ENFIELD TRADE ALLIANCE ASKS ENFIELD COUNCIL TO LISTEN TO COMMON SENSE

on Wednesday, 14 March 2012. Posted in Latest News

Print

 

 

 

 

Southgate furniture retailer Vic Smith is upping the pressure on Enfield Council to listen to local businesses and residents, following concerns that the Council will ignore the recent parking petition, which has collection hundreds of signatures across the borough.

 

Launching a dedicated website today Vic is calling for Enfield Council to allow people to park for free for 30 minutes, on our local shopping parades, in a move which is widely anticipated to be very popular with the residents of Enfield and encourage them to stop and shop.

 

Idea for parking strategy in Enfield Town

To quote VIc, "Now this would make Enfield a far nicer friendlier place to park and shop. We all know if you shop and the assistant in the shop is friendly you are more likely to buy. Well take a step back if you can’t park near the friendly shop then the friendly shop is useless because their customer base has been taken away from them.

 

Kill parking, kill local traders, kill local jobs , kill the local economy which will kill Enfield - is this what you want? If not, act now - be positive and we as a borough can not only survive but prosper".

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR NEW SUPPORT GROUP FOR THE NORTH LONDON HOSPICE DAYCARE CENTRE

on Friday, 17 February 2012. Posted in Latest News

Print

 

 

 

Volunteers are needed to help set up a fundraising and support group for the new North London Day Services, which opens in May.

 

This new £6m state-ofthe-art day service will support people suffering from terminal illness; providing not just pain management and palliative care but a host of complementary therapies (e.g. reflexology, massage), exercise, physiotherapy, and art and music therapies.

 

The North London Hospice (which celebrates its 28th anniversary this year) is holding a special week to showcase its work (27 Feb – 4 Mar) and would like to invite people who could be potentially interested in joining a support group to visit the site of the new Daycare Centre, in Barrowell Green on

 

Friday, March 2nd at 9am.

 

It will be a chance to meet some of the team, including the Daycare Service's new manager, Anneli Beesley.

 

For health & safety reasons (the builders are still on site) the visit must be by invite only. Therefore if you are interested in finding out more email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in the frst instance.

 

If you could potentially be interested in joining the support group but are unable to make the meeting, please get in touch, so that yo can be included on the contact list.

 

 

In a press release to announce Anneli's appointment, she says “We can’t wait to get started, we’re very proud of the new building and we’re hoping to reach many more people who need us from across Barnet, Haringey and Enfield".

 

North London Hospice has launched its new charity appeal, called Hospice 100 – and Chief Executive Douglas Bennett is hoping the local communities (including Winchmore Hill) will show support.

 

“Many people don’t know that North London Hospice is a charity,” said Douglas. “The majority of our money comes through fundraising - less than 25% comes from the NHS. These are tough economic times, but we can go from strength to strength with this new facility to complement our established services in Barnet.

 

“The Hospice 100 appeal and our other fundraising activities in 2012 will help us develop our specialist end-of-life care for our inpatients at Woodside Park, our day care visitors in Enfield, and for thousands of people in their own homes.”

 

There are many ways to get involved and help support the charity’s specialist services. Please call 020 8446 2288 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Other facts about the North London Hospice

 

NLH is a charity – 77 per cent of our costs are met through fundraising, while the NHS funds the other 23 per cent

 

The hospice cares for about 1,350 patients a year and we also support their families and their carers

 

Two thirds of patients are cared for in their own homes by the hospice’s own specialist community nurses - most patients want to be cared for at home and the hospice does everything it can to make this possible through its community nursing team

 

Last year the hospice cared for 900 patients in the community, 300 inpatients at the hospice in Barnet, and 150 patients through day services

 

NLH relies on the local communities of Enfield, Haringey and Barnet to fund its specialist care – the hospice is always looking for new business partners

ENFIELD COUNCIL CRIME SURVEY

on Friday, 03 February 2012. Posted in Latest News

Print

 

 

Enfield Council and police are urging residents to complete this year's Crime Survey and help the borough make sure its resources are being directed at the right types of crime and anti-social behaviour.

 

The results of the borough's Crime Survey will help to shape the work that Enfield's key organisations undertake to tackle crime in the borough over the next year.

 

 

 

 

 

On the Council website it is reported that overall, crime in Enfield has dropped in the last 12 months with gun crime halving, violent crime dropping four per cent, robbery down ten per cent, rape down nearly six per cent and other sexual offences dropping by 13 per cent.

 

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Community Safety Cllr Christine Hamilton, said: "I'm very pleased that together with the police we are bringing crime down in Enfield, but we are never complacent and we know we have to continue working really hard to make our borough even safer.

 

"This survey gives residents the chance to tell us what crimes and anti-social behaviour they think we should be focusing our efforts on so I'd urge people to log on and take the time to get involved in our fight against crime in Enfield."

 

Chief Inspector Ian Kibblewhite, Safer Neighbourhoods Lead for Enfield Police said: "We are very keen to hear the views of Enfield's communities  on how they are affected by crime and  anti-social behaviour. Reported crime was down again last year and we are concentrating this year on residential burglary,  serious  youth vi violence and  domestic violence and  hate  crime. This survey is the ideal opportunity for everyone to provide feedback on what concerns them in their area. "

The closing date is February 29th.

 

PROPOSED TRAFFIC CALMING SCHEME IN WINCHMORE HILL

Enfield Council is conducting a consultation precess about the introduction of new 20 mile zones, which will involve speed humps, in a number of parts of the Borough, including Winchmore Hill. Whilst the objectives are laudable, to improve road safety and encourage more parents and children to walk to school, a number of residents and councillors are concerned that it is proposed to create a very large zones involving the installation of road humps/ cushions on every residential road in the zone.

WINCHMORE HILL RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION: UPDATE ON PROPOSED WORKS ON THE GREEN

on Thursday, 12 January 2012. Posted in Latest News

Print

 

Discussion on the Association’s proposals for The Green, Winchmore Hill, under the Residents Priority Fund has continued and we felt it could be useful to explain the background and rationale behind the original proposals.


Historically The Green was a common working area upon which tradesmen parked their carts and carried out their business.  The eastern part of The Green was almost totally covered by the village pond but at about the turn of the century this was filled in and the whole area enclosed by high railings and laid out inside with paths, seats, flower beds and a fountain as a central feature.  The section of The Green which is the subject of the Association’s proposals was part of the garden of a large house, Roseville, behind a high brick wall at the back edge of the current pavement.  Why and how the boundaries were changed we don’t know.

 

A number of people currently working and living in and around The Green have expressed their concern in recent years on the commercial viability of the shops around The Green and the need to introduce more activity to attract people from a wider catchment area.  One of the legacies of the N21 Festival and one of the major aims of the now sadly defunct Winchmore Hill Green Traders Association was the introduction of a monthly market.

 

It was with this idea in mind and the resurgence of different activities that this area was suggested to be paved to withstand the more intensive use. In other words the paving was introduced to give another dimension to the possible activities on The Green, limited only to shopkeeper’s imagination, to help The Green to become more commercially alive and not just remain a bland open space providing a foreground to the enclosing buildings which have little architectural merit. The paving would also eliminate any need for future maintenance which was understood to be a prerequisite of The Priority Fund.  The introduction of bicycle racks of a selected design in this context would have been virtually unnoticed.

 

However the Priority Fund Panel requested us to substitute the paving with grass in order to reduce costs.  Some residents considered this more appropriate although there were no historical grounds for this.

 

At this time, because of the change in surfacing, the Association should have reconsidered the overall effects more fully. Owing to the need to lay either a form of paving or reinforce the grass in the area associated with the bicycle racks this element inevitably would have become visually more dominant.

 

In our opinion every effort should be made to encourage the use of bicycles and we feel more racks should be provided at all stations.  In this instance owing to the changed circumstances we are now proposing the removal of the bicycle racks from the area and supplementing those in Station Road as part of the Fund works.

 

The proposals will therefore now include the retention of all mature trees with thinning and lifting of their crowns, the removal of self-sown saplings and undergrowth, the levelling of the surface and re-seeding with grass.  The introduction of ground cover in selected areas, the repair and removal of brick edging, the provision of two hardwood seat benches and associated paving and the repair of notice boards.
