The Pod, Episode 18, Adam Lanceley, Putney based musician

Adam Lanceley is Putney based musician who was told he would never walk or talk again... how wrong they were! We were delighted to film Adam in our drop-in studio "The Pod" recently (at a safe social distance of course!).

Successful Christmas Tree Collections in Wandsworth 2020

Over the past fortnight the council has collected around 130 tonnes of unwanted trees. These will all now be turned into compost, some of which can be used in the borough’s parks and open spaces. Most were picked up from front gardens - but many thousands also had to be removed from Wandsworth’s 440 miles of pavement after people dumped theirs on the street.
