HEAR YE, HEAR YE! After a madcap summer of fundraising, we raised the funds to embark on a year-long feasibility study to create a new neighbourhood hub for the Elephant and Castle, see the campaign on Spacehive. Huzza! We had our first steering group meeting of local residents and stakeholders in early December, and will be gathering ideas, suggestions and concerns from our neighbourhood and beyond, before our first public event in February/March 2018. Watch this space: we launch the Castle Place website in the new year!

Lamlash Garden Association is now a thing! We are a community association/non-profit group that has been set up to deliver the Castle Place feasibility study, working alongside Hayles TRA while the study runs until October 2018.

Neighbourhood meetings are held at Siobhan Davies Dance Studio, 85 St Georges Road, London SE1 6ER.


Lamlash Garden would still be a rubbish looking street without the support of Hayles TRA. We are nosy neighbours – but very friendly, and we aim to make our area a lovely place for everyone. Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly meetings – we promise we don’t just discuss bin collections!

Please check back for new meeting dates for 2018 or see the noticeboards on Hayles Street and Lamlash Street (all meetings start at 7pm).
