Swede or neep, aka turnip, rutabaga … a versatile veg often referred to as pig fodder yet loaded with vit A, vit C and a rich source of fibre, calcium and potassium! But how to prepare it? Daffodils are already flowering, so here's a winter story while there's still a bit of 2014 winter left … and one which suggests a few swede recipes!
One more chance to view Picturehouse Group's plans for St Thomas More Hall at 116 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, tomorrow Sat. March 8th between 10am-1pm. We went along on Tuesday night and noted an ambitious plan for 3 screens - see adjacent pictures plan panels (there more than 16, none as yet online anywhere else). Picturehouse advertised special cinema in architecturally interesting places and with it a revamp to suit site and aesthetics. Audio in particular. Interesting history of area cinema, includes information about old area cinemas, i.e. the old Lordship Lane "CINO", a silent movie cinema virtually over the road from the St Thomas More Hall site which came down after WWI. Gourmet Burger Kitchen is said to sit on that very site today. The exihibition coincides with Picturehouse's pre-planning application with Southwark Council and exhibition attendees are urged to feedback on site.

Looks like there could soon be a new Picturehouse cinema at 116 Lordship Lane, East Duwich. Currently there are local Picturehouses in Brixton (Ritzy), Clapham and Greenwich. Locals to the area have had flyers through their doors noting a pre-planning public exhibition over proposals for a Dulwich Picturehouse at the historic site of St Anthony's Church and former St Anthony's School:
Please come along to our informal exhibition at St Thomas More Hall, Lordship Lane, SE22.
Tuesday 4 March between 6:30pm and 9:30pm Saturday 8 March between 10:00am and 1:00pm
We have now started our pre-planning application dialogue with Southwark Council and would love to share our ideas with you.
We look forward to seeing you on one of the above dates - we hope you will be as excited about our plans as we are!
'After the flood: how the waters brought Herne Hill together' is an interesting Brixton Blog post from 3 weeks ago which describes the enormity of the flood in Herne Hill last August and the scope of damage. It features interviews with many affected traders, going behind the scenes to describe frustration with Thames Water and local government, but also depicts a galvanising, fighting spirit which has helped the area get back on its feet.
Hey Herne Hillians! Help us make the Herne Hill Music Festival better than ever! We're looking for 2 extra people to help out. We need someone to take minutes at our meetings and draw up agendas. We also need someone to look after our membership list and mailing list. You'd also be able to take part in discussing and helping to decide future Festivals. If you think you can help out, we'd really love to hear from you! Send an email to: Secretary@hernehillfestival.org
Work proceeds on restoration of the Brockwell Park clock-tower. Gillett & Johnston engineers removed the dials of the clock-tower last Thusday, 13 February. It's a beautifully made structure but, as you can see from the photographs, over the decades the weather has had a real effect. Read words and see pictures by Theresa Hoare @HerneHillSoc blog:
