While we admire and support the Christmas campaigns that we see pop up in December, we also know that help is urgently needed all year round, each and every year. As some people pack away after the festive break, we are still here.
Our support is not limited to a food package, but it leaps beyond - we form connections, we listen and respond to everyone who steps through our doors. We open up a warm, safe, environment which aims to feel like a home away from home.
For us to continue to thrive and grow, and keep supporting as many people as possible, we are asking you to become a Friend of Cooking Champions. Even a donation of just £5-10 per month can make a HUGE impact on the lives of those who come through our doors.
Pop to our People's Fundraising page to donate, and we promise to keep you updated with how your support is making a difference. Thank you, we appreciate you! Team Cooking Champions
Images of two crashes in Palmers Green this week. How can we put an end to reckless driving? Why is it not at the top of the police's priorities? Why do magistrates award such lenient sentences to people who endanger the public?

Civic-minded PG citizens were out in the rain on Tuesday afternoon replacing more than 30 wayward signs for a one-way system which had somehow detached themselves from their supporting frames and gathered together in huddles on the pavement in Lightcliffe Road and near the end of Park Avenue.
In July, as part of the Covid Streetspace measures, Enfield Council issued an experimental traffic order closing one of the roads at Winchmore Hill Green to traffic (the 'northern west-to-east arm').

The council is now consulting on whether or not to make the road closure permanent.
