Couple of notes.  Dave Hill has put up an excellent piece about visiting Wards Corner on his Guardian blog.

And I just acquired a piece of Heathrow.  It’s the third blade of grass on the left past the lamppost. Get yours now before they are all gone.

Last night there was (were?)  hustings for the Seven Sisters ward by-election which happens this Thursday.  Here they are, plus the chair of the Tottenham Traders and minus the Tory candidate who sent a sub.

Seven Sisters ward by-election - hustings

Five good burghers and true, all promising everything. Reminds me of how Boris promised to save the market, the day before he was elected Mayor in May. Then dumped us.

Then browsing Dave’s links, there’s a piece about Fairlop Waters. Could this be the Fairlop Lake that was at the bottom of the garden of the prefab I grew up in, in Barkingside?  Maybe if my cycling legs have arrived by then, I’ll have a look this summer. No trace of the prefab now, nor of Kelvedon Gardens, from the days before postcodes.

Boris Johnson, Tory mayoral candidate, visits the Seven Sisters market the day before the election. This is the top floor of the derelict store, which can become great again.

His subsequent intervention has been very helpful, and was possibly the main reason why the planning meeting on 24th July got postponed.
