GNC: Two Sides of a Street

GNC: Two Sides of a Street

Raising funds for GNC

A real-life soap opera is unfolding in Cardross Street in Brackenbury Village. A Royal Ballet star, a man who owns a share in a racehorse and a peer’s daughter are living side by side with elderly residents who have rented their houses all their lives.

First broadcast in 1989, the BBC documentary Two Sides of a Street is a humorous, nostalgic glimpse into the lives of the Brackenbury Village community at the time. It was produced by John Pitman, a long-time local resident, who passed away last year. On 29 January 2019 Two Sides of a Street will be shown at Grove Neighbourhood Centre (GNC). There will be screenings at 4pm and 7pm and tickets are £10 (includes tea and cake at 4pm and glass of wine at 7pm). In addition, there will be 20% off bottled beer, house wine and food at The Andover Arms.

Tickets will be available from 17 December and they can be collected and paid for at the GNC. Sponsored by Horton and Garton, the evening promises a fascinating look back at the characters of Brackenbury Village and will raise funds to support GNC.

About Editor

Online editor at Keep Things Local


The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
