North Laine Runner
Free news magazine of North Laine Community Association
The June-July edition of our free bi-monthly news magazine, the North Laine Runner reports on the way North Laine Community association has responded to the coronavirus health emergency.
You'll also find news about how the business community is preparing for the relaxation of lockdown rules allowing many smaller shops to reopen after almost three months' closure.
We explain how our Helping Hands group
has worked hard to help people who have been self-isolating and needed help with food shopping, dog walking and hearing a friendly voice.
There are pictures from – and links to - NLCA's two Home from Home videos, compiled during the lockdown, with local talent performing everything from music and magic to comedy and cookery.
News pages include a debate on whether this is the right time to make shopping streets traffic free, how our anti-tagging work is going, and a tribute to those shops which have kept us supplied with food during the emergency.
Find out about the origins of Infinity Foods 50 years ago, a fashion show based on the 75th anniversary of VE Day, marking the end of the Second World War in Europe, a report on how we lived in North Laine in 1900, and a fresh
look in pictures at the architecture in our neighbouring New England Quarter.
Our brilliant team of street representatives and volunteers has been out to deliver the Runner to every home and business in North Laine. Thanks to them all. You can also find copies outside Raining Books at 28, Trafalgar Street.
