Haringey Heroes week
Do you know somebody in Haringey doing something amazing or someone who deserves a pat on the back for the brilliant work they do? Someone like Lynn Stevens, a carer from Hornsey who supports vulnerable residents so they can live independently.
Or a Haringey resident who volunteers to run a sports or music club or someone involved in an organisation like the Good Gym, a running group set up to help the community.
Every week there are thousands of great things happening in our borough that would normally go unreported. Not anymore.
We are dedicating a whole week to uncovering these amazing stories, starting Monday 27 June and we need your help. Please tell us about a friend, neighbour, colleague or public servant who makes Haringey a brilliant place. It couldnâ€™t be easier to tell us the story. Simply fill out the online form, send us any pics if you have them and weâ€™ll do our best to make sure they are part of what will be a very special week in Haringey. Go online and take a minute to fill in the form. Or email details including a photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A new neighbourhood for Tottenham
The search for a long-term partner to build a new neighbourhood for Tottenham was launched yesterday (31 May 2016) by Haringey. More than 1,400 new homes will be built as part of the development, along with business space and a major new public square. The new homes are part of the groundbreaking â€˜High Road Westâ€™ scheme which will deliver a major new public space linking a revamped White Hart Lane Station to the new stadium with a park, restaurants, bars, cafÃ©s, library and learning centre and a public amphitheatre to host screenings and community events.
The Leader of Haringey Council, Claire Kober said: â€œToday we start the search for an ambitious partner to help us deliver a new neighbourhood for Tottenham with more than 1,400 new homes and thousands of new jobs. Read more in todayâ€™s Evening Standard.
A new website has been launched to share information about news, the local community and events in Tottenham.
Have your say on Muswell Hill library
Residents have been urged to have their say about Haringeyâ€™s proposal to relocate Muswell Hill library to an alternative site in the heart of Muswell Hill. A public consultation on the future of Muswell Hill library was launched this week and will close on Monday 25 August 2016.
The consultation outlines the two options available for the future of Muswell Hill library:
- Option 1: Stay in the same building
- Option 2: A brand new library in the centre of Muswell Hill â€“ larger space and modern facilities, with level access for wheelchair and pushchair users.
Have your say about the future of Muswell Hill library.
