Sorry for the long delay between posts, but I’ve been (mostly) outside enjoying the sunshine and trying not to sit in front of a PC for too long.
News? Not a lot. I missed the Rise festival at the weekend (wasn’t it renamed London United?) as I went to a barbecue, so no report on that. Sorry.
I’ve seen some movement in the old Bee’s Auto Bits shop; there were a couple of guys cleaning it out last week, and someone was scraping the lettering off the sign on Sunday. I’d love to think that someone was going to open a decent delicatessen in there, but I get the feeling it’s going to be another off-licence. Please god, let it be something different.
The owner of Imperial Gardens is requesting £9 million compensation from Southwark Council. The Council, in turn, have offered £1,000. I sense we haven’t heard the end of this story.
Oh, and while we’ve had good weather I’ve been walking home from Vauxhall every evening along the longest Georgian road in the country. With the sun on your neck and a can of cider in your hand, I highly recommend it.
Finally: I forgot to celebrate my first anniversary last Wednesday.
