Annual Members’ Walk

On Sunday 9th June, at 11am, we are holding our annual members’ walk, which will be a guided tour of Alexandra Park, led by Sally Stevens. Places will be extremely limited and bookable by only our members – so please ensure you join MHFGA if you are interested in coming along!

How to report fly-tipping

The quickest and easiest way is by downloading the free ‘Our Haringey‘ app from either the App Store or the Google Play Store. If you report through the app, you will also get progress updates. In fact, the app can be used for a wide range of reports, such as potholes, graffiti and issues with pavements. Feedback from our members is that the app works very well and problems are fixed much quicker than via any other reporting method. Of course, if you do not use mobile apps, a slightly less high-tech option is to visit the Haringey website and make a report online.

If you catch someone in the act of fly-tipping, please take a photograph if you can, and feel free to send it to us, as we can pass it on to the council’s enforcement department anonymously. You can always email our Events & Publicity secretary at events@mhfga.org

 Change to the 134 bus route

Despite a strong campaign by the MHFGA, Transport for London have decided to go ahead with the planned curtailment of the 134 bus route. From 15th June 2019, the 134 bus will terminate at Warren Street (University College Hospital) and will therefore no longer serve stops south of Warren Street, down to Tottenham Court Road. Journeys to Tottenham Court Road can still be made easily by bus, by changing onto the 24 or 29 bus anywhere between Camden Town and Warren Street.

Furthermore, Transport for London have announced that travellers will not be made ‘out of pocket’ due to having passed the 1 hour Hopper Fare time limit. They have confirmed that when changes are made between the 134 and 24, or 134 and 29 routes, if the 1 hour time limit is breached, the Oyster or Contactless card which was used will be refunded £1.50 at the end of the week.

MHFGA is your local residents’ association (since 1948!) We produce six bi-monthly Newsletters per year, which are distributed to over 770 members. Membership for households is just £10 per year and gives you the chance to attend our special events, such as our recent guided tour of Lauderdale House. Each summer we hold the popular ‘Odd One Out’ competition, and our Christmas Charity Tombola has raised almost £800 for local causes. To join MHFGA and be kept up to date on local issues and our planned activities, visit www.mhfga.org/membership or email our Membership Secretary on membership@mhfga.org
