Hi Everyone ,
Please help reach 2,000 signitures for a local crossing for kids disable people and locals to cross the road safely.
The issue is there needs to be a pedestrian crossing between Amies street off Latchmere Rd Battersea, London SW11 2JW to Sabine street it is an important part of the street pedestrians cross which include kids , adults and disabled people.
The cars right now do not have to stop till further up and that crossing is too far up the road to walk and walk back down - which cars go up and down and do not have to stop for pedestrians meaning you can wait 10 minutes or more with bags of food or kids for the road to be clear to cross it is very dangerous and must be addressed with a pedestrian crossing at this spot for locals to cross safely.
Please sign this petition
• Locals crossing safely.
• Kids and disabled people need ease of access crossing the road.
• Reduce waiting and danger of locals to cross road with traffic unsafely.
Thank you all for your support signing the petition
Bins on Putney Embankment are now being emptied four times a day, but litter continues to be a problem.

A blue cargo bike is now collecting waste along Putney High Street for local businesses, thanks to a partnership between Wandsworth Council and the London Waste and Recycling Board.
The Putney Pedals bike will take care of mixed recycling, paper, cardboard, food and general waste without the CO2 emissions or traffic obstruction of a rubbish lorry.
It will be manned by two cyclists to cover collection times up and down the high street.
The waste will be taken to a storage space nearby owned by the council and then the waste will be processed by commercial waste management company Paper Round.
The Putney Pedals scheme is expected to reduce air pollution in the area as only one vehicle will be needed to collect the waste from storage and increase the recycling rate.
Businesses will be helped by the flexible collection times thanks to the bike service making it easier to recycle as much of their waste as possible.
Positively Putney and the London Waste and Recycling Board are offering a subsidised collection to encourage businesses along the street to get involved with the scheme.
Positively Putney is a non-profit run by Putney businesses to support the area’s commercial side and working to involve businesses in the community.
Councillor Rory O’Broin said: “It is encouraging to see our local groups take action that will directly contribute to helping the wider borough reach its climate change goals.”
This scheme comes just months after the council won a bid for £56,000 to spend on other e-bikes which are being used by the parks police and several local charities and businesses.
O’Broin added: “Our parks police have been enjoying their new carbon-free transportation.”
Wandsworth Council is clearly confident e-bikes can help achieve the goal of carbon-neutrality by 2030 set out in the 2019 Climate Change Action Plan.
Addressing pollution is a significant concern for Wandsworth where air pollution went up during the lockdown.
But the current air pollution level is two which is low and meets the World Health Organisation standards, according to London Air.
Residents who own an electric vehicle will be able to power them up free of charge for a 24 hour period next week at hundreds of locations across Wandsworth.
The initiative is part of Clean Air Day on October 8. To mark the occasion leading EV charge company ubitricity is giving its customers a free charge. Any car plugged in to a ubitricity charging socket in the borough in the 24 hour period starting just after midnight on October 8 will not have to pay.
Clean Air Day is a national campaign that aims to raise awareness of air pollution and the risks it poses to health. Poor air quality can cause heart and lung disease, is linked to low birth weight and children’s lung development and may even contribute to mental health issues.
The council is committed to tackling air pollution and improving the borough’s air quality. Included as part of these efforts are steps to encourage residents to switch from diesel and petrol-powered vehicles to cleaner and greener electric versions.
To encourage people to make the switch, the council has embarked on an ambitious programme of fitting on-street charging sockets in partnership with ubitricity and Siemens. There are more than 550 EV charging points in the borough of Wandsworth – including just under 400 ubitricity ones.
This number was boosted last month with the completion of a project to install 167 sockets including every available and suitable lampost in two neighbourhoods in Battersea’s Shaftesbury ward and Putney’s Thamesfield ward.
By early next year another 140 lampost sockets are set to come on stream with further installations planned later in 2021. This will help the council meet its current target of delivering nearly 900 on-street charging points.
These two areas in Battersea and Putney were chosen because they will both be directly adjacent to an expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) which the current Mayor plans to deliver in 2021 - to include all areas within the north and south circular roads.
If the ULEZ is extended as currently proposed, all vehicles and motorcycles which enter the zone but don’t comply with its emission restrictions will have to pay £12.50 a day – but electric vehicles will be exempt.
Wandsworth residents are already streets ahead when it comes to embracing electric vehicle technology. The annual number of plug-in vehicles registered in the borough has grown from 252 in 2012 to 4,527 in 2019 – with numbers rising by more than ten per cent every three months.
This route towards emissions free motoring is also being embraced by the council, whose own fleet of cars, vans and lorries is gradually being replaced by electric versions. All will eventually go electric as suitable vehicles become available.
There are also EV choices available for those who don’t need to own a vehicle but want to enjoy occasional eco-friendly motoring.
The Zipcar Flex car club includes a proportion of EVs, offering a convenient and eco-friendly alternative to car ownership, providing electric vehicles to hire by the hour, day or longer periods. Wandsworth has the highest take-up rate of car club membership in the country with more than 31,000 registered members.
Transport spokesman John Locker said: “We welcome this initiative by ubitricity which will hopefully help to encourage residents thinking of buying a new car to seriously consider an electric one.
“The rapid growth in the number of charging points that we have overseen in Wandsworth in partnership with ubitricity and Siemens means that running an EV is now much more of a realistic choice for our residents. Fitting sockets to so many lamposts has helped make electric vehicle ownership a realistic prospect for our residents.
“We want to be pioneers in promoting more eco-friendly and emissions free forms of transport and part of that is doing what we can to help persuade people who do need their cars to ditch diesel and petrol and go electric.
“This is just one of the measures the council is putting in place to improve local air quality.”

Motorists are being warned to expect heavy traffic delays in Battersea, Nine Elms and surrounding areas for the next 17 weeks, after TFL plans to close Vauxhall Bridge for essential repairs.
The bridge closed on Sunday (August 9), and is not expected to reopen until November. Only pedestrians, cyclists and southbound buses will be allowed to access it.
There are concerns that works on other bridges, including Hammersmith and Wandsworth Bridge, have already caused traffic build ups.
Wandsworth’s transport spokesman Cllr John Locker said:
“It is disappointing that TfL will be closing this important river crossing with little advance warning and hardly any consultation.
“Of course it goes without saying that key infrastructure must be properly maintained, but the timing of this closure is not taking into account the works already underway at Wandsworth Bridge and the ongoing and seemingly intractable problem of getting Hammersmith Bridge reopened.
“The knock-on effects of this will likely be significant extra congestion across Battersea and Nine Elms, which will become more acute once schools reopen and more lockdown measures are eased.
“Even at this late stage it is not too late for TfL to have a rethink and wait until the surface works at Wandsworth Bridge are complete.”
However, Transport for London says that the work on the 166-year old steel bridge is critical, and will keep the capital moving.
The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability is holding a charity raffle to raise vital funds for people living with complex brain injury.
There are 6 amazing prizes to be won!
• House of Rugby Behind the Scenes (live podcast) for 4 with James Haskell, Alex Payne and Mike Tindall
• Bungee Jump voucher donated by Red Letter Days
• 1 hour family photography session including a 7”x5” print out worth £250 with Venture Studios Fulham

So, let's have a holly, jolly Christmas, it's the best time of the year!
Does anyone have a spare room or flatshare they want to rent for a min. of 3 months? To a very personable young man (son of good friend's of mine) who is staying with me. He's over from New Zealand and he wants to live and work in London. I don't have a spare room though so he's looking for a place other than my sofa. A very nice lad who i'd recommend to anyone.
His budget is 500/month
