What have I missed since September 9th?

Waitrose submitted its full planning applications, covering delivery arrangements and noise impact. All summarised neatly here.

There’s some confusion over the fate of the trees adjacent to the West Hampstead Square site, while it looks like those on the site will indeed be felled.

The fly tipping at Minster Road is getting worse. We’re still waiting for Camden to propose a more structured solution than responding to residents’ complaints.

A map showing how London had evolved socio-economically over the past 10 years revealed that West Hampstead had more or less remained the same.

There was a break-in at Feng Sushi – apparently all that was taken was five bottles of cheap wine. There were also some attempted and actual burglaries around Maygrove and Loveridge Roads.

We met Maygrove Road’s very own Tom & Jerry.

Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff has apparently moved to West Hampstead.

This Monday, Locally Sourced hosts “A Conversation with Morris Beckman“, a founder of the 43 Group – an anti-fascist group set up by Jewish ex-servicemen. It’s at Brioche, starts at 7.30pm and is free.

The majority of the new students moved into their Blackburn Road accommodation.

Various parts of West Hampstead lost water intermittently during the week. Unless Thames Water can be persuaded to bring forward its pipe-replacement programme for the area, this will keep on happening.

Rush is @NxNW6‘s Film of the Week. Check out all the new releases and full local listings.

Zadie Smith’s NW is resolutely set (confined?) to north-west London… but is it a book more of its time than its place?

In their final match of the year, league winners Hampstead took on an all-star celebrity cricket team (including current and former England players) in the drizzle and won a last-ball thriller.

A drain cover exploded outside The Alice House on Wednesday. Firemen were quickly on the scene.

Starbucks was evacuated on Saturday after smoke was spotted coming from the front. The fire brigade was also called to an incident on Dennington Park Road on Saturday at about the same time.

The long-running debate about fire station closures lurched on, with another nail in the coffin for Belsize station. West Hampstead station, which held its open day on Sunday, is not under imminent threat of closure.

The Sherriff Centre – the organisation that will run the post office in St James’ church along with other social enterprise operations – may also host a credit union. The contract with the Post Office has now been signed so it’s all systems go.

St James’ Church will host a small film season around Halloween, kicking off with Hellraiser on All Hallow’s Eve itself.

A guy attempting to visit every Nando’s in the world ticked the West Hampstead branch off his list.

A member of the Baader-Meinhof gang was arrested in West Hampstead 35 years ago this Sunday.

I don’t like using the C-word at this time of year, but the West Hamsptead Business Association Christmas Market will be held on Nov 30th from 10-4 on West End Green. There are a limited number of stalls available, which are are primarily for local traders and crafts. For more information on stalls, or if you would like to volunteer on the day please e- mail moc.l1511495952iamg@1511495952tekra1511495952msamx1511495952daets1511495952pmaht1511495952sew1511495952.
