I fully intended to write a post over the weekend about the launch of Camberwell Arts Festival, with pictures and a report from the Parade and Live! concert in Lucas Gardens. Unfortunately, my wife was taken ill on Saturday and I wasn’t able to leave the house to attend. If anyone did go, how about leaving a brief report in the comments?
On a related note, if you ever need to see a doctor outside of Practice hours, you should first contact NHS Direct (0845 4647) and then, if necessary, SELDOC (call your local practice and get the number from their answering service). Hopefully you won’t have to make the trip down to Dulwich Hospital, as we did, with a moody cab driver who charges you extra for stopping at a cashpoint.
I did manage to get out on Sunday morning (before the weather turned bad) and take some new pictures of the area which I’ve added to the Camberwell SE5 pool. Again, if you have a Flickr.com account please feel free to add more.
In other news, Southwark Council is still in trouble with the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) over the closure of the Imperial Gardens nightclub in 2003. I confess that this story had passed me by; I’d seen a few leaflets pasted to bus stops, but didn’t really know what it was about. The linked story (from the South London Press) gives a good rundown of the whole affair. But was Imperial Gardens really known as
the Motown of South London?
