Young people in Lambeth are asking local residents to reconsider their opinions of kids and teens in the area. Apparently fewer than 3% of young people get involved in offenses and actually, there are groups of local young people wanting to help the Lambeth area including a Youth Council. There’s more information about the campaign and tonnes of other resources on the Young Lambeth website. Loving the posters.
If you’re anything like Love Clapham, elections can seem like a whole load of gobbledygook that only serious people take part in. No more!

It’s a double Clapper this week that helps show why Clapham is so amazing. The sun comes out and everyone heads to Clapham Common to start sunning their ankles. While the lady with her feet in the air is making a good attempt at Clapper of the week, the real prize has to go to the lady in the background who we spotted performing a range of very controlled stretches bordering on acrobatics. From head stands to raising her body up on its side using only her hands, she proved that Clapham is all about fun in the sun.
Spring is well and truly upon us and the joggers are out in force to make the most of Clapham Common in the sun. This lady shot past at the speed of light. Gotta love that row of trees.
