Last week's newsletter featured a story about the Lambeth
snow wardens scheme and the relative lack of take-up in the
north of the borough. Since the item was published it has
been brought to our attention that members of the Lambeth
Estate Residents' Association have trained as snow wardens
and cleared local pavements on 4/5 February. We are happy to
set the record straight and apologise to LERA and its
members.
