What have I missed since May 8th?

It was a week for hair: Vidal Sassoon, Rebekah Brooks and Roberto Mancini. But what had us scratching our heads in West Hampstead this week?

Camden refused permission for the proposed development of Gondar Gardens. The developers are likely to appeal, and their appeal for the first “teletubby” proposal, which was rejected last year, will be heard later this month.

I’ve been hearing mixed messages about the arrival of the butcher on West End Lane. It seems that at the very least it won’t be opening until later in the summer.

There were two bank robberies on Finchley Road, HOB salon was broken into and there was a rather bizarre incident at The Brondes Age.

You can now catch up on the local independent cinemas’ screenings every week.

Vivi Nails on Broadhurst Gardens has closed and the unit is up for rent.

Work has started on the tennis courts on Lymington Road where the girls school will be moving to for two years.

Cllr Sarah Hayward won the Camden Labour leadership election, and therefore leadership of the council.

Coming up
Friday: a free outdoor screening of “Breaking Away” on Fortune Green (weather permitting).
On May 21st, the Maida Vale tweet-up “elgingather” takes place for those of you over in that neck of the woods.

Tweet of the Week

    According to the Kilburn Times the "bizarre stabbing at The Brondes Age" that you mention was only a door being slammed on fingers. No knives to be seen here sir. Move along….

    • Fair enough – have amended the copy.

    The latest on the Brondesage attempted robbery. Victim recognised would be robber in hospital while both were having fingers fixed. Arrest of 28 year old made. Owner of bar not happy with police response.
