Jan North

With sadness we learn Jan North died in a hospice late September. She was well known to and loved by many Elm Villagers. Jan was at the centre of our musical community in particular and we shall miss her joyful singing at the annual Carols at the Con gathering. Her funeral is on 18th October and there will be a reception at the Con. For more information please contact us.

Join us! The Camley Street Harvest Festival 29th Sept

All Elm Villagers are invited . . . to the Camley Street Harvest Party:

Friday 29th September 5pm – 9pm @ Alara Wholefoods, 110-112 Camley Street N1C 4PF

Come and meet neighbours who live or work in and around Camley Street. Arrive anytime from 5 onwards but be warned – the roast disappears very fast!

There will also be news on progress with the Neighbourhood Plan – after deliberating over our financial model for a large proportion of affordable housing for several months Camden have now (literally a few days ago) asked us to prepare a ‘Strategic Environmental Assessment’ and we’re now already in the process of applying for a grant to get that done.

Regardless of anything though – please do come to the party on Friday – it will be great to see you there.

The Counter Terrorism presentation has been developed to help update those living and working across the Borough of the current national threat from terrorism as well as outline the simple steps that can be taken to help protect ourselves and our community. In a nutshell, we will cover:

  • The current threat
  • Hostile Reconnaissance (suspicious behaviour)
  • Bombs/IEDs
  • Suspicious items and how to respond to them
  • Firearms and weapons attacks – what to do if you are caught up in one

How do rogue traders approach and target their victims these days?

Do join us for this fascinating talk from Trading Standards. Hear all about:

  • The current trends
  • The typical ‘patter’
  • How properties are marked to identify the vulnerability of the occupier
  • How rogue traders pass their victim’s details on to others.

Camley Street Waterfall Finally Turned Off

After more than 3 months, the waste of hundreds of thousands of gallons of water has finally been fixed. Residents of EVTRA and Camden Council made repeated requests to the developer and Thames Water to halt the discharge. The water system had been vandalised in November 2016 and this is why water was gushing 24/7.
