Annual General Meeting, 2019 - Updated with meeting minutes.

Meeting Minutes

Annual Report

This was prepared and written by the two co-chairs and read to the meeting.

Drug Dealing

The longterm issue of class A drug dealing in our streets has escalated over the last few months.
A resident of Alexandra Road described her experiences of having her front porch effectively taken over by drug users. Her appeal to her neighbours led to a meeting at Shine attended by 40 local residents. This led to them setting up an action group and a further meeting attended by 65 people including the two ward police officers, two local councillors and a Haringey council officer. Strategies are emerging and a further meeting is arranged for 30 October.

Mayes Road Pocket Park

The mural of the lost house at the end of Park Ridings is now complete and the scaffolding down. We have plans for the improvement of the road junction between Mayes Road and Hornsey Park Road, and the installation of a new garden, seating and play area. We hope this will be completed by the end of March 2020.

Winter Drinks

This will take place on the morning of Saturday 30 November 2019 at the above junction.

Xmas Quiz and Social

After many successful years, we did not have the resources to run the quiz last year. We are hoping to re-instate it this year on Saturday evening 7 December 2019.

Treasurers Report

Prepared by the treasurer and audited. It was read and agreed.

Committee members

The meeting agreed that the present committee and officers should continue with one additional member representing Alexandra Road.

      Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future.

    • 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.
