Annabel Gregory replied to Rachael Booth's forum post Petition for new public pool for Haringey
"When we moved here, many years ago, I was amazed at the lack of swimming pools around here - and the number of pools that had closed recently. Wood Green definitely needs one, and this should have been included in the Area Action Plan."

Petition for new public pool for Haringey

Hi all. My daughter swims for Haringey Aquatics at Park Road, Crouch End. I swim there too as does my son who has weekly lessons there with his primary school.  Haringey Aquatics have launched a petition to campaign for a third pool in Haringey to be located in Wood Green.  Two public pools serving a borough this size is not adequate as anyone who uses Park Road can probably testify.  There is a statutory requirement for primary school children to be taught to swim but with only two pools in…

Leah a Collie cross needs a home

Leah is a 10 year old female Collie cross who has come to All Dogs Matter because her previous owner was made homeless.

Leah is a sweet and affectionate dog, who enjoys a cuddle. She’s had some…

Some Grand Jazz at Karamel Cafe

On Thursday night we went to the End of Season Jam Session of Jazz@Karamel, and enjoyed it hugely. We are not regular jazz-goers, but this was really worth-while, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes jazz and doesn't know the venue, or who has a broad taste in music generally. Members of several bands who've played here recently were present, and the number gradually increased as the evening went on. Some young, some more weathered, but all extremely accomplished, and the shere…
