There's news revealing that many traders want pedestrianisation of shopping streets, that feeling is running high about graffiti in Trafalgar Lane, and how Bob Dylan once had
three books published in North Laine.
Find out who's who at the Saturday morning Upper Gardner Street market and try our spot the difference quiz, learn how to keep fit and stay calm during the health emergency and read about memories of the UK's last surviving retail cork shop, in Gardner Street.
We look back at how an incredible scheme to disrupt a blackshirt fascist rally succeeded at the Dome in 1934, and the sad demise of the formerly magnificent Drill Hall built in 1890 at the top of Church Street.
All this plus more news, your letters, reports
