The Loughborough Junction Forum is a grassroots organisation set up by local people to provide all members of the community with a way to improve the Loughborough Junction area. It is intended that it provides eyes, ears and a collective voice for the community. All participants are invited to provide accounts of what they see happening within the area and to share their concerns and ideas with the forum so that they can be collated and channelled to the relevant authorities.

  1. Local and award-winning novelists SARAH WATERS, EDMUND DE WAAL and STELLA DUFFY have stepped up to the plate to help support the Lambeth borough MINET LIBRARY read-in.

    The read-in will take place on Saturday 12th February from 2.30 through 4.30pm, at MINET LIBRARY, 52 Knatchbull Road, London, SE5 9QY.

    Last weekend saw read-ins and demonstrations of library support across the country for local libraries, whose services are currently under threat. However, this small branch missed out and so local residents and the Friends of Minet Library group have jumped to the task of professing their love of this small library, which although partially destroyed by incendiary bombs on December 8, 1940, survived, and with the help and support of the local community it maintains a lively, thriving existence to this day.

    Highlights of the day will be readings from each of the authors, plus other local celebrities. The Itinerant Poetry Library – a world travelling free poetry library will be offering free membership to locals before it shifts location to San Francisco next week! Face-painting and free children’s activities will be taking place on the day, alongside the opportunity for anyone who turns up to read from their favourite library book.

    For further information please contact Friends of Minet Library by email library@minet.org.uk or tweet to @minetlibrary on twitter.
