  • The pool at South Harringay school hosts a couple of different groups - I think they are called just swim and tiny swimmers. Also Park Road, though it's hard to get through to them on the phone. Clissold is a bit chilly for babies imo but is goo…
  • A lot of the new places don't seem to be open very regular/extensive hours. I never got to try Gilly's or the new burger place and still haven't tried the Caribbean shack, because they never seem to be open when I'm in the market for that kind of f…
  • I had always thought that A,B and C were separate zones and the permit only entitled you to park in your own zone. Had no idea that that's how it works in Green lanes - why have the division at all?
  • How horrible.
  • PS vans can only go to the Council tip by appointment. Cars can just turn up.
  • It costs quite a bit to dispose of rubbish. A skip is close to £300 for this reason.
  • I do think consistency of stalls is important, though I realise this is a vicious circle. I was keen on the original fish stall and would have returned for that, others mentioned the cheese. Recently they've not been there so I've stopped seeing i…
  • Is that what those were? My 6yo asked and I had no idea. Probably just as well!
  • We will stop by. My daughter attends the nursery and is keen to attend "her" school fair
  • Stroud Green Road itself is red, not just the North circular.
  • I don't know about that. Central London is where the whole map is coloured in yellow/red but there are red and yellow lines criss-crossing all over where we live along pretty much all roads, not just major routes. My daughter's nursery is on a fai…
  • Mine is like this, and has a little picnic bench as well. And I recently learned you can use the bit under the slide platform as a sandpit, though i'd recommend fashioning some sort of cover if you do. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=det…
  • I have that one! It takes quite a bit of space but my children have had so much use out of it, along with countless visiting children. Recommend.
  • Thanks @Ali. This seems to sum up my own observations from living here 2003-present. "Haringey's vital green lung, which had become a wilderness of drug dealing, cruising and vandalism, has now been reappropriated by families and leisure-seekers.…
  • Ah sorry Couchpotato - sloppy wording on my part. My ambivalence to replacement was with regards to the proposed replacement of the playground as I think there's some life left in it - I wasn't aware that there was also proposal to replace the out…
  • Aha well there is to be a waterslide there and I'm all in favour! https://www.tickettailor.com/events/sunslideeventsltd/153451 But in all seriousness I would like to see the following: - Timely litter clearance (very regrettable that this is ne…
  • Ah well that's the trouble with ringfencing - you have to spend it on certain things, even when you have competing priorities for your money. There was a thread on this point a few weeks back. One point of detail though - the former Councillor quo…
  • I'm not convinced it was louder this year. Actually felt quieter in my garden so must have been blowing your way instead. The hoarding is annoying I agree. They've finally demolished my hated out of bounds playground 10 years on, presumably with …
  • The point of a supranational court in other fields is similarly important for individual and collective protection. Take employment rights for example. Yes, we could replicate or even increase European employment rights domestically. But there's …
  • Yes, Strasbourg and Luxembourg courts are different, though often confused, but the same arguments are often used against both - an objection to outside "interference" in national decision-making in the legislative and judicial spheres. But in a H…
  • I have very many emotional attachments to the EU, which I didn't realise were so strong till I actually entered what felt very much like grief post-referendum. A few of them were: A world without borders and the possibilities this opens up in al…
  • I'd love the hosepipe if it's still available please and could collect pretty much any time that's convenient.
  • Does anyone know what the opening times are of this restaurant? Doesn't seem to be open for Sunday lunch, which is a shame, and possibly not weekday lunchtime either.
  • "feel they need to own a car" is a bit telling though, isn't it, and I say that as a car owner. Car driving is artificially cheap compared to public transport because of tax funded infrastructure and that has led to people making unsustainable cho…
  • I'm in the same boat Grenners. Bought my car precisely because of it's supposed eco credentials and low tax but now it turns out to be a cancer vector. But I have 2 young kids growing up in dangerous air and that's more important, frankly. We hav…
  • @greyhounds our paths may have crossed. My eldest was at Rainbow (and the pre-school in the red building) but is now in Y2 at St Aidan's. My youngest is still at Stroud Green nursery but in the younger class.
  • I can recommend this nursery, and it's one of the few Council-run nurseries that open year round 8am-6pm
  • Is that the Eritrean? No, I tried to go on Sunday having heard it opened on the Saturday, but it was closed.
  • Ah to be fair to the Friends, they are on it. https://www.thefriendsoffinsburypark.org.uk/finsbury-park/finsbury-park-events-haringey-council-in-breach-of-statutory-trust/
