CENF AT THE FESTIVAL

Dear Crouch Ender, you'll be relieved to know that this message will not be telling you how to vote in the EU referendum. But should you choose to remain in Crouch End, do come and see us at the marvel which is the Crouch End Festival.

On the festival days of Saturday 11th, Sunday 12th and Sunday 19th,...

Once again we're seeking the authentic voice of the N8 resident - aiming to capture your comments, ideas, celebrations and moans with a smörgåsbord of maps, leaflets, blackboards, sticky labels and balloons. What do you think of the forthcoming Gospel Oak-Barking Line closure, or the proposal to franchise the post office, the Middeys building works saga, goodbye Wetherspoons hello Superdrug, or Here café's crowdfunding campaign? Let us know.

Better still you could lend a helping hand – should you feel that standing about talking Crouch End for an hour is your cup of tea (we know it is, we've seen Facebook).

Hornsey Town Hall Development (redux)

Did someone mention the Town Hall?
Well it was probably us – and we've written to the council to prove it. The sale of the Town Hall and the public square is now fast approaching, but Crouch Enders remain suspicious. Can the Neighbourhood Forum get involved?

More Festival news

The Crouch End Festival are affiliate members of the Neighbourhood Forum of course, as are many of the other participants, from Crouch End Players to Songworks, and a good few of the venues, including the ArtHouseEarl HaigMoors Bar, and many more. Break a leg.

There are other opportunities to express a thought or three about Crouch End too – Tania Lopez-Winkler is creating an artwork that records memories of our part of north London (Town Hall), and Middlesex University Interior Design and Interior Architecture students are asking people to think about the future of the Town Hall (Ply Gallery).

Also...

...in the last month we held a Making Day to create consultation materials, we ran a stall at the Crouch End Fun Run, we've responded to planning applications, given advice to community campaigns, and batted for Crouch End in council decisions about the Community Infrastructure Levy...


Next meeting of the Forum Executive Committee

Our next meeting is on July 4th at 7pm in Hornsey Town Hall. You can find details on our website. We've also formed Working Groups to look at key aspects of the development of the area, do contact us for more info.

The Forum are working toward a survey of Crouch End and the development of policies that can direct the way our community develops in the future – ourNeighbourhood Plan

And don’t forget, new members are always welcome, no subscription necessary, and open to all. We now have over 200 people, local organisations and businesses signed up.
