I was at that demo!
The one portraying Lynne Featherstone as death is actually my better half. She's only gone and kept that bloody mask, though - it's bloody terrifying when you find it suddenly, possibly under the influence of something
Well played, Missus Merlin!
Yup, that's my gal - a right little shit-stirrer.
The Morrisons self-service checkout tills are a disaster. After 13 years of loyal shopping, I've found myself walking out the store twice in the last month.
Are Morrisons aware just how bad these things are? Do they care?
Please support The Big Green Bookshop if you can - they might be going under - they are asking that people buy a book next week to help them out
Is that the shop in the side road? Think I looked in there once.
It's very, very difficult for small bookshops to keep going these days - too much competition from Amazon etc.
yeah they are v cool in there and it would be shit if they went cos then we would only have whsmiths which is nasty
Lolo do you know them? The problem is no one is buying books from WHSmith or Big Green Bookshop with the recession.
If they're serious and want people to defend them from eviction, I'm sure people would help.
By curious coincidence, Lynne Featherstone looked pretty deathly when local activists picketed an event of hers recently
This is important for Wood Green, seriously there should be public information about NHS cuts in every corner of Wood Green:
Organised by the Better Local Healthcare Campaign supported by HAPS Haringey Alliance for Public Services aka 'the Alliance' aka a chance to defend our jobs and our country for people in Haringey.
Oh if its still there I'll go in and buy one, on another note I was in Morrisons yesterday and an employee was doling out reduced food through a gap next to the veg to like a scrum of twenty or so jostling shoppers scrabbling for bargains, it was fucking horrifying I was staring for ages until I went in and got two bags of spuds for 18p.
well done sihhi, I'm no longer in the alliance as I now work from home in Leyton, but PLEASE all Haringey residents do attend - these are your services being decimated
I see Wood Green has been selected to be the flagship location for the new 'easygym' fitness concept.
Pretty exciting, and exceptional value at £13.99 a month, or £17,99 after 4 months.
And give up skin bleaching levels of chlorine and infectious skin diseases that my Haringey leisure pass affords me, never.
I dunno about Haringey leisure, this place is 10 minutes walk away. Though I'm not too sure about the orange "easy" branding.. be abit of a sterile environment, I figure.
High street renovation looking impressive today, I like the open plan concept.
None of it looks so impressive now.
OK...calling all altruistic residents of the london borough of Haringey.
frogwoman and I are visiting the tottenham green leisure centre on Phillip lane on monday evening. That's the nerve centre for
http://www.riotcleanup.co.uk/index.php. ALL welcome - brin what you can
we none of us are responsible for the devastatation that has been visited on London: We ARE - all of us, every last one - responsible for the social and economic conditions that drove those people to riot
The Morrison's Local is a welcome addition to the high street. Though I couldn't help noticing that the main Morrison's main supermarket seemed very understaffed on Friday night.
Exciting times in Shopping City. A new pavement widening scheme is in progress. Having lived here 17 years, I fondly remember the first pavement widening scheme from 2002.
"Pavements are being widened, more pedestrian crossings and better lighting is being installed, and the road will be raised in several areas in a bid to reduce driving speeds and prioritise pedestrians at junctions.
New bus shelters will be installed along the High Road, with some stops relocated, and more new signage, new bicycle stands, trees, plants and “green walls” will appear."
"Can we move this thread to the Brixton forum?
Always thought it was odd it wasn't"
Don't you bloody dare
Starts campaign for new "Tottenham, Wood Green and Harringay" forum
*post reported - wrong forum*
Rapidly following on the footsteps of pret a manger, a branch of Foxtons is opening up this month. Interesting times.
A game-changer in the history of Wood Green - the release of the Wood Green Area Action Plan and a new vision for Wood Green.
This could mean the end of Shopping City, (as we know it).
Attended a 'drop-in' session in Morrison's supermarket this evening.
Verbal confirmation from a housing officer that Shopping City could be turned to dust.
Also seems the Council Offices opposite the tube will be subject to change of use: though I'm not clear if the intention is to knock them down as well.
40th anniversary of the 'Battle of Wood Green' on 23rd April. Was oblivious to the history here...
In a very exciting discovery today, I was checking out early Jethro Tull gig timelines while waiting for the Breeders to come on stage at the Roundhouse. Much to my surprise I discover that the newly formed Tull played 2 gigs in Wood Green back in 1968 before hitting the big time.
The venue in question being the now closed 'Fishmonger's Arms'
The following link shows a vintage history up until the mid-70s. Sadly all closed down now, though I believe the Fishmonger's is still standing unlike the Nightingale.
