Keeping It Local:

Some businesses and even some private homes have already been decked with fairy lights, trees and tinsel, but next weekend, the first in December marks the kick-off for festive fun and retail.

If, like me, your idea of hell is a crowded shopping centre or overheated department store there are artists’ studios in both Camberwell, SE5, and Walworth, SE17, open next weekend. And I’m sorry to tell you you’ve missed it, but today there was a sale of locally produced honey at Lettsom Gardens with the best lucky dip ever – everyone was a winner.

Back to next weekend. On Saturday I’m leading a guided walk around Walworth, my home patch.

The walk begins outside Kennington tube at 10.45, and ends outside opposite the Open Studios outside a café where dogs are welcome. It costs just £10pp and there’s no need to book in advance.

Our local beekeeper Barnaby will be there selling honey from his base in neighbouring Kennington Park, and I’m hoping his partner Tracey will be bringing their new rescue dog Casey along too.

I may have a cat calendar or two for sale if they haven’t all been snapped up already, and you’ll be able to buy gifts that are not available on every high street.

Snaps all round.
