Current plans for HS2 include major redevelopment of Euston and for the Eurostar to link to HS2 through Camden Road Station. Evtra Committee volunteers will be discussing this and keeping residents and tenants up to date. If you are interested in participating in the dialogue about HS2 there’s a good online forum run by Camden Council.
Spring may seem a while away, but there’s no better time to start thinking about your garden. We’ve updated our Resources page with a Gardening section that includes an Elm Village gardener who’s available to help you.
If you are looking for pure historical fact, read no further ! Many of the events described in Ed Lee’s latest instalment of the Elm Village Chronicles have been disputed by historians. But let’s not spoil a good story for the sake of the truth.
Our little park is looking lovely once more. The willow is sporting a short back and sides, the lawn is smooth and the flower beds are looking great. It’s opened up the space, given it clear viewing lines and allowed the sunlight in. Thanks to Fountains and Camden for giving us a park to be proud of.
Each year our little park Elm Village Open Space becomes neglected. This year is no different. Easy perhaps to blame the rain and the recession, but are our council taxes being well managed? How hard can it be for the grounds contractor to come by once a week and see that our area has not been maintained?
The long grass becomes an excuse for the irresponsible dog owners to not clean up, not that they need it but at least with a short lawn you can see where you are stepping. The rubble and debris is hazardous – surely the contractors can remove such items? The overgrown willow never gets cut back. If it were shorter it would still look nice and the park would be more open and safer.
Come on Camden – we’re not a backwater here – we’re proud of Elm Village and want to maintain the value of its amenities.
