    3) If not, what would you say you use the area for (name all that apply)

    In your opinion, what word or phrase best describes Finsbury park?

    How could Finsbury park be improved?

    Somewhat Yes No

    Hello! I teach at number of primary schools in the area through Arts First Islington CIC. So, that includes Pooles Park, Duncombe, Pakeman in the very close vicinity. Are you a music-maker of which sorts? :)

      Of the retired sort, Julia! I taught at Pooles Park, too, for 3 years, voluntarily. Recorder. Stopped Easter 2013. Did you know Mark Tinkler? I also accompanied for his PP Community Choir.

      Before that, recorder, singing, class music generally, at many primary schools in Islington, Hackney, Tower Hamlets. Now much involved with University of the 3rd Age, teaching and learning.
