We will meet artists, curators and activists to explore how they are resisting or overcoming the displacement of communities and the shrinking of public and creative spaces.

Creekside Discovery Centre – Activities coming up

Dear Andrea,

Mellow Yellow in May – despite the draught we are currently experiencing, we have some mellow yellow wildflowers appearing around the site.

This year we are hosting a series of Wildflowers Pop-ups to give you a chance to see more of the spectacular wildflowers at Creekside. Each Pop-up will have a defferent theme and focus species. Our upcoming Wildflower Pop-up (details below) theme is “Mellow Yellow in May” with a wild mixture of cabbages and coposites all really wild in a real London habitat. Hawk’s-beards, Rockets, Cresses, Ragworts and Buttercups; and don’t forget the three colours: white red and blue.

Inter Faith Walk for Peace

Take part in the Lewisham Inter Faith Walk For Peace 2017

On Sunday 21st May 2017, members of faith communities will participate in the 3rd Lewisham Inter Faith Walk For Peace.

This idea was born after the Charlie Hebdo atrocity in Paris, when it was felt that a sign of solidarity and friendship in partnership with all members of society was needed.

Organised by Lewisham Police and the faith leaders group, residents visit several religious places of worship in Lewisham.

This year will see attendees stop at Lewisham Synagogue, St Laurence Church, Lewisham Islamic Centre and Sivan Temple.

For more details, please contact John Biddle on 020 8284 8336 or email john.biddle@met.police.uk.
