Enfield increase in waste collection for residents
Enfield have published changes to their refuse collection procedure. Please click here to open a pdf with the letter in a new window. You will see that they will take away additional rubbish over and above what you can fit in your bin which we will be a great help in light of the increased rubbish produced by each household during this period of self-isolation and their recent switch to fortnightly collections.
Winchmore Hill is one of the Sunday Times’s 10 Best Places to Live in London
Winchmore Hill featured in the Sunday Times’s supplement that came out on the 22nd March covering the 100 Best Places to Live in the UK and was one of ten places featured in London. Winchmore Hill, we know is a great place to live but until recently it never got the recognition that some of the established places get who are also featured in the top 10 such as Ealing, Highbury, Muswell Hill and of course the up and coming places like Bermondsey, Walthamstow and Victoria Park. Some people of course might feel there are benefits to not being acknowledged as a place people want to live and being known only to people familiar with the furthest reaches of North London but it is still nice that the qualities of this area that we all appreciate are being recognised. The WHRA hopes that the work it has done and plans for the future will further enhance all the great things about this area that contributed to its inclusion in this article, we hope you feel this pride we have and will support our work in the future to make this area even more attractive for all who live here.
