Dune under the stars Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s complex sci-fi novel Dune was one of the cinematic highlights of 2021, and not only because it starred Hollywood heart-throb Timothée Chalamet opposite the ever mesmerising Zendaya. Here comes another chance to watch it on the big screen – and this one under the stars – as St George’s Garrison Church in Woolwich makes Dune its August screening. Stock up on candy floss, popcorn and drinks at the bar, and take a seat.

It’s carnival time on Greenwich Peninsula, where Just Vibez, a weekend-long celebration of community spirit seasoned with Caribbean flavour, hopes to get everybody dancing. A mix of live acts, DJs and MCs promise to play everything from soca to hip hop, afro beats and reggae, and there will be dance classes to help the left footed. When you run out of steam, take your pick of the worldly street food offering and refuel. Greenwich Peninsula, London SE10 0SQ. August 13 & 14, 12pm - 6pm.

Recycled, repurposed, reloved While fast-fashion and the mass manufacturing of new toys are contributing to the climate crisis, there’s no reason a spot of shopping can’t be enjoyed if you do it second hand. As the owner of a vintage warehouse once told me, ‘all the clothes you could possibly want have already been made’. Head over the Shrewsbury House this Saturday for Rumble in the Jumble: a chance to shop for preloved clothing, homeware, toys, books and more. There will also be upcycling workshops on the day to inspire you to re-examine your own goods gathering dust in a cupboard somewhere.

How to get involved with Youth Takeover Day It was a hit last year, encouraging young people from Greenwich and beyond to get involved with all sorts of workshops and performances – from graffiti to street dance. Now, Youth Takeover Day returns to Greenwich Park for 2022 on Saturday August 13, offering kids and teens aged 8 – 18 a pick ‘n’ mix programme of cool activities free of charge. Part of the Royal Parks’ Greenwich Park Revealed programme, Youth Takeover Day is overseen by Woolwich-based community arts hub Tramshed.

Holly O’Mahony spoke to Elle Pethurst, Participation Manager for Tramshed and organiser of Youth Takeover Day, to find out more… Holly O’Mahony: How did Youth Takeover Day first come about? Elle Pethurst: We ran the event for the first time last year. The Royal Parks team approached us with the plan to start getting more young people in the park. They suggested a Youth Takeover Day, and we suggested a hip hop theme with lots of different activities, including performance. You can’t be at the Greenwich Park bandstand and not have a concert there,

after all! Last year’s performances saw young dance crews, soloists and spoken word artists perform their pieces to the park-goers. After the success of last year, we wanted to keep that momentum going. HOM: Tell us about some of the activities attendees will be able to get involved with… EP: We’ve got Parkour sessions run by our friends at Esprit Concrete, who

specialise in helping people connect with their inner selves through movement. We’ve got more street dance workshops and an evening performance from Greenwich Dance and Lotus Dance. We’ll also have Emergency Exit and Sunshine International Arts offering Moko Jumbie stilt-walking sessions for those aged 12+, a youth-led drama workshop and games run by our young people. Last but not least, we’re bringing back the hugely popular graffiti workshops run

by Danielle from Tuff Cookie, a local, award-winning muralist and artist. HOM: Wow! It sounds like a varied, genuinely engaging mix of activities. How did you go about choosing events that local kids and teens would respond to? EP: All credit must go to our wonderful youth panel who have been planning this for months. Some of them came to last year’s event so they knew what editorial@weekender.co.uk

worked (or didn’t!). They had some really good insights and ideas about what the day should look like. As a team, they decided to go for a varied day to make sure there would be something for everyone. Oh, and food was a big factor in the planning of this event! HOM: Do you often consult a youth panel for the work you do at Tramshed? EP: The youth panel are becoming an www.weekender.co.uk


fAMILY integral part of our planning processes at Tramshed, and we regularly use them as a sounding board for new term-time programmes and other activities they’d like to see in their local community. We’ll be looking more at youth social action in the coming months thanks to our partnership project with Trinity Laban, Lewisham Youth Theatre, Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), and METRO Charity for My London. HOM: How do people get involved? Do they need to sign up in advance or can they turn up on the day? EP: It’s a drop-in kind of day. I would recommend showing up from 12.30pm so that you can book yourself a place on your chosen workshops, as sessions can fill up pretty quickly! HOM: Once the workshops are complete, you mentioned the day culminates in a performance. What can we expect from that? EP: The youth music showcase is being supported by the lovely team at hip hop theatre troop Breakin’ Convention and will feature local young people from our In2Music programme that runs during term time. It’ll give young emerging talent a platform to show off their singing, rapping, spoken word pieces, instrumental skills and more. We’re encouraging audiences of any age to come and watch. HOM: Lastly, what do you hope those who get involved take away from the experience? EP: The day is all about fun, trying something new and bringing people closer together. All of the activities are open to all young people and we want everyone to feel included. We also hope that by doing an event like this, young people will feel more welcome in spaces such as Greenwich Park. As for the music showcase, I hope it encourages more people to go to live events like this and support young emerging artists. You never know – the next time you see them performing it might be in front of thousands of screaming fans at Wembley!

Strut your stuff: an inclusive, DIY fashion show in Deptford

Ditch fast fashion and champion individuality, such are the rallying cries of the Staying Out DIY Fashion Show. Organised by Staying Out, a LGBTQI+ focused collective operating in south-east London, the show is taking place on Saturday August 13 at Deptford’s performance space-cum-adventure playground, Climate Home. A range of community groups and emerging designers are taking part, and there’s an open invitation for audiences to get involved on the day too. Holly O’Mahony speaks to Jess Wear andKate Price of Staying Out to find out more about the event and how to take part… Holly O’Mahony: How did Staying Out’s DIY Fashion Show come about? And, how does it fit with the Albany’s on-going Climate Home series? Jess Wear: As a south-east London-based organisation motivated by the lack of LGBTQIA+ spaces, we put together a bid and were awarded funding through the Creative Change Fund given to Lewisham as the London Borough of Culture 2022. A Staying Out representative who was also working on Climate Home put us in touch with the Albany. It felt like a natural fit and we were super excited to stage an outdoor event in an adventure playground, a new space designed and built by young people with the climate emergency as its focus. HOM: Why did you decide to make your event a do-it-yourself fashion show, with Lewisham-based locals showing off their designs? JW: We organised the DIY Wild’s Rents Fashion Show in 2019, which the pictures

on this page are from, and it was so exciting to see people’s creations on a catwalk we designed and built, modelled by anyone who wanted to. We were really keen to extend these opportunities beyond our network and this is our aim for the event at Climate Home in Lewisham. HOM: It sounds very democratic, opening up the opportunity to design and exhibit to anyone with an interest… JW: ‘DIY’ is always a major influence on Staying Out events. We want to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved and create their own fashion. Styling and making fashion in a sustainable way is a key part of this event and we are encouraging people to share their own fashion projects, sometimes made in isolation at home. When it comes to fashion anything goes! HOM: So it’s very much a community event, but what about local emerging designers. Are you offering them a www.weekender.co.uk

in every sense. Clothing is something that everyone has in common, yet it is very personal and depends on each of our situations and also social histories. We wanted to create a space to celebrate this, where people felt welcome to put together creations and try things out. The fashion industry is typically an exclusive world and we want to reclaim designing clothes and showing them on a catwalk as something anyone can do.

platform to showcase their designs too? Kate Price: There will be space on the runway for everyone! We are showing fashion collections by community groups, but we’ll also run an open call catwalk for parts of the event. We want to see creations from people who have studied and work in fashion as well as those who have never made clothing before. We are also looking for models of all ages and sizes to volunteer at the event – get in touch if you want to be involved.

HOM: You’re also inviting audience members to get involved on the day and there’s a styling station with the resources, free of charge, to help them do this. What sort of materials will be available?

HOM: You’ve got three community collections as part of the show. How were they created and what can audiences expect from them? KP: Involving community groups has been the focus from the get-go and has helped shape the structure of the event. We have invited a range of different groups from Lewisham, and we hope this creates some crossover with people who live and work locally. We are excited to bring together the elders’ group Meet Me at the Albany with young people and representatives of METRO Charity, who support LGBTQIA+ people of all-ages across the South East. We can’t wait to see each group’s creations. Fashion graduate Cleo Thompson, the designer in residence, has also created a collection with the young people who use the adventure playground at Climate Home. HOM: Inclusivity is a big part of your fashion show. Can you say more about this? JW: Staying Out wanted to organise an intergenerational event where anyone can be involved in a space that felt inclusive editorial@weekender.co.uk

KP: The styling station will include fabrics, clothing, make-up and mirrors to make adjustments and add finishing touches to your look on the day. There will also be someone on hand to help talk through styling ideas. HOM: If the fashion show could shed light, or change people’s perspectives, on one thing, what would you hope it would be?

news from charlton athletic community trust

‘Since joining the Advanced Centre, I’ve seen growth in his character’ – Enrik joins the Charlton Family Enrik has become the latest young person to benefit from the CACT pathway into the Charlton Athletic Football Club Academy. Whilst attending one of CACT’s Talent ID events towards the end of 2020/21 season, Enrik impressed the coaches and scouts with his performances during the games and was offered the opportunity to join CACT’s Advanced Centre for regular training sessions to develop his skills. The Advanced Centre offers talented players from within their community programmes an opportunity to train each week. He has been training with the Advanced Centre for just over a year developing his football skills in a competitive environment. In December 2021, Enrik moved up to train with the Academy and was placed on an 8-week trial. He very quickly adapted to the Academy environment amongst the U11s. Enrik officially signed as an Academy player in May. Bradley Marshall, CACT’s Senior Football & Sports Development Officer, said: “Enrik impressed and stood out from the moment we first saw him playing, he has natural ability in all areas of the game. The advanced centre group played the academy group whilst he was on trial and he was very much in his element and you can see he adapted to academy football very editorial@weekender.co.uk

quickly. We wish him every success and hope he continues to develop.” Upon signing for the Academy, Enrik said: “When I was at the Advanced Centre I felt really nervous and left out but I did believe that I could make it to the Academy and so I tried my hardest and pushed myself to the limit which led to this optimistic result. As I played in the Academy, I saw many new faces but soon I got used to the intensity and tactics and the new faces turned into friends and talents.”

Enrik is the latest to enjoy pathways to Charlton Athletic’s Academy

Holiday courses are running in Greenwich throughout the summer

Artur, Enrik’s Dad, said: “Since joining the Advanced Centre, I’ve seen growth in his character and it has helped in building his confidence and skills, whilst making Enrik less stressed during the game. “We as parents always believed that Enrik could do it and this result gave us exactly what we were expecting for him. Looking at the training at the Advanced Centre that was good quality for the kids and the coaches work that they work with, we believe that Enrik will do it!” Join CACT for six week of football fun this summer with holiday courses running across Greenwich, Bexley and Kent.

History

Cow gum and the lonesome chemicals

Mary Mills

This article is dedicated to all those office juniors of 30 years or so ago who when sitting innocently at work would be handed a tin – ‘sniff this’ the senior person handing it to them would say. So they would sniff it and be sent reeling across the room. Cow Gum - I wouldn’t be surprised if cow gum was registered as some sort of workplace hazard which you needed to be protected from – like site boots, or something. There were many who were fans of its fumes but also of the way that you could make the stuff up into a little ball and play with it for weeks and weeks as a sort of stress reliever. 10 August 10 2022

I said last week that before I finished I ought to write about some of the Deptford Creekside industries which I had missed on my way up and down Creekside. So this is one of them and it’s the story of a Deptford boy who went off somewhere lonesome and made his fortune somewhere other than Deptford. Peter Cow was born in what is now Albury Street, Deptford in 1815. He was the son of a John Cow who said to have been a master artificer at Woolwich Dockyard. He was eventually yard foreman and author of a book ‘Remarks on Fitting Boats for Ships of War and other Transports.’ Peter was apprenticed to a linen draper in Chelsea and went on to work for a number of West End drapers. He opened his own shop

in Bishopsgate in 1842 selling lace and baby clothes. Strangely he became a member of the Loriners Company - whose members are supposed to be people connected with the manufacture of various bits of harness and so on for horses. He eventually moved to the shop of Macintosh company in Cheapside, leaving the Bishopsgate shop to be managed by his sister Katherine. Although Charles McIntosh was still alive in the 1840s I suspect that the word ‘Macintosh’ was by then just a trade name. Briefly, Charles Mackintosh was a Scottish chemist who had developed a way of processing natural caoutchouc with naphtha to enable use in a wide range of applications. He also had links within the gas industry and with European companies, in particular Michelin. I’m being a editorial@weekender.co.uk

bit hesitant here because I don’t want to write a long essay on him and I’m aware that popularly he is supposed to have invented the ‘Mackintosh’. I’m also aware that his use of naphtha was paralleled in London by Thomas Hancock and that they had come to some sort of agreement about sales and the naming of products. Hancock - who I can’t see mentioned anywhere in the story of Peter Cow - had produced a very wide range of clothing and all sorts appliances using his technique for processing rubber. Peter Cow seems to have taken over Mackintosh’s Cheapside shop and eventually in 1851, as P.B.Cow Rubber Manufacturer, opened a factory on Deptford Creek. I am not sure exactly where this factory was - which is why I’ve been a bit hesitant about writing all this up. His business is described www.weekender.co.uk


History

I am afraid was in Streatham. In Streatham Peter Cow was involved in the Lonesome Chemical Works. Unsurprisingly there is actually a part of Streatham which is called ‘Lonesome’. It’s some distance down Greyhound Lane as it runs from to Mitcham from the A23. The Lonesome Chemical Works made and sold a wide range of chemicals – coal tars, sulphur and ‘chemicals for pyrotechnical purposes. They also produced rubberised cloth during the Crimean War for waterproof clothing and groundsheets.

in an advertisement as having a frontage on Deptford Creek and a lot of ‘substantial brick built warehouses with four floors’, and folding gates into the works from Copperas Lane. Also it was a few minutes’ walk from Deptford Railway Station. There were a lot of wharves which could be described as ‘a few minutes’ walk from Deptford Railway Station’ - some of them possibly in Greenwich. He moved to live in Deptford with his wife and young family to a house which I think was on the site of the old Burton’s shop in Lewisham Way. While he was at Deptford he is said to have specialised in making editorial@weekender.co.uk

‘waterproof tweed’. I’m not sure what this is. Some accounts of ‘tweed’ say that it is waterproof anyway without further treatment. The clientele for weather proof tweed today is made up of the upmarket shooting and hunting fraternity – as I guess it was then, I suspect that what he was making was using tweed and putting a rubberised backing on it. P.B.Cow actually won a prize for this product at the 1851 Great Exhibition. I’m going to have to admit that he was in Deptford for only five years but I think this is such an interesting story about the use of rubberised fabrics that I tell you a bit more about him and his factories –which www.weekender.co.uk

P.B. Cow moved their entire production to a site in Streatham on the A23 and was to stay there for over 100 years - managed by a succession of sons, and grandsons of Peter Cow. The site was bought up by Sainsbury’s in the 1980s and is now the site of a large store. If you don’t know Streatham I would recommend going to this shop (to have a look at it and the area – I’m not advertising here for groceries). It is on the south, the Croydon, side of Streatham . Round the back and used as a coffee shop in the Sainsbury complex is an 18th-century silk mill. I originally learnt about P.B.Cow because there was a big campaign to save the mill in which GLIAS was involved. Also to see nearby - if you go down

Greyhound Lane and find Connors Road there are some fabulous waterworks buildings (and if Mr. 853 Blogger reads this it was his photographs that made me go and find that waterworks). Lonesome itself is further down Greyhound Lane and the site of the chemical works is now, inevitably, all housing. But there is still a Lonesome Primary School. Very close to the Sainsbury’s on the A23 is what was the Beehive Coffee Tavern built in 1870 for Peter Cow, who, as a keen temperance advocate ,was happy to commission posh architect Ernest George to design it. Peter Cow died in 1889 of heart failure - but his sons were already running the business by then. He was remained interested in Deptford. He was on the building committee for St.James Hatcham and contributed to other ecclesiastical charities locally. P,B .Cow made lots and lots of different items using rubber in various forms. In the 1940s they were particularly famous for lilos – inflatable waterproof beds. In the Second World War they are said to have made imitation tanks out of rubber to fool the enemy and were the world’s largest manufacturer of airsea rescue equipment – ‘Mae Wests’ – and rubber dinghies. Otherwise it was toothbrushes, hot water bottles, and anything else you can think of.

And of course that wonderful product – Cow Gum. It is however interesting that none of the papers I have found about P.B.Cow mention it. I don’t know who developed it for them and when they started selling it. Perhaps they were embarrassed by its later reputation. It is rubber cement, made from elastic polymers. There are endless websites from people who remember it and say how much they loved it. It’s frequently described as part of the basic kit of any graphic designer or layout artist before computers took over – a ruler, a pen, some scissors and your Cow Gum and you were away! There are also, I’m afraid, descriptions of some of the other activities it was used for in the afternoons, back at work from the pub. And you could always fiddle with a lump of it if you were bored. It’s one of the reasons I wrote this piece – and I accept most of it isn’t about Deptford – but – come on! Cow Gum – I mean, it was a product to love. There are numerous weh sites and Facebook pages about the Cow works in Streatham. Nearer home are two articles about the wider family, Freda D. Neale in Lewisham History Journal Nos 18 & 21. I note that the article on the Cow family – in which Peter Cow is only briefly mentioned – has as its frontispiece a photo of a tin of Cow Gum.
