Consultation on the proposed new rehabilitation service location on Half Moon Lane

The plan, outlined at the recent Dulwich Community Council, is for Southwark to open an adult residential service at the Holmhurst in Half Moon Lane for about 10-12 adults (in 18-50 age range).  The adults will have a range of mental health and learning disabilities and Southwark will be partnering Optima Care to provide a service of supported living at Holmhurst. All the adults are already known to Southwark and Optima Care but currently are living away from London because of the lack of facilities in Southwark itself.   The opening of the new centre will enable these adults to come back to Southwark and live near their families.   The intention is that they will be integrated into the community and will build a life as part of the Herne Hill community.

There will be three ‘community conversations’ on the proposal as follows:
- Wednesday 15 April 6:30-8:30pm 
- Saturday 18 April 2:00-5:00pm 
- Saturday 24 April 2:00-5:00pm 
Location: Methodist Church Hall, 155 Half Moon Lane SE24 9HU

Old stocks sign listed

The old stocks sign in the small garden at the end of the run of shops in Calton Avenue was listed on 6 March. English Heritage’s justification for listing said “The C18 plaque in the garden adjoining 1d Calton Avenue, Dulwich, dated 1760 and originally part of the village lock up, is listed for the following principal reasons; Historical interest: as a tangible and evocative reminder of crime and punishment during the Georgian period; Rarity: as a rare and particularly early example of an ‘improving’ biblical text used to embellish a now demolished village lock up; Survival: the plaque survives in a very good condition with crisp lettering.”

While the Society welcomes the listing, English Heritage has partly based its decision on an incorrect secondary source. The Society has written to them pointing out the error and referred the organisation to the correct primary source.
