Litter Pick – This Saturday

Do join us for a couple of hours on Saturday, 9th October 2021 to help tidy the estate and to make it more pleasant for everyone.

We will meet up at 10:15 am at 105 Cheviot Gardens, ready for a 10:30 start, and will aim to finish at around 12:30 pm.

The weather forecast looks good!

Litter pickers, waste bags and our own Golders Green Estate hi-vis jackets will all be provided. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots. We have a limited supply of gloves – please bring your own if possible.

Children are more than welcome to join in, if supervised.

If you haven’t done so already, do please let us know if you intend to come so that we will have an idea of numbers.

As previously advised  we hope to make litter-picking around the estate a more regular (2-3 month) event.

The next planned date is Saturday, 9th October.

Please make every effort to help for a couple of hours.

We will meet up at 10:15 am at 105 Cheviot Gardens, ready for a 10:30 start, and will aim to finish at around 12:30 pm.

Thank You!

Thank you ever so much to those who helped with the litter pick last Saturday! Although there were only a few of us we made a big impact! … And the rain held off until the very end.

There was some enthusiasm for making this a regular (2-3 month) event. So we’ll aim to have additional ones in September and November as a start. Watch this space!

2020 – What a Year it’s Been!

Covid-19. Perhaps enough said! But …

• It was lovely to see so many join in the Clap for NHS and to see how neighbours have looked out for each other throughout.

• Thanks to the residents who have been supporting our local pharmacy deliver medicines to the housebound.

Litter picking

• One resident was spotted litter-picking on his own in Purbeck Drive one early morning during the first lockdown. How kind!

• Thank you to residents of The Vale who have organised litter pick-ups in the green space there.

• We hope we can organise another estate-wide litter pick-up in due course.

We continue to campaign for Donoghue’s to relocate. On a related note, we were able to help coordinate some strong opposition to the proposed concrete batching facility in Cricklewood.

It was lovely to see in the spring the results of the earlier wildflower bulb-planting activity.

The Memories Group has been meeting weekly via Zoom every Wednesday 5:00–6:00 pm since April. It has become more of a support group to its members during these peculiar times. It welcomes all residents and those with a connection to our area. It is now on Christmas break but weekly meetings will resume on Wednesday 13th January. If you would like to join any of its meetings just email memories@ggera.org.uk.

After some months of cajoling, the vandalized cash machine in Pennine Drive has at long last been removed.

We do thank Barnet Council for installing the CCTV camera in Pennine Lane, behind the shops. Please email PC Singh at amric.singh@met.police.uk if you witness any antisocial behaviour in that area.

We continue to try to halt the overdevelopment of our neighbourhood. Some planning applications have been turned down after our lobbying. Thank you to all those who have taken the time to object.
