And the good news is that there is no change if you have your normal rubbish and recycling collection on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If you normally have your rubbish collected on a Friday this will now be collected on Saturdays for the next two weeks (Christmas Day, 25 December and New Years Day, 1 January.) The normal collections will resume on Monday 4 January 2010.
And they will even collect Christmas trees!
You can put your Christmas tree out with your normal rubbish and recycling in the week commencing Monday 11 January 2010 and it will be collected and recycled by Lambeth.
If you live on an estate or other housing that doesnt have a kerbside collection then Lambeth will be running Christmas tree recycling facilities at four sites in the borough every day in the week 11 -15 January 2010.
The Christmas tree recycling site nearest to us in Vassall Ward is in Kennington Park, SE11 (just at the top of Brixton Road) Other places you can take you tree are Clapham Common SW4, Streatham Common SW16 and Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre, Vale Street SE27
Items to be recycled should be put in orange plastic bags or the green plastic boxes available from the council. Extra bags can be obtained at council offices, libraries, by phoning the council on 020 7926 9000 or by requesting them online.
On estates there is usually a central recycling bin where you can put your items - these should be easy to find in a convenient location. These bins are emptied regularly by the Lambeth estate collection crews.
For more information on what you can and cant recycle see the Lambeth recycling pages
Lambeth introduce new recycling services - now you can recycle your waste clothes and electrical items
Now if you have any clothing you dont want or electrical items simply phone the council on 020 7926 9000 to arrange a collection date.
Once collected the items will be sorted and the clothing passed on for use in the developing world, electrical items will be turned into new products.
This service is not for larger electrical goods such as fridges, washing machines or televisions - to recyle these please book a bulky items waste collection either by phoning 020 7926 9000 or online at the Lambeth website
Further information on recycling and waste collections in Lambeth is available on the Lambeth website
Vassall Ward Councillor Kingsley Abrams welcomed the new service saying "this new service will bring benefits for everyone in Vassall Ward as many of us do not own cars and so its hard to take this waste to Lambeth's reuse and recycling centre."
He added "This new service should also reduce the number of electrical items dumped at the side of the road which is both hazardous and unsightly. Its an example of the really useful services that Lambeth Council provides, services that I do my best to make sure meet the needs of Vassall residents."

Route P5 runs from Elephant and Castle to Vauxhall via Brixton and Stockwell and travels almost exclusively along the backroads where people live, rather than the 'main' roads such as A23 Brixton Road, Camberwell New Road etc.
The route of the P5 has been under consideration by Transport for London for a while. In particular changes have been seen in Vassall Ward - the original route for the P5 was along Camberwell New Road, Vassall Road, Langton Road, Lothian Road, Akerman Road and Loughborough Road. This was then changed to Camberwell New Road, Flodden Road, Calais Street, Lothian Road and Akerman Road.
As a result of major works in Myatts Field Park the bus was again diverted to Knatchbull Road as a temporary measure.
Now Transport for London and Lambeth Borough Council have proposed a public consultation for traffic management proposals along Lothian Road between Langton Road and Patmos Road, i.e., double yellow lines on one side only. The consultation is planned to take place after Christmas, with the final decision being taken by lambeth and TfL shortly afterwards for implementation in summer 2010.
Vassall Labour Councillor Kingsley Abrams said: "I am delighted by the decision of the Council and Transport for London to consult with local people on the route of the P5 bus. The P5 bus provides a valuable service to local residents and its important that they have a say on what happens to this bus in the future."

All are welcome: come along to celebrate Advent and the start of the festive season
This event is being put on by the Myatts Field Park Project Group.
20 November 2009
The lively event saw the Mayor of London Boris Johnson questioned on London-wide and South London specific topics such as transport, housing, employment, Policing and youth facilities. Other members of the London Assembly also took part in the event which was chaired by Lambeth and Southwark Labour London Assembly member Valerie Shawcross.

He is also cutting £150 million of subsidy from bus services which will mean that they will run less often and will be more overcrowded.
At the same time the Mayor plans to abolish the Western extension of the Congestion Charge zone and get rid of the extra charge that was introduced for 4x4 vehicles which cause the most pollution.
This all comes on top of Boris' decision to cut the Cross River Tram which would have brought benefits to the people of Vassall Ward.
Former Labour Mayor Ken Livingstone has pointed out that Johnson did not have to make the cuts in services which will hit those is poorly paid jobs the most. In particular Livingstone criticised the decision to get rid of the Western Congestion Charge zone.
Ken commented "His plan to abolish the western extension of the congestion charge to Kensington will cost £50m-70m a year. His decision to scrap the £25 charge on the worst polluting gas guzzlers, like Chelsea tractors, has cost another £50m a year."
Lambeth and Southwark Greater London Aseembly Member Valerie Shawcross also condemned the move noting "The proposed cuts to the bus service are deeply worrying and, along with his fare rises, contradict all the Mayor has said about getting people out of their cars and on to public transport."
She added "Buses in London are set to get more expensive, less frequent and overcrowded with salami sliced service cuts. The quality of the service could also decline if TfL drops its incentive contracts with bus operators. All this adds up to an attack on the bus service and its passengers who are clearly way down on the Mayor's list of priorities."
The main changes in fares from January are
- Oyster pay as you go bus fare up from £1.00 to £1.20
- A seven day bus pass up from £13.80 to £16.60
- On the Tube, the Zone 1 Oyster pay as you go fare u[ from £1.60 to £1.80
- Most other Oyster pay as you go fares on Tube also increase by 20p, with larger increases in some longer distance peak fares
11 November 2009
Vassall Labour Action Team member Tracy Ritson welcomed the move saying "I like all Lambeth tenants welcome this extra boost to our incomes at Christmas time. The Labour Council and Labour government were able to work together to deliver this rent reduction and maintain the massive investment in Lambeth's housing. "
Lambeth Borough Council have put answers to common questions on the reduction on their website
10 November 2009
Issues up for discussion will include the following:
- renewal of the windows in the inner parts of the estate
- the drainage system on Evesham Walk estate
- cleaning on the estate
- anti-social behaviour
Everyone on the Myatts Field South estate is welcome to attend to raise their concerns

Children’s centres bring together a range of services for children under five and their families. Services include childcare, learning and development for children from birth to five, family support services, health and advice about employment. The aim
To date Lambeth Council has spent a total of £1,225,583 in capital on Brixton Children Centre. This has provided a full refurbishment and remodelling of the building, and equipment for the centre.
In 2008/09, £240,000 revenue was spent on Brixton Children Centre, and the provision for the current financial year (2009/2010) is £320,128. This funding has all been drawn from central government funding – the Early years, Sure Start and childcare grant.
Kingsley Abrams, Vassall Labour councillor said: "Brixton Children’s Centre is a valuable resource for local families. This is a key stabilising support for parents with young children. This kid of investment would not have happened without the commitment of the Labour government.”

The meeting was attended by Vassall Ward Councillor Kingsley Abrams and Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey. The meeting sought to find a way that residents of the Holland Town estate in Vassall ward and the landlord Lambeth Living could work together to make the area better.
Councillor Kingsley Abrams said: “Following the collapse of the Tenant Management Organisation I lobbied Lambeth Living to work with the local residents to set up a TRA for this estate. TRAs doe valuable work in bring residents' concerns to the attention of the landlord and getting problems dealt with at an early stage which brings benefits to everyone. I and Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey will be working hard to support the TRA and bring benefits for local people."

In Lambeth this will be the second consecutive year with no council tax increase. The Mayor of London has also pledged not to increase the contribution everyone makes towards London-wide bodies such as Transport for London, the Police and other emergency services, known as the precept.
Council Leader Councillor Steve Reed said: “Labour’s worked hard to cut out tens of millions of pounds of waste Lambeth’s Lib Dems and Tories left behind. That’s how we found the money to freeze council tax for two years and still invest in new services like more youth activities and pensioners’ lunch clubs.”

The government school inspectors OFSTED have praised the school calling it “a gem of a school” and listed it as one of the “20 outstanding primary schools excelling against the odds". The praise marks a dramatic turnaround for the school over the past 15 years and the staff, pupils and parents at the Lambeth Borough Council run school have all been praised for their part in transforming the educational opportunities of local children.
Speaking of the top 20 schools Her Majesty Chief Inspector Christine Gilbert said 'Through their passion and professionalism these schools provide great service to children and young people. They show other schools how they can reduce the achievement gap between pupils from different backgrounds. Children are treated as individuals and have the support and expectation to achieve. Staff are passionate about finding ways of doing things better, with a relentless focus on progress in children’s learning. High quality leadership ensures no effort is spared to give pupils a strong foundation."
She added "It is our aim at Ofsted to identify and share better practice to support improvement. Many of the stories in this report are inspiring. They show how schools, regardless of their context can help young people make something of their lives. I hope that other schools will find it useful and inspiring too."
Congratulations to everyone at St John's!

On a recent visit to the park Vassall Councillor Kingsley Abrams commented "the transformation of Myatts Fields park has been amazing and should bring benefits to local residents and local children especially for years to come."
He added "I passed by several times in the summer and saw that the children's play area was absolutely packed with young people enjoying themselves. Well done to the Myatts Fields Park Project Group for overseeing this transformation. I like to think this is Lambeth Council at its best - supporting local residents to transform their areas."

The regeneration of the Myatts North estate in Lambeth's Vassall ward is firmly on track to bring desperately needed new homes, community facilities and green spaces to the estate.
Lambeth Borough Council are using public finance initiative (central government) funding to transform the Myatts North Estate to make it a much more pleasant place in which to live.
The PFI funding will integrate the estate more into the local neighbourhood, provide new homes and refurbish existing homes which have been vandalised and neglected (like the one pictured, left).
The new and refurbished homes will be available in different tenures to best meet individual families' housing needs and wishes. the funding will also provide new purpose built community facilities, private and public amenity space and training and employment opportunities for local residents. Lambeth Labour has been firmly behind this project since taking control of the Council in 2006.
Vassall Councillor Kingsley Abrams said:“This project will bring brand new homes to a community which is desperate to see changes made to their area. The green spaces will be protected and a purpose built community centre will be placed at the heart of the new estate. Labour is delivering on its promise to regenerate Vassall ward.”

Currently each Council Tax payer in Lambeth and across London pays £310 a year (band D house) towards services such as Transport for London, the Fire service and the Metropolitan Police.

Instead of closing the facility the Council is looking at ways to improve and expand the services offered by this much loved and much used local library.
Over the next few months we will be looking into how we can modernise the current building to make it better for users or even whether its possible to build a new library on the existing site. Before the council decides what to do we will be asking local people what they want from the service.
Labour Councillors will make sure that our area gets its fair share of council investment.
Vassall Ward Councillor Kingsley Abrams said “reports of the Minet’s closure are political mischief making by our opponents. My colleagues and I are committed to expanding library services across the borough, the Labour Council will not close the Minet Library.”
