'I blooming love my mum' craft workshop

The Mother of All Weekenders

Lane & Vale locals were out in force at the weekend to celebrate Mother’s Day and show their support for our neighbourhood. The community campaign to support businesses in the Greyhound Lane and Streatham Vale area only launched two weeks ago so we’re rather pleased with the positive response from residents and business owners alike.

The Mother’s Day weekend celebrations began on Friday night at The Railway pub which hosted a full house for their ‘Common Folk’ music night. Saturday saw around 250 children and adults take part in a range of exciting activities at the pub including Flaming Nora’s ‘I blooming love my Mum’ flower making workshop, the Farmers’ Market and Photo-booth Out of Order’s amazing family portraits.

Swap your shop for local in Lane & Vale

Lane & Vale is a community campaign for a small neighbourhood with big ideas.

Greyhound Lane and Streatham Vale have been feeling very unloved of late. With the closure of Streatham Bridge, footfall has dropped, drivers are avoiding the area and even the buses are diverted. In short, the fall in passing trade has led to a drop of around 70% in sales for some local businesses.

But these are not just faceless, nameless entities and statistics – these are fantastic shops, restaurants and services right on our doorstep, run by committed members of our community, for our community. And for them to survive and flourish like they deserve to, they need our help. That’s why we’ve launched Lane & Vale, a campaign to support local businesses and the community. Funded by the Streatham Bridge Business Association, the campaign is part of a long-term plan to regenerate the area. And we want you to support it by making a choice to shop local…read more

• December 2011 – My Local Favorites

Having both lived in Streatham and been a local Yoga Teacher here for about six years I definitely feel very local and at home in Streatham. I am really excited about the Shop in Streatham project bringing awareness to all the amazing offers right on our doorstep.

I love being a local yoga teacher. The yoga community here in Streatham is brilliant: supportive, open and very friendly! I currently offer five weekly classes from the Capoiera School’s Studios. This include Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and a Mum & Baby Class as well as regular Yoga Workshops.

The Capoeira School has grown too. They have two premises on Streatham High Road and offer more Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Dance Classes and of course Capoiera. Various therapies are also available. It is definitely worth a visit!

This Festive Season I will stay focused and grounded with my yoga practice and shop locally: Maitri for herbs to stay healthy over Xmas, find a bargain party dress at All Aboard Charity Shop, have lunch at Purple, any pampering and waxing at The Remedie Rooms and then enjoy cupcakes and find unique jewellery at Earl Grey & Rose.

Happy Festive Season!
