St Stephen’s, Hampstead

A few pictures of St. Stephen’s Church in Hampstead, recently restored after 30 years of lying empty. It holds particular importance to me, mainly because it scared the shit out of me for much of my childhood, having gone to the primary school down the road. It was always dark and terrifying looking, and haunted me every time I passed it by, so it was really interesting hearing about its restoration.

Restored through fundraising by a local trust, the inside of the building is incredibly impressive. Far more so than the exterior suggests. If you’re in the area then I would definitely recommend having a look.

It’s currently used as a venue for events, but there are also open days every first and third Sunday.

One particular event that might be of interest is a talk on “Hampstead’s Hidden Rivers”, which is Wednesday 18th April at 6.30pm. Find more info here

Mayoral Elections: One month to go!

Only 4 weeks until the elections on May 3 and after this morning’s little incident, I’m hoping like everyone else it will end in a Battle Royale style fight to the death. Maybe.

Anyway, If you haven’t already, make sure you’re registered to vote by 18th April: http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk. Like or lump it, the Mayor of London has such a massive effect on how Londoners live that it’s bonkers not to be interested. Same goes for the London Assembly, who hold the Mayor to account.

You can also use Votematch to match your views to the candidate’s policies.
