{ What's on this week }

Monday 18 January
7pm at Smile Suite, Prospero House, 241 Borough High Street
A public consultation on how the London Fire and Emergency
Planning Authority can make 6.4m of budget savings for
2016/17 is open until 1 February. Members of London Fire and
Emergency Planning Authority approved two proposals for
consultation, both of which would ensure no fire station
closures and no firefighters would be made compulsorily
redundant. The main difference between the options relates
to the future of the 13 fire engines that have been out of
service for two years as part of Brigade's strike
contingency arrangements. One of the affected fire engines
is usually based at Old Kent Road fire station.

Victoria and others. Anyone who can read music and wants to
take part should download the sheet music from the PDtP
