The Great British Biscuit Bake Off comes to N16!!

Our annual winter party will be on Wednesday 9th December, and we'll have games, chat, party hat-making and... The Great British Biscuit Bake-Off 2015!

The party starts at 8pm. Mulled wine provided. Please bring a plate of food to share.

Hat-makers, also bring a couple of sheets of Christmas wrapping paper. Don't bother with the thick, expensive kind: it doesn't mould well. For hat-making, we need the cheap stuff. 

Biscuit makers, please bring your homemade biscuits before 9pm. Our mystery judge will do her stuff between 9 and 9.30pm.

 8pm, 62 Allen Road. All Welcome!

Albion Grove Footpath - meeting on 4 November
As a result of our meeting in September about assaults in and near the Albion Grove Footpath, we have significantly improved visibility, litter and safety in the area. 

Please come to a quick follow-up meeting on Wednesday 4th November to discuss what more can be done e.g. 
  • should we request cycle barriers?
  • can we make the area less attractive to drug dealers?
  • is it possible to remove the railings around the former school (55 Albion Grove) to make it safer for pedestrians?
  • what safety features can be incorporated in the forthcoming re-development of 55 Albion Grove?
The meeting will be on Wednesday 4th November from 5.30-6.15pm in the Londesborough Pub.
