ten more to go. See below for what it is.
So far we’ve heard from Lyn Garner, LBH head of Regen, who got us off to a great start by describing how Tottenham is a disgusting slimepit full of crime and poverty and how the only thing to save it is rich outside developers. Then the architect of the Grainger Plan, on how his design is simply the most brilliant slab of bricks seen anywhere in the developed world. Today we heard from Suzanne Johnson of the regen team, with the story of how the Wards building is falling to bits, then Jonny Kibble from Grainger on how he has come to love and admire the cuddly market people.
It really has to be the best show in town, plus Continue reading

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.”

The first ever compost give-away in Tottenham, organised by our very own Page Green Residents’ Association. 10am -4pm, bring own shovels and bags.
On Rangemoor Road by Screwfix.
Last night 9th May the Planning sub-committee of Haringey Council gave planning permission to the uber-rich developer Grainger to build a 23-storey tower at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Tottenham High Road. This will be blight on all the people who will live in its enormous shadow, and the millions who use the tube every year who will never again experience that sparkling moment as you come out of the tube station after a long sticky journey to step into sunlight. Forget that.
Watch the whole shameful episode in glorious 2D. http://www.haringey.public-i.tv/…/webcast…/223972

Remember their names.
Our three ward councillors made a decent fist of it, some of them struggling to support us without losing their Cabinet positions. Isidoris branded it a monstrous oversized KingKong of a building, so now we’ll have competition for the Fagpacket Tower name.
And of course Cllr Strickland the people’s friend, waxed lyrical. He really loves Grainger.
