What have I missed since March 18th?

There have been 150 collisions on Kilburn High Road in the past three years, so what’s being done about it?

There was a collision on Fortune Green Road by the junction with Mill Lane when a driver who appeared to witnesses to be drunk apparently drove into some parked cars. No-one was injured and people on the scene say the driver tried to run away.

Around 100 people turned up to hear the West Hampstead Medical Centre’s updates on changes to the admission system and other changes to practice management.

Aldi’s new branch on Kilburn High Road has applied for an alcohol licence starting at 7am. Not everyone’s enamoured of the idea.

This Saturday there’s a London Walks guided walk of West Hampstead, it starts at 2.30pm from the tube station and ends up (as so many of us do) in the cemetery. It’s £9 for adults.

Whampgather is this Thursday. It’s sold out, but if you’d like to come and haven’t got a ticket then keep your eyes peeled on Wednesday and Thursday as there may be late-availability tickets, depending on cancellations. If you are coming, see you at The Alliance!

Health food store Peppercorns reopens on Tuesday at 260 West End Lane with 10% off everything for the first two days.

The Thameslink station was commended in the Civic Trust Awards.

The Wet Fish Cafe is getting a little frustrated with no-shows (and I know one or two other restaurants have been saying the same).

Compliance is NxNW6’s film of the week. Full listings here (and don’t forget #nw6filmclub on April 7).

If you’ve got a spare £29 knocking around and you want a hug, then there’s a cuddle workshop (yes, really) in West Hampstead in late April.

Coming up
28th: Whampgather XI
5th: West Hampstead SNT drop-in surgery, SNT base West End Lane
7th: NW6 Film Club, Tricycle, film tbd
22nd: WH & FG NDF meeting 7.30pm St James’ Church

Tweet(s) of the Week
Couldn’t decide between these two, so it’s a tie this week:

I see Uranus on kilburn high road has changed its name to Oranos, probably for the best…

Apparently a woman is giving birth at Willesden Junction Overground station. What a way to be welcomed into the world.
