Hello and welcome to issue 18… Happy New Year! As TCP looks forward to venturing into 2019, we have had a great opportunity to take a look back to the past, thanks to Henry Jacobs sharing his memories of 1970s’ Tottenham.
The concepts of past/present, old/ new, have been very much on the mind of local resident, Neri Gun. She tells TCP how her event, the Tottenham Mixer will allow attendees to talk about the changes that often comes with the passing of time (p.10).
Read about how Haringey’s voluntary and community organisations were celebrated at the annual Haringey Expo on p.7, and turn to p.13 to hear about how music promotors, Helkat are championing live music by hosting gigs at The Cause.
Helen Swinyard provides a book review for the youth on p.11, whilst Karin Lock offers her take on Darren McGarvey’s award winning book, Poverty Safari on p.14.
This year TCP has partnered with the BBC’s Local Democracy Reporting Service, allowing us to share even more articles covering the local authority and other public service organisations.
Wishing you all a great 2019.
At TCP we believe that Tottenham deserves a newspaper that is written by and for local people, and which celebrates the community in all its diversity.
We believe that local news brings people together around the issues that matter most to them and ensures everyone can have a voice in local decision-making.
Now more than ever we believe that the media should be responsive and accountable to the community it serves.
Tottenham Community Press is your local newspaper, keeping you up to date with news, views and events in the local area.
