Young finalists in the Alter Ego talent competition at Hackney Empire were ecstatic when they got the chance to share the stage with big names in urban music like Yxng Bane

THE Discover Young Hackney festival kicked off in fine style with the hotly contested Alter Ego talent competition, which took place at a packed out

Hackney Empire on 19 May. MTV’s Kat B and Radar Radio’s Snoochie Shy hosted the proceedings, with DJ Semo from Urban FM keeping the music flowing

throughout the evening. The nine young finalists, including singers, dancers, rappers and spoken wordsmiths, wowed the audience, as did guest appearances from the likes

of violinist Daj Jordan, dance troupes Steppaz and Avant Garde Dance, and urban artists Yxng Bane, Big Tobz and Vianni. Discover Young Hackney aims to encourage

young people in the borough to try out a wide range of activities and unleash their creative potential. For more on the glittering night see pages 8-9.

Spread the word... I T’S back, bigger and better than ever before, from 2 to 4 June, Stoke Newington Literary Festival will be turning the neighbourhood into a literary wonderland. Founded in 2010 to celebrate Stoke Newington’s radical and literary history, it has attracted bigger and bigger names each year. Suitably enough, since it will be taking place the weekend before the general election, this year’s programme includes some serious political heavyweights. Catch Jonathan Freedland discussing the blurred line between political fact and fiction with literary novelist Richard T Kelly. Or watch Gary Younge discuss his explosive new book ‘Another Day In The Death Of America’

Cool in wool: Richard and Nancy

THE festival has been a success in part because of help from local librarian Richard Boon and a great relationship with Hackney Libraries. Before he became a local librarian 20 years ago, Richard managed influential punk band Buzzcocks. The festival dubbed him the ‘world’s coolest librarian’. However, he always asserted that the true owner of that title was Seattle-based Nancy Pearl, who had an action figure made in her honour, in recognition of her work to get people across

with Guardian columnist Suzanne Moore. Meanwhile, professional American-in-London Michael Goldfarb analyses Trump’s latest antics, though what those might be

America to read. The festival couldn’t get an action figure of Richard made but it did manage to knit one of him, and of Nancy, in 2013. Fast forward four years and festival director Liz Vater discovered Nancy was in the UK, so on 19 May, she visited Stoke Newington to meet the ‘other’ coolest librarian and take her knitted action figure home to Seattle.

is anyone’s guess. Catherine Meyer, Nimco Ali, Harini Iyengar and Andi Oliver will all be ruminating on ways to make powerful institutions more diverse, while Owen

Jones will be breaking things down for the politically perplexed. Since laughter is the best tonic, you can also catch some top notch political satire and comedy: David Quantick, Martin Rowson and Suzanne Moore are doing a Friday Night Satire Special while Robin Ince’s insightful comedy wraps the weekend up. For younger readers, Michael Rosen will be making a guest appearance, while elsewhere the festival takes in topics from gardening and five-a-side football, to beer and pop music.

News in brief General Election candidates ANS lined Mare Street to get a look at living legend and proud East Londoner, Dame Barbara Windsor, who was in the borough to unveil the Hackney Empire Walk of Fame on 25 May. Dame Barbara brought a bit of her trademark ‘Carry On’ glamour and sass as she addressed crowds and gave her signatory cheeky wiggle to onlookers and paparazzi. Hackney will be giving Hollywood a run for its money with the walk of fame, which remembers all the famous names that have graced the boards of Hackney Empire, as well as eminent musicians, directors, producers and philanthropists who came from Hackney and East London. Dame Barbara was among the first to be honoured with a name plate, along with the Empire’s architect Frank Matcham, and theatre manager Oswald Stoll. The rest of the plaques will be installed by the Council over the next year. She said: “I could not have felt more proud. Of course, with my roots being an East London lady and Hackney Empire always being a part of my life, this wonderful tribute made it even more special. “It was the first theatre I was taken to as a child by my family.” She continued: “Mum, Dad, Nanny, Grandad and I absolutely loved it and could not wait to go again. “I am fortunate enough to have appeared here and experienced the incredible atmosphere and welcoming audience. “I am very grateful and

Dame unveils walk of fame It was the first theatre I was taken to as a child and I absolutely loved it and could not wait to go again proud to be a part of the history of Hackney Empire which is known as ‘The People’s Palace’.” The walk of fame was conceived as a way of paying tribute to the rich history of theatre and entertainment in

the borough. It will be maintained jointly by Hackney Empire and the Council. Hackney Empire Chief Executive, Clarie Middleton, said: “I’m delighted to launch this new project celebrating

Outstanding nursery’s open day ST PAUL’S with St Michael’s Church of England Primary School is holding an open morning for parents interested in finding out about its nursery, which currently has places available.

It is in the top 10 per cent nationally for Key Stage One results. The school recently impressed Ofsted inspectors, who judged it ‘outstanding’, saying: “The reception class and nursery abound with intriguing activities aimed at encouraging children to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world.” The open day will take place on 16 June, from 9.15am to 11.45am, at 57a Brougham Road, E8 4PB.

The season of events will help raise awareness of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and encourage residents of all ages to get involved with some of the great activities taking place throughout the month. There are an estimated 300,000 Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in Britain, with a community of close to 800 in Hackney, including 400 children. There will be lots of fun-filled, interactive family events throughout the month that will explore the history of one of Hackney’s oldest communities; from a lively Irish dance workshop and Gypsy singa-long, to crocheting and boxing skills. Despite having a history in London spanning the past 500 years, most people know little of the rich culture of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

HACKNEY’S Trading Standards team participated in a nationwide operation designed to disrupt rogue traders this month. Operation Liberal, in which the Council joined forces with the police in the 12th annual operation of its kind, is designed to disrupt the activity of rogue traders, who prey on elderly or vulnerable victims, charging vast sums of money to complete shoddy building or maintenance work. Last year’s nationwide operation saw the arrest of around 300 people, nearly £3million worth of property recovered, and over 5,000 vehicles inspected. There has recently been a sharp increase in the number of reported doorstep rogue traders in Hackney, with Trading Standards recently saving two elderly residents a combined total of £22,000. The operation coincides with the launch of Hackney’s ‘Good Neighbours Stop Rogue Traders’ campaign, which encourages residents to look out for unexpected building work outside a vulnerable neighbour’s property. Anyone concerned about a neighbour being the victim of a rogue trader can call: 020 8356 4926. For more information, visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/ trading-standards

Benjamin Ogbebor with his winning self-portrait

Unknown artist wins top prize A HACKNEY resident has beaten established art industry names to win the 2017 Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize. Part-time artist, Benjamin Ogbebor, 41, received the £10,000 cash prize, coming out top from among the record number of more than 1,200 entries. On receiving the call about his win, Ogbebor said: “I was so surprised, especially knowing the calibre of previous winners such as Shanti Panchal, Thomas Newbolt and Celia Paul, to be ranked alongside them was totally unbelievable, I’m overjoyed.” As a self-taught painter, his previous portraits are of family, friends, artists and people in his community that inspire him in various ways. Ogbebor, a reprographic operator, was born in London, but moved to Nigeria as a child. He returned to the UK in his 20s and graduated from the University of East London with a first class degree in Graphic Fine Art. He said: “This win is totally life changing for me. I will be using the prize money on materials and a state-of-theart camera before taking a trip abroad to see family.”

Recognition is well deserved H ACKNEY thanked its unsung heroes at the Mayor’s Civic Awards, which took place in the Town Hall on 24 May. The annual awards aim Who: Janette Collins What for: Improving the lives and outcomes of young people through The Crib youth club Profile: Known as ‘Mamma Hackney’, Janette founded youth project The Crib with her friend Karlene Fontilio in 1999. It reaches out to young people, between the ages of 10 and 21, from all backgrounds. Her experiences of growing up in Hackney, having a baby at 14 and falling in with a gang, spurred her on

to recognise and celebrate some of the fantastic people who live and work in the borough and take pride in the amazing things they achieve every day. Mayor of Hackney,

Philip Glanville, presented the awards to three welldeserving winners: Janette Collins, Bobby Kasanga and Felicia Ogunleye. The Mayor said: “Hackney is the great

place it is today thanks to the hard work of those who go the extra mile for their community. “These awards help celebrate Hackney’s civic heroes, and not only give

a much deserved recognition for their efforts, but will hopefully inspire more people to get involved and make a lasting difference to the Hackney community.”

to set up the youth project, which helps young people find work, stay in education and promotes awareness of gun and knife violence. She said: “I want to teach young people compassion, and show them how they can be part of social change and be the difference in their communities. “Young people are our future, giving them a positive space to grow into themselves, such as in the Crib, means a positive future for us all.”

Who: Felicia Ogunleye What for: Going the extra mile as a Hackney befriender and volunteering to help vulnerable people Profile: Felicia began volunteering in Nigeria in 1998 and she hasn’t stopped since. As well as fundraising for the British Red Cross, Felicia also volunteers at her local church. For the past 14 years she has provided food for homeless people through the church as well as giving

support to other vulnerable people in the community. Felicia also volunteers for the Hackney befriending service. Despite suffering with mobility issues, she still calls on over 20 people a week. Felicia said: “Although I am 73 in August, I will not stop volunteering. I love it, I am still doing it, it is in my blood. I would say to anyone if you have one or two hours a week to spare, become a befriender. Volunteer, it’s really worth it.”

Who: Bobby Kasanga What for: Helping the community through sport with Hackney Wick FC Profile: After spending nearly eight years in prison, Bobby turned his life around when he formed Hackney Wick FC in 2015, including residents at all levels of the club, from players, to co-operative club owners. Bobby makes sure every member volunteers in the community for at least two hours a week, and uses the club to support social change, from playing Stonewall FC

during LGBT History Month, to using ethically sourced footballs and helping to set up a women’s team. He said: “I started Hackney Wick FC to give back to the community and afford young talented players the opportunity to play football at a decent level, steering them away from a life of crime. “It was also to give Hackney its very own semi-professional football club, which I hope will unify the many diverse cultures under the banner of ‘Our borough, Our club’.”

Hackney is one of the most diverse places in the UK. In this regular feature, we profile the borough’s great & good or just plain interesting ALFWAY through my interview with Tom Panagiotopoulos, head teacher at St Paul’s with St Michael’s C of E Primary School, there is a knock at the door. Six children appear, wearing waterproofs, wellies and enormous grins, and heaving a plastic bucket full of glistening lettuce leaves. “Wow, did you just pick those in your gardening session?” asks Tom, standing up to admire their treasure. The children nod. He adds: “Where are you taking them now?” The children say they are heading to the kitchens. “So they’ll go straight into your lunches. Isn’t that special?” beams Tom. In fact, there is a lot that can be said to be special about the school in Brougham Road, E8. This year, Ofsted inspectors pronounced it ‘outstanding’, heaping praise on the ‘excellent subject knowledge’ of its teachers, the ‘exemplary’ behaviour and development of its pupils and a school life that ‘broadens their cultural experiences and enables them to set challenging ambitions for their future lives.’ You would think that the school was hideously oversubscribed. Yet despite being just a stone’s throw away from Broadway Market, many have not heard of it because it is so tucked away. There is not a single road bordering the school’s site. Instead, you walk down a modest drive and are met with an oasis of green. There are fruit trees

Outstanding achievement and hazelnut trees, a new eco-building for reception children, vast playground for the nursery (separately awarded an outstanding early years status by Ofsted), sports court and Victorian building. “It’s quite a lot for us to maintain, particularly since we are single form entry, so there are just 30 children in each year. But it is so lovely for the kids,” says Tom. It is this atmosphere of warmth and security that

We want to get children to a place where they themselves believe in their own potential to do extraordinary things Tom prizes above all. He explains: “Our staff and children work exceptionally hard to produce outstanding levels of achievement. “But that’s not enough. We want to get children to a place where they themselves believe in their own potential to do extraordinary things.” As well as gardening, every child in the school runs for 15 minutes every day, and twice a term, a

whole day is devoted to a huge art project. Last year, the school choir was invited to sing in St Paul’s Cathedral. “I joined myself, in order to encourage more boys to take part. Equality is really important here, we encourage girls to take part and excel in activities that are perceived as being ‘for boys’ and vice versa,” says Tom. Each year, those children voted on to the school

council are taken on a trip ‘to experience democracy in action’. Tom says: “I take them to Whitehall, the Houses of Parliament, we even secured an invitation to 10 Downing Street. I want them to understand that they have power to make real change happen.” That’s essential to Tom: “We want to produce children who know how to overcome obstacles with a positive outlook.” It seems to be working. In their report, Ofsted praised a teaching style that gives children ‘an unerringly positive’ attitude to learning. They are positive about the school, too. “Students who I taught when I first joined the

school are now sending their own children here,” says Tom. Perhaps that’s why he himself has stayed at the school for so long? “Yes,” he agrees. Adding: “This place just has a special atmosphere. I just want more people to benefit from it now. We have spaces available in our nursery. Just look at those happy little people, learning in such a beautiful, natural setting.” No wonder people never want to leave.

THE GREEN GENIE

All your green questions answered Q: I moved into a flat with a garden last year and am going to clear it out. What can I do with all the grass and cuttings? Some of my neighbours have got brown wheelie bins, can I have one? A: Yes, the Council provides bins and reusable bags for storing garden waste, which is collected every two weeks. All food and garden waste collected in Hackney is delivered to a composting facility where it is broken down into compost and used in parks, allotments and gardens. To order a wheelie bin and reusable bags, visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/ garden-waste Those without internet access can call: 020 8356 6688.

Tree cheers! Clockwise from above: 1. The team takes a soup break; 2. A dead hedge; 3. A hazel stool and dead hedge; 4. Birch compartment; 5. A Tree Musketeer getting down to hard work

REE Musketeers, a group of volunteers from Hackney, won the Community Woodland Award at the 2017 London Tree & Woodland Awards. The event took place at London City Hall on 24 May to celebrate nine award category winners in their efforts to preserve trees in and around London. Tree Musketeers received the award for the outstanding work they do maintaining Wick Woodland, next to Hackney Marshes. Planted in 1997 between the Lee Navigation,

The Council has started working more closely with us so we can do even more to improve Hackney A12 and Homerton Road, Wick Woodland contains a mixture of older, statuesque trees and younger woodland. The area provides a vital habitat for wildlife and is thought to contain one of Hackney’s few remaining hedgehog populations. Tree Musketeers works with local people, the Council and other organisations to

promote care for the woodland. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to attend workshops to help plant and maintain the trees in Wick Woodland and other parks and green spaces in the borough. Close to 300 people have participated in workshops in the woods since 2007 giving more than 6,000 hours of volunteer time. Almost everyone who attends has commented on how rewarding it is to contribute to a big

5 community project such as Wick Woodlands. Russell Miller, Tree Musketeers activities co-ordinator, said: “This award is further recognition of the amazing work done by Tree Musketeers. “We engage hundreds of people every year in planting and caring for trees in the borough. “The Council has recently started working more closely with us so we can do even more to improve Hackney and the lives of those living here.”

Computer saying no? Get it repaired for free THE Council’s Repair and Re-use Day returns to London Fields on Saturday 24 June. The event, now in its fourth year, aims to help residents reduce waste and save money by getting faulty electrical items – including laptops – fixed for free and swapping unwanted items for

something new. As well as getting things fixed, people can also pick up something they need. Visitors to the event don’t have to give something to take something. Hackney Fixers co-organiser, Friederike Hanish, said: “Helping people learn how to fix their electronics in the

leafy surroundings of London Fields is particularly rewarding.” Dr Bike will also be there to give residents free bicycle checks and minor repairs. Plus there will be textile workshops, led by Barley Massey from

Fabrications, to help people resurrect unruly wardrobes. The Repair and Re-use Day will take place between 11am and 3pm. For more details, visit: http:// hackney.gov. uk/give-take

what’son TOP FIVE There’s so much to do in and around Hackney. From theatre to club nights, art exhibitions to community events. Here’s our pick of what’s on this fortnight:

1. TERA BYTES! Artist Rickay Rax’s exhibition explores our fraught place in a world increasingly dependent on technology See Art & Exhibitions

2. SWINGTRAIN Burn calories dancing to the Charleston, swing, electro swing and blues in this energetic workout programme See Health, Fitness & Sport

3. SCARED TO DANCE This popular club night hosts its annual homage to the music of Joy Division and New Order See Nightlife

4. FIELD DAY Cutting edge artists and village fete vibes collide at Victoria Park See Theatre & Live Entertainment

Charlie Parker’s Yardbird 9-17 June, Hackney Empire, 291 Mare Street, E8 1EJ

5. DALSTON CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL

Lots of fun and free activities for kids to enjoy, including a pasta festival in Dalston Square See Young People

As she struggles to control a whirlwind of media interest, Parker’s ghost, (played by the wonderful Lawrence Brownlee), embarks on one last tour, revising the people and experiences that made – and slowly broke – him.

So it seems somehow appropriate that the European premiere of ‘Charlie Parker’s Yardbird’ should be happening here. A collaboration between the Empire and English National Opera, the show, (described as a ‘jazz-infused bebopera’), starts with Parker’s death from an overdose of heroin and alcohol, in the room of a married baroness.

With music by Daniel Schnyder and a libretto from award-winning African-American poet Bridgette A. Wimberly, Yardbird is almost as bold in its artistic vision as Parker was himself. ‘Charlie Parker’s Yardbird’ runs from 9 to 17 June at Hackney Empire. Tickets start at £15.

HIGHER BEING, BEING HIGHER Until 4 Jun, Mon-Sat, 11am-7pm/Sun, 12noon-6pm Glasgow-born Rugman has lived in East London for the past 10 years. He describes his work as: “A spiritual reflection on time and life. A dream-like search for meaning. A state of mind floating between conscious, sub conscious and unconscious. Man’s obssesion with something higher. The universe, nature and the stars. Inspiration, which gives us life, physically the breath in, and which gives us art, spiritually the ideas and creativity. The spirit, the breath. Energy.” Free. Jealous East Gallery, 53 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3PT. Info: 020 7739 4107; www.jealousgallery.com/ exhibitions/higher-beingbeing-higher

Visitors to the

exhibition can enter the gallery through the gaping mouth to find a king sized fourposter bed with hand-sewn hangings comprising another face with an accompanying whispering voice audible from within.

In his series Tokyo Compression, Wolf centres on the subsurface crush of the Tokyo subway, in which thousands of commuters make their daily journeys between work and home. Photographing individuals

pressed against the windows of the crowded trains during the morning rush hour, Wolf’s images are a disquieting metaphor for the conditions of city-dwellers in today’s dense urban centres. Free.

Win a pair of tickets to see These Trees are Made of Blood SPECTACULAR, arresting and totally unique ‘These Trees are Made of Blood’ blends cabaret and original live music to tell a vital, human story from Argentina’s Dirty War. It is the 1970s. A violent, right wing dictatorship is in power. Thousands of citizens, seized by the authorities, have ‘disappeared’. Inside the country’s most disreputable club, a mother is about to risk everything to find her missing daughter. Step into Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital, for an immersive theatrical experience, which pulls back the curtain on a secretive state, and shines the spotlight on a powerful act of resistance. Based on the book, written by Paul Jenkins, and following a sold-out premiere in 2015, the cabaret coup reignites at Arcola Theatre in Dalston for four weeks.

The simple act of sitting down to eat with young people of this age is so important and is something we see very little of The event sprang from the school’s community service programme, in which all sixth form

students are enlisted to help local causes. Over the course of 14 weeks, the students make

weekly, two-hour visits to each participating project, including care homes and community groups. Tracey Boothe, co-chair of Friends of Woodberry Down, said: “This occasion meant so much to our members. “The simple act of sitting down to eat with young people of this age is so important and is unfortunately something we see very little of. “Our Lady’s is a very hospitable school that takes its mission very seriously indeed. We are very grateful.”

YOUNGSTERS enjoyed a fun-filled three days of sports and leisure activities at Britannia Leisure Centre’s annual games event. A total of 599 primary school pupils from Years 4 and 5 in seven schools were joined by volunteers from UBS, young leaders from the Bridge Academy, and eight local sports clubs. The wide range of activities available included wheelchair sports, netball, football, basketball, softball, street dance, boccia, and touch rugby. The games received a lot of positive feedback from those who participated, as well as those who helped support the event. Mya, from Sebright Primary School, said: “My favourite moment was when I was in street dance. The lady who was teaching us was really funny.” One of the volunteers, Sophie Higgins, described the highlight of her day as: “Watching a child shy away from softball, only to be encouraged to play, hit a home run and see the pride in her face.” To find out more and get involved, visit: www.better.org.uk

Creative nursery pupils win road safety award CHILDREN at Harrington Hill Nursery will be able to act out road safety scenes after winning a road safety role play kit in a competition run by the Council. The competition, which is part of the Council’s commitment to keeping young people safe on Hackney’s roads, asked schools in the borough to depict road safety

messages in artwork. The winning collage, which focused on using a zebra crossing, was praised by judges in the Council’s road safety team for the sewing skills and different materials that were used. Nursery children at Harrington Hill can now enjoy their role play kit, which contains a play mat, uniforms and zebra

crossing beacons to learn more about road safety. Their teacher, Victoria Hebden, said: “We wanted to create something meaningful and interactive that we could use to show the children how to hold a grown-up’s hand, how to use a zebra crossing and how to use traffic lights. They absolutely loved it.” Like many schools in

Hackney, Harrington Hill also has two junior road safety officers, Michael and Angela, who help to promote road safety among all children at the school. They were on hand to receive the prize with the nursery children. To find out more about road safety visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/ road-safety

Trading paces

Audition for panto? Oh, yes it is! IT could be the purr-fect Christmas adventure. Hoxton Hall is looking for children, aged between seven and 11, to star in this year’s Christmas panto ‘Puss in Boots’. Open auditions have been scheduled to take place at the hall on 15 June from 4.15pm. Eight children, all with strong singing and dancing skills, will be selected to join the chorus in what will be the East End landmark’s third panto since re-opening its doors in 2015. The lucky eight will work under the direction of seasoned pantomime writer, director and producer Marc Day. Karena Johnson, the hall’s artistic director, said: “We’re so excited to be working with Marc Day to bring another excellent pantomime to Hoxton Hall. “We are looking forward to finding the young stars of tomorrow to perform with us too.” To find out more visit: www.hoxtonhall.co.uk

Young sports people get support Schoolchildren from Hackney took part in a sports tournament organised by Badu Sports and supported by the Council

ACKNEY schoolchildren picked up some top tips from Team GB stars when they competed in an athletics tournament. In total, 400 pupils from across Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Islington took part in the event at Mile End stadium, where members of Team GB regularly train. This time, children

H

between the ages of six and 11 took centre stage, in a day of competitions organised by Badu Sports and supported by the Council. Eloise, a Year 5 pupil from St Matthais primary school, said: “It was amazing. So many

people, so many schools. I felt nervous because the stadium was really big but it was ok. “We have been training for four weeks, from 8am every morning.” The competitors also met Team GB athletes and discovered their training methods. Junior, a Year 4 pupil at St John

and St James primary school, said: “This was my first time going to a competition outside of school, I cannot wait for the next one!”

ACROSS the borough, 125 sports people are to receive £50,000 from the UK’s largest athlete support programme, the GLL Sport Foundation (GSF). It supports athletes taking part in Olympic, Paralympic, Deaflympic, Special Olympic and Commonwealth sports. Since 2007, GSF has given more than £7.5million to 13,000 athletes. The foundation says 73 per cent of its recipients are under 21 and close to 90 per cent get no other support. Stoke Newington resident, 2016 Olympic boxer Lawrence Okolie was among those to receive funding this year. He said: “My aims are to push on to become a world champion as a professional. The funding from the GLL Sport Foundation will help me on my journey.” For more information about the scheme visit: www.gllsportfoundation.org

Students speak out... and win school challenge THE verbal skills of students from Hackney were put to the test at the regional finals of the Jack Petchey ‘Speak Out Challenge’ earlier this month. It is the world’s biggest youth speaking event. Those who take part receive communication skills training from the charity Speakers Trust. The training is designed to build confidence, and

enable young people from all walks of life to speak with clarity, conviction and impact. The overall winner was Hal Bishop from Haggerston School. His amusing story about a visit to Trump Tower in New York was impeccably delivered and favourably received by the judges and the audience. Elisha Eseigbe, Year 10 student from Our Lady’s

Convent high school, was runner up with a speech entitled ‘Am I Black Enough?’ She said: “The reason I chose my subject to speak about in the competition, is because I think it is important for young people to understand that whatever derogatory thing they say to each other, even if it is a joke, it can still have an effect on people.”

Yasmin Mahmoud, from Clapton Girls Academy, took third place with a speech entitled ‘Have You Heard?’ The Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge is open to every state secondary school in London and Essex. To view the speakers in action, visit: https:// www.youtube.com/ channel/UCyo5N LxWR7FfsI7z9jTPIAw

News in brief Mental health training to support young black men YOUNG black men in the borough are set to receive more mental health support, thanks to a recently launched scheme by charity Rethink Mental Illness and the Council. Recent statistics have shown that, within Hackney, 39 per cent of those diagnosed with a serious mental health condition are black, well above the relative size of the borough’s black community. The programme aims to train mental health professionals in the identification and prevention of issues, as well as how to access support for those they work with. Andrew Hodges, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chief Executive at Rethink Mental Illness, said: “With rates of mental illness in this community disproportionately high, mental health awareness and support couldn’t be more important.” The training will form part of the Council’s Young Black Men programme, which aims to improve the outcomes for young black men and boys across a spectrum of social and educational areas. For more information, visit: www.rethink.org/ mhfahackney; e-mail: [email protected]; or call: 020 7840 3069.

The event at Richmond Road Medical Centre highlighted the range of mental wellbeing options available to residents

Road to mental health S part of Mental Health Awareness Week, Richmond Road Medical Centre opened its doors to the public and hosted an event aimed at encouraging people to think more about their own mental health. Friendly staff from local organisations were on hand to talk to visitors and discuss the range of

A

support options available in the area. Dr Gopal Mehta, one of the event organisers, said: “The number of patients

affected by issues such as low mood, stress and anxiety is growing in the borough and we were keen to explore different ways we could help. “There are so many more treatment options other than just counselling and prescribing medications, such as exercise and cooking classes, befriending services, yoga and mindfulness.”

A visitor to the event said: “I have learnt so much today about new services I could access, which I had no idea were available. We need more events like this.”

Volunteer to help support survivors of strokes WITH research showing that someone in the UK has a stroke every five minutes, the Triangle Stroke Project is looking for volunteers to help run support groups for survivors. The Hackney-based organisation runs projects for local people who

have suffered a stroke, such as self-help groups, exercise classes and talking groups for those whose communication is impaired. Their efforts rely on the help of volunteers. Manager Joana Santos said: “You don’t necessarily need to have previous experience, but you should

have good communication skills, be enthusiastic and committed.” Duties may include helping to devise activities or undertake administration tasks. It can take as little as four hours, once a week, including travel times. Co-ordinator Laura Prikken added: “Our

groups give stroke survivors better health and wellbeing, better independence and make them feel more supported.” Training and support is available for volunteers. For more details, e-mail: [email protected] com; or call Laura Prikken on: 020 7017 2815.

WORK is due to start on traffic calming measures near Harrington Hill Primary School at the end of this month. The Council held a public consultation on the scheme, which included moves to slow down traffic when approaching the school via Mount Pleasant Lane, last November. Of the residents who responded, 91 per cent were in support of the proposals. The works include: • Installation of a new raised flat-top speed hump with an uncontrolled crossing facility on Mount Pleasant Lane by its junction with

Harrington Hill • New paving and kerbbuildouts at the new raised table • Relocating the existing speed hump from outside Harrington Hill Primary School and repositioning it with a new cyclefriendly speed hump closer to Bakers Hill junction • Removing the existing redundant ‘School Keep Clear’ road markings on Harrington Hill to create additional parking spaces for residents • On Mount Pleasant Lane, revised waiting restrictions on the existing single yellow lines by the

western side kerb from Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm • On Mount Pleasant Lane, relocation of the existing ‘School Keep Clear’ road markings closer to the new flat-top hump on the western side kerb to provide better visibility for pedestrians and motorists • Installation of two new vehicle activated ‘Slow Down’ signs on both the approaches to Harrington Hill School on Mount Pleasant Lane.
