Jay Rayner Loves Nandine

The lovely people at Nandine's café in Vestry Road have done what we all hoped they would and opened a restaurant in Church St. Jay Rayner for one is impressed. His review in yesterday's Observer was unreservedly positive, read it here.

"Like everything here, first you look at it and sigh, Then you taste it, and sigh again."

Check it out: Nandine, 45 Camberwell Church St, SE5 8TR.

We Did It!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen, but let's not stop there, the more that we can raise the more we can do to put Camberwell forward as the place. So keep going with donations and let's try to do Church St too, we have until Aug 12th. Time to get busy!

Designs for the banners will be worked up following finalisation of the new Camberwell brand graphics. Do come to the Camberwell Fair on the green on Saturday 31st August and visit the stall of our friends the SE5 Forum where you will be able to see and comment on the draft branding.

Banners will be manufactured and then installed in November. Contributors can expect to see copies of the new Camberwell Travel Guide arriving in their inboxes at around the same time.

Well done Camberwell.
