In the run-up to the first Palmers Green local community hub, Enfield Climate Action Forum has published a list of the issues that most concern people. The full timetable for the hub has now been published, along with details of the discussion leaders and the topics.
The agenda has been published for the Palmers Green local community hub on 18th November. It will provide an opportunity for local people to discuss a range of topics - a place where those who attend have a voice and feel free to tell us how we can improve our locality and the lives of people there.
The not-for-profit Palmers Greenery Community Café in Broomfield Park is now in its tenth year and its unique business model not only provides visitors with healthy and ethically produced (but still affordable) food and drinks, but also brings a whole range of other benefits to the park and local community. Just quite how much social impact it has is the subject of a newly published report.
Congratulations to David Williamson (Friends of Broomfield Park), Clare Donovan (Cooking Champions), Cara McDonald (Tatty Bits) and the very many more people who worked hard to make the 2023 Palmers Green Festival such a success.
Francis Sealey, chair of Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCAF), explains the background to the first Palmers Green 'Local Community Hub' - an afternoon and evening event in November bringing communities together to discuss the things that concern them, such as air pollution, social isolation, food insecurity and other issues both big and small.
What delights can we look forward to at the first Palmers Green Festival since 2019, which will be held on Sunday coming, when the forecast is warm but not too hot, sunny but with some cloud, and not too windy?
As always, there will be live music and a DJ at the Bandstand during Sunday's Palmers Green Festival. This year the music stage is being organised by Clare Donovan of the wonderful food charity Cooking Champions that is doing so much to feed hungry residents and to revive the once widespread art of home cooking.
