JUNE in 2019 MYLONDON calendar THAMES BEACH, SOUTHWARK Paul McGrail, took this shot of a beach on the south bank of the Thames between the National and Globe Theatres. “As I was walking along I noticed the people. It was almost like a coastal beach in the sense that people were making sand castles. In a way it’s a shame the river is not used more for that purpose.” Paul used to go to Crisis regularly and now spends most of his time in a “house of hospitality” in Finsbury Park. “This community house 20 asylum seekers. People who are waiting for a decision by the Home Office whether or not they can stay or not… They’re not allowed to work. They’re not allowed to sign on. We have a church that’s been given to us plus a house.”
