Autumn 2015

Dear Readers

This September marks our third
anniversary and this time round we
have been delighted to work with
new people in our community to
create fresh content and features not
seen before.

In this issue we have a marvellous
‘Wine Club’ in collaboration with
local merchants Lant Street
Wines, who are offering special
deals and discounts on award-winning
reds and whites. We also
have our first full Education feature,
showcasing the very best of local
education, which uncovers
some inspirational stories, teachers
and pupils that are helping to shape
an even brighter future for London’s
riverside residents.

We invite you to visit the Jerwood
Drawing exhibition and see some great Rep. theatre
just north of the river. Two of our team
went to see Three Days in the Country at the
National and highly recommend that you do too.

Of course, come rain or shine, the
only place to be on 19th September is
the Bermondsey Street Festival –
so hope to see you there!


A Webb
