As we prepare to go to the polls, we'd like to thank the candidates of the three main parties for coming to our hustings and giving us the opportunity to meet them. We thank them for this, their commitment to the democratic process and for the respectful and considerate way they addressed local concerns, their audience and each other. The holding of election hustings is probably the most important thing PMRA can do - bringing before the community those who seek to represent us in parliament and help make our laws, and helping us to exercise our right to choose. And the candidates had a message for us: if, as some of the questions seemed to suggest, there is something of a democratic deficit between local government and the community in Wood Green, democracy provides the means to hold those responsible to account.

    • Gardeners and critics unite!

      The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
