 We are kicking off 2021 with the launch of our Pillars of the Community campaign! This project aims to shine a spotlight on the unsung heroes and cornerstones of our local community. Every month we will feature a noteworthy institution and an everyday hero from East London, and beyond.

It’s difficult to think of a more fitting institution to kick off our Pillars of the Community campaign. We had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Eat or Heat’s co-founder, Gary Nash, to find out a little bit more about this outstanding local service.

KENTON-1


THE KENTON

 

Our second installment of Pillars of the Community is an eccentric Homerton hotspot, which is known and loved across the city of London: The Kenton. If you don’t know it, then where have you been hiding? Read on and get to know it! 


The Kenton is best described as a traditional British pub with a Scandinavian twist. Egil, the landlord of The Kenton, is inextricably linked with the pub’s appeal and rich character. Hailing from a hamlet of just 55 people in West Norway, Egil is a warm, interesting guy with an almost tangible passion for his business. He is a licensed drone operator, who films and edits his own social media videos, has lived in cities all over the world, and performs local beer deliveries on his cargo bike: We could have extended the interview by hours just to listen to his stories!
