Archway Park

You may recall that work was delayed because the electric supply to the park shelter needed to be disconnected prior to its demolition. Islington now report that UK Power Network (UKPN) have given a disconnection date of 2nd March, and once this has been completed work will resume. LBI advise that due to the complexity of the work and the extent of the earthworks, the anticipated completion date will not be until the Summer. See the plans.

Facebook Group

Our Facebook group is a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations, sharing and other fun things. 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. To join up go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or click the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
Articles from What’s New that are time-expired but might still be of relevance can be found on the ARCHIVE page.
