An update from Claire…
Heber School House Project
“Absolutely Dulwich” Nov 2013
In addition to myself helping to scrape off old wallpaper one Sunday morning along with some other faithful parents and friends of Heber School … Daisylets was one of the major sponsors of the refurbishment of the dilapidated caretaker’s cottage within the grounds of Heber Primary School.
The redevelopment of the School House has been an ambition of the Parents and Friends Group for some years and will provide dedicated space for small group work. It will be used by learning mentors during school hours, for afterschool clubs and lunchtime activities.
We set aside a percentage of our lettings fees for a year and were able to provide one of our contractors to decorate the entire schoolhouse inside. Much thanks goes to Eric from EPDec for his added time over and above our budget at the weekends to get it finished :o) (pictured here with myself, my two boys and Elaine Standish from Heber P&F with her son.

The school house was opened officially by the headmaster David Block on 7th February 2014 and is now in use.

Dulwich Piano Festival
It was my pleasure to present the Daisylets cup at the 2013 Dulwich Piano Festival held at Alleyns School, as part of the Dulwich Music Festival. The worthy winner was Alanna Crouch, and I have to say the standard by all was AMAZING.

Heber School Fun Run
This year we sponsored the T-shirts as usual but we also paid for the medals and a cup filled with sweets was given to the class that raised the most money for the school… well done to everyone that ran around Dulwich Park!
Goodrich School Fun Run

Well done all at Goodrich who ran around Peckham Rye in 2013!
Much fun was had handing out over 500 pink balloons on the day of the Festival Fair on Goose Green!
I was also invited to the private view (being a sponsor of the festival has it’s perks!) of 265 Lordship Lane, which was taken over and made an art installation in it’s own right, by the biggest names in street art for “Baroque the Streets Festival”, they also transformed the Dulwich area with public murals based on Baroque era Old master paintings in the Dulwich Picture Gallery. It was fantastic to see inside and all the different artist’s styles, the outside still remains covered almost year on and those mushrooms can still be spotted out and about on the tops of some shops along with some really brilliant street art.
