Have you had your vaccination yet?

      There’s loads of information about vaccination on the local NHS website at https://selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine/     After a year of stop-start lockdowns and restrictions on our lives, we are all hoping the vaccination programme will mean that we can begin to return to normal and meet up with our friends and family. But not just yet. There’s a lot of people still to be vaccinated and nobody knows what effects the variants and mutations will have. What we do know is that the vaccine is safe and will save thousands of lives. The Government’s Roadmap explaining the four stages for slowly coming out of lockdown can be found here In the meantime let’s all

Census 2021

        A message from the Census – Census Day has now passed. You must fill in your census, if you haven’t already. Whatever your needs, there are support services to help you. If you need help, visit www.census.gov.uk or call 0800 141 2021. Sunday March 21 marked the day that millions of people across England and Wales completed key questions about themselves and their households to ensure local services in every community are informed by the best information possible. However, for those who have not yet submitted their online or paper questionnaires or have maybe misplaced their invitation letter, there is lots of help available.   “The information you provide needs to be about who usually lives in your household on Census Day, which was Sunday March 21, however if you’ve haven’t completed it yet, please do so – there’s still time to,” the Office for National…

2020 Kids’ Summer Activity Scheme

  Our Community Centre locked down in the middle of March and was closed until the end of July, when we were able to partially reopen to welcome over 30 local children to our Summer of Food and Fun, a programme funded by the Mayor’s Office for London in conjunction with Kitchen Social and Lambeth and Southwark Councils, which provided free freshly-cooked hot meals and healthy snacks, as well as a range of educational, creative and fun activities on Mondays and Tuesdays during the school holidays.   Shannon and her team from Simply Smiley Productions were on hand to lead the fun, and making imaginative use of hula-hooped measured social distancing managed to successfully manoeuvre their way through the government’s rules and regulations (let alone guidance and advice) much to everyone’s delight and applause.   We were pleased to receive grant funding to cover food and part of our costs.…
