The campaign to save Wards Corner from redevelopment is holding a jumble sale today, from 11am:
“This is to raise funds for the legal challenge against the Grainger/LBHaringey plan to demolish Wards Corner. Our last sale, of just books and plants, was very successful but a bit damp, this time we have ordered sunshine so do come along and enjoy the day, and have a delicious coffee and snack at the Pueblito Paisa cafe.”
The sale runs 11am till 4pm at the Seven Sisters market.
The developers Grainger are currently applying to erect hoardings over the existing building. This application has caused further controversy and can be seen online (HGY/2013/0773) where it is also possible to submit comments,
Those interested in the campaign should also note the next Wards Corner meeting is at 6:30pm Monday 10 June in Pueblo Paisa Cafe, Wards Corner, 231 High Rd, Tottenham (outside Seveb Sisters tube). The Wards Corner Community Coalition (WCC) is a grassroots organisation working to stop the demolition of the homes, businesses and indoor market above Seven Sisters tube station and fighting the attempts of Grainger PLC to force out the local community. Active since 2007 the WCC has been working to empower the community in Seven Sisters to take control of its future and determine how Wards Corner should be developed. The WCC continues to fight for a fairer future and is in the process of developing plans for a sustainable, community-led development of the Wards Corner Site.
