Please see Angela’s v useful updates in the comments alongside yesterday’s report
The water leak on the pavement outside No 105 has been reported to Thames Water. (The residents appear to be absent.)
Let’s see how long it takes Thames Water to turn up.
Congratulations to the organisers of Fawnbrake’s first street party, held yesterday afternoon!
It was declared to be a great success by everyone who attended, and stands a good chance of being repeated in 2019.
On top of that, a collection for the Herne Hill Welcomes Refugees project (Twitter: @HHWR_ ) raised an amazing £250.
And thanks to Pete for the photograph.
Our street party is approaching, thanks to the exertions of some efficient and imaginative neighbours.
It’s on Sunday 22 July.
We all want some rain, but not that afternoon, please!
Note that car-owners are asked to park elsewhere for the day of the party, as the section of Fawnbrake between Poplar Walk and Brantwood Road will be officially closed to traffic and supposedly devoid of cars.
So no deliveries that day, OK?
The Herne Hill Safer Neighbourhood Police team report that gutter cleaners have been canvassing the area – indeed, some have been leafletting here in Fawnbrake Avenue.
They offer to clean the gutters, then miraculously discover serious problems in the guttering, or roofing (even removing tiles to create a problem which they can then demonstrate).
It is better to use recognised roofing firms to check out any suspected problems in gutters.
If, like us, you were irritated that your garden waste bags weren’t collected on Friday, and left disconsolate on the pavement, it may be that – again, like us – you’ve omitted to renew your annual subscription.
Did they tell us that the subscription was expiring? Of course not. Are we surprised at that? No.
Anyway, you can renew by phone, or on the website.
If your neighbours have had the same experience, it might be kind to tell them.
If, on the other hand, you remembered to renew, feel free to celebrate your efficiency!
