Heart Streatham Issue 26

Welcome to the October 2016 edition of Heart Streatham. After a really fantastic second Streatham Free Film Festival last month, and an Indian summer that made Rookery open air events especially delightful, we're enjoying the turn of the season as we look forward to misty mornings over the commons and making the most of our great local live music and restaurant scene as the nights grow longer.

Catch up on what's been happening in Streatham, read about some great new businesses and shops opening soon, and find out about some great events coming up in our What's On section. The friends of Tooting Common update us on the Chestnut Avenue debacle, there's a piece on many of Streatham's more famous local ghosts, in our history piece, an update on the St Leonards Junction debacle, and a former councillor that's made the council and a major developer cough up some interesting information. Take a look at our useful Streatham Directory of businesses and services on page 38 too - it's getting bigger every month!
