Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Lynne Featherstone (she's a member of parliament) has started a competition to find Hornsey and Wood Green (that's her constituency) 's favourite independent shop. You can vote here on Lynne's blog (and be entered in a draw for £100).
You'll note she does not mention Crouch End, but only Hornsey and Wood Green, that being the name of her constituency. This is not a deliberate snub. Crouch End is part of her bailiwick.
A couple of years ago OpinioN8 attempted to get Crouch End's shops a higher profile in a national competition run by the Daily Telegraph. This page listing our independent shops is now out of date as well as being incomplete, but may nevertheless serve as a reminder of many of them. I will attempt soon to bring it up to date. Unfortunately none of our shops did win in the Telegraph contest.
