What have I missed since October 24th?

It’s been a relatively quiet week in West Hampstead while you were carving pumpkins and dodging exploding toner cartridges.

The West Hampstead community Christmas market has been given the green light.
I got caught up in a CBBC candid camera style prank at The Wet Fish Café.
The fire brigade union strikes continue, with one planned for Nov 1st and one for Bonfire Night.
The next 24hr tube strike is due to start at 9pm on November 2nd.
Kilburn’s Tin Tabernacle is in need of help.
Some locals may have noticed Royal Mail trolleys on the street.
There was a Labour hold in the Kentish Town by-election, so no change to Camden council’s composition.
The Winch launched its new and improved website.
Update on the Thameslink station development.
A local community group donated final funds to charity as it closes.

Coming up
Fireworks at Roundwood Park on Nov 6th, meeting at West Hamsptead tube at 7pm (RSVP).

Carving of the week
Ok – it’s a butternut squash, not a pumpkin, but this effort from @mermayden‘s flatmate is fantastic.
