Heart Streatham Issue 60

Last month, Streatham made headlines with terror on our streets. We are grateful to the emergency services whose swift action prevented carnage, and all three victims are recovering. Thanks also, to those shopping and working near the scene, particularly the staff at Streatham Library, who helped ensure people caught up in the incident were safe. Within a week, people from all parts of our community came together to reclaim our High Road to show that Streatham stands together and will not be divided by evil. Read all about it on page 20.

Please respond to TfL’s consultation on their proposals to improve the A23 Streatham Hill by 22nd March. The plan is published at the back of this magazine, and there are two opportunities to talk to the project team in person.

Spring is in the air, and we’re looking forward to spending Mother’s Day in Streatham – see our suggestions for a lovely local day in this issue.

Help save Streatham’s historic sleeping beauty; the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre are crowdfunding for a feasibility study to save and reclaim this iconic building for the community.
