The Association has been working for residents of Bush Hill Park for over eighty years. We are an active group looking to help local residents solve problems and promote the well-being of the area. We work very closely with the local Councillors, meeting them each month to discuss issues and developments. Please use our contact form or Facebook to get through to us. Or you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Better still—why not join us? It is only £5 per household and you can see details of what we do and also how to pay here on the web-site.
We’re looking for street Liaison Officers to cover roads in our area. Please consider volunteering for just a few hours a year to help. Full details are here. Thank you!
New petition against changes to bin collection
A new on-line petition, this time hosted on Enfield Council’s web-site, has been started, following the rejection of the previous one on a technicality.
Two of our members routinely look after the 10 wooden planters on the down platform at Bush Hill Park Overground station. This year they have all been planted-up with a colourful display. Contact us if you would like to know more about how you can help.
Ward Boundary Review
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) have proposed changes to Bush Hill Park Ward. If accepted, the present 21 wards in the London Borough of Enfield would increase to 26, with several new wards electing two councillors, not three as at present. Specifically for Bush Hill Park, the proposals split the present Ward into three and the map above shows the changes proposed.
Station book exchange
The BHPRA has set up a free book exchange at Bush Hill Park station. With thanks to one of our members who donated the bookcase and station manager Zee for agreeing to have it installed. Anyone with books which they no longer want are encouraged to leave them at the station. The bookcase is in the waiting room. A similar scheme is in operation at Enfield Town.
Station Garden Group
Our two volunteers at Bush Hill Park station, Committee member Rosemary Perkins and Caroline Wilmer, will be starting their fortnightly work in March. They spend a couple of hours keeping the bed near the side entrance and the wall-mounted planters outside the station (St Marks side), plus the 10 wooden troughs on the Queen Anne’s Place side looking good throughout the summer. They would be pleased for more volunteers to help, even if it isn’t every time. You can contact the group through this web-site.
Next litter pick: Saturday 21st September
Meet 10am outside Stanton’s in Queen Anne’s Place.
AGM: Thursday 26th September
7.30pm at the Bush Hill Park Bowls, Tennis and Social Club in Abbey Road.
