Wind and Rain — New Music this weekend at Highgate and Queens Park

On Sunday we are delighted to welcome Helena Kay (Tenor Sax) to Queens Park with Nick Costley-White (Guitar) and also on Sunday at Highgate trumpeter Dylan Jones and Dani Diodato on guitar. Constantly changing weather forecasts have made it hard to pin down which if either weekend day will be dry, but we have gazebos at least for the artists. As always if you enjoy the music we will be grateful for any contributions to the fund set up by the Musicians’ Benevolent Fund to support musicians who can’t get work because of Covid-19.

Trumpeter Dylan Jones — ‘a beast’, according to his peers

Home deliveries from cafés — how this site will work

During the spring lockdown hundreds of customers ordered home deliveries from us, starting with things that then were hard to get, like eggs, fresh bread and home baking supplies. Then we delivered by van from a single café, Parliament Hill Fields Lido, and used the web-commerce site Shopify. But that didn’t allow us to organise around individual locations and deliver locally what they have in stock. So now we are working on an ordering system that will be like a physical visit in which you can see what is on offer near where you live — whether bread, a dish of the day, oils, coffee, wine, salads — and have them delivered at short notice.
