What would make Loughborough Junction a better place to live or work?

Following a recent Lambeth mailing that fell through our door (and yours?), I thought I would add the letter to the blog to try and get an idea of what you think the priorities in Loughborough Junction are. Lambeth have been very supportive of the LJAG (Loughborough Junction Action Group) and are keen to work with residents and businesses on resolving issues in the area.

If you are interested in getting involved with the continued improvement of Loughborough Junction then why not join the Loughborough Junction Action Group. LJAG  (Residents / Businesses Only)

Click Here and then select Join this Group

The Goals of the Action Group.

(i) Independent of the Council.

(ii) An Action group rather than a residents association

(a) as it includes business

(b) Don’t want the constraints attached to a Residents Association.

(iii) Strive for positive action not just complaints

(iv) To put Loughborough Junction on the map (as distinct from Brixton and Herne Hill).

(v) Foster the community around Loughborough Junction and celebrating the area

(vi) Include social events.

We ran a similar poll in May 08, click here to see the poll results.

Did you know there is a Horse Riding stable in Loughborough Junction?

When I first heard that there was a horse riding stable in Loughborough Junction, I couldn’t believe my ears! Not only has the stable been in operation for several years, but it has just received funding of £79,000 for a new riding arena in Wyck Gardens, Loughborough Junction. The funds were awarded through ITV’s Million Pound Giveaway programme, and will mean that much needed work can commence on the site.

This is an amazing project for the area and one that I am sure many of you will want to be involved in. It scares me that I knew nothing of this stables, and I’m curious as to what other amazing projects there are in Loughborough Junction. Please let us know about them!

Ebony Horse Club, The Loughborough Community Centre 105 Angell Road Brixton London SW9 7PD

Patron: Valerie Shawcross C.B.E.

Ebony Horse Club provides riding for all children in Coldharbour Ward, Brixton, London, aged eight to nineteen years who would otherwise have no means of accessing the sport, but specialises in children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, especially those excluded from school.

The club offers riding, horse care lessons and visits to relevant places of interest including the British Racing School, Newmarket, museums and horse shows.

Whenever possible the club also offers children access to other sporting activities which they may not otherwise have an opportunity to experience. To date these include rowing, fencing and adventure weekends in the country.

The club endeavours to get children out into the countryside as much as possible and each year the top ten riders go on a four day trip to ride in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.
