Friends of Ally Pally Station need your votes (please)

HelloThis is from your neighbours over at Alexandra Palace Station.We hope even occasional station users and passers by have enjoyed the gradual transformation of the station platforms into a community garden, over the last 18 months. We haven't finished yet, though. Among our many plans for 2018 we have been given access to a plot adjoining the station and we would love to turn it into a rose garden. This will be a lot of work but there is enough will to make it happen. We need your help…See More

There will be mince pies and mulled wine, provided by our friends at The Yard - and you can never have too much of either at this time of year. We will also be unveiling our community notice board.

"Good news is that we have now been told that we definitely will be let through to maintain the garden. Obviously we would prefer not to have the gate but we have an amicable agreement that the garden won't suffer."

Ally Pally Station Community Garden

Thought I'd share this great video clip about the garden at Alexandra Palace Station. I love it as, not only is it for the community but it was created by the community. It's a minute long, but is part of a longer piece about station gardens across the country. Just wanted to share our segment - and do visit if you're passing!https://youtu.be/ED_YX8vcOO8PS - if you want to support the project, clicking the Thumbs Up icon beneath the video would be…See More

"Great news! I will try to find out what times the station is staffed, as since we lost the ticket office I haven't actually seen a member of staff there, but maybe I'm going at the wrong times. Thanks for the update"

"I think that's a real shame, Giles:  I've noticed your lovely planters and they've really brightened up the station.  Do you want any help i.e. letters of support to the train company?   I will happily write one!"

Bridge at Alexandra Palace Station

If any of you use Alexandra Palace station, you will know that there is a bridge that crosses from Station Rd to Alexandra Park Rd. It also leads down to to the station platforms. Thameslink Great Northern have now locked this off so entrance to the station is only via the pay gates in the ticket office.Earlier in the summer many of us helped create and maintain a station garden but now we can't get down to tend to our planters without paying. I contacted Thameslink asking them to unlock this…See More
