Festival of Love

This year Valentine’s Day will fall on a Sunday. There will sadly be no candlelit dinners in restaurants or special trips out.

However, local cafes, restaurants and pubs will be offering click & collect/delivery of themed meals, and local butchers, bakeries, supermarkets etc. will tempt you with special offers for your at home celebration. The Love in Lockdown list of local Valentines offers usefully put together by Station to Station will give you some ideas.

Lambeth Council parent and carer survey

This highlighted a clear need to heighten awareness and to increase accessibility. To help us shape Lambeth's new Communication Plan, they want to hear from you to better understand your preferred methods of communications.

Sydenham Hill Wood: Cox's Walk Oaks saved
