What have I missed since June 24th?

Camden’s recycling policies change as of today. Read about the new system, and see where your waste goes.

The new Local Policing Model has also come into effect. West Hampstead has two contact points, each open for three hours a week.

Remember the fishtank in the O2 that was clogged up with algae? It’s clear again.

@secretwhamp took over the old Love Food Twitter account in advance of opening what we’re being led to believe will be a Mexican restaurant of some sort.

The Wet Fish Café celebrated its 10th birthday on Sunday.

The Golden Egg on Kilburn High Road is becoming the @EarlDerbyPub.

The amusement arcade next to Poundland on Kilburn High R oadhas won an apppeal to move to the unit north of the O2 shop on the corner of Quex Road.

The ever-excellent Kilburn History blog published two late-19th century tales of the effects of alcohol (in Kilburn).

Nibbana’s sign has fallen off even before it’s opened.

Do you think Fortune Green should become a conservation area?

West End Lane Books put up its six readers’ shelves.

The Act of Killing is @NxNW6’s Film of the Week. Full local cinema listings here

Kilburn Older Voices Exchange is holding a two-hour “film festival” on Thursday July 4th at Kingsgate Resource Centre, 208 Webheath. It will screen Older Voices – getting around Kilburn High Road, showing how local residents with disabilities navigate a busy high street, and a selection of films from KOVE’s archive.

In 2012, West Hampstead tube station was used 9.71m times, well up on 2011’s 8.32m (remember all those closures). West Hampstead Overground was used 2.88m times and Thameslink 2.78m times.

The rumour is that the small Shaketastic site opposite the Overground is going to become a barber shop.

Come along next Sunday (you can come before the Murray v Djokovic match) and say hello to West Hampstead Life at the Jester Festival.
