Open Meeting – Q & A With London Assemble Member Leonie Cooper
Leonie Copper is our local London Assembly member representing Merton & Wandsworth, hopefully holding the London Mayor to account; she is a councillor for Furzedown Ward in Wandsworth and was formerly the Co-Chair of SERA – the Labour Environment Campaign.
Leonie will talk for a short time about her role and how this is relevant to our local area and then we will open the meeting up to you all as a Q&A session.
Invitations have been extended to our local Councillors.
Please join us, this is a great opportunity to have your say and meet local residents, councillors and STRA committee members in an informal local setting.
Thursday 9th March 2017 @ 8pm
Southfields CIU Club, 62 Standen Road, SW18 5TQ
Christmas Lights in Southfields
In association with the Southfields Business Forum you are invited to the switching on of the Christmas lights in Southfields by the Mayor of Wandsworth on Tuesday the 6th December from 4.30pm.
Carols, mince pies, mulled wine, live jazz and Christmas market stalls for all the family to enjoy.
Southfields Harvest is a free neighbourhood not for profit festival which is now in its third year.
Celebrating local food and drink, community and creativity, it is held at St Barnabas church and halls on Lavenham Road on 1 October 12.00-3.00pm
New for this year the organizers have arranged The Big Draw! where local artist Jane Porter is leading the creation of The Great Big Southfields Combine Harvester on the day using salvaged materials.
In addition we are creating a Shops Trail where about a dozen local shops will be displaying an item of knitted or papier mache fruit or veg in their windows or by their tills for people to spot and enter for a prize draw.
As well as baking competitions, vegetable monster-making for children, local produce will be on sale and Rocky Head beer with which help wash down The Village Butcher’s barbecued Southfields sausages.
Something for everyone, we hope all to the tune of two local bands The Combine Harvesters and The Beetroots
Switching on the Southfields Clock
For 10 years, time has stood still on the clock above your local Andrews branch.
Like Andrews, the clock has been part of our community for decades.
But they have fixed it during their recent re branding, and they would be delighted if local residents you could celebrate with them as it’s officially turned back on.
Count down with us to the Lord Mayor of Wandsworth switching on the Southfields clock at 12 noon on Saturday 1 October 2016.
