A word from our Chief Executive

16 June 2021

We are delighted to welcome into the area a flurry of new businesses in the coming weeks and months. In Herne Hill, sustainable clothes retailer Lowie and furniture designer and workshop Unto This Last, remind us that classic design and consideration for the environment can go hand in hand.

In West Dulwich a café restaurant with onsite childcare, Peace and Riot, offers a new concept in family-friendly work and play. Read more here about what’s on offer. Later in the year we look forward to welcoming established seafood bar and kitchen Oystermen. Find out more about the offer from long-established Park Hall Road clothes shop Jaadu.

Bringing new vibrancy to the North end of Dulwich Village, Megan’s is a child and dog-friendly space offering Mediterranean brunch, lunch and dinners.

It will be joined by coffee shop and social enterprise Redemption Roasters, later in the year. And we speak to the owners of popular barbers Porters, about their history in the area.
We are also delighted to announce that a new charity, the London Youth Sports Trust, will operate from the Griffin Sports Ground later this year. The charity is a partnership between Lambeth Tigers Football Club, which works with many young people from communities with no access to good sports facilities, and Dulwich Cricket Club, which will use the Griffin to grow its women’s and girls’ teams. The Griffin will be the first cricket ground in the UK to give priority to women and girls, and Lambeth Tigers’ first permanent home ground.

We wish all these businesses, old and new, the very best and urge everyone as ever, to show support by shopping local where you can.
Simone Crofton, Chief Executive
