual and it’s been a pleasure to see her blossom,” he said. “And Caroline has been a complete pillar of strength – for Amecia and for the school,” he said.

Hamlet supporters hope to galvanise support for stadium redevelopment plans at public meeting DULWICH

By Kirsty Purnell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

A PUBLIC meeting will be held at Dulwich Hamlet Football Club on February 20 to galvanize support for the stadium redevelopment campaign.

Meadow Residential, the developers

behind the plans, have lodged a planning appeal against Southwark Council after the local authority failed to return a decision on the application within the thirteen weeks required under planning law. The deadline for people to make their views known to the planning inspector is March 7.

Meadow’s initial plans, submitted to Southwark Council in April, were to pull down the current stadium and build 155 homes on the site and build a new stadium. Part of the stadium would be built on Green Dale Fields - protected land – which has led to local opposition to the plans. The proposals met further opposition when Meadow claimed that

meeting the council’s target of 35 per cent “affordable” homes was “unviable” for them. However, in January, Meadow announced that they would consider reviewing plans to meet the affordable housing target. Dulwich Hamlet Supporters Trust, the organisers of Monday’s meeting, report that their members overwhelmingly

back the redevelopment of the Champion Hill stadium. They state that the redevelopment of the site will allow the club to clear its debts and if plans are blocked, the future of the club will be put in “severe jeopardy.” Members of the public are invited to take part in the meeting, which will be held at 7pm in the football club bar.


Council to axe free phone line for repairs in bid to save £65k Southwark News, February 16 2017

Residents ‘were not consulted properly’ says Lib Dems EXCLUSIVE

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK COUNCIL is to axe its free telephone line for tenants to report their repair problems in a bid to save £65,000 a year.

Currently, council tenants wishing to report a repair can telephone a free 0800 number – but this is set to be phased out and replaced with an 0300 number. Unlike the free 0800 service, the cost to call an 0300 number, used by many public sector and not-for-profit organisations such as charities, is the same as calling a landline. Customers will pay the same amount to call the 03 number as a landline call to a 01 or 02 number and the price is the same for calls from mobiles. Calls to 0300 numbers are also included, at no additional cost, in most mobile phone plans. The move comes as part of the council’s budget proposals and should

save the public purse £65,000 a year. Opposition Liberal Democrat councillors have criticised the council for failing to sufficiently highlight the ending of the free service. They claim that tenants were only notified of the change the day before the decision was made, and that the detail was “tucked away” in an

council twice. “It also appeared in the indicative HRA [Housing Revenue Account] budget, and the resulting cabinet reports were approved in the public domain,” she said. “Using the 0800 number meant that tenants bore the cost indirectly via the housing revenue account. “The move to the 0300 number means that now tenants who don't need to use the repairs line will no longer be indirectly paying for the overall cost. “It is also worth noting that 0300 telephone numbers have been allocated to public sector bodies and non-profit organisations such as charities partly because such organisations are not permitted to profit from their use. “Furthermore, we have invested heavily in improving our online services and went live with our new website at the beginning of December. “Tenants and leaseholders can view their rent or service charge details online and request and monitor the status of repairs.”

A NEW playground was unveiled just in time for half term at the Glebe Estate in Camberwell on Monday February 13.

Kids, parents and residents were joined by local councillor Mark Williams at the unveiling event, which included refreshments, music and face painting. Southwark Council funded the £45,000 playground, after Glebe TRA Secretary Jo Glover made an application to them. Children picked their favourite design for the new playground from a range submitted to the council by local companies. The winning design was created by SMP HAGS, manufacturers and designers of playground equipment. Brunswick Park ward councillor Mark Williams said: “We were delighted to award funding to this project last year which was proposed by the local Tenants’ and Residents’ Association, and it was fantastic to open this great new playground for the children on the Glebe Estate. “I’d like to thank everyone who worked on this project, including the children who choose the equipment, for making it such a success.”

‘We’ll cut spending on politicians’ says leader

EXCLUSIVE

By Owen Sheppard

owen@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK’S OPPOSITION Liberal Democrat party has given a taste of its ‘alternative budget’, which includes measures such as reducing ‘spending on politicians’ and finding other sources of money – such as fines for drivers who leaves engines idling.

The ‘alternative budget’ was revealed to the News after the ruling Labour party unveiled its 2017-2018 budget proposals at a council meeting on January 30. Among the headlines was a government-imposed council tax increase that will be dedicated to funding social care services, called the ‘social care levy’. Southwark will also voluntarily increase council tax for the first time in seven years, with an increase of 1.99 per cent, bringing the total increase to 4.99 percent. Speaking to the News, the leader of Southwark Lib Dems, councillor Anood Al-Samerai, said her party would instead propose cuts to “spending on politicians rather than cutting front-line officers and services”. The Lib Dems’ proposals include: • Reducing the special responsibilities allowances councillors receive by 4.99 per cent (to match the council tax increase) • Getting rid of four deputy cabinet member positions introduced by Labour

• Getting rid of two cabinet member positions, bringing the number down to eight, after Labour raised the number of positions to ten • Scrapping payments for cabinet members of between £2,641 and £12,791 if they lose their job Cllr Al-Samerai added that she believed it was “right” for the Labour party to cap the council tax increase at 1.99 per cent, as a greater increase would require the public’s consent via a local referendum. However the Lib Dem leader told the News: “We would have made the increase in smaller amounts over several years, rather than all at once. Putting it up in one big go shows a lack of long-term planning.” Besides tax increases, the most highprofile issue on Southwark Council’s plate is how it will approach funding of adult and children’s social care. Last year Southwark overspent on its care budget by £9.5m, which the Lib Dems have slammed as “financial mismanagement”. As Labour talked through its budget on January 30, it revealed plans to move responsibility for care services onto the NHS and third-sector organisations. Councillor Richard Livingstone, cabinet member for adult and financial inclusion, said £900,000 could be saved by reducing its spend on care equipment such as wheelchairs and stair lifts from 60 per cent to 20 per cent. Another £900,000 would be saved by “rationalising” its transport services for care-service recipients, and residents’ personal budgets would be reduced by

Lib Dem leader Anood Al-Samerai

ten per cent per head. Cllr Al-Samerai questioned Cllr Livingstone at last month’s meeting on whether the council could guarantee that local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group would take over provision of residents’ care equipment. Cllr Livingstone admitted that local NHS providers “had not been consulted” on this plan. But his rebuke was that the NHS had a “statutory duty” to pay for equipment, rather than the council. The Lib Dems also voiced concern that residents had also not been consulted on this change of policy. Cllr Al-Samerai added: “Southwark are planning to cut respite care for families, which was not mentioned at the meeting [on January 30]. “Southwark is cutting services for those who are by definition the most vulnerable people in our community”. Savings of £350,000 made from the changes to respite care provision, and £537,000 will be saved from Southwark’s budget for day centre services. Cllr Al-Samerai also criticised plans to reduce staff in the council’s Planning

Department to save £75,000. Planning officers are tasked with monitoring developers and ensuring planning permission on sensitive matters like social housing is adhered to. The Lib Dems have proposed to reform the way developers are charged for making planning applications, saying “bigger developers should be charged a lot more”, in light of how profitable it is to build housing developments in London. As an alternative policy on planning administration, Cllr Al-Samerai added that planning officers should be required to publish all discussions they have with developers, and that officers’ priorities should be to “spend far more time consulting with residents who will be affected”. The Liberal Democrats have yet to reveal their full budget plan, but they are due to receive feedback from the council’s director of finance, who will sign it off once he is satisfied their budget is balanced and credible. A full-council meeting will take place on February 22, where the Labour party’s budget will be voted on after the

Liberal Democrats have had a chance to put forward amendments. Responding to Cllr Al-Samerai’s criticisms, Cllr Fiona Colley, Southwark’s cabinet member for finance, said: “Southwark Labour made a commitment to keep Council Tax low and that’s exactly what we have done, with rates in Southwark remaining amongst the lowest in London. But like most councils up and down the land, Southwark is experiencing extraordinary pressures on adult care services this year and we have been forced into a position where we simply cannot meet the needs of vulnerable older and disabled people without raising additional funds through council tax, though even that won’t be enough to plug the funding gap in social care and prevent the need for further cutbacks. “Councils across the country are facing significant funding deficits in social care budget and politicians of all parties have slammed the government for failing to get a grip on this national funding crisis. The cross-party LGA has warned that the continued underfunding of social care is making it impossible for local authorities to provide even a statutory minimum standard of care. In Southwark we are working hard to ensure that these pressures are carefully managed whilst still maintaining good quality services.”

Ministry of Fitness - club launches its own gym ELEPHANT AND CASTLE

By Kirsty Purnell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

MINISTRY OF Sound has launched its first ever gym, Ministry Does Fitness (MDF), which promises to “stick two fingers up” at pretentious gym culture.

Housed in the club’s “booze vault” [storeroom], punters can expect hardcore workouts to go hand in hand with a fully licensed bar, with the gym’s ethos being to “be good to be bad.” Ministry’s state of the art sound system will provide the musical backdrop, with playlists being specially curated and synced to match the rhythms of the class

of the day. “The gym pokes fun at the idea of there being perfection involved in fitness and beauty,” said a spokesperson for MDF, which has posters on the walls actively discouraging trout pout gym selfies. “If you like that, that’s fine but most people are just normal human beings. Just because you work out it doesn’t mean you don’t want to have fun as well.” MDF will offer five signature classes over six days a week, with classes being coordinated by one of London’s most sought after personal trainers, Harry Jameson and delivered by his handpicked team. The venue will stay open for a few

hours after the class is finished, so that people can chill out in the bar area – with either a protein shake or pint. “If you want to reward yourself with a gin and tonic after your workout that’s fine. It’s all about balance,” said the spokesperson. Ministry first became associated with fitness when the club played host to Eric Prydz’s Call on Me, music video. They’ve since launched a series of fitness albums, which have become favourites for runners and gym bunnies. “It’s going to be a really fun place to go,” said the spokesperson. “It’s for real life people. You work hard and play hard.” Sessions cost £14.

If the move goes ahead, customers would no longer be able to collect undelivered or oversized parcels from Silvester Road – they’d need to go to Highshore Road instead. Royal Mail has assured customers who can’t travel to Peckham that there are other ways to retrieve parcels – such as rearranging a new delivery slot. Royal Mail is not currently able to confirm when a decision on the proposed re-location is likely to be made,

or when it will happen if it’s agreed. There are 37 staff employed at the Dulwich office, who Royal Mail has confirmed would be transferred to the Peckham site. Royal Mail is also reviewing the option of relocating its Kennington and Walworth delivery office on Crampton Street to its Southwark and Rotherhithe delivery office in Mandela Way. A spokesperson for Royal Mail said: “No final decision has been made yet and we are committed to continuing to provide a first class service to all our business and residential customers.”

ADVERTORIAL

SOUTHWARK LOCAL Care Networks (LCN) bring together doctors, nurses, social workers, home care workers, the voluntary and community sectors and Healthwatch to work on shared goals to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

During this year and next, Southwark LCNs will be designing, implementing and managing health and care services for people in Southwark who have three or more long term health conditions. In order to do this, they need to understand what life is like for these patients and what their experiences of care are at the moment. GP Federations (groups of GPs working together in north and south Southwark) wrote to around 2,000 patients in October 2016, inviting them to help us find out. They had responses from 120 who were interested in sharing their views with us. Of those, nearly 50 said they were happy to give us their story

PEOPLE TELL US that when they’re ill or have hurt themselves, they don’t know where to go for help. Should it be to see a doctor or nurse at your GP practice? Your local pharmacist? An urgent care centre? Or should you just rest at home? To help you to know what to do and where to go, the NHS in south east London has developed a website called Health Help Now. Thousands of people have already used it to check their symptoms and find the best place for treatment. Health Help Now shows nearby services that are open and a map of how to get there

Patients help build our Local Care Networks and, working with Healthwatch and Revealing Reality, we visited 16 people to listen to their experiences in depth. What’s more, 22 local people joined us for a workshop on 19 January 2017 to tell us what was important to them, and what they feel needs to be put in place across health and care so that everyone involved in their care

so it’s ideal if you need healthcare in hurry, late at night, or at the weekend. Whether you have sprained your ankle, have a baby with a high temperature, a child who is being sick, a teenager who is feeling low or a range of other health problems, Health Help Now can guide you to the local service that will help you best. Developed by GPs, hospital doctors, paramedics and other health professionals the app is free and easy to use. It helps users by breaking down symptoms by age group – baby, child, teenager, adult and older adult. Advice on a broad range of problems is also available – such as

and support (including family members) knows what’s important to the patient and how to support them. We were joined by GPs, nurses, hospital doctors, pharmacists, social workers, voluntary and community sector colleagues in the afternoon to take part in the conversations about what we need to put in place so that everyone

where to buy children’s medication when pharmacies are closed – and links to other useful websites. No matter where you are in the borough the app will quickly direct you to the most appropriate support nearby – so you can be confident that you’re getting the right help. Importantly, Health Help Now will also help people to know when to go to A&E, and when not to. This can help our local A&E departments focus on lifesaving care for the most seriously ill and injured patients over the busy winter period.

involved in someone’s care knows what their goals are and how everyone can work together to help people achieve these. A report is currently being written of what people said, and this will help inform the LCNs of what they need to put in place to improve care for this group of people and their families. One attendee commented: “My

thanks for what felt a very well thought out, considerate and comfortable patient engagement event. I hope the outcome will make a meaningful contribution to improving peoples' lives.” LCNs are described in more detail in Southwark’s Five Year Forward View.

Why people with learning disabilities should get health checks NHS SOUTHWARK CCG has launched a film for people with learning disabilities. The film is about why it is important to have a health check every year and what it will be like.

People with learning disabilities have poorer health than the general population. This is because people in this group are more likely to have difficulty saying how they feel and seeing a doctor or nurse when they need to. Research shows that regular health checks for people with learning disabilities can often uncover treatable health conditions. More serious illnesses, such as cancer, can also be found at an earlier stage when they can

be more easily treated. For this reason, most Southwark GPs provide annual health checks for patients with learning disabilities and want to encourage anyone who has a learning disability or who cares for someone with a learning disability to contact their doctor if they haven't had a health check in the past year. You can see the film on the CCG's YouTube channel. If you need any more information ask at your doctor's surgery.

Get on your bike, don’t jump in a cab

AST WEEK was a terrible one on London’s streets. Six pedestrians and cyclists were killed and there were days of high traffic pollution alerts.

About 170 people died from traffic pollution diseases and another 55 people from inactivity diseases, as 60% of Londoners who want to cycle, are afraid to. Thankfully no kids were killed but in Southwark many schools’ pollution levels broke EU safety limits, threatening their lungs with stunted growth. I was asked to speak at the Stop Killing Cyclists rally outside HM Treasury on Saturday, which called on the Chancellor Phillip Hammond, to increase the tiny 1% of the transport budget spent on cycling, to 10% by 2020. I was surprised to learn that the congestion stats for the London congestion zone, including north Southwark, show that the single largest source of congestion is taxis! Black cabs make up 23% of weekday traffic from 6am to 8pm and private hire vehicles make up another 14%. Thus, taxis make up 37% of all congestion! Any time I go down the Strand or Holborn, there are bumper to bumper black cabs, pumping out diesel pollution. Most cabbies are really decent hardworking helpful people. So, what can be done about this? The London mayor has required that all new black-cabs should be hybrids from next year. Over time that will deal with some of the pollution. The explosion in Uber cab numbers needs urgent tackling. Tory ministers are refusing to allow London’s Mayor to regulate their numbers, now over 100,000! Many are idling on the side of our roads, waiting for a customer, chucking out pollution. We also need to reduce unnecessary taxi journeys. Many company employees jump into a cab on free corporate expense account for short hops to meetings in the congestion zone. Companies should take out membership of the Mayor’s Bike Hire Scheme or have their own bike-share. This would reduce congestion in north Southwark, where our most polluted schools are. Employees would be healthier, get to their meetings faster and save a fortune in cab fares for employers. So a win for our kids, a win for employees and a win for cleaner safer streets, fit for humans.

SEVENTEENTH CENTURY SCHOOL BOOK FINDS A NEW HOME IN LIBRARY

It was an honour to host Mr Arif’s wake

I HAVE always felt lucky to have grown up in the 1950s / 60s in Dockhead, Bermondsey great times, so many wonderful people and families.

And that was marked last week with the funeral of Yusuf (Yos) Arif. The Arifs were one of these families that have great respect in the area. It was therefore an honour for us to be told that Yos’s wish was for us to hold his wake in the Ship Aground pub. He was one of the most loved and respected men you could ever meet and I have great pride that the Ship Aground was his local pub. We will never have a busier day and appreciate all the praise we received. It was a great relief that his lovely girls had the faith in us to hold their great dad’s wake. Finally we must thank the following, as whilst we received the praise without the following people it could not be done. A big thank you to John, Kellie, Emma, Katie, Charlotte, Theresa, Light Ale Pete, Roy, Paul Sawyer, John Sutton, John Donovan and Ferrett. Mickey Jarman Senior, Ship Aground, Bermondsey

Hughes on whose to blame for Brexit

I RESPECT the EU referendum result even though I, like a large majority in Southwark, voted for the UK to stay in the European Union.

But the new MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark has now this month suggested in parliament that -of all least likely explanations - it is Liberal Democrats who are partly responsible for the Brexit referendum victory. My successor suggested that immigration became a proxy for issues like pressure on the NHS, and the inability to see a doctor and get the right class sizes,

owing to policies which Liberal Democrats supported which squeezed public services and meant that people looked for someone else to blame. This MP seems to be desperate to forget some recent history. First our new MP successfully nominated Mr Corbyn in 2015 to be Labour leader. But while Mr Farron and Liberal Democrats campaigned enthusiastically for 'remain' Mr Corbyn was so often absent from the 'remain' campaign or so low profile as to be almost invisible. If Labour had been enthusiastic or effective, the result could and almost certainly would have been different. Second, one of the policies which put most pressure on the UK in the last decade was Labour's government decision not to phase in freedom of movement of citizens from Poland and the other nine new EU countries in 2004 - which led quickly to many times more immigrants from Poland than predicted. And third, in spite of the dreadful national economic circumstances when Labour lost office in 2010, independent figures show £4 billion extra in real terms for our NHS from 2010 to 2014 after Liberal Democrats joined government (and with extra money for carers and child and adolescent mental health), and almost £2.5 billion more for pupil premiums for each disadvantaged pupil as well as real term increased school spending and redistributed to more deprived schools. And I could also remind people of Labour's national record on building council and social housing. Of course Liberal Democrats got far from everything we wanted in coalition with the Conservatives. But we always were and are committed enthusiastic Europeans as well as committed campaigners for our communities. Labour have just voted with the Conservatives to start UK withdrawal from the EU. If Mr C wants to 'blame' someone for the

Brexit vote, he and Labour should take their big share of the blame not try to rewrite history. Simon Hughes, Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate, Bermondsey and Old Southwark.

Reducing exposure to air pollution

THANK YOU for highlighting the air pollution health emergency (Southwark News editorial and front page, 2 February).

We are now enduring yet another episode of high air pollution. Eyes and throats are sore. Hacking coughs linger. Asthma attacks are more frequent. Schools keep children indoors to protect them. Older people and those with heart and lung problems are advised to cut down on everyday activities. We now know air pollution is linked to heart attacks, stroke, diabetes and dementia. Are we saying nothing can be done? Southwark Council’s Air Quality plan is weak and lacks detail. Southwark Green Party has called on the council to take immediate action, giving many concrete suggestions. For example, the council could: stop buying diesel vehicles for its own fleet, educate all its drivers on turning off engines when stopped, and create protected routes and traffic-free zones outside schools so parents and children feel safe to walk, cycle and scoot. Many residents also took the time to respond to the council with their own heartfelt calls for action and thoughtful comments. Some of these can be found on www.southwarkgreenparty.org.uk/ news, along with five tips on how to reduce your personal exposure to air pollution. It is time for action at all levels.

OR ME, one of the best things about last year was being introduced to Parkrun for the first time.

Parkrun is a free, organised 5 kilometre run which takes place in hundreds of parks up and down the country every Saturday morning at 9am. As someone who had never been good at sport, I was a bit daunted to receive an invitation in September to join one of the Parkruns in my constituency. I accepted the invitation and ran/staggered my way around the course. The surprise was not only that I managed to complete the run, but how good it made me feel both physically and mentally, and now even though I don’t run very fast, I try to make it to Parkrun on a Saturday morning whenever I can. In Parliament, I sit on the Communities and Local Government Select Committee, which has just published a report on Parks. We took evidence from across the country about what people think about their local parks and the challenges parks are currently facing. Our report reflected what I already knew that people value their local parks enormously, and that parks contribute significantly to improved physical and mental health, as well as helping to address important challenges like air pollution and climate change. They also bring our communities together, whether it is children and their parents at Saturday morning sports clubs, joggers and cyclists of all ages, families picnicking, dog walkers or older residents enjoying the fresh air, parks are places that everyone can enjoy regardless of their background or income. However, across the country council budgets have come under pressure as our councils have had their funding cut first by the Tory and Lib Dem coalition and now by this Tory government. Here in Southwark, we have excellent parks - including 25 Green Flag parks - and the council has worked hard to protect and enhance our parks and green spaces. Our parks are well maintained, offer a wide range of facilities and enjoy invaluable support from volunteers. But across the country, budgets for parks management have been cut by as much as 97%. Our Parliamentary report on parks calls for councils to publish a plan for parks working in partnership with the local Health and Wellbeing Board so that their value, particularly to physical and mental health, is properly recognised. It is time the government stopped unfairly cutting council budgets and provided the funding we need to maintain the services we rely on, including our much loved parks.

WHAT’S ON 19

in Southwark

I thought that the theatre might have fallen victim to the redevelopment of the railway arches. So, I was delighted to receive an invitation to review this musical and therefore learn that the theatre was alive and kicking in brand new premises over the road. What is also good news for old fans and new, is that although the building is new, it hasn’t lost any of the character or atmosphere of the old. This musical flopped pretty badly when first staged on Broadway in 1964. It has lived on in various forms but perhaps it was simply waiting in the wings ‘for such a time as this’. In the words of the director Phil Wilmott, “I’ve chosen to revive it now, at the start of the Trump presidency, because I believe that the time may have finally come for a spiky cartoon of a show about greed and narcissism in high office, in which half of the electorate view the other half as certifiably insane’ The setting is a small town in America, on the verge of bankruptcy as its only manufacturing product never wears out, and all the markets are saturated. A plan is conceived by the power hungry, narcissistic trio; Mayoress Cora Hooper Hoover, Judge Shub and preacher turned Town treasurer Cooley. They invent a miracle flow of water from a rock and sure enough, pilgrims and tourists flock to see it. At the height of its fame, the cartoonishly vile Mayoress speculates about how far this success might take her, Governor? Perhaps even President? There was an audible ripple of recognition at this point, although perhaps the current political circumstances are too raw for outright laughter.

For me his most exciting work was the 60s when he first began making a name for himself - for very good reason - but what followed was always as interesting, if not as daring. You can see in his early art how, when he first began attracting interest, he drew on the influences of the artists he studied or admired, showing aspects of Van Gogh, Miro, Dali, Cezanne, while at the same time keeping his work very contemporary. There are traces of Impressionism; the large slabs of colour, a feature in much of Hockney’s work, highlights his nod at Cubism; there was, too, an abstract phase. But eventually the time came when Hockney’s own unique style shone through, when, after taking from

Hockney continued the theme, in Room 10 of the 13, with several canvases making up one main picture, and even further (Room 11) with numerous video screens of the same place creating a whole. I think my favourite piece was the Four Seasons, videos of a slow ride along the same country lane at a different season on a different wall each. Quite magical. I was mesmerised by the moving winter images and found it difficult to leave the room. This will be one of the biggest exhibitions of the year, and I think David Hockney has earnt that right.

owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, the Runaways, and Heart. Lizzie comes to Greenwich Theatre following a run at Fredericia Teater, Denmark in January 2017

Cora Hoover Hooper and her town council fake a miracle - water flowing from a rock - to attract tourists. When patients at the local mental hospital escape and mix with the townspeople and tourists, chaos ensues whilst J. Bowden Hapgood, a fake psychiatrist falls in love with Fay Apple, a nurse at the asylum who has disguised herself as a miracle verifier sent from Lourdes. Union Theatre, Wednesday 8th February – 11th March, 2.30pm / 7.30pm, £20-£22.50. VAULTS 7AD, Leake Street, SE1 7NN (020 7401 9603) Claustrophilia Kidnapped. A prisoner. 983 Days. But what happens after she escapes? Alice spent most of her adolescence held prisoner in a single room. Now she is out, an adult, has a home, and she is fine. Except maybe she is not. ‘Claustrophilia’ is a onewoman play about trauma, PTSD, misery porn, the limits of the human imagination, and unrequited love. It was first performed (as a short play-in-progress) at the Lion and the Unicorn Theatre and was also presented

as part of Courting Drama at the Southwark Playhouse. Vaults, Thursday 17th – Friday 18th February, 1.30pm / 6.15pm, £12.

Relations between the Islamic and European powers are tense and difficult. He says he’s Christian. Ali, his captor is Muslim. Ali’s daughter loves her father but she’s made him angry. He’s arranging a marriage and she so doesn’t want a husband. She knows he has tried to escape before. Perhaps Don Quixote could organise another escape and take her with him to get away from Algiers. Will he take such a risk? He was Miguel de Cervantes and Algiers was a multicultural, cosmopolitan city. Both sides had slaves and pirates, both wanted power and the money to support it. The four characters tussle with freedom, truth, women’s place, identity and trust. White Bear Theatre, Untill 4th March, 4pm / 7.30pm, £12-£15.

Cosy old Fentiman’s a welcome winter refuge THE FENTIMAN ARMS 64 Fentiman Road SW8 1LA 020 7793 9796

WWW.THEFENTIMANARMS.CO.UK

WHEN I arrived at the Fentiman Arms, it was with great pleasure. It looked like a good solid pub, dimly lit and cosy on a Baltic-cold January evening, there’s little else that could appeal more, writes Kirsty Purnell...

I was guided to the upstairs dining area by a very friendly waitress. I was late but so was my friend, so in his absence, I set about menu deliberation. My food choices were limited to a single sheet of A4 and I was pleased – too much food choice is never a good thing, particularly when I had a “hangry man” en-route. I was still defrosting from my walk and the spread fit well with what I was craving – familiar, hearty, gastro-food. My friend arrived and our attentive waitress was on hand to proffer recommendations. He wasted no time and dived right in with the crispy mozzarella sticks followed by the fishcake and I went for the honey and mustard mini sausages and the chicken kiev. Both ravenous, we diverted our attention from our stomachs to

surveying the room. It’s a busy little setup, with a library lining the dimly-lit back area (in-keeping with the pub’s back to school theme), antler masquerading as lampshades, vintage prints on the wall and multi-coloured diamond wallpaper. I made a fledgling attempt to describe it – “is this….shabby chic?” “No, darling. It’s retro British with a mix of gentleman’s club”. Great. Always good to have a designer on hand. The food arrived swiftly and I wasn’t disappointed with my sizeable portion of spicy mini-sausages. The mozzarella sticks hit the spot too but a strongertasting sauce might have worked well with them. Mains followed shortly afterward and the chicken kiev stood out for me – a very strong, garlic flavour and a goodsized portion and it was presented well, with the kiev sliced open. I could have done with more garlic sauce but maybe that’s just me. Alex’s fishcake was – no surprises – very fishy but he said that the hollandaise sauce tempered the flavour well. We opted for some truffle oil and rosemary chips as a side and I approved of the fact that they were the good old chunky kind of chip that your nan would make, rather than the skinny fry which seems to be fashionable in London these days. We were both satisfied. It was reliable pub food, familiar favourites – just done a bit better. We decided to have a break and I went for a recce. The back to school theme is peppered around - the beer garden is the

“playground” and covers from Penguin books posit as wallpaper – but it’s not too try-hard. Their outdoor area is big and they have a burger hatch there, so no surprise that the place is heaving come summer and the cricket season, with the Oval round the corner. Back to the agenda of food, it was dessert time and I ordered a steamed lemon sponge and Alex had a jam rolly polly. Both were very rich and a bit more than we could cope with after two

courses but they were tasty. So – what can the Fentiman Arms offer? Reliable, hearty, pub grub, with some added bits of flair. Perfect for a cold winter evening. FOOD (1-5) VALUE (1-5) AMBIENCE (1-5) DISABLED ACCESS DISABLED TOILET BOOKING

This holistic approach to health is not entirely new, though. The Peckham Experiment was already exploring these ideas, back in 1926. “The Peckham Experiment set out to define – what is health?” explains Jack Czauderna, Chair of the Pioneer Health Foundation - an organization set up to continue the legacy and ideas of the Experiment. Brainchild of pathologists Dr George Scott Williamson and Dr Innes Hope Pearse, the Experiment sought to move away from the idea of health as an absence of disease and instead, to understand the factors which make a person well. To answer their question, they set about inviting local families to their facility – which was first based in a small house in Queen’s Road from 1926-1929 and then later, after a hiatus while they sought out extra funding, in the purpose-built Pioneer House on St Mary’s Road in 1935 – to take part in a range of physical, social and cultural activities. From the outset, Pearse and Williamson believed that family dynamics and social interactions were fundamental to wellness, so they limited their target group to local families – with the eligibility criteria being that the family “must within pram pushing distance of the centre.” “They chose Peckham because it gave them the opportunity to look at the whole population – there were artisans mixed in with labourers. It was a mix of classes.” said Jack. When famililes joined, they received an “annual health overhaul” – much like a medical – but this was where the focus on disease ended. “People were never told – ‘you’ve got to do this’. They were given the findings from the health overhaul, advised to visit a GP if needed but aside from that, they were just told to go and use the facilities. Until the following year, when they’d be looked at again.” “There was a belief that medical issues and deficiencies needed sorting but family health was about how individuals interact with their society,” said Jack. Pam Elven, 88, was seven years old when her family joined the project. “It was just magic. The freedom that we had to learn, it was just out of this world,” she said.

history

Children playing on the roof of the Pioneer Health Centre

She describes how the Centre gave her opportunities she’d never have had otherwise, such as learning to swim in the giant pool, learning to play badminton and access to the gymnasium. “It changed my life. It gave me selfconfidence, something which I didn’t have as a child,” she said. “It helped you have community. And there was a mixed community there too – white collar workers as well as labourers.” The Centre temporarily shut during World War 2 but subsequently reopened in 1946. It was this year that Pam met her future husband at the centre, who she went on to marry in 1950, aged 21. However, the haven provided by the Peckham Experiment wasn’t to last forever. The launch of the NHS in 1948 made it difficult for the Doctor’s

to secure ongoing funding for the Pioneer Centre, essentially because its innovative approach – and focus on holistic health – did not fit well

with elements of the NHS. It closed in 1950. “It was like a death when the notice [of closure] went up,” said Pam. “We thought our new life was going to be forever.” So what did the doctors learn at the Experiment? “It’s about cultivating health. Once someone is in better health then that affects people in their community. It’s contagious,” said Jack, who’s been a GP for 30 years. “These days, we talk about the loss of community spirit and cohesion. I don’t necessarily believe that these things have gone but the experiment was a demonstration that improved community links help people.” “My experience as a GP is that you can give people medication to make them better but you can’t give them health.” “They [Williamson and Pearse]

learned that you can’t tell people what to do. They won’t do it. In the beginning, they tried to set up formalized weight loss and fitness groups and people just didn’t come. Instruction doesn’t work. You have to just let people do what they feel is in their interests,” he said. Does Dr Czauderna think we can recreate the Experiment? “People are thinking more now about health and not just the absence of disease. I don’t know if we can recreate the building in the same way but we can definitely apply the principles of focusing on health, rather than the absence of disease,” he said. The Pioneer Health Foundation has an archive of material relating to the work of the Peckham Experiment. You can find out more at their website www.thephf.org

Charlie wants York Wynn-er

Hamlet through after topsyTurvey tie

DULWICH HAMLET scored two late goals to advance to the semi-finals of the Alan Turvey Trophy after a 3-2 win at AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday night.

The home side took the lead in the 38th minute through Kenzer Lee before Ibra Sekajja equalised before the break. Tobi Coker put Hornchurch back in front but substitute Gavin Tomlin levelled with six minutes left and Ashley Carew, who had also come off the bench, flighted a free-kick into the box that eluded everyone before finding the back of the net go steal the win. Meanwhile, on Saturday, Hamlet’s Matt Drage put his side in front at table-toppers Bognor Regis Town in their Isthmian League Premier Division clash, but James Crane levelled five minutes from time. That result left the Hamlet in ninth place in the table.

Gavin Rose’s side are in the last eight of the competition for only the second time and a big crowd is expected at Champion Hill against the Silkmen, who are two divisions above them in the National League. Hamlet have already knocked a fifth-tier side out of the trophy, winning 5-2 against Braintree Town in the last round and banking a cheque for £7,000. Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £4 concessions.

Lionesses face Forest hurdle

MILLWALL LIONESSES face Nottingham Forest Ladies in the fourth round of the Women’s FA Cup this weekend.

The fixture takes place at Fisher’s ground St Paul’s in Rotherhithe on Sunday, February 19. Tickets are priced £5 for adults and £2 concessions. The Lionesses lost the opening game of the FA WSL 2 Spring Series, going down 1-0 to Durham Ladies last weekend.

SOUTHWARK FIGHTER Charlie Wynn hopes all the sacrifice will have been worth it when he steps into the ring at York Hall for his second professional fight this weekend.

Millwall fanatic Wynn fights Manchester’s Steven Backhouse in a welterweight non-title fight on Saturday night. Wynn, 27, who trains out of Peacock Gym in Canning Town and is managed by Martin Bower, began his professional career with a December points win over Duane Green. Backhouse was beaten in his last bout by Conor Benn, the son of former world middleweight champion, Nigel.

Millwall fan aiming for second professional win to boost full-time hopes

Wynn is an electrician by trade, and will be looking for another victory this weekend to boost his chances of being able to concentrate on boxing full-time. “All the hard stuff is done now, there is no sparring, so it’s about dropping that last bit of weight, about three pounds,” Wynn said. “I’ll be doing some speed work and just sharpening the tools. “It’s another step up the ladder. I’m freelance so I could box for one promoter and then a different one the next time. “I’m working as well, five days a week. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I finish earlier and get into the gym about two or three o’clock. I lose some wages that way but I rely on myself. “I don’t want to take a step back. In an ideal world I want to do this full-time. Some seek sponsorship and can sit around until going into the gym in the afternoon.

“Ninety-per cent have to graft and if they don’t they won’t make it. I sell a few tickets but I’m not completely relying on it, I’m not relying just on the fight to make money. “But it’s hard work. I’m out the door by six-thirty am and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I don’t get home from the gym until about nine at night.” It doesn’t leave much time for a social life, though he will take time to relax after Saturday’s bout. “No, no, that’s all out the window,” he said. “You can’t live both lives. I tried it as an amateur and I got found out. I’ll have a week out of the gym after the fight this weekend and maybe have a wine with the missus. “I’m 27, I was quite late turning pro. I only started as an amateur at 20. Some kids are in when they are eleven or twelve and have enough of it before they’re 20. I

think it’s worked out well for me.” Wynn’s other main sporting passion is the Lions, the club all his family and the majority of his friends support. Millwall take on Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday afternoon at The Den for a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. But Wynn’s weigh-in is the same day before his fight that night. “I can’t do both, which is a pain in the arse,” he said. “I can’t make all games, but I do get to quite a few. I usually can get to midweek games but not Port Vale on Tuesday night with this fight coming up.” And as for future ambitions, perhaps a fight at The Den? “That would be blinding.” Wynn fights on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, at around 9.30pm.

Abraham Opoku put Peckham ahead early on before the home side levelled from the spot following a foul by Sam Strong. Centre-back Strong made amends, however, when he put

#PLAYLIKEAPRO WITH THE BIG MATCH

J

oin us on the 20th May as The Big Match takes over The Den with celebrities, fans & ex-professional footballers, like Razor Ruddock & World Cup champions Ricky Villa and Osvaldo Ardiles, joining the action.

Lets not forget to mention that ex-Millwall legend Jimmy Carter will also be lacing up his boots once again. Founded in 2012 by Neil Humphries, The Big Match is a charity football event and

family fun day that raises huge sums of money for The Brain Tumour Charity & Action for Children. For successive years Neil has hosted The Big Match at various different clubs firstly at Reading F.C - a club his father “loved so much” (The Big Match, 2016). The day consists of three fantastic events starting with The Big Match Kidz for children aged 5-15 who can enjoy free professional coaching by our expert & highly qualified staff at the Millwall Community Trust.

Here there will be exprofessional footballers getting involved and offering unique, personal advice. The Big Match itself will kick off soon after with teams made up of Celebrities, Ex-Footballers and the public where both teams will be competing for the illustrious Big Match Shield. Last but not least there is the Extra Time evening special where you can enjoy some wonderful food and entertainment with exciting guest appearances. Overall this wonderful event

boils down to its purpose – to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity and Action for Children. These two inspiring charities work effortlessly all year round to restore a sense of belief in people’s lives again. Historically, Millwall’s association and work with various charities, or charitable causes, has often gone unnoticed – however that has never stopped us.

Join us on the 20th May 2017 at the Lion’s Centre and The Den for an entire day of action

packed fun and for more information visit www.thebigmatch.co.uk or via Twitter @TheBigMatchCo.

Millwall 1 - 0 Southend

RIGHT HEAD FRED By Jay Taylor at the Den

news@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL’S VICTORY over fellow play-off hopefuls Southend was psychologically significant.

This tight, tense 1-0 win against the ten-man Shrimpers courtesy of Fred Onyedinma’s header left the Lions in League One’s top six for the first time since early September at a crucial stage of the season. That Neil Harris’ side ground out this result over opponents who had won the corresponding fixture 2-0 last season without a number of first-team players made it even more impressive. Lee Gregory, Ben Thompson and Shaun Hutchinson were all missing through injury, while Shaun Williams' wife went into labour in the small hours of Saturday morning before giving birth to the couples’ second child. Mahlon Romeo made way for Shaun Cummings' return to the starting XI after the latter had been rested for the win at Coventry the previous weekend. In truth, there wasn’t much to excite the 10,323 in attendance in the early stages, with the visitors setting their stall out to get out of SE16 with at least a point. After a cagey opening ten minutes the Lions eventually started to establish their dominance in possession. Onyedinma, playing up front, was lively and industrious without any reward, first playing in a low cross to Steve Morison who hooked his effort onto the roof of the net. Onyedinma produced a carbon-copy pass to Aiden O’Brien soon after that, but the former Republic of Ireland U21 international saw his whipped effort go narrowly over the crossbar. Referee Andre Marriner waved away Simon Cox’s penalty appeal after the forward got in behind defender Byron Webster and went to ground. With the temperature plummeting the game heated up in the 34th minute when Will Atkinson caught Lions captain Tony Craig with a late challenge and was shown a straight red card by Marriner. Southend reverted to a 4-4-1 formation and defended deep with the home side unable to make their organised build-up play count for anything in the final third as they wasted possession on numerous occasions. That finally changed on 63 minutes, Onyedinma heading Cummings’ cross past Ted Smith. Southend fans were incensed when Jermaine McGlashan tumbled under Craig’s challenge and Marriner failed to give what looked like a certain spotkick. Calum Butcher, making his first start in the league since October, could have added a second late on but Smith saved from the midfielder. But the Lions held on to stretch their unbeaten run to eleven games. Millwall: 4-4-2: Archer; Cummings, Webster, Cooper, Craig; Wallace (Ferguson, 70), Abdou, Butcher, O'Brien (Worrall, 82); Onyedinma, Morison.

Millwall set for biggest crowd of the season as they face Premier League champions

SHANE FERGUSON admits Leicester City have “world-class players” – but believes the home atmosphere could help Millwall to another cup upset.

The Lions knocked AFC Bournemouth out in the third round of the FA Cup before Ferguson produced a sublime cross for Steve Morison’s winner against Watford. Leicester’s 2-0 loss at Swansea last weekend was their fourth successive league defeat – they lost just three in the entire 2015-16 campaign – and sixth league game without a goal. Millwall are reporting a surge in ticket sales for the game as fans anticipate another special occasion, with only a handful of blocks at The Den left with seats available by Monday night. “It’s a great challenge,” Ferguson

said. “It’s unbelievable to be playing against the Premier League champions, even if they are having a bit of a hard time of it at the minute. “They’ve got world-class players but are going through a bit of a sticky patch. I’m sure they will get out of it. “We’re full of confidence going into the game. We’re probably one of the last teams you want to be playing right now. “You saw in the Watford game the atmosphere was unbelievable and that helps the lads a lot. Hopefully we can give them the result that they want.” Millwall went through a difficult spell earlier this season when they failed to win in six games, a sequence that left them outside the League One relegation zone only on goal difference. Leicester are in danger of becoming the first top-flight English team since Manchester City in 1937-38 to be relegated the season after winning the title, and Ferguson believes there is only one way to correct poor form. “It’s on the training pitch where you

put it right,” he said. “We worked really hard and looked back on games to see where we were going wrong and tried to fix those mistakes. “Thankfully now we have and we’re looking up at the moment. “It’s all about repetition and trying to get it perfect. We have done a lot of work on the defensive side of our game and it’s been paying off.” Leicester’s title win was built on a specific and consistent style of play: sitting deep and absorbing pressure before attacking quickly with few passes using the pace of the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy. Millwall are similarly set up, and will employ the same game plan on Saturday that has worked for them so far in the competition. “That’s the way we play,” Ferguson explained. “Lots of times this season we’ve had to soak up a lot of pressure. “We’re a counterattacking team and I think we do it really well. “People might have thought they were going to have an easy game in

previous rounds, and maybe they got a bit of a shock. There’s no pressure on us, we’re enjoying our cup run.” Ferguson signed a new deal this week until the summer of 2019 after some impressive performances since joining from Newcastle United before the start of the 2015-16 season. The 25-year-old has played more club games in that time than he did in his professional career before his move. And it’s the security and a sense of belonging that made it an easy decision to sign a long-term contract. “That’s the main thing, you always want to know where you’re going to be and it’s nice to get a couple of years,” he said. “Hopefully in that time I can help the team get back up into the Championship where they should be. “The lads have been great to me here. They’ve made me feel settled and I’ve really enjoyed myself. All the staff are the same as well. I’m really happy here.”

MILLWALL MIDFIELDER Jimmy Abdou says he is working towards ensuring he stays at the club beyond this season.

Abdou, 32, was one of the first players Lions boss Neil Harris wanted to secure in the summer of 2015 before his first full season in charge. Abdou, who joined Millwall in 2008 from Plymouth, signed a two-year deal until June 2017. After being a regular for most of his time at the club and hitting 300 Millwall appearances last season, he has been behind Ben Thompson and Shaun Williams for a place in Harris’ starting XI this campaign. But he isn’t ready to end his time at the club just yet. “It’s hard to believe how quickly the years have gone by,” he said. “I remember when I signed my first contract, it was after a meeting in a hotel with Kenny Jackett. It feels like it was yesterday. “I talked with a few other clubs at the time but Kenny called me and told me he appreciated the way I played. That’s what I was looking for at the time in a manager and he gave me the chance. “I didn’t know a lot about Millwall but I learned quickly after coming in. I’m really proud and happy to still be here and contributing. “Staying longer is my target now and I’m working for that. We’ll see at the end of the season.” Abdou got back into the Millwall side after Thompson picked up a hamstring injury in the 2-0 win at Coventry, and started alongside Calum Butcher in the centre of midfield for the first time this season in the victory over Southend last weekend. Abdou admitted it hasn’t been easy being on the bench so often as Millwall worked through a difficult period earlier in the season before reigniting their playoff bid and moving into the top six after their 1-0 win over the Shrimpers. He said: “As a professional you want to play every game, so it is a quite difficult situation. But you just have to accept it. I just try to train hard and make sure I am ready when the gaffer needs me. I always try my best and do what the gaffer asks me to do.

DAVID FORDE kept his twelfth clean sheet of the season as Portsmouth kept up their playoff challenge by beating Accrington 2-0 on Saturday.

Pompey are sixth in the League Two table. In League One, winger Gregg Wylde came on with six minutes to go as Northampton Town continued their resurgence with a 3-1 win at home to Chesterfield. In the fifth tier at the weekend, Kris Twardek and Kyron Farrell both started in midfield as Braintree Town defeated North Ferriby United 1-0 to stay clear of the relegation zone.

other a little bit. He goes more forward and I stay back a bit. I give him the freedom to be more attacking. We’ve got a good understanding and we can work well together.” Meanwhile, Harris insisted Abdou is still a crucial part of the squad and confirmed the club want to extend his nine-year stay. “Jimmy is a big part of this club, he’s due a testimonial this summer,” Harris

said. “Jimmy’s long-term future lies at this club. He’s a great pro, he hasn’t played too much football recently but when he comes in he does a solid and reliable job for the team. “He always puts the team before himself and loves playing for this club. I thought the boys that came in last weekend took their opportunity well. “There is always the fear factor that they

are going to try too hard to impress. We made four changes from a really good performance against Coventry, but I felt it was right for the Southend game. “We’re getting into the stage of the season now where consistency is key, continuity is key but it’s about picking a side I feel is capable of beating the opposition, with players that are fresh and in form.”

NEXT THREE FIXTURES

Leicester (H) FA Cup - Feb 18 Chesterfield (H) League 1 - Feb 21 Oldham (A) League 1 - Feb 25

Tuesday night's win over Port Vale and Scunthorpe's recent stumbles have left the deficit at nine points to second place in League One, but if Millwall continue their surge that could quickly reduce further. With Millwall looking so accomplished every fixture looks more and more winnable, and two wins in their next two games against struggling sides will turn up the heat on those above them. Neil Harris' team were so impressive against the Valiants, who probably just about did justice to their nickname but were obviously outclassed. In this kind of form - and even missing three key players in Ben Thompson, Lee Gregory and Shaun Hutchinson - there aren't many League One teams that can live with the Lions. They have also shown there are a couple of Premier League teams who can't, and next Saturday's Fa Cup opponents Leicester City will have noted this result that extended Millwall's unbeaten run in all competitions to twelve games with unease. The Den is set to be close to a sell-out and it promises to be an exhilarating afternoon of cup football. The league is the priority even if Harris had the luxury of being able to take off Steve Morison and Fred Onyedinma with seventeen minutes left and then Aiden O'Brien four minutes later with one eye on the weekend. Harris had insisted no one had been looking ahead to that Foxes clash, but there was no chance Port Vale were going to work their way back into the game at that stage. That trio of players were among Millwall's most impressive performers, along with the outstanding Jake Cooper. His talent is such that it seems likely Millwall will have to be in the Championship to have any chance of striking a permanent deal for him in the summer. Even then, a number of clubs will have noted his quality and authority and it is now eight hours since Millwall conceded a goal with him in the team. O'Brien is also at the height of his confidence and the way he linked up with Onyedinma and Jed Wallace, who is growing in influence, was thrilling a times. O'Brien could have put Millwall in front early on after Onyedinma, as he did so often on the night, surged down the right to cross, but his team-mate fizzed the ball just wide of the near post with the outside of his boot. It was a superb move. Those two linked up again for Millwall's opener in the 26th minute, though there was some fortune when an attempted clearance came back off Onyedinma to land at the feet of O'Brien twelve yards out. There are few calmer than him in that position, and he calmly rolled the ball under Leo Fasan for his twelfth goal of the season. Later in the game, with Millwall rampant and attacking from multiple angles, O'Brien's reverse pass found Wallace but Fasan kept out the winger's

shot. “Aiden is a goal scorer with a tremendous work ethic,” Harris said. “He was a threat all night and he’s such a clever player. He plays between the lines, he’s a young man and he’s going to get things wrong, of course he is. “But he’s a threat for us from a wide area and he deserved that little bit of luck when the ball broke to him. It was a composed finish." Millwall could have won this game much more comfortably and the hope is the failure to further add to their goal difference won't be decisive later on. If Cooper’s addition in defence looks like a huge coup, Onyedinma’s impact

up front in the last two games has been like a new, turbo-charged addition to the attack. If the 20-year-old wasn’t zooming past defenders who couldn’t cope with his pace, he was providing a target in the centre, and from one brilliant Morison cross Onyedinma forced Fasan into another save, one of nine he had to make in 90 minutes. Port Vale were so far off the level they were when they defeated Millwall 3-1 in September, and really miss the authority in midfield that Anthony Grant gave them before he left for Peterborough. The sense of a mis-match was summed up in the contest between

Morison and Nathan Smith, the young defender unable to handle Millwall’s vice-captain. Michael Brown’s side was further weakened when their best defender, Remie Streete, went off injured after coming off worst when Byron Webster bravely blocked his attempted shot on the edge of the Millwall box. Webster was also excellent, and with Shaun Cummings so solid at right-back and Tony Craig arguably playing his best football on the other side of the defence, it has given Millwall a new freshness at a crucial stage of the season. The visitors also struggled to contain Millwall at attacking set-pieces, and

Main: Jake Cooper scores the second after (inset) Aiden O’Brien had given Millwall the lead

Cooper scored his second goal in three games from the corner from Shaun Williams that came seconds after Morison had seen his penalty saved by Fasan. Wallace had won it when he sprung onto O’Brien’s pass and Kjell Knops brought him down. Harris felt Millwall were being impeded at dead-ball situations, but Cooper’s power enabled him to get through before his header was almost kept out by Ben Purkiss coming off the post to try to cover his goalkeeper. “We had it on the screen earlier, I think it’s gone over the line,” Harris said. “I thought the linesman did really well, he was brave to give it.

“We won’t bemoan penalty decisions with manhandling in the penalty area because I thought we got away with one last Saturday (against Southend). “That’s three games in a row now that if the referee wants to follow the letter of the law with players being able to have a free run at the ball, then we could have had fourteen penalties in those games. We should have had two clear ones last weekend and we could have had four or five Tuesday night. “We are a threat at set-pieces and they are the number-one opportunity to score goals in football at any level. “I’m pleased we’ve got good delivery at the moment and good size.”

The lead could have been extended but Fasan denied Onyedinma and then kept out that Wallace shot with six minutes to go. Port Vale, by contrast, only offered a JJ Hooper effort that was easily saved by Archer in the first half – their only shot on target in the game – and then Tyler Walker flashed a strike wide after Cooper’s goal. Behind all of that attacking dash, Williams and Calum Butcher steadily backed it up and were the first players recovering the ball when Port Vale tried to counter. That was only Butcher’s sixth start since joining the club last summer from Burton Albion, but he too could be an

FA Cup fifth round

important figure in the remaining part of the season. Harris said: “I thought they did well and got better as the game went on. I put Shaun back in the team because his performances over the last six weeks have warranted that. It was harsh on Jimmy (Abdou) not to get the opportunity, but with Butch in the team it gives us that added goal threat going forward. “He makes some really good runs into the box.” It’s all adding up to an exciting climax to the season – and Leicester might think they could do without being next in front of the juggernaut.

MILLWALL WINGER Shane Ferguson said it was a “straightforward decision” to extend his stay with Millwall.

Millwall face Premier League strugglers for last-eight place By John Kelly

Johnk@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL BOSS Neil Harris believes a trip to The Den is “the last thing Leicester City need” ahead of their FA Cup fifth-round clash this weekend.

The Foxes, the defending Premier League champions, arrive in south London on the back of six league games without a win or a goal, form that has sent them spiralling towards the relegation zone. The only goals they have scored since a 1-0 win over West Ham on New Year’s Eve have come in the FA Cup, and they needed a replay and extra-time to defeat Derby County in the last round. Millwall, meanwhile, knocked Premier League AFC Bournemouth

and Watford out of the competition in January. Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri made ten changes to his regular league side for the game against the Rams, and with the second round of the Champions League against Sevilla four days after Saturday’s fixture, he could play a second string at The Den. However, given Ranieri spent almost £70million on new players this season, Harris acknowledges the difficulty of Millwall’s task. “I think the last thing Leicester City need at the moment is coming to The Den on Saturday for an FA Cup game,” Harris said. “Claudio is a legend in the game and it was an unbelievable achievement last year. They put real pride and belief into English football. “The reality is where they are at the

moment is probably where most people expected them to be last year. They’ve stuttered this season but they’re still a top side. “They’re in the last sixteen of the FA Cup with the chance to progress, from their perspective, against us. They’re in the last sixteen of the hardest competition in the world, the Champions League. “Yes, their focus might be Champions League and Premier League survival, but the eleven players that Claudio was able to put on the pitch against Derby was a fantastically talented group. “Their squad has been put together for a lot of money, so whatever team we face at the weekend is going to be a very, very good side, full of international stars, and players that play regularly in the Premier League.

Claudio Ranieri

“It’s going to be a real test and it’s an opportunity for us to cause another upset, probably the biggest of the lot. It’s certainly a game for us to look forward to and try to compete against the champions of England last year.” Millwall will take a twelve-game unbeaten record into the tie after Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Port Vale.

Northern Ireland international Ferguson this week signed a deal until the summer of 2019, following the likes of youngsters Jordan Archer, Mahlon Romeo, Ben Thompson and Aiden O’Brien in committing their longterm futures to the club. Ferguson initially signed for Millwall on loan from Newcastle in August 2015, before joining on a permanent 18-month deal the following January. The 25-year-old has played 81 times for the Lions, including 35appearances this season and he has shown his versatility by covering the left-back position. Ferguson has scored three times this campaign, including twice in the FA Cup, with his late strike against AFC Bournemouth in the third round followed by an assist for Steve Morison’s goal at home to Watford that set up this weekend’s last-sixteen showdown with Leicester City. “It was a straightforward decision,” Ferguson said. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here at Millwall. The club have been great to me since the first day I came here. “I’m looking forward to spending a lot more time here. It’s just nice to have that sorted out so I can concentrate on my football. “The club came to me, and I spoke to the manager and it was all good. I’m looking forward to the future and hopefully we can keep pushing up the league table as well this season.”
