Top 4 stories to watch in NW Philly

1. On Sunday afternoon, a faith-based gun-violence prevention “movement” will host residents, churches and community groups from Germantown and Mt. Airy for a “call to action and public witness” event and procession starting at Cliveden Park. NewsWorks will have a reporter and photographer on-hand to provide coverage early next week.

2. Ever thought about brewing your own beer? We’ll take a look at how one Mt. Airy home-brewer makes his magic brew, but will also compare his experience with that of Iron Hill’s microbrewer in Chestnut Hill.

3. We’ll tell you about a Mt. Airy bike shop that just opened a separate showroom for electric bikes.

4. While the pre-scheduled event calendar is pretty light for the week leading into the traditional end-of-summer Labor Day Weekend, NewsWorks will be finalizing plans for its comprehensive Northwest Philly back-to-school coverage the first week of September. As always, you are invited to reach out to us if you have any events or tips.
