Library closure

I've not really got involved in this as others are doing a determined job, but interesting article in AFP about the campaign etc.

Little Picassos

So we thought we'd go to 8 Station Terrace for lunch and were surprised to find it wasn't there any more, and something called Little Picassos was instead (but not open).

When did 8ST close? Admittedly it could have been months ago, as we've not been out tor restaurants much recently!!

I think it's a shame, 8ST was the one sort of thing we definitely don't have in KR.

Helen Wood likes Brook's

I don't know who this actress is, but a few Queen's Park/Kensal Rise references in this interview.

The Shop & pubs

With a small one now in tow we don't go out much, especially on Saturday evenings. So we took the opportunity of grandma in town to try out The Shop. We had two cocktails, and they were very nice and not too expensive. It looks good in there. Obviously aimed a young crowd with loud music (the horror) but the staff seems friendly and we had a good time.

We then mean to go tot the Chamberlayne, but had to abandon that as it was too busy. And this is now a problem with the Greyhound shut, there is only really one 'pub' in Kensal Rise, with the others quite a way south (the Island is quite near I guess)

Also, there seemed to be (was on the bus so didn't have a good look) something selling clothes, perhaps a charity shop, on Chamberlayne Road towards Kilburn Lane.
