We’re having a short meeting this Saturday to make our bank account application official. Come along for a coffee now that Abs is open on Saturdays. Any other ideas/concerns about the neighbourhood all welcome.
Come along! Let’s help campaign against rat-running (Ringslade Rd) and for School Streets (Bradley)!
A date for your diary
Saturday 13th July
More details to follow nearer to the time.
Great turnout to our meeting on Friday about ideas to improve our streets. Thanks to everyone attending and those who posted ideas via email and facebook.
The ideas discussed were;
Tree Planting – Two trees to be planted in Bradley Road to replace the ones that died there.
Pavement Planters – Where there is space on pavements – eg. Junction of Ringslade Road and Cumberland – to brighten up the area. Also mini planters around the base of roadside trees.
Decorated Junction Boxes – Brightening up those dreary green junction boxes with brightly coloured stencils.
Litter Pickers – So we can organise our own ‘street ‘clean-up’ days
Book Swap Box – Our own neighbourhood Book Swap Box sited on one of our streets.
Decorative Street Signs – Street signs with local logo or decoration on them.
Street Mural – Maybe a long-term aim given the need to find site and get design approved – could really make a difference locally.
Community Garden – Bid to take over small garden area at the side of Wood Green Works and improve its appearance.
The Railway Cottages Residents Association Xmas Social
We’d love for as many young ones to be there so we’ve arranged a special pre-Christmas visit of Santa early on in the evening. So for those coming with children if you’d like to bring a small wrapped present (maybe an upper limit of £5) – we’ll make sure it goes in Santa’s sack.
FRIDAY 21ST DECEMBER
Venue – Wood Green Social Club
Details to follow….
Save the date! Hope to see you all there.
On the ‘Council Plans and Documents’ page are two campaign guides from the London Cycling Campaign about LOW TRAFFIC NEIGHBOURHOODS – what they are, how to campaign for them and some mythbusters about what happens to traffic if you block a rat run. If you’ve got the time they make interesting reading – they’re a useful guide for residents and local policy makers.
