After what has felt like a long
winter of grey skies and long,
dark nights, Spring is finally here, and with it, important changes in Tottenham.
At the end of January, Claire Kober, leader of Haringey Council announced she was resigning, which means that as of the elections in May,
there will be a new head honcho in charge of the borough (see pages one
and three). Voting for the upcoming election will take place in May. If you are not yet registered to vote, you can do so online by visiting:
And you can find your nearest
polling station online here:
The new season is also bringing about change for us here at Tottenham
Community Press. We are thrilled to announce that in May we will be switching from a bi-monthly to a monthly publication, so that we can bring you #yournewsyourway
even more regularly.
In order to bring you a new issue each month, we need all hands on deck. Please get in touch via if you have any feedback or suggestions for the next
issue. We are always on the lookout for new contributors, so please do also send me an email if you are keen to write for us, send us photos or provide us with your poetry.
I will also be hosting regular, drop-in editing workshops from our new home at the Selby Centre for people who want to discuss article ideas or work on a story together. If you’re interested, please send me an email using the address above.
I hope you enjoy Issue 9 – there’s plenty to get your teeth into, from the health benefits of gardening and the success of Tottenham’s aquatics team, to students tackling the litterbugs and a group of artists partying with a social conscience.
Make sure you also check out this issue’s photography pages that capture some of Tottenham’ beautiful wildlife.
