Setting new benchmarks for Martin's Walk

Bench installed at Martin's Walk

Final adjustments: A little to the left...

The residents were out in force again last Saturday, putting up planters all along Mayes Road and up to Alexandra Road via Martin's Walk.

Centrepiece is the beautiful white stone bench, placed at the top of Martin's Walk (behind Boots), with planters on each side, with a view of the mural.

Planters are moved into place. Each one weighs 180kg, even without the soil.

Great care was taken to safely move the 250 kilo's worth of street furniture to it's intended location. The area was meticulously cleaned, even the bin on the corner. Now the solid white slab is in place, it will offer rest for weary shoppers and residents alike.

The planters, filled with top soil, are ready for the planting.

While all this was going on another group of residents tended the Community Garden on Hornsey Park Road.

All in all a good weekend for our streets and alleys. If you would like to join us, drop us a line or just drop by, we are meeting every 1st Saturday of the month.

Job done! Bench is in place in Martin's Walk.

      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.

      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.
