Greening Phoenix Road

Phoenix Road runs through the middle of Somers Town, connecting Euston Station and Saint Pancras Station, and running past the Crick Institute.

It is commonly used by people walking between the two stations, and will probably get busier after the upgrades to Euston Station.

It is fair to say that some parts of the route could do with a makeover – but what should they do? Have your say!

Independent – End of the Line for King’s Cross?

In The Independent there is an article on the area between Grays Inn Road and King’s Cross Road, brought on by the plans to redevelop the site of the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital on Grays Inn Road, and also Belgrove House (across the road from King’s Cross Station).

This area has, until now, been a lot less affected by the redevelopment and gentrification that has happened in the rest of King’s Cross and Farringdon. The area’s quiet streets are well worth a stroll around.

Merry Christmas!

We would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas.

Although Christmas celebrations are a bit subdued this year, you can still go outside and enjoy the local Christmas lights wherever you are.

Like these for example in Granary Square, Kings Cross:

Also, if you can, please check up on those who may be celebrating Christmas alone this year. A quick phone call can go a long way.

There are also groups on social media for those who want a bit of online company. for example, on Twitter use #JoinIn on Christmas Day. This hashtag has been going every Christmas for 10 years (as an aside, it was originally started by comedian Sarah Millican).
