The government’s new rules on housing benefit start this month. Many families will have their housing benefit cut if they have too many bedrooms. Children aged under 10 must share a room and children of the same gender must share a room up to the age of 16. (The bedroom tax does not apply to pensioner households.)
The council has estimated over 400 families will be affected by this bedroom tax in the three Lambeth wards in the neighboourhood of Norwood (out of 3,000 affected families across the whole borough).

Every Tuesday morning, Lansdowne Evangelical Church, Lansdowne Hill SE27 0ER plays host to Rainbow Tots, a lovely group for children under 3 years with their parents.
Starting from 10am, free play runs for forty minutes or so before tea, drinks, biscuits and fruit are served. Then the fun really begins with a wonderful sing-along with Agnes and Rachel-Claire on the guitar!
After songs, children are invited to participate in crafts or, for the more adventurous , interact with small creatures from Rachel-Clare’s garden. Previous visitors have included worms, centipedes and earwigs!
Cost is £1.50 per adult (brilliant for mums or dads with more than one child) . The church is just behind West Norwood’s Sainsburys.
