Election result: Westminster North

By Dina Rickman, May 7, 2010

Labour MP Karen Buck has held Westminster North, incorporating St John’s Wood, in a nail-biting contest with Tory Joanne Cash.

During the campaign Ms Buck told the JC that she had always "championed" the causes of Jewish constituents.

Ms Cash, nicknamed a "Cameron cutie", criticised media coverage of her candidacy, which she claimed had "an incredibly powerful" impact on the result. In a recent Channel 4 Dispatches programme, her campaign was said to have received a large amount of money from Conservative Friends of Israel.


Blossoming painting tribute to Anne Frank

By Robyn Rosen, May 6, 2010

A painting by a St John's Wood artist is to be hung in Anne Frank House on the 50th anniversary of its opening.

Cindy Lass will join Eva Schloss, Anne's step-sister, in Amsterdam to hand over her painting, No Time to Blossom. It depicts the chestnut tree Anne could see from her attic hideaway.

Mrs Lass, who has previously been commissioned by Sir Elton John and George Michael, hoped the painting's message would resonate with future generations. "Everyone has the right to blossom."

Businessman 'shot burglar alarm to stop ringing'

By Marcus Dysch, January 28, 2010

A businessman is being investigated by police after a shotgun was fired at a neighbour’s burglar alarm late at night.

Peter Shalson, 52, was questioned following an incident at the property next to his detached home in St John’s Wood, north west London, earlier this month.

A butler at the neighbour’s house claimed CCTV footage had caught an intruder climbing a cast-iron fence, smashing a glass door and then shooting the alarm’s control box to stop it ringing.


St John’s Wood is next in line for eruv

By Robyn Rosen, January 14, 2010

Plans are being drawn up for another London eruv, this time covering St John’s Wood and Maida Vale.

The North Westminster eruv will allow 1,000 Orthodox residents within the pole and wire boundary to do things otherwise forbidden under Jewish law on Shabbat or festivals, such as pushing a buggy or wheelchair or carrying prayer books.

In March, the eruv committee intends to submit an application to Westminster Council for the erection of 38 poles covering Boundary Road in the north, Avenue Road in the east, Regent’s Canal in the south and Shirland Road in the west.
