Thank you to Ashley and Sifiso at the Roving Bantu, and your team, for your kind initiative during lockdown. The soup kitchen has found a new home and we will not be distributing four days a week as before, but just on a Wednesday. Thank you to Erica for working with us to put out fabulous cooked meals, plus Margaret at the Brixton Church for availing the space for us to hand out food. #Community
The Bicycle School Brixton
Four inspiring ladies who attended a lesson on Saturday. Much fun was had by all and everyone managed to get up and do some riding! Lots of energy. Well done!
It’s never too late to learn how to ride a bicycle! We teach adults and children to ride. We generally teach absolute novices, but can also assist you build your skills and confidence.
You make #BrixtonBeautiful
Over the years I have come to appreciate the fact that what makes certain neighborhoods attractive is not so clear cut. More often than not, however, fairly ordinary buildings that share a few common characteristics seem to be involved. This is the case in Brixton, Johannesburg, where I currently live and work. On my walks through the neighborhood I have started noticing certain houses which stand out to me and I started a series of paintings to document them for myself.

Reclaimers get their very own truck!
The African Reclaimers Organisation were the worthy recipients of this brand new truck from the People of Japan and UNIDO. The handover ceremony was held at the Brixton Kerk/Church and residents from Brixton were thanked for their participation and enthusiasm to work with reclaimers. #reclaimingthefuture
The pilot has been an overwhelming success in transforming relationships between reclaimers and the community. Prior to the official start of the pilot, 75% of reclaimers felt welcome in Brixton and 72% felt they were part of the community. Preliminary survey data indicates that these numbers are now approximately 95%!
Spencer the balancing brak of Brixton. #BrixtonBeautiful
