Sorry 'bout the delay, folks, but I've been laid low with a bad case of the 'flu these past few weeks. I'm back on the mend now and will be able to keep you informed of what's going down in the 'hood.
I'd like to welcome our new advertiser, The Old Boot Factory, to the Westender. It's only through the support of businesses like theirs that the Westender has been able to survive for the past twenty three years or so.
Helen Abrahams, our hard-working local Councilor, is a long time supporter of our efforts and it will be a sorry day when she steps down.
My old friends George Fotinos at Terry White and Kat at Bent Books have been consistent supporters - both businesses were in the very first issue in 1992, would you believe.
Anyway, have a good read of the news on offer, some of it local news and the rest of it world news that has an impact on us locally.
