Lambeth Life will showcase the many fantastic initiatives in our borough, such as the community groups doing great services for our part of the capital. One such example, highlighted in our first edition, is that of Bandstand Beds – a project in Clapham Common where community members share a green space to grow fresh produce and make new friends. It embodies the wonderful community spirit we saw earlier this year with the Jo Cox memorial ‘great get together’ events.

Lambeth had the highest ‘remain’ vote of any London borough in last summer’s Brexit referendum, with 78.6% of voters signaling their wish to remain in the EU. Lambeth will always remain open to all those who wish to make their contribution to the borough’s ongoing success story – another reason Lambeth needs a new voice to represent its ideals and interests.
