Noel Park People: Local gardening hero featured in Haringey people

You may have noticed all the daffodils that sprout up every spring in Russell Park. They are the work of our Noel Park neighbour Floyd who marshalls fellow residents to plant dozens, if not hundreds of bulbs every year. He also plants vegetables among the traditional types of plants we're used to seeing in parks, along with trees, roses and all sorts of greenery.

Floyd is featured in Haringey People this month in recognition of the volunteer work he's done to green up Russell Park and…

Noel Park Primary School: Flower Boxes for Railings

Hi All,

I just wanted to let you know about a project that I' am overseeing via the Noel Park Big Local: Green Spaces Project. Noel Park Primary School, located on Gladstone Avenue and Lymington Avenue. Outside the school, on the pavement are metal railings. I had the idea of installing flower box planters to the railings. I have done a lot of research and found a suitable planter. It contains a reservoir and therefore eliminates the need for constant watering!

I have met with…

Councils can do this by choosing to conduct a count or submitting an intelligence-based estimate of the number of people rough sleeping on a typical night. Haringey have decided that this year they…

Fireworks don't have to be ear splitting to be fun. We can enjoy them in safety, without causing annoyance to our neighbours and their pets and wildlife. If you have your own firework display, remember that too much noise can frighten people and animals and that fireworks cause smoke and pollution.

Give neighbours a few days notice of…

Picking up rat food on a Saturday morning

The empty lot on the corner of Lordship Lane and Moselle attracts a  particular type of flytipping. In addition to the typical fare of mattresses, broken furniture and bags full of rubbish somebody is leaving piles of bread, rice and meat for the rats. 

After a combination of rainy and hot days this week was particularly bad. Despite multiple reports Veolia was slow to pick it up so Ted and I took the matter into our own hands. Armed with plastic gloves and a shovel, we picked up a…

Yesterday on the corner of Hewitt and Darwin  I am taking a picture of some dumped rubbish on the Haringey app and a guy says what are you doing that for? So I tell him "oh you are one of those, you are a snitch"   "no" I reply .. So I tell him if everyone does their part then maybe we can make the area better. Fail... I do  not think I convinced him.


Telling the council were there is dumped rubbish is considered "snitching????".... Ahhh Haaa this is…

Rat runs

Hello all,

Please feel sorry for Moselle Avenue, Noel Park. Google maps have advertised it as a rat-run for HGV's, trucks, lorries, buses, vans and convoys of cars coming off the A109 Lordship Lane. After all,  it is so easy isn't it to drive down Moselle Avenue rather than staying on the A roads except for access.  Our poor house shudders and jolts.....

Yes, the council know this.

A social History of Noel Park at the Haringey Local History fair

Here's Jo at our Social history of Noel Park exhibit. It was a great day made possible by volunteers Victorine and Jo.

Thanks to Victorine I was able to go to a lecture at the event for the first time ever!

Without Jo, the exhibit wouldn't have made it to the event. She missed her tennis lesson to transport the exhibit to and from Bruce Castle and stayed at the…
