Winter 2013/14

Welcome to readers in Lambeth and Southwark

In our Winter 2013/14 issue we are pleased to be extending our distribution, readership and commercial partners further into the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark. We are looking forward to exploring the stories of the people in Vauxhall, Kennington, Brixton and Denmark Hill.

As the dust settles around the Shard we are now beginning to see the new businesses arriving. Companies who have chosen the south side of the river as their new home emerge daily. The Ballet Rambert takes its place in an already wonderfully colourful tapestry of the arts. But we also see more bars and coffee shops on practically every empty corner, in every empty space available opening to accommodate the new visitors.

Hope you enjoy our latest issue and have a happy and prosperous New Year!

Yours

A Webb
