Thursday 3 April
3.30pm-6pm  at Johanna Primary School, Johanna Street, Lower

showcase the children's work and to bring the local
community together and enable them to have their say about
local community services. So while the children are perhaps
looking around the stalls, their parents and carers will
have the opportunity to put across their views, which will
be fed back to Lambeth Council.
