Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Message Broadcast - 20110821

The most significant thing to happen since our last bulletin has been the riots. OpinioN8 has carried as much information as we found. The items posted can be seen by following this link. We hope this information has been useful

Some members of our local community have called a meeting with a view to beginning some sort of remedial action, in response to the riots. This is listed as an event on the site here. Please lend your support.

And now for something completely trivial - OpinioN8 has a smartphone app - no more than a sophisticated at present, which I know works on the iphone, but is untested on other platforms. Download it here (on your smartphone), and let us know what you think. If its popular we can upgrade it.
