Community Safety Day in the Green and the Camberwell Arts Festival in Myatts Field with the Pearly King of Camberwell...and Hibs Pre-Season Progamme!

I went along to 2 really good events in Camberwell on Saturday!
The first was a Community Safety Day in Camberwell Green with the Camberwell Green SNT Police and the Camberwell Community Wardens and Junior Wardens present.
The Wardens have recently launched a Junior Community Warden Scheme and currently have 80 young people involved apparently with a log waiting list. this is an excellent initiative and , although I have been critical of the wardens in the past, I feel that they are on track organisationally, operationally and educationally so well done to them for that!!
I went on to "The Big Event" in Myatts Field to celebrate the £3M redevelopment of the Park thanks to National Lottery money and the launch of the Camberwell Arts Festival 2009. very good politically to open the festival in Lambeth Camberwell.
It was a really great day and the Park looks fantastic and will now be a regular place for me to go as it is beautiful and great for the kids with a brilliant water play area and pirates ship!! Loved it!!

Made a really good contact with the Pearly King of Camberwell and hope to help him have more of a presence in Camberwell which he is very keen to do!!
Hibs have announced a couple of Irish Tour dates for pre-season against Glentoran in the North and Shamrock Rovers in the Republic.
my cousin's husband Brian is a huge Hibs and Shamrock Rovers fan so am sending him over a new Hibs shirt although he may be swapping shirts at half time!! Hibs will be playing Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok and Preston North End at Easter Road so a good pre-season work out!!
