A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
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…Continue

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.

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…Continue

I highly recommend a visit to Bruce Castle to see Gabriela's panaramic drawings of Myddleton Road.
Such detail and precision has to been seen in person to be appreciated. What a positive contribution to our community.
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,

If you don't need me,
as much as I want you,
why do I see my hopes
like a hundred prayer flags
on a Himalayan hillside?

Confessions of a Middle Aged Girl
We met at the retreat, friends at first.
Casual conversations, weeding organic vegetables.
Occasional weekenders, just friends.
You were slightly younger, tall, dark, attractive
In an ugly way. Kind words. Common sense.
Good hugs, but friends, just friends.
Then one weekend it changed: or I changed.
Friday as usual, Saturday transition,
Sunday I was…Continue
