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.
