Markfield AGM and Open Day Invitation 25th October 2014


Quote from HoL:

Please check out this great community resource. Markfield caters for young people and adults who may have learning difficulties ranging from mild to severe. They also offer real support for the families involved,helping them with all aspects of their lives which can include accessing services, education and benefits. At a time of austerity it is a lifeline for families who need support and is not confined to those in financial need, but treat everyone as equal and to be included.

West Green Road Pocket Park plans

Pocket Park A5 flyer-1

From the Area Regeneration Manager

There is a consultation event scheduled for TODAY on the West Green Road Pocket Park (drop in between 6.15-8pm, Premiere Cafe, 114 West Green Road, Thursday 9th October).

The Pocket Park was developed in 2013 by Gemma Aked as part of a range of projects for West Green Road (including shopfront improvements and bridge art, both of which are now being delivered).

In 2013 consultation with local businesses and residents identified support for new green spaces on West Green Road and we successfully bid for funding from the Mayor of London to deliver the project.  Since then we have been working with a local architect to develop the designs  and would like to share these with you to get your views.  Attached is a flyer with more details on this event as well as a link to the project webpage- the flyer has gone out to residents and businesses close to the site.

If you can’t make tomorrow please contact me if you would like further details or want to submit any comments (by Friday 24th October).  We look forward to working with you on this exciting project for West Green Road.

Thank you,


Suzanne Johnson

Tottenham Doors

In the cold winter of 2013, in Tottenham, London, a team of thirteen local residents were trained and employed by Living Under One Sun, supported by LB Haringey, to door knock 10,000 homes and hold conversations with residents about their personal travel behavior.

The team also aimed to increase awareness of walking cycling and public transport options.

What the team did not know was how the life and the stories of the people living behind these doors in their local neighbourhoods would make them feel about where they live.

Living Under One Sun are having a fruit and vegetable stall at the Haringey Green Fair on the 6th September. Come along and find out about all our courses, volunteering opportunities and our beautiful allotment. We are also having a stall run by beekeeper Ian, all about our Urban Honey which is made on the allotment. Also, Joanne Barrett will be talking about The Haringey Big Community Switch and how to save money on energy costs as well as how to use less energy.

Filling The Gap pauses

“It is with great sadness that we announce that tomorrow, August 8th, will be Filling the Gap’s last café for a while.  We’ll still be at the big Newlon summer party on Saturday at Hale Village, but then Filling the Gap will be pressing pause on the community café for a while.  Renée and I will continue to cater and teach our ‘Cooking on a Budget’ course, but we have decided to step away from our application for the Hub and our Saturday pop ups.”  Read more.

see  Filling the Gap website.

Renee and Kate are two locals with young families who said no to unhealthy fast food and set up their own café, Filling the Gap N17, serving healthy, homemade and affordable food. It ran on Fridays till August 8th.  Hope to see it back soon.
