ST JOHN’S CHURCH IS FALLING DOWN, FALLING DOWN….
From Crystal Palace Food Market:
Help stop St John’s Church from falling down: Clare says “St John’s church on Auckland Road urgently needs funds to underpin its south side. It has received Heritage Lottery funding which needs to be matched with £29,000 from the community by the end of October.
A group of parishioners and Transition-Towners are cycling 270 miles along the south coast in August to raise £10,000.
“They are almost halfway to reaching their target but need your help to get there. Please sponsor us and help preserve this church – and Crystal Palace Transition Town’s meadow garden – for future generations.”
The Pedalling PIlgrims:
Seven hardy Pilgrims will be setting off on their bikes from the front of St John’s Church (corner of Auckland Road and Sylvan Road) at 7.30am on Saturday 22 August.
Over the course of four days they will cycle from Upper Norwood to Chichester, then to Brighton, Hastings, Canterbury and back to Upper Norwood.
Sponsorship money will be split equally between CANCER RESEARCH UK and St John’s, so that our church can support those in need. We are aiming to raise £10,000 so that both charities can benefit from our soreness and chafing.
Event date: 22 August 2015 12:00 – 26 August 2015 18:00

eBOOKS AND eAUDIOBOOKS COMING TO SOUTHWARK LIBRARIES
Southwark library members can now download and borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks for free, 24/7 through a “simple” app that makes it easy to enjoy their favourite titles on their preferred devices.
The council say there’s an extensive collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks with titles for adults, children and young people, featuring bestsellers, prize winners and classics.
Southwark’s deputy leader and cabinet member for business, employment and culture Cllr Ian Wingfield says: “Southwark libraries’ launch of the eBooks and eAudiobooks service is a great way for people to have 24/7 access to books and get lost in a story whenever they want.
“Whether you choose to read or listen along, books are wonderful so why not explore our collection, “I’m sure you’ll definitely find plenty of titles to enjoy.”
eBooks and eAudiobooks will be available for free for library member to borrow, renew and reserve, and there are no overdue fines to worry about.
Users will be able to read or listen at any time on their smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac. Visit www.southwark.gov.uk/ebooks to access the service. If you’re not a Southwark library member, you can register using our online membership formwww.southwark.gov.uk/joinlibrary
opens tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon on Westow Street in the former Jay Michaels hairdressers.
Their website says: “We love fermentation. The Aztecs also revered the process and worshipped both a goddess of alcohol and a god that discovered fermentation. “According to Aztec folklore these two got it together one night and created many offspring known as the 400 rabbit gods or Centzon Totochtin.
“These rabbit gods lived the good life, constantly going to parties and getting into mischief, alcohol was involved more often than not.
“At Four Hundred Rabbits we celebrate fermentation and two of the best things it has given us, pizza and beer. “We think eating and drinking with friends and family should always be fun, and about good times. much like the 400 rabbit gods did.”
