Went out to dinner yesterday for the wife’s birthday. We decided on the Dark Horse, as the food was very good there last time we went. It was very good this time too, and we took advantage of the Early Bird special, allowing us two courses for £12.95, a very reasonable price. This is not a paid advertising feature.
There is movement on the former site of the dilapidated shithouse on the corner of the Green; the newly-laid patio area is being dug up once more. Will there be a new public utility there? Or is this the site of the new memorial:
… coming soon is a touching memorial to a wedding party who lost their lives during a Blitz bombing raid. Designed by local stonemason Hamish Horsley, it has just received planning permission and will be installed over the coming months.
I found this news in the pages of the latest Southwark Life magazine, which also informs us:
The great plane tree in the middle of Camberwell Green will soon be lit by 4,000 low-energy LED lights, which have been funded by a Safer London Foundation award and Camberwell’s cleaner greener safer fund.
Good news. Top of my wish list for development of the area was to light up a tree in the middle the Green.
