Having been critical of our beloved local council recently its worth saying that I am making thorough use of the new swim for £1 deal for kids during August and think its a fantastic initiative. So well done H&F Council.
In fact at Janet Adegoke Pool today I picked up this flyer for Summerfest'09 which is also an excellent initiative. Phoenix School, which its fair to say continues to have issues despite the miracles worked by its formidable headteacher, is currently the home to a co-operative food market among other things.
One or two of the offerings on this flyer might remind you of the severe challenges that remain for the youth of W12 though - and my goodness does this bring it home.
