Heart Streatham Issue 52

Welcome to the may issue of Heart Streatham. It includes the official guide to Streatham Kite Day. We can’t wait to see the fabulous kite displays filling the sky above Streatham Common with colour – and we’ll be joining in the fun flying our own kites and enjoying the live music, food, and stalls on the 12th may. It’s a family friendly celebration that brings the whole  community to the Common, and one of our favourite events in the local calendar. See you there!
