London Local Assembly Member, Val Shawcross and your local Labour Councillors are calling for Transport for London and Boris Johnson to join Lambeth Council into committing to changing the Vauxhall Gyratory so it is safer for pedestrians and cyclists to use.
We the undersigned join in the call for the Vauxhall gyratory to be changed so it’s safer for local residents and fit for purpose in an increasingly residential area.

Dear Singing Clan,
As mentioned Bonnington Square is not an easy place to liase with but it is very inexpensive, local and in a very pleasing setting so it is worth sticking with it. I cannot ascertain from their scant message if there are any evening dates in June but have been told that there are no evening dates in May so…there are weekends available. We have our Summer concert to prepare for and we are preparing in earnest and in speed for our mini concert in the glories of St Nicholass church in New Romney next weekend. So we are very busy so I not keen to have the concert right up against the summer concert nevertheless want the classical concert to go ahead as a priority and in order to give everyone a chance to perform as not every singer will be performing in each event.

Gardens don’t have to be productive to be community gardens. The Pleasure Garden and Paradise Project in Bonnington Square, Vauxhall, was established in 1994 when a plot of land bombed during World War II was about to be built on. The residents quickly mobilised, got council approval and took over the plot with the aim of creating a green space that could be enjoyed by everyone, especially those living locally in flats without gardens. The beautifully planted sub-tropical haven was designed by the residents using found objects and is maintained by them as a tranquil refuge open to all.

Yesterday I visited Bonnington Square for the first time in over 50years. My grandmother lived at No.5 for a few years until her death in 1954. Her sister, my great Aunt, moved to No.35 prior to 1911 (she is shown on the census for that year) until her death in in the 1960s I have distinct memories of visiting 35. I would like to say thank you to the very kind lady, whose name unfortunatley I did not get, who took photographs of me outside my grandmother’s house and showed my round the delightful gardens. I believe the owner of the shop will know the lady to whom I refer.
I have many very happy childhood memories of visit No.35. My mother who is nearly 89 is thrilled with the photographs I took. the lady who helped had a Scottish accent and said she had been in Bonnington Square for about 3yrs having move, i think, from north London.
If you happen to be that person please get in touch with us or Susan Hall [email protected]
