‘PRIDE AND JOY’ MINIBUS FOR KIDS’ RUGBY CLUB STOLEN By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK TIGERS, the first junior inner city rugby club in the country, has been left heartbroken after its “pride and joy” minibus was stolen.

Southwark Tigers Rugby Club chairman Vernon Neve-Dunn parked the minibus outside his home in Croydon on Monday, but awoke the next morning to find it had

disappeared. Many members of the club, which is based in Burgess Park, are from the Aylesbury Estate. The bus is also shared by other youth and community groups in the borough. He is now appealing for anyone who has seen the white minibus, which has Southwark Tigers Rugby Club written along the side, to come forward, describing the vehicle as ‘crucial’to the club.

Dame Tessa Jowell a life well lived

E

VEN THOUGH her struggle with brain cancer was well-known, the news of the death of Dame Tessa Jowell on Sunday still came as a shock.

Ever bright, younger than her years, fizzing with energy - it didn’t seem possible that this irrepressible politician had passed away. But even her death created change - the government announcing the doubling of funding into brain cancer research. Whilst applauding it, Tessa would probably also have asked why it took her death to trigger such an investment. For fifteen years she championed causes across her Dulwich & West Norwood constituency, whilst striving to use her power in the Labour government to make changes that would effect not just her own constituents but people throughout the country. Even when they proved controversial, as with the PFI scheme for Dulwich Hospital, she argued the case passionately. Sure Start, with its emphasis on helping young people, was a major achievement. It was Dame Tessa who convinced Tony Blair to fight for the London Olympics, and many felt she would have made an excellent London Mayor, had her nomination been successful. In her moving speech to the House of Lords last year, where she spoke about brain cancer, she concluded: “In the end, what gives a life meaning is not only how it is lived, but how it draws to a close”. A beautiful way to look at approaching death - and how fully she imbued her life with meaning, right up until the very end.

Canada Water plans the way forward?

T

HE LONG-AWAITED and much debated plans for 53-acres of land in Canada Water to be regenerated have finally been submitted to the council and it would appear that a lot has been learnt in the four years of consultation.

On the surface there is great deal less controversy surrounding this masterplan compared to historic large projects like the regeneration of the North Peckham Estate in the 1990s and more recently the Heygate Estate. The council claims that developers British Land have succeed in delivering a masterplan local people want to see.And after striking a deal with them in March this year for a social regeneration charter agreed by the cabinet at the town hall – they believe that they will get a lot more from this project, to invest back into the borough as a whole. They say the agreement will mean that the council will increase its land holdings and take 20 per cent ownership of the whole development, including land not currently in the council’s freehold ownership. Given the housing crisis and the newly reelected administration’s on-going pledge to build 10,000 new council homes in 30 years, this charter gives them the first option to acquire the new social rented homes as council homes. In the plans submitted, the first three plots should deliver 270 homes, 35 per cent of these would be affordable housing, split 70 per cent at social rents and 30 per cent at intermediate rent. What the rates for intermediate rent will be has yet to be decided. On the whole though it appears a good deal has been struck for the council and so the people of Southwark and could be used as an example for more regeneration projects planned for the future.

Prince William opens station after £1billion revamp

THE DUKE of Cambridge officially opened London Bridge station following a £1billion revamp last week.

Prince William travelled by train to the railway station, where he was welcomed by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling and Network Rail chief executive Mark Carne yesterday, Wednesday. He then met groups of apprentices, project leaders and staff involved in the five-year transformation which has almost doubled passenger capacity and is designed to enable more and faster connections for passengers. Work has included a major track upgrade, a new rail underpass on the approach to the station, and platform widenings and extensions meaning 30 per cent more trains can use the station than before. For the first time in over 150 years, passengers at London Bridge – which was built in the 19th century as two separate stations – are able to reach all fifteen platforms from one concourse. The fifteen new platforms were completely rebuilt and the number of ‘through’ platforms has increased from six to nine during the reconstruction. London Bridge remained open to passengers throughout the works but Wednesday’s ceremony marked the completion of the project. Minor finishing works are still taking place at the Tooley Street entrance but these are expected to be completed by June.

Kids’ rugby club’s ‘pride and joy’ minibus stolen

Help, we have a squirrel in our loo! HERNE HILL

SOUTHWARK TIGERS, the first junior inner city rugby club in the country, has been left heartbroken after its “pride and joy” minibus was stolen.

Southwark Tigers Rugby Club chairman Vernon Neve-Dunn parked the minibus outside his home in Croydon on Monday, but awoke the next morning to find it had disappeared. The bus is also shared by other youth and community groups in the borough. He said there were no signs of broken glass in the quiet suburban road where the minibus, which has ‘Southwark Tigers Rugby Club’ and ‘Adam Cole Foundation’ printed on the side, had been. Speaking to the News, the 58-year-old appealed for anyone with information to get in touch as the bus is “crucial” to the club. “I was heartbroken,” he said. “I thought ‘I don’t believe it, who’s done that’ because it’s our pride and joy. “We are a small charity and we were given the minibus new by the Adam Cole Foundation, which is also a small charity, about ten years ago when it cost about £27,000. “We use it every week because most of our kids come off the Aylesbury Estate

and places like that since we are based in Burgess Park and because we play rugby we head out of London, so it’s crucial. “These kids, some of them don’t know the River Thames. “I bumped into a few kids in Burgess Park and they said ‘they’ve stolen the minibus!’ and they were heartbroken too and it’s a big part to them because there’s nothing more exciting than getting into the minibus and driving out of London. “Now that the season is finished we lend it to the CK BMX club and the cricket club and things like that to try and make it as useful for the community as well.” Vernon said the club, which has eight junior teams, adult members, and a women’s and girls’ section, would not start playing again until September but that they would need to “seriously look at” how to transport their young members. “Sometimes we are trying to transport 60 kids on a Sunday morning and the

minibus is only one part of that,” he said. “It’s also the base of the club because we don’t really have a base. “I’d urge people to just keep your eyes open and any information will be really helpful.” The minibus is described as a white Ford Transit in good condition with ‘Southwark Tigers Rugby Club’ and ‘Adam Cole Foundation’ printed on the side. The registration number is FG59 WCA. A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at approximately 07.53am on May 15 to reports of a theft of a van on South Way, Croydon. “It is believed the vehicle was stolen from outside a residential address overnight. Work continues to locate the vehicle and those responsible for the theft. Enquiries continue. No arrests have been made. “Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.”

Trainee paramedic loses two years of work as rucksack stolen

Appeal for portfolio to be returned so he can finish course By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A TRAINEE paramedic is appealing for his stolen rucksack with two years’ worth of work inside to be returned so he can finish his course.

Sylvester Kowalczyk, 42, left the black Gap rucksack inside his car parked outside of The Ship and Whale pub, in Rotherhithe, after finishing a night shift at about 3am on Saturday. But he was woken by his wife Basha, who owns the pub, after someone smashed the rear left window and ran off with the bag at about 11.30am. Sylvester is currently an ambulance technician with London Ambulance Service and had been on track to finish his training to become a paramedic at the end of the year - but this could all be put on hold unless he finds the missing coursework. Speaking to the News, his wife Basha, 38, said the couple were holding out hope that it would be found.

“It really upset him obviously,” said the mother-of-one, who has owned the Ship and Whale for thirteen years. “His paramedic portfolio from the last two years was stolen so all the jobs he was doing were signed by other paramedics and it’s really important because if he doesn’t find it he won’t be able to finish his course. “There wasn’t a wallet inside or any phones so it was not important to [the person who took it] – it was just this A4-

size folder with his work in. “I’m worried if [the person who stole it] ran off towards the riverside [they] might have dropped the rucksack in the river but we are still hoping we find it.” “I always think if you do good things for someone good things come back so I’m still hoping someone is going to find it.” The folder is described as a white A4 folder with ‘ORMS’ printed on it. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the rucksack is asked to contact The Ship and Whale on 020 7237 7072 or via Twitter @ShipandWhale A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Police were called on Saturday, May 12, at around 11.05am to Odessa Street, SE16, to a report of a man seen breaking into a car. “Officers attended and the suspect had made off prior to their arrival. “It was established that a bag was taken from the vehicle by the suspect.” There have been no arrests and police continue to investigate.

A DISTRESSED squirrel had to be rescued from a toilet in a student flat this weekend after becoming stuck.

RSPCA Animal Collection Officer Kirstie Gillard was called on Sunday, May 13, by worried students from a house share, who had found the squirrel trapped in their loo. Ms Gillard used a mop handle to lift the animal to safety, before it was cleaned off, dried in a nice warm towel and released. She told the News: “Fortunately the squirrel wasn’t injured at all and I could release him back into the wild where he belongs. “I think he must have come into this house through the roof and slipped into the toilet. “It was certainly one of the most unusual rescues I’ve ever carried out I did rescue a bat stuck in the plughole of a sink last year, but I think this one

takes the crown! “I’m sure it’s one the squirrel ‘walnut’ forget in a hurry.” Other bizarre calls taken by the RSPCA across the country include a gull which fell into a vat of cold Tandoori curry, turning him bright orange, a sheep with a traffic cone stuck on her head, a Lhasa Apso dog trapped in an electric reclining chair, and a corn snake inside the head of a vacuum cleaner.

Bus driver sprayed with substance A BUS driver was sprayed with an unknown substance at Elephant and Castle on Sunday.

The London Met confirmed officers were called at around 1.40 pm on Sunday, May 13, after a bus driver was sprayed with a substance, near to Elephant and Castle station. The London Ambulance Service and

Fire Brigade also attended the scene. The driver does not appear to have been injured, but has been taken to hospital as a precaution. Subsequent tests found that the substance was “not noxious”. Southwark officers are investigating the incident as a common assault and although there have been no arrests at this stage, enquiries are continuing.

‘Kind, caring, courageous’ - Tributes paid TESSA JOWELL

Respects paid locally and across country for former Dulwich and West Norwood MP, who lost battle against brain cancer aged 70 By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

THE COUNCIL’S flags flew at half-mast as a mark of respect this week for former Dulwich and West Norwood MP Dame Tessa Jowell, following her death at the age of 70 from brain cancer.

Books of condolence have also been opened in both Southwark’s and Lambeth’s town halls in memory of the former Labour cabinet minister, whose constituency straddled both boroughs. Tributes have poured in for Dame Tessa, who died peacefully at her home surrounded by family on Saturday after suffering a brain haemorrhage and falling into a coma on Friday. Dame Tessa dedicated herself to campaigning for more cancer treatments to be available on the NHS after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumour in May 2017. The former MP, who was muchrespected and well-liked across the political divide, received a standing ovation in the House of Lords in January after delivering a moving speech about her campaign and her battle with the illness. In a bittersweet announcement on Monday, Number 10 revealed it would double government funding for brain cancer research to £40million and roll out gold standard tumour diagnosis tests across all NHS hospitals in tribute to Dame Tessa. Prime minister Theresa May and the opposition led tributes to the former Labour MP, whose achievements included helping to secure the 2012 London Olympics as culture secretary, and setting up the Sure Start programme to support families in the early years of their children’s development as public health minister. Generous tributes were made locally, with Southwark Council leader Peter John saying Dame Tessa left “a void in our hearts but a great legacy of achievement”. After news of Dame Tessa’s death broke, he tweeted: “A genuinely sad

day – we have lost the optimism, warmth, practical politics, care, determination, friendship, inspiration, smile, laughter, and love that Tessa Jowell represented.” Harriet Harman, MP for Camberwell and Peckham, paid tribute to her former constituency neighbour of 23 years. The pair first met in the early 1980s when Dame Tessa was a councillor in Camden and chair of their social services committee. “We were both young mothers determined to do the best for our children at the same time as getting Labour into government and changing the world for the better,” said Ms Harman. “From then on, until her death, we worked closely together. “’The personal is political’ – that old Women’s Movement saying – was what Tessa was all about.

“Her focus on her children and stepchildren was the impetus for her putting parenting support at the heart of the Labour Government’s Sure Start Children’s Centres. “Her way of judging eldercare services when she worked in Birmingham social services was simple: ‘either it’s good enough for my mother or it’s not good enough for anyone’. “She didn’t follow the political rules of the day; she followed her personal instinct. “But she was no softie – she was clever and tough. “She was a champion of the Dulwich and West Norwood she represented. “People will always remember her in Southwark but, also, when people remember the big figures in Labour 1997-2010 Tessa will be one of them.” Helen Hayes MP, who succeeded Dame Tessa in Dulwich and West

Norwood in 2015, tweeted: “So very sad at the passing of my friend & predecessor Tessa Jowell who served Dulwich & West Norwood for 23 years. “Tessa leaves huge legacy both locally & nationally & bravely used her brain tumour diagnosis to keep making a difference for others until the very end. Much missed x.” Former Bermondsey and Old Southwark MP of 32 years Sir Simon Hughes tweeted: “RIP Tessa. It was a pleasure & privilege to work with you as fellow Southwark MP for many years. “Tessa – you were lovely, brave, caring, principled, talented and determined. “Your colleagues, city and country thank you. And to your family love and thanks.” Link Age Southwark director Ruth Driscoll said Dame Tessa would be

fondly remembered by the charity. “Tessa Jowell is so fondly remembered by everyone @LASwark for the compassion and commitment she gave to our charity’s work supporting older people in Southwark over many years,” she tweeted. “May she rest in peace.” Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust tweeted: “We’re very sad to hear about the passing of @TessaJowell “Our thoughts go out to her family and friends. A kind, caring and courageous servant to the Dulwich community and a supporter of our club over the years @DulwichHamletFC who will be sorely missed.” Dame Tessa was elected in Southwark in 1992 – first as MP for Dulwich, and then for Dulwich and West Norwood – holding the seat until she stepped down in 2015.

service.” Former prime minister Tony Blair, in whose cabinet Dame Tessa served as culture secretary, said she would be remembered for being “the most wise of counsellors, the most loyal and supportive of colleagues, and the best of friends”. “There was no one like Tessa and no one better; I will miss her more than I can say,” he said. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was “devastating to hear the news” of Dame Tessa’s death, and that her “strength in raising awareness of her illness and fighting for better treatment for others inspired us all”. Sir Vince Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrats, added that “she behaved with such great dignity and her bravery has been an inspiration to so many”. Former Labour director of communications Alastair Campbell told The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday that Dame Tessa was “one of the kindest, most compassionate, empathetic people I’ve ever known”. “She was completely dedicated to other people and politicians get such a bad rap from so many people but Dame Tessa was not just the best in politics, she was the best of humanity,” he said. “Yesterday [Saturday] when we knew what was happening and phoning a few people to let them know what was going on – I’ll spare his blushes – but there was a Tory MP I spoke to who burst into tears. “I think she just had this capacity to touch everybody she met and I can’t quite believe she’s gone. “I just remember her as a positive life force who never stopped smiling and never stopped being dedicated and motivated by other people.” Lord Sebastian Coe, president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and former British Olympic Association chairman, the London 2012 Olympics would not have happened without Dame Tessa. “Tessa was not just a close friend, she was a life enhancer,” he said. “Her contribution to the Olympic and Paralympic Games is easily defined – without Tessa there would have been no London 2012, and without Tessa they would not have been the success they were.” Dame Tessa died peacefully at her family home near Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire shortly after 10pm on Saturday, with her husband David at her side, as well as their children Jessie and Matthew, their husband and wife, and David’s children from his first marriage.

THE GREATEST Showman, Beauty and the Beast and La La Land have all been announced as part of the free cinema line-up of an outdoor festival by the Thames.

Movies such as Moana, Guardians of the Galaxy and The BFG have also been announced as part of the Summer by the River festival, being held in London Bridge City from June to September.

GREAT-GRANDMOTHER TOLD TO PAY OUT AFTER FAMILY PLOT IS SMASHED BERMONDSEY

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A GREAT-GRANDMOTHER was reduced to tears after finding part of her parents’ and brother’s grave in pieces.

Kate Southion (pictured) found the granite headstone on which her relatives’ names are inscribed had been knocked over and part of the kerbstone surrounding the grave had been broken when she visited Camberwell New Cemetery with her granddaughter. The 72-year-old, from Bermondsey, said she was “devastated” when she made the discovery and that she felt the cemetery should take more responsibility. “I went down there and something had run over the grave and smashed all the front of it and knocked it sideways,” she said. “I was just absolutely devastated; my granddaughter and I sat there crying. “Whatever has hit it isn’t a car – the

kerbstone would have gone under a car. “There’s a big black granite stone but my granddaughter and I couldn’t lift it, it was so heavy. “I don’t think it’s been vandalised.” Mrs Southion’s mother, who died 25 years ago, and father, who died fifteen years ago, are both buried at the family plot, while her younger brother, who died of a brain haemorrhage at the of 26, had his ashes scattered there in 1984. “I lost my other brother last March on my birthday and my husband of 52 years died in September, so everything has sort of hit me at once,” she said. Mrs Southion said she was told by a cemetery worker that it was not the cemetery’s responsibility to repair the damage and that she should have had the grave insured. “They reckon there’s nothing they can do about it,” she said. “They said we should have had it insured but shouldn’t we be made aware of that when we buy the plot and be advised to take out insurance? Someone needs to tell you what to do.

“I can’t leave it like that.” “It’s going to cost well in the hundreds to fix – but there’s no way I want to go to my maker knowing it’s not been done.” Southwark Council leader Peter John said: “I am really sorry to hear that this grave has been damaged by someone or something and for the distress this has caused Kate and her family. “The cemetery is a public space that is open to cars and other vehicles and that is why we advise families to ensure memorials are covered by insurance – unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for damage that is caused by third parties. “But I will ask officers to help find the most cost-effective way of repairing this memorial.”

‘Congestion’ fear over Silvertown Tunnel By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

THE DECISION to approve plans for a twin-road tunnel beneath the River Thames has come under fire from politicians, who fear it will increase congestion and pollution in Rotherhithe.

The Department for Transport has given TfL the green light to push ahead with Silvertown Tunnel – a twin-bore road tunnel linking the Royal Docks north of the river with the Greenwich Peninsula to ease congestion in Blackwall Tunnel. Deputy council leader and Rotherhithe ward councillor Stephanie Cryan told the News: “I’m not against the tunnel because I can see the need for it, but my worry is it’s going to be a toll tunnel as well as Blackwall, whereas Rotherhithe tunnel will be free. “With the Cycle Superhighway 4 stuff happening at the same time, my worry is it will increase congestion in my ward and the impact that will have on air quality. “I think they have looked at this in isolation and my worries and frustration is that TfL seem to ignore the traffic in Jamaica Road and aren’t looking for solutions for it. “If they are going to toll the other two tunnels why are they not doing that for Rotherhithe – why are we an anomaly

because it will draw more people down towards a road that is already gridlocked.” Cllr Cryan said she and fellow ward councillors Kath Whittam and Bill Williams planned to write to new London deputy mayor for transport Heidi Alexander to request a meeting. Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, said permission to build the tunnel did not mean the Mayor of London was obliged to go ahead with the project. “The Mayor, the new Deputy Mayor for Transport and TfL need to think again,” she said. A TfL spokesperson said: “While some drivers might choose to use another crossing to avoid the charge at the Blackwall and Silvertown Tunnels, others could be expected to divert to the Blackwall or Silvertown Tunnel from other crossings, even with charging in place. This is because for many journeys it would be much quicker to cross the river via the Blackwall or Silvertown Tunnels than at other east London river crossings such as the Rotherhithe Tunnel or Woolwich Ferry. "Our modelling suggests that changes in the overall balance of users of the Blackwall/Silvertown tunnels and other local crossings will be negligible and it is unlikely that they would lead to any particularly noticeable increase in traffic levels or delays. ”

‘She looks a million dollars’ Gladys celebrates her century

PECKHAM

Friends praise ‘inspiration’ who was born in 1918 By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

A PECKHAM woman celebrated her 100th birthday this month with the Mayor of Southwark making a special appearance.

Gladys Williams was born on May 4, 1918, on Meeting House Lane in Peckham, during World War One, and is now one of an estimated 15,000 centenarians living in the UK. At her birthday party in Darwin Court, Gladys reminisced about her career working as an insurance clerk for many years, and her much-missed husband Frank, with whom she lived on Naylor Road in Peckham. Gladys is still active and can walk unaided, but her sight is much diminished. She enjoys attending a blind social club and going on outings with volunteers.

Cllr Charlie Smith, Mayor of Southwark, said: “One of the loveliest things about being Mayor is that I get the opportunity to meet such wonderful older people like Gladys. I’m delighted to have been invited to her 100th birthday party at Darwin Court to wish her a happy birthday, not just on behalf of myself, but on behalf of all residents in Southwark. I’m very happy for Gladys and for the Peabody staff who organised such a terrific event.” Gladys’ friend and fellow resident Sheila Millward said “Gladys has always been an inspiration to me. “I don’t think she swims so much now as unfortunately her sight has almost gone, but I remember seeing her go up and down the pool every day. “She is still amazingly active and I’m so happy there’s this celebration for her. She looks a million dollars.” Another friend Kathy McDougall, added: “Gladys and I both moved in to Darwin Court when it opened in 2003. “We always used to go on do’s together, dancing and whatnot. “I’ve genuinely never heard her complain about anything in all the years I’ve known her.

“She is a lovely, wonderful person and it’s a privilege to know her.” Darwin Court is a Peabody-owned supported housing block. Claire Woodcock, Older Person’s

Housing & Support Manager at Peabody, said: “It really was a pleasure to organise and host a 100th birthday party for Gladys. “We recognise it is such a milestone to reach this age, and Gladys continues to set

an example to us all – still fit, healthy and glowing! I hope that we can host many more ‘100 year’ parties for our residents and to give something back to a generation who long deserve this recognition.”

‘I’m walking 50km in 1 night for charity’ BERMONDSEY

Bermondsey man and friends to take on challenge By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A BERMONDSEY “extreme challenge junkie” will walk 50km in just one night in aid of a cancer charity.

Dimbleby Cancer Care trustee Kyle Taylor, 33, is gearing up to take on the charity’s #Walk50 challenge next month which will see participants pass through ten London boroughs overnight. Kyle and his friends – Astrid Decrop, Lianne Underwood, Robert Muil, Julian Baudinet, Carina Jurs, Tom Salvat, Rosie Shimmel, Tim Coates and Courtenay Shepherd – are hoping to raise £3,000 through the feat. Speaking ahead of the event on June 15, Kyle said: “I’ve summited Mount Kilimanjaro twice, trekked to Everest Base Camp, swum an open water marathon in the English Channel and run the London Marathon – all for cancer causes. “As a trustee of the charity I wanted to do something for it as almost everyone, including myself, has in

Chelsea, Westminster, City of London, Greenwich, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth. This year the challenge has grown to include three options for people wanting to take part. The 12km family walk, a 25km mid-distance walk and the full 50km walk. All walkers will start the challenge at St Thomas’ Hospital at Westminster Bridge from 7pm on June 15 and head west.

It’s fostering fortnight, from 14th – 27th May, and your help is needed. Lambeth Council is looking for foster carers to support children from Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia and Afghanistan. Foster carers are special people who offer homes to children who can no longer live with their birth families. They currently need foster carers who can share common factors with children-seeking -asylum.

Many of these children have arrived in the uk alone and have had a traumatic experience, so need loving, safe and secure homes to help them settle and do things normal children enjoy, like going to school, playing sports and making friends. To help them feel more settled and secure, Lambeth are looking for people who come from the same country or share similar cultural and religious backgrounds to these children and young people, to come forward and become foster parents. In return, Lambeth will provide you with specialist training, support from a skilled team, support from experienced foster carers and excellent fostering allowances (payment).

PLANS FOR a huge 53-acre regeneration of Canada Water – which include a new high street, town centre and leisure centre – have been submitted to the council after four years of consultation.

British Land has submitted an outline planning application for its Canada Water Masterplan, which would deliver up to 3,000 homes as well as workspace and retail, leisure, entertainment and community space if given the go ahead. The outline submission also includes detailed plans for the project’s first three buildings, which would be built on Surrey Quays shopping centre’s current overflow car parks between Deal Porters Way and Canada Water Dock, as well as the empty site at Roberts Close. The first three plots would deliver 270 homes - 35 per cent of these would be affordable housing, split 70 per cent at social rents and 30 per cent at intermediate rent. A spokesperson explained the rate/percentage for these hadn’t yet been decided as they didn’t know the sizes of the units and that the social rents would be down to the council. Also included in the first phase are plans for 285,000 sq ft of workspace, a leisure centre, shops and places to eat and drink. It is thought that the swimming pool will be 25 metres, replacing the current 33 metre pool at Seven Islands, and eight lanes, rather than the current six. Southwark Council struck a deal with British Land giving the local authority the first chance to secure new social-rented homes. Details of an improved wetland habitat in Canada Water Dock, developed with the London Wildlife Trust, are also among the plans, including a crossing to allow the public to interact with nature. The recently-vacated Rotherhithe police station, in Lower Road, forms part of the development, as well as the historic Dock Offices and former Harmsworth Quays Printworks in Surrey Quays Road. The plans include flexibility for the fifteen-acre Printworks site, which once churned out editions of the Daily Mail, Evening Standard, and Metro and is currently being used as a live music venue. The first option is to retain the press hall and bring it back into a range of uses, but demolish the lower-level buildings – the second is to redevelop the entire Printworks site and build a mixed-use commercial and residential development in its place. If given the green light to go ahead by this autumn, building work could begin on the first detailed plots in spring 2019 with a target completion date of 2022.

Details include 3,000 new homes, work and leisure space and a crossing over dock

This would mean the entire masterplan could be built by 2033. Roger Madelin, head of the Canada Water development project at British Land, said the submission of the plans marked “an important milestone”. “Drawing on our experience of creating vibrant, mixed-use places across the capital, this major urban centre at Canada Water will provide an exciting place to live, work and visit, delivering high quality design, active spaces and significant economic and social benefits for the local community,” he said. “We have worked closely with Southwark Council and the local residents of Canada Water to achieve this important

first step, and will continue to work with them to enable a truly cultural and diverse neighbourhood for London.” Southwark Council leader Peter John added: “It is fantastic to see this project moving forward. “British Land have done great work to consult and engage with local people and the resulting masterplan will deliver what local people want to see. “In addition British Land, in conjunction with the council, has committed to a social regeneration charter which will ensure that the lives of existing local residents will be improved by the project which we believe to be a first for a project such as this.”

Brocklesby, who took up running in later life and, at the age of 72, became the oldest British woman to complete an Ironman Triathlon. It currently offers activities at eighteen venues across London where participants have an average age of 67. The charity will use the money to launch new ‘Silver Saturdays’ for retirees, which will include walking football or tag rugby, Silver Cheerleading and pilates. The £5million funding has been shared out among eighteen organisations which will help support people who are regularly active to stay active when major changes happen in their lives.

Sport England’s Taking Part survey revealed there are nearly 15 million people who are regularly active in England – but even people with the strongest habits are at risk of dropping out when they go through a major life change such as a serious injury or illness, having a baby, children starting school, a new job, moving house or retiring. People from lower socio-economic groups, women, people with a limiting disability and those aged 55+ are said to be more prone to drop out. Helping these groups get active is a priority for Sport England and its overall strategy – Towards an Active Nation.

Bereaved parents make stand over rise in crime By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

MOTHERS AGAINST Guns UK’s founder Lucy Cope joined other bereaved parents at a Woolwich Arsenal rally this weekend to stage a mock-funeral, highlighting the devastating consequences of the surge in violent crime across the capital.

Addressing the audience at the screen in Gordon Square, near Woolwich Arsenal station, Ms Cope said: “We need to stand united because if we don’t do it together, nothing is going to change. “The errant youth of today are killing one another, it’s scary. I’ve been in many places, I’ve been in the Bronx and not scared, but in Peckham right about now it’s scary. Why? Because we have an errant youth which has no fear. “The perpetrators have become younger and so have the victims. So what are we gonna do about it? “We need to stand up and make our government stand up. If you don’t want to take the job on Ms May, see you later. “The next one that comes in better take over and do a better job.” Two of Ms Cope’s sons were murdered. In 1998 her son Sean was stabbed in Walworth, and in 2002, her son Damian was shot outside a nightclub in Holborn. After marching with a coffin, provided by undertaker Gary Fuller, Ms Cope gave an impassioned speech telling onlookers: “Don’t wait to have been in our shoes, because it ain’t nice. “Don’t say it can’t happen to you, because if you ain’t got it in your borough it’s coming your way. It’s like a disease. “And we need to have parents accountable for their children, we need a robust police force.”

She also called for frozen assets from criminals to be put back into stopping crime, and said the police and public needed to “stop being scared of racism”, and have an honest conversation about black-on-black gun and knife crime statistics.

Ms Cope told the News she believes the surge in violent youth crime is due to a “lack of facilities for young people there is no youth clubs, nowhere to go. They’re hanging out in what I would call a concrete jungle and there’s only one way to go and that’s into gangs.

Describing herself as “very disappointed” that Sadiq Khan could not attend, she said: “He is not in a strong enough or in a position to deal with the crisis we are now in”, before turning her attention to the Prime Minister , saying: “Theresa May needs

drivers. Last week, exasperated residents took to Twitter after feeling the impact of more engineering works on nearby Bellenden Bridge, with Tweeter Julia Manning saying the combined work had caused “traffic chaos”. On Tuesday, St Giles ward councillor, Ian Wingfield, Tweeted that he had been “inundated with emails about it. I have asked officers to request Network Rail which is responsible for the closure to resolve the traffic problems”. In the latest letter sent to residents, Network Rail confirmed that repairs will be carried out on Camberwell Grove Bridge no later than August 2018. On Friday Southwark Council shared the following statement, from a Network Rail spokesperson, on its website, in

response to residents: "Southwark Council has forwarded a number of complaints to Network Rail over recent days and the following message is designed to respond to those concerns raised with regard to the essential bridge replacement that is taking place on Bellenden Road, which is to replace a life expired bridge to allow the continuation of the train service in this area and to carry out improvement works to the Camberwell Grove bridge to open the bridge to traffic under 3 tonnes. “Firstly, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience and disruption that these improvement works may be causing you. Network Rail and Southwark Council have been working closely together to try and mitigate and

minimise as much disruption as possible, but due to the nature of the works there will regrettably be some disruption. "Ourselves and Southwark Council have to maintain our infrastructure for the safety of the public and to protect train passengers. However, due to limited railway closures to deliver both schemes as efficiently as possible we required the closure of all four railway lines for 72 hours. “The May Spring bank holiday has given us the opportunity to carry out these essential works to both of the bridges. In the early stages of the project, an increase in traffic a certain times of the day is anticipated, however, this was compounded on Tuesday with a broken down vehicle on Peckham Road for a

Residents face further ‘traffic chaos’ as second bridge closes By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

RESIDENTS IN Camberwell and Peckham have faced further ‘traffic chaos’ after engineering works started on Bellenden Bridge, almost two years after Camberwell Grove bridge was closed.

Camberwell Grove Bridge closed to traffic in October 2016 for essential maintenance but over eighteen months later has yet to re-open. As the News reported last November, 73 per cent of locals who responded to a public consultation called for the bridge to reopen, with residents telling the News that traffic had surged in the narrow streets west of Peckham with “almost daily” altercations between

number of hours that reduced the road to a single lane. "Southwark Council and Network Rail have reviewed the signage on the diversion and taken into consideration the feedback from yourselves and have taken the steps to improve the signage where necessary , including placing traffic marshals at Bellenden Road at the junction Holy Grove and Blenheim Grove at the junction of Bellenden Road, Improving the signage at the junction Lyndhurst Way and Peckham Road. During a walkabout on 10 May, traffic was flowing well in the area. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and your kind co-operation during this time. “We will continue to monitor the situation.”

She once lived locally to Guy’s Hospital but moved to Ashford, in Kent, after she retired. Rosa’s funeral was held at St Teresa’s Roman Catholic Church in Ashford on May 11.

TUBE PASSENGERS have been advised to avoid Kennington tube station while essential Northern line maintenance work takes place from May to September.

From Saturday, May 26, Bank branch trains will not call at Kennington Tube station and although the Charing Cross Branch will be stopping, there will be no interchange between the different branches. Engineering work is scheduled to take place until mid-September, and

TfL has advised Kennington commuters to “use local buses, cycle or walk”. Both Northern and Victoria lines are expected to be even busier than usual with passengers facing delays. Elephant and Castle station is expected to be particularly affected. TfL says it is carrying out essential work to build new passageways between the platforms at Kennington station in preparation for the Northern Line extension to Nine Elms. During the engineering work, more trains will be scheduled between Morden and Charing Cross, but the Bank branch service will be reduced.

Historic hall ‘dicovered’ on high street PECKHAM

Campaigners hope hall can be saved by mystery new owner By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

HERITAGE CAMPAIGNERS are hoping a historic hall ‘discovered’ on Peckham High Street can be saved by its new owner, after the building was bought by a mystery buyer at auction.

According to the Peckham Townscape Heritage Initiative, number 43 Peckham High Road was once known as Central Hall, with enough capacity for 1,000 people. The Victorian building was opened on November 11, 1884, by The People’s League, a social and religious mission. Throughout the next century, the building had several lives as a Baptist Hall, a cinema, concertvenue, nightclub and casino before its latest incarnation as a ‘solutions centre’ by ‘Crusaders Ministeries International’. The building was auctioned by Savills agents this month to an unknown buyer but, shortly before being sold, heritage campaigners

gained access and discovered the historic hall was still in existence, and now have called on the new owner to keep the building for public use. Eileen Conn, from Peckham Vision, told the News: “This is not just an attractive part of our heritage with a fascinating history. It is also a

significant asset for the town centre. “It has much potential as a public meeting place for performances, trade fairs and all kinds of things. “We hope that Savills will put the new owners in touch with us so we can discuss the way the building's value can be realised for the new owner and the town centre.

Photos: (c) Peckham Vision

“Peckham Vision has a long successful track record of spotting important town centre potential. “Look for example at the success now of the Bussey Building and Copeland Park, and the Peckham Multi Storey former car park, both once destined for demolition. “These are just two examples of

buildings rescued and recycled by our actions. We hope that 43 Peckham High Street can be added to the list. Savills told the News: “We have passed your enquiry on to the buyer who will be in touch should they wish to comment on the purchase or speak with the local heritage group.”

West Ham fan visits Den in bid to walk 77 miles for young Isla www.southwarknews.co.uk/news

BERMONDSEY

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A WEST Ham supporter has raised more than £4,000 for a young football fan’s cancer treatment by walking 77 miles non-stop overnight - including a visit to rival Millwall’s ground The Den.

Construction site manager Patrick O’Connor, 53, smashed his fundraising target and successfully completed the walk to all of London’s professional football clubs within 29 hours – arriving at West Ham in time for kick off on Sunday. The Hammers fan, from Southendon-Sea, is a family friend of three-year-old Isla Caton who has been diagnosed with rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma. Her family, who live in Stratford, are trying to raise £400,000 to send her overseas for potentially lifesaving treatment not available on the NHS. Speaking to the News after completing the walk, Patrick said the challenge was a “mixed experience”. “Looking back with rose-tinted glasses it was actually enjoyable,” he said. “There were high points and low points; one of the low points was it rained most of Saturday and I was

using Google Maps on my phone which got soaked and started opening podcasts instead so that wasn’t fun. “Through the night it got a bit dodgy at times so that bit wasn’t great either but when I went on the Woolwich ferry the captain obviously said something to the lads and they played Forever Blowing Bubbles which is the signature [West Ham] tune and they played it over the intercom all across the Thames. “When I got to Millwall I met my girlfriend Charlie who was driving to the check points with food and water and when she went to get a photograph a guy who looked official came over and asked if I was a West Ham supporter then told me to follow him and next thing we knew he had opened up some doors and we were on the pitch. “They were really friendly – we weren’t expecting someone to come and let us in. “My girlfriend joked to him that I had told her all Millwall fans were horrible and she said every time she meets one they are lovely.” Patrick arrived at West Ham’s London Stadium home in Stratford an hour ahead of schedule and in good time for a pint and pie and mash before kick-off.

Tributes to library architect Alsop

PECKHAM: The architect responsible for one of Southwark’s most iconic buildings has died at the age of 70.

Will Alsop died on Saturday, May 12, following a short illness, his practice aLL Design confirmed. He leaves behind his wife, Sheila, and three children, Ollie, Piers and Nancy. The renowned architect was known for his trademark avant garde, modernist architecture, including the bright green Peckham Library which won the Stirling prize in 2000. Paying tribute to the architect on Twitter, Southwark Council leader Peter John said: “Sorry to read of the death of architect Will Alsop aged 70. “His design for Peckham Library fundamentally changed people’s view of this part of our borough. “[Southwark Council] and the people of the borough will always love the building he brought us.” Marcos Rosello, co-founder of aLL Design, said: “Will has inspired generations and impacted many lives through his work. He had an exceptional ability to recognise particular strengths in individuals which he would draw out and nurture. His design ethos, essentially to 'make life better', is evident in the architecture of his buildings and their surrounding communities.” Mr. Alsop also designed TfL’s headquarters, the Palestra Building, opposite Southwark tube station.

EXERCISE CLASS FOR OLDER PEOPLE GETS FUNDING BOOST Totalitarian tone

NO-ONE WILL begrudge Peter John his victory speech after the Council elections, but his boast that Southwark is now a "Toryfree zone" strikes an unpleasant totalitarian note, it seems to me.

I am no Conservative but the loss of any Tory presence - including someone like the late Toby Eckersley - diminishes the Council, I would argue, by reducing points of view alternative to those of the whipped majority. As to voters being uncomfortable with the government's position on Brexit, what I wonder are they to make to Labour's dog's breakfast of a policy? John Taylor, Rotherhithe

Lib Dem thanks

ON BEHALF of all Southwark Liberal Democrats, I’d like to thank everyone who gave their support to us on election day.

Despite people speculating that we’d be ‘wiped-out’ from Southwark, we held our ground, we got even closer to Labour in several seats, and with the deferred election in London Bridge & West Bermondsey, we could well end up increasing our total number of councillors. Your readers however can rest assured that we work all year round, not just at election time, and definitely not just for those who voted for us. We’ll continue to hold Labour to account whether on the tens of thousands it’s giving to its own councillors as ‘Golden Goodbyes’ for literally doing nothing, on its 6000 empty homes, for slashing youth services in half at a time when knife and moped crime have gone up in half, and we’ll keep campaigning for the green infrastructure Southwark needs. We’ll always be here, to build a city

that works for all. Cllr Anood Al-Samerai, Leader of Southwark Liberal Democrats Council Group

Are congratulations on election in order?

THE MASTHEAD of the ‘News’ proclaims the paper as being the independent voice of the borough.

I take that to mean the paper does not answer to any political party nor, indeed, any man. However I question that because in last week’s editorial, the paper congratulated Southwark Labour for retaining control of the council. Fair enough, it’s good manners to congratulate winners in general but I really do think it is a bit much to then go on and rub it in by congratulating them on pushing the opposition Lib Dems and Tories out of the south of the borough. If the ‘News’ is not politically neutral it should come clean. Patrick Burke, Barbican Editor’s Note: In our editorial last week we congratulated Labour on their re-election and achieving their aim of securing the south - but reading on, we called the Lib Dems’ results something of a victory for them. We also expressed the opinion that in the interests of accountability and democracy it is better that we have opposing voices in the council. We remain politically neutral.

Give walkers a wave

THIS TIME last year I was gearing up for one of the biggest adventures of my life.

I took part in The Big Walk from Yorkshire to South London. 21 days on foot! Along the route, I met unsung heroes and fantastic projects in our communities, sharing lunch with a different group of people every day, finding out what a difference they are

making on their doorsteps. This week a new set of walkers will be representing Team London as the National-Lottery supported initiative once again hits the road. It will be challenging and rewarding in equal measures for them, but I know it’ll all be worth it when they return home in time for The Big Lunch on 3 June. I urge anyone who sees the walkers to say hello, beep your horn, or just give them a wave. Public support means the world to someone who’s been walking for weeks on end. Last year 9.3 million took part in The Big Lunch, the UK’s biggest gettogether for neighbours. I hope everyone in South London gets behind this great initiative again as we have so much to celebrate in our communities. Find out more at www.biglunch.com Mohammed Mfa Zaman, Hither Green, Eltham

OW THAT the local elections are over, and all but one ward in Southwark has its newly elected councillors in place, attention must rightfully return to the issues surrounding our borough.

One that is sadly recurrent is that of knife crime. We are all aware of the recent spout of incidents and deaths involving knives around the capital since the start of the year and Southwark is not exempt. Southwark consistently tops the charts for knife related offences, with most recent analysis for the period January 2017 to February 2018 putting Southwark’s knife offences at almost 100 more than the second worst offender, Newham. This is something I have conversations with people about every single day in my role as Assembly Member, from colleagues to the Mayor to residents to businesses; it is clear the solutions are not simple. The feeling, however, is the same. Knife crime is wrecking communities in Southwark. Recently I attended a community meeting following the tragic death of Rhyheim Barton in Kennington. Attended by the borough commander, a number of MP’s, local councillors, the Deputy Mayor for Policing and some of the local TRA leaders and residents. I heard from residents their distress and anger over the violence taking place outside their homes on an almost daily basis, the fear they have of death and injury for their children, their unified sadness over the death of Rhyheim and for his mother who they all know and love. Many proposed solutions ranging from more police, more youth service provisions, early-years mental health support and the removal of ‘drill’ music videos from YouTube when are created by known gang members. It is certainly not a one-dimensional problem but the feeling amongst the communities in Southwark is strong and united. With government cuts trickling down, mental health provisions disappearing, the Mayor being told he must make huge savings across the Met, it is difficult to see where a practical solution will arise without the funding that is clearly needed. This is why I was extremely pleased to see that the Mayor has allocated a very large chunk of the community seed fund, as a part of his knife crime strategy, to community projects in Southwark. I have visited many projects across the borough and have seen the success they’re having on communities in Southwark struggling with gang related violence and knife crime. It would be a disaster, in light of so many cuts, to see these projects also stopped or cut, so to see them funded further is fantastic. Amongst the tragedies and negativity, there is fantastic work going on in Southwark and there are strong community networks working tirelessly to tackle the knife crime epidemic we are experiencing.

A real royal romp

H

aving interviewed Tori Allen-Martin, the star of H. R. Haitch, some weeks ago and finding myself blown away by the full-on energy force that she is, I couldn’t wait to see her play Chelsea Taylor, the mixed race girl from Barking who marries into the Royal Family, writes Michael Holland.

As soon as I walked into the auditorium and found I was in the Dog & Duck I felt at home. When three generations of the Taylor family began singing about cheap grog in the Dog I knew I was in the right place. Chelsea lives in the East London pub with her widowed dad and sexmad nan and are all quite happy until a Compulsory Purchase Order arrives from the council, who want to develop the street. Placards are made up with S.T.D. in big capitals - Save The Dog and a day of campaigning is organised. Meanwhile Chelsea’s drippy boyfriend Albert decides it’s time to reveal himself as being a secret member of the Royal Family and in line to the throne; no easy task when the love of his life is a staunch Republican. Plus, Prince Albert’s sister Victoria wants the top job herself. Plotting and subterfuge are brought into play by the evil princess, with one of the plans being to split the young lovers up.

H. R. Haitch is a lot of fun and has a Christmas panto feel about it with lots of weak jokes that make you groan, and a running gag based on Chelsea taking a selfie (or Chelfie) for every situation: Chelsea excited - Snap! Chelsea hungover - Snap! Chelsea angry Snap! With the photo being instantly flashed up on a screen. That got a lot of laughs. But there was another gag running through the show about cabs, which died a quiet death after the first two times it was dropped in. Unfortunately it reappeared on another six occasion to awkward silence. In fact, H. R. Haitch is so much like a panto that it even leads up to a Christmas showdown, so I suspect the production was brought forward to coincide with this week’s Windsor wedding between a prince and a mixed race commoner. But along with the cringeworthy jokes there were some very funny, laugh out loud lines. When the Queen asks Chelsea if she is a virgin, she asks back, ‘At what?’ And the best song - There’s Life in the Old Dog Yet - performed extremely raunchily by Andrea Miller as the grandmother doing a Basic Instinct --leg cross while precariously perched on a bar stool, had absolutely nothing to with the narrative. I reckon they let Ms Miller put it in because it gets a good laugh. And it did. Tori Allen-Martin was just as

The exhibition presents exchanges between two projects, The Mercus Barn and Saturation Point. The artist David Saunders founded the former, set in the Ariège Pyrenées near the city of Foix in southern France. The latter, located in London, is an online curatorial and editorial project initiated and managed by Hanz Hancock and Patrick Morrissey. Both projects are concerned with the promotion and discussion of contemporary practices, informed by and critically intersecting with the histories of radically abstract, constructive and concrete art. Through the different approaches and diverse uses of of mediums and ‘genres’, Transforming

Surfaces invites the respondent to join the artists in a process of reading and interpreting a new and potentially defamiliarising grammar of pictorial space, rendered in the concrete materiality of surfaces and colours.

The Peckham Deluge

DELUGE IS the latest exhibition of work by Bobbie Russon.

Russon’s paintings speak to the turbulent yet contemplative and solitary place in all of us. Just as gravity compels the tides, so the works exhibited in Deluge capture the outer forces provoking inner turmoils. Overwhelmed, figures stand subjected to the storm, desperately trying to keep their heads above water. The comforts that the inhabitants of Russon’s paintings had been clinging onto have now been discarded, revealing a conflict between a sense of insecurity and independence. There is an allusion to the simultaneous desires for both parental presence and absence often experienced in the years approaching adulthood, and we wonder how momentary or deeply rooted the glares cast might be. Russon's work speaks to us on an emotional level, a whisper rather than a cry, it gives us time to stand still, time to reflect on what it means to be human.

H. R. Haitch deserves a wider audience than the usual theatregoing crowd because it is theatre such as this that would appeal to non-theatre goers if they could be enticed in. It’s not perfect but it is a real royal romp.

Deluge is on at bo.lee gallery, 222 Rye Lane, Peckham, SE15 4NL from May 24th - June 23rd. Times: Wednesday – Saturday: 11am – 6pm. Admission: Free. info@bo-lee.co.uk

H. R. Haitch can be seen at The Union Theatre, 204 Union Street, SE1 0LX until June 2nd. Times: Tuesday - Sunday 7.30pm; sun matinees 2.30pm. Admission: £22.50, £15 concs. Phone: 0207 261 9876. www.uniontheatre.biz

Soap and opera WELL I have to say bath night at my house has never been like this! Truly you will never look at your bath the same way again, and you may even go home and try a few gymnastic moves yourself after watching Soap. But be careful and don’t slip, writes Susan Hallissey

There is always such a great atmosphere at the Underbelly events and here in the Spiegeltent, tonight was no exception. A fabulous, fun-filled evening, with the audience up for the adventure just as much as the amazing cast. The cast are sexy, talented and gorgeous. In a circus cum cabaret act that includes opera and a display of acrobatics, juggling, and super-fit bodies,Soap is a genius display of thrills and slapstick. To hear an audience gasp at performances with aerial straps, hoops and the equally incredible foot juggling (Trust me, it’s amazing), makes it all the more fun as the crowd become totally immersed in the action. Soap really is one of those shows you have to go and see. Marie-Andree

Lemaire holds the piece together with her comic timing and clowning around, although each member of the cast is uniquely gifted. You will leave feeling uplifted and as long as you’re not sitting in the front few rows you should remain dry, as there is plenty of ‘splishing and sploshing’ Go and see what the human body can do with a common tub, and not a rubber

much a powerhouse on stage as she was in interview, while Emily Jane Kerr belted out a big song or two as Princess Victoria like someone who was going places, and the support from the rest of the cast was well worthy of a mention in the Queen’s Honours. I loved how the actors who play the Taylors doubled up to play Queen Mary and Prince Richard, going from Barking to Buckingham Palace in the blink of a costume change. Prince Plockey as the PM and a pervert preacher was also a joy to watch.

‘He would then put a rat and a ferret under his shirt until you could see blood” Dust chute for loading barges at the Old Kent Road Bridge on the Surrey Canal c 1920 (from the collection of Southwark Archives)

Student rediscovers autobiography detailing everyday Bermondsey life from last century

A MEMOIR detailing Bermondsey life in the last century harking back to the days of the bustling Surrey Commercial Docks and the intricacies of the area’s railway system has been rediscovered by a student, writes Chiara Giordano... The Lean Years, written by John Edmonds (1911-84), paints a vivid picture of past Bermondsey life, particularly during the inter-war period, which describes the landscapes and characters – such as the rat catcher. Edmonds, who lived in Eugenia Road for the first 30 or so years of his life, also pays particular interest to the railway system surrounding Bermondsey which he was fascinated by.

Liverpool John Moores University student Jordan Walker, who transcribed the memoir and based a series of blogs around the work, said John “really stood out” to him compared to other authors of that time. “All the others sort of have the grand schemes of twentieth century life so they are all either at war or their blogs are dedicated to a job they are passionate about but John was more of an everyday man,” the 21-year-old English student told the News. “The essence of his character came out as a character of Bermondsey; he wasn’t going on about fighting in the war but about the character of the streets – and that’s what spoke to me. “The things he wrote about were smaller things but important to him so while other people were talking about war, he wrote about the local rat catcher. “It was really strange as all the other blogs are quite sentimental, but one of the things he found most entertaining in his childhood was this guy who came out into the streets and drew lots of crowds.

Surrey Canal c 1920 – showing the Edison Bell Buildings and barges (from the collection of Southwark Archives)

“He was advertising his service where he caught rats and he used to have this big bag of live rats and a bag with two ferrets. He would then put a rat and a ferret under his shirt until you could see blood.” Edmonds’ fascination with railway systems in the area is a running theme throughout the memoir, and he believes they are “a great monument to the Victorian age about which little is known or appreciated generally”. He references the sounds he hears lying awake at night near the docks and railway – the “deep note of ocean-going ships’ sirens” and “the steady one, two, three, four, beat of goods train engines making the long haul up the incline from the Bricklayers Arms Goods Depot to Canal junction and the main line”. “He was obsessed with the local railway system and all around the Silwood estate between the Grand Central Canal and New Cross Gate,” Jordan explained. “He has a little passage in the memoir where he just takes you on a journey of the railway. “He says the railway system is more impressive than anything

modern-day machinery can do and there’s that pride in his area he ruminates on things.” Edmonds references the street names surrounding him, as well as Southwark Park, Deptford Park, the docks, and “certain pieces of open land trapped between the many intersecting railways”, which he describes as “the oases in this desert”. “He talks about other people’s education and says for example that a local character had a private school voice,” said Jordan. “He made these distinctions between his own ordinary education and these people he referred to as superior.” The Lean Years was completed in 1970 and a copy of the memoir is included in the Burnett archive of working class autobiographies at Brunel University. Jordan’s series of blogs about the memoir formed part of the Writing Lives module at Liverpool John Moores, which aims to champion the memories of working-class people.

Magical Massaman at Marie’s MARIE’S CAFE

90 Lower Marsh, Lambeth, London SE1 7AB https://mariescafe.co.uk 020 7928 1050 7am - 10.30pm FROM THE outside Marie’s Cafe looks just like any other typical cafe but once you step inside you realise this is not your normal greasy spoon, and that some of the customers are not your normal breakfast fryup clientele. In Marie’s the customers are more likely to be greeted with ‘Sawadeecup’, a traditional Thai welcome, than ‘How would you like your eggs?’, and the aromas that wrap themselves snugly around you are more Asian spice than Danish bacon, writes Michael Holland...

I was in Waterloo with my young friend Haydn, as we were hoping to watch the jazz band parade and join in the street party fun to celebrate the Old Vic’s 200th anniversary, but those events were pretty much ruined by rain. Not so our luncheon, which remained completely unaffected by the inclement weather. We went for the Set Lunch option that consisted of a main and a side each, as it widened the opportunity to sample more of the cafe’s fine wares. Haydn was intrigued by the mixed bag of table condiments: the usual suspects - red and brown sauce, salt and vinegar were all in attendance, but standing out as oddities in that company were soy sauce and the cafe’s home-made chilli oil for those that like to spice up their lives a little more. I let Haydn try a little of the oil on the tip of his fork and I could quickly tell by the grimace that he’s not quite ready for something quite so hot and fiery at this stage of his life. Before long our food arrived and it looked and tasted very fresh. The Spring Rolls were crispy, the Chicken Satay was flavoursome,, the Prawn Massaman Curry was magical and the Chicken in Oyster Sauce was just perfect. As well as the food tasting nicely cooked, the presentation added a lot too. The dishes looked bright and colourful, but without any of the unnecessary OTT levels that some

THE DAMAGE

establishments go to when they plate up meals. Everything on the plate was to be eaten and not just there to be

looked at and admired. Marie’s Cafe is one of those unique places that has its feet set firmly in two camps without it being a problem. It felt quite normal eating great Thai food alongside a young woman tucking

into an egg and bacon sandwich on the next table. It is not deemed strange to have builders’ tea and green tea on the same menu. In fact it is exactly these anomalies that make Marie’s Cafe a destination for those that know and love good food. And you can take your own wine (£1 per person corkage).

LIONESSES' BURCH NAMED BEST BOSS

36 GENERAL SPORT

By John Kelly

johnk@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL LIONESSSES boss Lee Burch was named FA Women's Super League 2 Manager of the Year after the last home game of the season against Doncaster Belles last Sunday.

Burch was presented with the award by England men’s boss Gareth Southgate at the League Managers Association Annual Awards Dinner on Tuesday night. The Lionesses went more than a year unbeaten in the league and were in the title hunt for the majority of the season, despite having three points deducted for an administrative error after their first game. Burch’s side lost 1-0 at home to the Belles, who are this season’s league champions. That defeat was the Lionesses’ first in the league at home since February 2017. The Lionesses have also had to deal with changes to the league structure and licencing that would have denied them promotion anyway, and with financial problems casting doubt on whether they would be able to complete their season. The club had to crowd fund to raise cash for their trip to Durham last month, where their long unbeaten run came to an end. Burch has been proud of performances this season despite last weekend’s result. “It was a bit heart-breaking because I thought we played really well,” Burch said. “We had a right go and then they just had a little purple patch towards the end of the first half. “We came out of the blocks really

FISHER ENDED their B League campaign away at Petts Wood last weekend. Mason Mulholland scored within 20 seconds to put the visitors ahead, but their opponents battled back to score two quick-fire goals.

Dominic Kamara hit the post just before the break but the Fish levelled in the second half when AJ Sinclair got a superb solo goal for a well-deserved 22 draw. The second game was closely fought. Henry Tyler was excellent and was later named man of the match after a performance typified by hard work and determination. The first half finished 0-0 before Kamara nudged his side in front to take him to double figures for the campaign. Sinclair scored another sensational goal to make it 2-0. The side finished with a record of fifteen wins, two draws and nine defeats after 26 games.

performances, including the subs that came on. Against teams that win leagues you’ve got to put your chances away. “I haven’t said this season we were the better side when we lost, that’s the first time. It’s a bit heart-breaking after everything we’ve been through and we now head into a tough one next

weekend. “Some of the performances this season have been excellent over all. I can’t pick out individual moments, the lead-up until the off-the-field difficulties was pretty much spot on.” The Lionesses’ last league game of the season is at Brighton this Sunday, May 20. Kick-off is 2pm.

Six of the best for Tokei Judo

BERMONDSEY’S TOKEI Judo Club took part in their first competition for adult beginners at the University of East London last week – and came home with six medals.

As well as being designed for new and inexperienced participants, the competition was also divided by grade and weight. Novices competed separately in the white to orange belt categories while those with slightly more experience competed in blue and green belts. The participants were supported by three black belt coaches, Rotherhithe’s Nicole Simpson and Chris Davies, and Richard Kurosawa from Lewisham. The competitors all live or work around Southwark, and for some it was their first-ever experience of competition. Lauren Ward won gold in the ladies novice to orange belt in the over 70kg category. Pok Tsui picked up silver in the men’s novice to orange belt under 60kg. In the novice to orange belt under 80kg competition, Etienne Labaume won bronze, while there was double success in the men’s green and blue belt under 90kg with Charlie Greenbury picking up silver and Bor Ren Hui bronze. Dave Lee also took bronze in the men’s novice to orange belt under 81kg category. A club spokesperson said: “This certainly was the best day on the medals table Tokei have had for a very long time, and I am sure there was probably a future Tokei black belt on the mat this weekend.”

Dulwich girls picked for borough

DOCKLANDS AND Fisher under8s welcomed Hillyfielders FC to Bermondsey to compete in a threeteam friendly tournament last weekend.

Fisher took on Hillyfielders first. The away side came out of the blocks quickly and some clever counterattacking contributed to a 3-0 win. It was Docklands’ turn next against the visitors. Tyler Andrews netted twice and a long-range top-corner Jack Pinell goal gave Docklands a 3-2 lead before Hillyfielders equalised with the last kick of the game. Docklands then took on Fisher, who showed great character but fell to a 3-2 defeat. The Docks goals were scored by Andrews, Pinnel and Freddie Dolan on his debut. George Humphries and Freddie Dunworth scored for Fisher. The two teams then played a seven-aside game which ended 1-1, Humphries and Dolan on target.

Fisher under-7s and Docklands under-8s both make the trip to Bognor this weekend to complete against teams from all over the country in the ESF tournament.

THIRTY-ONE athletes from James Allen’s Girls’ School (JAGS) have been selected to compete for their borough after getting the 2018 season off to a winning start at the Southwark Schools’ Athletics Championship.

Thirteen JAGS girls were celebrating after running, throwing or jumping their way to gold medals in individual events and the school also finished on top of the overall team standings. Among the highlights of the day were double gold medal winning performances by Cora, who took first place in the 100m and long jump competitions for Year 7 girls, and Eloise who finished ahead of her

rivals in the 70m hurdles and javelin for the same age group. Sophia also broke her school’s shot putt record on her way to gold in the Year 9 age group. The competition took place at the Croydon Arena last weekend and those selected for Southwark will

THE SOUTHWARK NEWS IS THE OFFICIAL MEDIA SPONSOR OF MILLWALL COMMUNITY TRUST

MILLWALL PREMIER LEAGUE KICKS CUP – CLASS OF 2018

M

ore than 650 young people from across England and Wales gathered at The University of Manchester's impressive Wythenshawe Sports Ground which was the venue for this year's Premier League Kicks Cup 2018.

For many it was their first visit to Manchester, home of recently crowned Premier League Champions Manchester City. For some they have never left their town or city. But all that were in attendance were there because of the good work they have done over the past year with their clubs through the Premier League Kicks programme. The prestigious event which featured 87 teams and representing 63 clubs from the Premier League and Football League respectively. The Millwall Premier League Kicks programme provides free weekly football sessions for young people from the ages of 8 to 19 at selected venues within the London boroughs of Southwark and Lewisham and is locally supported by Youth First and Southwark Youth & Play. Millwall selected 8 young people to represent the Lions at this year’s Kicks Cup based on their behaviour, regular attendance and football ability which had big boots to fill as the class of 2015 were winners of group B in the 2015 Kicks Cup in Liverpool. Three of those players have gone on to have trials with Football League clubs, with one of them breaking into Leyton Orients first team in 2016 and has since made 56 first team appearances for the club. A second player has since signed

two professional contracts with Norwich City and joined Grimsby on loan for the 2017/18 season making 29 first team appearances. The last of the three signed professional terms with Huddersfield at the start of 2017 before joining QPR at the start of 2018 as a member of their under 23’s squad. The young people for this year’s squad were escorted to Manchester by three of their Millwall Premier League Kicks coaches from Millwall Community Trust. They travelled by mini bus and stayed the night in the Mercure Bowden Hotel in Altrincham which is a market town in Trafford, Greater Manchester. The young people had the luxury of being treated like professional footballers by using the hotels swimming pool and spa area in preparation for the following days football festival. An evening meal out to a local Nando’s in Manchester was made extra special when the group bumped into Manchester United and Spanish international midfielder Ander Herrera who was happy to have his photo with the

boys from South London. For the Kicks Cup itself, Millwall were drawn into Group E along with Swansea, Middlesbrough, Plymouth, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Blackpool. The first game against Swansea saw the young lions run out 6-0 winners which was followed up with a disappointing 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough. The young lions then went on a 3 game 1-0winning streak against Plymouth, Sheffield United and London rivals Crystal Palace. The final two games saw Millwall win 2-0 against Huddersfield and Blackpool which saw them top their group with 19 points and 14 goals scored. Topping the group saw the young Lions drawn to face Watford in a London derby. The Lions went 1-0 down early on through a defensive error and despite having a lion share of possession they struggled to make it count and Watford deservedly went through to the quarter finals. Aside from the football, there were many other activities going on throughout the day to keep young people occupied such as Yannick

Bolasie’s 3v3 tournament, and Q&A with one of the UK's brightest independent talents, grime artist Bugzy Malone who passed on advice and discussed some of his life experiences. Football freestyler and 2017 world champion Liv Cooke put on a skills masterclass for the young people and had some of them in awe with the range of tricks on display. Now in its 12th year, PL Kicks has engaged 245,845 young people in high-need areas an opportunity to play football and develop their skills and confidence through the game with a view to creating safer, stronger and more respectful communities. Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham was on hand to give his support to the competition and said on the Premier League Kicks: "It's a truly inspiring initiative to be part of. Sport has the power to bring communities together and connect people from all walks of life." A young person that travelled with the group to Manchester commented on the two days saying: “The two days were really

good fun. We stayed the night in a nice hotel and had Nando’s for dinner which is always nice. The next day was the tournament and we were really looking forward to playing football against people from other parts of the country. I think we played very well and should have gone further in the tournament than we did. Hopefully we can go to more tournaments like this soon.” Millwall Premier League Kicks project manager Gary Otim commented: “The Premier League Kicks Cup is an annual event which everyone looks forward to. It provides young people with an excellent opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and meet fellow young people from all walks of life which is an opportunity they may not have had otherwise. The young people we selected to represent Millwall were superbly behaved and their performance on the pitch made us proud trough their technical skill and effort throughout. The most important outcome from the day was the experiences they picked up over the two days.” Millwall Community Trust will continue provide a wide range of weekly football sessions across the boroughs of Southwark and Lewisham under the Premier League Kicks programme.

WALLACE WARNING

38 MILLWALL

www.newsatden.co.uk

EXCLUSIVE

By John Kelly

johnk@southwarknews.co.uk

JED WALLACE is putting his feet up after a hectic season – but he admitted he “wasn’t ready” for the campaign to end.

Millwall were still in the promotion hunt with two games left, but it was always going to be a big ask to keep their unbeaten run going at this level and with a squad lacking the depth of their rivals. After seventeen games without a defeat in the league, they lost 3-0 at home to Fulham before a 2-0 reverse at Middlesbrough finally ended a dream that most would have said was impossible before the start of the season. One of the images of the season was Wallace in flight, celebrating his goal in the 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last December. His energy was key to Millwall’s charge up the table, allied to the granite defending of Shaun Hutchinson and Jake Cooper, composure of George Saville and Shaun Williams in midfield and the leadership of Steve Morison up front. Fewer teams in the division worked harder than Millwall in the last campaign, and Wallace believes the longer summer break and more opportunity for rest this year, after trips to Wembley in 2016 and 2017 extended their seasons to the end of May, will benefit them. And the flying winger intends to make the most of it. “I’m going to do nothing for two weeks apart from sitting still at home. I’m going to Spain with all the family after that,” Wallace said. “It’s the first time I’ve been living somewhere where I’ve been settled and where I have my family close. “But, at the same time, I wasn’t ready for the season to end. Sometimes you are because you might be living away from your family and not seen them for three months, so you just want to get back and spend time with them. “A lot of the boys have only had around six weeks off in the last 24 months with the two play-off campaigns and getting to Wembley two years in a row. So it will be nice to be able to recharge and reenergise during the summer.” Millwall are back for pre-season training on June 21, when there could be new recruits ready to join preparations for the 2018-19 season. Wallace believes it’s crucial that the squad is further strengthened, and pointed to the extra competition injected by Ryan Tunnicliffe and Conor McLaughlin last summer and Harry Toffolo in January, pushing those in the first team. He feels this is a good time to be a

supporter of the club. “It’s a massive summer for the club off the pitch,” Wallace continued. “I’ve said it before, it’s a really exciting times to be part of this club and it’s really exciting, I’m sure, to be a fan of the club. It’s probably the best three years the club has had in the last three decades.” “We added really well to the squad last January. Mezza [James Meredith] went up a level when Toff came in because Toff was competitive in training and pushing him for his position. Mezza knew he had to be on top form to keep his place. “When Macca went out [suspended] Mahlon [Romeo] came in and did really well. The gaffer plays the same

eleven most of the time, but the group is very close. “Tunni wasn’t in the team for a long spell because of the form of Sav and Willo in midfield. But when he came back in for the last two games of the season he didn’t let anyone down. The team spirit is as good or better than anywhere I have been.” Wallace was keen to sound a note of caution, however, as naturally expectation levels will be higher next season after the campaign the club just had. Wallace explained that supporters might have to get used to seeing a different approach from visiting teams to The Den. “Next year might be hard for our

fans, expectations are going to be high but it’s going to be difficult,” he said. “The likes of Norwich and Leeds know what it’s like to play us at The Den now. They could come here and sit deep and think a draw is a great result. Last season they were expected to attack us and maybe underestimated us, and we picked them off. “There could be potentially some frustration next season if teams defend deeper and we have to try to

break them down. “But then you look at Burnley. We model ourselves on them. They came up last year and then this year improved their league position. “Morale is always going to be high under this gaffer and with this group of players. We’ll come in before next season and have a laugh, have fun. And when we’re working we’re working hard. It’ll be no different. “We don’t know any different, any other way to train or to play. Fans know we are always going to give 110 per cent. That’s not going to change next season.”

ROBBO HAILS 'AMAZING' LIONS SEASON

Southwark News, Thursday May 17 2018

‘I knew Chopper would make a good manager’

EXCLUSIVE

By John Kelly

johnk@southwarknews.co.uk

FORMER MILLWALL defender Paul Robinson always knew Neil Harris would make a good manager after seeing his former team-mate’s influence in the dressing room as a player.

Robinson and Harris, along with David Forde, Andy Frampton and Tony Craig were the ‘guvnors’ in the Millwall squad that won promotion from League One in 2010. In the book ‘Family’, writer Michael Calvin spent that season with the Lions and called Harris the “spiritual leader” in the dressing room. Harris has translated that ability to command respect as a player to commanding respect as a manager and building a squad with a strong and resilient personality. Robinson was a regular visitor to The Den last season, and with AFC Wimbledon team-mate, Jimmy Abdou, who was on loan at the Dons from the Lions, attended the clash with Fulham last month when Millwall were still in with a play-off shout. Robinson said the atmosphere that Friday night was “incredible”, despite the Lions losing 3-0 to this year’s playoff finalists. Defender Robinson feels Harris’ recruitment has been key to building the kind of team that fans want to see. Robinson said it was a “shrewd” move by Harris to sign Tony Craig and Steve

Morison in his first summer in charge, and then add to that experience by bringing in young “hungry” players. Robinson, though, thinks it could be slightly trickier next season as they won’t have the same “momentum” they did coming up from League One. The Dons struggled in their second season in the third tier after promotion from League Two in 2016. But Robinson believes Harris will be prepared for that. “They had an absolutely amazing season,” Robinson told the News. “I was at the Fulham game and the atmosphere was incredible. Me and Jimmy were sitting there saying ‘wow’. “But in the Championship clubs seem to spend more and more every year. Last year they had that momentum behind them after promotion at Wembley. “In the second half of the season they were phenomenal. “I always knew Chopper would be a very good manager. He knows Millwall, he understands the club and he knows what the fans want to see on the pitch. “He was always a very good person to have in the dressing room. He was great with advice and knew the right things to say. “He has shown himself now to be a very good man manager and there is a really good feeling around the club. “Chopper knew what it would take. It was very shrewd to take Moro back. He’d been back on loan and it probably didn’t go as well as he wanted. Chopper knew how to get the

best out of him, and Moro has been excellent. “Millwall is TC’s club, he’s a leader in the dressing room. “Added to that he brought in young players who were hungry. The likes of [George] Saville and [Jed] Wallace were unloved at one of the bigger clubs, and Chopper gave them the platform to go and prove themselves and to prove a point. “They embraced that challenge and you’ve seen the results. “At the back Hutch [Shaun Hutchinson] and Coops [Jake Cooper] were outstanding. “I saw Chopper’s message after the last game of the season as well. He knows next season will be tougher, and that’s why he was telling the players to come back fit and hungry for preseason. “I’m over the moon with how they did this year.” Robinson, 36, is currently without a club but intends to carry on playing. AFC Wimbledon secured a third successive season in League One, though Robinson admitted ambitions at the start of the campaign were higher than just achieving safety. The former Lions legend is working hard on his fitness over the summer break as he tries to secure a new club. “I was always told to play as long as you can. That’s my first option though I will have other options,” Robinson said. “Hopefully my name will be circulated and I’ll catch the attention of a couple of managers. I feel good. It probably helps that as a centre-half

you’re not covering as much ground as you are in other positions, it’s more about using your experience to read games. It requires less dynamism. “At the start of last season the manager [Neal Ardley] thought we could progress [after finishing fifteenth the previous campaign]. You want to try to get up towards that top six. “Ultimately, it was a successful season. When you consider the budget the club has we can look back at it and consider it a good season.” AFC Wimbledon were formed fifteen years ago when the original Wimbledon were moved to Milton Keynes and became MK Dons. Next season will be the first time in AFC Wimbledon’s history that they will play in a higher division than MK Dons, who have just been relegated. “It gave a nice little edge to it,” Robinson admitted. “It was important for the fans. The players are aware of what’s at stake as well and the history. “It was a long, draining season for us. When you go through periods of not getting points from games the pressure intensifies. It’s great credit to the manager and the staff that in the end we got out of it and stayed up. The lads stuck at it and produced the results when they mattered most. “Jimmy was crucial for us. He always came in with a smile and the lads loved him. “The second year after promotion is always that bit tougher. You don’t want your better players to be picked off. Teams will figure you out as well. “That’s something Chopper will be very aware of next season.”

Goalkeeping coach Pressman has been responsible for nurturing Jordan Archer and Tom King in the first-team squad. The former Sheffield Wednesday stopper was also overseeing the development of youngsters Harry Girling and Ryan Sandford. Girling left Millwall this month, and Archer, King and Dave Martin can expect to be working with a new coach next season. Pressman, 50, is most associated with Sheffield Wednesday, for whom he played 478 games over nineteen seasons. He started his coaching career with Scunthorpe, and was part of their backroom staff when the Iron defeated Millwall 3-2 in the 2009 League One play-off final. He was also assistant manager to Ian Baraclough before leaving Scunthorpe in 2011. Pressman spent a season as goalkeeping coach at Bradford before joining Kenny Jackett’s Millwall in June 2012. Archer made a number of errors last season that directly led to goals. Harris wants to keep hold of Archer but knows that the goalkeeper needs to cut out simple mistakes if Millwall are to build on last season. Millwall were agreeing a settlement with Pressman earlier this week.

By John Kelly

johnk@southwarknews.co.uk

PAUL ROBINSON wants to extend his playing career – but has expressed a desire to join Millwall’s coaching staff in some capacity in the future.

Robinson, 36, left AFC Wimbledon earlier this month after helping Neal Ardley’s seal survival in League One. The Dons were in a relegation battle for most of the season, their

second successive campaign in the third tier after promotion through the play-offs in 2015-16. Robinson’s last game for the club was in their 2-2 draw against Bury on the final day that saw them finish eighteenth in the table. Centre-half Robinson, who captained Millwall to victory in the League One play-off final in 2010 when he also scored the winning goal against Swindon, is loved by Lions fans. Lions boss Neil Harris’ former team-mate has completed three of his five coaching badges and is currently working on his A Licence.

But he is not ready to hang up his boots just yet, and feels he still has a lot to offer as a player. Robinson was meeting his agent earlier this week as he seeks to secure a club for next season. Whenever he does retire, it seems certain that he will move into coaching. “I’m halfway through my A Licence, I hope to finish it by Christmas,” Robinson said. “I love Millwall. I have a strong affinity with Chopper so it would be amazing to work with him again at some point. “I’m just enjoying my break at the
