    Thank you for the nice welcome! 

  • Lukie Hewat

    Thank you for your suggestion.  I wanted to 'reply' to your comment but don't know how to.  Please instruct.

    Actually I had looked at the site and there are almost no rooms available in the area for the approximate dates I want.

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for the welcome.


  • Bob Bluffield

    Thanks Richard. I found your site while searching for info on Chung Ling Soo who died at the old Empire. I was born in Wood Green in 1949 and lived there and in Bowes Park, Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Winchmore Hill prior to moving to Milton Keynes. I was educated at Alexandra School, Glendale Grammar and then Wood Green School. So, the site has plenty for me as I enjoy exploring the history of he area and may well have some stories to tell myself. I assume you knew that Millicent Martin ('That Was the Week That Was') lived in the road where I was born (Park Riding) and her cousin, Bob Bedford, who lived net door to her was the Advertisement Manager of 'Record Mirror' in the 1960s and was the first person I ever knew who owned a Rolls Royce.

  • Bob Bluffield

    Ah! Old Park Ridings is, I think, a road that runs between Winchmore Hill and Enfield. I also remember seeing a troupe of dwarfs regularly on Wood Green High Road that I think were performers called the 'Harmonica Gang' Alan Jones, the tennis coach of Jo Dury was also in my class at school and the great tennis photographer, Tommy Hindley was in my football team and lived in River Park Road. Tom is probably the best known tennis photographer of all time.

    Not been down there for some considerable time now. Until he retired ... I was a patient of Michael Stern at the dentists opposite the Odeon above Woolwich B/S I think it was. He was also a live wire in amateur dramatics at the pub on the left just before you get to Bounds Green Station (was it the Park Tavern or something?) and also prior to this at the Intimate Theatre.

    As a further interesting aside of well known people that lived in the area; when I was a kid in Park Ridings, the Spurs players Johnny Brooks and Eddie Clayton had digs at the top of the street and would sometimes kick a few balls with my mates and me when we played football in the street. In those days of course (around 1957) there weren't many cars about.

  • Bob Bluffield

    That's it ... the Springfield Tavern. I didn't know Bowie appeared at the Intimate. The former Spurs player Bobbie Smith lived in the block of flats opposite but when I lived down the road in Woodberry Avenue he had become almost down and out and would scrounge things from the local shops. Sad really but he only had himself to blame as he'd apparently turned to gambling and lost his job as a mini cab driver through drinking.

  • Ross Barnard

    Hi Richard,

  • Rachel Joseph

    Hello Richard,
    Many thanks for adding me to the community website... I never knew this local resource was available.

    I am a local business woman and maybe interested in advertising my business here but I was interested if it is possible to advertise my car for sale on here as it is a good family car 7 seater... Anyway if you could let me know what the etiquette is for these sorts of things that would be great.

    Kind regards

  • Lucinda Charlton

    thanks for the warm welcome!

    Lucinda :)

    Good to meet you, even if it's only via the B&B website.  Unfortunately I have other things to do now, but in time I will contribute to discussions about local issues.

    Hello - thanks for adding me Richard. I live in Maidstone Road with my 4 and 6 year old. I don't know why it's taken so long to join. Is it better to keep in touch with this site? Or over the facebook page. I am more of a facebook person...I hope.

    Hi Richard,

    Hallo Richard, Thanks for your welcome in November - I've only just seen it! Couldn't even remember whether I had a password, so just started over, the reason being that I wanted to find local poets for an event at Alexandra Park Library on 21st January 5.30-7.00.

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for welcoming me onto the site which looks terrific. 

    As a local writer and artist based at the Chocolate Favtory, I want to invite local people to my book launch at the Big Green Bookshop, Woodgreen.  I also want to tell them that the book is coming out on the 16 July. Shall I add an event?

    Thanks so muhc.


  • Allison

    Hi Richard, your article on rail services affecting Bowes Park was very interesting and great news for the area!  I'm moving in hopefully by end of August and I'm really looking forward to being an active part of the community.  I'm moving from Crouch End - was going to move into a flat there (for a ridiculous price) - when I decided to have a look at Bowes Park.  I love the feel of the area but have issues about the men loitering on the side streets and around the New River path - came across one who was relieving himself on a fence.  I would love to find a way to discourage this; perhaps through the forum we can collectively come up with some ideas.

    Best wishes.  Allison


  • Andreas S Jensen

    Hi Richard.

    Thanks for your welcome message!

    I recently moved to Bowes Park and absolutely love the place, and the great community vibe here !

    I am a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, and am looking forward to playing my first solo gig @ MUMS on Thursday August 20th, 8-10PM. It's a FREE GIG, YEAH!! And I hope some of you guys will be coming down to check out my music! 

    All the best, Andreas
