Preserves – Christine’s Creative Allsorts “I have jars full of late summer tastes – courgette and lemon marmalade, bread & butter pickle, plum jam, strawberry jam, piccalilli, beetroot chutney… to name a few. They can all be kept sealed for between 6 and 18 months, so you’ll be able to open a jar on a chilly January morning and be treated to the scents and tastes of summer. Or you can eat them all in one go now! Don’t forget to bring back your used Creative All Sorts jars for 50p off your next purchase.”

GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH SEEKS AMENDMENT TO PLANNING PERMISSION (BRICK BY BRICK…?)
The Greek Orthodox church (St Constantine and St Helen) have applied to Croydon council to amend the planning permission granted for a three-storey building comprising church hall with ancillary facilities at ground floor and four one bedroom flats on first and second floors (amendment to planning permission 13/04416/P) at 69 Westow Street (to the left of the White Hart pub building). Upper Norwood London SE19 3RW
The application seeks to change the facing brickwork from a Flemish Bond to a Stretcher Bond on all elevations; and to omit the blue feature brick to the side elevations.
The application states: “Setting out of the Flemish Bond would be difficult and extensive cutting of bricks would be required to accommodate window and door openings.
“Furthermore, the introduction of two different brick types to the side elevations will further complicate brickwork setting out.”
