NEWHAM PUBS: Over half of borough’s watering holes have closed

London – VIJAY SHAH via ELLENA CRUSE and Newham Recorder

In a trend replicated across much of the United Kingdom, large numbers of public houses, licenced establishments selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. have closed down in the east London borough of Newham, according to figures published in an article from local newspaper, the Newham Recorder. Figures made available by the Inter-Departmental Business Register, a central government database of businesses, state that between the years 2001 to 2017, fifty-two per cent of the borough’s pubs have closed down, leading to a decline in community activities and the appearance of homogenised high streets.

 

Seventeen years ago, Newham had 105 pubs operating within its territory. As of last year, this number has shrunk down to only fifty, the second highest decline in London, and a development which has troubled the London mayor, Sadiq Khan. Mayor Khan urged central and local governments, including borough councils, and the pub industry to get together to stop the ongoing decline in pubs, many of which have been forced out of business by rising rents and business taxes, alongside a change in consumer drinking habits and the increasing cost of drinking and eating out at pubs. A nationwide smoking ban introduced in 2007 has also been blamed by many in the industry

The Mayor told the Recorder: “The traditional London pub has been at the heart of London’s communities for hundreds of years, but sadly they continue to face a long-term decline in numbers,’

‘As mayor, I have made safeguarding and growing London’s night-time economy a priority and am doing all I can to protect the capital’s iconic pubs.’

‘By creating the most pro-pub planning strategy the capital has ever seen I’ve shown what can be done, and I want to see the government and local authorities match my ambition and help protect these key community hubs for generations to come.”

Many closed-down public houses are converted to other business uses, or increasingly thanks to the city’s housing crisis and rising land prices, demolished to make way for flats or office complexes.

Geoff Strawbridge, the Greater London regional director for the drinking association the Campaign for Real Ale, added: “Camra branches would like to see all London boroughs adopting robust pub protection policies in their strategic plans and enforcing them in their planning decisions.

‘The mayor’s draft London Plan highlights the importance of London’s pubs as part of our heritage and culture and we commend the efforts of his team in reinforcing his message.”

Across all of London during the year 2017, pub numbers declined by around 2.4 per cent, according to the data sets published by the Inter-Departmental Business Register.

IKEA-N’T BELIEVE IT!: English fans criticised for invading IKEA store after football victory

London – VIJAY SHAH via WIL JONES, Joe and other sources

While yesterday’s 2-0 win by England over Sweden in Samara for the World Cup 2018 was a perfect example of largely orderly and civil sportsmanship, a group of the England team’s supporters have come in for heavy criticism for behaving quite the opposite, after they invaded an IKEA store in London and partied in a show bedroom, with several men jumping on a double bed meant for display to customers visiting the Swedish-owned homeware and furniture store.

 

In videos that has gone viral on social media, a group of half-naked men, swigging beer and in an exuberant mood after the victory that advanced England to the quarter-finals, can be seen converging just inside the entrance of an IKEA store in the Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford, London.  Chanting the football song “It’s Coming Home”, the men, largely in their twenties and thirties, are shown jumping up and down on the bed, while throwing around cushions and other items on display. In one clip a member of staff pleads with one of the fans to get down from the bed, while another, behind a till, shakes her head in disbelief.

While many on social media expressed surprise at the impromptu celebration-turned-vandalism/store invasion, others have condemned the fans in the IKEA store. One called for them to be named and shamed, and their identities turned over to IKEA and the city’s Metropolitan Police for civil damages and prosecution. They were also accused of bringing both England and football into disrepute and exhibiting hooligan-like behaviour. A small number of commentators however said that the men were merely having fun and that the negative reaction was overkill.

As of the time of publishing, IKEA’s UK retail division appeared to take the incident in their stride, commenting on one of the videos: “We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores. Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say ‘grattis!’ (congratulations)”

SUPPORTING ENGLAND DESPITE THE HATERS: Shop manager stands up against football racists

Ilford – VIJAY SHAH via ELLENA CRUSE and Ilford Recorder

A shop owner of Indian heritage, who was allegedly abused by racists and warned off his show of support by a fellow Indian after adorning his business with the flag of St. George in support of the England World Cup football team has vowed to fight back against the prejudice he suffered by increasing the number of flags flying at his shop, the Ilford Recorder newspaper reported today.

The unnamed owner of GMS Heating & Plumbing Spares, Ilford Lane, in the London-Essex town of Ilford, a Sikh Punjabi, declared his backing of the ‘Three Lions’ team by placing the distinctive red-and-white cross of England around the outside of his store, as well as a string of smaller flags of all the national teams in the World Cup across the shopfront.

 

The decorations riled some locals, who did not understand why a person of Indian origin was supporting England, even though he had lived in the country for forty years and had been supporting the national team for twenty years. Staff at GMS began receiving hate mail and letters criticising their manager’s allegiances. One handwritten missive accused the manager of forgetting his heritage and disavowing his culture and skin colour. The rambling letter went on to say that if National Front racists had seen the flags, the shop owner would have been ” [kicked] back to Indian with out (sic) your trousers on and give you flower (sic) to take”

The note, written anonymously and addressing the GMS owner as ‘Uncle’, annoyed the man and he has vowed to now add more England flags to his football display. 

The manager told the Recorder that the letters would not stop him supporting his favourite side, but that it had cast a shadow over the store’s World Cup celebrations.

“It is shocking how backward minded people think that by supporting the country you live in you will be dishonouring our religion or insulting India,” he added.

“These are the wrong people, not the ones who enjoy being part of the English culture.”

David Landau, a senior caseworker at the local people relations charity Redbridge Equalities and Community Council, said abuse in any form should not be tolerated and needs to be reported.

“This is a rather unusual situation but abuse is abuse and if someone is abused for putting up England flags this is wrong,” he said.

“It shouldn’t be happening and racism needs to be condemned.”

Another South Asian-owned business on the same Ilford road, which runs through the far west of the town along the border with Newham, also reported receiving similar letters after they also flew English flags outside their premises.

THE CRIMEWAVE CONTINUES: London man shot in face, other person stabbed

London – VIJAY SHAH via GEORGIA DIEBELIUS and Metro

The crimewave of stabbings and shootings which has dominated headlines in the London area and across the United Kingdom’s media in recent months shows no sign of abating as two men were attacked in the city only last evening, the newspaper Metro reported.

In Peckham, south-east London, police and an air ambulance were called to a man who was reportedly shot in the face. Witnesses at the crime scene told Metro that a blue Ford vehicle had been cordoned off by police as part of their searches. The driver-side window was said to be shattered. Accounts of the shooting and its aftermath were shared on social media network Twitter. One commenter tweeted: “Shooting in Peckham. Apparently someone got shot in the face with a shotgun”. Another observer added: “Apparently someone has been shot in the face. I feel ill. The road is locked.”. Locals gathered around to try and help the stricken victim, who has not yet been identified.

 

Just an hour earlier in nearby Greenwich, a man was stabbed by assailants unknown. Police also attended this incident. As with the Peckham shooting, no details of the victim have yet been furnished publicly. A Metropolitan Police Service spokesperson told Metro “Police in Southwark were called to Wodehouse Avenue, SE5 at 7.56pm on Saturday, 2 June following reports of a shooting.

‘Armed police attended and found a man suffering from gun shot injuries. ‘He has been taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service. We await an update on his condition.

‘A second man was also found with injuries at the scene and has been taken to hospital for assessment. His condition is believed to be stable. ‘No arrests have been made. A crime scene remains in place. Enquiries continue.”

MINI MAYOR: Ilford boy becomes London’s first ‘children’s mayor’

Ilford – VIJAY SHAH via ELLENA CRUSE and Ilford Recorder

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan beware, there’s a new kid on the block, and yes, he is actually a child. In a first for the city, London has witnessed the swearing into office (unofficially) of its first ‘children’s mayor’ – as part of a promotional campaign by a new kid-friendly theme park. Kishan Shah (no relation to the reporter), aged nine, and hailing from the upmarket Ilford suburb of Chigwell, has been elected mayor for youngsters with the help of children’s activity centre KidZania, his local newspaper the Ilford Recorder reported this past Thursday.

 

Shah beat off thousands of other entries and amazed judges at KidZania with his manifesto of improvements he would make to his city if he won. Among his manifesto pledges, Kishan suggested that people waiting in queues should be offered free fruit while they wait, the introduction of new clear signage for public water fountains, and helping children to interact with their new mayor via a suggestion box.

Kishan’s election was the result of a nationwide search by KidZania, an indoor theme park for children in west London, for a ‘KidZania London city mayor’ as part of their launch of a new annual pass that gives children unlimited access to their activity centre for twelve months. To celebrate Shah’s new ambassadorial role, KidZania will be giving his entire class a trip to their centre, a gold birthday party package for the new mayor himself, and even his own set of mayoral robes and keys to the KidZania City. Shah will also be the first recipient of the new KidZania yearly pass.

Kishan’s new job will be largely promoting KidZania activities, including the official opening of new attractions by the activity centre. The youngster was said to be thrilled at being chosen to be mayor, telling the Recorder: “I would make an excellent mayor as I am calm, friendly and approachable.

“I am also prepared to put in the hard work that being mayor would involve.”

Kishan’s mother Brijal added that the family were proud of their son winning the competition. She said: “He is an incredible boy with so much to give and I know he’ll do a brilliant job for KidZania”

The chief executive officer of KidZania London, Eddie Kemsley, also commented on the new mayor: “We received so many wonderful applications for the mayor position and we thank everyone for their efforts.

“However, there can only be one mayor and we are so happy for Kishan to come on board the KidZania London team.

“His personality really shone through in his application and we loved his ideas about introducing a mayor’s comment box in the city.

“We know he’ll be an enthusiastic voice for the people and we can’t wait for him to get started.”

NATHAN’S PIES AND EELS: Legendary East London cafe to close after 80 years

London – VIJAY SHAH and TOM HORTON via Newham Recorder

East London is to lose another long-time landmark after a business that specialises in selling the area’s traditional delicacy of jellied eels alongside hot football match snacks announced it would be calling time after eighty years in business, according to a report by the local newspaper, the Newham Recorder.

 

Nathan’s Pies and Eels, based in Barking Road, Upton Park, near the former Boleyn Stadium of the football club West Ham United, is a ‘pie and mash’ shop, a restaurant selling traditional London food such as steak and kidney pies and mashed potato It has been run by the Nathan family since it first opened eighty years ago, with forty of those years spent at the same Barking Road site. The shop was very popular with football fans travelling in to watch West Ham play, with its traditional East London fare a highly sought after introduction to local cuisine.

The shop was opened by the great-grandfather of current owner Richard Nathan. However, since West Ham United moved to the former Olympic Stadium in nearby Stratford in 2016, Nathan’s steadily lost business and, in addition to many of its staff nearing retirement age, forcing the shop to reconsider its future. Richard plans to keep it business as usual until the 26th of May this year when Nathan’s will serve its last pie. In its heyday, the small shop was frequented by even the giants of the West Ham locker room, such as Rio Ferdinand and Julian Dicks, during the glory days of the 1990s and 2000s

Speaking with the Newham Recorder, Nathan said the closure of the café would be a ‘sad day’ for the Nathan family, the shop staff and fans of it’s hunger-busting pies and mash, and that the closure was ‘the end of an era’.

“It’s a bit cheesy, but we are like a big family”, Nathan said of his close-knit staff, many of whom have worked at the café for years.

The owner of Nathan’s Pies and Eels himself plans to retrain as a handyman after the shop ceases trading in less than two weeks, the Recorder said. The café has been inundated with condolences and cards from well-wishers.

MURDERS IN LONDON: Newham had highest rate of killings in 2017-2018

London – VIJAY SHAH via JON KING and Newham Recorder

The east London borough of Newham had the highest number of homicides in the last year, with thirteen taking place there, more than in any other borough in the city, according to figures seen and reported in local newspaper, the Newham Recorder, it is said.

The borough tops the league for the murder rate according to figures released by the Metropolitan Police, the police force which deals with crime in the Greater London area, which is made up of thirty-two boroughs.

 

Between the period from April 2017 to March 2018, thirteen killings in the borough were investigated by the police, many involving young people in their teen and twenties. Recent tragedies included that of 18-year-old Sami Sidhom in Chestnut Avenue, Forest Gate, Beniamin Pieknyi, 21, in the Stratford Centre and Promise Nkenda, 17, in Canning Town. Sidhom was stabbed to death by a group of youths while returning from a football match at the new West Ham Stadium in Stratford, north Newham.

Newham’s murder crime rate is triple the rate of neighbouring boroughs, with Redbridge reporting five homicides, Barking and Dagenham reporting four, with Tower Hamlets being the highest at six murders, according to the figures.

On the numbers the Met’s assistant commissioner Martin Hewitt said: “We continue to experience a very busy and challenging time against the backdrop of significant cuts (to police funding).”

“I am very concerned about crime rises, particularly of murder, violent and knife crime.”

Despite a slash in police officer numbers and funding brought about by central government austerity measures, the Met Police has said it is doubling up on tackling knife crime with increased ‘stop-and-searches’ and extra officers on the beat in affected communities.

“There are complex reasons why more young people carry knives. Knife crime cannot be solved only by the police. We need the help of agencies and communities who we know are behind us,” the assistant commissioner said.

The police figures also reported increases in violent crime, robberies, sexual assaults/attacks and burglaries, with 2,082 incidents reported between April 2017-March 2018, according to the Recorder paper.

“Despite the challenges ahead, we continue to focus on bringing offenders to justice, making streets hostile territory for criminals, supporting victims and working with communities,” Hewitt said.

WEST HAM GROUP ATTACK: Man attacked by assailants after not offering cigarette

London – VIJAY SHAH via ALEX SHAW and Newham Recorder

A man was attacked, pelted with stones and kicked in West Ham, in east London, after telling a group of men that he had no cigarettes for them, the local newspaper the Newham Recorder reported.

The incident occurred on 22nd December, 2017 in the area’s Memorial Park when the unidentified man, aged 32, was approached by a group who allegedly began abusing him and picking up stones off the ground to throw at the victim after he told them he did not have any cigarettes. Later, a third man pulled up in a car as the victim was followed to nearby Grange Road by the two other thugs. The driver went up to the victim and punched him in the face, sending the victim sprawling to the ground. The man was then subjected to a sustained group attack, where the two park assailants, said to be cousins of the driver and in their teens, and the driver, believed to be aged in their 20s or early 30s, continued beating him.

 

The victim was left with a fractured jaw, bruises and a deep cut on his head which required stitches in hospital. The attack ended with the driver getting back in his car and departing, while the younger thugs fled the scene on foot.

Local police this past week made a fresh appeal for witnesses this week, as they released images of the two teenagers who began the assault. One is described as in his late teens to early twenties in age, 5ft 9in (1.75m) tall, with either dark brown or black hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured top. The second park thug is described as 6 feet (1.83 metres) in height, with a clean-shaven face, short light brown or blond hair and was wearing a light-coloured hoodie.

The driver is said to be older than the other two, with a darker complexion. He had dark stubble and was of around 5ft 8in (1.72m) in height. He was wearing a blue or other dark-coloured jumper and a beanie hat.

As part of their appeal, police released two CCTV captured photos of the younger attackers to the Newham Recorder. Detective Constable Dave van der Valk asked the public if they recognised the attackers and urged witnesses or acquaintances to call the police and provide their names.

“This was a sustained assault on the victim who was minding his own business when these suspects picked a fight and attacked for no apparent reason, leaving him needing hospital treatment for injuries,” said Det Con van der Valk.

Police ask witnesses, anyone who recognises the males or has information about the suspects to call 101, quoting reference 6068/22DEC17. The pictures of the two wanted men can be found in the Newham Recorder‘s link in Sources below this article.
