The appointment of Capital Gardens by Haringey Council to complete the final design and plans for planting brings completion of the community garden a step nearer. The garden, conceived and championed by PMRA is being funded by the council's Making the Difference fund and is due for completion in April 2010. It will occupy the prominant site on the corner of Hornsey Park Road and Clarendon Road and will make an attractive entrance to our area
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. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
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.
