1959 | Racial tensions: Members of the White Defense League preach violence and hatred towards Black Immigrants at Trafalgar Square, London, on March 24, 1959. It was hardly news that not all whites viewed the country’s 165,000 or so non-white immigrants with unalloyed enthusiasm. It was ten years since the SS Empire Windrush had brought the first boatload of West Indians to Britain to work, and numbers had been steadily growing. Immigration was running at over 40,000 a year.
Name: Rhonda Drakeford Location: Hackney, East London Size: 500 square feet Years lived in: Rented for 1 year Living in a rental flat can be very limiting. You usually have to live with pretty bland walls and remodeling isn't really an option...unless you want to spend a lot of money upgrading someone else's house. So what can you actually do to a rental to make it a bit more Pinterest-worthy? Come and take a look at this one-bedroom flat in Hackney, East London.
I've spent part of the morning putting together a holiday calendar for the year, trying to marry up school holidays (there are so many!) with our annual leave. And I've come to two conclusions: 1. I need more holidays! (and my work is generous - how do working parents manage?). 2. I need more coffee if I'm going to wrestle with Excel spreadsheets. ☕️☕️ . . #londoncoffeeshops #eastlondon
