Southwark Youth Council, Move to Jewry Street, the Camber Well, Rotherhithe Pump House Museum and Hibs lose at home to Rangers!!

Yesterday I spent a really good day with Southwark Council Cabinet colleagues at London South Bank Universityfor the "Crystal Clear" Event with around 10 young people from Southwark Youth Council and local Youth Clubs around the Borough! We had Political Speed Dating and Question Time during the day and it was a great chance to talk to young people face to face and I hope we can do a lot more of it over the next 4 years!!!
Packed up at London Met and ready for the move to Jewry Street which is a lovely old building with lots of history and even a Roman Centurion Ghost so cant wait to move in next week!!!
I went along to an Open Day to see the remains of the original Camber Well and the guy in the picture John Chapple is very keen to restore it and even perhaps get water from the Well again which is a fantastic idea so am supporting him to see how we can do it!! Already planning the labels for the bottles (Del Boy like!) of Camberwell Spring water from the Camber Well!!!
Went to the Rotherhithe Pump House Museum to carry out a Health & Safety Inspection and have a chat with the Mangers and trustees and was very impressed and hope to be a Trustee myself in the near future and continue to support a brilliant local Museum doing so much for young people and the elderly!!
This is the Fete/Fun day Season with 2 in Brunswick Ward over the weekend on the D'Eynesford Estate and a Barbeque on the 73 Grove Lane Estate!! Weather was ok with rain staying away for most of the day!!!
Watched Hibs Vs rangers on Sky on Sunday and Easter Road looks fantastic with the new Stand open and the pitch widened!! Did not do us much good though going 3-0 to Gers with the key issue being the cheat Rangers Goalkeeper trying to get Riordan sent of by feigning a head butt, bizarrely the Referee booked them both but tempers then were lost and 2 players sent off before half time!! Disgraceful and I hope he is disciplined!! Great to hear the Hibs fan boo him for the rest of the match!!
