Dulwich Hamlet FC Update

The last game of the 2019-20 season, saw the men’s team register a come-back from behind home win against Hemel Hempstead Town in front of 2,376 spectators at Champion Hill.  This result put them in 16th place in the 22 team National League South table. As it would contrive, this would be the final league position as eventually all National League clubs voted to end the season immediately in Mid-April. The Women’s team ended their inaugural season in late March, following the Football Associations announcement to conclude Women’s football below the third tier.  In the final table, the team was sitting at the top of the league and had been planning for their Capital Senior Cup semi-final, against fellow South London team Crystal Palace, when the season ended. Whilst there is currently no confirmed date for the resumption of the men’s football, the Women’s team have started training and have already completed a couple of behind doors pre-seasonal friendlies. Updates can be found on the club official website www.dulwichhamlet.co.uk . On Monday, 27 July one of the most significant off-field events …

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 …

Garden Talk with Janine Winlaw

Plants adapted to climate change With summers generally getting hotter, it makes sense to use plants in the garden that once established won’t need regular watering. Beth Chatto’s gravel garden and the RHS Hyde Hall’s dry garden, both in Essex, are fantastic examples of drought-tolerant planting. This kind of planting is especially useful in front gardens that get watered less, or south facing gardens. Drought-tolerant plants often originate from hot, dry environments and have adapted in different ways to cope with the conditions. They also tend to like well-drained soil, so add grit or sand to clay soils. Grey or silver-leaved plants conserve water by reflecting the sun. Stachys byzantina (Lamb’s ears) with its woolly silvery low growing leaves is a lovely example of this (S. ‘Silver Carpet’ has smaller neater leaves than S. ‘Big Ears’). Convolvulus cneorum is a fab small evergreen sub shrub with shiny silvery leaves and masses of white flowers throughout the summer, and Ballota pseudodictamnus is a more unusual evergreen sub-shrub with rounded furry grey-white leaves. Sun-loving cistus varieties with …
