Saving the Moselle Brook - if there's one thing we must do for future generations

It would be so easy to restore Hornsey's only river as its wends its way through the eastern most reaches of N8 into Wood Green. Its course is recorded in the layout of our streets and their names. It's been the policy of the Environment Agency, the Mayor for London and Haringey Council itself for […]

The greening of Hornsey Park: help needed

Suppose the area filled up with butterflies and bees. Hedgehogs reappeared. And bats. Air quality improved. Back gardens spoke to public open space (and ‘non-space’) and vice-versa. The Moselle Brook was something you could see and sit beside. If that’s part of your vision for the area we need your time and assistance. Following next […]

Jazz in Coburg Road

Everyone will be concerned following the tragic events at Grenfell Tower on the 14 June 2017. While there are no longer any tower blocks in our area (Dylan Thomas House on Turnpike Lane was demolished nearly 20 years ago), many will have concerns about fire safety or have family or friends living in buildings that […]
