Murkoffs ice cream
I grew up in Leyton, but my Mother was from Canning Town, so I grew up knowing all about Murkoffs Ice Cream. My parents would often bring home tubs of Ice Cream and god knows how I never got too big, as I often finished off the tub when my parents were out. Now nearly 59 and have been lucky to travel most parts of the world I still haven't come across any ice cream that can compare to Murkoffs. I tell my daughters about this Ice Cream, but like so many young people they have unfortunately never had the pleasure of Murkoffs ice creamKarl Brown 12 Aug
Single Parent House Share East London
I have started a property business which aims to provide shared living accommodation specifically for single parent families. I am a single parent myself and am aware of the benefits of co-living for us guys and gals. Iím looking to source my first property in East London; currently I am looking at a lovely house with 6 double bedrooms and a garden. It would be one parent with a maximum of two children (sharing a bedroom) I would be hoping to accommodate. The parent would have their own room though I could be flexible as price would be per room, so if a parent wanted to share with a baby or toddler they could take one room. I would estimate rent to be around £650 to £800 per room (inclusive of bills) Near good schools. Please contact me if you are interested. email@example.com 10 Aug

Moved here 6 months ago, great regeneration around the station, we live downham side and you get excellent value for money Vs size of houses and gardens. These are classic 1930s houses before things started getting built really small!Jacob 12 Jun
Negative is lots of green spaces managed by phoenix Arizona hi sort out the social housing so are slow to make improvements but no big issue.
Proportionally less social housing compared to the rest of Lewisham from what I can tell and feels like a safe area, never had or seen any trouble. School options quite good.

AVOID THE FOLLOWING ESTATE AGENT AND COUNCIL!
1) Mike 11 Jun
London Rentals and Brent Council:
London Rentals Estate Agents are to be avoid.
They have illegal/without planning permisson converted Flats in Houses... One official illegal Property of such is: 21 Meadow Garth London NW10 0SP
There where 6 illegal Flats there.
The Brent Council was told, but did nothing. Only when the Government Ombudsman was Informed, did 'Bent' Council do something. Though not enough, as the Council has not attempted to Recover the Housing Benefit Public Money, from London Rentals,for the illegal 6 Flats.
There could well be over 1 and a half Millions Pounds to recover of Public Money.
So if your a Brent Tax Payer reading this then put pressure on the Council to get that Housing Benefit Money recovered back to the Brent Tax Payer.
Write to the Local/National Newspapers/Radio/TV Media or to the Government Ombudsman.
