Well & Warm 2013

This well attended event gave people ideas for staying warmer in winter in a fun and informal way. This group also gave our Warm to Your Neighbour campaign a bit of feedback – saying that it’s difficult to meet neighbours if you’re not “plugged into” society in the same way as those around you.

There was a delicious hot soup lunch as well as presentations from Fraser Serle (Warm and Well in Winter Project Manager) and opportunities for people to ask questions and meet others from their neighbourhood. One of the attendees commented that

…It brings the community together while educating about things that matter

Rush Common Winter Fair 2011-2013

We must remember that before the Market we had the winter fair and in 2011 the Mayor of Lambeth Cllr Tulse Christiana Valcarcel opened the inaugural Rush Common Winter Fair in Brixton, South London. The Winter Fair will run for the third year by the Tulse Hill Forum on Rush Common on 7th Dec 2013

Tulse Hill Market

One of the young ladies, Shenice, was part of a Tulse Hill Market put on by the Tulse Hill Forum in Rush Common earlier this year, and features in the video of young ladies at the market seen in the screenshot above. You can view the video via this link.  

Shenice said, “I want to be able to sell my own things, make my own business, and show my artwork and designs on T-shirts.” For the first market, Shenice is likely to have samples of her work on the walls to be viewed, ahead of taking her own table at a later market. Shenice and her friends are currently working on planning and promoting the market.   

 Their efforts are being supported by local estate agents, Edward Ashdale, who are helping to publicise and fund the launch of the market, as well as sponsoring a raffle prize on the day. John Adamthwaite, who met the market organisers in the Scout Hut itself, said “It’s a pleasure to be associated with the young ladies and their new market.”

Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood planning powers were introduced under the Localism Act, 2011 to give members of the community a more hands on role in the planning of their neighbourhoods.

Residents, businesses and community groups in Tulse Hill have come together to form a Neighbourhood Forum, in order to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for their area. Two separate neighbourhood planning applications have been considered

Parents Organising Play

Parents Organising Play ‘POP’ #POPTulseHill has formed its first social community company in creating POP Soft Play Hire! POP Soft Play Hire offers a variety of safe and colourful soft play equipment for hire at reasonable prices for those who live or are holding an event


StreetWorks is a unique community-led project to improve Norwood and Tulse Hill. 

The project is funded by Transport for London and supported by officers at Lambeth Council.

The Norwood Forum, the Tulse Hill Forum, local councillors and community groups are working together with residents, businesses, schools and road users to design a better space, remove the one-way system at Tulse Hill and provide training and support for future local projects.

Tulse Hill Neighbourhood Plan

The Tulse Hill Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will help our community to design, develop, and manage a Neighborhood Plan that works for Tulse Hill working collaboratively with a wide variety of practitioners, including both existing and future residents.

At the core of the development of our Neighbourhood Plan is an understanding of the needs of local people and givingthem a voice to shape the environments they live in. To become the lead organisations to move a Neighbourhood Plan forward we needed 21 people to be signed up. We signed up 90, and spoke to over 300 residents in 15 different area locations in the process. Now we are on the path to writing our plan and we want more people involved. We don’t want to produce a plan behind closed doors with only a few people taking part.

We want to grow this team in both capacity and knowledge. Over the coming months we will be holding family friendly workshops on the variety of area covered by the Neighborhood Plan. We will deal with training and support to individuals who would like to help look at the information gathered and then construct the plan and policies.
