Pets Corner – Park Petiquette
23 June 2018 | 7:58 am

Summer seems finally to have arrived and as the mercury rises so do the numbers of visitors to our glorious public spaces. The majority of responsible dog owners make daily, even twice daily forays to the park come rain or shine and in colder months the range of park users is fewer. However, warmer weather brings out other visitors in force: families and picnickers, those wishing to sunbathe or play games with the kids, learner cyclists, skateboarders and even Nordic pole walkers.

The Last Word: Dr Christine Langhoff
22 June 2018 | 2:53 pm

Dr Christine Langhoff is a local resident, mum of two, clinical psychologist and director of Circle Psychology Partners and Dulwich Psychologist, a counselling and therapy service for children, adolescents, adults and couples. How long have you lived in the area? I have lived in Dulwich since 2008 when I started working as an assistant psychologist at the Maudsley. What brought you here? My first job in London. One of my friends had recommended Dulwich to me and he was quite right. We still love it. Even though commuting to various places during my doctorate was not always easy, we stuck it out. It is such a great place to live in now that we have children. I have also done away with the commuting by running my private practice in Dulwich. What do you most value about the area you live in? I love Dulwich Village as it doesn’t feel like we are living in the middle of a big city. Not only is it a wonderfully green place to live in but it is …
