Community Pride finalists announced
165 nominations were made for this year’s Community Pride awards (after double checking all Borough based). Council residents make up finalists in the following categories:
- resident of the year
- bringing your neighbourhood together
- young resident of the year
- best private garden
- best community garden
- best food growing project
In the best private garden category all four finalists are Council residents so well done those residents.
The judging was done by independent panels consisting of Incredible Edible Lambeth, the London Gardens Society and the Mayor’s Panel who included the Fire and Police Borough Commanders, High Trees Community Development Trust, South London Islam Centre as well as local councillors. The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony being held at the Kia Oval.
TRA of the month
Southwyck House TRA held an excellent health and well being event on August bank holiday Saturday featuring drummers, dancing, face painting, health advice, and massaging in their community facility on Moorlands Road, Brixton.
The TRA are very keen to ensure the community facility, (in their case a converted garage area) is used for the benefit of all residents and will look to follow up this event soon. We wish them well!
