An evening with The Hummingbird's Nectar

An evening with The Hummingbird's Nectar

Inspired by their origins (Kem and Rebiye are Turkish Cypriot, and Tyron is Turkish-Caribbean) they wanted to bring a taste of the home cooking they grew up with, the food of their roots, to a wider audience. As Kem put it: “I realised that I had two chefs and no kitchen.” It was with this realisation that the 'Back To Our Roots' pop-up was born. Its West Indies inspired incarnation ‘The Hummbingbird's Nectar’ first came to Hither Green late last year and has proved hugely popular. It’s a definitively family affair...

13 Best Places For A Haircut In Lewisham Borough

13 Best Places For A Haircut In Lewisham Borough

Let it be known that haircuts are very important. Though their importance varies from person to person, there is little question that haircuts are always important. They're a key way in which we as individuals define ourselves and play an incredibly important role in how we are visually received by others. Really, a haircut should be what you like, what you want - not what every one else has, but it's difficult to argue against the power of wanting to look like your peers. For some people, the role of a haircut is quite complex - it's there to help you stand out, but not massively. It's a rather peculiar but essential balance. Anyway, having a hairdresser or barber that you trust and know is, by proxy, vitally important. You are a beautiful portrait that needs touching up now and then, and if you're happy with how it looked previously, you're not going to have some other artist touch your portrait are you? No, so if you're in need of a new artist in Lewisham Borough to trust your hair (portrait) with, then we've got you covered with our list of the 13 best places for a haircut in Lewisham Borough. We split it up into unisex, female, and male to make sure you don't go somewhere that can't help you.

All-Time South London XI!

All-Time South London XI!

We read a statistic last year that said, in 2016, 14% of English footballers in the Premier League were from South London. That got us thinking, who are the best players from South London? Then we thought, what if we were to assemble a team of the greatest players to come from the wondrous land of South London? South London being defined as any London Borough south of the River Thames. Now, for fairness, to define a player from South London, we thought we would include both players born in South London and players brought up in South London. So this means if a player was both in South London, they are from South London and if they were born away from South London, but brought up in South London, then they are also from South London. So there are players in this list who were born in South London, but brought up elsewhere, and also players born outside South London, but brought up here. We should stress that this is our XI, and you have every right to disagree with it. If you do, as is very likely, we would welcome your suggestions to players who should be included. Anyway, here it is, our all-time South London XI
