Woodside Park Mosaic?

Hi there,Just across the High Road from Bowes Park lies Woodside Park and I'm from the Friends group that support improvements to our local green space.  We have a new entrance and sensory garden on the corner by the Mushroom House as I'm sure you've seen, and we are looking for an artist who might be interested in talking to us about a mosaic to decorate the rather bare looking curves that welcome you in.If any one out there has any ideas how we could put the icing on the cake, as it were,…See More

Palm House, Wolves Lane N22

"Have to say I visited the palm house for the first time the other day and I was utterly underwhelmed. It could be fantastic! I would very much visit more if there was a bit more investment to the place."

Hi Michael -

Of course you are welcome to join us on Wednesday for the book club. We're reading Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.

It starts at 7:30 pm.

Hope to see you then!

Hello Michael - welcome to the prototype site... plans are afoot to develop a fully formed version for later in the autumn.

I did briefly mention the Woodside Park Jazz picnic in a short forum piece - as the site develops there will be many more opportunities to promote and report on other activities.

Looking Forward to Sunday - hope the weather holds!
