Palmers Green questionnaire

published on: 16/01/12

Please let us have your views on Palmers Green Shopping Area Regeneration and Improvement.

Laura Davenport of Broomfield (BHORA) has passed on this message from the Palmers Green Community who say:

'One of the main objectives of improving our place is to seek to facilitate local residents and businesses working together to make Palmers Green a better place. After a lot of work we are delighted to say that our Council have agreed to work in partnership to exactly that end. Their long term commitment to development work represents an excellent and welcome focus on our town.

'Some of the early thinking is quite radical.

'Our Council will now undertake background studies on traffic flow and other matters to help with planning; while for our part we are asked to help gather as many issues and ideas from residents and businesses alike to help guide the work.

'We really need to show that there is interest to make positive change so please take the time to provide input and do forward this e mail to your own friends and contacts and ask them to do likewise.
'A response sheet is attached but please feel free to provide input in whatever form and on whatever local issues are of importance to you.

'This is a big chance to help make a real difference to where we live, work and study. Please use it.

'Thank you'

New Day Hospice for Enfield folk

published on: 08/07/11

In l984 North London Hospice began providing care to the terminally ill living in the London Boroughs of Enfield, Haringey and Barnet.

A hospice building including an inpatient unit was built in l992 in North Finchley.  The Hospice now cares for 1,400 patients, and almost half their patients come from Enfield.

Over the years, it became clear that hospice care should be brought closer to the people of Enfield and a Day Hospice is now being built in  Barrowell Green.  This new facility will provide

  • A bright and modern Day Centre run by specialist nurses offering medical treatment, physiotherapy, alternative therapies and therapeutic activities.
  • A drop-in clinic for pain relief and other problems
  • A wider range of services provided by our Enfield homecare team of doctors, nurses, socials workers, bereavement counsellors and physiotherapists.

Construction work began in February, with anticipated completion early in 2012.

North London Hospice would welcome the opportunity to talk to any group in the London Borough of Enfield who would like to know more.  Please speak to Natalie Gordon or Pauline Treen on 020 8343 8841.

Enfield in Bloom office to close?

published on: 26/04/11

We asked Cllr Chris Bond whether there is any substance in the rumour that his administration is considering closing the administration office for Enfield in Bloom.

He replied:

I can assure you and your members that their is no substance in the rumour that the administration is considering closing the administration office at this time.

What I have said is that all of the Parks Department, now it is under the Environment Directorate, is being reviewed this year.

To assist that review the members of staff who run Enfield in Bloom have been asked to come and work from the Civic Centre where all the support they need to run the service is here.

You as a local tax payer would expect us to constantly review our services given the amount of Government cuts we have to find.

I hope this allays the fears of your members.

Yours sincerely

Cllr Chris Bond
