Your Pie and Mash Shop Needs You!!
A big Thank you to all of you who emailed Southwark News to nominate us for a Blue Plaque Award. I am delighted to say that we are now in the running for the Blue Plaque and would really appreciate it if you would kindly vote for us once again so that we may achieve this wonderful honour. After serving the people of Southwark and afar for nearly 100 years wouldn’t it be just great to have this cast in stone on the front of our shop premises in our Centenary year! :)
I have attached herewith a copy of the voting guidelines (the area highlighted in yellow applies) and also a copy of the great article that Southwark News wrote about this back in March.

Congratulations you have done it!!Over 500 hundred 'likes' received for our Arments Harlem Shake video raising £250.00 for Guy's Evelina Childrens Hospital! A big thank you to all of you who 'liked', to Southwark News for helping spread the word and to our staff and family who got out of bed extra early to film the video and make it happen. Funds are being collected for the Guy's Evelina Childrens Hospital in our shop throughout the Easter Holidays for those of you wishing to make a donation :-)
The Arments Harlem Shake!!
A group of not so shy Arments staff, family and friends gathered to do the Harlem Shake in order to raise money for the Guys Evelina Childrens Hospital. Click here to see the video clip (it's also on youtube and facebook) For every ‘Like’ the video receives, Cheryl and Roy Arment will donate 50p up to a maximum of £250, to Guys Evelina Childrens Hospital. The idea was to join the current trend for the Harlem Shake and use our version to raise money for Guys Evelina Childrens Hospital.
We all had great fun doing it. Roy and I would like to thank everyone who got out of their beds extra early to make this happen, especially our fantastic staff who showed great enthusiasm from the moment the idea was conceived.

WALWORTH THROUGH TIME - A Second Selection
South London based authors Darren Lock and Mark Baxter have recently published a second volume on the subject of SE17 called - WALWORTH THROUGH TIME - A SECOND SELECTION 'Using an unusual collection of photographs of Walworth and its immediate surrounding area, the authors tell further stories on this fascinating part of South London. We take a peek at long lost cinemas, famous theatres, legendary local characters, war time bombing, a large urban park, the biggest nightclub in the world, a modern mosque, fondly remembered pubs and schools, local transport, often frequented shops and the ever rapidly arriving 'new builds. They travel outside SE17 to take a look at parts of the Old Kent Road, Kennington, the Elephant and Castle and Camberwell - but the heart of the book is still in Walworth. We will introduce you to a mixed bag of world famous names such as Bobby Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, Dexys Midnight Runners, R.Whites lemonade, Buddy Holly and David Beckham. So, plump up a cushion and take a journey to Walworth and beyond!'
The book will be launched at St Peters Church, Liverpool Grove on July 19th 2012 from 6.30 - 8.30pm Refreshments will be served The book will be available, in limited numbers at a special launch price, on the evening. Both authors are more than happy to sign copies. We do hope you will be able to join us St Peters Church Liverpool Grove London, Greater London SE17 2HH 020 7703 3139
Where is the best Pie and Mash shop in London? www.telegraph.co.uk/intheknow
Quote by journalist Andy Welch:
With queues outside most days before opening, Arments just off Walworth Road near Elephant And Castle has a formidable reputation, and having tasted their steak pie, mash, liquor, it's not hard to see why. The family-run restaurant sells around 1,800 pies on a Saturday alone and, having been a pillar of the local community since 1914, are about to have a nearby street named in their honour. Make sure you try one of their new fruit pies for dessert too.

National Pie Week – 3rd generation of South London Pie Makers to be honoured in a street name
L&Q and London Borough of Southwark celebrate PIE AND MASH family ARMENTS
Put it on the Map was a local history project funded by the Heritage Lottery, delivered by THE CREATION TRUST, a charity involved with the regeneration of The Aylesbury Estate. The project included researching the people, businesses and events that helped shaped Walworth. Their stories were captured in short films that local residents voted on. Arments were the clear winners in the public vote.
Developers L&Q who have delivered the first homes for the New Aylesbury were given the residents preferences for names and have processed:
ROFFO COURT, TOTTERS COURT
and we are delighted that ARMENTS in NATIONAL PIE week just 2 years off their centenary will have their own street or block when the next phase of the development is completed.
The Roffo family served Italian Ice Cream on the corner of East Street and Walworth Rd from the 1950’s to early 1980’s and Totters were the original Rag and Bone men selling recycled goods along Westmoreland rd.
Arments, currently run by Roy and Cheryl are the 3rd generation of the family to serve the secret recipe pies and eels. Arment's first Eel & Pie house was started in 1914, the year of the Great War, by Mrs Emily Louise Arment and her husband William Peter Arment when they purchased an eel & pie house at 386 Walworth Road, SE17 from the Evans family. The development will be ready with residents moving in by the businesses 100 year anniversary.
John Lumley Project manager at L&Q said “L&Q is committed to resident participation – involving local people in choosing the names of their new homes is just one way that we can show our commitment to the communities in which we work”
Charlotte Benstead Director of The Creation Trust said “It is so great to recognize the contribution to the area that this family has made for generations”
Cheryl and Roy Arment owners of Arments said ….” We are absolutely delighted and honoured to receive this recognition and would like to thank all our voters for making this possible. In the mean time, we will continue to serve the people of Southwark and afar with the very best Traditional Pie and Mash!”
