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!
Let’s talk: Enfield Town Consultation
LBE has extended its consultation on making changes to Enfield Town centre with £8.5m of grants and its own money. All residents who use the Town are urged to participate. [Registration is required. Note: that the password is not the same as Enfield Connected.]
The consultation has been extended to 10th November 2019.
Bush Hill Park station ticket office hours set to be cut?
TfL has proposed a big cut in the opening hours at Bush Hill Park station, plus 47 other stations across the Overground network. This comes a year after plans to completely close the ticket offices was reversed by the London Mayor.
According to publicity put out by the RMT Union, the hours at Bush Hill Park are set to be cut by 85%, to just 7.30am — 10am Monday to Friday, with no ticket office being open at the weekends.
If you wish to voice your concern over these proposals, why not sign the petition being organised by the RMT?
Fifteen volunteers helped to collect an estimated 60kg of rubbish from around Bush Hill Park on 21st September. Well done everyone!
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.
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.
