Art, architects and Scandinavians

On Friday we were walking past C99 - other place opposite Kensal Rise station and realised it was 'open' so went in. It's an art gallery currently showing a local Scandinavian artist Ylva Kunze - some amazing pieces. I was also interested by the building (open plan modern finish, floor to ceiling windows at the back), and the fact an architect firm operates from down stairs.

Still no sign of charity shop, Greene & co. or any change at the Diner. The parking bay outside Golden Tower Tesco's, is that a legit 'pop to the shops' parking spot?

PS. Currently battling spam influx, apologies if your comment takes a little while to get posted

Princess Frederica Expansion Meeting - Thursday 21/3

Plans are afoot at Princess Frederica school - See below

"Princess Frederica (College Road / Purves Road) is holding an informal consultation on the possibility of expanding the school from 2 form entry to 3 form entry, increasing each year intake by 30 students. In order to achieve this, major building work will be required for approximately 2 years, as well as road works to limit and/or redirect traffic near the school. It is a decision that not only affect parents with children at the school, but future parent/students, and the entire Kensal Rise area.

A Public Governing Body Meeting will take place this Thursday 21st March from 6.30pm. 

Please come along to listen to the discussion including representations summarising the views for and against expansion."

What's new?

Matt has kindly invited me to contribute to his blog - so, what's going on in Kensal Rise of recent?

Their Nibs has moved on, but the shop is being refitted - but what will it be?
Aubreys is going from strength to strength - try it if you haven't already. Aubreys is on station terrace behind Minkies.
So far no sign of Green and Co. next to Scarlet & Violet (yet another estate agent)
Nandos has been with us a while now, so is it good or bad for the Rise?

Anyone else notice the Overground train being particularly busy last week in the mornings?
