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.

*** Please let us know if you did not receive the APN newsletter on Saturday ***

Our usual fortnightly newsletter was emailed to all APN members on Saturday 12th, but some people apparently did not receive it. It would be useful to know how many people did not, so that we can let our software host know, and if necessary re-send it. Note that the newsletter is also available online on the Home page (big blue button on the top left labelled 'Lastest Newsletter'). Please either reply to this post, or send a personal message or email to Admin. Thank you

By trainspotting, I don't mean standing with a notebook noting down the number on the same type of train as they pass by. He…
