Coincidentally (or perhaps not) before seeing _Bee’s post this evening I walked past Pizzeria Pappagone and thought ‘that outside eating area is a foot wider than it used to be’. I’m sure it’s grown and I do wonder if it's within the licensing regul…
More broken Britain madness. Yes, there will be a massive increase in dumping and fly tipping, piles of garden waste left in the street, furniture and old fridges abandoned on corners.
Also, I’m going out right away to paint my house number on our…
This is very noticeable. It’s shaming all round - this part of town is becoming like a back street slum in some low-rent third world capital.
I dont understand why these people hang out here in wet and filthy conditions, instead of taking up a plac…
Will this work at 4am? Around our part of the parish we have one particular family of anti-social idiots who occasionally like to walk their dogs and loudly yell abuse at each other under our window in the small hours - sometimes for hours at a tim…

Just passed The Steam Train on Perth Road. Lots of hedges on that street and there was a man cutting his privet, I suggested he do something different.
There is another elephant and a caterpillar (I think) on Victoria Rd.

I assume this social function has been pruned back and added to the bonfire of regulations create…

Er..... Stroud Green Festival and Stroud Green Day events have been mentioned several times on this site, also in the Made in Stroud Green magazine, nobody seems to have taken much notice. It's happening around you guys.
Jon, the real pub landlord, has now decided he's up for it.
It's going to go down a storm. We have signed up local supergroup the Japan Crescent Pluckers to lead a reprise of the Song, the nominations are rolling in, and there will be an appearan…
