jumble sale Sat 27 Mar for Albany Midwives

Message from the Albany Mum’s group campaigning to save the Albany Midwives service in Peckham. See
Drop in as well to find out about this campaign relevant across Peckham and East Dulwich, and maybe beyond.

The Scout Hut, 212 Bellenden Road,
Peckham, SE15

The Albany Mums group is holding a jumble sale this Saturday at the Bellenden Road Scout’s Hut, in aid of the Albany Midwives who were, until recently, based at the Peckham Pulse.
I’ve attached the poster with details; we’ll be open from 11am-3pm on Sat, with home-made cakes, teas, and lots of great jumble. Much of it is baby and child-related but there will be books, adult clothes and some lovely hand-made items as well. Obviously we’re hoping to raise as much as possible to boost the fighting fund for our wonderful midwives.
Many thanks

small or communal work spaces in Peckham

I come across a number of people who live in Peckham or nearby who are looking for some small office and working space outside their homes to share with others in similar situations. Here is a recent example:

Please may I ask for a quick bit of advice? As you probably know, I spend a fair amount of my working life editing video, sat at home in front of my computer. For a while now, I’ve been thinking that I should find some office space. My absolute ideal would be office space already populated with like-minded people who are also working on their own projects – a kind of communal filmmaker/artist studio. I was wondering if you might know if such a “communal office space” already exists anywhere in the neighbourhood?
I am interested in seeing if we can think of some way to find out more about the kinds of work spaces that could be developed in Peckham to meet these kinds of needs.
If you have any information or ideas about the needs or the supply of spaces, let me know.

Here is a message from Transition Town Peckham.
