    Tufnell Park Parents and Green Party planning air quality monitoring 

    Air Quality Monitoring Sat 4th and Sun 26th March

    The TPP is working with the Green Party as a follow up to the original (and worrying) air quality survey of local routes to schools and nurseries. The NO2 monitors will be going up on Saturday March 4, with collection Sunday March 26th. It will be a group effort so if you can spare the time to help on either day (or both) please contact us. And let us know also if you would like to sponsor an additional monitoring tube for your street (£10 each). For those on busy roads it might also be interesting to monitor at both the back and the front of the building. For more information contact Roderik Gonggrijp rgonggrijp at hotmail.com

    Local baker looking for funding on kickstarter to start local sourdough bakery 


    The bread is delicious. I have to consciously stop myself eating the whole loaf as soon as I get it home.

      Forgot to say, there’s video on the website which explains what makes it so good

      The deals which include a number of loaves look like value for money – and it does look good stuff.

      Did you watch the video? He’s found a place for the bakery in Brecknock Road.

    GIGL if you like hedgehogs 

    Greenspace In Greater London (gigl)

    want sightings. Apparently they are making a come-back – although they are starting at rock bottom. London has 4 hedgehogs – 4 more than last year!

    New laptop from Very-PC Computers 

    I managed to utterly destroy my laptop in a fit of solar flares and bad luck. The battery had died, so I bought a new one and it wouldn’t charge properly – result being that the constant sudden power-downs killed the hard drive. While trying to find the corrupted Windows DLLs, I then discovered the DVD drive was dying too, and during an attempt to open and close the DVD drive, I then accidentally knocked a cup of tea over the keyboard.

    Game over.

    To replace it, I was torn between buying a waterproof laptop and a green laptop.

    Common sense prevailed. I vowed not to drink tea near computers, and ordered a new machine from Very PC who got awards in 2009 for building the most sustainable computers available in the UK and recently moved into BREEAM certified premises in Sheffield.

    I managed to keep my last laptop going for over 6 years. If I hadn’t killed it accidentally I probably would have got another year out of it. I’m aiming for the same life span for this next one.

    Slight downside: I won’t get it until Monday next week.

    Love Clean Streets app – nice work @IslingtonBC 

    Impressive stuff, wouldn’t it be great if everything worked like this: Clean Islington reports

    We need more people using this app!

    It also seems to work seamlessly with Haringey BC across the other side of Stroud Green Road.

      I have just had a look at the Clean Islington web(?)site which also uses this address: http://islington.mediaklik.com/reports I don’t know how much publicity this facility has been given, but the more people who know that they can report offensive material on our streets, and tripping dangers like potholes or loose pavings, on a ward by ward basis, the better. The reports can be viewed collectively ward by ward as they come in. Hillrise has no reports yet, is it possible that it is pristine? I think it more likely that residents have not realised that this is a nifty new reporting method, many thanks to Islington Council for setting it up.

    Meadow cutting at Talacre Gardens NW5 – #rurallondon :) 

    Just a pity it’s not at the weekend – I guess there’d be too much risk of scythe-related injuries to the general public.
