Haringey's last nursing home for frail elederly people is being closed by the Haringey Cabinet decision of last December, yet the Scrutiny Panel of the Council, relatives of residents, and those who took part in a long consultation exercise have all said this should be paused at very least until the options of future functions for this very well designed and located site are considered. This will now not be until after the May elections, when a different decision is anticipated - to keep the…

I currently run my private counselling practice from rooms close to Bounds Green tube and Bowes Park underground, a location which works well for many clients. I need to find new premises by the end of March - please contact me if you know of a quiet private room for rent where I could see clients on two days (probably Tuesday and Friday) and one evening (Wednesday) a week.

Many thanks,

Susie Ward

Some Transparencies of Spring

Some transparencies of Spring

Some of my hopes have air in them -

Polluting and renewing;

They are inhabited by light breezes and hurricanes

Erratically, like prayer flags

On a Himalayan hillside;

A photon spectrum like daggers and gifts, like galaxies.


My hopes grow quietly after winter chills;

So many bulbs gently budding through cold earth

Trigger my cynical self, as I hold down the…

Cairngorms Bird Song

A mass of granite thrust up

Through the schists and gneiss of lower hills;

Planed down by the ice cap;

Split, shattered and scooped

By frosts, glaciers and the strength of running water.


Its strong flight haunts not precipice, but plateau –

One summer day, your ear catches the plover-like cry –

You pause and watch – no bird is there;

You move softly towards the sound,

And in a moment, one bird, then another,
