Massive thanks go out to all the incredible Herne Hill Forum volunteers for their time, hard work and cold toes. We REALLY couldn't have done it without you!
A new exhibition recently covered in The Guardian argues that a ‘landscape first’ approach to urban development could make our cities more resilient to flooding through innovative water management. An aerial photo of a green-roofed Herne Hill Highline features as part of this (http://bit.ly/14p106K) and is also one of the more eye-catching schemes within the Lost Effra Project and developed with The Urban Wild Project http://theurbanwildproject.org/. London Wildlife Trust, which implemented the Lost Effra Project for which funding is now complete, has just released a free, new guide titled 'Living with Rainwater' which shows how Herne Hillians can reduce local flood risk while creating natural spaces of benefit to people and wildlife.
You can now read Herne Hill (issue #129), the magazine of the Herne Hill Society, online via high resolution and zoomable scans. Stories include "New Ideas for the Half Moon," "Combating Crime in Brockwell Park," notes on the English Heritage award for restoration of the Brockwell Park clocktower, a review of the Lost Effra Project (community-based water management strategy launched by London Wildlife Trust and commissioned by DEFRA and the Carnegie UK Trust) and Shelley Silas recounts the Fun Palace at the Lido.
