Join the Dulwich Village Easter Egg Hunt

Dulwich Village Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Dulwich Village traders in partnership with The Dulwich Estate are hosting a unique and special Easter Egg Hunt from March 16-April 2. Shops throughout the Village will feature 30 beautiful eggs created by local artists. Each tells its own story about the area.

Spot the eggs and discover fascinating stories about Dulwich Village. Each egg has a local history theme and will be displayed in shops and restaurants in the Village. Children can hunt for the mystery egg which will hop from shop to shop over Easter. Post your sightings of the eggs to #thisisdulwichvillage and check out more Village news @thisisdulwichvillage.

The Old Dairy Health Centre opens on Croxted Road

The Rosendale Road Surgery has now moved to its new, purpose built premises at 19B Croxted Road
in Dulwich, SE21. Formerly a Unigate Dairy Site, it is now called The Old Dairy Health Centre, led by
Dr Rosemary Leonard, and is in full use. The £6.9m development by The Dulwich Estate comprises a four-storey mixed use development incorporating a doctor’s surgery with five consulting rooms and two treatment rooms, a pharmacy, three additional retail spaces, and nine apartments.

The Dulwich Estate’s architect Panter Hudspith and building contractor R. Durtnell & Sons Ltd have carried out the project to a high standard.

RIBA award-winning architects get green light for new Burbage Road home

Southwark Council has granted planning permission for 400sqm new family home on Burbage Road in Dulwich, designed by Burgess Architects for The Dulwich Estate. The contemporary home takes its cue from its Arts and Crafts style neighbours and revitalises a former brown-field site, currently occupied by lock-up garages and a disused access track - leaving a significant gap in one of the most important streets in the heart of leafy Dulwich.

RIBA award-winners Burgess Architects have developed an approach to the design which is both contemporary, but presents a facade that is closely in keeping with the style of the neighbouring buildings

Adrian Brace, director of property at The Dulwich Estate said: ‘The Dulwich Estate is committed to creating an outstanding living environment – respecting the past while creating places relevant to today. This exciting development is a great example of how high quality design can enhance the area. It takes account of environmental impacts and retains important architectural elements and trees that are unique to the houses and their history.

Improvements to Dulwich Village shops

Renovation works have started to 86 and 88 Dulwich Village (formerly McColl’s Newsagents and Shepherds Food). This is part of ongoing investment in the area and will improve the properties for both commercial tenants and customers. The work will finish in late spring and we hope to be able to confirm a new convenience store tenant by then. Refurbishment and renovation of 33 Dulwich Village is also due to commence early in 2018 and will complete in the summer.

Ms Crofton is a former Chief Executive of the Institute of Imagination and The Borough Market Trust.

“We are delighted to welcome Simone Crofton to the role. She brings an impressive mix of experience which will prove invaluable to the future of the organisation. We have no doubt she will serve our beneficiaries and the area well. We look forward to working with her as we move towards marking our 400th anniversary in 2019.”
