Bits and pieces

Excellent post about the proposed Library Closure on the Blackheath Village Residents Group website.

A recent Blackheath Society email had some suggestions about what you can do to apply pressure, if you don’t want your library to close:

You can write to the Mayor and to councillors to express your view.

The decision is ultimately one to be made by the Mayor, so we would encourage members to contact him (his email address is steve.bullock@lewisham.gov.uk) and also your councillors (Cllr_Christopher.Maines@lewisham.gov.uk ; Cllr_Kevin.Bonavia@lewisham.gov.uk; Cllr­_Amanda.deryk@lewisham.gov.uk ) and Heidi Alexander, the Lewisham East MP (heidi.alexander.mp@parliament.uk).   Greenwich residents may wish to contact their Councillors.

As well as mentioning the next Blackheath assembly meeting, on Monday 19th July, at 1930 in St Matthews Academy, which I suspect might be slightly more heated than the previous ones…

There’s a new Blackheath Village Library Users Group newsletter too, which is difficult to track down unless you’re on the Society’s email list, and only opens in Word, so I’ve reprinted it here (hope that’s ok – email me if it isn’t).

Also:  Provender (the veggie cafe near O’Neil’s) has closed, but will be replaced by a crepe/wrap place (according to the guy who was decorating it).

Finally, if all of that is too dismal for you, there’s a nice blog post about how to pinch other people’s elderflowers in Blackheath, and what to do with them afterwards!

What would you spend £10,000 on in Blackheath?


Last year, Blackheath had £10k to spend on useful things in the area.

Not sure how much Boris will be doling out this year (assuming he’s dried himself off), but there is a meeting to decide how to spend the money on Tuesday 9th June 2009 at St Matthew Academy, St Joseph’s Vale off Lee Terrace SE3. 7.30pm. Hopefully the Google map is out of date, otherwise we’ll all be standing in a building site!

More about the assembly on the Lewisham council website.

The Blackheath Society’s page about it.

Godfried Gyechie – a local councillor on the assembly (link seems to have died, and bring your spell checker!).
