POST OFFICE

Financial difficulties at Islington Boys’ Club, in Parkurst Road, were said to have caused the termination of 31-year-old Mr W.C. Jennings appointment as full-time leader.

A Second World War veteran, former Islington councillor and dedicated trade unionist from Cally died last night – and cross-party voices today paid tribute to his life and memory.

“Highbury Corner plans welcomed” reads the Gazette headline. Changes to the roundabout are afoot. Campaigners battle to save a 100-year-old tree and urge people to support plans that would see the link between Upper Street and Holloway Road closed. The date? December 20, 2007.

Highbury Corner suffered one of Islington’s most destructive wartime attacks 73 years ago. Ahead of Sunday’s Remembrance parade, the Gazette speaks to survivors about their memories of the blast – and how Islington remained defiant.

One of Islington’s forgotten gems, the Finsbury Park Empire, has been commemorated with a memorial plaque. The Gazette pulls back the curtain to look at the history of the music hall and variety theatre.
