COVID: How the Elephant responded
The pandemic has been a tragedy for communities throughout Britain and beyond.
There have been tales of huge personal loss, sacrifice and hardship. But there have also been some incredible examples of communities pulling together and none more so than here in Elephant and Castle.
The tigers that came to town
Tigers, the new childcare centre at Elephant Park, had only been open for three weeks when lockdown began. Now they are open again and welcoming more children.
Oli: business as unusual
For decades, Oli Food Centre has been selling international food and drink to the people of Walworth. But when COVID hit – they suddenly found themselves busier than ever.
Lynnes: life after lockdown
Lynnes Electrical has been a much-loved Walworth stalwart for nearly 70 years. Now they’re reopening their doors to the public for the first time since March.
Doing business after lockdown
The Government lifted the lockdown for most high street businesses on 15 June provided they could operate safely.
For some, getting up and running again won’t be easy, despite the support that was on offer during lockdown. But help is available.
After COVID: Building for the future
For many industries, the world stood still during lockdown. This was certainly true for some of London’s biggest construction projects, including those in Elephant and Castle.
Since then, work has restarted but with strict COVID safety measures in place.
