This site is run by local residents and we want to support our local shops, cafes, bars and restaurants as much as possible. To do that, we want to start compiling all local special offers in our Clapham Offers forum. Continue reading
Love Clapham thought it was a real shame the day Woolworths packed up shop and left Clapham High Street. It was always going to be a battle of the big brands to take over the prime location and the one that won was Boots. Quite exciting news to have such a well known and successful High Street name. With Superdrug and a couple of independent chemists, Clappers are going to be spoilt for beauty products. Boots opens in June.

It’s one of the best public parks in London and it’s one of the most appealing reasons to visit or live in Clapham. This Clapham Common guide explains everything you need to have a great day out on the common. Continue reading
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.
Eric Prydz and David Guetta are the big DJs to be added to an already outstanding line-up at the South West Four festival. The day long festival has been running for a number of years now and always proves to be a massive event on Clapham Common. This year it’s on Saturday 29th August and costs £40 for the day or combine with Get Loaded in the Park on Sunday for a £70 weekend pass. The full line-up’s in the rest of this post. It’s all a bit “bang bang bang” for our tastes, but we’ll probably see you there anyway. Love Clapham loves a bit of Pjanoo and Call on Me. Continue reading
