Scarabeus Aerial Theatre

In Scarabeus Aerial Theatre’s free summer workshops for 13-25 year-olds you’ll fly using stretchy fabric cocoons, and perform at height suspended on climbing harnesses. 8-12 August, 11am-4pm at Caxton House Community Centre, 129 St John’s Way, London N19 3RQ. See the flyer or visit their website.
- People’s views on foxes vary radically. Recent emails circulating this and other areas have listed a number of concerns about foxes, some going as far as suggesting a cull. Unfortunately, many of these arguments are based on misinformation or ignorance. See our Nature Page for further information.
- We now have an interactive Facebook group, intended as a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations and such. It replaces the website forums, blog and local traders list, which are seldom used and, in the case of the latter, difficult to keep current and accurate. We urge you all to join up as there is useful information being posted that is not on the website. Go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or you can link to it from the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
- Find out more on our Community Safety page.
Islington’s Community Safety newsletters can be downloaded from our documents page, or from Islington’s Community Safety page.
The latest newsletter from the Hillrise Safer Neighbourhoods Team can be seen here, or you can go to their website.
There is a new tool called the Community Trigger, designed to protect victims of antisocial behaviour, which enables them to request a review if they believe that insufficient action has been taken in response to their reports. More details here.
- Now that Whitehall Park School has opened on the old Ashmount site and the question of the division of the site settled, the next few years will see the building of the new school and a housing estate.
See the Ashmount Site page for all the info on the housing development and a history of the site..
See the School page for news of the development of the new school building.
- Our History Walkabout in April 2015 was a runaway success! David Seton led some 50 people around the area, delving into its history on the way. See his review and pictures on our Events page.
His fascination insights into the history of our area are on our History page.
If you have any additional information on the area’s development, please get in touch.
- You probably know that recent legislation gives people more power to influence the development of their local community by setting up Neighbourhood Forums. A group of people is currently setting up such a Forum for Archway and need to involve as many local people as possible in its development. If you live or work in the Archway area this is your chance to make your views known and to make a real difference to your community. Sign up to their mailing list here or visit their website.
- Due to the difficulty in keeping the Recommended Trader list current and accurate, as well as a couple of incidents where people received bad service from listed traders, we have started a new Facebook group on which you can post and ask for recommendations as well as other things.
