Anyone know how to get street lights fixed around here?

Does anyone know how to get a street light repaired? After using Haringey's 'Report a Problem' form to report the same damaged street light many times since before Christmas nothing has happened.

The street light was illuminating the pedestrian crossing on Bounds Green Road right across from Gordon Road. It was damaged by what seems to have been a car accident leaving the lamp post broken in two, the damaged top half of the light was taken away leaving just a stump so there is no lamp post… Continue

New to Bowes & Bounds

Hi everyone,  thanks for including me on the site.  The reason I signed up to this site is that my wife and I are very keen to start up a buisiness in or around the Myddleton Rd area.  We are relatively new to the area and wanted to engage in a community forum to find out about foot traffic, council initiatives towards businesses, typical clientelle, regeneration of the street etc.  I have begun researching the LB of Haringey website and there appears to be a large amount of information…

Request for Help with Video Camera Lost Content!

One of my regulars at the 128 Myddleton Road drop-in for the over 65s every other Thursday, has a problem with his video camera and I’m wondering if anyone on the site can help.

He seems to have lost a huge amount of work and film, over 100 hours, somehow and can’t retrieve from the disc. It’s a Sony Video 125 (he thinks). 

Does that make sense to anyone? Does anyone know if this data can be retrieved somehow because it was painstaking work and a great shame to lose it… Continue

Festively Seeking Susan

Hello all,


Who is Susan I hear you ask? I don't know really but what I do know is that in the New Year I am going to be starting a new blog called Boss from Hell. I'm looking for people to submit stories or be interviewed by me about nightmare bosses they have had.


If you're interested or know anyone that may have a good story, drop me a line.


Merry Christmas all!

Good Neighbourliness, technology, itea and social media surgeries

hi folks,


Just a few ideas about neighbourliness and what we might like to offer/receive. Most of you probably have a lot to offer but not much time that is why we are encouraging even short bits of help to take place as part of good neighbourliness.

You might or might not be a cuppa and chat type of person... you might be more willing and able to do something else.


Age UK have a lot of ideas, events and activities around technology and older people.…

I would like...... Writers' Group Exercise

I Would Like..... by Andie Phillips


I would like to delve into the wet leaves,

feel their wetness,

slippery rounded oak leaves,

immerse my senses in the smell,

musty and sharp.


I would like to enter the wave as it rolls and crashes,

salty stinging,

stopped breath,

flashing foam bubbling.


I would like to crawl into the earth,

crumbling mulch,

meeting worms,…

Tottenham Cake

While sharing a photo of Tottenham Pudding on Twitter recently, a couple of local tweeters mentioned Tottenham Cake to me. It turns out this cake is nothing to do with Chris Morris or something that you give young Spurs fans on their birthdays.

If you, like me, have never heard of it, it is described in this way by Ted Willis (creator of Dixon of Dock…

Launching the site

At the meeting on Monday evening we started thinking about how to launch the site and making 'connections' in the area-thought of going from 128 to The Prince (thai food) to the Ranleagh(don't know how to spell it)-how does that seem in the cold light of day?
