1. Kentish Town Road is Going Green

First, some news just in. Soho House Group have agreed to sponsor six planter/bike locks which will be manufactured by Kentish Town’s very own Front Yard Company. Designed and maintained by the folks at social enterprise Of Butterflies And Bees, in association with the Urban Gardening group of Transition Kentish Town, the stands will be positioned along Kentish Town Road and filled with a variety of beautiful wildflower plants and herbs.

Fancy getting involved? Debbie Bourne from Of Butterflies and Bees says: “This is just the start, we’re on a mission with the Urban Gardening group of Transition Kentish Town to green up the whole of our ‘hood. We invite readers to lend a hand either by coming along to help plant up the bike stands, or by suggesting a space along the High St, or somewhere else in NW5, where we could place more of these planters.”

    £1.35 your answer lies there. A quality product at the right temperature with pleasant service is not possible at that price. We need to start realising that food is to cheap. You’ll be complaining about the meat quality and extra ingredients used next.

    C’mon Andy, it’s Greggs – what were you expecting??

    I like cold pies. otherwise there’s a chance they might dry out a bit

    • beetee

      If they’re left in a hot cabinet too long

      • beetee

        Also if they’re too hot there’s the chance of scalding the roof of your mouth thus ruining the enjoyment of your bake/pie/pasty. long live cold pies!

    Why is this even published? A moan about a £1.35 “steak” pastry?

    What a ridiculous middle class pile of tosh.
    Firstly, could you not tell through the paper bag that it was cold?? Perhaps it was warm in the shop but after a 10 minute walk with it it had gone cold??
    But anyways, if you go to Greggs as much as you make out you’ll know they don’t sell “hot food”, they sell freshly baked food that is hot to start with and then cools off. If they intentionally kept it hot it’d be liable to VAT. Remember that hoo-ha in last year’s budget??
    Perhaps ask your office to buy a microwave??

    I wish my problems were as trivial as this.
