North Laine Runner
Free news magazine of North Laine Community Association
THE April-May edition of our free bi-monthly news magazine, the North Laine Runner, highlights our new campaign to encourage green shoots all over North Laine with plants in pots, planters, boxes, barrels, hanging baskets and on plots of spare land.
We also have reports from officers and coordinators on our activities over the past year ready for our annual general meeting on Zoom
on April 20.
There's also a feature on the North Laine
shop owner who was responsible for bringing together the most formidable spy ring ever seen in Britain.
See our collection of photos from local people showing their scenes from lockdown and there are tributes to former chair Francis Clark-Lowes who has moved away from North Laine.
Find out smart ways to stay safe on the streets, take a look back at the life of a veteran former trader, and there's a personal view on the issue of
party houses and airbnbs.
See the brilliant cover design from Nikki Brown
and Mitch Egan's latest North Laine crossword.
Our team of street representatives and volunteers has been out delivering the Runner to every home and business in North Laine.
You can also find extra copies outside Raining Books at 28, Trafalgar Street and at Sainsbury's
in the New England quarter.
