Yesterday I was told by Haringey's planners that, in the interests of road safety, raised sections of road had been created at the ends of Wolsely and Shanklin Roads. Today these reports appear on…Continue

To boldly go - Clive Carter to Northumberland Park - #HDV @2billiongamble

Every item that Clive Carter has added to this website has been carefully and thoughtfully researched. If he has made mistakes, they have not been due to carelessness or sloppy thinking. I feel sure that his decision to stand as a candidate for councillor in Northumberland Park has been given just as much thought and care. His letter below has been taken from page 22 of the …See More

"Thank you. The CENF submission is better, and will be just as roundly ignored. Ridding ourselves of the hapless trio is a different argument. Apparently Strickland has been 'triggered' which is bad for him."

"My reading of the Companies House documents is that Mayil family still owns 67%, Akdogan 33%. Curious that Akdogan changed his name from Erdogan (same name as Turkish President) in 2016."

To boldly go . . .

Posted on September 1, 2016 at 19:00 0 Comments

 . . where few my age have gone before. 

Every so often something happens in my life which inspires me. Last weekend such a thing happened. I took part in, and did tolerably well at, an icosathlon (from the Greek icos = 20, athlon = contest). Like decathlon, you know, Daley Thompson in the Olympics, all those years ago,  only this is 20 events. Unfortunately for the world what this inspires me to is vanity and dire prose.

So what has inspired me.

Medical Matters - optimism , pessimism and David Cameron

Posted on October 1, 2014 at 13:48 0 Comments

This is a blog, and since one of the things I know well and care about a lot is me, I feel entitled to write on the subject. Perhaps my researches might help someone else.

But, to start with a digression, (and a co-ordinating conjunction), I don't share David Cameron's taste for seven day a week General…

I went to a funeral

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 15:21 0 Comments

I tried volunteering as a hobby about three years ago. I'm really not very good at it, the main problem being that a volunteer such as I has to strike a balance between doing what is asked of him, and his desire to more good than is currently being achieved. I am in the fortunate position of knowing more about most things than most people, which obviously enables me to offer enormously useful advice in almost every circumstance in which I find myself, indeed to propose changes to the way…

Chive flower tempura - food from my garden

Posted on May 30, 2014 at 9:05 0 Comments

The garden is looking pretty good at the moment - I like my garden overcrowded and full of stuff. The nettles are doing well  - their purpose is to attract butterflies, but it hasn't happened yet. The apple tree has a lot of tiny apples waiting to grow - the June drop should be a big one. Not sure if I have the patience to follow the RHS advice to thin by hand! The pond is looking very full and clear, now that I have…

OK Adrian, in future I'll use the Forum, just feeling my way around.

I think this is a good welcome.  I can't think of anything obvious it needs or doesn't need at the moment.  The terms of service are clear and reasonable too - was that on before or is it a new addition?

Thanks Adrian

Our logo was designed for free by a local graphic designer/ book cover artist.

I get a suprising amount of traffic from a one line entry on Wikipedia. We were fortunate to be able to build on some existing community infrastructure when we set up at the end of last summer - the community association circulated info via both e-mail and printed newsletters which helped ... but sign-ups do seem to have stalled.

 

I do a weekly update (via broadcast message) which seems to generate a bit of a flurry of activity.But I am keen to recruit more members.

I do like the N8 related puns for your sections - very smart idea.

If you fancy meeting up for a coffee (or a beer) sometime to chat about Hyperlocal Websites etc let me know

 

Good Luck

Richard
