What have I missed since April 17th?

As people gorged themselves on chocolate and temperatures and referendum rhetoric soared, what was happening in West Hampstead?

Kilburn features prominently in this short film promoting the Yes to AV campaign.

It also features in this film that launches the South Kilburn Studios.

On Wednesday night two young men were stabbed on the West Hampstead/Kilburn borders, one fatally. Police have arrested a 17 year-old.

A Kilburn High Road shop  that’s had a few run-ins with the police has applied for a 24hr alcohol licence.

West Hampstead’s churches got some good pre-Easter press coverage – including mentions of their use of Twitter.

Remember the NW5 signpost cock-up? Well, it’s been rectified!

After a bad week on the Jubilee Line, this Easter’s closures should (*cough) be the last
of the planned engineering works.

West End Lane take-away the Bombay Bicycle Club has shut up shop and moved to Maida Vale. Pizza Hut is allegedly interested in the site. The Green Room in Broadhurst Gardens also appears to have closed (unless the owners are just on holiday). STOP PRESS: The Green Room has closed – it will become an Italian restaurant.

Sport
The two 5-a-side teams started the season with wins: 11-5 for the @WHampWanderers and 9-7 for @WhampAthletic.

West Hampstead’s men’s hockey team remain on course for the double after they won the
cup last weekend.

Coming up this week
The Glo sign was finally replaced by the Ladudu sign as the Vietnamese restaurant prepares for its soft launch this week.

Next Saturday, the Priory Tavern hosts a jazz and soul “Music in the Raw” event, starting at 7pm.

Tweet of the week
Tough one this week – three great contenders, but the winner was Kate with this heavily re-tweeted scatological offering:
