October 2015 : last Thursday was the offcial re-opening of the Polworth Road site, with 8 refurbished almshouse cottages and 9 beautiful new flats. 40 people including local and Lambeth councillors, architects, builders and neighbouring and other Streatham organisations joined residents and Trustees to see Chukka Umunna bury a time capsule and declare the site open. It was a lovely event.

April 2015 : One of our Trustees, Paul Lehmann, attended a graduation ceremony at the Nehemiah Project on 22nd April. The ceremony marked the completion by three residents of the Nehemiah programme 'A New Future'. In 2014 Thrale gave £3000 towards the first stage of this programme, which helps men break out of a cycle of addiction, crime and imprisonment. The three graduates were presented with their certificates by the Sheriff for Greater London, Kevin McGrath.
