 xmas lights nov 2018

Thanks to a fund-raising campaign by a coalition of local businesses and residents, the Christmas lights will be back this year, spreading seasonal cheer around the centre of Palmers Green.

The absence of Christmas lights last year was widely regretted by local people and shopkeepers, so this year they got together to raise more than £5000. The council provided a matching amount, ensuring that the high street will be lit up this year and for the next few Christmases at least.

The big switch on will happen on Thursday 15th November, accompanied by carol singing, hot chestnuts and a chance for children to meet the elves and Mr & Mrs Clause. Local shops will be staying open late and there will be a competition for the best shop window decorations.

Brian Lewis, proprieter of the My Time cafe and a member of the committee of the Green Lanes Business Association, expressed his satisfaction at the successful campaign. "This was an amazing effort by businesses, local residents and Enfield Council to pull together the money for a tree and Christmas Lights. It shows that community is strong in Palmers Green, so please come along and enjoy the events"

The Palmers Green lights have been funded by local businesses in conjunction with the Green Lanes Business Association and Enfield Council

Thank you to all these businesses for helping to fund the 2018 Palmers Green Christmas lights

A community hub for Palmers Green?

At the recent meetings about reviving Palmers Green town centre a suggestion made from the floor was that PG needs a 'community hub'. So what might a community hub look like? A couple of months ago I visited Social Spider, the community interest company that publishes the Enfield Dispatch. Their offices are in Walthamstow, in a building called The Mill. The Mill is a perfect example of one possible type of community hub. Read more

What a perfect day for a pop-up parklet!

Palmers Green's first ever pop-up parklet event, on Sunday 15th September, was a great success. There were plenty of visitors, the weather was ideal (believe it or not, there was a time not so long ago when it didn't rain every day), the location - at the Green Lanes end of Devonshire Road - was well chosen, nearby businesses joined in - Stitch! even opened on a Sunday specially - and the council was cooperative. But most of all, the event succeeded because of hard work and careful planning by a team of around 20 people and because it was such a great idea! Read more
