Meetings are at 7pm at Streatham Business Centre, next to The Hideaway on Streatham High Road (opposite Streatham Train Station).

Streatham Action is part of the Lambeths Forum Network. It's an important place for individual residents as well as local groups like neighbourhood watches, residents associations, action groups, forums and individual campaigners - to share ideas, news and get their voices heard.

If you haven't been along to a meeting, do consider coming.  All local people are welcome.  It's an important space for local people, and does some very important work.  It has a small Community Chest fund to support local projects and will be running, supporting and taking part in some important local events and initiatives over the next few months.  

In particular:

A Streatham Youth Convention event – 13th April, 12-4 at the Valley Rd Playing Fields.

‘Made in Streatham’ (a showcase event for Streatham based designer makers and artists) – 21st April, 11-4 at the Serendipity Arts & Crafts CafĂ© (formerly Native Hop) opposite Streatham Station.

Central Streatham Welfare Reform event – venue and date to be confirmed in April/May, to let local people know about the Government's cuts to welfare and how they will effect local people.

It is also inputting into the impending changes to Streatham High Road.
