Three local markets - Ally Pally and Muswell Hill

Last week Christmas shopping really kicked off with three local markets pretty much back-to-back. The first sale took place in Clyde Road, where there was a good mix of ceramics, plants, homewares and toys on offer plus free coffee and cake. This was followed by a weekend craft sale at the Pavilion, and then the Muswell Hill Creatives market in St James's Square. My visit to this last market was curtailed when my burglar alarm went off and I only had a chance to buy one thing before…

Please come and join us for this year's Remembrance Sunday Service. The service will be conducted by the Revd. Tony Pybus of St Andrew's Church, N10.

Each year, more and more people have attended this, so it would be great to see an even bigger turnout this year!

Our MP, Catherine West will be there as well as local ward councillors.

Time: 3pm

Venue: St Saviours Court, Alexandra Park Road N22

I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
