European elections: The candidates

Voters in London will elect 9 MEPs on May 22nd, who between them will represent the whole city.

Unlike other UK elections, in the European elections you vote for a party (or an independent candidate) and the party decides which candidates get any seats it wins based on a list system. For more about the voting system, read this.

No nonsense for Tom at Nona

A visit to Nona on Fairhazel Gardens seemed a decent idea, as it meant stopping off for drinks beforehand at The Arches, the most charming bar in the area and a venue of even more stature and importance since the closure of the much-missed La Brocca. And so, after a really excellent glass of Sauvignon […]

Expansion of the Farmers’ market; too much too soon?

London Farmers’ Markets has applied to Camden Council to expand the operating hours of the market that currently pops up on Iverson Road every Saturday.

Liddell Road school to open with spare capacity

Liddell Road has a new name. After much careful thought and consideration it has been renamed, wait for it…, “Liddell Place”.
