What have you missed since October 31st?

It was Remembrance Sunday, so we looked back at some local West Hampstead soldiers who died in WW1.

The newly refurbished Emmanuel Church is offering a warm welcome to some of Camden’s homeless once a week.

We were really excited about this tiny art exhibition on Mill Lane, but it was case of blink and you missed it. And you had to look really closely to find it at all.

Staying on Mill Lane for the latest of our Insights into local businesses. We met up with Jennie from the Kitchen Table. Find out how love blossomed (alcohol is involved)

But maybe she stayed too long admiring the ‘fading autumn light’ because her next tweet was this! Don’t worry she made it out.

Bonfire night saw a serious fire on the Rowley Way estate. Sixty firefighters tackled it and the next day things looked bleak.

Our friends at West End Lane Books were the victims of a reach-over and grab from the till robbery.

There was an NDF/Camden workshop on possible redevelopment/ masterplanning of the O2 centre carpark. Good turnout and some interesting thoughts. Early days though.

More NDF news. James Earl, the chair, is stepping down as he is moving away from West Hampstead. We’re not sure if planning policy allows that.

The deadline for commenting on 156 West End Lane closed this week on Camden’s website, but can still be sent in.

STB blocks has arranged a meeting about it, although sources tell us top-billed Tulip Siddiq MP probably won’t make it there until late, if at all, as she has her day job to attend to.

Tulip was only offered an out-of-date vaccine for her daughter despite living in a high-risk area for TB. Lots of other West Hampstead mums couldn’t even get that due to a vaccine shortage.

A dodgy temporary wall outside Iverson Road cottages seems to break pretty much every health and safety rule.

The air quality in West Hampstead is being measured over the next few weeks. Cough, cough.

Remember the shisha bar near Fortune Green? After being empty for months the building contractors next door are moving their office, to the relief of local residents.

Brooksby the wine merchant closed and will be replaced by … Tannin and Oak, another wine merchant, which will offer wine tastings and courses.

Someone is moving in to the old Colour Division premises, a totally different type of business. More details when we get confirmation.

If we say so ourselves there was a good Whampdinner at Sarracino. The evening started at The Railway Tavern and ended up, past midnight in the Gallery (on a week night)!
