With the petitions starting to go out yesterday, there has been a good response to the proposal to reduce the Poet's Corner controlled parking hours from 8 hours a day to 2.
This would mean that guests and tradespeople visiting our homes would have most of the day to park for free.
There are petition forms to sign in The Flower Shop, Herne Hill Books, and the Blackbird Bakery. We still however could do with some help collecting signatures door-to-door. If you think you could help by agreeing to collect signatures among your friends and neighbours, it would be a great help. Please contact me via email@example.com

HERNE HILL MARKET SUPPORTS LOCAL TEENAGERS
On Sunday 6th April, the 25th Camberwell Scouts and Dulwich Explorers will have a fundraising stall at Herne Hill Market to raise funds for a trip to Tanzania in August this year. The stall has been arranged for the Scouts with the kind support of the Herne Hill Forum and City & Country Farmers’ Markets who manage Herne Hill market.
The Tanzania trip they are fundraising for is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity for these local teenagers who will be helping to build schools in two villages, Chitemo and Nyanilha, decorating at Queen Esther’s school in Mpwapwa which gives girls the chance of an education, assisting at an orphanage plus also supporting Tanzanian Scout groups.
The Scouts and Explorers’ stall on Sunday will be bringing a traditional village fete experience to the market. The main attraction will be the candy floss which the Scouts will be ‘spinning’ on the day but there will also be fun activities for people to take part in and win prizes – including ‘Guess the Number of Sweets in the Jar’, throwing pingpong balls in jars and guessing if the next playing card is higher or lower in the Scouts’ version of Play Your Cards Right.
Susan Perolls, a parent helper at 25th Camberwell Scouts and Dulwich Explorers, comments, “We would like to thank Herne Hill Market – it’s fantastic that they are supporting local teenagers in this way. The Explorers have been busy raising money for the trip and the stall on Sunday will be a great way to add to their funds and also involve the local community in what they are doing. We hope to see lots of people coming to the market on Sunday and enjoying the fun of the fete while supporting a good cause.”

This Weekend, the Society for the Protection of Unwanted Objects has it's first Birthday. James has been in his shop, 125 Dulwich Road, helping those unwanted and homeless objects to find a new home, probably in our homes, back where they first started many years ago.
Pop in and wish the Emporium a Happy Birthday!
