    My excuse is that I rarely use the train in Hackney.

    I got that and I use them every day :oops:

    Mind you I guess either of us can ask Sue any transport related questions in future so we don't have to worry about it...

    I use a lot of the stations; Clapton mostly, but sometimes walk up to Rectory Road or back from there, and sometimes walk back from Hackney Downs, or Hackney Central.

    I do know where Rectory Road station is but I had no ideas about how many passengers use any of the stations.

    I was in Hackney central this afternoon and - guess what - Wally Herbert's kiosk is now a coffee place - like Hackney needs another!

    Not cheap either, £3 for a flat white and you can't even sit down but I suppose they have to charge that if the rents expensive.

    Technically Islington Borough, not Hackney but I saw a poster for this record in the tube station today - do you think he's pinched the idea from that hairdressing shop in Balls Pond Road - just at the Kingsland Road junction? :hmm: :D

    Sad news



    Spirit was one of the people who was robbed of his shop on Broadway Market by the council despite having built it up from a wreck over many years AND offering to buy it from them.

    The real insult to untold injury was that the people who took over his shop opened a poncy fish shop... I just couldn't believe how insensitive that was. Proper pained me. :(
