Tony, our lovely Dry Cleaner, retires on Monday, September 30

Tony has worked here looking after our clothes for over 20 years.  His wife, Rita, used to be there also but is now helping with grandchildren. He has worked since he was 17.   I am sure we all wish him a very long and happy retirement.  I hope he finds some interesting things to do which he has not had time to even look for all these years, and that he enjoys spending more time with the grandchildren.We will all miss him.  Pop in and say Goodbye.Do look at the photos taken in 2001.See More

Free food

The Blackberries are nearly finished, but there are free apples in the Community Garden and along the New River Path.  The most wonderful crop is on a vine that is along the Hidden River Path, on the left as you approach Trinity Road, backing on to the church grounds.  If you are tall, or have a ladder, or a lopper, you can get amazing grapes.  Organic, local and free.  Too tall for me, but good luck to taller people.  See the photo attached.  Happy eating!See More

Caroline Simpson replied to Daniel Cowan's discussion £80,000 to improve Bowes Park station
"It would be helpful for children and small adults if there was a handrail at a lower level on each side of the stairs.  It would be simple and relatively cheap to install.  Keep the existing one and just put a lower one in below."

Bridie Dyllon died on Sunday 2nd

Those of you who have listened to the interviews on My Bowes Park will remember hearing Bridie Dyllon, the elderly Irish lady well known in Myddleton Road.  She died after some years in a care home.  Bridie came from a small farm in Ireland. As a child she used to feed the farm animals, then go to school – barefoot as she did not have shoes except for going to church on Sundays – and then feed the animals again after school. She came to the UK and worked as a nursing assistant in the early…See More

10 years ago I wrote a short piece for some friends about daffodils and Bounds Green. I was deleting a load of old files and found it.  As it is daffodil time again, and there are even more people here escaping wars 'back home' , I am 'sharing' it wider. 

"Yesterday something happened that sort of woke me up a bit.  So I thought I would tell you about…
