While monitoring the news, we often come across famous people who come from, or have some connection to Wood Green
Here's our latest:
Speaking of famous Wood Greenies, we've got a small Noel Park history group going that is researching former residents, looking for any who may be blue plaque worthy, so if you know of any, please share!
Haringey First World War Peace Forum has a list of all the WW1 Conscientious Objectors who lived in Haringey. Altogether there were 350, more than in any other UK borough, amongst these men were ten who lived in Noel Park. You can find their names and brief biographies at: https://hfwwpf.wordpress.com
There's news of the linked Heritage Lottery Funded project, Conscientious Objection Remembered, at https://conscientiousobjectionremembered.wordpress.com. Members of the group would be happy to talk to your group about the project and resistance to conscription in the first world war.
Thank you. This is very interesting and deserves its own post.
