Thanks to the pledges and likes posted by local people on Facehive, the Palmers Green Action Team's project to start creating a green chain from Broomfield Park to Hazelwood Rec is now assured financially. The money taking the project over the finishing line came in the shape of a grant of £4,065 from the Mayor of London. Added to the more than £1,500 pledged by individuals and organisations, that takes the total to just under £6,000, 128 per cent of the target of £4,363.

A green chain stretching from Broomfield Park all the way to Hazelwood Recreation Ground, allowing birds, butterflies and other pollinators to cross Green Lanes east/west - that's the vision of the Palmers Green Action Team. To get it started, they've launched a Spachive crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds needed to buy and put in place two trees to green the stretch of Green Lanes between the Triangle and the end of Hazelwood Lane

When at the end of 2020 Friends of Broomfield Park announced the launch of their Tree Project, they were surprised (and delighted) when individuals and businesses offered to donate trees for planting in the park. Obviously, they didn't turn down the offers and are now seeking further donations so that they can make their planting plans even more ambitious and turn Palmers Green even greener.

The next items of street art being created for PG under commission from the Palmers Green Action Team are taking a while... But that's hardly surprising, as they're a set of mosaics which will adorn Palmers Green Station and are being put together one little piece at a time.

The Ruth Winston Centre's familiar building in Green Lanes has been closed to members since March, but RWC continues to provide for its members.

Gardener Vic Black writes that people have told her that at one time there were up to 12 gardeners tending to the flowerbeds in Broomfield Park. More recently, however, there has been no brigade of park staff to keep the beds in check, so many were sadly reclaimed by the weeds. And that would probably still be the case, if the Friends of Broomfield Park had not stepped in...

In March, despite protests, Enfield's cabinet agreed to go ahead with a plan to set up a centralised children and families hub on the first and second floors, despite, it seems, not having identified a suitable new home for the borough's well regarded archives and local history library. Ever since local the Enfield Society and other civic sector organisations have been seeking in vain to enter into satisfactory dialogue with the council about this. They have now published an alternative plan which, they say, would not only allow the museum and archives to remain at the Dugdale, along with conference facilities and rooms for hire by community organisations, but would actually save more money than the council's proposal.
