Consultation about the changes to the Green
There has been no word from Enfield about what the results were to the consultation concerning the proposed changes to the Green. We will be chasing this with Enfield and asking councillors to put pressure on Enfield to share the outcome of this consultation as soon as possible.
Application for funding to the Enfield Neighbourhood Fund
We have made an application for funding to implement all or some of the proposals that were shared at the recent Annual General Meeting October. Our architect and planning rep Niki-Marie has done some amazing drawings and really used her experience and passion for how the built environment can create integrated and well thought out communal spaces to bring this vision to life. Our design and communications rep Neil also did a fantastic job of bringing Niki-Marie’s drawings and his own design skills together to create a very compelling and inspiring document that accompanied our application. The decisions process we understand takes a while but we will let you know when we have some news.
Next General Meeting
We mentioned the date at the end of the Annual General Meeting but please put the 9th March in your diary as the date for our next General Meeting. It will take place from 7.30pm in the usual venue which is the Waterhouse Hall which is behind the United Reform Church in Compton Road just before the railway bridge on the left hand side.
Lloyd’s Pharmacy to close in Sainsbury’s Winchmore Hill
It seems and it is not clear to us the exact reasons why but Lloyd’s Pharmacy has decided to close 237 branches in Sainsbury’s stores across the UK and Winchmore Hill branch will be closing. It is not clear when but the timescales seem to suggest within the next six months. This will be a blow to people who need regular prescriptions or otherwise and need to get it at times when other local pharmacies are not open. If you getting medication at this pharmacy speak to them about making sure you know your options as and when they close.
Big thank you to local businesses
The Christmas tree on the Green over Christmas was a very welcome addition and something we will do again this year, possibly bigger and probably one with roots that will be planted and will grow year on year so that we don’t need to buy one annually. A big thank your to Neil Littman for organising this incredibly quickly and also to the businesses around the Green that contributed to it, Buckle and Vaughan, Hopper and Bean, The Larder, Agha Homes, Havilands Estate Agents, Going Greek, Fullers Estate Agents and The Green Convenience Store.
