The Clock Tower

I was walking past the clock tower at 4pm today and it chimed 12 times! Looks like someone has left a spanner in the works. If you're passing at 5pm, let us know whether it chimes 13. Continue

"Yes, I'll second that. It's certainly different - not the usual sort of exhibition you see in this gallery. I assume this is what is considered to be the latest in contemporary installation art."

" It'll take me ages to get all those prunings in the black rubbish bin. Or maybe I could have some bonfires. I think I lose my discounted parking vouchers as well."

Goodbye free collection of green waste

According to new budget proposals discussed at the last Haringey Cabinet meeting, the free weekly collection of green waste is to end from April 2017.  Instead you will need to opt-in for green waste collection, for which there will be an annual fee of £75. No doubt the Council will tell us the details when we receive our council tax demand for next year.On council tax, the proposal is to freeze it, but there will be a 3% surcharge to pay for for adult social care.See More

"Para 4.5 is a rather odd statement. The reason the Vale Practice appears to have spare rooms is because they used to be occupied by the Queenswood Practice before it moved to the Hornsey Health Centre. They were never part of the…"

"The name you were looking for is Prospero's Books. I remember the 2nd hand bookshop on Crouch End Hill. It turned into a vegetarian restaurant, suitably called Fiction, which didn't last long. I think you'll find that most of the…"

"However, to add fuel to the rumour, I see that the middle unit has a closing down notice in the window, and I am reliably informed that Broadway is being obliged to move out."

"I also heard this rumour about a month ago, but have found nothing to substantiate it. It was in connection to this planning application, now approved, to convert the basement of these properties into a children's gym."

"If you dig out the letter you will find that you are now going to be obliged to have a water meter. All Thames Water customers are, and there is legislation to enforce this, since we are regarded as being in an area of potential water shortages…"

"What you need is a copy of 1001 Books You Must Read Before you Die. It gives a brief synopsis of all the great novels ever written, right up to the 21st century.  I guess you could call it a meta book.  ( I don't think you need to…"
