Summer’s Here

so dancing in the street is what happens.

Salsa Shutdown 2

The second Salsa Shutdown for Seven Sisters happened on Sunday 25th June.  It was a fundraiser towards the legal costs of objecting to the Compulsory Purchase Order  for Wards Corner.  The inquiry will run from 11th to 28th July, Tuesdays to Fridays, at Wood Green Civic Centre.

The developer Grainger has assets of £2.8 billion. There is no legal aid for CPO’s. The campaign to defend Wards Corner and the Latin Market can only pay for the barristers it needs by fundraising, and they are still short by about £10,000 of the cost of  having a barrister throughout the hearing. The council and Grainger each have a QC (the council’s paid for from Council Tax) and their job will be to cross-examine the witnesses.  Not something most of campaigners look forward to, so the more they can have their barrister to support them, the more fair it will be.  Please help if you can via this crowdfunder site.

The serious hard work of all this dancing raised about £250, plus more (still counting) from the sale of food, many thanks to all contributors.

 

 

Royal Court Theatre in Tottenham

“Tottenham 2016

We’re back for second summer in Tottenham with a programme of work made in close collaboration with the people of Tottenham.

This year’s festival explores Tottenham’s cultures and communities through a variety of art forms, from short films to outdoor performances, all of which are free for Tottenham residents.

As an exciting addition this year, we’ll also have a cultural hub in Tottenham, where we’ll be hanging out and hosting performances. A place where you can come to say hello, get involved or find out more.”

Lots of freebies for N15 + N17 residents.  I don’t know where ‘Shop, Tottenham’ is.  I’ve asked them.  Update: “This precise location of this venue is yet to be confirmed, but will be somewhere central in Tottenham most likely an unused retail space, and anyone who booked will be notified of this.”

Launch of Wards Corner Action Plan

The N15 Development Trust Wards Corner Community Plan Action Plan Launch

25th February 2016 – 7pm

At Zumbale, 263 High Rd, London N15 4RR (just north of Seven Sisters tube, past Costas)wc1.jpg

 Who is the N15 Development Trust?

The N15 Development Trust is an organisation formed of members of the local community to deliver the Community Plan for Wards Corner in Seven Sisters. This proposal was granted planning permission by the council in May 2014.

Why is this plan best for the local community?

It will restore the historic Wards Corner building and provide a genuinely distinctive landmark at the entrance to Tottenham.

  • It will realise the potential of this hidden treasure for the benefit of the local population.
  • It will promote social inclusion and sustainable restoration, instead of demolition.
  • It will represent inclusive regeneration and conservation of heritage and diversity.
  • The Community Plan will promote independent businesses rather than corporate interests.

What are the advantages of the community plan?

In 2008, Seven Sisters Market was hailed by the BBC as a “mini-United Nations.” Despite decades of neglect, the hard work and perseverance of the market traders has preserved this unique space for use by people of all nationalities. However, the site is in urgent need of redevelopment and enhancement. The Community Plan will deliver this in a cost-effective way, within a relatively short timescale and primarily for the benefit of the public.

How do i find out more and get involved?

The N15 Development Trust is always looking for more support from volunteers. Join us to celebrate the launch of our action plan to deliver the Community Plan for this iconic building.
