It’s hard to express the intense pleasure of reading Andrea Goldsmith’s new novel, Invented Lives. It’s not just that it’s an absorbing novel that held my interest from start to finish, it’s also a book filled with insights that will stay with me for a long time. While the central character in Invented Lives is Galina […]

In 1884, a very precise description was published of the boundaries of Tooting Graveney Parish. It details the boundary fields of the Parish,who owned them and what they were being used for. We are retracing the route again in July 2019 and hope to evoke some of the historical landscape of late Victorian Tooting, stopping […]

Constant noise emanating in to your house can drive you around the bend.

Especially at night. We’ve all been in bed knowing there is an early start the next day and been angered by the constant noise from neighbours.

Whether you are living next door to a party house, dogs are continually barking or their car alarm has gone off for the eighteenth time this week, it is inevitably stressful.

And if the issue is particularly anti-social than the council, or even the police can get involved and those responsible can face hefty fines.

And it appears to be a significant issue in Bristol, although one that has lessened in recent years.

The complaints raised in Bristol in 2018

Including the noise pollution number.

A top chef has questioned the way restaurants are inspected for their hygiene.

Pete Laurenson, who runs the kitchen in The Victoria Park in Bedminster, was celebrating this week as his workplace’s cleanliness was praised by council officials.

But the 35-year-old can still recall the pain he felt when an earlier inspection resulted in a two-star hygiene rating.

He said: “It’s hurtful for everyone in the kitchen – the morale of everyone in the kitchen dropped for a few months.”

The Tudor Travel Guide

In my mind, the Palace of Collyweston has become nothing short of the stuff of legend; an extensive Tudor palace, much favoured by the invincible Margaret Beaufort; the place in which a sad farewell was made to the 14-year-old Margaret Tudor as she progressed north to take up her position as Queen of Scots, now […]

The Grass Library is a gorgeous book.  Anyone who loves animals will be enchanted… but it’s a book that will challenge your thinking as well. David Brooks is the author of some books I’ve really liked.  He’s a very versatile writer, publishing poetry, short fiction, essays, non-fiction and novels, two of which I’ve read and reviewed […]

CHICKEN chain KFC has already sold out of its new vegan burger, only four days after it rolled out a month-long trial. And disappointed fans will have to wait until July 2 to get their hands on it again. The KFC vegan burger is made with Quorn fillets The trial sees chicken fillets swapped for ones made from Quorn and smothered in the Colonel’s Original Recipe mix of herbs and spices. It’s the latest fast-food chain to take on the challenge of creating meals to meet the rising demand for food that isn’t made from animal products, such as meat, dairy and eggs. McDonald’s is already trialling vegan chicken McNuggets in Norway, while Gregg’s launched it’s vegan sausage roll earlier this year. But the new innovation at KFC proved so popular that in just three days, the “Imposter Burger” racked up sales about 500 per cent higher than a normal new KFC burger, according to the chain. This was noticed by unhappy customers on Twitter, with one user writing: “Went to try the new burger today and it was sold out. Come on KFC sort it out.” While another wrote: “Word is the vegan burger is nearly sold out!? Will it still available in Gloucester Road store tomorrow?” KFC, which typically only serves fried chicken, claims the burger “delivers on taste, crunch and succulence”. Like a normal fillet burger, it’s topped with fresh iceberg lettuce and vegan mayonnaise in a bun. At £2.99, the vegan sandwich is cheaper than it’s chicken alternative, which costs £3.99. Upgrading your meal to include a drink costs £3.49 compared to £4.99 for the fillet burger meal. The meat-free option contains fewer calories too with just 450 compared to 475 in a standard fillet burger. [boxout headline=”What does the Imposter Burger taste like?” featured-image=”4360356″ intro=”THE Sun’s Amira Arasteh gives her verdict on KFC’s new vegan burger:”]I feel like if I didn’t know that it wasn’t chicken then yeah, I could easily believe that this was meat, but it’s more difficult when you know that it’s not. It pretty much looks the same, smells the same and the taste is pretty spot on too. After the first bite, I felt that it tasted like chicken and it didn’t scream vegan burger at all. The Quorn looks like chicken fibres but I think it sticks together a bit more than meat would when you’re eating it. They’ve done a good job to keep the KFC flavour that we all know and like too. Overall, I think that the main differences were subtle, like the texture was slightly different to chicken which you only notice when you chew it.
