Ross say “Here’s what we’ve got for you this weekend: Lets start with some hot smoked eel – I ran out last week and I hate to disappoint, so I’m bringing double this time to make sure. Same goes for the hot smoked quail (great for a little lunch) we trialled last time, there’ll be some more of that too. Of course there’ll be plenty of the smoked chicken and duck that has been going down really well, and we’ll be bringing along other classics like our unique recipe cold smoked salmon (refined and sublime, smoked over oak, beech and heather. It’s an everyday treat), smoked cheese, and London’s only smoked cashew butter (It’s definitely unusually weird and don’t let anyone who keeps coming back for more tell you otherwise).

RESEARCH FAMILY AND LOCAL HISTORY AT UPPER NORWOOD LIBRARY
THE NORWOOD SOCIETY are starting a fortnightly group in Upper Norwood library, participating in local and family research.
The informal group will use web-based and Upper Norwood Library resources to develop skills and share research.
The first meeting will be held in the library on Westow Hill (corner of Beardell Street) this Thursday 28th January from 10-12am in the Library. All are welcome.
LLOYDS BANK TO CLOSE
Lloyds bank on Westow Hill is to close its doors on Thursday April 14th.
The move – announced in a poster inside the bank – will mean the area has no bank or building society premises. The closure follows hot on the heels of Barclays shutting its Westow Hill branch last October.
