A couple of things from the newspapers:
First, the scheme to cut down on street drinking in Camberwell seems to have been a success. Drinking related problems were down to 9 from 45 the previous year, and the number of drinkers was 26, down from 150. Hopefully this is not just a temporary drop and the good work will continue.
Second, a brief mention in this article about ‘Guerilla Gardeners’, people who tidy up municipal places after dark. The featured Gardener, Richard Reynolds, has done some work on Camberwell Green. Not sure I agree with the description of it as an ‘urban wasteland’, mind you.
By the way, looks like Buddha Jazz is open. I passed there tonight and there were people inside, although it looked like a launch party or something. The place looks very nice, and I look forward to trying it out soon.
