Listen out for the line about the time the 118 crashed into a front garden in Streatham Vale – its one of our favourites. Kingsmead Rd Morning Disco Every Sunday morning, Kingsmead Rd hosts a socially distant street disco, as featured in The Guardian last weekend. Like so many Streatham streets, Kingsmead has an active community spirit. Resident Sonia organised delivering flyers offering support to every home and those with gardens have been leaving flowers on the doorsteps of flats. The DJs behind the event, Rob Cockburn, a lawyer, and Barny North, who works in digital media, have strung bunting between their houses, and Rob normally wears a costume, according to neighbour, Simon Lycett. Of the playlist, Barny North says, “It’s very eclectic. A bit of pop. Mostly jazz, a bit of RnB, a bit of reggae.” His final track was Nina Simone’s Feeling Good. Neighbour Andrea Mulligan says Barny and Rob have mastered the art of DJing for a motley lockdown crowd. “We come to our gates and give people a wave and just enjoy the music. It’s a nice moment of unity.” Thanks to the Guardian and Orlando Gili, who took the photograph of Rob and Barny with their families.

At The Rookery Café on Streatham Common, chefs Frank & Dan have been working with wonderful local charity Critical NHS to deliver meals to frontline teams at St. George’s Hospital in Tooting. Regular customer and Streatham resident Guy Henry (AKA Henrik Hanssen of the BBC’s Holby City, also of Star Wars & Harry Potter) has also lent a helping hand taking deliveries to the hospital.

  14. 14. STREATHAM CELEBRATES VE DAY 1945 Following the signing of the German surrender the previous day, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced the 8th May would be a public holiday so the nation could celebrate the cessation of hostilities on the continent. The War effort to defeat Japan in the Far East resumed afterwards, and three months later VJ Day was observed on the 15th August and the second world war came to an end. May 8th saw an outbreak of celebrations throughout Streatham where numerous street parties were hurriedly organised to mark the occasion. Tables and chairs were laid out in the centre of roads and home-made bunting and flags were hung from lamp posts and the windows of neighbouring houses. While men were preparing the road ladies busied themselves in their kitchens preparing party food for the children to enjoy - no simple task, given the strict rationing that was then in place. Other residents organised party games, sports and other amusements to entertain the children. Typical of such parties was that held in Cunliffe Street, Streatham, which was organised by Mrs D Miles. After the children had feasted on sandwiches, cakes and orange squash a special treat was brought to the table in the form of a large quantity of ice cream which was donated by local resident, Mr Wicherson. Following this sumptuous feast races were organised further along the road, with many of the mothers joining in the fun and participating in the three-legged and wheelbarrow races. At the conclusion of the afternoon, prizes donated SUNNYHILL ROAD VE DAY STREET PARTY - COPYRIGHT LOCAL HISTORY PUBLICATIONS The 8th May marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 1945 - Victory in Europe Day. 14 HEART STREATHAM

Later that evening the festivities continued around hastily erected bonfires, with particularly large blazes organised in Westcote and Strathdale Roads. Two days later, Streatham's celebrations were concluded when King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the two princesses, Elizabeth (our present Queen) and Margaret her sister, made an official visit to the town to inspect local civil defence forces at Sunnyhill Road School. Large crowds lined the streets to welcome the Royal party, including a number of Italian Prisoners of War who were working in the neighbourhood. The King was greeted at the entrance to the school by the Mayor of Wandsworth and was led through the crowds of cheering children in the playground to inspect the various detachments on parade including members of Streatham's ARP unit. It was to be over a year later, on 8th June 1946, that Wandsworth council organised official Victory celebrations on Streatham Common when thousands of local residents and children gathered there to once again celebrate the end of the Second World War.

  16. 16. seconds to save our High Street and our communities60 These are unprecedented times for our econ- omy at a local, regional and national level. Industry leaders, political figures and Busi- ness Improvement Districts are calling on the Government to support businesses within the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors who have a ratea- ble value of more than £51,000. As part of the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant (RHLG) guid- ance, only those with a business rates value of up to £51,000 can access the vital grant, leaving tens of thousands of businesses stranded. The #RaiseTheBar campaign, launched on 21 April 2020, is calling on the Government to raise the arbitrary £51,000 business rates threshold cap to £150,000, allowing over 54,638 busi- nesses across England and Wales in these sectors the chance to survive. Plans for a £617m discretionary fund an- nounced by Government on 2 May do not go far enough according to industry bodies, associations and business owners across the UK, with no guarantees local authorities will issue relief. The Government has made clear that this fund is for specific purposes, none of which support businesses with a rateable value between £51,000 to £150,000. The #Rai- seTheBar campaign estimates a maximum of £1.365bn in Government support is needed to enable the RHLG grant to support all 54,638 businesses falling within a business rates threshold of £51,000 to £150,000. Croydon BID is leading the #RaiseTheBar campaign and has been joined by over 100 BIDs and many political leaders. UK High Streets are on the brink of collapse as the eight-week countdown to the next quarterly rent instalment begins today, ac- cording to the #RaiseTheBar campaign. This is a collective campaign designed to support the people that work for and run businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors. Across the UK, there are individual, personal concerns and uncertainties sur- rounding the economy and the effect that COVID-19 will have on them. In amending the rateable value from £51,000 to £150,000, we not only save businesses but we also save jobs. By InStreatham It only takes 60 seconds to sign the #RaiseTheBar petition to save the nation’s High Streets and our communities. SIGN HERE!

  21. 21. Lambeth Council has published plans for reducing road danger and the risk of COVID-19 transmission as part of a Transport Strategy Emergency Response (TSER). This includes immediate changes to the highway to allow physical distancing to take place at high priority locations in line with Government guidance. None of the locations mentioned is in Streatham. This is because problematic areas are on Streatham High Rd, which is under the control of Transport for London. We expect Lambeth recognise that this is a significant problem in some places in Streatham. In places like those pictured – outside a general store opposite Streatham Green, and outside Boot’s Optician – we urge TfL to stop shop displays restricting pavement width, and to extend pathways into the roads with temporary infrastructure. We raised the issue with Neil Salt, Chair of Streatham Action Transport after receiving a big response to posting photos on @heartstreatham. He immediately wrote to Lambeth Council and TfL alerting them to pinch points on Streatham High Rd. Neil says: “Similar issues are being experienced close to bus stops on a number of other high streets across London, so we shall wait to see whether temporarily cordoning off a part of the bus lane close to these two bus stops for as long as social distancing measures need to be in place may be the best answer for sorting out this problem.” Almost concurrently, the Mayor of London and TfL announced the Streetspace initiative, giving space to new cycle lanes and wider pavements to enable social distancing. Wider footways on high streets will facilitate local economic recovery by allowing space to queue for shops and for people to safely pass while socially distancing. TfL anticipate that cycling could increase 10-fold and walking five-fold post-lockdown, and they aim rapidly to repurpose London’s streets to serve demand. Creating new walking and cycling on the A23 between Oval and Streatham Hill was specified – though no details have been released yet. The TSER also mentions helping Streatham bicycle commuters by expediting Cycle Quietway Route 5 from Norbury to Waterloo. This would involve asking Wandsworth Council to allow the route to cross Tooting Common, where cycling is currently prohibited. Quietways are continuous cycle routes on less-busy backstreets across London. They are marked with purple signs and are good for people who want to cycle on lower-traffic streets. Three priority areas are identified in the Council’s adopted Low Traffic Neighbourhood Plan: Oval, Streatham Hill, and Valley Road (see our last issue for details). It proposes bringing forward trial measures in one or more of these areas as soon as possible to reduce road danger and prevent increased traffic levels once movement restrictions are eased. The ‘Oval triangle’ is the one most likely to be prioritised due to its link to the full implementation of Cycleway 5. Unfortunately, the map of the proposed route is missing from the TfL website. - Jane Wroe Wright STREATHAM’S STREETSPACE CHALLENGE Neil Salt
  22. 22. We heard about Afsha Mohamed and Rifka Khan because as soon as the lockdown started they were posting in our local COVID Mutual Aid WhatsApp group for volunteers to collect food packs from them to deliver around south London . The friends set up The Food Care Packs Project on 23rd March to help vulnerable people in the community. “Initially, we made around 25 food care packs and shared them on the Lambeth Mutual Aid page to encourage others to set up similar initiatives in their areas. This was early in the lockdown, before Lambeth had set anything up.” Said Afsha. With the help of family, friends, mosques, church groups, Mutual Aid groups, and other organisations they have now supported many people. “Our packs have been going to the elderly, single mothers, care leavers, those waiting for Universal Credit or struggling financially, those with health issues, women living in refuges and many more.” Recipients live all over South London and deliveries are made by local people who have joined Streatham Mutual Aid Volunteer groups. “We have been sad to see people on our doorsteps, who do not have enough food - some have gone hungry for days before reaching out. We have been able to provide them with practical help and signpost them towards long-term support,” said Afsha, “The Streatham community has been amazing and so supportive.” The group has been able to fulfil every request for food with door to door delivery through residents’ volunteering. “Everyone has had a can-do attitude and whenever a request has been put in for a delivery, someone has come forward, in most cases within 10 minutes of posting. I’m really proud to be from SW16”, commented Afsha. Recipients of the Food Care Packs have made some heart-warming comments. “l salute you ladies for your kind deeds..Stay blessed and safe” “I can’t thank you enough…You're all angels.” “We don’t even know one another and have never even crossed paths before… and you cared for me” “ I tell my family back home that you give me food box for free and there is a Good Samaritan. I also tell my friends; I cannot keep it to myself! A million thanks!” Afsha and Rifka are now also working closely with SWAN (Southern Women’s Aid Network) to offer food packs to those in need in South West London. - Jane Wroe Wright The Food Care Packs Project Nisha Afsha 22 HEART STREATHAM Rifka

  30. 30. Polka Online: Lions, Gorillas and Everywhere Bears Polka Theatre, children’s theatre based in Wimbledon, has moved its output online during the lockdown period. Content created around the theme of Lions, Gorillas and Everywhere Bears explores some of the much-loved children’s books that the theatre has adapted for stage, providing online story time, workshops, and activities based on two themes. The Paper Dolls based on Julia Donaldson’s story about a young girl’s paper dolls creation and their adventures. There’s an online story time read by actress Andrea Sadler who performed in the most recent production of the The Paper Dolls staged in winter 2019/20. There are also drama workshops to do at home led by Polka’s Mark Stephenson and Leyla Stirling. The second theme is based on Anthony Browne’s picture book, Gorilla – a story of a birthday moonlit adventure young Hannah is taken on by her toy gorilla. The show was last staged in 2015, and its director, Roman Stefanski, gives a story time reading. Activity packs provide a range of banana-based creativity, including recipes, games, and animal facts. Polka’s Creative Learning Officer. Heidi Pointet leads two online workshops around movement, character and emotions. In future weeks, Polka will share similar resources around their productions of The Everywhere Bear, How to Hide A Lion, and In the Winter Wood. Education resources are also available for teachers and parents for home-schooling. The teacher packs focus primarily on creative, practical drama activities and literacy exercises that support the development of language and communication. Polka Theatre is a registered charity and faces difficulties considering the Covid-19 outbreak. To support Polka visit polkatheatre.com/donations/.
