The Mayor continued: “Over the last few years we have shown it is possible to improve the quality of life for local people by improving

services such as recycling, parks, libraries and leisure centres, without raising Council Tax. “This financial discipline will mean we are in a stronger position than many other councils to deal with the tighter times ahead for national public spending.” The Council will vote on the Mayor’s budget proposals in March next year. The proposed freeze affects the Council’s portion of the Council Tax bill, the remainder of which is set by the Mayor of London.

Message from the Mayor

A record tax freeze without service cuts NOW more than ever, it is the responsibility of the Council to get the best value for money it can from every penny it spends. That is why, as I reported in the last edition of Hackney Today, over the past five years we have saved over £40million to plough back into frontline services through running the Council more efficiently – more than any other borough in London.

The Council has saved over £40million over five years

At a meeting on 26 October, the Cabinet agreed to support my proposals to freeze our share of the Council Tax again; making Hackney the only council in the country to be keeping Council Tax frozen for five years running. These are difficult economic times for people everywhere, and it is right that the Council does what it can to help Hackney residents through the global recession.

T

In addition to keeping Council Tax at 2005 levels, my budget proposals include extra investment in social care for vulnerable adults and young people with learning disabilities; money to support the running costs of the new and expanded libraries opening in Dalston and Clapton; our new youth centres; and funding for the expanded recycling service. Of course, the Council will continue to maintain its core services, such as cleaning the streets, collecting waste, running parks, libraries and leisure centres and keeping the borough safe. I am making these proposals earlier than in previous years as we want to maximise the opportunity to consult with residents about the Council’s budget and how Hackney’s money is spent. There will be more information about how you can participate in this consultation in a future edition of Hackney Today, and on the Council's website: www.hackney.gov.uk

Residents and businesses will need to support the Post Office by using it regularly



“We’re now looking for a partner to run the Post Office. If this is successful, residents and businesses will need to support the Post Office by using it regularly to ensure the Council can keep it open for them in the long-term.” If a partner is found to run the Post Office, it will be initially funded for up to five years, with a review after two years, to assess levels of use and financial viability. It is hoped the Post Office could reopen in early summer 2010.

NEWS IN BRIEF Shop with trusted traders A NEW ‘Buy with Confidence’ scheme aims to give trusted traders a seal of approval to advise customers that they are buying from a reliable firm. The Council is encouraging traders to sign up to the scheme, which will place a quality mark on the business’s website and inform potential customers that they are a Hackney approved company. The scheme was launched in response to demands from consumers for lists of high-quality local traders. In 2008, the National Consumer Council – the information and advice service for consumers, now called Consumer Direct – received an overwhelming 1,800 complaints from Hackney residents regarding problems with home improvements and rogue traders. The second highest rated problem was used cars, receiving 45 complaints. Businesses and consumers wanting more information on the Buy with Confidence scheme should call: 0207 8356 4929; or visit www.hackney.gov.uk/buywithconfidence

Robbers caught by CCTV TWO violent robbers who had been separately targeting lone women in the borough have been caught, thanks to the work of Hackney retailers. Paul Hydes, 35, and Selmani Muboyayi, 29, were caught on CCTV, but the video did not get a clear shot of their faces. Hackney shopkeepers were asked to support the investigation by allowing Police to access their private camera footage, giving the officers the opportunity to identify and catch the perpetrators and press charges. Hydes and Muboyayi both received Paul Hydes (top) indeterminate public protection and Selmani sentences last month. Muboyayi Cllr Alan Laing, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “All those who have been robbed by these violent men have shown enormous bravery in speaking out. Thanks to them as well as to the work of the CCTV and Police teams working together, these criminals have been caught and have been given sentences that reflect the severity of their crimes.”

Youth career opportunities EVER thought about a career in the public sector? Hackney young people aged 16-24 can get work experience, training and a salary of more than £15k by becoming a Council apprentice in the business administration department. Trainees are also given support in-house as well as a relevant study programme with a college or training organisation. Amrita Kaur, a current apprentice on the scheme, said: “Along with working, I am also able to gain a professionally recognised qualification. With these two qualities, I will be recognised by employers.” The closing date for completed applications to the scheme is 9 November 2009.

It takes a lot of commitment and dedication to achieve in any sport and congratulations are also due to the parents, coaches, trainers, schools and supporters throughout Hackney who enable these individuals to succeed.” During the event, grants were given out to recipients of Hackney's Youth Sports Fund, which provides financial support to young

athletes and organisations towards the cost of facilities, equipment and training. The Council set up the fund after wresting £300,000 from Nike for using the borough’s logo on a range of sportswear, without permission.

Pathways to health A dance workshop at the Round Chapel and (inset) a visitor contributes to the Tree of Life

SOME of the pathways towards mental health wellbeing were showcased at an all-day event aiming to help break stereotypes surrounding mental illness. As part of Mental Health Week from 10-16 October, the Round Chapel on Powerscroft Road

opened up to provide information, while showing the range of organisations that can help people who have mental health difficulties in Hackney. Dance and drama workshops, a photographic exhibition and complementary therapy sessions were on offer. Visitors

were also able to contribute to the ‘Tree of Life’ – an art piece for individuals to write about what they regarded as critical to living a fulfilling life. The event was a collaboration between local NHS mental health services, Hackney Community Services and local

voluntary sector organisations. According to the Mental Health Foundation, one-in-four UK adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year. For more information visit www.eastlondon.nhs.uk and www.mentalhealth.org.uk

A new start “

The start of demolition at Haggerston West and Kingsland is a milestone

By James Willsher

EMOLITION work has begun on two Hackney housing estates undergoing a £150 million regeneration programme. The Haggerston West & Kingsland estates are set to be knocked down and rebuilt, providing 761 new flats and houses as well as a community centre, nursery, shops, and play facilities. Residents, Council officers, local ward councillor Jonathan McShane and Cllr Karen Alcock, Deputy Mayor of Hackney, all gathered on 13 October at Bryant Court, Kingsland Estate.

Cllr Alcock and L&Q chief executive, David Montague at Bryant Court

Debra Herring, Chair of the resident-led Estate Development Management Committee, said: “We have been waiting for this for a long time and for the residents it’s a step in the right direction, showing that things are happening.” The Haggerston West and Kingsland estates were formally transferred to

London and Quadrant Housing Trust (L&Q) last year from Hackney Homes, after a vote from tenants and residents in 2007. L&Q are leading the redevelopment of the estates, which will take place in two phases during the next few years. Cllr Alcock said: “The Council has pledged its commitment to providing



21st century housing for residents, and the start of demolition at Haggerston West and Kingsland is a milestone. It’s not just about value for money and masterplanning, but about new homes, schools, improved quality of life, and local people taking pride in their new community. “Redeveloping the Haggerston West and Kingsland Estates is a mammoth undertaking, but by listening to what residents want and with support from our local authority partners, the area has a bright and exciting future.”

NEWS IN BRIEF Sparkle safely AS fireworks light up the skies in Hackney, the Council and the police are running a joint operation to keep festivities in the borough safe for all. Together they are urging residents to report illegal and anti-social behaviour that can spoil the fun for people at this time of year. Annually, around Bonfire Night, there is a recorded increase in anti-social behaviour, with more incidents of dangerous fireworks usage, criminal damage and thefts. People in the borough are being asked to stay alert for offences while they enjoy celebrations. The Police and the Council’s Trading Standards Unit will be conducting mystery shopper operations to crack down on illegal sales, as well as visiting shops to inform retailers of the regulations surrounding storage and sale of fireworks. For info on fireworks safety, call: 020 8356 4911; or visit: www.hackney.gov.uk/eh-fireworks-safety-426.htm

Domestic violence help TIMES and venues for the Council's domestic violence and hate crime drop-in surgeries are changing. Instead of taking place at Neighbourhood Housing Offices, the sessions will now happen every Monday at an office near the Town Hall. People who need specialist advocacy, advice or counselling in complete confidence should phone ahead to let the advisors know they are coming. The exact location will be kept anonymous for safety reasons. The service is run by case workers fluent in English, Bengali and Turkish. However, interpreters for other languages can be found if an appointment is booked in advance. For more information call free: 0800 056 0905.

Baby on board A SINGLE decker bus turned into an unlikely ward when a baby was born during rush hour last month. Emiloju Fatimah Lawal went into labour but never made it to Homerton Hospital as her new son Olacidebe Dennis Agbwla arrived on the 394 bus. The driver and a passenger were on hand to provide assistance and an ambulance arrived shortly afterwards to find mother and baby doing well. Having been advised the 394 bus is constructed by Alexander Dennis, Emiloju felt Dennis would make an apt middle name. “I really want to show my appreciation and think it is quite nice for him to have a link with where he was born,” she added.

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

Aim to inspire By Nick Rutherford

HE things I’ve done as a lad out of Hackney because of my charitable work are phenomenal. I’ve been everywhere and met everyone. I’ve had dinner at Buckingham Palace, at Clarence House, and Windsor Castle. “I’ve met prime ministers, royalty, the Queen. That’s the great thing about this country. It doesn’t matter where you come from, if you succeed or give something back, then there are no barriers.” So explains multimillionaire businessman Peter Cruddas as we chat in his office, the headquarters of CMC Markets near the Tower of London. It’s less than five miles from where he grew up here in Hackney, but a world away. Now 56, Peter was named the richest man in the City of London by Sunday Times in 2007, with an estimated fortune of £860million. The father-of-four has homes in Monaco, Antibes, Hertfordshire and Piccadilly and travels between them in his private jet. A far cry from where he and his twin Stephen and elder brother John grew up on Bracklyn Court Estate before moving to Vince Court when the twins were six, and where John stayed until he left home in his early twenties.

T

His father, also John, worked at Smithfield meat market and “drank and smoked himself to death”, while his mother Lily was the “rock” of the family who supported the three boys. He left Shoreditch Comprehensive with no qualifications, aged 15, and went to work in the City as a telex operator for Western Union. After being made redundant, he went on to work in the trading rooms of banks including the Bank of Iran and Marine Midland.



Hackney is where I come from. If I can give somebody a little bit of hope it’s a pleasure



He said: “I was just a dogsbody on the telex machines but I picked up trading, worked in banks and learned the ropes.” In 1989 he set up CMC Markets and it was the arrival of the internet in the early 1990s that really saw business explode because it offered everyone the ability to trade on the world’s financial markets through his company. Now he is in a position where his charity, the Peter Cruddas Foundation, has been able to give away £15million in the past two years to 60 organisations including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, The

Peter Cruddas was brought up on a Hackney estate and left school with no qualifications — he’s now worth £860 million

Prince’s Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Royal Opera House. He aims to give away £100million his lifetime. “Fifteen million in two years – we’ve not made a bad start,” he quips. So, given he hardly needs the publicity, why has he found time to speak to Hackney Today, I ask. He explained: “Hackney is where I came from. This is an hour out of my time – but if I can give somebody a little bit of hope and inspiration it’s a pleasure. Someone might be feeling a little bit depressed because

their lives aren’t moving forward then they see this and think ‘this guy did it, he’s from round here, he left school at 15, I can do it’. And if it helps one person it’s worth it.” He adds: “I was amazed when I went to Hackney,

and it’s become very trendy. It’s really changed and property prices have shot up. But I’m pleased to see Hackney being regenerated and that it’s now a very multicultural society. Everyone lives side by side and it doesn’t matter where

you come from, what religion or race you are – it’s just a fantastic borough and I enjoy going there.”

THE GREEN GENIE

All your recycling questions answered Q: I carved a pumpkin with my children for Halloween. Can this be recycled in my blue bin, and if not, what should I do with it?

Waste watchers Residents at a community composting event (above); green pledges being made at Tesco in Morning Lane (below); and a waste sculpture made by Jubilee Primary pupils with help from artist Julie Beech, which was displayed in St Pancras International Station

A: All food waste, with the exception of raw meat and bones, can be put into your blue bin to be recycled. You can put the pumpkin, along with the scrapings from inside, into your blue bin and put this out on your collection day. Alternatively if you have a compost bin or wormery you can chop up the pumpkin and compost it at home. All food waste collected in the borough is taken to a composting plant in Edmonton, north London, where it is broken down to produce compost. This is brought back to the borough and used on parks and green spaces to improve the local environment and make Hackney a greener place to live.

UNDREDS of residents keen to live a greener life took part in the second annual Watch Your Waste Week from 19-25 October. The week aimed to highlight the amount of waste being thrown away, as well as ways to reduce it. More than 300 people made green pledges at the Recycling Team’s plastic bag amnesty stall at Tesco in Morning Lane. In return they were given a reusable bag as well as a ‘bag for life’. Over 100 people attended a Give or Take

residents will participate through the installation of a new composting unit, as well as a growing wall where they can plant

food. The project will use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to provide tips and support on reducing

waste and reducing the carbon footprint. Environment Secretary Hilary Benn announced the new locations alongside a new Zero Waste Places Standard for local authorities, which will recognise areas that go above and beyond the national waste targets, while supporting them with small grants for further development.

Dr Compost was on hand to give composting and wormery advice to more than 100 people at a free compost give away event. Residents from Warburton and Darcy estate used the week to get more people on the estate using their new

community composter. Installed in August this year, it gives residents the option to divert their food waste, and the compost is used to grow food in the raised planting beds on the estate. Cllr Alan Laing, Cabinet Member for neighbourhoods, said: “I am pleased that so many residents are supporting our commitment to make Hackney one of the greenest boroughs in London and urge others to join us and keep the momentum going by using our improved services and facilities.”

Green spending

The green heroes proudly display their certificates with Speaker of Hackney Cllr Muttalip Unluer

Standing up for the environment STUDENTS, teachers and volunteers were among those celebrated at an event highlighting the importance of sustainability in schools. Altogether 19 people were named ‘Green Heroes’, with each being commended for their contribution to promoting conservation. The awards were organised by The

Learning Trust, and took place on 6 October. Joe Jones, a Year six winner from Jubilee Primary School, N16, was nominated by fellow ecoconscious pupils for his mature and thoughtful approach to greener living. From Tyssen school, site manager John Hayward was commended for

building a pond on the school site that has attracted birds, frogs and other wildlife, as well as creating a living green roof that has cut down energy usage. Speaking at the event, Speaker of Hackney, Cllr Muttalip Unluer, said: “We need to preserve the environment for future generations and this all

starts in the schools. Hopefully we can all help undo the damage done by previous generations and embedding this message at school level is paramount to the conservation of our resources and planet.” The Learning Trust’s Sustainable Schools Initiative supports schools in Hackney to become sustainable by 2020.

THE Council has received a top rating for ‘green’ spending from the Mayor of London. Thanks to its focus on buying recycled and sustainable products across the Council, Hackney received a ‘gold’ rating in the Mayor of London’s Green Procurement Code on 26 October. New solar powered payand-display machines save the Council 72 tonnes of CO2 every year. A new paper supply for printers is 100 per cent recycled, and also avoids use of damaging bleaching agents. The Council’s fleet of vehicles also has green credentials. The number of electric vehicles in service, has increased, while others

use sustainably-sourced biodiesel. Cllr Sophie Linden, Cabinet Member for Customer Services and Sustainability, said: “The Council is committed to maintaining Hackney as the greenest borough in London, by putting the environment at the heart of how we deliver services. There's still a good way to go, and this is a step in the right direction. The Mayor of London's Green Procurement Code encourages organisations in the capital, including small to medium-sized businesses, to consider environmental impacts when awarding contracts and purchasing supplies.

NEWS IN BRIEF Top-class GCSE results SCHOOLS in the borough can take pride in achieving some of the most improved GCSE results nationwide. Data from the Department of Children, Schools and Families found Hackney to have the highest increase in Hackney pupils celebrating their GCSE results in August students achieving at least five A* to C grades, including English and Maths, in the country. As students celebrated their results as individuals, the schools saw GCSE results improve 8.8 percentage points compared to 2008. In addition the borough has also improved by 34.5 percentage points since 1998, one of the largest jumps nationwide and second only to Kensington and Chelsea.

Brain food at breakfast Pupils can tuck in to a healthy breakfast at St John of Jerusalem Primary School, and also take part in sports (below)

All stories by Marcel Reinard

UPILS from three primary schools in Hackney can enjoy food and fun every school day, thanks to a breakfast club. The club is held at St John of Jerusalem Primary School, but also opens its doors to pupils from Orchard and Lauriston primary schools. The club

P

is supported by Sanctuary Housing, The Learning Trust and Let’s Get Fit for Sport, a Hackney-based sports education company.

From 8am every school day, between 20 and 30 children are given a healthy breakfast, plus the chance to take part in supervised sports and

games before their lessons begin. Stephanie Killer, Sanctuary’s regional director, said: “We wanted to support this breakfast club as it gives parents more options and greater flexibility. “Not only do they have the reassurance of a safe place for their children, but also the youngsters get the chance to socialise with friends and share a nutritional breakfast in a fun environment.”

Follow your Olympic dreams TWO Olympic medallists inspired Year 9 students at The Bridge Academy to follow their dreams. David Hemery, gold medallist in the 1968 Mexico Olympics in the 400m hurdles, and Guin Batten, silver medallist in rowing at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, explained how they found a way to overcome obstacles. During a workshop called ‘Be the Best You Can Be’ students were taught to focus on the values and qualities that

would most help achieve their dreams. One student said: “Even if people put you down, you can achieve. Guin was told she couldn’t row because she was too small, but she

did it anyway.” Common themes discussed were selfawareness, persistence and self-belief. The students later put this into practice as they aimed to improve their times on a

circuit of sporting activities including rowing, standing jumps and sprints. The half-day workshop last month was a joint initiative with East London Business Alliance and 21st Century Legacy, the charity set up by David Hemery. Anne Barton, Interim Principal at The Academy, said: “It was a fantastic opportunity to inspire our students and to get them to think and talk about their dreams.”

Passing education back SCHOOLS secretary Ed Balls has announced his intention to end his department's formal intervention in the running of education services in Hackney. He said he was pleased with improvements in Hackney's schools and would end intervention as soon as he was convinced the necessary support to continue the good progress was in place. Central Government intervened in 2002, when The Learning Trust was set up to improve educational standards in the borough. The Council signed a 10-year contract with the Trust, making it responsible for running all schools, nurseries and play centres. Key improvements include higher GCSE pass rates, and 90 per cent of the borough's secondary schools graded as good or outstanding by schools inspector Ofsted.

Going strong at 50 HITTING 50 may mean time to slow down for some; but for Cardinal Pole Catholic School it signifies a bumper year of celebrations. Since its Golden Jubilee festivities began in September, the school has had barbecues, a charity walk and a visit to the burial ground of the school’s namesake Cardinal Reginald Pole (1500-1558) at Canterbury Cathedral . Katherine Hartigan, Cardinal Pole’s headteacher, said: “The real strength of the school is its welcoming and warm atmosphere where individuals feel valued and have the opportunity to develop spirituality as well as academically”. Cardinal Pole is looking for former pupils and staff to get in touch for upcoming events. For info call: 0208 985 5150 or e-mail: [email protected]

Bogey Wonderland By Gareth Mason

A MAGICAL trail of fairytales and mythology is currently on view at the Museum of Childhood. Organised by a 50-strong group of mainly Hackney-based artists hailing from a variety of backgrounds and countries, the free exhibit ‘Wonderland’ offers imaginative and sometimes sinister perspectives that doesn’t fail to stray too far from the moods and themes found in each original story. Cautionary tales and battles between good and evil are discussed alongside surreal and thoughtful pieces drawing upon ‘Rapunzel’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.

LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL AT THE VORTEX 13-22 Nov The London Jazz Festival in association with BBC Radio 3 returns for its 17th year with a jam-packed programme that is truly reflective of the diverse nature of the capital. From stars of the American jazz tradition and key players on the European scene through to free musical thinkers and the best of British, plus a whole raft of free concerts and opportunities to get involved in the music – there is something for everyone. Vortex Jazz Bar, 11 Gillette Sq, E8. Info: 020 7254 4097; [email protected]; www.vortexjazz.co.uk

While the visual content is unlikely to scare its younger audience too much, the exhibit doesn’t shy away from the drama and cruelty that many of these tales deal in to put across their message. That said, it had slipped my mind that the wicked queen in Snow White was forced to dance to her death wearing red-hot iron shoes. Thought-provoking questions are posted about the exhibit to highlight the relevance of the themes though children more motivated by a bit of harmless role-play can stimulate their imaginations more practically with the aid of a costume box. ‘Wonderland’ runs at the Museum of Childhood until 10 January 2010 www.hackneysingers.org.uk

AN AUDIENCE WITH HACKNEY SINGERS 8 Nov, 6.30-9.30pm A unique concert – featuring performces of Mozart, Kyrie in D Minor; Dvorak, Te Deum; and Vivaldi, Magnificat – with allows for full audience participation.

The light fangtastic By Marcel Reinard

EVERYONE seems loves to a vampire these days – their good looks, difficult sun-toskin condition; they’re nothing but lonely recluses cursed by a world that fails to understand them. Well actually they’re not and a new play at the Barbican plans to puts them right back in their horrifying, bloodthirsty, Christopher-Lee-with-fangs-out shaped box. ‘They Only Come at Night: Visions’ is the first part of a vampire trilogy by theatre company Slung Low and combines live performance, dance, digital projection, music and, most importantly, atmosphere

to recreate the legendary fear of one of our favourites from the undead family. The play follows a walk-through experience, which will take the audience from the Box Office at the venue to a secret location. Only three people can see the show at any one time so it seems the team behind the show aim to turn up the frights by turning down the numbers. Slung Low has revealed little except a full threedimensional experience ‘shadows’ and ‘terrifying consequences’. ‘Twilight’, eat your heart out.

Safer streets Young people aged nine-12 from Chatham ward with PCSO Matthew Willsden and Sergeant Louise Gill; and in discussion during a panel meeting

By Miranda Yates

ANELS of young people from Hackney estates are meeting with Police and Council officers to discuss how to make their neighbourhoods safer. The youth-led project aims to build trust between the authorities and young people; create a bond between the generations; and give young people a stronger voice to express concerns about safety within their communities. Police will share up-to-

P

the-minute data on crime figures, and youth crime patterns as well as listening to young people’s concerns.



Young people often notice things that can be invisible to adults



Police Community Support Officer, Matthew Wilsdon said: “Young people have a unique and important perspective on safety. They spend longer out and about on the streets

and often notice things that can be invisible to adults. Many also have strong views on the work the Police should be doing to protect them and their peers from harm.” The Youth Community Action Panels will mirror adult panels, which already run in every ward, discussing concerns and setting priorities for the Police and Council. An ambassador from the youth panel will attend adult meetings and vice versa. There are currently youth panels in Haggerston and Chatham wards, but the Council is working with members of Hackney’s

Youth Parliament and Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams to roll out the initiative across the borough. In Haggerston, 16 Year Nine students from the Bridge Academy were voted onto the panel by classmates. Police asked students to consider voting for people who combined good communication skills with a streetwise streak.

Shouting for more By Antonio Akue, 15, Amrita Kaur-Landa, 14 and Ola Adeniran, 13

BRILLIANT performances at the allsinging all-dancing Jack Petchey Awards had the huge audience of young people on their feet shouting for more at the Hackney Empire. Headliners reporters went along to cover the awards ceremony, organised by the Jack Petchey Foundation,

which recognises the achievements of young people involved in youth clubs across London. The ceremony started with a street dance performance entitled “Glow in the Dark” from a young group called Estate of the Arts. They danced to a number of songs but the main appeal of the performance was a young Michael Jackson impersonator. After this stunning introduction, the lucky 160 young people were

called to the stage one after the other to collect their awards. We also had a great performance from the wonderful 17 year old singer, Ruth Brown (right). She gave us an amazing performance singing a couple of brilliant songs from the Dream Girls movie. Ruth was an

amazing performer, lighting up the stage while singing and her powerful voice was enough to get the audience crazy. The ceremony was

a celebration of the achievements of young people. We definitely appreciated this all the way from the compere’s bad jokes to the great performances. We think the award winners should be proud of their accomplishments and keep up the hard work.

The stories on this page have been supplied by Headliners – a youth journalism charity, that helps young people aged 8 to 19 to produce videos, radio, written news reports and podcasts. For more information visit: www.headliners.org

Toys through time All stories by Marcel Reinard

NTIQUES Roadshow toys expert Bunny Campione was the guest of honour at the opening of Homerton Hospital’s latest exhibition on October 21. The world of toys is the theme of the 30th art exhibition held at the

A

hospital, produced with help from the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. ‘Hidden Treasures’ is a collection of photographs



Hidden Treasures is a visual record of extraordinary objects and items



of toys from the basement of the museum. The hospital’s arts curator, Shaun Caton, said: “Hidden Treasures is a photographic journey through the store room cupboards and cabinets beneath the museum – a visual record of some extraordinary objects and items related to the history of childhood.” The exhibition, at the hospital’s education centre, consists of 64 colour

photos, with subjects ranging from ancient Roman and Syrian grave goods, to dolls and other toys. There are also images of Victorian porcelain feeding bottles and inhalers. The exhibition will run until end of the year and is open to the public.

Don’t forget about seasonal flu ELDERLY residents and those with long-term health conditions are being urged to get their free seasonal flu jab. Everyone aged 65 and over is routinely offered the jab every winter, as are younger people with conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and serious kidney and liver disease. Every year, there are

approximately 8,000 seasonal flu-related deaths in the winter months in England and Wales. Seasonal flu, also known as influenza, is a highly infectious illness caused by a virus. The virus, which is different from swine flu (H1N1), changes every year, as does the vaccine, so, it is important that

those at risk ensure they receive the jab to protect themselves. The seasonal flu jab does not protect against swine flu. A vaccine is due to be made available later in the winter. Residents who believe they are eligible for a seasonal flu jab should contact their GP.

HOMERTON Hospital has received a double ‘excellent’ rating for the second year running in its annual health check – the only acute hospital in London to retain this rating. The Care Quality Commission awarded an excellent rating to Homerton both for the Homerton Hospital quality of services it provides to patients and its record of sound financial management. The health check examines all NHS services across the country and scores them against a number of national targets and standards. Homerton is one of only a few trusts to receive an ‘excellent’ rating in both categories – quality of services and financial management. The Trust has scored ‘excellent’ for use of resources for the past three years. Nancy Hallett, the Trust’s Chief Executive, said: “These are again terrific results, which reflect an outstanding effort from all our staff to improve services for our patients, whilst at the same time, working efficiently and effectively to build up a sound financial base for the future. “Foundation Trust status now allows us the freedom to use our resources in a way that ensures a direct benefit to our patients. Additionally, we have invested over £10 million into new facilities for IVF treatment and the mother and baby centre, which is soon to open.”

Building’s historic status A HACKNEY health centre is celebrating its new Grade II listed status with a public tour of the building. St Leonard’s Health Centre in Kingsland Road received the listing from English Heritage last month. The free tour, which starts at 7pm on 23 November, will offer visitors the chance to learn about the history and architecture of the building. St Leonard’s Hospital grew out of the infirmary at the St Leonard Shoreditch Workhouse. Over the years much work was done to the building, which was even condemned in 1934. St Leonard’s Health Centre is now run by the City & Hackney Teaching Primary Care Trust. For more info or to book a place call Lisa on: 020 8806 4003; or visit: www.hackneysociety.org

EMEMBRANCE Sunday this year falls on 8 November, with Armistice Day following on Wednesday 11. Ceremonies will take place to honour those who have lost their lives in the service of their country, with poppy wreaths laid at many of the war memorials found across the borough. Most war memorials were erected following the

R

First World War of 19141918, with the names of Second World War casualties added later. However, while the 1920s was a significant time for the construction of memorials by local councils, less was done to guarantee their good condition in the long term. The War Memorials (Local Authorities’ Powers) Act of 1923 permitted ‘local authorities under certain circumstances to maintain, repair and protect war memorials vested in them’ but this was not a legal obligation

to use public money for their upkeep. Many memorials were placed in churches and other places of worship. While parish councils and the Royal British Legion care for them today, there is no central body or person legally responsible for their upkeep. Hackney has many different war memorials commemorating both civilians and the armed forces, some of which are found in public places, some in more private locations. Others no longer exist, such as the street

memorials that sprang up in the area during the First World War listing names and decorated with flowers and photographs. One of these was created in Daubeney Road, Clapton, which was dedicated in 1917 and gave the names of all those from the street who were away serving in the armed forces as well as those who had been killed in action. Street memorials seem to have originated in the area through the inspiration of the then Rector of South Hackney, and were given royal approval when

Queen Mary viewed one during her visit to the East End in August 1916. Very little else is known about these local memorials, so if you have any information or memories of them please contact Hackney Archives and let us know.

Utility companies now need a permit to dig Hackney roads

Taking control of roadworks UTILITY companies now need a permit before digging up Hackney’s roads after the Government approved a new permit scheme. The scheme will help reduce congestion and smooth traffic flow in the borough, as it will allow Transport for London and the Council to impose conditions and timing over utility works. Cllr Alan Laing, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “This scheme has the potential to make a big difference to Hackney's road users. It will hopefully cut the inconveniences caused by badly timed road works and allow the Council to set conditions for companies to help minimise disruption."

Bus route view RESIDENTS are being asked for their views on proposals by Transport for London (TfL) to extend the 488 bus route from Clapton to Dalston. The extended route would provide a much-needed link for residents going to Homerton Hospital, the Petchey Academy and Bsix Sixth Form College, as well as to London Overground services. The full route extension would lead from Clapton, Kenninghall Roundabout along Kenninghall Road, Rendlesham Road, Downs Road, Rectory Road, Shacklewell Lane and Kingsland High Street finishing at Dalston Junction Station. The deadline is 20 November 2009. To have your say visit: www.tfl.gov.uk and type bus route 488 into search.

Our new line is on the way HACKNEY’S new Overground line has moved a step closer. The first passenger train was tested last month on the £1billion track, which Transport for London (TfL) is building from Dalston to West Croydon and Crystal Palace. The test train ran at 10mph from New Cross Gate to Dalston Junction and back to check all the

newly built sections of the line. All the tests were successful and further tests up to a top speed of 45mph will now be carried out. TfL rail boss Ian Brown said: “This was an important day for the East London Line project. All the track, stations and signals are there and the line is ready for intensive testing and fitting out. The test train is now running

and checking the route from end-to-end.” The testing comes as construction nears completion at Dalston Junction, as well as Shoreditch High Street, Haggerston and Hoxton. Workers at all four stations are now preparing to finish the wiring and install information systems and signs. The line is due to be finished in 2010.

Recipes straight from the ovens at Hoxton Apprentice www.hoxtonapprentice.com

BEFORE joining the Hoxton Apprentice, Patrick Jarrett, 49, had made his name as a top DJ. However, following crisis and tragedy in his personal life, by his mid-forties Patrick was not only out of work, but also homeless. Dedicated to his family and used to being the provider, Patrick realised he needed a career that would allow him the creative flexibility he thrived on, but also provide a reliable income. Patrick has always had a passion for cooking. His brother owned a Caribbean restaurant and he had occasionally helped out in the kitchen. Hearing about an opening on Hoxton’s Healthy Living Programme, he joined up for the six-week training course. A natural leader and brilliant peer mentor, Patrick’s creativity was soon very evident in the kitchen. When the programme ended he applied for a full Hoxton Apprenticeship and looks forward to gaining industry qualifications. “Eventually”, said the former DJ, “I might even open my own restaurant.”

RESIDENTS’ views are being sought on plans to improve Mabley Green in Homerton. Following discussions with residents and the Mabley Green User Group, the Council has created draft proposals to improve the green. Residents, park users and interested groups have until 31 December to make their comments. The new design has been commissioned by the Council, in partnership with Design for London, with the funding secured for a second artificial turf pitch, new changing rooms and an outdoor gym. Other elements of the

design are proposals at this stage and will depend on the Council securing additional funding. Creating a final design for the Green will make these funding applications more likely to succeed. To take part in the survey visit: www. consultationfinder.com/ hackney For info call David White on: 020 8356 3899, or e-mail: david.white @hackney.gov.uk

Drinking views THE Council is considering introducing a borough-wide campaign to tackle alcohol related antisocial behaviour, and wants to hear the views of

residents and businesses. The borough-wide Controlled Drinking Area (CDA) would give police the powers to confiscate alcohol or issue fixed penalty fines to those drinking and causing disorder, or displaying threatening behaviour in streets, parks and open spaces. This does not make it illegal to drink alcohol responsibly in a public place but aims to reduce anti-social behaviour.

The Mayor & Councillors Councillors are elected by Hackney residents and serve for four years. The last borough elections were in May 2006. Councillors have a range of responsibilites, including helping to oversee the Council and its services. They all hold advice surgeries where you can meet your 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, they can often point you in the right direction and tell you who you need to see. Hackney has 57 councillors representing areas called wards – illustrated in the map opposite.

Hackney Council is committed to improving services and increasing opportunities for all, and making a safer, cleaner, greener borough. Here we focus on a service that helps to make this possible:

CLEANING UP THE STREETS Andrew Dove, monitoring officer, waste strategy Andrew Dove, 47, has been working with the Neighbourhoods and Regeneration team in Hackney for a year but has spent almost two decades getting people to think more about waste and recycling. Before his current role as a monitoring officer, he worked for Islington Council as both an environment and a recycling officer. Now based in Mare Street, he says: “Most of my day is spent around the streets of Hackney wherever I’m needed most.”

As one of a team of three working under a senior monitoring officer, his work takes him all over the borough to keep tabs on the state of the local streets. “Each of us is assigned a ward where we assess potential or recurring problems. “In my work we regularly meet face to face with the public and it makes me feel optimistic that most people are very positive about the challenges of taking better care of our environment.”
