Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
We are running another of our popular cricket camps at North Midd CC in Park Road N8 over the half term holiday.
The format will be similar to previous camps with a good mixture of drills, skills coaching, net sessions and matches. We'll also have wet weather alternatives, so the camp will go ahead each day.
The camp is aimed at boys and girls aged 7 – 13 and will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day.
The cost is £100 for the 4 days. Individual…Continue

The Lady Taverners Under 11 Competition is played as a festival with all the matches being played in one day. Three teams all finished on the same number of league points, and North Middlesex was declared the overall winner on the number of runs scored. North Midd Girls received the trophy, plus medals and certificates from Pinky, the Middlesex CCC club mascot.

I am delighted to be taking part in this tea shop story festival. I will be reading from my forthcoming novella, The Finnish Girl, which is a prequel to The Englishman, the first book in my Nordic romance series.
I will also be talking a bit about how I use my own life for my fiction (and stay sane). There will be a question and answer session afterwards.
If you happen to be in London this Saturday, pop over to Queens Wood near Highgate for a…Continue

I'm a local Crouch End author, and can often be seen out and about with my border terrier in Queen's Wood or Priory Park, or watching comedy Downstairs at The King's Head. When my first novel, The Englishman, came out, I stood at the bus stop and handed out leaflets and many of you lovely locals took a copy and I saw a spike in my sales. So, beware, I'll be there again soon handing out more leaflets, this time…Continue

This is a great board to play on. It's full sized (all 88 keys), comes with manual, stand, book rest, A/C adapter, and a sustain pedal, which a lot of other boards don't and you have to buy the sustain separate. The sound quality is great.
£350 + collect from Crouch End. Please contact Martin on email@example.com

I rashly promised someone over on Facebook that I'd blog the recipes for my Finnish Christmas vegetable bakes... sadly I never got round to it this year, but perhaps in 2015? I see from my archives that I have blogged several times about my Finnish food traditions (with pictures), so until next year, this will have to do.
As usual, Christmas was a busy time for the Halme family. On the 24th, together…Continue

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…Continue

Hello, I've lived in Crouch End for many years, and absolutely love it! I've just set up a new business selling upcycled wooden jewellery but sadly I had to move north for a while as the cost of living is so much cheaper. I can't wait to be able to afford to move back, the inspiration for the business www.boughtobeauty.co.uk started at the allotments up by Ally Pally, such a wonderful oasis of calm. Anyway I've just joined OpinionN8 as I want…Continue
