"Hi Ellen,
What about The Maid of Muswell or Victoria Stakes?  Maybe Zebra Ceramics.   I keep thinking of Owens but they sell veg so probably wouldn't want to.

Our Streets beyond Covid - whole-ward meeting on Saturday 17th October at 3pm

Travel habits are changing. More people working from home, yet more cars on the roads; less use of public transport, more children driven to school. Could our streets be made more people-friendly - healthier, safer, quieter and more accessible for children and the infirm? Or do the disadvantages of change outweigh the benefits? Join other residents to explore the issues in Alexandra Ward at our whole-ward meeting on 17th October at 3-5pm via Zoom. Free tickets will be available via Eventbrite…

Covid updates from Haringey Council

The Council has just posted some quite succinct details of the current state of the covid regulations and the recent changes, which I find a bit clearer than what's in the press. https://www.haringey.gov.uk/news-and-events/haringey-coronavirus-covid-19-updates There's also a statement from the Director of Public Health about rising hospital admissions https://www.haringey.gov.uk/news/covid-19-hospital-admissions-warns-haringeys-director-public-health Hope this is useful.

The prospect of going back to work on public transport – used in normal circumstances by most working people in AP, I believe – must be daunting  for many as we come out of lockdown, and not only for those who are in some respects vulnerable, or who have vulnerable relatives at home. With TfL limiting passenger numbers to 15% of the usual volume, how are all these people going to travel? And there'll be more parents joining the commuters in a couple of weeks time as…

The Council is consulting on proposals to introduce pedal cycle parking sheds in our local roads.  The impact on parking is low but nevertheless there will be a loss of parking places which is unnecessary.  There are some times of day (and some days of the week) when parking is very difficult and any unnecessary loss of spaces should be challenged.  The cycle parking can be located on the kerb build-outs at junctions or where the footway is sufficiently wide that they would not cause…
