12 January 1907

There is a large attendance when the Hampstead Parliament debating society resumes its weekly meetings in the hall of the Blind School, Swiss Cottage. The debate on the question of Women's Suffrage attracts many ladies, some of whom bring their needlework with which to fill in the duller moments of debate. One man declares that women are absolutely unfitted by their education and training to take up the burden of voting.

A contract is sealed between University College School and Messrs Dove Brothers who are erecting the new school buildings in Hampstead. The whole school will move from Gower Street in September, when all the buildings should be completed.

At Highgate petty sessions an East Finchley man is fined 10s with costs for throwing snowballs on Boxing Day.
