What have I missed since March 12th?

Mother’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, Rebekah Brooks arrested, and cricketing god Sachin Tendulkar finally scored his hundredth international century. Busy week beyond the West Hampstead borders. Was anything to exciting happening closer to home?

There was a public meeting about the proposed lengthy festival in Kilburn Grange park over the Olympics. There are some watered down proposals, but the details remain unclear.

I wrote a round up of the lively the parking debate from last week (more pay & display needed, or too much traffic already?).

The proposed housing development on the old Iverson Rd garden centre site was due to be given the yes/no decision by Camden on Thursday, but debates on other plans in the borough took so long, the decision has been deferred.

Do you know anyone who might be eligible for help with the switch to digital-only TV broadcasts?

Sea Lantern’s has decided to move from being a fish & chips place to a pizzeria. Odd.

Even 100 years ago “signal failure” was causing problems on the tube around here.

The West Hampstead breakfast blog turned its attention to Pumpkin Café on Fortune Green.

The old Benihana site by Swiss Cottage will become a Shisha Lounge.

Camden council leader Nash Ali resigned.

Coming up
Local boy and rising comedy star Sam Wong does his first gig at the Good Ship this Monday. A fiver on the door for four acts – come along and support Sam on his home turf!

Next Saturday, Sington Nursery on Broomsleigh Street, a charity and a Camden Community Nursery, is having a “Nearly New” fundraising sale of children’s clothes, toys, books, games etc (for newborns to 5 years old) from 10am-1pm.

Tweet of the Week

  • I think it's sad that so many people seem to think shisha is a harmless elegant and trendy pastime…

  • The timing of the shisha opening is not great given recent articles reporting that smoking a shisha pipe is like smokimg 100 cigarettes!
