Free BikeSafe courses
Lambeth Transport Team is offering free places on BikeSafe and ScooterSafe courses for riders who live, work or study in the borough, whether you use your bike for pleasure or for commuting.
The Mayor of London has announced a £42,000 funding pot that will allow schools in Lambeth and Croydon to grow their own food as part of an initiative to tackle obesity in the capital and get young Londoners eating more healthily. The scheme will consider requests ranging from tools to training, equipment to part-funding a school gardener until the application process closes on Friday 4 December 2015.
Help us to improve the streets you live in
If you live in Streatham South, Streatham Wells, St Leonard’s or Thornton Ward we are asking for ideas about how to improve your streets to make your neighbourhood a better place to live. Improvements could include more trees, pedestrian crossings or changing road layouts – all ideas will be considered and innovation is encouraged!
