Earlier this spring, Women in film SE15 held a three day workshop over three weekends at The Green.
Tracey Francis, one of the founders of the group told us: “It was a fantastic collaborative experience. The attendees learnt a lot – including how to use Celtx – and came away with skills and hopefully the confidence to write a script. There were so many brilliant ideas that we hope the attendees take their ideas and writing further. There was definitely award-winning material in the room.
Thanks to Maxine for her energy and knowledge, and Sasha who is working on editing the material together to be screened at our event during the Peckham and Nunhead Film Festival 2018. “
‘Learnt a lot and only day one’ – Jacqui
‘I can’t believe how amazing that screenwriting workshop was, the amount of inspiration in just 2 days. What a space for us women to grow as we learn to tell our stories. Thank you! ‘ – Gabrielle
Women in Film SE15 is currently running a series of events at the cinema in Deptford, and will be screening here during the Peckham & Nunhead free film festival in September. If you would like to help out with the screening during the festival just email us so you can come along to one of the planning meetings.
The group was set up to discuss not only the representation of women in film but also inviting female directors who controlled the shots behind the camera to share this experience. They have a blog to pursue areas that we find interesting, to record the insights that occur around this topic and at times showcase films we have made.
On a Wednesday evening the aroma wafting over from next door at The Old Nun’s Head is just too irresistible. The pop-up kitchen each week is hosted by sisters Jess & Jo, AKA the Flygerians, AKA the Garden of Edun, serving up their Nigerian take on traditional British classics. These energetic ladies are also found hosting supper clubs at Studio@61 raising funds for local charities such as Little Village and the Westminster House Youth Club.
To whet the appetite, here is their recipe for their classic Cassava fries…
Or pop to the Old Nuns Head on Wednesdays 6-10pm (kids allowed til 8.30pm)

Naughty pot of cassava (one of our signature dishes)
What the hell is cassava I hear you ask? Cassava is a healthier vegan alternative to
chips and French fries. It’s a root vegetable grown in most tropical countries
especially in Africa. Nigeria is the world’s largest producer of cassava as the root
veg thrives in hot climates. In the UK it can be found at Asian and African food
markets, head down to Peckham high street to purchase this delicious melt in
your mouth, crispy-extra but soft-centre veg of deliciousness! You won’t regret it!
Author: The Flygerians
Recipe type: Starter / side dish
Serves : 3-4
What you will need
2-3 pounds of cassava
1 pinch of salt and 1 pinch of pepper ( add to taste)
Chopped spring onions – 2 full stems
Cooking oil ( enough to fill a mini deep fryer if you have one or enough to
fill a medium pot half way)
Sharp cutting/ peeling knife
1. Carefully cut off both end of your cassava and cut it long ways in half.
2. Make a shallow cut into the skin of your cassava and carefully make your
way through it to cut off the skin. ( like you would peel a potato- the old
3. Cut into chunky chip shapes, once it’s all cut rinse the cassava with some
warm water to remove any Cassava skin residue.
4. Place the cassava in a pot of warm or boiling water on the stove, enough to
cover the cassava.
5. Bring to boil and cook on a high heat till tender. Use a fork to check if its
boiled, it should be soft and you should be able to pierce the cassava the
whole way through.
6. Whilst the cassava is boiling put your oil in another pan or turn on your
deep fryer to heat up the oil.
7. Once your cassava is cooked drain the water and wait for the oil in your
separate pot/ fryer to be hot.
8. Dunk them in carefully and let them cook for 6-8 mins.
9. Remove them from the pot/ fryer into a serving dish or individual naughty
pots. (how we serve ours)
10. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste and ENJOY! Best served hot with
your choice of dip. We serve ours with a homemade crayfish and tomato

You may have already tried one of these delicious recipes from Banana Blossom, as shared in the Spring issue of The Nunhead Voice.
Local Chef, Ranjan, has had regular pop-ups at the Bussey Building in Peckham and is available to whip up private meals for 2 to 100 people.
Give these a try to start with…
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.
