Shh... it’s all so quiet Dalston CLR James Library will come alive at a gala week of events to officially celebrate its opening, from 27 February, as people are encouraged to ‘make a noise for libraries’

THE new Dalston CLR James Library is officially opening its doors to the public with a bang – during a gala week of fun-filled activities from

27 February to 3 March. Highlights will include a grand opening with best-selling author Nick Hornby, plus local poet and comedian John

Hegley; a celebration of the life of CLR James led by his widow Selma; and a music, poetry and reminiscence session aimed at older library users.

Rounding off the week’s events will be a family day with steel band workshops. Hackney-born storyteller Sandra Agard will read horrid

tales and play games. And Horrid Henry himself will be signing autographs. For more, turn to pages 6 & 7.

SAFER STREETS AHEAD N day one of operations Hackney’s new Community Safety Wardens recovered a firearm, three knives and a batch of cannabis, while working in conjunction with the police. The new service officially launches on 1 March, but after completing a policeapproved training course, the team hit the streets for the first time this month. The wardens will act as the primary point of contact for residents on matters of

O

community safety – which is a key Council priority. The 12 new recruits will have the power to take names and addresses from anyone causing an offence; issue fixed penalty notices for a number of offences including littering, graffiti and dog fouling; and tackle issues around anti-social behaviour. The team will liaise with the police and community groups to help ensure they are deployed in areas where they can be of most use. The wardens have also undergone training in

partnership with the Council’s sustainable transport team and are on hand to provide cyclists with safety information. David Shipp, joint lead Community Safety Warden, said: “The wardens’ extensive training programme means they can support the work of the Drug and Alcohol Action Team, the Sharps Disposal Unit and the Anti-social Behaviour Service. “We will also seek to educate residents in the key services we provide and work in partnership to keep our

streets and parks clean and safe.” Cllr Sophie Linden, Cabinet Member for Crime, Sustainability and Customer Services, added: “The new service has already proved that a joinedup approach with the police achieves results. “This partnership working is key to the success of the service as well as making Hackney a safer place to live and work.” For more information, call: 020 8356 6867 between 9am-5pm; or visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/ safercommunities

Hackney Homes and Lakehouse apprentices get together to celebrate National Apprentice Week by painting Rose Lipman Community Hall

Pick up a paintbrush A

PPRENTICES and senior managers worked together to give Rose Lipman Community Hall a makeover as part of National Apprentice Week. The three day project included painting the main hall, staircase, landing, and kitchen, as well as replacing kitchen worktops – bringing a new lease of life to the De Beauvoir Road site. Managers from Hackney Homes picked up their paintbrushes and went ‘back to the floor’ to support the electrical and

carpentry apprentices from Lakehouse and Hackney Homes. Since the academic year began last September, Hackney Homes has taken on three young people from the borough, providing them with training in carpentry, plumbing, painting, plastering and electrics.

In addition to learning a trade alongside qualified professionals, apprentices are also supported to gain a NVQ Level 3 qualification. Those involved in the project were presented with a certificate by the Chair of Hackney Homes Board, Rupert Tyson MBE, to thank them for all their hard work on the

project and to acknowledge their dedication to improving the local area. Apprentice electrician, Elliott Giannotti, said: “It’s a great opportunity for us to be involved with developing the community hall to give something back to residents.” Rupert added: “It’s wonderful to see young people doing such positive work in the community, whilst gaining skills that can be used for the future.”

OLYMPIC BMX racer and track cyclist, Shanaze Reade, 24, visited Haggerston Park’s BMX track on 8 February. Shanaze, who has won the

elite women World Champion BMX crown three times – and will be competing at London 2012, was impressed with the park’s facilities. She said: “It’s great to see that Hackney

has a world-class BMX track in Haggerston Park. I’ve been in love with BMX-ing since a young age and I’d encourage young people to try it out – maybe even here in

Haggerston Park.” Last year, the Council invested £30,000 to refurbish this facility, part of its continued investment in its parks and green spaces.

residents and visitors. Ami Clarke, artist and founder of Banner Repeater, said: “I wanted to find a way to engage a non-specific audience with art in an interesting, nonthreatening environment. Artists who exhibit or write for Banner Repeater are interested by its concept and unusual setting and this often influences the work they produce.” Although more and more people are becoming familiar with Banner Repeater, every day new people visit the space – not expecting

to stumble across it on a railway platform. Cllr Guy Nicholson, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, said: “Banner Repeater is an extraordinary experience. I would like to know where else you would find a station manager and a

curator working together, creating an experience that captures your attention, fires your imagination and introduces new audiences to art and expression through contemporary literature.” For more info, visit: www.artinemptyspaces. org.uk; or: www. bannerrepeater.org

Homegrown talent ROUD Hackney resident Adam Deacon has called his victory at this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTAs) ‘a win for the underdog’. Triumphing over lead actors from blockbuster superhero ‘Thor’ to Oxbridge thespians, Adam was named the Rising Star of this year’s BAFTAs after a public vote. Clearly stunned during his acceptance speech, Adam said: “This is mad. I can’t believe I’m in the same place as people like Brad Pitt, this is so surreal.”

Adding: “It’s not just a win for me, it’s a win for the underdog, and it’s a win for any young person out there, that’s got a dream to better themselves.” The actor shot to fame in 2006 gritty drama ‘Kidulthood’, continuing the character in 2008 sequel ‘Adulthood’. Last year he wrote and directed comedy ‘Anuvahood’, sending up his previous films. Still living on an estate in the borough, Adam described the ‘bubble’ some casting directors live, by overlooking actors from the inner city.

Adam wasn’t the only local talent scoring big on 12 February. ‘Pitch Black Heist’, starring long-time resident Michael Fassbender – and filmed in Mare Street’s Dolphin pub – picked up best short film. Director and former resident John Maclean first found fame as a musician and DJ in The Beta Band and The Aliens. He said: “I’d like to thank the entire cast and crew and Michael Fassbender for his only three days off ever and choosing them to do a short film.” Michael, currently on screen in ‘A Dangerous

Method’ with Keira Knightley, was also nominated for best actor in sex-addiction drama ‘Shame’. Clapton-born Asif Kapadia, 39, won best documentary and best editing for his film ‘Senna’, which charts the rise and untimely death of Brazilian F1 driver, Ayrton Senna. Asif revealed that he wasn’t a fan of motor racing himself, hence his insistence on making a film that could reach more than just lovers of F1. “We realised it would have to be about a person, and Senna had an otherworldly quality and this incredible 6 charisma.”

Sense and sustainability ASHION designer Lu Flux sits in her small but perfectly formed London Fields studio working furiously on her Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection. With less than two weeks until the line must be finished – in time for Paris Fashion Week on 3 March – the atmosphere in the studio is surprisingly relaxed. Girls in thickknitted jumpers sit among clothes patterns, lengths of materials and rails of ‘top secret’ clothes, chatting, sewing and drinking large mugs of tea. “I get frustrated by people who take fashion away from craft and creativity and enter it into a competitive sphere,” Lu says passionately. Adding: “I think it’s a real shame the way fashion has no longer become a voice of one’s expression. The high street has smothered independence – people don’t treasure clothes as much as they used to because they’re so throwaway.” Lu trained at Edinburgh College of Art before working as a fashion assistant to German designer Bernhard Willhelm in Paris. In February 2009, she debuted at London Fashion Week as part of Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s

I think Hackney is thriving because it is filled with creative people ‘Ones To Watch’ show. And one year on was presented with an innovation award from Estethica and the Ethical Fashion Forum, which acknowledges inventive design in the world of sustainable fashion. “There is so much waste in the clothing industry. The high street is churning out all these clothes – it’s so unnecessary. You should wear things you feel happy and comfortable in and not just because everyone else is wearing it,” she says. Lu salvages old materials for her clothing lines – from old silk scarves and end-of-roll cashmere to floral bedsheets and heavy curtains – from a recycling centre in East London. She tries to ensure that all aspects of her business are both sustainable and British – right up to the production of her clothes in a factory here in Hackney. “I love East London – there’s a real hub of designers here. I think Hackney is thriving because it is filled with creative people,” she says. Adding: “I find the whole experience of trying to find the right

fabrics for my clothes really fun. I love uncovering all these patterns I didn’t know existed then using them in my work so they get a brand new life. My style is playful, colourful, textured and detailed – all the vintage materials have this incredible washed feel to them. This means most of the clothes I make are a one off because the material I come across is limited. That’s what makes my brand personal.” Lu’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection, ‘A-Lu-Ha’ debuted at London Fashion Week in September. The Polynesian-inspired range is complete with candy colours, laser cut crepe ‘grass skirts’, printed Tiki mask T-shirts and apron dresses. About the collection Lu says: “In the winter everyone awaits the arrival of summer, dreaming of blue skies and sunny days. But when it comes the reality is it rains. My collection is a take on the ‘Hawaii’ we desire, which clashes with the reality of a dull British summer.” For more on Lu Flux’s line, visit: www.luflux.com

THE GREEN GENIE

All your green questions answered Q: Many gardening books and websites often say not to use dairy products, cooked food, meat, or fish in composting. In the case of meat, fish, and dairy I think it’s to avoid attracting pests and rodents, but what’s the reasoning behind avoiding cooked food in composting? A: You’re right that dairy, meat and fish can attract pests and rodents. With cooked food, the problem is that it loses moisture in the process of cooking and natural bacteria are killed off. This means cooked food decomposes more slowly, so is not ideal for composting. Advanced composters can try mixing live or raw foods with cooked food to replace lost moisture and bacteria, but this is very tricky and can spoil your compost. For the best results avoid adding cooked foods to your compost.

Spruce up a green space ESIDENTS are being invited to grow their own food in time for the Games this summer, and make Hackney a greener place to live. The borough already has 131 community food growing spaces, and the Capital Growth scheme aims to create 2,012 in London by the end of the year. In order to achieve this, it is launching its

R

biggest ever food-growing competition, called ‘Grow for Gold’ to commemorate the Olympic and Paralympic year. It runs for six months and takes projects from sowing the first seed to harvesting. Participants will get free support including training, vouchers, workshops and cash incentives. The competition will be judged in September and prizes awarded to the best

Residents tend their community food growing spaces across the borough

gardens in five different categories including community engagement; enterprise; education; supporting wildlife and overall winner for most inspiring garden. Capital Growth will also be offering funding support from the end of February, and applications are open to any group interested in starting a food growing project. Sarah Williams, of

Capital Growth, said: “With almost 1,500 Capital Growth spaces and over 40,000 Londoners tending them, we’re well on course to meet our target for 2,012 new growing spaces by the end of the year.”

Shop owner fined more than £1,000 A LOCAL businessman was fined more than £1,000 for failing to produce documents to show he had made proper arrangements to dispose of business waste. Lloyd Robinson, who runs Back To Eden grocers on Lower Clapton Road, was prosecuted by the Council after failing to produce waste transfer

www.hackney.gov.uk

documentation dating back to May 2010. The Council wrote to Robinson 12 times and visited the shop eight times, handing out two fixed penalty notices. But he was unable to produce documents to prove he had been using a licensed waste carrier. Thames Magistrates Court handed out a fine of

£850, plus £160 costs and a £15 victim surcharge on 3 February. The maximum penalty is £5,000. Cllr Feryal Demirci, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “Every business must ensure that it has proper waste disposal arrangements in place. Using an unlicensed waste carrier can result

in waste being fly-tipped.” Robinson had entered a not guilty plea. Magistrates noted that he had plenty of opportunity to respond to the Council or pay his fixed penalty notices.

Recycle more – and save money ESIDENTS helped the borough save £500,000 last year, just by recycling. This year the Council is encouraging residents to go even further – and double the amount of waste currently recycled – to

R

50 per cent by 2020. The campaign is backed by Recycle for London’s ‘Nice Save’ initiative, which aims to reduce waste across the capital. Last year, this resulted in a total saving of £30million. Around 60 per cent of

rubbish in the average bin is recyclable, so if everyone in the borough recycled more, it would free up money for the Council to spend on other, vital services. This is because it currently costs 25 per cent more to dispose of waste in a black bin than it does to recycle it. Costs are set to increase even further with landfill sites filling up and landfill taxes rising year-on-year. Cllr Feryal Demirci, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “Thank you to the many residents who continue to recycle and help make Hackney a cleaner, greener borough. “By saving half a million pounds last year I hope

residents will see that by doing their bit they can tackle climate change and also bring down the costs of getting rid of waste. “The Nice Save campaign is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the services available locally, and encourage others to make recycling part of their every day routine.” To find out more about the campaign, visit: www. recycleforlondon.com

News in brief Real nappy – really happy MORE than 350 parents have attended Nappucino events in Hackney which encourage the use of real nappies. Attendees are given vouchers worth £54 which can be redeemed for real cotton nappies. So far this has helped residents save a total of £324,000 and reduced the amount of disposable nappies sent to landfill by more than 473 tonnes – the equivalent in weight of 40 London buses. Real nappies are an environmentally friendly alternative to disposable nappies – a major contributor to landfill sites. Parents attending the Nappucino events, which are hosted jointly by the Council and Hackney Real Nappy Network, can get advice and support from other real nappy users. The next Nappucino event takes place at Mapledene and Queensbridge Children’s Centre, E8, on 24 February, from 10am-12pm. To book a place, essential for receiving the vouchers, contact Leonor Barricarte Bulnes on: 020 8356 7930 or e-mail: leonor. [email protected] hackney.gov.uk

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. SIMON ANNAND: THE HALF Intimate portraits of well-known actors just minutes before the curtain call See Art & Exhibitions

2. CREATIVE WRITING Five-week course to improve your writing voice See Courses

3. THE ROCK STEADY MASTER CLASS High-energy dance class with Eddie Calle See Health, Fitness & Sport

4. LGBT MONTH CELEBRATION Hackney Museum’s performance night for LGBT month See Noticeboard

PREVIEW

5. THE BIG WRITE

The Horne Section

Top children’s writers and illustrators feature at Discover’s word festival See Young People

PERHAPS it’s not since John Thompson’s smooth-talking The Fast Show sketches that comedy-jazz has been perfomed on such a scale. Alex Horne unleashes the experimental genre along with a few comedy heavy hitters in The Horne Section’s biggest London show to date. Also performing at Hackney Empire will be Tim Vine, former world record

holder of the most amount of jokes told in an hour (a blistering 499); The Pajama brothers, so silly they require both ‘foolish’ and ‘tomfoolery’ in their description; beatbox champion Beardyman; and a man with a peculiar talent with balloons. A guest star is also set to feature. Here’s a hint, he’s a foul-mouthed, deadpan stand-up comedian who offended Anne Widdecombe on national TV. That narrows it down.

PREVIEW Naseeb: Trafficked Next Level Projects, 58 Hanbury St, E1, 29 Feb-25 Mar ASHA (pictured above) was sex trafficked from her home in central India. But even after being rescued she was forced back into prostitution, needing to somehow provide for her mother and younger brother. Her story forms part of ABP Autograph’s new exhibition ‘Naseeb: Trafficked’ – a document of young Indian and Bangladeshi women kidnapped, tricked or sold into forced prostitution, who later escaped and are now living in protected accommodation. Naseeb means ‘fate’ or ‘luck’ in Hindi. The protective homes provide a backdrop to photographer Sonal Kantaria’s Polaroid portraits, video and a map pointing out well-known trafficking routes in South Asia. In doing so, the work focuses on the gender, economic and class

disenfranchisements resulting in South Asian women being forced into the flesh trade. Sonal explains: “I heard many stories of poverty, bad families, deception by friends and families, kidnappings and horrific experiences on trafficking routes. Sometimes the girls had left their homes of their own will, other times they were running away from violent husbands or simply in search of a better life. The stories differed but one commonality existed: they had all been deceived.” Asha eventually obtained a 12th grade pass at college and was set to start a job in computing. Her dream is to go back to her village proud of making a better life for herself. Info: 020 7729 9200; www.autographabp.co.uk

Bridge Academy pupils helped launch the Premier League Reading Stars programme with Theo Walcott and the Duchess of Cornwall

Eats, shoots and reads NGLAND and Arsenal forward, Theo Walcott, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were joined by Hackney students to launch a national reading campaign to boost literacy. The Bridge Academy pupils helped promote the Premier League Reading Stars online challenge, which sees 20 players from top flight English football clubs select their favourite children’s and adults’ books,

E

share their love of reading, and set some questions about the stories. The E2 students took part in a book quiz and posed for photos with Theo and the Duchess, at Arsenal’s home ground, the Emirates stadium, on 26 January. Bridge Academy

librarian, Aidan Higgins, said the children enjoyed taking part and Theo made ‘some really encouraging comments’. Young people who complete the reading challenges can win prizes, while those who do all 100 get the chance to win signed memorabilia. The National

Literacy Trust programme targets primary and secondary pupils who are not reaching the expected levels in literacy. Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb, who attended the event, said: “The difference in reading ability between those who read for just half an hour a day is equivalent to a whole year’s schooling at age 15.” For more info, visit: www.premierleague readingstars.org.uk

FOUR local young people have won music scholarships to help support the capital’s up-and-coming talent. Eight-year-old trombonist Isaac Timberlake joined Luis Lodder, seven, Daniel Aidoo and Jerrell Lewin at City Hall to pick up a

Mayor’s Fund for Young Musicians (MFYM) prize. The awards will see them receive weekly tuition, as well as mentoring and membership of ensembles. They will even be able to participate in special events with MFYM patrons, including trumpet virtuoso Alison Balsom and beat-boxer Shlomo. The scholarships were

established to help seven to 11-year-olds who showed outstanding potential and commitment to learning an instrument, but whose families might struggle to pay for music lessons. Jess Judge, 14, from Clapton Girls’ Academy, was also awarded one of only three places on the London Symphony Orchestra Discovery Clive Gillinson Bursary Scheme.

A GIFTED eleven-year-old earned himself an A* GCSE in Maths after sitting the exam five years early. Nathan Creighton, from Rushmore Primary School, E5, achieved top marks with little more than a maths textbook and support from his parents. His mother, Sarah, commented that Nathan ‘always had a knack for maths’. She said: “By the time he started school at four he knew all his times tables. He loved playing around with number sequences. From eight, he stared developing his own maths theorems and proofs.” He sat the test at a private exam centre with the backing of The Learning Trust and his school. Rushmore primary’s headteacher, Ian Mullaney, described the achievement as ‘fantastic’. Sarah said that although Nathan was too young to have formed any future career plans, he might explore the option of taking a Maths A-level early when he moves to Nathan Creighton, 11, celebrates secondary school in getting an A* in Maths GCSE September.

‘Outstanding’ ranking for City Academy by Ofsted inspection ONE of the borough’s newest schools has been rated ‘outstanding’ in its latest Ofsted inspection. City Academy was given the highest accolade possible by the education watchdog for the second year in a row. The report praised pupils’ behaviour and said they enjoyed learning and could develop in a ‘safe, inspiring and enriching atmosphere’. It added: “Staff, students and their parents and carers have all made a significant contribution to the academy’s vision and success.” Principal Mark Emmerson said the report marked an important milestone towards achieving top results for all its students. The Homerton school opened in 2009 and replaced Homerton Boys’ Technology College. It is sponsored by accountancy firm KPMG and City of London.

News in brief Don’t believe the hype... By Ondre Roach, 17; Photo Stream Conyer, 14

All we hear is Radio Ga Ga IFTEEN lucky students paid a visit to Kiss FM to practice their radio journalism skills as part of an innovative training project. The young people got to see how a radio station works, and use the interviewing, editing and presenting skills they had gained during the 11 week course. Students heard first hand experiences of working in the industry and got advice on how to break into radio from Magic FM news reporter, Verity Geere, and presenter Gary Vincent. They also met Kiss FM presenters Clara Ambro and Justin Wilkes, plus each group got to make sample

I went to Kiss FM radio station and spoke to the DJ, editors and journalists Kiss promos with station producers. Sainthave Ramachandran, 18, said: “I spoke to the DJ, editors and journalists. We also recorded our own speeches to see how it works. I had great fun and also met Channing Tatum!” The radio journalism course, which finishes in March, is National Open College Network (NOCN) accredited. It gives students the chance to learn the skills needed to succeed in the highly competitive media industry.

During the course, each student makes their own podcast, interviewing people in the community and industry. The end product will be showcased in an exhibition at the Councilrun Hackney Museum. Those on the course range from A-level and BTEC students in Media and Design, to young people from Off Centre – a counselling, therapy and advocacy service. The course is run at Hackney Community College by Ignite Creative, and funded

by Hackney Museum through its Mapping the Change project, which seeks to record the impact of the Olympic and Paralympic Games on Hackney and its residents. Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Culture, said: “Mapping the Change has enabled the Council to give young people opportunities to get involved with projects where they learn new skills that could help them make decisions about their careers.”

£1.3m funding for youth groups

Want to join the Scouts?

JOB prospects for young people living in Hackney could be boosted by a £1.3million fund run by the Safer London Foundation. Youngsters will have the opportunity to join uniformed groups like the Guides, Scouts and Cadets, allowing them to develop

life skills, responsibility and discipline. Nearly 40 new uniformed groups will be opened over three years, two-thirds of which will be in innercity London boroughs, including Hackney. By the end of 2014 this will increase to 1,000.

Rena Sodhi, Chief Executive of Safer London Foundation, said: “It’s all about supporting young people and giving them the opportunity to approach their lives differently.” For more info, visit: www.saferlondon foundation.org

AKALA, one of London’s most talented music artists, appeared at Hackney Empire on 3 February with a message for the borough’s young people: don’t believe the hype. The conscientious rapper struck the audience with his powerful lyrics as he performed one of his songs to a full house of 13 to 19-year-olds at Alter Ego – the opening event of the Discover Young Hackney arts festival. He said: “As you can see from the beautiful event that’s going on today, the overwhelming majority of people in an area like this – young people – want to do something positive with their life.” Asked what message he had for young people in Hackney, he said: “Show people the brilliant work we know that is going on with young people in neighbourhoods like this. I’m not saying there aren’t choices along the way, it’s just how we’re encouraged to think about those choices. Try not Rapper Akala to believe the hype.”

Young artist exhibits at Boxpark By Shannique Smith, 18

A NINETEEN-year-old painter and filmmaker is debuting his artwork at Boxpark, Shoreditch. Resident Tom Hadrill is exhibiting as part of the Art Against Knives (AAK) project. He says: “I think AAK is a brilliant opportunity for young people like myself to gain access to new possibilities and get involved in creative endeavours. I hope that by doing this exhibition I will gain some recognition and feedback for my work, and hopefully raise money to fund my film projects.” Tom works mainly in oil paint and takes much of his imagery directly from his own photography. The exhibition runs until 23 February. For more on Tom’s films, visit: www.youtube.com/ Self-portrait of Tom, 19 user/Tvhadrill/feed

health News in brief Bowel cancer awareness drive

Young carers from the borough and famous designers join forces for a giant egg hunt

Eggstraordinary hunt Y

OUNG carers from Hackney have joined forces with world-famous designers to create giant fibreglass eggs for the world’s largest ever Easter egg hunt. The carers, aged nine to 11, helped design one of 200 unique eggs to help raise money for charities Action for Children and

Elephant Family. Shakira, nine, one of the young Hackney carers involved, said: “I enjoyed painting the eggs – I was very happy to meet other people and the artists.” Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger are among the renowned designers that have created the 2.5foot giant eggs. They are being scattered across the

capital, with ‘hunters’ having 40 days to find as many as they can, starting from 21 February. Not only will the event be entered into the Guinness World Records for the most participants in an Easter egg hunt, but also for the world’s most expensive chocolate egg – created by chocolatier William Curley – which is

also hidden in the capital. Participants and other bidders can then shell out to buy the eggs when they are put up for auction to raise funds for the two charities.

Bridging the gap with older people

Building Exploratory members

A CHARITY has donated nearly £105,000 to improve health and social interaction among older people in Hackney and Tower Hamlets. City Bridge Trust awarded the grant to Hackney organisation the Building Exploratory, which is based in Orsman Road, N1, and exists to connect residents with the built environment.

Chief Executive, Dr Nicole Crockett, said: “This funding will make a huge difference to our work with older people. It will enable us to pilot a new model of working and reach new groups of older people, including those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.” The Building Exploratory currently runs an older resident

programme that includes talks, visits to buildings and guided tours of the borough. The trust uses surpluses from the City bridges to fund good causes. Last year it made £16.8million in donations to London charities. For more info, call: 020 7729 2011, or visit: www.building exploratory.org.uk

RESIDENTS are being urged to look out for symptoms of bowel cancer, the second biggest cancer killer in the UK. Awareness of the signs of bowel cancer is low in East London, according to NHS East London and the City, which runs Hackney’s health services. The campaign encourages people who have blood in their stools, or loose stools, for more than three weeks to see their doctor. It is hoped the publicity drive will make it easier for people to discuss potential problems with their GP. Ian Basnett, director of public health for NHS East London and the City, said: “We need to get over the embarrassment and talk about it – remember your GP talks about these things regularly. Talking to your GP can save your life.” Nearly 200 people in East London are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year, the majority of cases are aged over 55. More than 90 per cent of those diagnosed with bowel cancer at an early stage survive for at least five years. For more info, visit: www.nhs.uk/ Loose stools? Visit your GP bowelcancer

Right at the heart of the matter LIFE-SAVING equipment to treat people suffering a cardiac arrest has been installed in Hackney’s leisure centres. Defibrillators, which deliver an electric shock to restart the heart, have been introduced in all the GLL-managed centres in the borough to provide on-site emergency care. Gym instructors, life guards and other GLL employees can now use the equipment after being trained by London Ambulance Service staff. Giving someone shock treatment within the first minutes of collapse gives them the best chance of survival. For every minute a person’s heart stops, the chances of surviving are reduced by 14 per cent. GLL director of operations, Andy McCabe, said: “Every year we have thousands of visitors to the leisure centres, and there is of course a risk that one or more of these may suffer a heart attack or cardiac arrest. The defibrillators, and the London Ambulance Service’s training, have given our staff the confidence to carry out first aid in even the most extreme of situations.”

hackneyhistory

The high life T MATTHIAS parish church in Wordsworth Road, N16, was awarded a Grade 1 listing in 1953, despite being only 100 years old. Built between 1849 and 1853, St Matthias was an offshoot of the old St Mary’s church – founded largely by the efforts of Dr Robert Brett of Newington Green and Rev Thomas Alder Pope, the assistant curate of St Mary’s and son-in-law of its Rector. Both men supported the Oxford Movement which advocated the solemn ritual practices of High Church Anglicanism. Stoke Newington was well known for its nonconformist Dissenting chapels, the popularity of which Brett and Pope partly blamed on the fact that the only Anglican church in the area – St Mary’s – had little room for new worshippers at a time when the local population

S

was fast expanding. The old parish of St Mary had been formed when Stoke Newington was a small village, but now it was becoming a London suburb, and Brett and Pope wanted an Anglican church for residents which reflected their own High Church beliefs. The parish of St Matthias was thus created in 1849, to serve south-eastern Stoke Newington and parts of South Hornsey. The site chosen for the church lay amongst cornfields, meadows and watercress beds along a tree-lined carttrack known as Cut Throat Lane, although when the area was redeveloped for housing, it was renamed in honour of the poet William Wordsworth. The church and accompanying parish school were designed by William Butterfield, the famous Gothic Revival architect who, although born into a non-conformist

family, was also a High Church follower. The foundation stone of St Matthias church was laid by Lord Nelson in 1851, and the finished building consecrated in June 1853. Brett paid for the building of the Sanctuary at a cost of £500, and Pope was installed as perpetual curate, establishing a High Church tradition of worship. But within the year, Pope left St Matthias having converted to Roman Catholicism. The High Church tradition was

retained despite it being highly controversial at the time however, and St Matthias remains a High Anglican church today. There was always a strong musical tradition at the church, and the original organ is still in place, although it has been enlarged and altered over the years. The church’s first musical director, Dr W Henry Monk, composed the tunes to many hymns still well known today, including ‘Eventide’ which accompanies ‘Abide With

Me’. His tune for ‘Sweet Saviour bless us ere we go’ is called ‘St Matthias’. Work on the new St Mary’s church began in 1855 and the building was consecrated in 1858, but there was still a wish to cater for the religious needs of the community. In 1873, two more new parishes were created from those of St Mary and St Matthias: All Saints, based in Aden Grove, and St Faith, in Londesborough Road, were both High Church. Both St Matthias and St Faith churches were bombed during the Blitz of the Second World War, the latter so badly that it eventually had to be

demolished in 1949. St Matthias was awarded its Grade I listing in September 1953, despite the extensive damage it had suffered and the changes made through necessary repair and restoration. A new parish was formed in 1951, of St Faith with St Matthias, and in 1956 All Saint’s church was also demolished and the parish absorbed to create St Faith with St Matthias and All Saints, since shortened to Stoke Newington, St Matthias. The vicarage, which was built after the original was destroyed during the Blitz, has been used in the BBC comedy series ‘Rev’.

Hackney’s wards in alphabetical order

The Mayor and Councillors Councillors are elected by Hackney residents and serve for four years. The last borough elections were in May 2010. Councillors have a range of responsibilities, including helping to oversee the Council and its services. They hold advice surgeries where residents can meet their local representative and ask them to take up

issues that may be of concern. Generally they can help with Council related matters, but if the issue is the 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 – illustrated in the map opposite.

Recipes straight from the ovens at Waterhouse www.waterhouserestaurant.co.uk

THIS is the latest in a series of recipes courtesy of Waterhouse – an eco-friendly restaurant alongside the Regent’s Canal in Shoreditch. Trainee chef Mizana Gebretensae chose this seasonal starter to share with Hackney Today readers. She said: “The combination of flavours and textures in this dish really work.

THERE is still time for residents to have their say on a draft housing strategy for London. The consultation runs until 6 March. The draft strategy from the Greater London Authority (GLA) sets out details on housing policies which the Mayor of London hopes will ‘empower people and transform places’. Since the first statutory London Housing Strategy was published in February 2010, there have been major developments including changes to the way Government funding is allocated. A revised housing strategy is being produced in response to this. To take part, visit: www.london.gov.uk/ consultation/revisedlondon-housing-strategy;

e-mail: [email protected] gov.uk; write to: Draft London Housing Strategy, 3rd Floor Post Point 20, FREEPOST LON15799, City Hall, Queen’s Walk, SE1 2BR.

The development of equality objectives THE Council would like to hear from residents, service users and other stakeholders on the development of its equality objectives. Local authorities are required by law to produce equality objectives, and set out how they will measure these improvements. There is still time to give feedback on the draft equalities objectives that reflect the needs of people who live and work in Hackney. They are: 1. Identify, prioritise and deliver actions which

aim to narrow the gap in outcomes between certain disadvantaged groups and the wider community 2. Improve service design, delivery and access by improving the way the Council engages with communities, uses customers’ feedback and develops understanding of communities 3. Foster good relations by promoting awareness and understanding between communities. The consultation runs until 21 February. To take part, complete the online questionnaire at: www.hackney.gov.uk/ equalities-objectives; write to: Freepost LON 18819, Consultation Team, London Borough of Hackney, Mare Street, E8 IEA; e-mail: [email protected] hackney.gov.uk; or call: 020 8356 5194.
