• Joanna Large, who joined the board last year, is a specialist nurse at King’s College Hospital but also has a background in arts and culture. She successfully launched our new Camberwell Talks events last month with a sell-out first event. Joanna says:
‘I started volunteering occasionally on the SE5 Forum market stall, then joined the Board last year. They backed my idea of having Camberwell Talks, which are now happening on the first Monday of the month at The Camberwell Arms. We’re now looking at how the community can use local empty shops and retail spaces. Even with a busy job and a family, I have been able to help the community through SE5 Forum.’
We are also looking to recruit more volunteers. Currently we would love to have board members and volunteers who can bring the following skills or expertise to SE5 Forum:
Transport: Expertise in rail planning process or bus policy/guidance
Environment: Experience in greening, urban planning, development/regeneration
Business: Planning, marketing, merchandising experience
