CROUCH END FESTVAL SEEKS CROWD FUNDING FROM THE COMMUNITY

As many people know, we don't get any funding form the Government, any arts groups (like the Arts Council) or Haringey Council.

We rely entirely on money from local people and businesses.

So this year we are giving every Crouch Ender (and others) a chance to be part of the festival by donating towards it.

Scarlet Rage Vintage 1st Birthday Party

Crouch End Knowledge: Scarlet Rage Vintage

When will the works at Shepherd's Cot walkway be finished?

Anyone who’s been passing through the top of Park Road recently will know that the council has been working on improving the pavement on the Health Centre side. Happily this is now complete (after weeks of disruption), and looks rather nice in my opinion.

Haringay Council are, however, still working on…
