An application has been made to develop the car wash and garage in Sunnyside Road for a block of flats and refurbishment of the listed Georgian coach house for commercial use. See application application P2020/2232/FUL, comments until 4th October 2020.
It appears that the Archway Tavern has reopened after its 6-year closure saga. The landmark local has had a makeover – and could soon open at 7am to welcome home workers. See article in the Islington Gazette.
The Sunday Socials at Sunnyside Gardens have obviously been disrupted by the pandemic, but should be starting again soon. Plant sales, bicycle repairs, craft activities, a cake stall and a chance to meet your neighbours (in a socially distanced way, of course) - what’s not to like? Used to be the first Sunday of every month, 1-4pm at Sunnyside Gardens, but watch this space for updates.
This regular opportunity to meet and discuss issues with our local Safer Neighbourhoods Team has obviously been suspended during the pandemic. Check the Hillrise SNT website for dates and venue when it resumes.
