Bowes Park Community Association
The Bowes Park area, as defined by the Community Association, runs along Bounds Green Road, Green Lanes, the A406 and the train line by Whittington Road. Within our area we have the unique challenge of representing the views of the community to both Haringey council and Enfield council! We welcome any members whether you live in this defined area or not, even if it is just to get involved in our events and groups.
Our mission is to represent and include the community in protecting and improving this interesting and historic residential area of North East London. Protecting the community’s best interests is about being proactive and reactive to decisions made by Haringey and Enfield on issues such as planning, traffic, crime, parking, rubbish and green space maintenance.
We also aim to help bring the community together and celebrate the good things about this area. We do this by raising money and bringing together volunteers to organise local events and promoting groups with particular interests such as the art group, the walking group and the garden groups.
We want to help regenerate Myddleton Road which is at the heart of our community and to act as a catalyst to get new businesses to this road that benefit the local community and encourage the community in the meantime to support and use the great businesses that we already have in this road.
Broomfield Home-Owners & Residents Association
BHORA was established in 1929 and is the longest standing residents association in the London Borough of Enfield. It was set up to serve the interests of the local community organising social events, as well as tackling aspects of local life such as health, transport, and so on. The Association is non-political and non-commercial.
BHORA covers a large area from (south to north) the Haringey boundary at Bounds Green up to Broomfield Park and from (east to west) Green Lanes over towards Arnos Grove.
Broomfield House Working Group
The Broomfield House Working Group, with members drawn from the Broomfield House Trust and Friends of Broomfield Park, has been collaborating with Enfield Council in a project to rebuild Broomfield House, which was almost destroyed by a series of fires in the 1980s. The restored Broomfield House would be enjoyed as a heritage and learning centre, a place which schools can use to bring history alive, and a venue to display artworks and other collections. It would offer a café, community meeting rooms and events, serving as a much needed social hub.
The Group's website provides detailed information about the restoration project, alongside a wealth of historical information about the mansion, the core of which dates from 1550.
Enfield Conservation Volunteers
Enfield Conservation Volunteers carry out practical conservation work in Enfield's parks and countryside on alternate Sundays. An opportunity to gain experience in traditional crafts such as hedge laying, coppicing, bridge building and path construction. No experience is necessary as training will be provided. More information is available by clicking on the title link above and on N21.net.
Enfield National Trust Association
You can join us even if you are not a National Trust member!
Please do come along to one of our Afternoon or Evening Meetings to see what we have to offer - you will be most welcome!
We are a voluntary organisation for local members of the National Trust enabling us to further our common interest in the preservation of our country’s heritage. Enfield National Trust Association was formed in 1977 and has almost 400 members living in Enfield and adjacent areas. We are independent of the National Trust, with our own constitution, and have a committee to organise our affairs, together with various helpers.
Our evening meetings are held in the Enfield Grammar School, Market Place, Enfield. We also have afternoon meetings in Holtwhites Sports and Social Club, Kirkland Drive, Holtwhites Hill, Enfield. Why not come along to one of our meetings as a guest, for a small charge, and see what we do?
We have coach outings to various houses and gardens, some NT and some privately owned. Also, we have visits to places in London, some not normally open to the public. Coach trips to concerts in the Cadogan Hall, and theatre trips to The Watermill, Newbury, and The Mill at Sonning also feature. All of our visits are keenly priced and are only available to members of our association.
Federation of Enfield Residents’ & Allied Associations
Enfield Borough is home to over 300,000 residents. Many belong to their local residents’ association. FERAA is the body that represents the associations jointly, thus increasing the means to achieve results. On behalf of residents FERAA has been pressing for solutions to local problems for over 40 years. You can help us by joining your residents’ association
Fox Lane & District Residents' Association
The Fox Lane and District Residents' Association (FLDRA) was formed in 1978 and is the sole voluntary body representing the interests of residents living within the area bounded by Bourne Hill, The Bourne, High Street, Cannon Hill, Aldermans Hill and Green Lanes. A total of around 3500 households, of which more than 560 households are currently members.
Friends of Firs Farm Park
We are a group of volunteers interested in looking after our park. We are looking for like minded people to help look after our green space.
Many local dog walkers, keep-fit enthusiasts, along with a number of sports groups, use this space and currently it is going through a number of changes in relation to the recently publicised flood relief works. Would you like to know how you can contribute to these changes and in how our park will be used? Join the Friends Group for Firs Farm Park. N21 2PJ. Friends Groups represent the community's interest in their local park or open space. You can get involved in how our park is managed and maintained, hold events, raise funds, develop small projects and work with the Council in various ways for the benefit of Firs Farm Park.
Friends of Pymmes Park
Friends of Pymmes Park are a team of volunteers who love Pymmes Park so much that they give their time freely to ensure the health and welbeing of the park is maintained and made safe for the many animals as well as the various people who enjoy it.
It is their hope that more people, young, old and inbetween, will come and visit, care for and enjoy the park as much as Friends of Pymmes Park do.
Because of various cutbacks and financial shortages to care for the park, it is up to everyone to understand what is needed for such a special park as Pymmes.
Friends of the Lakes Estate Conservation Area
On 10th February 2010 The London Borough of Enfield designated the Lakes Estate Conservation Area. The Lakes Estate Conservation Area Study Group (LCASG) was set up to help residents communicate with the Council about management of the Conservation Area and about individual applications for planning permission. In 2015 the LCASG changed its name to Friends of the Lakes Estate Conservation Area. The Friends' web pages are hosted by Palmers Green Community, as is a discussion forum which is accessible only by members of the Friends.
Pinkham Way Alliance
The Pinkham Way Alliance (PWA) was set up in early 2011 to campaign against plans to build a large waste-processing plant and waste wagon depot on an ecologically valuable green space adjacent to the North Circular Road. PWA supporters now comfortably exceed 3000.
Initially campaigning focussed on the despoiling of a locally important site for nature conservation, but PWA members subsequently came to realise that the tendering process had serious implications for the very long term finances, and hence Council services provided, to the 1.7m residents in all seven North London boroughs which make up the North London Waste Authority. While PWA has increasingly been seen to be winning the argument, both ecological and financial threats remain and the fight is far from over.
Southgate District Civic Voice
We are Southgate District Civic Voice (SDCV), a not for profit organisation run by volunteers. Our main area of interest includes: Southgate, Southgate Green, Cockfosters, New Southgate, Oakwood, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill. An area loosely based on the old Southgate Municipal Borough, abolished in 1965 to form part of the London Borough of Enfield.
Founded in 1962 as Southgate Civic Trust, in response to the threat to demolish the Georgian cottages on Southgate Green and dissatisfaction with official planning procedures. This fight contributed to the creation of Southgate Green conservation area. In 1993 the Trust’s name was changed to Southgate District Civic Trust to better reflect our area of interest. Then in 2018, marking our continued ability to evolve and speak up for our local community, we became Southgate District Civic Voice.
Southgate Green Association
The SGA is an organisation dedicated to preserving and enhancing the Southgate Green Conservation Area. Southgate Green, located on the southwest boundary of the London Borough of Enfield, was designated a Conservation Area in 1968. It covers approximately 31 hectares, with over 30 listed buildings and structures. The Conservation Area radiates from Southgate Green northwards along the High Street, westwards down Waterfall Road and southwards along Cannon Hill until the junction with Alderman's Hill. The buildings and spaces along these roads form a village envelope which has a special character and appearance described in the Conservation area character appraisal.
The Enfield Society
This society was founded in 1936 as the Enfield Preservation Society (EPS), and renamed The Enfield Society (TES) in 2007. It has about 2000 members and is one of the most active amenity societies in the country. The Enfield Society has a record of vigorous action in defence of the local environment by practical conservation and campaigning. There is also a strong social section. The Society is a registered charity, No.276451.
Enfield’s environment is threatened as never before. Open spaces are being sacrificed to commercial development. The Green Belt is under constant pressure. Historic buildings are deteriorating. We are fighting to preserve our heritage so that future generations can enjoy Enfield’s rich architectural legacy and Green Belt countryside. We do not oppose development, but do all that we can to ensure that it enhances the character and atmosphere of the Borough, while not losing the best of the past.
We Love Myddleton Road
A new community campaign group has been formed to help protect and promote Myddleton Road - one of Bowes Park's most important and unique assets.
WE LOVE MYDDLETON ROAD works alongside the Bowes Park Community Association and the existing Myddleton Road Strategy Group to complement the work these groups have been doing for many years. It was formed by concerned residents and traders wanting to see more regeneration on the road and protection for its valuable shops and buildings.
The group's focus is to find ways for the whole community, both residents and traders, to play their part in building a better future for
this much loved road – that means anything from running events like a “Cash Mob” to encourage more people to shop locally, to promoting the road and its businesses or talking to the council about how we can support the needs of existing traders.
The group is also trying to stop further decline of this unique road by reporting dumped rubbish and objecting to unwanted planning applications.
It meets monthly and is looking for new members to help build on all the positive change already happening on the road. To get involved or to be kept up to date email or follow them on Twitter @welovemyddleton.
