A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
You may have seen that a professional team have taken the roof off Shaftesbury Hall. This has been done to prevent squatters returning to the site whilst we apply to Big Lottery to refurbish the site.
The contractors were masked and suited when removing the asbestos. They have informed us that all the asbestos was removed in a day and hoses were sprayed on to the panels.
For the timber cladding the contractors informed us they didn't need to wear suits as there was no…Continue
North London Samaritans are looking for a new voluntary Treasurer - someone with an accountancy background.
The treasurer will be a support volunteer, so not involved in directly supporting callers, and will be a trustee of the charity.

A lost cat has found me and I am looking to find his/her (probably his) home.
He is a young (6 months to a year?), long-haired, black and white cat. Found in the Queen's Road area of Bounds Green. Do you know anyone who has lost a cat recently? Very friendly and domesticated. Will sit for ages watching the washing go round in the washing machine!…

Shrugging off the worn leather jacket, he hung it on the chair back, sat down, and comfort stroked his thin white moustache. Pot of tea. Tiny jug of milk. So different to the semi-stewed 6 pence a cuppa tea of the sixties. Blue Boar inn used to run it. We thought we were it back then: guitars, sideburns, drainpipe jeans. Cold draughty vans, swapping drivers to stay awake. Polo mints all night. It wasn’t all bad though - this was the place, the middle ground, this ‘no man’s…Continue

Albert Road Recreation Ground on Durnsford Rd is a wonderfully well-used sports facility with a community cafe.
There’s now a new project to regenerate the old Bowling Green and Hut, (hidden behind a hedge at the back of the Pavilion) and give it a new lease of life. Not as an old-fashioned bowls club but instead Bare-foot Bowling, BBQ & Beer – a facility with no dress code and open to all. In the long run we plan to give the bowling green an all weather…Continue

HERE FILM FESTIVAL is about the diversity of interests, people and places in the suburbs of London. HERE is not in the West End, Southbank or Shoreditch. HERE in the suburbs we aren't the swanky super-rich, the celebrity glitterati or bearded hipsters. HERE is where the cinema creatives of London produce…Continue

Couldn't find a Lost & Found section, so please direct elsewhere if necessary - I have a neighbor who is frantic as her cat went missing yesterday from Stanley Road, N11. I have scanned a photo I could upload, if I could figure out how. Meanwhile, as I lost my own household deity a while back I totally sympathise with her - it's even worse as her Net is down and she can't get a teckie to fix it until 4th, so I've been posting for her on Animal Rescue…Continue

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…Continue
