BEATING THE BOUNDS OF TABARD GARDENS ESTATE
Wednesday 21 January
6.30pm at Hankey Hall,  Hankey Place; free
Residents who know the estate well, including some who have
lived there for 60 years, are taking the time to lead walks
around where they live, sharing personal stories and
impressions of the local area, past and present. The series
of informal walks throughout January will be facilitated by
Ana Laura Lopez de la Torre and joined by local historians,
community workers and others who have an interest in the
area. More elderly residents will be visited at home to
gather glimpses of times past on the estate. Some of the
walks will take place after dark as the project is part of
the artist's wider interest in night time in Southwark.
Following the walks will be a series of art workshops during
February half term for younger residents to respond
creatively to stories about the estate. The workshops will
focus on drawing, map-making and collage skills, learning
how to express issues of territory, boundaries and personal
history. Resulting art works will be exhibited for the
public by Balin House Projects on the estate. Walkers will
be invited to carry on the conversation at a local pub
afterwards. Families and individuals are warmly welcomed on
both parts of the project.

Short announcements from local organisations

HELP WITH HISTORY AND HERITAGE  LAMBETH ROAD SE1
I am looking into the history of Lambeth Road, in particular
Archbishops Temple secondary school, the old primary school
and the Archbishop Davison Institute (now ADI centre). Do
you know the ADI centre on Lambeth Road or the old
Archbishops Temple school? Are you an Old Lambethan? Can you
tell me your history or the history of these buildings? I am
hoping to put forward a bid to the heritage lottery fund and
your histories will really help. Please contact me, Abigail
Tripp on 0779 247 1115 or abigail@abscommunications.co.uk


ACTIVE LINKS - INNOVATIVE BEFRIENDING SERVICE
The Alzheimer's Society has just started 'Active Links', an
innovative befriending service to support Southwark,
Lambeth, Croydon and Lewisham residents who are living with
dementia. The scheme will provide interaction and
stimulation for individuals living with dementia by enabling
them to participate in various activities depending on their
interests. It is currently recruiting volunteers to spare a
couple of hours a week to befriend a person with dementia.
If you are interested and would like more information call
Rachida Haout-Innocent, Active Links Coordinator, on 020
7978 8979 or email at activelinks@alzheimers.org.uk 
If you or someone you care for would like to be introduced
to the service, you can also contact Rachida or your local
Alzheimer's Society branch.
