The 105 native Englsih trees plated last autumn around the junction of Turnpike Lane and Hornsey Park Road are to become part of the nation's tribute to the Queen on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee. Donated by the Woodland Trust, they are part of 6 million tree tribute across the nation and will be recorded in an official Book to be presented to the Queen as part of the Jubilee celebrations. A similar Book was presented to her Grandfather, George V in 1937, when communities across Middlesex and the country planted trees to mark the occasion.
Visit Jubilee Woods for more about the tribute.
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
Sometime in the next week or so the work on Mayes Road will near completion. It will be a new benchmark for the look and feel of our neighbourhood and enhance its biodiversity. (photo: Luke 'Duke' Newcombe)
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.
