MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Forgot to say that I had an email from the Council about my enquiries on the never replaced, often promised, childrens’ play equipment for Noel Park Recreation Ground, which has been absent now for two summers. Result – children with nothing to amuse them!
The email said that contractors began on 14th June (no they didn’t as I was there at beginning of July) and that they would be on site until end of August completing works. It also mentioned Groundwork (an activating company – very good) being brought in to work with local residents on further development.
Well – call me suspicious – but I knew no work had been done in the first month but thought I better go down and check – so on Wednesday went down there and found that parts of the area had now been dug up. Fencing had been erected around the site – but was falling down (and dangerous in my view) in at least three places. So I called the guy in charge of this – and he promised to look into it and then get back to me with a further update of when and where and what. So – went back today – and bob’s your uncle – the wire panels on the fencing have been repaired and some really sturdy posts put in to ensure that the fencing stays in place. So – one thing corrected and I now wait for the update on content and finishing dates so I can let everyone know.
