Te​n Lewisham borough claims to fame

I love the community spirit – free, fun events every week of the year, organised by people who love their home. The only place in London that has a dodgeball team, a Scrabble club and an Indian Orthodox Church.
Nick Barron, Brockley
I've lived in Ladywell for over 20 years and can't imagine anywhere else in London I'd want to live. Of course it's the people who make it what it is – relaxed, friendly, bohemian.
Robert Sheppard, Ladywell
