What have I missed since July 22nd?

The cucumber story refuses to die – and meant a quick appearance on the BBC London breakfast radio show.

The marketing suite for West Hampstead Square has opened and you can see the model of the development.

How hygienic are West Hampstead’s cafés, bars and restaurants?

So many hair salons, but so few get recommended. What gives?

Since the change in rubbish collection days, residents have been reporting lots of problems and missed collections. Camden is apparently working to resolve this and you can report missed collections here.

Camden residents can swim for free at Swiss Cottage this summer.

Secret Boutique, which was in the basement of LoveFood, is moving to 60 Fortune Green Road (where the florist used to be). It’s due to open in the next week or so.

Can Camden council take a leaf out of Whitehorse in the Yukon?

@WHampstead That’s right, people on WEL, just keep holding down your horns. That’s not irritating and will DEFINITELY make traffic move.

    I just took some food waste out to our brown bin to find it wasn't emptied last week and the food has putrefied and the bin is now maggot infested. Tried to report it on Camden's website but you can only do this if it's no more than one day after the missed collection, so if someone tries to empty it tomorrow they're in for a pleasant surprise!

      I didn't receive any communication from Camden Council about the change of collection days. The first I heard about it was here!

  • Councils need to be more involved in the communities and show s they care. Why are they not embracing the social media and communication with its residents. Let us feel loved. They can help bring peace and harmony . Everything else follows naturally.
