Are the police able to control the situation?

T

HE TERRIFYING spike in knife and gun crime across London is becoming all too real for communities in Southwark with attacks happening on a weekly basis, and you have to question whether a reduced police force is able to control the situation.

In Rotherhithe local people are ‘reclaiming’ their woodland after a spate of violent episodes including a double stabbing, when two women with their children were confronted by a pair of robbers. One of the women was stabbed in the hand and a man who came to their rescue was also stabbed in the hand. In Peckham there has been a double shooting and this week in Bermondsey a young man’s life hangs in the balance after he was stabbed on an estate in broad daylight. In the face of this alarming rise in serious crime we see the police, the government and London Mayor Sadiq Khan desperately looking for answers. But until money is spent now to tackle the problem head on, it is inevitably going to get worse. Yes in the long-term extra funding for youth services, mental health care and education, which have all been in cut for years now, will help buck the trend. But what is needed this year, this month, this week, now, is more police to patrol the streets. Good on the people of Rotherhithe who are patrolling the woodland with big dogs and planning a get together of their community. But it is plain routine police patrols keeping public spaces safe that will reassure everyone. The Met has been ordered to make savings of £325 million by the financial year 2021-22. In tandem, officer numbers were expected to fall to 30,000 and even further in the next three years. Southwark and Lambeth police were merged into one basic command unit headed up by commander Simon Messinger. He told the News in April that the full merger would take place later in the year, but the public should not feel any changes, confirming response teams will still be working from Peckham and Brixton, and the neighbourhood teams, including dedicated ward officers, will also remain in place. He said: “We are really ploughing money back into our IT strategy to help cops be out more, making us more agile, though we may have to slim down management and numbers to a certain extent.” His team have had some success tackling violent crime – according to the Met 60% of knife crime in the borough is linked to robberies – so knife crime is not just ‘gang’ related. Knife crime and moped-enabled crime increased by half last year and muggings by a quarter in Southwark, according to data obtained by the Lib Dems through a Freedom of Information request. But Messinger believes his tactics are working. He told the News in May that since January 2018 knife and violent crime has been reduced by nearly 30 per cent in Southwark, with police making 38 offensive weapon arrests and 49 robbery arrests. The truth is that we are unable to get the real stats from the police for Southwark unless we make a lengthy Freedom of Information request. In the meantime the reports featured each week in the News speak for themselves.

Underground celebrations for tunnel’s 110th birthday

ROTHERHITHE

By Simon Throssell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

THIS WEEK marks the 110th anniversary of the formal opening of the Rotherhithe Tunnel - which cost just £2million to build by the time it was completed in 1908.

Originally designed and built by Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice between 1904 and 1908, the crossing features a bend in the middle to stop its original users, horse-drawn carriages, from bolting once they passed through the entrance arches. The 4,860 feet long tunnel connects Limehouse in east London to Rotherhithe; a journey that now almost 30,000 vehicles complete a day. It took 800 workers four years to complete, a year and a half ahead of schedule, and cost £2 million to construct. Two huge tunneling shields were used to dig through the hard London clay. The movable barriers were moved forward inch by inch as the workers carried out their jobs behind. Nearly 3,000 people were displaced from both sides of the river to make way for the tunnel. It was formally opened on June 12 by the Prince of Wales, who went on to become King George V. The tunnel even has its own ghost story. Tunnel staff have told the tale

of a wheelbarrow in the sub-tunnel ‘moving’ over night during maintenance closures, with one claiming to have seen photos of the ‘ghost’. Transport for London’s (TfL) Director of Network Management, Glynn Barton, praised the tunnel, saying: “The Rotherhithe Tunnel is a vital part of London’s transport network and is used by more than 12 million vehicles a year.” With an increase in the amount of traffic on the road, more than it was ever designed to carry, TfL have introduced significant measures in order carefully to monitor and manage the flow of traffic. There are currently twelve CCTV cameras located throughout the tunnel, as well as strict height and width restrictions to ensure safety when travelling. “The restriction on vans and wide vehicles in the tunnel is important for its modern day use, as it reduces the risk of collisions” said Mr Barton. In an investigation carried out by the organisation identified that up to 6,500 vehicles wider than the limit could be illegally entering the tunnel every day, despite the clear signage on all approaches highlighting the restrictions. Drivers who ignore the restrictions risk receiving a fine of £50 or prosecution.

Vehicles that do not meet the requirements of the Rotherhithe Tunnel should alternatively use Tower Bridge or the Blackwall Tunnel – both of which are outside of the Congestion Charge.

Teenager arrested on suspicion of Rhyhiem’s murder

OFFICERS INVESTIGATING the fatal shooting of seventeenyear-old Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton from Kennington’s Brandon Estate have made an arrest.

Rhyhiem died in hospital at 6.56 pm on Saturday, May 5, from a gunshot injury after being found on Warham Street after reports of shots fired on nearby Cooks Road. The Met said a seventeen-yearold male was arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday, 10 June, who has since been released under investigation. Trident officers are also investigating another Southwark shooting, on Saturday, June 2. The double attack on Wodehouse Avenue left a Peckham man critically injured after being shot in the face, and another with non-life threatening injuries. As yet no arrests have been made.

Female assaulted in Bermondsey shop

A MAN remains in police custody after a female member of staff was injured at a shop premises in Bermondsey.

Police were called to the premises in Southwark Park Road at about 3.50pm on Monday, June 11, following reports that a member of staff had been assaulted. Officers attended and the victim was treated for a minor injury to her hand. “It is believed that she was injured as the suspect attempted to take an item after the sale was refused,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson told the News. A 25-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault, handling stolen goods and possession of Class B drugs. He was taken to a south London police station, where he remains in custody.

Did you see Crystal Palace collision? POLICE ARE appealing for witnesses of a ‘serious collision’ in Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The cyclist, a 45-year-old man, was airlifted to a south London hospital, where he remains in a critical condition. The car stopped at the scene and the driver is assisting the police, who are looking to speak to anyone who saw the collision, or who may have dashcam footage.

A 23-YEAR-OLD man, described as “kind, loving and funny”, was fighting for his life in hospital after being stabbed in broad daylight on a Bermondsey estate.

Police and ambulance crews were called to Lucey Way at about 6.17pm on Monday, June 11, to reports of a man suffering stab injuries. The victim, who police say is still in a critical but stable condition, has not yet been identified by police. He has been described locally as a 23year-old man from a “nice family” who “never causes any trouble and is always willing to help”. A resident who lives in the area described the moment the man was rushed into someone’s home while people called an ambulance. “At about 6.18pm I looked out of the window and I know it sounds stupid but it looked like he was dancing and all of

a sudden you could see blood and everyone was shouting that he had been stabbed,” the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, told the News. “A resident took him into her home and someone called an ambulance.” The woman said she often saw the man in Lucey Way, but that she believed he was from another estate in Bermondsey. “He has never caused any harm; they keep to themselves,” she said. “Whenever I’ve come with my shopping he has helped. He is meant to be from a nice family.” A woman who knows the victim, but did not want to be identified, described the incident as “a tragedy”. “He’s honestly such a lovely boy, never causes any trouble and is always willing to help,” she said. “He’s a kind, loving and funny young man; it really is such a tragedy.” A resident who has lived on the estate for fifteen years said she hoped the incident was “just a one off”.

“It’s really worrying,” she said. “It’s a big estate – we are one of the biggest estates still standing and we still have a really good community feeling. “There’s never been anything on this scale while I’ve lived here. “It’s sad and it’s horrible but hopefully it’s just a one off.” Police cordoned off the area surrounding the estate after the incident on Monday, but it had been scaled back to a small area as the paper went to press. A business owner who was unable to open his shop because of the cordon said he was “surprised” by the stabbing because he had never known anything like it to happen since he had been there. Bermondsey and Old Southwark MP Neil Coyle said he would be asking the Metropolitan Police Commissioner again for additional resources for the borough “to cope with the local levels of crime and violence”. “I’m pushing again the government on this pathetic slump in prosecution

because the more people get away with violent crimes, the more they will do it again,” he added. “We absolutely need to make sure they are caught and sentenced and it’s simply not happening and fundamentally part of the problem is that police don’t have the time or the resources.” The man was said to be in a critical but stable condition in a south London hospital on Wednesday morning. Local reports say he was stabbed four times, but this has not been confirmed by police or ambulance. A spokesperson said police were keeping an open mind regarding the motive of the stabbing, but did not make any appeal describing possible suspects. There have no arrests and inquiries continue. Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101 or tweeting @MPSSouthwark. To report information anonymously, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visiting www.crimestoppers-uk.org

Canada Water masterplan now online to view By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

PLANS FOR a huge 53-acre regeneration of Canada Water have been submitted to the council after four years of consultation and are now available to view and comment on online. 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. 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. 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. This would mean the entire masterplan could be built by 2033. Members of the public can comment on the plans as part of the consultation period until July 8. To view and comment on the plans, visit the Southwark Council website and search for planning reference number 18/AP/1604.

A SEA OF BLACK AND WHITE FOR LES ROWE

www.southwarknews.co.uk/news

BERMONDSEY By Kevin Quinn

kevin@southwarknews.co.uk

BERMONDSEY’S ST JAMES’S Church was a sea of Fisher black and white on Monday as mourners packed in to pay their respects to the boxing and football stalwart Les Rowe.

The 83-year-old’s coffin was draped in the Fisher colours of black and white, as Albin’s Funeral Directors marched into the ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ track by Gerry and the Pacemakers. Members of the Fisher Downside Boxing Club and Fisher Athletic Football Club from across the decades came together, with a moving tribute by one of the footballers Les coached from the age of fifteen. Dennis Sharp had the congregation laughing and shedding a tear as he recounted the life of a man who was hailed as matchmaker extraordinaire at the Fisher Downside Boxing Club in Druid Street Bermondsey, before making the extraordinary leap at the height of his fame in the 1960s to become Fisher Athletic Football Club manager. In another tribute Danny Ranshi said Les was best summed up as someone who always looked on the bright side of life, coming to his west London offices saying “the sun is always shining”, before the packed church was given time to reflect to the soundtrack of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me To The Moon’. The King of Swing was also chosen for the final song, with the coffin taken out of the church to ‘That’s Life’. Les, who was born and bred in Bermondsey but never married, was buried at Streatham Park cemetery, and laid to rest with his mother and father. The Stanley Arms in Bermondsey hosted a wake to celebrate a man who was clearly loved by generations of Bermondsey and Rotherhithe people.

SUGGESTIONS FOR a permanent memorial for much-loved funeral director Barry Albin-Dyer have been flooding in.

On the News’ Facebook page and via email people have been supporting the campaign to create a fitting memorial, after an earlier push to get a park named after him was blocked. Many have suggested a statue of Barry and Southwark Park appears to be the place most people are currently suggesting. Yvonne Ramos wrote: “A statue of Barry Albin Dyer at the gates of Southwark Park, tipping his hat, just like in the photo, there for generations to come.” Tony Moorcroft suggested renaming the bandstand in the park after him. Deidreia Feaver also liked the idea of a statue, with him “throwing up doves”, but on the Rotherhithe Tunnel roundabout near the park and next to

A BY-ELECTION will be held in London Bridge and West Bermondsey ward today Thursday, June 14, after it was cancelled following the death of a candidate last month.

The election was unable to go ahead on May 3 after Conservative candidate Toby Eckersley sadly died unexpectedly aged 76. Tributes flooded in for the former Dulwich Village politician after his death, who was described as a “quintessential Englishman” and praised for his commitment and drive to serving his constituents. Voters in London Bridge and West Bermondsey must go to their allocated polling station – unless they have chosen to vote by post or proxy – between 7am and 10pm on Thursday, June 14. Candidates standing for election in London Bridge & West Bermondsey: Humaira Ali, Liberal Democrat John Seymour Batteson, Labour Bernard John Creely, Green Julie Eyles, Labour Hannah Elizabeth Ginnett, Conservative William Houngbo, Liberal Democrat Edward Joseph McDonagh, Labour Nathan Newport Gay, Conservative Damian Shaun O’Brien, Liberal Democrat Richard John Packer, Conservative Claude Rubio Werner, Green Toby Eckersley

Southwark News, Thursday June 14 2018

Albin’s funeral home. Last week on the third anniversary of his death, his sons Simon and Jon Dyer told the News that they would like local people to decide a fitting place and memorial. His premature death of brain cancer at 64-years of age saw a huge outpouring of grief in Bermondsey. An avid Fisher FC supporter and on the club’s board, local people campaigned for a new park to be named after him on the site of the former ground. However, the council decided last September to name it Mayflower Park, to coincide with the Mayflower celebrations and offered to name the stand in Fisher’s new ground after Barry instead. As Barry was not involved and died before the new ground was built, Simon and Jon are asking all local people and those who campaigned for the park to come up with the most fitting place and

memorial for their father. You can make your suggestion to the News by emailing news@southwarknews.co.uk

John’s London Councils chair By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK LEADER Peter John has become chair of London Councils.

Cllr John was elected chair of the cross-party organisation, which represents the 32 London boroughs and the City of London Corporation, at its annual general meeting. He succeeds Claire Kober, also of the Labour party, who stepped down as Haringey leader at the last election. Setting out his priorities for London over the next four years, Cllr John said London Councils had “an essential role to play in ensuring that the collective work and expertise of the boroughs is harnessed effectively in the service of London and Londoners”. "London Councils provides the key forum for helping the boroughs combine to make the case to Government, with the Mayor and others, for the funding, freedoms and powers to tackle the big challenges facing London from housing, infrastructure, skills and employment to transport, the environment and health and care,” he added. "Ensuring London’s services are

sustainably funded is a key priority, particularly in the context of the Government’s fair funding review and the next spending review. “We know children’s services and adult social care are under incredible pressure in the capital. “We need to make the case for sustainable funding and why investing in prevention at local level represents good value for all Londoners. "I look forward to working with borough Leaders and directly elected Mayors on a cross-party basis to make the case for London’s councils and to working with the Mayor, London MPs and others on behalf of London as a whole.” Cllr John has been leader of Southwark Labour since 2004 and leader of Southwark Council since May 2010. He was formerly deputy chair of London Councils and executive member for business, skills and Brexit.

School worker and hospital staff in Queen’s birthday honours awards By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

Galleywall Primary School office manager Janie Ewing, who helped set up the City of London Academies Trust school, has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for her work. The 52-year-old has worked for nearly 20 years in Bermondsey primary schools in roles ranging from teaching assistant, to special educational needs co-ordinator and autism specialist – and is known for always going above the call of duty. “I heard about the nomination a few weeks ago when a letter arrived from the Home Office,” said Janie. “I thought I was being called for jury service and was completely stunned when I read the letter and saw I had been awarded a British Empire Medal. “I am very honoured but also deeply aware that there are wonderful people in Galleywall Primary and Redriff Primary where I have worked who, in my view, have achieved astonishing things in the community and who have not been nominated.” Three members of staff from Guy’s and St Thomas’ have also been recognised in this year’s list. Dr Nadine Hachach-Haram, a specialist registrar in plastic surgery, received a British Empire Medal (BEM) for her services to surgery and innovation. She co-founded Proximie – an awardwinning augmented reality healthcare technology company which allows specialists to virtually transport themselves into any clinical setting around the world to assist local medical teams during consultations or procedures. Dr Hachach-Haram, who is also a lecturer and NHS clinical entrepreneur, said: “I am incredibly proud and humbled to receive this award so early in my career. “I’m passionate about innovation in healthcare and how we can leverage technology to improve the care our patients receive here in the UK and across the world.” Professor Charles Wolfe, director of research and development, has been made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to stroke and public health medicine. “I was surprised to find out about my OBE,” said Professor Wolfe, who is also Professor of Public Health at King’s College London. “This isn’t just for me – it’s for people I’ve worked with over the years, particularly those I’ve worked with at Guy’s and St Thomas’ in the field of stroke. It’s a team effort.” Dr David Craig, consultant and head of sedation and special care dentistry, has been made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to dental patients. “I’m delighted to receive this

recognition; it's lovely for our department too,” said Dr Craig. “Training students and providing care for our patients is what makes our jobs so worthwhile. “I feel so fortunate to have been at Guy's and St Thomas’ and to have had the opportunity to work alongside so many wonderful colleagues.” Janet Vitmayer CBE, formerly chief executive of the Horniman Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill, has been appointed a dame for her services to museums and diversity. In her 20 years at the helm of the Horniman, Janet led a series of successful capital developments and fundraising campaigns, resulting in the transformation of its galleries, buildings and gardens, and a trebling of visitor numbers. Janet, who is currently a trustee at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Florence Nightingale Museum and the Hunterian Collection London, said: “I have worked alongside the most dedicated and inspirational people over the last 40 years, much credit goes to them. “From my very first day I fell in love with the people visiting and participating in our museums; helping make visitors more reflective of our communities has filled me personally with great joy. “I am touched to receive such a great honour.” Recently retired Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who led the Metropolitan Police's response to the 2017 terror attacks, was also awarded a knighthood for his contribution to national security. Dean Haydon, Deputy Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations, has been awarded a Queen's Police Medal (QPM) for distinguished service to policing. DAC Haydon played a leading role in the investigations into the terrorist attacks in Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park and the Manchester Arena attack, all in 2017, as well as the terrorist attacks in Tunisia in 2015 and 2016, the 7/7 attacks in London and 9/11 where he assisted in tracing British nationals. Detective Chief Inspector Peter Sparks, who led the family liaison following the 2017 terror attacks in London and worked with bereaved families following the 7/7 London bombings and the murder of Lee Rigby, was awarded a Queen's Police Medal (QPM) for distinguished services to policing.

Lack of students could see sixth form close

THE MANAGER of a restaurant in Herne Hill has told of her fears a new InLink tower installed outside could destroy the fledgling business.

Park’s Edge restaurant opened in October 2017 on Norwood Road, named after its view over Brockwell Park. Last month, the News’ food reviewer Michael Holland recently described its culinary fare as ‘gastronomical science at its best’. But the restaurant’s managers (pictured) believe its future is in jeopardy after Southwark Council gave planning permission for an InLink’s phone and WiFi tower to be installed on the pavement right outside. InLinkUK is a BT service providing free phone calls, WiFi, charging, maps and advertising. General Manager Claudia McKenzie says the shop-lined road already does not get quite the same footfall as elsewhere in Herne Hill. She told the News that since moving in to the area, she and her colleagues have been working with many of the longstanding traders next door – which include Olley’s Fish Experience – to improve the road’s reputation. “We want to be a more central part of Herne Hill”, she said. “There are some long-standing and hardworking shop keepers on Norwood Road who people will travel to visit, but I think the road has an undeserved reputation of being slightly out of kilter with other well regarded roads in the area. “To put something like an InLink here means our business will suffer as well as the standing of the road.”

What were you InLINK ing?

Southwark council gave InLink the goahead despite objections from the restaurant, the Herne Hill Society and Herne Hill Forum – and despite the fact that two old phone boxes have been removed from other areas of Herne Hill. Ms McKenzie suggested other sites, such as the pedestrianised station square and says she has had no explanation as to why outside her restaurant has been chosen. The base of the tower was fitted last week, with work completed on Monday. “We had our first dog making use of it yesterday,” Ms McKenzie told the paper on Sunday. “It will attract the wrong type of behaviour and I think it is our absolute disappointment that the council has failed to listen to local traders’ concerns. “We are a young business and we are trying very, very hard to prove our food credentials. A lot of time and investment has gone into setting up this business but we are not there yet.

“Having an InLink right outside will be a huge set back.” A spokesperson for InLinkUK told the News it had followed the ‘necessary statutory planning process’ with a full application submitted in February and approved in April, and said it was unable to comment on the council’s consultation process. The spokesperson said InLink had been unaware of residents’ objections and got in touch with Ms McKenzie when she had directly contacted them, which led to them placing the InLink on the boundary of the restaurant, slightly further away. “Unfortunately the other sites the owners suggested have pedestrian safety and highway restrictions or risks which means they are not suitable as a site for an InLink,” the spokesperson said. “We have committed to continue to engage with Park’s Edge and hope to find a way to support their business with the InLink’s screens in due course.

“The InLinks are proving a popular service for the communities we are in with over 100,000 unique Wi-Fi subscribers and we’ve saved users over £352,000 in free calls. “We have also been supporting small businesses utilising the screens to promote their services, alongside the content the team at InLinkUK create to engage and connect communities.” Southwark councillor Kieron Williams, cabinet member for jobs, skills and innovation, said: “While the planning decision was made using the normal process and any objections would be considered as part of that, we want to try and support our local businesses and have been looking at a possible solution. “In this instance it looks like an alternative location could be used away from the front of the shop, with a nonmaterial change to the existing planning permission. “BT has been advised of the issue and we hope they will respond positively.”

bed was in Manchester,” said the 76 year old, who lives in East Dulwich. “Her family were distressed and had to travel back and forth while she was there for probably just over a week. “I got in touch with a governor at SLaM [South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust] and between us we managed to get her brought back nearer to home to Bethlem Royal Hospital.” Mr White said it was “outrageous” that patients in a mental health crisis were expected to go to King’s A&E. “I would ask anyone who questions what I’m saying to stand on the pavement outside the Maudsley hearing voices that they are a waste of space and to do everyone a favour and commit suicide – would you turn around and walk into the Maudsley which is quiet and peaceful or across the road where there are police cars and ambulances,” he said. “In all the eighteen years we’ve been doing this, this is the biggest thing we will ever have accomplished if we can find this place of sanctuary for so many mental health patients.” A spokesperson for South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust said: “Considering a separate emergency

department for psychiatric patients at Maudsley Hospital would be a considerable step backwards for the parity of esteem for our patients. “Many patients with mental health problems attending A&E also have significant physical health conditions that require urgent assessment and treatment, which are best addressed within an A&E. “A significant number of these patients also require mental health assessment and treatment. This is particularly true of our elderly population who may present with either delirium or dementia. “The Trust has dedicated psychiatric liaison teams working within local A&E departments who work with other clinicians to provide an integrated service that addresses people’s whole health needs. “The Trust is aware of the significant demand that there currently is within KCH and other local emergency departments to meet demand and ensure that patients are kept safe and their needs are met.” A demonstration will be held outside the Maudsley Hospital at Denmark Hill from 12-2pm on Thursday, June 21.

Protests for Maudsley 24-hour ‘place of sanctuary’ By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

CAMPAIGNERS WILL gather outside the Maudsley Hospital to demand a 24-hour “place of sanctuary” for mental health patients is opened. Since the emergency clinic at the psychiatric hospital in Camberwell was closed in 2007, patients have been directed to King’s College Hospital A&E department nearby. But campaigners say the busy A&E can feel like an “awful place to be” for patients suffering a mental health crisis – and that they want to see a separate 24hour walk-in centre opened, especially for children, young people, pregnant women, and women with babies. Speaking to the News, SPAG health spokesperson Tom White also highlighted the recent case of a sixteenyear-old girl from Southwark with mental health issues who was taken to a hospital in Manchester because there weren’t any beds available in the area. “The first port of call is King’s A&E, so her family took her there, but the nearest

In a formal statement circulated on June 4, 2018, the school said it had begun a consultation with students, parents and the wider community to discuss whether its sixth form should shut down. It said the consultation came after ‘careful consideration’, primarily due to low student intake which means the cashstrapped sixth form has to rely on subsidised funds meant for younger students. The school says closing means that funding currently diverted to the sixth form would be put back into years seven to eleven, and any the 79 students currently in year twelve would be given a place at another academy or at alternative schools. According to the school, 63 of them have so far been guaranteed with places at other Harris academies, and the remaining who are studying for professional qualifications will have the option to transfer to other providers if they want to move on to the next stages of their courses. The sixth form has struggled with dwindling student numbers, with its largest class having just seven students. In year thirteen there is only one student studying ICT, and one studying law. The sixth form’s academic results are ‘average’, according to the Department for Education’s league tables. The school has ended up having to pay back funds to the government when student numbers were less than anticipated. It is expected that if the sixth form stays open into the 2018/2018 academic year, the academy would overspend by £441,000. A spokesperson for Harris Academy Peckham said: “Although a change like this is very significant for the academy, we firmly believe it is in the best interests of students. “Some courses in the current sixth form only have a small handful of students enrolled and we cannot justify delivering these at the expense of younger students. “In time, we want to open a new sixth form with courses that are much more attractive. This way, we will have more students enrolled and will be able to run a thriving sixth form that does not rely on subsidy from year groups lower down the school. “We have placed all of the information about our consultation on our website, and will listen carefully to what people say.” The consultation period will end on July 6, 2018.

‘RECLAIMING’ ROTHERHITHE

Dog patrols and march planned after string of muggings EXCLUSIVE

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A COMMUNITY in Rotherhithe will host a family-friendly march to “reclaim” their area after a string of muggings and knife crime.

The peaceful rally has been organised to “send a message to criminals” that residents will not let them take over their area. It comes after a number of incidents around Russia Dock Woodland and Stave Hill Ecological Park, including a robbery on June 1, during which two women with children were approached by a pair of men. One of the women was stabbed in the hand during a struggle and had her iPhone 7 stolen, while a male passer-by who tried to intervene was also stabbed in the hand. The director of fitness group Bootcamp SE16 has launched self-defence classes for residents as a “direct response” to the incident to teach people how to manage conflict in certain scenarios.

An organiser of the community march, which will begin at Stave Hill steps at 11am on Sunday, June 24, said dog walkers had begun to “patrol” the woodlands. “The local dog walkers have taken it upon themselves to patrol the woodlands with larger dogs,” said the woman, who wished to remain anonymous. “They are just going out and they are walking and if they see anything they are reporting it straight away; we are not trying to fight crime, we are not trying to do anything brash. “It’s just like neighbourhood watch on a larger scale and Sadiq Khan is pushing for that, he is urging communities like ours to do what we are doing. “We just want to feel like we are doing something and we’ve got some control.” A route is yet to be confirmed for the march, but a session to prepare banners for the event will be held on Friday, June 15. Someone will have a megaphone on the day and it is hoped that the schools and farm in the area will get involved. “We are not trying to make it political or about demands, we just want to protest against the criminals and we just want to let them know that we will not let them invade our space and our territory and let us be afraid,” said the organiser. “We are just sending a message out to the criminals that we are on to the case.” For further information, visit the Canada Water Safety Network group on Facebook.

Southwark News, Thursday June 14 2018

POLICE HAVE made an arrest after a man and woman were stabbed in the hand during a robbery in a Rotherhithe woodland.

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of robbery in the early hours of Thursday, June 7. He was taken into custody at a south London police station and later bailed pending further inquiries to a date in late June. The arrest follows a robbery near the Trust for Urban Ecology building in Stave Hill Ecological Park at about 11.25am on Friday, June 1. Two women, aged 37 and 40, were walking with their children through the park when they were approached by a pair of men. One of the men tried to snatch a handbag belonging to one of the women, who was stabbed in the hand during the struggle, before he stole a rose gold iPhone 7. He then snatched an iPhone belonging to the second woman and stabbed a 49year-old man in the hand when he tried to intervene. The two male suspects fled on foot through the woods following the incident. The injured man and woman were taken to hospital for treatment and were discharged later that same day. Owen Pyle, Inspector for Neighbourhood Policing in Southwark, branded the incident a “shocking and brazen attack in broad daylight” which resulted in “a number of children being terrified”. "While we have made an arrest, our work remains ongoing to ensure those responsible for this abhorrent crime are

brought to justice,” he said. "There will be increased police patrols of the area over the next few weeks in the run up to the summer holidays, particularly around school start and finish times, to reassure residents and deal with any issues. "I would urge the community to report all incidents or suspicious behaviour to police; even if the information seems insignificant, it may be the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle for us."

Couple say they might head back to Romania as they don’t feel safe

A COUPLE say they are planning to move away from London after two bikes were stolen from their home in Rotherhithe in the space of a fortnight.

Sergio Dacin, 29, and his wife Adriana Tont, 28, say they might move back to Romania next year as they no longer feel safe where they live. The couple, who live in Brunswick Quays, had one bike stolen from where it was chained up in front of their home at about 4pm on May 21 and the other from their back garden, which backs on to Russia Dock Woodland, at 2.23pm on June 4. Mr Dacin said he had also found the tyres of his car slashed twice since moving into the area a year ago. “The first time we had a bike stolen I came home at 5pm to find the bike wasn’t there, and the second time I was in the kitchen with my wife cooking when I heard a noise,” said the lorry driver. “We went into the living room to check but couldn’t see anything but when we went outside to have our dinner and started to eat I just saw the bike was missing. “The bike was covered in my garden where nobody could see it.” Mr Dacin said he was scared that next time he will find whoever stole

the bikes in his home. “The problem is we don’t feel safe at all in this area – I’ve changed all the locks in my house,” he said. “Before this I used to be a locksmith so I know about this area and I had a lot of jobs to secure houses after burglaries. “I’ve been in London for nearly six years and I’m thinking of going home next year.” The first bike stolen on May 21 was a red bike worth about £150 which Mr Dacin used to travel to work. The second bike stolen on June 4 was a silver Carrera Hellcat limited edition mountain bike with 29-inch tyres worth about £800. A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said all leads were exhausted regarding the red bike stolen on May 21 and that the case was closed. However, police will pursue any further evidence that comes to light. Inquiries continue into the silver Carrera bike stolen on June 4 and there have been no arrests. Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101 or tweeting @MetCC. To give information anonymously, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at https://crimestoppersuk.org/

As previously reported by the News, Stephanie Jannati, 34, who runs the Bootcamp SE16 fitness club in the woodland, has launched self-defence classes for people in the area as a “direct response” to the incident. The mother of two, who was herself the victim of a mugging in Canada Water in 2010, said she made the decision to set up the classes after hearing of other mums in the area who are becoming too afraid to go into

Russia Dock Woodland and the park alone. The community is also planning to host a family-friendly march on Sunday, June 24, in a bid to “reclaim” their area and “send a message to criminals”. Anyone with information about the robbery on June 1 is asked to call Southwark Police on 101 quoting ref: 2786/1Jun. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Man fighting cancer loses treasured paintings and family photos in leak

PECKHAM

By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

A MAN with lung cancer has told of his devastation after losing precious family photos and treasured paintings after a twoweek leak in his Peckham council flat.

Sixty-seven-year-old William Norris has lived on Wilmott Close in Peckham for nine years. For the last five, he has suffered from lung cancer, undergoing 34 radiotherapy sessions and one round of chemo. His sister, Barbara Phillips, has cared for him and helped to take him to hospital throughout his illness – including when he developed sepsis and moved into St Christopher’s hostel. Mr Norris has to walk with a stick and within the last week has come down with a chest infection causing him to cough up blood. He believes his damp flat is making his health worse, after a leak which started more than a fortnight ago and has only just been fixed. Brown sludgy water was pouring from a water tank in a cupboard next to the bathroom, but because the tank contains asbestos he was told he has to wait until a special team can open it

up safely to fix it. But as the stop-cock to turn off the water is partially seized up, water continued to come out and his bedding and other belongings – including his own drawings and paintings, and

family photographs – have been left ruined and piled up in the flat, or needing to be thrown out. Mr Norris’ bathroom light also had to be removed to stop water leaking into the electrics, leaving him unable

to shower at home. Mr Norris says whenever he phoned the council he gets cut off, telling the News last week: “I have really bad pain in my lungs and I’m coughing up blood now because of the chest

“I haven’t got a bed, wardrobe or chest of drawers – I’m literally sleeping on my little sofa. It’s really hard. “I’m 30 and I don’t have a life really and no clothes because they have been ruined by the damp.” Ms McNeil said she had initially been offered £1,000 in compensation

by L&Q and then £1,925 but that this was not enough and that she wanted to move away from the area. An L&Q spokesperson said: “We are very sorry for the delay in resolving this issue. “We take the health, safety and wellbeing of our residents very seriously. “On this occasion we have not provided the high standard of service we aim to provide. “At present we are in constant contact with Ms McNeil regarding the damp in her property and are in the process of carrying out extensive repairs which we expect to be completely shortly. “We will ensure that Ms McNeil is adequately compensated for any distress and inconvenience this has caused. We have provided Ms McNeil with advice on her options for moving and will continue to assist her in this regard. We are happy to carry out adaptations to any property that is deemed to be unsuitable for a resident following an occupational therapist report. “We will investigate and advise Ms McNeil should further adaptations be required.”

Woman with cerebral palsy ‘left sleeping on couch’

BERMONDSEY

A WOMAN with cerebral palsy says she feels “neglected” by a housing association after damp ruined her bed and left her sleeping on her couch.

Natasha McNeil says the groundfloor flat in Grange Road, Bermondsey, owned by London and Quadrant (L&Q), is not suitable for her needs as it has damp in the bedroom, kitchen and living room, and has a shower over a bath rather than a wet room. The 30-year-old said she had reported the issue of damp in the property to L&Q since it began in 2010 and was now sleeping on a couch in her living room because her bedroom furniture had been ruined. “I’ve been raising the issue with L&Q since 2010 and I feel like they’ve just neglected me,” said Ms McNeil, whose legs are both affected by cerebral palsy. “My flat is not suitable for my needs; I haven’t got a wet room and can’t climb in and out of the bath sometimes because my legs seize up.

infection. “They know that I am vulnerable and disabled but they just do not seem too bothered. “It is alright to say that the plumber won’t go in there because of the asbestos - but I have to live here.” Although the leak has finally been stemmed, Mr Norris is unsure how and when all the damage will be repaired. After being contacted by the News, Councillor Stephanie Cryan, cabinet member for housing management and modernisation, said: “I would like to say sorry to Mr Norris that getting everything fixed has taken longer than it should have done. “We have visited Mr Norris this week to see how he is. Our repairs team visited a number of times and found several repairs which potentially needed addressing. “In the end, the leak was fixed with a new stop cock and valve, so there was no need for the tank to be removed. “We will also be repairing the bathroom light and doing an inspection afterwards to make sure that any damage from the leak is also made good. “I hope that Mr Norris’s flat is soon in a much better state of repair and he can live more comfortably.”

A NEW ‘baby bank’ will launch in Nunhead’s Ivy House pub next month to help families struggling to pay for costly baby items.

The Little Village charity already has branches in Camden and Wandsworth where locals can donate new or outgrown baby clothes and other essentials to be given to families in need. Southwark’s bank will be based in Nunhead’s community-owned pub, The Ivy House, from June 2018, after raising more than £6,000 to expand into the borough. One of Little Village Southwark’s founders, Tessa Blunden, said: “Our research found that the child poverty rate in Southwark is 37 per cent, with some parts at over 40 per cent. This translates to more than one-in-three children in our borough living in poverty. “As parents ourselves, we know it can be tough and isolating, but it's unimaginably so for a parent who's really struggling to provide for their kids, so we want to make it as easy as possible for families to support each other in a sustainable and friendly

The money we raised from the crowdfunder has allowed us to get into brilliant shape for the opening. Our community has such a big heart. “We are really excited to have our first donation session on the horizon – we can take items like cots, moses baskets and buggies, as well as

Babies and parents who attended classes at Baby Sensory Dulwich went on a "wild west adventure" to raise money. The babies were sponsored to be dressed up in cowboy costumes and have fun with their parents. The money all goes to Tommy's, which raises money in order to research premature birth, miscarriage, and still birth.

It is estimated that one in four pregnancies in the UK ends in loss, and Tommy's raises money to combat this. Sensathon aims to raise £500,000 nationally, and typically surpasses this goal. "Sensathon is a great way for mums and dads to involve their babies in a good cause," Jane Brewin, the chief executive of Tommy's, said. "Tommy’s relies on the generosity and hard work of its supporters like Baby Sensory to continue its pioneering research to prevent pregnancy complications. We hope everyone taking part has an amazing time!" For more information go to www.tommys.org

N EW H EAD H EL P S P R IM AR Y ACHIEVE 'GOOD' RATING

By Katherine Johnston

katherine@southwarknews.co.uk

ST GEORGE’S Primary School in Camberwell is now rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted as inspectors praise teachers’ ‘imaginative’ approach.

The school on Coleman Road has made significant improvements since an Ofsted report in 2016 said the school required improvement, citing weaknesses in leadership, teaching and outcomes for pupils. But a change in management and some

creative teaching approaches has helped the school now achieve the ‘good’ rating in every area, including pupil behaviour and achievements, and early years provision. Inspectors also noted a classroom culture free from bullying, writing: “Kindness is important to pupils. They insist no one would ever be lonely in the playground because others would always look after them”, and diversity and inclusion was also fostered by a curriculum which “offers plenty of opportunities to challenge stereotypes”, such as science week when students

learned about female and minority ethnic scientists. Music teaching was described as ‘highcalibre’, with inspectors saying: “Pupils will be more than ready to play at the Royal Festival Hall later in the year.” St George’s head teacher Andrew Rojas was appointed on a temporary basis in September 2017. In April 2018, his position was confirmed as permanent. He said: “I have been enormously impressed with so many aspects of the school since I arrived and it is wonderful to see these reflected in

this report. “I would also like to say a huge thank you to the whole team of staff and governors who have displayed a fantastic level of hard work, dedication and commitment in order to ensure that we provide the best possible opportunities for the children of St George’s C of E Primary School. “We look forward to continuing to build on this very positive report and to ensure we continue to provide the very best possible education and care for your children, both now and in the future.”

The new building features green bricks and flashes of orange paint, representing the trees and the fox in the illustration The Fox in the Forest. The building centres around an atrium with a staircase that doubles as seating, meaning that there are more opportunities for children to learn outside of a classroom. “This provides us with great space and flexibility,” headteacher Helen Ingham said. “Before the new addition, we had 550 children crammed into one building,” she continued. “Space was a big issue.” At the opening ceremony Julia Woolf led workshops before presenting a signed copy of the illustration to members of the school council and Ms Ingham. The children also showed Harriet Harman MP and local councillors Vicki Mills and Renata Hamvas around the school. “The whole move has been a very positive experience for staff and for children,” Ms Ingham said.

Ilderton Primary children sing to elderly residents BERMONDSEY

A BERMONDSEY primary school choir is taking to the road to sing at local care homes.

Year 5 and Year 6 pupils from Ilderton Primary School perform a medley of wartime songs. Their first concert took place at the Bluegrove House on May 23. Residents were so impressed with the children’s performance they even sang along. After the concert there was a reception with refreshments, so the care home residents and the choir members could mingle. Bluegrove residents also gave each child a gift bag as a thank you. School staff organised the outreach in order to strengthen bonds with the surrounding community and to foster inter-generational connections. "I plan to have the children visit a number of homes to sing, read poetry, and to generally interact with members of the

community that they would not ordinarily meet," said Ms Reefer, one of the organisers at Ilderton. Ms Reefer said that she wants the children to have the opportunity to explore Bermondsey and to see what the community has to offer in terms of art, culture, and green space. The Ilderton Primary School choir is planning a tour of residential care homes in the area.


SCHOOLS UNITE TO FIGHT HIGH AIR POLLUTION

Southwark News, Thursday June 14 2018

By Simon Throssell

news@southwarknews.co.uk

SCHOOLS TACKLING air pollution across Southwark met at the Houses of Parliament last week to share their progress.

The cleaner air for Southwark schools group’s second meeting was held on Tuesday, June 5, at the Houses of Parliament and organised by Councillor Richard Livingstone, cabinet member for environment, transport management and air quality. The network, consisting of eleven Southwark schools, were invited by MP Helen Hayes, who highlighted the importance of pulling together to combat the problem, which has affected Southwark schools in the past, in an investigation previously reported by the News last year. The Greenpeace investigation found children at a number of Southwark

nurseries are at risk of being exposed to illegal levels of air pollution from diesel vehicles. The investigation revealed in April last year the dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) near 44 nurseries and preschools in the borough. The environmental organisation’s analysis of Government data showed Southwark, as a local authority, ranked the fifth highest in London for the number of nurseries within 150 metres of a road breaching the legal NO2 limit. The Dulwich and West Norwood MP explained how she believed that stopping engine idling and introducing a vehicle scrappage scheme would help to improve air quality, and further encouraged members to work alongside other local action groups to help bring about change at both a local and national level. Amy Foster, from Bessemer Grange Primary School, talked about her

school’s annual bike trip held every May, in which the children head to Dulwich Park to practise and learn with the Cycle Confident team. She also explained how the school close the road outside the entrance once a month on a Friday, in order to create a safe play-street outside for the children to play in. Like Ms Hayes, Amy was very passionate about tackling and improving air quality and road safety. Kimberly Hickman, from Goose Green

School, praised the role that parents, local businesses, the council, local MPs and many others have played in securing funding and installing green screens around the school. Goose Green Primary has also introduced an ‘eco warrior scheme’ for the children as well as a gardening club, with the aim of working towards achieving even better air quality. Speaking after the event, Cllr Livingstone said: “We heard inspiring stories about some of the excellent work

that is happening in Southwark’s schools to improve air quality for children in the borough. “It was great to see that schools want to pull together and help one another and I look forward to supporting their efforts. “I would encourage all Southwark schools to sign up and come along to future meetings.” If your school would liked to be involved in the future, please contact Signe Norberg at Signe.Norberg@southwark.gov.uk

and will be seen by more than 1000 pupils from Friday 15 to Friday 29 June 2018. Exploring the dangers and life-changing accidents that occur on roads, the play encourages the audience to choose their own ending to the scenario of a busy young teenager being distracted by ‘more important things’. The play also looks at the impact that serious injury and death can have upon the lives of young people, families and friends. The initiative is now in its second year of running, thanks to funding from

Newcomen Collett Foundation, London Bridge Building Communities and St Olave’s Foundation Fund. Director of Half Moon, Chris Elwell, commented: “We are delighted to be working with nine schools in Southwark to bring our performance of More Important Things to primary school children. “Road accidents can have a devastating effect on the lives of young people and their families and we are pleased to be working on a project that addresses this important issue.”

“I was told I wouldn’t get into Brit School because of my background but I did and that was another of the turning points,” he said. “To be able to go into a mainstream school and just to be able to do what I want to do, it really changed me as well and made me more confident.” Toshawn is currently studying a one-

year business apprenticeship at Salmon and has started up his own business – T Force Lighting and Sound. He now aspires to provide the same support to young people as he received himself.“I just want to take the business to the next level and help other children to get involved and turn their lives around,” he added.

“My advice to them would be to just find something to occupy yourself.“Try and find a youth club to go to just try to take your mind off things and see what support is available for you.” For more information about Salmon, visit: www.salmonyouthcentre.org Photo: Toshawn with London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Kicked out of six schools, this youngster wants to help others

By Chiara Giordano

chiara@southwarknews.co.uk

A YOUNGSTER who turned his life around and started his own business despite being kicked out of six different schools has credited his transformation to a Bermondsey youth centre.

When Toshawn Morgan was a child, his mother was often in and out of headteachers’ offices fighting for him not to be kicked out of school. The youngster, now 20, felt misunderstood and would get into fights with other pupils and have outbursts when teachers told him to do something. He had trouble reading and writing and it wasn’t until he was diagnosed with Asperger’s, dyslexia and global delay that things started to improve. At the age of about twelve or thirteen, Toshawn was sent to the Complete Works – an alternative education provider based in the Salmon Youth Centre building in Bermondsey – and soon got involved with Salmon, which is when his life changed for the better. “The diagnosis took a lot of stress off

mine and my mum’s shoulders,” said Toshawn, from East Dulwich. “For a long time my mum had been fighting to find out exactly what was wrong with me. “I felt like I now had an answer to give to people as to why I acted in certain ways. I felt empowered by it, in a way.“ When I first started at Salmon I was really, really bad and there were times when I was asked to leave the premises. “But my life changed a lot because there are a lot of staff there who want to help people and I was given lots of opportunities to volunteer and that’s when my life changed because I felt like I had someone that believed in me. “I’ve always had a technical mind but I didn’t have the outlet to express it until I was given the opportunity at Salmon. “I went from doing the spotlight to controlling all the lights on the big lighting desk, and then setting up the PA system.” Toshawn was later accepted into the prestigious BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, where the likes of singer Adele attended, graduating with a Level 2 Diploma in technical theatre and arts.

TO WIN IT BY A HAIR

EAST DULWICH

By Katherine Johnston

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS behind the world famous Afro Art series have visited Harris Academy East Dulwich to judge a writing competition about their images.

Kahran and Regis Bethencourt, from CreativeSoul photography, created their Afro Art series of portraits to celebrate the beauty of black hair and encourage children to embrace their curls and received international acclaim. When Harris Academy teacher Sarah Thompson saw their work last year, she decided to show the images to her photography A-Level class, to start a discussion about cultural identity, hair and skin. Ms Thompson, who is mixed race, remembers students being bullied because of their hair and skin when she was a school pupil. She said: "So many black and mixed race girls use powerful chemicals to straighten their hair from an early age. "I wanted girls to see that they have a choice and that their own natural appearance is beautiful." Ms Thompson wrote to the Afro Art photographers, Kahran and Regis, to ask if she could print out their pictures and display them at school, and they replied saying they would send some special prints for free. As well as showing the pictures to her class, Ms Thompson held a competition on the theme of 'identity', encouraging students to write about how the Afro Art images made them feel. Kahran and Regis were so impressed they decided to make a visit to judge the school's competition during a trip to the UK. They chose year thirteen student Ria Addison Gayle as the winner, and in recognition of her success, Ria was then invited to join the photographers on a recent photo shoot in London. Ria had written that she used to

straighten her hair to avoid comments like 'why is your hair like that?' and change its texture. In her winning entry she said: "On media platforms and the film industry there is a limited portrayal of the black community celebrating their natural beauty, and there is also a limited portrayal of dark skinned models and actors in the industry and to witness the [Afro Art] series of images is something very rare and striking.

"And on a personal level, these images have had a very powerful effect on my perception of beauty and if I had seen more images like this [when I was younger] it would definitely have had a positive effect on my self-esteem."

"It is one of our greatest accomplishments to know that our work has made a positive impact on so many young girls in the UK and the world.” Teacher Ms Thompson said:

“Identity and representation is something that is important to us all and so we always want to give our girls role models that they can look up to and be inspired by. “Afro Art, and our discussions with Kahran and Regis, have been an incredibly powerful and positive way of exploring what identity means for our students and we are so grateful that they were able to visit our academy.”

Nurses and carers are priced out of Southwark

I

N SOUTHWARK, like a lot of London boroughs, we are struggling to hire and retain nurses and care workers.

The facts are hard to deny, the cost of living in boroughs like Southwark has become too high for many key workers to stay. Last week I met with Jonty Heaversedge, the Chair of Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group. We discussed issues surrounding services in Southwark, including staff vacancy rates across the health service and acute trusts in the borough. The reasons for this are not new; for example, key workers such as care workers need to travel for work and so prefer to work close to their homes. The cost of living in Southwark has risen so much that many of our key workers are moving further and further out for more affordable lifestyles and applying for roles in these areas instead. As a result, we have consistently high vacancy rates across Southwark that urgently need addressing. The Government must acknowledge the problem and provide real solutions to the impact the cost of living is having on key workers throughout the NHS in inner London boroughs. With one-bedroom rented

Letters

properties averaging £1,300 per month - around three quarters of the take home pay for new nurses - it is not feasible to live here any longer. The result is an overstretched remaining work force and patients falling through the gaps. We urgently need more affordable rented properties and key-worker housing schemes across London. The Mayor’s introduction of London Living Rent properties is a step towards encouraging key workers to stay in boroughs like Southwark and I hope to see more developments providing London Living Rent homes emerging across London. I know the cost of travel for care workers is of major concern and it is a big reason why staff who must travel around for work prefer to live and work in the same area. During the Transport Plenary held in March this year, I asked the Mayor whether he was considering a reduced fare or free travel for care workers to make working and living in London as a carer more attractive. I was really pleased that Sadiq Khan responded positively and informed me that he has asked TfL to consider whether it would be possible to provide a ‘companion concession’, for people who have difficulty using public transport

independently. I hope to get an update on whether this could be feasibly implemented across the TfL network. As Labour’s London Assembly Transport Spokesperson, I will continue to bring this to the Mayor’s attention and push for ways to ease the cost of working and traveling for carers in London. The Royal College of Nursing warned us in 2016 that the cost of living in London would see four in ten London nurses leave the capital

by 2021. Britain’s exit from the EU is also expected to affect staffing levels. The impact this will have on the NHS’s ability to provide care for patients will be profound. The Government must do everything they can to ensure those who dedicated their working lives to keeping us well are supported and that the invaluable services nurses and care workers provide are not left under-resourced across our borough.

Why are cyclists getting prioritised over pedestrians?

I TRIED to walk towards the shopping centre along the southern pavement of New Kent Road only to be faced with an extraordinary situation – a serious accident waiting to happen.

The pavement has been largely sectioned off for Thames Water engineering works, leaving only a single person walking space along most of its extent. However signage appears to direct pedestrians to leave the pavement, seemingly to walk along New Kent Road itself. Cyclists however appear to be directed to use the remaining very narrow safe track on the pavement! And this is in spite of there not being sufficient room for them to pass one another. When I complained to an engineer I was informed that the signage was supposed to mean that pedestrians should cross to the northern pavement at the pedestrian crossing and then recross down by the shopping centre. The signage is not at all clear and in fact the engineer admitted that a large group of tourists from the nearby Rest-Up Hotel had recently misunderstood, like most other pavement pedestrians, and all walked in a group along the bus lane of this busy six lane super-highway! But why on earth should we pedestrians have to leave the safety of the pavement to prioritise cyclists anyway? Who on earth made this decision and on what grounds? The engineer informed me that Southwark council had and that TfL had decided to go along with it. This pavement is extremely busy with pedestrians most of the time – many vulnerable pensioners, wheelchair users, small children with

parents, hundreds of school children - all just trying to get to their destinations safely. But there has also been, for some time now, a ‘courtesy’ cycle lane along this pavement. I had assumed that as it was on a pavement, cyclists using this lane should always have been directed to prioritise pedestrians anyway. (Other boroughs have such signage on similar shared spaces). As I understand the planning concept of the ‘hierarchy of users,’ pedestrians are considered more vulnerable than cyclists and should always take precedence in difficult situations like this. This concept is commonly referred to in planning policy at borough, London and national levels. Further, in Southwark’s current Transport Plan we learned that only 4% of journeys are currently made using cycles. How have priorities been assessed in this current situation? The engineer I spoke to assured me that these works are to take at least eight weeks and probably longer. At the very least there needs to be a re-think as soon as possible before there’s a terrible accident. Celia Cronin, Elephant and Castle

We Lib Dems are fed up with Neil Coyle’s digs on housing

IN OUR local MP’s column View from Westminster (31st May) Neil Coyle once again predictably laid into the Liberal Democrats record in government between 2010-15 and when we ran the council between 2002-2010

What he equally predictably failed to do was provide a commentary on the failures of the three previous majority Labour governments. The reason the Liberal Democrats were unable to build more council homes when we were in

power locally was that the Labour government did not support a growth in council homes. Under Tony Blair councils of all political colours were effectively bribed to give up the direct management of their council stock, as the only way to secure additional funding, as they did in Labour controlled Lambeth. Does he remember the oft quoted statistic that the last Labour govt. built more prison cells than council homes? Furthermore the last Labour government positively encouraged the increase in house prices to fuel the economy, and did almost nothing to curb the excesses of buy to let. This on top of a policy of above inflation council rent increases, to bring them into line with housing association rents, only added to the housing failures of the previous Conservative governments between 1979-1997. No party is without blame for the housing crisis that has built up over the last forty years, but the idea that the housing crisis started in 2010 is revisionist politics worthy of Jeremy Corbyn! As Liam Byrne said in the note he left in the treasury draw in 2010 “I’m afraid to tell you there’s no money left” It’s time those in power spent less time critiquing the record of past administrations and spent more time reflecting on their own records, while ensuring their policies and actions are solving the housing crisis not adding to the failures of the last four decades. When we have almost 6,000 empty homes in our borough, almost a sixth of which are council properties, a turnaround time on average of 109 days for voids, major planning developments being consented without any affordable housing on site and a missed target of 1,500 new council homes by May 2018, there is much to reflect on! Cllr David Noakes, Acting Leader of Southwark Liberal Democrats Council Group

He said Mum you’ve got to listen, you’ve got to understand, God didn’t take me from you, he only took my hand. When I called out in pain that day, the instant that I died, he reached down and took my hand, and pulled me to his side. He pulled me up and saved me from the misery and pain, my body was hurt so badly inside, I could never be the same. My search is really over now, I’ve found happiness within, all my answers to my empty dreams and that might have been. I love you so and miss you so but I’ll always be nearby, my body’s gone forever, but my sprit will never die, and so you must go on now, live one day at a time.

New Artistic Director, Michelle Terry, appears in the eponymous role, presenting a melancholic, androgynous Prince that is as sulky and brooding as ever - the original emo teenager perhaps. Appearing dressed as sad clown, complete with Joker like smudged lipstick during Hamlet’s ‘mad’ phase is striking and allows Terry to behave differently, more franticly; her Hamlet is quite positively unhinged to say the least. The rest of the company are a joy to watch, rendering gender, race and disability irrelevant with equalitarian casting. Shubham Saraf’s Ophelia was played with grace and a stoic sensibility, and his palpable intensity created an emotional, raw performance. Richard Katz was genial as Polonius, taking the character from

wily politician to somewhat of a finicky fool, which fit the production well. A real highlight was the effortless incorporation of British Sign Language from most characters during the piece, with deaf actor Nadia Nadarajah as Guildenstern leading this significant inclusion. With the controversial departure of former artistic director Emma Rice and the tour de force that was Robert Icke’s Hamlet at the Almeida theatre, Terry was always going to have quite a lot to live up to. Has she done it? Perhaps not. It is too early to tell how Terry’s time at the Globe will pan out, but while there was little groundbreaking, or earth shattering, in terms of interpretation or delivery about this production, it was certainly accessible and enjoyable and the fluid, progressive casting is encouraging to see from a theatre that could so easily be swept into a preserved, stale state.

JAMES CLEMENTS remembers writing little plays that he could act out ‘with gusto’ as a small child, while forcing his ‘longsuffering sister to play the other character’. With parents who allowed the siblings to grow up doing anything they wanted as along as they were working hard and ‘not hurting anyone’, it is no surprise that James still now writes and acts, writes Michael Holland.

After growing up in Glasgow, James moved to London when he was eighteen, then, a year later, to New York to study

drama, film acting and history. Seven years on he still lives there, in Brooklyn, which, he tells me, reminds him of Glasgow. While studying, James met Ana, Jorge and Sam and the four together formed What Will The Neighbors Say (www.wwtns.org). He says: ‘We started this theatre company so we could create work that we wanted to do, about issues that mattered to us, on our terms. So, for me, it's an amazing opportunity to do both of the things I love, [because] being an actor feels quite powerless, so I can satisfy my controlfreak tendencies when I write!’ The playwright’s tendencies have recently been satisfied by The

Katie Kelly.

Vanessa Kirby as Julie, fresh from a brilliant performance in The Crown, holds attention from the first to last. At risk of being type cast, she has escaped one gilded cage for another. This is Princess Margaret on steroids, or rather Xanax and cocaine.

Morton’s book, ‘Princess Diana, Her True Story in Her Own Words’, which he has written and will also play the role of Morton. He is quick to defend Diana and explain why he chose this subject: ‘I love writing about incredibly complex figures. On a sort of superficial level, it’s very easy to dismiss her, to note her incredible, privileged life, her self-indulgence, but, at the end of the day, she mattered - and I think there is something very sexist and academic and high-andmighty about dismissing her as vapid, and everyone she impacted on as an idiot. To me, she went to war with the army she had, which you have to respect.’ The Diana Tapes will first open in New York and the American cast are already workshopping the script and trying out their characters’ accents in bars and restaurants to see if they can fool the staff. ‘It gets harder after a few drinks,’ jokes Clements. Giving James the last word he said this: ‘We are interested in unpacking this complicated icon, showing both her good and her bad side, her flaws and her virtues. It’s not some cheesy biopic - it's a piece about a real human being who had an extraordinary life.’

The Diana Tapes is on at The Stockwell Playhouse, 208 Wandsworth Road, SW8 2JU from June 26th - July 13th. Times: Tues - Sat 7.30pm; Sat 4pm; Sun 6pm. Admission: £14, £12 concs. Phone: 0207 720 6897. www.ticketsource.com

WHAT’S ON 23

Lonely and desperate Julie moves from petulant displays of power towards the staff who attend her, towards a much more dangerous game as she seduces her father’s driver, Jean. She has bitten off much more than she can chew though, and as the power passes back and forth between them, she is the eventual loser, with devastating results. As someone who works with women who are criminalised and vilified for their trauma-induced drug misuse, I was surprised to find myself able to sympathise with the mentally fragile Julie. Though the challenge issued to her by Jean - “I can see that you have always been miserable, but I don’t understand you. I don’t have the luxury of being sad like you” -could be legitimately voiced by the hundreds of women in British prisons who couldn’t afford The Priory, it still feels tough, directed at a woman who is so haunted by the discovery of her dead mother’s body. Perhaps in our increasingly divided society there is a plea here to

Diana Tapes, a play based on Andrew our shared humanity. The set is brilliant, a very post millennial take on upstairs downstairs: minimalist kitchen in the forefront and animalistic rave coming and going from the floor above. The energy from the dancing revellers thumps through the first half, but as the movement slows down and presence of this chorus diminishes, the tension heightens to the terrible denouement. On the first night a fight broke out in the audience in the final moments. I would have been quite glad of the distraction as the stage and tragic birthday girl slid slowly out of sight. Polly Stenham’s Julie will be screened on 6 September, as part of the NT live series. It would be fascinating to see the relationship between the three central characters, Julie, Jean and the dignified maid, Kristina, play out close up. It will need to come with a trigger warning though if you’re a fan of budgies. I’ll leave that there. It’s a short play, which means a lot gets

hinted at and not explored. The relationship between mostly white, rich Londoners, and their mostly BAME staff, is showcased but the only real depth is brought to the issue by Kristina, played beautifully by Thalissa Teixeira, in her final speech to Julie. She berates her for stealing not just her fiancée but her dignity. Yet, this very dignity allows her to walk away from the mess that Julie cannot escape. I confess to being ignorant of the famous play by Strindberg that inspired Polly Stenham’s Julie, which might not impress serious theatre goers but may encourage others to see this play on its own merits. Whether in the theatre or at the cinema, this is worth a watch. Julie is on at the National Theatre, South Bank, SE1 9PX until September 8th. Times: 7.30pm, Thur & Sat matinees 2.30-pm. Admission: £15 - £50. Phone: 0207 452 3000. www.nationaltheatre.org.uk

Camberwell on camera By Chiara Giordano

AN AUTHOR who grew up photographing Camberwell as it changed around him has released a book of images capturing how the area developed over the years.

history

EACH YEAR since 2003 local people have been voting for the people, events and places they have felt worthy of a blue plaque.

The scheme came about after the ‘News’ approached English Heritage to get more of our history recognised, only to be told that most of our buildings would not qualify as they were destroyed in the blitz and post war era. Working in partnership with Southwark Heritage Association and Southwark Council, over 50 of our own blue plaques have been erected. Nominations for this year is now open. Below is the complete voting list, area by area. The voting card can be found on the Southwark Heritage Association website – www.southwark.org.uk or email news@southwarknews.co.uk with your nomination as the subject. Or send us the following to Southwark News, Unit A302, Tower Bridge Business Complex, Clement’s Road, London, SE16 4DG: Eligible nominations will go out to the public poll later in the year.

his family and friends still lived there. “I carried on photographing what was being lost and I was just appalled because the area that meant so much to me as a youngster had just changed,” he said. “If it wasn’t for solitary surviving structures you would not know where you were; all that’s left to remind you there was a canal there is the iron bridge. “You just can’t imagine what it had once been like.” Brazil, who has written eight books, also intends to publish a book about the paranormal history of Camberwell this autumn. Camberwell from Old Photographs, published by Amberley, can be bought online at Amazon or in major book stores in Camberwell for RRP £14.99.

Photos: Eddie Brazil

Eddie Brazil, now 62, moved to England from Ireland with his parents and five brothers when he was a young child and ended up living in his grandmother’s house in Rainbow Street, Camberwell, after his mother sadly died. One of his brothers gave him a camera and, having noticed the area was already beginning to change, he began photographing the surroundings and people around him from the early 1970s. “Back in 1973 I could see all the Victorian houses were being demolished to make way for Burgess Park – and eventually the lake and the housing estates – and I thought it was going to be changing and would never be the same again,” said Eddie, who is also a paranormal investigator. “Most of the houses they demolished were perfectly sound and a lot of people were not very happy to see them demolished and then to see the North Peckham and Gloucester Grove estates built in their place. “Following the end of the last war that part of London and southeast London suffered a lot of bomb damage so I understand they wanted to make a better life for these hard-pressed people and those North Peckham and Gloucester Grove estates looked good on paper and in model form. “I was lucky because I lived in a house in Rainbow Street but most of my friends moved on to those estates and North Peckham became one of the most violent in Britain. “The way the flats were structured, they had the bedrooms on the ground floor and the kitchens and on the floor above it and the families had to board up their windows with plywood to stop people breaking in during the day.” The writer and photographer said what he loved most about growing up in Camberwell was the “community spirit and camaraderie”. “All my friends lived in the streets around me – we all lived within about two minutes of each other,” he said. “I loved the old canal and St George’s Church and you used to get so many wonderful characters when the barge came up the canal. “There used to be hundreds of pubs in the area but they all closed; there used to be the Queen public house and it was the only building left in the whole street as the park developed around it.” Brazil later moved to Buckinghamshire with his wife in 1984 but regularly visited Camberwell when

elair House is under new management but this team are determined not to make the mistakes that have been made in the past, writes Michael Holland.

Gabriel, who was the man in charge when Nina and I went for lunch, told us all about the future plans involving film nights, BBQs, live jazz from the bands that play at Ronnie Scott’s, wine tastings and, of course, top notch food. There is a choice of two menus Continental and Indian - and both looked amazing. After a little dithering we opted for the Indian, and before long we had popadum, chutneys, sparkling water, lager and wine arranged between us. The popadum were different from the usual offerings and had a nice spicy kick to them. Through the windows we could see people enjoying the sun, the BBQ and music in Belair’s leafy grounds. Inside, Gabriel was passionate about telling us of Belair’s mission to be more than just a restaurant, though he focussed on how the chefs cook everything from scratch and use no colourings or preservatives. The proof was in the cooking when our starters arrived. The lamb chops were amongst the best I have ever had; thick, juicy, pink in the centre, and flavoursome. And then there were the Kothmiri Scallops. These beauties were to do die for. Gabriel explained that all the food is marinated to get the flavours in, and the extra taste the marination added to this shellfish was incredible. The first course put this restaurant right up there with the best in the borough. And beyond. Belair House is a wonderful Georgian mansion that affords the feel of the countryside while being just minutes from the south circular. Its tall windows allow lots of natural light in to brighten up the large rooms. There is an an air of majestic decadence about the place. After a decent interval a trolley with the main courses was wheeled in. The Konkani Ratan was like a curried seafood stew, chockfull of plump prawns, white fish and scallops. Delicious. The Kolapuri Chicken included chunks of perfectly cooked meat in a sauce

THE DAMAGE

Belair House is a wonderful Georgian mansion that affords the feel of the countryside, while being just minutes from the south circular. where each individual flavour could be recognised - the cloves, the cinnamon, the ginger all complemented each other other rather than battled it out for first place. We were impressed. I was by now quite full and quite ready to go home and lay on the settee for the remainder of the Sunday, but Nina was having none of it: ‘What kind of a reviewer are

you that does not sample and discuss the food from all three courses?’ She then ordered a double espresso, a cognac and Passion Fruit Panna Cotta with Berry Compote! For herself! ‘And what about you? Order something,’ she ordered. ‘I can’t eat and drink on my own. I had a little vanilla ice cream

because I can always find room for ice cream. Belair House was a real treat. The decor and surroundings are extravagant so you can really spoil yourself here for those special occasions. But, at the same time, you can quite easily have beers and fries in the bar or outside in the sunshine. It is a place for socialising at all levels.

Hayemaker hangs up his gloves for good

By Jake Sanders

news@southwarknews.co.uk

FORMER WORLD heavyweight champion David Haye has announced his retirement from professional boxing after fifteen years in the sport.

The Bermondsey based boxer lost his final fight to Tony Bellew in May, in what was a rematch after losing their original bout in March 2017. He finished with a record of 28 wins from his 32 fights. Haye, who attended Bacon’s College in Rotherhithe, was a world champion at cruiserweight and heavyweight, with his biggest win coming in Nuremberg when he defeated 7ft Russian Nikolay Valuev in 2009 to win the WBA title. The Hayemaker had initially retired in 2011 but he returned to the ring and convincingly beat Mark de Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj at the O2 Arena before losing twice to Bellew. Haye said: “Thanks to boxing, I have been able to live my unencumbered childhood dream. “The dream I achieved when I beat WBA Heavyweight Champion of the

World Nikolay Valuev, the sevenfoot-two, 150-kilogram ‘Beast from the East’, in a real life ‘David and Goliath’ match. “Lifting that World Heavyweight Championship meant I’d fulfilled a promise I’d made to my mum, Jane, at the age of three. That was an incredibly proud moment for me and my family and friends. “Thank you to all my loyal family, and all of ‘Team Haye’, my extended family, who helped me through these tough years. “To my fans, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your kind support always meant the world to me, and I won’t forget the many great nights we shared.”

DULWICH NARROWLY failed to defend a total of 86 in a low scoring Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Walton on Thames as they were defeated by one wicket.

The home side were put in to bat and were one-down early on as Ed Stolle was lbw to Matt Nichols in the third over. Guy Skinner and George Pearson grafted steadily until both fell to the same bowler before Matt Marfani and Salaar Waqar steadied the ship, adding 32 runs in 12 overs. Waqar gifted his wicket away and then Marfani was disastrously run out in the next over to leave Dulwich

SURREY WENT top of the County Championship table with a comfortable win at Hampshire by an innings and 58 runs.

This victory had followed a disappointing exit from the Royal London Cup, despite a win against Glamorgan last week. Will Jacks (80), and captain Rory Burns (68) took the batting honours, whilst Ricky Clarke was the pick of the bowlers with 3-48.

Surrey’s trip to the Ageas Bowl proved a success with the consistent Burns (151) making a hundred against an international bowling attack that included Dale Steyn, Fidel Edwards and Kyle Abbott. There were also good contributions from wicketkeeper Ben Foakes (90) and Ollie Pope (41). Another outstanding bowling performance from Clarke with match figures of 7-83, Morne Morkel 3-37 and the promising Amar Virdi 3 –23. Surrey will take confidence from this performance as they bid to win their first County Championship pennant since 2002.

60-5. Wicketkeeper Will Bancroft fell without scoring, and only four runs came from the next 11 overs as Jon Lodwick and Kamran Munawar dug deep. Munawar finally got off the mark after 35-balls without scoring but the hosts lost both Lodwick and Assan Crawford-Khan to leave them in trouble. Patrick George helped Alex Gledhill add 12 for the last wicket to take the Dulwich score to 86 all out. A.Bainbridge finished his 14 overs with 4-25, and Botha bowled 11.4 overs while taking two wickets and conceding just seven runs. Waqar and

Marfani were the only men to reach double figures, and the latter’s 19 would prove to be the highest score of the match. Walton started in similar fashion as Crawford-Khan struck twice early on, removing skipper Dan Roberts for 8, and the dangerous Botha for 13, to reduce Walton to 34-2 in the tenth over. James Madoc-Jones and Sam Gorvin seemed to be cruising towards victory with a stand of 18 in 5.4 overs before both fell in successive overs to leave the visitors 71-5 after 26 overs. Stolle then made an inspired decision by recalling recall Lodwick, and he responded by taking two

Tokei judo veterans bring back the medals

FRED ITIOSE won gold on a successful day for Tokei as they claimed three medals at the High Wycombe Masters event in Buckinghamshire.

The older players from Tokei judo club had their opportunity to compete on 26 May at the High Wycombe master’s event. This was a judo competition specifically targeted at players over the age of 35. Success was expected for Itiose, who is a former Commonwealth Games silver medallist. Itiose lived up to expectations and made short work of all his opponents in the +100kg category. He won all his contests quickly and decisively, with none going the distance. In addition to picking up the gold medal, it was a very good day for Itiose as he was able to secure the last twenty points required for his promotion to 4th Dan. Neno Avelov also achieved success in the U81kg category, picking up a bronze and the last ten points needed for his promotion to 3rd Dan with what was probably the throw of the day - a spectacular sacrifice throw wheeling his opponent high above him into the air. Simon Rose capped a great day for Tokei as claimed the bronze in the U90kg category. wickets with his first two balls. Walton had lost four wickets for just five runs and at 72-7 still required 15 runs for victory. Bainbridge and Jamie Mann added nine runs before Gledhill trapped the former leg-before to make it 81-8. Lodwick removed Mann but lastman Luke Minshull took a single to level the scores and then hit the second ball of the next over to the boundary to secure victory for his side. Gledhill finished with 3-20 off 11.2 overs, while Lodwick had 3-18 off ten.

MILLWALL 37


JAMIE PHILPOT: I JUST LOVE PLAYING FOOTBALL

38 MILLWALL

www.newsatden.co.uk

EXCLUSIVE

By Jake Sanders

news@southwarknews.co.uk

JAMIE PHILPOT came through the ranks at Millwall - signing his first professional contract in 2015 when he was just 18.

He impressed for the Under-23s and was rewarded with his first-term debut against Wolves on the final day of the 2014/2015 season. Philpot would waste no time in making an impact as he prodded home just minutes after coming on to get Millwall back into the game. The 21-year-old was replaced just minutes later through injury in a game the Lions would go on to lose 4-2 at Molineux. He would have to wait another ten months to appear for the first-term again and spent the whole of last season on-loan in the National League at Woking and Welling United. He was released by Millwall at the end of the season. Philpot talks us through his time at the club, ‘that’ goal at Wolves, his love for the game and life after Millwall.

How would you sum up

Southwark News, Thursday June 14 2018

your time at Millwall?

Jamie Philpot: I have had a lot of ups and downs. 95% of it was excellent and enjoyable, but 5% was disappointing. Overall, I am leaving here with a positive mindset and I appreciate what the manager has done for me. I will look back at it with mixed emotions. Leaving gives me the chance to go elsewhere and play regular football, which is exactly what I need to do.

What was your relationship like with Neil Harris?

I have known the gaffer and Livers [David Livermore] for quite a while now. I think I built up a good rapport with him and in my first year he was the Under-23s manager. During that year I built up even more of a relationship and I think we got on very well. I have got nothing but respect for him and all our coaching staff. When I left he told me I have got to believe in myself and work back up again. He said I have got the talent and it’s just a case of me proving it to everyone else. He said I need to get a season of playing under my belt and go from there.

Did you have to train harder than anyone else to try and stand out?

When I trained with the first-team, I was more wary and knew I must concentrate more. When in possession of the ball you don’t want to be the one that gives the ball away, causing the other team to score, or in front of goal you don’t want to be the one that misses a chance. But, that’s the pressure I like and especially in training because it makes you a better player.

How much did you learn off Steve Morison and Lee Gregory?

I learnt a lot from them - especially Gregory’s movement and hold-up play. And from Morison, his ability to get into defenders’ heads. He isn’t the quickest anymore, not like he was at Millwall a few years ago when I used to watch him, but I picked up on his intelligence.

What do you remember about your debut against Wolves in 2015?

There was a real buzz about it. It didn’t really sink in until a few days after the game. I was 18 at the time and I came on and scored and my celebration was like it was just another game. It felt like a normal goal. Obviously, it wasn’t a normal goal, it

was in front of 26,000 people. We were losing 3-1 at the time and we had already been relegated, so it didn’t really matter that much. But it was a good moment.

What motivates you?

I just love playing football. I genuinely just love going to the training ground every day. When I was at Millwall, report times were 9am for the Under-23s and 9:45am for the firstteam. Pretty much 95% of the time, I was in at 8am. Not because I was being busy, I just love it. I love being in the gym and wanting to improve.

the Championship. The path has been done been done before, so if I do have to drop down then it can be done again. I know it’s an old cliché, but I have to concentrate on my football, work hard, stayed focused and keep believing.

The manager likes to give chances to the young players, especially as it’s a relatively small squad. I was happy for them that they are doing well, but you are just waiting for that chance for yourself. Everyday in training I tried to prove it to the management, that I can do what they have done.

What did you learn from your time playing in the National League?

It made me realise how lucky I was at Millwall. I enjoyed my time at Woking, they are a great bunch of lads. Ruthlessness was key there and I think that’s what I must improve on. The NonLeague standard has improved massively from what people think and a

It’s a long process. I am waiting for the right club to come in and see what they say and see what their plans are. I need a club similar team to Millwall and the style that they play - with two upfront. I would like to stay in the league, but if it means going to the National League and playing a season there, like I did last season at Woking and Welling then so be it. If a League Two club comes in for me and say they want me second or third choice in a front-two, then that’s a possibility. I must wait and see over the next few weeks.

"To give a centre-half their debut in the Championship isn't easy, especially as we were predicted to go down last season. If I look at it from a selfish point of view, I wanted to play, but the manager’s job is to make sure Millwall Football Club do the best they can. "In hindsight, if we were in League One, I would have played a lot more, but I am a religious person and believe that it's part of the journey. I believe there is a reason for everything. "A football career isn't made in one season. This is not the only season that I am going to have in football. Being in the Championship did help me, though. We signed better players, meaning I trained with better players and had better experiences. Mbulu looked back to when he signed for Millwall from Brentwood Town in 2015 and what him made him choose the Bermondsey based side. He continued: "There were a few clubs watching me - Norwich, Dagenham & Redbridge and Colchester, so I knew I would get a club, but I always knew about Millwall's reputation about having a great fan base and at the time, I wanted to stay in London. They were one of the biggest clubs in London that was realistic for me to join." "When I joined, my first eight months, I was flying. I was training well. I made my first first-team squad and it was very surreal because it was my first season as a professional footballer. It all happened so quickly and then I suddenly got injured. "My ankle injury stopped my momentum. I came back and had a knee problem. It was a massive low for me." Mbulu’s injuries prevented him from making his debut in the Checkatrade Trophy. Neil Harris used the competition as an opportunity to play the youngsters, but Mbulu was sidelined throughout the whole of the group stage in 2016/2017 and by the time he had returned, the Lions had excited. There was one game that stood out for the 21-year-old - Luton Town away in November 2016. Fellow Under-23 teammates Harry Smith, Byron Farrell and Paul Rooney were all handed their debuts at Kenilworth Road, whilst Mbulu watched on. He missed six-months in total with the serious knee problem and once he was fit again, he was loaned out to National League side Braintree Town, where he would

make just three appearances. Mbulu said: "I remember one match so clearly. It was Luton Town, when Smithy [Harry Smith] scored twice. All the youngsters were playing, and I was sitting there in the stands, thinking, that could be me. I just looked at it as it wasn't my time. "I had good people around me, even the senior pros at the club, they helped me. They are good people and gave me good advice. Some days were tough. "Webbie [Byron Webster] used to help me. He used to say, 'never too high, never too low'. That is one of the biggest things I learnt at Millwall. Webby was always smiling, always in a good mood after his injury and I realised that you should never let these things get you down. He said: "When me and the gaffer had a conversation at the end of the season, he said next year he wants me to be playing firstteam football and he doesn't think I will get that opportunity at Millwall. Straight away, he said, League One." "I wouldn't want to drop down three or four leagues just because I know I'll definitely be playing firstteam football. I always want to test myself as much as I possibly can. That's the kind of person I am. "I have been on the bench for a Championship club. I would always want to go as high as possible. I am too inexperienced for the Championship, but I know I am ready for League One or League Two. "I think the difference between Under-23s football and first-team football, is mentally. I see the mentality of some of the youngsters coming through - it's a bit different to mine. "You are taught in men's football to be ruthless, in both boxes. There is money on the line. When you're a kid, you play for the sake of playing. When you're 1-0 up in a game in first-team football, it needs to stay 1-0, it means something.”

Harris keen to bring Marshall back permanently EXCLUSIVE

By Jake Sanders

news@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL ARE in talks to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Ben Marshall on a permanent deal. The 27-year-old spent the second half of last season on-loan at The Den and became an instant hit with the Lions fans after a

string of impressive performances during their 17game unbeaten run. Marshall started 16 Championship games for Millwall and was involved in eight goals, scoring three and providing five assists. His stunning long-range strike in the 2-0 victory over Barnsley in March was voted as the club’s Goal of the Season. Marshall has two-years left on his current contract at the Premier League side after signing a three-

and-a-half-year deal when he signed from Blackburn Rovers in 2017 and the Millwall boss is keen to bring him back to SE16. Neil Harris said: "Ben did really well for us. He has got two-years left on his contract and yes, I have spoken to Wolves regarding his situation and made it clear we are interested in him. "Wolves are a different level now, they are a Premier League club and I think they are going to be a top-half Premier League club.

"Getting players out is never easy and Marsh has to work out where his future lies at Wolves first. "He did really well for us onloan and it’s a calibre of player we really like, it's just whether we can mix in those markets at the moment." The fee is reported to be around the £1million mark, which would break Millwall’s record transfer if they can complete the deal. It would be their first signing of the summer.

The former Lions defender was released at the end of the season and will officially leave when his contract expires on June 30th. He did not make a single first-team appearance during his time in SE16, but Mbulu was a substitute on a handful of occasions under Neil Harris, most recently against Derby County in January. "I like to think of my time at Millwall as a learning experience. It was my first professional club, so it was all about learning and developing as a player and a man." Mbulu said. "I went there as a 19-year-old boy and in terms of playing style, I was still a child. I grew up at Millwall. I learnt how to behave inside and outside of football. I always thought I was good, but when I went there it made me open my eyes as to how good you must be to become a good professional. I think Millwall taught me a lot and improved me as a player." Mbulu admitted that the promotion to the Championship was an amazing achievement for the club but didn't necessarily help him on a personal level. He played just seven minutes in preseason last year and was pushed further down the pecking order by the signing of Jake Cooper from Reading, leaving him as fifth choice centre-back. "One thing I can say about Neil Harris - he is very honest. You can speak to him or he will talk to you and be very honest." Mbulu said. "I think the problem for me was - is that I was improving, but the team was also improving. In my position [centre-back], it was very hard for me to break into the first-team. The gaffer would tell me that it's difficult to give me game time. "I do think that the gaffer wanted to give me an opportunity, but at the times I could have been given one, I was injured, or something got in the way. "I was there for three seasons and you know yourself when the gaffer wants to play you and when he doesn't. There was a period when everyone got their firstteam debut in the Checkatrade Trophy, but I was injured. Timings always seemed to be bad. Continues on page 39...
