Friends of Arnos Park

friends of arnos parkThe Friends of Arnos Park are local residents who work hard to ensure that the park continues to be a well maintained and safe place of recreation for the whole community. We lobby the London Borough of Enfield and work with them to improve the tidiness of the park, increase its bio diversity and fundraise for improvements. Our work includes some maintenance of flowerbeds, pruning of trees and shrubs and landscaping work.

Sadly, as budgetary constraints increasingly restrict the amount of resources provided by local authorities to parks, the work of Friends groups becomes more and more essential to maintain and improve them.

We plan to stage several fun events each year and hope you will join us in working together to make our park an even better place. If you have any suggestions please contact us:

If you are interested in becoming involved as a volunteer or even as a committee member, we would love to hear from you.

friends of pymmes park logo

Friends of Pymmes Park are a team of volunteers who love Pymmes Park so much that they give their time freely to ensure the health and welbeing of the park is maintained and made safe for the many animals as well as the various people who enjoy it.

It is their hope that more people, young, old and inbetween, will come and visit, care for and enjoy the park as much as Friends of Pymmes Park do.

Because of various cutbacks and financial shortages to care for the park, it is up to everyone to understand what is needed for such a special park as Pymmes.

New Southgate Millennium Green

logoNew Southgate is a fully urban Green, being in London, next to a busy road and a high-rise estate. New Southgate is, like most urban Greens, quite small, at 0.6 Hectares/1.4 Acres. As of 2020 the Green is still fully independent, with a community-run trust and no regular funding from the local authority. There is a regular park with swings and things almost next door, so the Trust intends to focus on being a countryside haven, with high hedges and tall trees to block out the outside world as much as feasible.

North London Citizens

northlondoncitizensNorth London Citizens is a powerful alliance of schools and universities, churches, mosques and synagogues that has been built to take action together for the common good of our local area and beyond.

Citizens UK is a powerful alliance of local Community Organising groups in London, Milton Keynes, Nottingham & Birmingham. We bring together churches, mosques and synagogues; schools, colleges and universities; unions, think-tanks and housing associations; GP surgeries, charities and migrant groups to work together for the common good.

We develop the capacity of our members to build power locally so they can hold politicians and other decision makers to account. We work on both small local campaigns and large national campaigns from asking for a Green Man crossing in west London to calling for a Living Wage, from persuading Newham council to put up a street sign to developing CitySafe across the capital.

Community Organising is about building power and participating in democracy: being realistic in what we demand and winning key victories to improve the lives of disadvantaged communities across the country.

We Love Myddleton Road

we love myddleton roadA new community campaign group has been formed to help protect and promote Myddleton Road - one of Bowes Park's most important and unique assets.

WE LOVE MYDDLETON ROAD works alongside the Bowes Park Community Association and the existing Myddleton Road Strategy Group to complement the work these groups have been doing for many years.  It was formed by concerned residents and traders wanting to see more regeneration on the road and protection for its valuable shops and buildings.

The group's focus is to find ways for the whole community, both residents and traders, to play their part in building a better future for
this much loved road – that means anything from running events like a “Cash Mob” to encourage more people to shop locally, to promoting the road and its businesses or talking to the council about how we can support the needs of existing traders.
The group is also trying to stop further decline of this unique road by reporting dumped rubbish and objecting to unwanted planning applications.

It meets monthly and is looking for new members to help build on all the positive change already happening on the road.  To get involved or to be kept up to date email or follow them on Twitter @welovemyddleton.
