Artburst Mini, a family learning programme, was awarded £4,000 from the Small Grants Fund to help build young children’s confidence

Not taken for granted ACKNEY charities and community groups can now apply for grants of up to £5,000 from the Council as two rounds of funding go live. Awards of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available from the small grants fund for voluntary and community groups. Applicants need to demonstrate how projects help improve the lives of residents by focusing on one of the following themes: reducing poverty; raising aspirations; promoting healthy living; making the borough safer; promoting mixed communities, or increasing community pride. Projects will need to be delivered between 1 October and 31 March next year. Deadline for applications is 12 noon on 13 May. Pots of up to £1,000 are also available through the community chest

If your organisation needs some extra help, then I would encourage you to apply for one of these Council grants grant for groups to run short-term projects or one-off activities that foster community, neighbourliness and pride. Projects must be delivered between 1 July and 31 March next year. Deadline for applications is 12 noon on 26 May. Last year’s small grants programme saw 22 groups awarded funding totalling £80,000; meanwhile the community chest grant delivered £13,816 of financial help to 15 local groups.

The Hawa Trust, which works with African and minority groups in Hackney on a range of projects, was awarded £900 to run music and dance sessions, as well as healthy cooking workshops. Hawa Sesay, from the Trust, said: “The project bridged the intergenerational gap between the younger and elderly generations through music and dance. All these have helped build a strong sense of community.” Artburst Mini, a family

learning programme (pictured), was awarded £4,000 to help build young children’s confidence, and language and communication skills. Amy Bicat, from the group, said: “The work enabled us to reach out to families on the doorstep of the Artburst Studio who did not have funds to pay to attend sessions.” Joanna Sumner, the Council’s Assistant Chief Executive, added: “There are lots of groups across Hackney with the ideas and energy to help make it an even better place. If your organisation needs some extra help, then I would encourage you to apply for one of these Council grants.”

A blast of colour

The light show at Hackney’s West Reservoir to launch Adidas’ Superstar Supercolour footwear collection. The venue is also popular for weddings

SPECTACULAR light show over Hackney’s West Reservoir formed the climax of the launch of a kaleidoscopic range of new trainers by a sportswear giant. Adidas built a stage over the water at the reservoir in Stoke Newington, and held an interactive laser and music display at the unique venue, which is owned by the Council and managed by its leisure contractor GLL. Clothes also appeared floating above the water as part of the launch of the new Superstar Supercolour footwear collection earlier this month. At the reservoir’s industrial pumphouse – an increasingly popular venue for events including wedding receptions – guests

Our venues have very quickly become some of the most sought-after in London saw a video address by US music legend Pharrell Williams (pictured inset), who helped create the rainbow range of trainers. They were invited to write on a ‘supercolour wheel’ doodle-board made from all 50 trainer shades, and there was also a ‘sneaker tree’ with new trainers appearing to grow on branches. The West Reservoir Centre is a sports and

education hub that hosts sailing and kayaking for adults and children. Facilities include a learning room for schools; seminar room, conference rooms and function room; and a waterfront cafe. The reservoir is also one of only a handful of places offering open water swimming in inner London. Kim Wright, the Council’s Corporate Director of

Health and Community Services, said: “Our venues have very quickly become some of the most soughtafter in London. It’s crucial we make the most of opportunities like this to generate revenue to help us keep supporting our facilities and green spaces for residents. “The fact that a global brand like Adidas saw the West Reservoir Centre and really liked it shows the calibre of our indoor and outdoor portfolio, and it is a great way of showcasing our borough and attracting investment in it.”

Duncan, who won both gold and bronze medals in the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, is also president of Swimathon, a nationwide swimming challenge. Joining the borough’s swimmers in the water, he said: “I absolutely love it, I’m so lucky to be the one that gets to visit swimmers all across the UK. It’s definitely one of my favourite times of the year, seeing so many people being inspired to get into the pool and push themselves.” For more info, or to donate, visit: www.swimathon.org

The fragility of life The 32-acre Abney Park Cemetery is celebrating its 175th anniversary with a series of free events N its magnificent Egyptian-style entranceway, hieroglyphics bear this message: ‘The Gates of the Abode of the Mortal Part of Man.’ A stark reminder of the fragility of life, the words are a suitably imposing welcome for visitors to one of the capital’s greatest burial grounds, Hackney’s Abney Park Cemetery, which is 175 years old. Some 200,000 souls have been laid to rest in the cemetery, once a landscaped masterwork, now a verymuch-loved wilderness in the heart of urban London.

[Abney Park] is an amazing natural resource titled ‘heroes of Abney’ including General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army; William Pennington, survivor of the Charge of the Light Brigade; and Victorian music hall performer George Leybourne, who sang ‘The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze’. More recently discovered is the tomb of Joanna Vassa, daughter of Olaudah Equiano, ‘The African’,

a prominent anti-slavery campaigner from Nigeria. Once historic parkland owned by the Abney family, the 32-acre graveyard was created in 1840 by the Abney Park Cemetery Company and designed by William Hoskins, a Professor of Architecture at King’s College London. At its inception, the park was literally an A-Z of nature. Trees ranging from the acer to the zanthoxylum

were planted and 1,000 varieties of roses were bedded. It was the elaborate vision of famous Hackney nurseryman George Loddiges and it laid the groundwork for the natural diversity seen there today. “Only a few of the original Loddiges trees remain,” says Deputy Chair of the Abney Park Trust, Alan Gartrell whose greatgrandparents are buried in the park. “But there are some 200 old trees and a veteran tree walk. There are also wonderful fungus growths and a profusion of wild flowers, as well as sparrowhawks, owls and woodpeckers, rare moths and bees amongst the

giraffes in nearby Yoakley Road, to the recentlylisted war memorial which commemorates the civilian dead of the Second World War. Uniquely, for its time, no Act of Parliament was invoked to create the park, nor was the ground consecrated. It meant burials could take place without the involvement of the established church and the park became popular among nondenominational families. It has been attracting non-conformist fact and fiction ever since. Oliver Cromwell’s corpse, legend has it, may be buried in the cemetery after

being disinterred from Westminster Abbey. His head, which graced a spike over Westminster Hall, was buried in Cambridge. More recently, a Seattlebased steampunk band named itself after the park, whilst tragic singer Amy Winehouse filmed the video for her hit ‘Back To Black’ in the cemetery. Alan adds: “The park is a place for people to walk, sit and exercise themselves and their pets. It is a cemetery which is still visited by families of those buried there and a source of interest both to those interested in the diversity of wildlife and the historical value of its monuments

and dead.” The Trust is set to hand back lease of the park to the Council on 20 May and the two will continue to work together to improve the cemetery and enhance its use and accessibility, including repairs to the chapel and a bid for Heritage Lottery Funding. In celebration of its 175th anniversary, a series of fun, free events are taking place from 8 to 17 May.

WO popular cultural venues in Hackney are bidding for a world famous artist to host a special event with them. Hackney Museum is in the running to work with the Nigerian born, borough-based artist Yinka Shonibare MBE and stage an exciting after-hours event in October. This would form part of Museums at Night, a biannual UK-wide festival, which aims to entice visitors into museums, galleries and heritage sites by putting on special evening events. Six internationally acclaimed artists have drawn up a shortlist of projects which they want to work on as part of the Connect! competition. The six winning projects will be decided by a public vote. Hackney Museum is hoping to work with

Yinka Shonibare describes himself as a ‘post-colonial’ hybrid

Shonibare on a collaborative installation to represent the ultimate Hackney ‘dish’. Should the museum win the vote, residents will get the chance to submit a recipe to create their perfect Hackney ‘supper’. Guests would be seated over one of the museum exhibits, an

Anglo-Saxon log boat, to have supper ‘in a way the artist chooses to interpret each recipe’. Ted Rogers, the Council’s Head of Libraries, Heritage and Culture, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to work with such prestigious artists.”

Sutton House has made it on to the shortlist to work with street artist Charley Uzzell Edwards, aka Pure Evil. He would both ‘interrogate and celebrate’ Sutton House’s past through a multimedia events programme of graffiti, artwork, photography and film, as well as a gig by Flowers in the Dustbin, which squatted the historic house during the 1980s. Online voting is open from 1 to 16 May. Museums at Night takes place on 30 and 31 October. It is co-ordinated by nonprofit cultural publishing organisation Culture24.

DELVE inside Hackney and explore the sights, sounds and tastes of the borough with a new 92 page pocket guide, free to pick-up in nearly 50 venues across town. Written by Helena Smith, Lonely Planet travel writer and blogger for Eat Hackney, and supported by the Council, the ‘Inside Hackney’ guide offers a taster of sights, food, shops, music, art, theatre and kids’ attractions, while focusing on the borough’s ‘independent vibe’. Thrown into the mix are profiles of Hackney’s neighbourhoods, its green spaces and local personalities. When asked what makes Hackney such a special destination, Helena said: “It is Hackney’s independent and creative spirit that is the spark. There are so many old and new venues and businesses, run by inspired people for whom money isn’t the main goal. People are following their passions in many different fields, and there is a collective buzz that is very energising.” ‘Inside Hackney’ is out now.

Game, set, match at Clissold IT was game, set and match to Hackney’s tennis players when former British number one, Anne Keothavong, came to Clissold Park. The charity fun day on 12 April was organised to raise money for Hackney City Tennis Clubs, which organises tennis activity in the borough across five different sites. Club coaches were joined by former British Davis Cup players to run three, one-hour coaching clinics, putting young players through their paces with warm-up activities before staging a match for the pubic. Among the tennis champs was Anne, who was born and raised in the borough and won a total of 20 International Tennis Federation singles titles before retiring as a professional player in 2013. Lunch was served in the newly opened Clissold Park Tennis Pavilion and £600 was raised, which will go toward the cost of providing CCTV for the new clubhouse.

Following a successful debut last June – which saw 12,500 runners pounding the streets of Hackney – this year’s race weekend kicks off on 9 May with a 5km course around Hackney Marshes for 2,000 runners who are new to the sport. The main event takes place the morning after, with the 13.1 mile half marathon starting and finishing at Hackney Marshes. An improved route will take in a

number of the borough’s landmarks, with thousands of supporters set to line the streets to cheer runners on. The race starts at 9am, with elite athletes expected to finish just after 10am. The majority of runners should complete the course between 10.45am and 11.45am. Spectator points for the Council-backed event will be located at Hackney Marshes; Mabley Green; Hackney Downs; Hackney Town Hall Square; Broadway Market; Well Street Common; Hackney Wick and areas throughout Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Every penny I raise will be making a difference in the lives of local people Live music, refreshments and family entertainment will line the route, with a carnival atmosphere set to see the runners around

the course. Last year’s inaugural race delivered impressive results with Kenyan Peter Emase winning the elite men’s race in a time of 01:04:19. He said: “It was a good, flat course. It was a very well organised race and it was nice to run in Hackney.” Many of the runners will raise thousands of pounds for

their chosen causes. This includes the official race charities Cancer Research UK and The East End Community Foundation (EECF). Ben Fisher, who is running for EECF, said: “I’ve been volunteering with EECF which has really opened my eyes about the inequality happening across east London. It’s fantastic that every penny I raise will be making a difference in the lives of local people.” Youngsters will also be getting involved as they complete the final leg of a Hackney schools’ challenge. Pupils have been challenged to run a mile, once or twice a week, in order to complete

12 miles before race day. They will run a final 1.1 miles over the race course, to complete the equivalent of a half marathon, from 9.30am on 10 May. Many of Hackney’s streets will be closed from 7am to create a trafficfree route. Roads will re-open once runners have completed each section and when it is safe and feasible to do so. Most roads should be open again by 2pm.

‘I’ve had to fight for my rights’

Chrisann Jarrett from Hackney was announced ‘Young Woman of the Year’ at The Women on the Move Awards last month

By Hattie Worsley

CAME to the UK aged eight,” says Chrisann Jarrett. “My mum had come a year earlier, because she was determined to study and support her family. It was December when I joined her and it was the first time I ever saw snow. I remember driving away from the airport feeling disappointed – it looked a bit dull and mucky.” Chrisann was determined, from the start, to work hard and not to disappoint. She recalls: “Coming to the UK was our opportunity to succeed. We arrived straight into Stoke Newington and it was a great place to be as a recent arrival. “I remember my first day at school and feeling like I didn’t stand out after all – there were so many different accents, colours and cultures in the playground. I had some wonderful teachers at Clapton Girls’

I

Academy who encouraged us not to limit ourselves.” At the academy she was made head girl and began to look into university courses. She says: “I saw a leaflet about all the amazing public events going on at the London School of Economics (LSE). I remember gazing at all these incredible speakers and thinking: that’s where I want to be.” The day she learnt that she had earned the A-level results to be accepted into that university was ‘amazing’. She recalls: “I actually fell off my chair when I found out that I’d got in.” The elation, however, didn’t last long. She explains: “I sent off all the forms to apply for student finance, but I never heard back from them.” Her school put her in contact with an organisation called Just For Kids Law. Through them, she discovered that because her immigration

The first time I attended a lecture it felt like I’d won the lottery. Finally, I can do what I wanted to do: study status had not been settled, she wouldn’t be accepted as a ‘home student’ and would have to pay £16,000 in tuition fees every year, without any support from student finance. “It was like being hit by a truck. I had worked so hard for so long and now everything I had aimed for was being ripped away. I asked the university to defer my place for a year, but in my heart I knew I would never be able to find that

money. I thought I would never hear from LSE ever again,” she says. But quitting is not in Chrisann’s DNA. Instead, she began an internship at Just for Kids Law and launched a campaign, Let Us Learn, fighting to bring attention to the many migrant children in a similar situation. She explains: “I thought: at least if I can’t study law, I can do something this way. I met so many young people who’d

had their ambitions ripped away from them. It was so sad for them, and so sad for the country too, because these people would never contribute to the extent that they might have.” It felt good to do something positive but, she was also saddened. “I felt different to my peers, somehow less than them. It was so demoralising, so difficult not to become disengaged,” she said. Then her luck changed. Chrisann said: “I got an e-mail from the LSE, I had to pinch myself, and then I had to send the e-mail to colleagues just to check that I’d read it correctly.” She had. LSE offered her two scholarships, one covering her entire tuition fees, and another for her living expenses. Since that day, Chrisann’s life has been transformed. Last month, she was named ‘Young Woman of the Year’, receiving rapturous applause from the audience at The Women on

the Move Awards. Founded to recognise migrant and refugee women who make an exceptional contribution to UK society, the awards praised Chrisann for her tireless campaigning. She has also started her course at LSE. “The first time I attended a lecture it felt like I’d won the lottery. Finally, I could do what I wanted to do: study,” she says. Her ambition doesn’t stop here. She is still working on her campaign. “I might have found a way to pursue my ambitions. But so many people I met along the way are still stuck. At first, I didn’t want to talk about my scholarship, because I didn’t want to rub it in. But one of my friends said to me ‘it gives us all hope,’ so I keep trying to change things for them,” she says. Beyond that, she wants to forge a career in human rights law. “I’ve had to fight for my rights and now I want to help others do the same,” she says.

Each packet contains up to 30 different summer flowering seed varieties which will add a splash of colour to any garden, windowsill or balcony. Residents can sow the seeds from April to June, and the flowers should appear from June to October this year, then grow again next spring. The packets also double up as information leaflets which promote the Council’s free garden waste collection service. Garden waste is collected every two weeks and turned into compost which is used in Hackney’s parks and allotments. Most homes with gardens get this service, but those that do not can book a free bulky waste collection instead. Residents can check if they can take advantage of a garden waste collection, order a free brown bin or reusable bag, or book a bulky waste collection, by visiting: www.hackney. gov.uk/recycling

Grants of up to £6,000 are available to residents through the Smart Homes scheme, which closes 30 April

Smart, green homes R ESIDENTS are being urged to take advantage of a scheme which offers them up to £6,000 to help make properties more energy efficient. Applications for the Smart Homes scheme close at the end of this month. It is designed for properties built before 1930.

The Smart Homes grant is a fantastic opportunity for homeowners to make their period homes more comfortable

Hackney-based company, completed the first project undertaken through the scheme earlier this year, providing solid wall insulation to a Haringey home (pictured above). Company founder Patrick McCool said: “The Smart Homes grant is a fantastic opportunity for

homeowners to make their period homes much more comfortable to live in and much more energy efficient, bringing down their energy bills and making their home a better place to live.” Smart Homes grants are available for homeowners, private landlords and private tenants in six

London boroughs – including Hackney – and the deadline for application is 30 April. To be eligible, residents need to pay a minimum of 25 per cent towards the total cost of the work which should be completed by the end of September.

Inconsiderate dog owners fined for failing to clean up after their pets in Clapton TWO people have been fined and one issued with a warning for failing to clean up after their dogs in a Clapton park. Daubeney Fields, also known as Clapton Park, is popular with children and families as it has a large playground, skate park and sports pitches. However, many people’s

enjoyment of the park has recently been spoilt by some inconsiderate dog owners. Daubeney Fields Forever park user group contacted the Council and put small flags next to dog poos to draw attention to the problem. Council officers visited the park earlier this month and took action against three dog owners.

Gerry Tissier, Chair of Daubeney Fields Forever, said: “Eight out of 10 dog owners who use the park clean up after their pets. Sadly, a small minority fail to bag and bin their dog’s mess. They spoil it for everyone else and create a health hazard. The Council’s crack-down gives a message that dog fouling

will not be tolerated.” The fine for dog fouling is £80. Anyone who is caught more than once can be taken to court and fined up to £1,000. Those with any information about people not picking up dog poo can e-mail: [email protected] hackney.gov.uk; or call: 020 8356 4810.

PREVIEW Product 27 April-23 May, Arcola Theatre, 24 Ashwin Street, E8 3DL A HOLLYWOOD producer pitches a romantic thriller to an actress, but is it the script that will save her career, or a crass and offensive flop? The latter, it quickly transpires: ‘Mohammed and Me’ features a 9/11 widow meeting a Muslim man, falling in love and, er, joining Al Qaeda. It is the producer, Leah’s attempts to sell this stinking script that makes the play so compelling. Olivia Poulet, star of ‘The Thick of It’, gives

a performance that has been described as ‘killer’ by Time Out. And a good thing too: she is the only person on stage for the duration of this 45 minute monologue. Produced by Inside Intelligence, this dark satire on Hollywood culture is written by critically acclaimed writer Mark Ravenhill.

News in brief New head of education starts

‘Best start in life’ S

ANNE Canning has started her tenure as the Council’s new Director of Education and Head of Hackney Learning Trust. She brings a wealth of experience, having worked as a maths teacher and head teacher in schools across London for 30 years, before becoming Service Head for Learning and Achievement at Tower Hamlets Council, where she was responsible for raising educational standards. Anne said: “I am excited to take up my post at Hackney Council and to work with such an innovative and forward thinking team at the Hackney Learning Trust. “My priorities are supporting all of our schools to aim high and continue being ambitious for all pupils across the borough.” Council Chief Executive, Tim Shields, added: “Our schools have transformed beyond recognition in the last decade and I’m sure Anne will build on this.”

Orchard School secured a £25,000 award to continue its work in providing a rounded academic and extracurricular education

CHOOLS across Hackney are celebrating big wins at the annual Department for Education’s Pupil Premium Awards, which recognise excellence in education for young people from all backgrounds. Five Hackney schools were presented with cash prizes for demonstrating how they use their pupil premium grant creatively to increase attainment across the board. The central government grant is aimed at helping schools to narrow the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Schools get an amount of grant money for each

It’s important that all young people receive the same standard of education and opportunities

pupil who is eligible for free school meals. Orchard School, in E9, was a regional finalist, receiving a £25,000 award to continue its work in providing a ‘rounded academic and extracurricular education’. The school is in the top 100 performing schools in the country in terms of the progress made by students between the ages of seven and 11. The school uses its pupil

premium grant to fund smaller teaching groups; homework clubs; music tuition; one-to-one reading support; therapeutic support; and after-school clubs. Head of school, Rachel Davie, said: “The whole school is very proud of this award. Everyone at Orchard works very hard to make sure children get the best start in life.” Four other Hackney schools were nominated

and received £1,000 each. They were: Northwold, William Patten, St John and St James’ Church of England, and St Paul’s with St Michael’s primaries. Head of Hackney Learning Trust, Anne Canning, said: “This is great news and the schools involved should be very proud of their staff, pupils and parents. We want to give every child in Hackney the best possible start in life, and our schools are helping to do that by using their pupil premium creatively, in ways that benefit both pupils and families. “It’s important that all young people receive the same standard of education and opportunities.”

Petchey charity fundraiser By Dila Tumer

A GROUP of students from Petchey Academy held a series of fundraising events to support a homeless shelter. The team of Year 12 pupils worked with Envision, a youth empowerment charity, to structure their project targeted at tackling homelessness. After meeting staff from Caritas Anchor House, in Canning Town, east London, the students helped raise £280 for the shelter, which helps up to 220 people a year by providing food and shelter. The students arranged a Zumba event, a bake sale and a teachers versus students football match to raise funds. For more info about the charity, or to donate, visit: www. caritasanchorhouse.org.uk

A GROUP of young people from Hackney learnt some new tricks over the Easter holidays as part of an ongoing programme to help build their confidence. The 10 to 11-year-olds spent two afternoons at the National Centre for Circus

Arts, in Hoxton, learning how to juggle with a diabolo (pictured left), balance on a trapeze and walk a tight wire. The scheme, called Families First, was delivered by education charity Inspire! The aim was to support the youngsters with their move from primary to secondary school by having a range of workshops and outings that

helped build their self-esteem. Over a three month period, the pupils received one-to-one mentoring from sixth form students at Clapton Girls’ Academy and BSix College, which allowed the children to discuss any concerns they had about life at secondary school. Jonny Boux, Director of Inspire!, said: “Families First has already enabled us to help

50 young people over the past two years. “These pupils would benefit greatly from further support during that first year at secondary school, so we will continue working with this group over the summer holiday period and into their first year at secondary school.”

News in brief Young people given a taste of the creative industries

Young people ran a poetry takeaway van at Hoxton Street Market as part of a project by education charity Ministry of Stories. Rebecca, Emmanuella and Grace cook up a personalised poem for passers-by

Cooking up poetry By Dila Tumer

OXTON Street Market got poetic as young people delivered bespoke verse to passers-by. The group of eight to 11-year-olds manned a ‘poetry takeaway’ from a converted burger van and composed rhymes for visitors to the market. The ‘junior apprentice poetry chefs’ chatted with customers in order to discover a few key details about them before

H

We love nothing more than surprising the public with ...creative writing cooking up a personalised poem within 10 minutes. The event on 11 April was run by education charity Ministry of Stories (MoS),

which is based in Hoxton, and uses storytelling to inspire eight to 18-year-olds to help build confidence and communication skills. Lucy Macnab, co-founder and

director of MoS, said: “For almost five years, Ministry of Stories has unleashed children’s imaginations through the power of storytelling. “We love nothing more than surprising the public with the untold power of creative writing and on Saturday we had laughter.”

THE winners of a unique initiative, aimed at giving young people a taste of working in the creative industries, have been announced. The Council joined forces with educational charity D&AD and advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty, to launch the ‘NowCreate: Hackney’ project, aimed at giving young people a greater understanding of the design and advertising world. NowCreate set a brief to challenge young people to design a product or service to help tackle social isolation for older people living in Hackney. Each team of 14 to 18-year-olds were asked to conduct research and use their own knowledge to develop an idea to meet the brief. A two minute film was then produced to present their ideas to a judging panel of experts. Shortlisted entries were given the opportunity to work with staff from agency ustwo to develop their ideas further. The final pitches were then delivered at their offices. The winners were: Hackney Community College: ‘Convo’ – an app that helps older people with hearing difficulties be more independent. Skinners’ Academy: ‘Open Up Your School’ – a project that invites older people into schools to meet pupils and learn from each other. BSix: ‘Culture Cook’ – a competition that brings a range of young and old people together in pairs to share, learn and create recipes from their cultural backgrounds. Each of the winners will have their work profiled at key D&AD events in the summer.

Hackney teenager wins prestigious Diana Award for her work on child poverty

Eniola Festus (far right) with other members of the commission

A HACKNEY teenager has won the prestigious Diana Award in recognition of her work to improve the lives of others. Eniola Festus, 14, a pupil at Haggerston School, is one of 16 young people from across the UK, leading the first-ever Children’s Commission on Poverty. The group was presented with the award, which was

inspired by Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Eniola said: “It is a huge honour to receive the Diana Award. Over three million children in the UK are living in poverty and this award is an important recognition of our work, and of our goal

to help tackle this terrible situation and improve these children’s lives.” The Children’s Commission has been working for 18 months, investigating the hidden costs of school and its effect on children in poverty, as well as conducting research on the huge numbers of children in this country living in cold, damp homes.

Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of The Children’s Society, which is supporting the Commission, said: “This award shows that these young people’s determination to expose the brutal reality of poverty facing millions of children in the UK is being heard.” For more info, visit: www.diana-award.org.uk

News in brief New health hubs now open in estate community centres

John Fitzgerald, 86, from Stoke Newington, used the Council’s Fit 4 Health exercise after stroke scheme to aid his recovery

Post-stroke health care PROGRAMME that helps people who have suffered a stroke to improve their physical and mental health has secured a major funding boost. The Council successfully applied for £116,500 from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund for the Fit 4 Health scheme. It supports residents to improve their quality of life by increasing their physical activity levels. For the past five years, the project has significantly improved participants’ wellbeing by helping them lose weight; lower blood pressure and

A

Thanks to Fit 4 Health John has now got his sense of humour back blood sugar levels; and increase strength, flexibility, balance and happiness. John Fitzgerald, 86, from Stoke Newington, used the service when he suffered a stroke last summer. After completing a six-week programme with Homerton hospital’s Therapy At Home Team, he was referred to the Councilrun scheme. John underwent an eightweek programme of circuit

and gym-based exercise sessions at Clissold Leisure Centre under the supervision of Fit 4 Health after-stroke specialist instructors. These sessions included a warm-up; cardiovascular exercises; light resistance movements; a cool-down and an opportunity to socialise afterwards. John said his confidence and fitness had greatly increased as a result of the

help he received. Adding: “Despite having had a knee replacement some years ago, I’ve noticed my walking has improved, which hit the nail on the head for me.” His partner, Ruth, added: “Thanks to Fit 4 Health John has now got his sense of humour back.”

FOUR new health hubs have now opened in community centres in Hackney estates, offering free health services and activities under one roof. The hubs, which are funded by the Council and run by charity Shoreditch Trust, are located in Pembury, New Kingshold, Marsh Hill and Stamford Hill estates. Each hub has a health coach who works with residents for up to 12 weeks to help them identify their health goals and access services. The health improvement workers from Homerton hospital offer NHS health checks; stop smoking support; healthy weight management; alcohol support; information about and support to register with the Healthy Start For All scheme; and contraception and sexual health support. Additionally, some community centres also offer free and affordable exercise classes, and free ‘cook and eat’ sessions, where residents learn to make healthy, affordable meals then sit down and enjoy the food together. Hackney Health Hubs Project Manager, Lana Simpson, said: “We are really excited that the full range of health improvement services is available at each of the four hubs, and look forward to seeing many residents using them over the coming months.” The hubs will operate for an initial two year pilot period.

Council awards £370k to community projects to improve health and happiness A SHARE of £370,000 in funding to support healthy living projects in Hackney has been awarded to 32 community groups and projects. Launched last September, the Council’s Healthier Hackney Fund aims to support new approaches to tackling some of the borough’s most complex health challenges including

smoking, mental health, substance misuse and sexual health. Almost £291,000 will be awarded to 13 organisations which have demonstrated how their projects will make an impact to improve mental health or prevent young people from smoking. Just over £68,000 will be awarded to nine groups

to tackle substance misuse and improve sexual health amongst high-risk groups. The remaining £10,000 will go to 10 community groups to kick-start neighbourhood projects that support residents with their general health. Dr Penny Bevan, the Council’s Director of Public Health, said: “The Healthier Hackney Fund

aims to support community and voluntary groups and organisations to develop innovative and exciting approaches to address some of our most complex health problems.” Another round of applications for funding opens in September. For more info, visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/ healthier-hackney-fund

responsibility of another person or organisation, councillors can often point people in the right direction and tell residents who they need to see. Hackney has 57 councillors representing areas called wards – see map below.

Hackney has an executive Mayor, Jules Pipe, who is not a councillor, but is directly elected by the entire borough. The Mayor is the political leader of the Council, overseeing the budget and all Council services. Civic and ceremonial duties are undertaken by the Speaker of Hackney who is elected annually MAYOR JULES from among the borough’s 57 councillors. The current Speaker is Cllr Sharon Patrick. PIPE

RESIDENTS are being encouraged to have their say on two conservation area proposals for Dalston town centre and nearby Albion Square. The Council believes these proposals will help to preserve and enhance the appearance of both locations as areas of special architectural and historical interest. The proposal for a new Dalston Conservation Area is centred on one of the oldest roads in Britain – Ermine Street – which dates from Roman times and is now known as Kingsland High Street. Built as a shopping street, many of the buildings are Victorian and Edwardian, including rows of purpose built terraces. The proposed area will stretch from Tottenham Road in the south, to Somerford Grove in the

north. The proposals for Albion Square detail a small extension to the existing conservation area boundary to include Queensbridge Primary School. A number of informative, community drop-in sessions will be held locally and information will be available in libraries and online. The consultation is open until 25 May. John Allen, the Council’s Assistant Director of Planning and Regulatory

Services, said: “Conservation areas are important in preserving the borough’s historic past, which includes its architecture, whilst encouraging new development to use materials and design in keeping with the area’s built environment.” For more info on the proposals, visit: www. hackney.gov.uk/dalston-ca; and: www.hackney.gov.uk/ albion-ca

On the first day after the end of this period (“the vesting date”) the land described in the declaration will, subject to what is said in paragraph 4, vest in the Council together with the right to enter on the land and take possession of it. Every person on whom the Council could have served a notice to treat in respect of his interest in the land (other than a tenant under one of the tenancies described in paragraph 3) will be entitled to claim compensation for the acquisition of his interest in the land, with interest on the compensation from the vesting date. Modifications with respect to certain tenancies 3 In the case of certain tenancies, the position stated above is subject to modifications. The modifications apply where the tenancy is either a “minor tenancy” i.e. a tenancy for a year or a yearly tenancy or a lesser interest, or “a long tenancy which is about to expire”. The latter expression means a tenancy granted for an interest greater than a minor tenancy but having on the vesting date a period still to run which is not more than the period specified in the declaration for this purpose (which must not be more than a year). In calculating how long a tenancy has still to run, where an option to renew or to terminate it is available to either party, it shall be assumed that the landlord will take every opportunity open to him to terminate the tenancy while the tenant will use every opportunity to retain or renew his interest. 4 The modifications are that the Council may not exercise the right of entry referred to in paragraph 2 in respect of land subject to a tenancy described in paragraph 3 unless they first serve a notice to treat in respect of the tenancy and then serve every occupier of the land with a notice of their intention to enter and take possession after the period (not less than 14 days from the service of the notice) specified in the notice. The right of entry will be exercisable at the end of that period. The vesting of the land will be subject to the tenancy until the end of that period or until the tenancy comes to an end, whichever happens first.
