Not sure whether you heard about this, but there was some rioting and a lot of looting on the streets of England this week. There may have been other news in places like… ooh, I don’t know, Syria and East Africa, for example. But mostly the news was about stolen PS3s and a “visible police presence”. But what happened in and around West Hampstead this week?
Away from the riots and general tension, there was other news. The Jewish Community Centre on Finchley Road is starting to take shape.
There was a “Brooms and Lollipops Protest” planned for Saturday in Kilburn.
An inquest heard how a West Hampstead man fell to his death from a flat window.
There was a car accident outside The Priory Tavern on Sunday evening. No-one was hurt.
The horses from St John’s Wood barracks caused some disruption on West End Lane.
Mill Lane store Dass has started Sunday morning bread/pain au chocolat deliveries.
Tweet of the Week
Almost impossible to choose this week, especially given the volume of tweets on Monday and Tuesday. In the end I liked this one from SJ, sent on Tuesday around the time I think we all realised we would probably have a calmer night than many had feared.
