You may have noticed that the topsoil has arrived and the wires for the climbing wall plants has been fixed. We will be resuming work this Saturday and creating the earth mounds and shape for the garden. We can then complete the path while Capital Gardens plant the first trees and climbers. Please join us between 10am and 12pm or for whatever time you can spare. It will much more fun this time, especially for children! Refreshments provided and a good time assured. Please bring a spade. If you have a wheelbarrow you could bring, perhaps you could give me a ring.
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.
