What have I missed since October 31st?

Freaks and fools and ghosts and ghouls, but no decent fireworks display in West Hampstead this week. So what did we get up to instead?

On Wednesday, initial proposals to develop the Iverson Road garden centre site were presented to an unimpressed audience. A block of thirty-eight flats and some strange architecture apparently didn’t win people over.

On Saturday, the amended proposals for 187-199 West End Lane were put on display. Eleven storeys anyone?

A meeting on Monday discussed the merits of setting up a Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Swiss Cottage Area Action group raised all mannner of hot topics.

Cllr Mike Katz wrote a piece on Community Cohesion in Kilburn.

Hellenic Restaurant on Finchley Road is set to become an “Art Gallery Kitchen” (no, I don’t know either).

Whampreview at Spiga was a great success.

Thameslink trains are losing some first class seats.

Spice 212 is becoming a branch of Sew – hopefully better at sewing than spelling.

A couple got engaged in spectacular fashion on the Overground as it came into South Hampstead station

Scampa (formerly Romeo’s and Maya) is now to become Rouge Lounge.

Costello’s finally opened – no-one on Twitter seems to have been yet though!

Coming up
Meeting on Wednesday to discuss the 187-199 WEL development.
Jazz at La Brocca on Thursday.

Tweet of the Week
Halloween and Bonfire Night meant stiff competition for this weeks’ ToTW… but this one made me laugh more than most
