Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

20130109 - A New Year update

My first attempt at a round up for 2013, so a Happy New Year to you all.

Since our last bulletin:

Policing and safety have cropped up - are you aware of these scams and these somewhat misleading charity collectors also very well documented by Steppenwolf.

Our local police want to know your priorities (Mine is BG Max) and will pass on any notes for neighbouring Hornsey.

Haringey also wants your opinion on Haringey parks, and Smarter Travel.

There has been something of a triumph for Pinkham Way activists.

The nature of the High Street in Crouch End attracts some attention - on the one hand there is a new coffee shop to add the many already here, but on the other hand we have a new electrical outlet with a mass of stock.

A couple of our favourite local events come round again. The Crouch End Festival 2013 is on the move, and reports of the death of the YMCA 10k are apparently greatly exaggerated.

Members are looking for recommendations - Ruwan is looking for a Nanny, while Lezley needs a roof er and a carpenter.

Adrian's cleaner again has a vacancy.

Boris is making money available for a pocket park - who would have thought Crouch End was deprived? The deadline for the first round of funding has passed but some money is still left.

Our pictorial blogger David Gee has a new website - I'll post the details when I get them.

Bizarrely, I have chosen toblog about my slippers
