This weekend, we will be working on the Boots alleyway, planting shrubs in the gravel border between the path and fence. This, and the Garden in Hornsey Park Road are all part of the bigger Hornsey Park Garden Project.
We had planned to do the last few edges of the new garden but the area has been obstructed by some unscheduled highways works and abandoned materials. We will resolve this on Monday. We will put the sign up when the area is free to work on again and fenced to prevent any similar abuse by contractors.
The plants and materials for the path have been ordered this week.

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.
