Save Old Tidemill School Community Garden from being bulldozed!

Help us save Old Tidemill Garden – Lewisham is selling off our community spaces – We need to act now!

The local Community is fighting hard to save this Garden form being bulldozed by Sherry Green Homes.  WE WANT TO KEEP THIS SPACE FOR OUR COMMUNITY and to have it open to the public all year round.  This is a one-off nature space for children to play in and for everyone to enjoy.

This beautiful nature space really is the green lungs of South Deptford.

Come and enjoy it now while you can – OPEN EVERY SATURDAY 12-3pm.

Love being Warm: Free Advice on 14th February

South East Community Energy (SELCE) is running a session on Affordable Warmth, to update frontline workers, volunteers and other relevant people on what is available to support you and your clients to keep warm and well at home for less. We can run these at a time and place convenient to you / your clients, or you can attend an open, public session.

Our next session is to be held on February 14th 2017 from 1pm-4pm. Alternatively, I can come along to an existing event/team/meeting/training session hosted by you and run a session there. This can be anything from 20 minutes, to the full three-hour session, depending on your requirements! Below is an overview as well as the link to book a place:

All are welcome to come along to this informative, practical and engaging workshop to find out more about what is available to support you and your clients to keep warm and well at home for less. Even if you have attended something similar before, this area is always changing! So come along for free and find out the latest information.

Here is some feedback from a previous session: “…was actually very useful and sort of fun!”.

You will find out:

  • What fuel poverty is, who it affects and how it affects their health;
  • How to get the best deal for energy bills (this should help your household too!);
  • What assistance is available – locally and nationally;
  • What can be done to save money and energy around the home;
  • Details of schemes which are available specifically to help vulnerable clients in the local area.

These are the basics of what you need to know to enable action to be taken without adding hugely to your already large work load! If this isn’t relevant to you directly, please pass this on to anyone or any service that could find it of interest! Be it a health team, local charity or another community initiative that you know of! Any questions please phone the SELCE office on 0208 269 4882.

Book now as these free sessions have a tendency of filling up fast!
