A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
I was delighted to get this message from the We Love Myddleton Road group organisers and wanted to share it here, in case anyone's not on their mailing list. What a lot was achieved last year! Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved.
365 days... 52 weeks... 12 months... one year.
What can happen in one year?
Well, a lot can happen, just on one street...
A hub of four independent businesses can be given new, colourful and eclectic clean shop-fronts, restored in original tree wood.
Over 500 residents can respond to a survey about a local high street they love and want returned to former glories.
A store can appear selling distinctive decor and gifts, all inspired by a photo from 1856.
A sports marketing company with a free stack of magazines in its window can open, encouraging locals to run like the wind.
A summer festival can close the street and fill it with stalls, music, games and more people than anyone can remember.
A shop offering Steinway pianos and practice rooms can open, bringing a musical renaissance to the area.
A new gym can take over a giant empty shop unit, and gather hundreds of new members within weeks.
The restoration of a loved but decaying old clothing store can finally begin, revealing gorgeous old polyester shirts and more treasures besides.
A world-famous Greek restaurant can get a complete makeover, with new decor and lighting.
A restaurant launched less than three years ago can take a big step forward, winning a Time Out award as best local eatery for its culinary riches.
A sewing and fabric workshop can experience altered states with a completely new frontage and interior.
A new atelier and salon can bring a bit of organic beauty to the street.
A top north London estate agency can take over a run-down former stationery shop and add to the road artful wooden frontages and lighting.
A winter festival can bring Santa, lantern-making and fun-fair rides to the street and a parade of carol singers and men behaving badly.
So, you see, a lot can happen in one year.
Happy New Year and see you in 2016!
Daniel, Emma and James, Co-Chairs, We Love Myddleton Road
