new cafe Muswell Hill

Eats shoots and leaves

new cafe Muswell HillJay Rayner is renowned for his carnivorous tendencies but a recent visit to Chris Kitch in Muswell Hill saw his views on salad vigorously challenged. His glowing review in the Observer magazine had everyone jumping up and down with glee. Praises were sung as food was devoured and whilst there was a niggle over a dry cake, in the grand scheme of things it was nothing to get upset about. As Jay concluded “…come for the glorious salads. And if you’re surprised to see me write that, it’s nothing compared to how I’m feeling.”

London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy LogoInternational stand-up comic and TV presenter Adam Hills, star of C4’s The Last Leg, was in Muswell Hill Broadway on Monday 10 February. Surrounded by young pupils from The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy, Adam cut a ribbon and officially declared the charity’s fifth shop open. He said ‘It’s an honour to contribute to the amazing work done by the LCCCP. I now call on all local celebrities to come in and donate an autographed item of clothing.’ Adam spent time chatting with the children, their parents and staff before donating a tie and an autographed pair of trainers for sale in the shop. He then accompanied pupils back to the centre for a guided tour.

‘It was really exciting to have Adam come and meet the kids and witness all the fantastic work that takes place here.’ said Natasha Byrne, mum of Flynn, 8, a pupil at the school. ‘Adam’s support is invaluable. We are very grateful to him! Today has raised the profile of our centre and school in a big way. This will ensure our charity can continue to provide Conductive Education for disabled children and change their lives positively.’

The shop at 112 Muswell Hill Broadway, London N10 3RU opened for business on Monday 17 February ‘We are immensely grateful that Adam took time out from his busy schedule to come here.’ said Marc Crank, CEO. ‘It gives us a fantastic opportunity to generate awareness about our life-changing work.’
