Welcome to the community website of Alexandra Park neighbourhood in London. Our aim is to encourage interaction, both online and in person, between local people in Alexandra Park and surrounding neighbourhoods, as well as providing a channel for local information. Use it to discuss local issues, find out about local events and post your own events, create a group, recycle items …

We would like discussions to be constructive and wide-ranging enough for all members to feel comfortable using the site, providing a space for everybody who would like to take part. So if something is not being talked about which you think should be, start a new discussion!  For more information, see About the Site.

Tiny Timmy a blind Yorkshire Terrier needs a home

Meet Tiny Timmy, a little 12 year old Yorkshire Terrier who was abandoned at a vets surgery. All Dogs Matter think that he might have been left there because he is blind and pretty much deaf. His hair was matted, his eyes had thick gunk stuck in them and his nails were overgrown. Timmy enjoys being outside and although he was a little stressed when he first arrived in his temporary foster home, he is now making the most of his new garden!  He sleeps well through the night and loves his bed!  He…

They need permanent homes - as you know, the life span of a cat is approximately 20 years. Please get in touch with Stokey Cats and Dogs if you are interested in adopting…
