Link Age Southwark Online Pet Contest

Link Age Southwark is excited to announce their first ever Online Pet Contest.

The Last Word – Ursula Mohan

Ursula Mohan started her career at 15 and has been a working actress ever since. She is delighted to be performing FLO in FLORENCE SMITH – NOW AND THEN in the gardens of Bell House. How long have you lived in the area? We moved to Dulwich in 1987. What do you most value about the area you live in? Our tree lined road and good transport links. If I am in a play it is bonus to feel safe walking home from the bus or train. We are lucky to have friendly and supportive neighbours and to be near the lovely Dulwich Park. There is also a glorious silver birch tree outside our front door. What has changed most during that time? When we first moved here Lordship Lane was a down to earth place with inexpensive property, a police station, and simple high street shops. Now it’s got coffee shops, restaurants, bars, clothes and gift shops as well as a wonderful cinema. Unrecognizable! The most famous person you’ve seen or met? When I was …

The Luna Cinema is back in Dulwich Park

The Luna Cinema’s 12th consecutive open-air film season has returned in a brand new socially spacious way! After a somewhat turbulent few months for cinema, when it appeared only drive in screens might see the light of day this year, film fans across the country (and those without cars) can now look forward to summer evenings in gorgeous settings, enjoying great films on giant screens under the stars. The Luna Cinema was founded in 2008 by George Wood with a showing of Some Like It Hot at Dulwich Park.  In fact it was the readers of SE21 and SE22 magazines who chose the very first film!  So we are delighted that we have five fantastic nights to chose from this month: 16 Sep – Joker @ 7.30pm 17 Sep – Jo Jo Rabbit @ 7.30pm 18 Sep – Rocketman @ 7.30pm 19 Sep – The Greatest Showman @ 7.30pm 20 Sep – Pretty Woman @ 7.30pm   George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said: “As much as we have fully embraced drive in format, …

Dulwich Net Zero

In 30 years time all houses and flats in Dulwich will, by law, have to be Net Zero writes Andrew Cunningham. This means that all energy sources into our homes will need to be zero carbon and zero fossil fuel. 100% green electricity and 100% green hydrogen gas will be the only energy we will be legally allowed to buy to heat and power our homes. This is not a vague aspiration, it is set in law. Gas boilers are already to be outlawed in new build properties by 2025.  Green wood and coal can no longer be burned in open fires. The writing is on the wall. A zero carbon world is coming, whether we like it or not. This is a massive undertaking and will require huge changes in our homes and high streets as well as in the wider national infrastructure (more wind  and solar farms , nuclear power etc). Dulwich Net Zero is a group of people who will encourage each other to make these changes in their homes and businesses. A …
