Community Safety Meeting

Stacks Image 1495634
The Archway area has seen a dramatic increase recently in moped-facilitated crime, notably the attacks on Bread and Bean café and Gail’s in Highgate. In view of this WHPARA has organised a public meeting at which PC Mick Murray (who leads the Hillrise Safer Neighbourhood Team) will give a talk and answer questions. Wednesday 22nd November, 7.15pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Whitehall Park, N19. Refreshments will be available and the meeting will end around 9pm. All are welcome, so please spread the word to your neighbours! We have a poster if you would like to print and display it.

Once again WHPARA is sponsoring the Charity Concert in support of the Cold Weather Night Shelter for the Homeless. This year’s event, Game of Queens, celebrates the music and literature of the 16th century with the award winning early music ensemble Charivari Agreable, with support from YMM Adult Recorders and YMM Younger Recorder Ensemble. The concert begins at 7.00pm and to set the scene for Christmas there will be mince pies and mulled wine during the interval. Tickets are £12, £10 concessions.

All monies raised will go to support the Cold Weather Night Shelter, which St. Andrew’s Church runs from January until the end of March, providing much-needed shelter, food and company for homeless people. See flyer.

It turned out that it was possible for a person to climb through the previous test panel (17th September), so yet another one has been produced. We believe it is being tested in situ on the morning of Tuesday 21st November and, provided that it’s not possible to climb through it, will be signed off for manufacture and installation. See Bridge page for info.
