I realise I have been a little remiss about posting of late. Much of my attention has been focussed over on my other blog, where knitting events and holidays have taken their toll.
Not to say that nothing has been happening in Deptford and surrounds, however, and I've been keeping up with the gossip on the other local blogs so that I can bring you the latest news.
Firstly news of great things afoot over at the south end of Deptford High Street. Our very own local bike makers Witcombs are having a big revamp. Far from planning to move out of the city, as was gloomily predicted in the Deptford Lives film I saw at the festival earlier this year, they have launched a new line of frames (customise the look as well as the technical details, courtesy of local lad and leading designer Tony), cleared out the shop, and there are even rumours of a cafe! Meanwhile, Barry and Ernie have now got a blog, so check it out and see what's happening over that neck of the woods.
Meanwhile I have also been following events over in Brockley, courtesy of the Coterie. Sounds like the monsters have been taking over with quite a degree of success. My little effort sadly didn't make it on time, mostly down to me not being able to get my arse in gear to organise a reasonable quality printed version in time. Hey ho, here it is all the same.
I'll admit to being quite pleased how the croc turned out, perhaps we will get over to Brockley to meet the other knitted ninjas in due course.
To the west, Coop Pepys has secured funding for a film club, to 'regularly screen popular and specialist cultural and ethnic films'. Screenings will take place at the Community 2000 centre, and are expected to start early next year after equipment has been installed. More details on how to participate, or suggest films to be shown, on the Coop Pepys site.
