The issue of Loneliness has had lots of media coverage recently; which supports what so many said at the last Nunhead CAN meeting about it becoming a bigger issue particularly for young people.
A recent conversation with Claire Sheppard revealed the new national priorities agreed by the Women’s Institute movement which recognises many other points in people’s lives when they become lonely and isolated – including pregnancy or early parenthood; being a carer; suffering a long illness; etc. So, the meeting’s topic of Loneliness is going to be much broader than originally envisaged, and one that touches us all.
Hopefully this offers us much greater scope to strengthen networking, make better links in activities, and create opportunities for helping better address these issues together; and I’m sure we’ll have ideas about how public services could be better joined-up too.
It’ll be good that we can hold it at The Green too after the roof problems of the last two months, and an opportunity for all to meet Jasmin who manages the Centre, and hear about his ambitions for developing its role.

“work in progress is a personal exploration of my parent’s homeland Tobago, West Indies. This emerged as a coping mechanism for my grandfathers death from cancer in 2014. These works provide not only a glimpse into one of the less well known Caribbean Islands, but also a record of the emotions invoked when I visited.” – Gabrielle Guy

We have reopened the door today (16th November) after almost 7 weeks of closure.
Most of the regular activities have found alternative venues during the closure so please check with your trainer/teacher what exact day they will be returning to run their activities from The Green again.
The Ivy Club is opening next week as well and senior yoga and chair-based exercises are back on next week.
We thank you all on the patience and the great support you have shown us.

Nunhead Art Trail is an annual event that gives local artists the opportunity to showcase their work in their homes or studios. It’s a really fun day out navigating yourself around numerous venues using the Nunhead Art trail map to explore, meet the talented folk of Nunhead and even buy their art.
This year, The Green is proud to announce that it will be hosting an exhibition of art made by children during our Arts Workshop, in which they responded experimentally to music, movement , silence, the body and colour, and the result will be on display for everyone to see.
We will also be home to Fragma, a photography collective Fragma – Andreia Neves Nunes, Antonio Rendeiro, Claudia Florencio, Paula Alves and Rodolfo Gil – that emerged from a common interest about the subject of image, intersecting the contemporary, yet distinct visions of their authors.
Don’t miss it! This Saturday 23rd from 11 am to 6 pm and Sunday 24th from 1 pm to 6 pm.

Women in Film present “Mustang” plus “Simi” at The Green Nunhead as part of Peckham Free Film Festival on Wednesday, 6th of September!
“Mustang” is a subtitled Turkish language drama about five young sisters who are imprisoned in their house by their grandmother, as punishment for their perceived flirtatious behaviour, and to keep them unsullied for their future husbands.
Simi is a collective workshop film, made by young women. It is a psychological drama.
Don’t miss it!
Session starts at 8 pm.
Starting tomorrow, Monday July 24, until Friday July 28, we will be hosting a free Arts Workshop for 8-12 years old.
From 10 am to 1 pm, the activities will be a a mix of art-play, building cardboard-junk sculpture, mirror distortion portraits, musical body movement based drawings using music and strange drawing contraptions. bespoke projects which will be directed into expressing whatever they would like to express with art materials at their own pace each day.
The end result is not the goal. The goal is to feel inspired and to have fun and enjoy discovering what they like and don’t like in the art materials and in the process of making.
There is something for everyone.
Drop-in sessions to start this week, with sign-up in place for a second workshop running from Monday August 28 until Friday September 1.
