Zoe Jewell, founding editor
Zoe set up the original version of the Blog in 2010. She was born and raised in Brixton. The view from the top of Brockwell Park, swimming in the Rec, and jostling through the crowds on Brixton Road are some of her favourite Brixton things to do. She has seen a bit of the rest of the world though, having spent time living in Berlin and New York. Zoe has worked in television and has written for Time Out and The Guardian.

Tim Dickens, founding editor
Tim is a more recent immigrant to south London. He grew up by the Essex coast before moving into town in 2008 having lived briefly but happily in Italy and Switzerland.

Miss South, food editor
Arriving from Belfast in 2001, Miss South checked out the rest of Lambeth first before realising Brixton was best and settling here in 2005. Blogging alongside her brother at northsouthfood.com, she soon realised that there was more to say about food in Brixton than she could fit in one blog. She enjoys buying things she doesn’t recognise from the market and making meals from them. Her recipes have featured at the Londonist and the Observer. She tweets at @northsouthfood.
