About Heart Streatham

Spring is coming with a blaze of greenery for Streatham! Also the new lighting schemes, new and more trees planted, banners and flowers along the High Road are all adding to the colour – and Heart Streatham is in the middle of it celebrating the beauty all around us! The colour magazine from the heart of Streatham from those with a heart 
for Streatham, of, by and for Streatham.

But we don't want to hide behind a title; let us introduce ourselves:

He was chair of the Streatham Business Board for four years or so until the overwhelming Yes vote for it to become the inStreatham Business improvement District and then chaired Streatham Action for two years. He's a local resident, entrepreneur, parent and shopper, indie music fan and has lived in Streatham for 21 years.

Jane Wroe-Wright has worked with local and national newspapers from Fleet Street to small-town Midlands and Scotland, building advertising, increasing readership and incorporating new media into an ageing print business.

Come up and say “Hi!” We want to meet you, hear from you, discuss with you and if we don't get to meet you in person, we're putting together a complete online presence to carry the news and the conversation in between magazine issues.

We're there, in your letterbox and always only an email away.

We ❤​ Streatham and we're sure you do too!
