Heart Streatham Issue 41

Welcome to Heart Streatham’s 41st edition. the trees are budding and the early flowers are blooming as we write this in right, warm spring sunshine. this month's cover is the iconic streatham Pumping station on Conyers rd which can be seen from the railway lines as well. We have superimposed alper Yagmur, owner of el Chico's Mexican restaurant (see review - p12), who became hero to many by organising deliveries of bottled water to elderly folk and others who couldn't make it to the delivery points when the water went out. When his restaurant’s water was cut he and his staff decided to work instead for the benefit of the community and we salute that! Do you have a local hero (with, or without, cape) you think should be celebrated? Get in touch: [email protected]. co.uk or heartstreatham.co.uk/contact
