LAMBETH SAFER NEIGHBOURHOOD BOARD

The Police and Council are currently consulting on how to respond and deal with crime and safety issues and this is a key opportunity for Lambeth residents to help shape that. The team have put some questions forward to discuss and think about and details are under our events section here on the website.

The team will be grateful if as many people can respond so that what comes out of this consultation reflects the broad range of issues affecting Lambeth residents, businesses and communities. Please take a look at the events section of our website where there are also details of how you may respond and be a part of this all important consultation process.

Dear resident,

We are currently consulting on how the Police and the Council respond and deal with crime and safety issues and this is a key opportunity for Lambeth residents to help shape that. We want to make sure that the structures suit how real people live their lives, not just how the Council or Police want to operate.

We are also very keen to make sure that where residents are victims of crime or anti-social behaviour they can make sure that they are aware of how they can get these issues resolved, and that if not they know who to turn to.

The proposal sees Safer Neighbourhood Panels as the bedrock of dealing with crime and disorder, reflected in the proposal that there are six seats for Chairs of Safer Neighbourhood Panels on the Board, two from each cluster.

However the real changes decided at the Board need to happen at the local level and we need to make sure this translates down to the frontline - as such we've put some questions below worth thin king about:

- Safer Neighbourhood Panels are the building blocks of how we respond to crime and safety issues locally - how can we support panels to be as effective and representative as    possible in sharing information with local communities and acting as the forum where there are issues?
- How do we hold the Police to account at the Panel level?
- We intend to create neighbourhood clusters over a larger area - how will the panels be represented at these levels to tackle cross ward issues or share best practice amongst panels?
- How do Panels get the right information about initiatives or programmes to help keep themselves or their neighbourhoods safe?
- How do victims of crime make sure that the behaviour and practice of the local police change for the better and that their local police teams activities adapt to respond where crime    has happened?
- If your issues do not get dealt with at a local level who do you go to in order that it is resolved?

There is always a tension between the local and the borough wide - issues that affects communities which are geographically based vs. those that are affecting communities right across the borough. Being a victim of crime can be a very lonely place and not something you will necessarily want to shout about at a public meeting in front of strangers or even people you know.

The challenge for us is to create a flexible structure where we can discuss and find solutions for issues which affect all of our communities and get a safer borough. We need to make sure that public sector agencies are responsive at all levels, and that voices are loud and clear and valued however wide or serious the issue is. Hidden issues need to be taken as seriously as obvious or vocal ones.

I would be grateful if as many people can respond so that what comes out of this consultation reflects the broad range of issues affecting Lambeth residents, businesses and communities. The consultation online is http://www.snapsurveys.com/swh/surveylogin.asp?k=139531240017 or you can contact PDutton@lambeth.gov.uk or you can contact PDutton@lambeth.gov.uk or astewart1@lambeth.gov.uk for hard copies.

The proposed terms of terms of reference which provide more detail and context to the decisions at stake can be found online here http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/sites/default/files/SNB%20ToR%20Consultation%20Paper.pdf

The Safer Neighbourhood Board should be a collection of people who 'represent' different interests. The reach of those individuals in part will be reflected by the level of response so please circulate amongst your networks and colleagues.

Many Thanks on behalf of the Safer Lambeth Partnership.

Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens St George's Festival
Saturday 26th April 2014 12:00 - 18:00

Come one, come all to Vauxhall for a fantastic family celebration of England's patron saint. The historic Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens will play host to knights in armour, traditional mummers plays, falconers, jesters, wandering minstrels and Punch and Judy. There will be Shakespeare, fire breathing dragons, a market with plenty to eat, arts & crafts, and in the medieval village, the all-important ale tent.

Hustings for the local elections will take place from 4pm, adding a vibrant aspect of direct democracy to the event.

St George is England's patron saint, but he is also celebrated throughout the world. In Mons, Belgium, Saint George is honoured each year on Trinity Sunday with a reconstruction of the fight between Saint George and the dragon. In the province of Ferrara, Italy there is medieval myth which surrounds the dragon that Saint George defeated. They believe the dragon fled to the River Po and still inhabits the river causing floods in the area. Saint George is the patron saint of Beirut, Lebanon. The Saint George Bay in Beirut is believed to be the place where the dragon lived and where it was slain. He is also the saint of the Mediterranean Islands of Malta and Gozo. The international figure of Saint George is, therefore, the ideal figure to celebrate in the global city of London.

Vauxhall Trust is a Community Interest Company based in Vauxhall, London. Our primary aim is to produce high quality arts festivals on the historic Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. These festivals give the residents of Lambeth, one of London's most deprived boroughs, the opportunity to see and experience art, theatre and entertainment that they would not usually have access to. The festivals also promote community spirit and brings the community together, onto the local public space.

Vauxhall Trust are proud to be working with Black Knight Historical, Times Past, Big Fish, The Hawking Centre, Professor Felix, Martin Speed, Kennington Oval Vauxhall Forum, The Vauxhall Gardens Community Centre and The Friends of Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens to put on this spectacular event.


 

Happy Birthday RVT is a creative research project that celebrates the Royal Vauxhall Taverns’ historic importance as a site for LGBT culture, innovation in entertainment and influence on wider British popular culture. Framed around the venue’s 151st birthday, it will enable participants to have the opportunity to share, reflect on and learn about the last 60 years of social change for LGBT people, and how this has affected attitudes and changed lives in the UK.

Through the project, we will be collecting oral histories from a wide range of people with connections to the RVT, making a short film, collaborating with Duckie’s Youth Group on a performance based on the research, and creating a pop-up exhibition mapping key events at the RVT, the Vauxhall community and LGBT history.

Happy Birthday RVT has been developed by Artist Collective Re-Dock, in partnership with the RVT, Duckie, BAC and Lambeth Archives. It has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), through their Sharing Heritage Programme.

The Metropolitan Police Service needs you!

A campaign is underway to recruit hundreds more volunteer cadet leaders who can help make a difference to the lives of thousands of young adults in the capital.

The MPS needs around 400 extra cadet leaders aged 18 to 65 from all backgrounds and walks of life to support a drive to increase its volunteer Police Cadet [VPC] programme by 4,000 cadets, as pledged in the Mayor's Policing and Crime plan.

Without more leaders the MPS is unable to take on more cadets - so attracting a raft of new role models is vital for the future.

The campaign, which comprises of newspaper, radio and online ads and use of social media channels, Facebook and Twitter illustrate how VPC Leaders can help to inspire young cadets - urging Londoners who want to work with young people to get involved and give up their spare time. read more

Celebrating the international legacy of St. George

St George is patron saint not only of England but also of Aragon, Catalonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Palestine, Portugal, Germany, Greece, Moscow, Constantinople (Now Istanbul) , Genoa and Venice.

He is also patron saint of soldiers, archers, cavalry and chivalry, scouting, farmers and field workers, riders and saddlers, and he helps those suffering from leprosy, plague and syphilis.

23rd April named as St. George’s Day in 1222.

Tables set up running along the road outside the Tea House at the end of Vauxhall Walk. Visitors encouraged to bring food to share in the traditional street party fashion.

A retelling of the traditional story of St George and the dragon, complete with Dragon from the Notting Hill Carnival, St. George on Horseback and fair maiden tied to a tree as sacrifice to the dragon.

The People of Vauxhall Vs The Dragon: Adapted from the Belgian tradition in the city of Mons, this game involves the townsfolk chasing the dragon and attempting to take pieces of the dragon away with them which will bring them luck over the next 12 months.

Pop-up Shakespeare: scenes from Shakespeare taking place around the site throughout the day. One of the ideas so far for this is to have the Banquo’s ghost scene from MacB take place at the banqueting table while people are eating at the Street Party. We wish to contact local schools, theatre companies (professional and amateur), actors etc who may wish to provide these scenes and put a programme together with their help.

Displays or booklet explaining the traditions being shown and history surrounding them.

Readings and workshops for children along with a competition for their drawings of St George and the dragon.

Children’s Dragon Egg Hunt.

St. George is also the patron saint of Scouts we intend to involve local Scout troops in our celebrations.

The event on the 7th is a follow up of this joint effort. We hope to see you all on the 7th and help us decide on how to move things forward.

27th February 2013 - MOPAC Consultation on Future of Policing in Lambeth - Please consider and respond to Stephen Greenhalgh -

Information documents for download and viewing. MOPC Consultation \ Debate So Far \ Discussion Brief \

Dear All,

The future of policing in Lambeth is at risk and I wanted to remind everyone that we need you to respond to a consultation from the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC)

These proposals came out at very short notice and propose to reduce every Safer Neighbourhood Team to a single dedicated PC and PCSO, to focus on crime types which might not be relevant to the issues affecting your neighbourhood and also the closure of Gipsy Hill Police station.

Lambeth has received disproportionate cuts to our police numbers since 2010, losing over 300 officers. Outer London boroughs like Bromley and Bexley have not received cuts to the scale we have when considered against the level of crime and disorder Lambeth suffers from.

I have attached some background information which you are welcome to send round to members of your neighbourhood watch, safer neighbourhood panel or business watch.

" A briefing from me on concerns which have been raised by residents already (MOPAC Briefing)
" A Briefing from the Community Police Consultative Group (Debate so far)
" A Briefing from the Community Police Consultative Group (Discussion Brief)
" The actual strategy MOPAC are consulting on (MOPAC Consultation)

The Consultation can be accessed here http://www.smart-survey.co.uk/v.asp?i=67232epffs

We are really concerned about proposals to do away with the dedicated Safer Neighbourhood Teams, as well as Gipsy Hill Police station - Crime has been going down in Lambeth in no small part because of the local partnerships and local intelligence the SNT's provide. We do not want to go backwards.

If you have any questions or queries please do get in touch

Best Wishes
