amanda wilkes replied to Richard McKeever's discussion The Prince Pub: An Asset of Community Value

This year, 2015 marks the centenary of one the best known illustrators you have probably never heard of… Yet anyone growing up in the 50s, 60s or 70s is likely to recognise the images of Robert Norton Ayton even if you do not know his name.

Robert Ayton was born in Russell Road Bowes Park…

Spouters Corner - A local tradition of political free speech.

Posted on April 12, 2015 at 16:30 1 Comment

We have become used to Election Campaigns conducted via broadcast media: leader debates live on TV, party Twitter feeds and viral videos on YouTube. Very different from earlier days when politics relied much more on face-to-face discussions, public meetings and rallies; campaigning “on the stump”.…

Thank you Richard for your welcome, it is many years since I lived in the area, but it was the are of my teenage ramblings as you will see if you look at my website www.judydyble.com

I am currently in the middle of writing my biography and this area does feature in it!! I may have to ask people questons on here about it when my memory fails me :-)

Hi Richard.

Thanks for your welcome message!

I recently moved to Bowes Park and absolutely love the place, and the great community vibe here !

I am a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, and am looking forward to playing my first solo gig @ MUMS on Thursday August 20th, 8-10PM. It's a FREE GIG, YEAH!! And I hope some of you guys will be coming down to check out my music! 

All the best, Andreas

Hi Richard, your article on rail services affecting Bowes Park was very interesting and great news for the area!  I'm moving in hopefully by end of August and I'm really looking forward to being an active part of the community.  I'm moving from Crouch End - was going to move into a flat there (for a ridiculous price) - when I decided to have a look at Bowes Park.  I love the feel of the area but have issues about the men loitering on the side streets and around the New River path - came across one who was relieving himself on a fence.  I would love to find a way to discourage this; perhaps through the forum we can collectively come up with some ideas.

Best wishes.  Allison

Hi Richard,

Thanks for welcoming me onto the site which looks terrific. 

As a local writer and artist based at the Chocolate Favtory, I want to invite local people to my book launch at the Big Green Bookshop, Woodgreen.  I also want to tell them that the book is coming out on the 16 July. Shall I add an event?

Thanks so muhc.

Yana
