I'm afraid I told a small lie when I registered for the forum. I listed my address as Arundel Gardens in N21. In fact that was my last address back in 1969, after that I stayed at Truro road. I was a regular at Fishmongers Arms and Springfield Park Tavern. I now live in a village called Crowhurst, near Battle in East Sussex. I still have strong memories of the area having worked at Express Motors and a spell as Road Sweeper.
Thanks Richard - not living in the area yet but we hope to be soon! Have been spending many Saturday mornings in The Step in between flat viewings! We love the area, I'll be keeping an eye on this site for sure. Choir & folk club sound awesome!
I recently moved to Bowes Park and absolutely love the place, and the great community vibe here !
I am a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, and am looking forward to playing my first solo gig @ MUMS on Thursday August 20th, 8-10PM. It's a FREE GIG, YEAH!! And I hope some of you guys will be coming down to check out my music!
Hi Richard, your article on rail services affecting Bowes Park was very interesting and great news for the area! I'm moving in hopefully by end of August and I'm really looking forward to being an active part of the community. I'm moving from Crouch End - was going to move into a flat there (for a ridiculous price) - when I decided to have a look at Bowes Park. I love the feel of the area but have issues about the men loitering on the side streets and around the New River path - came across one who was relieving himself on a fence. I would love to find a way to discourage this; perhaps through the forum we can collectively come up with some ideas.
Thanks for welcoming me onto the site which looks terrific.
As a local writer and artist based at the Chocolate Favtory, I want to invite local people to my book launch at the Big Green Bookshop, Woodgreen. I also want to tell them that the book is coming out on the 16 July. Shall I add an event?
