Save Our Southgate – A message from Chris Dey, Grange Park Ward Councillor

(The following message is posted on behalf of Councillor Christopher Dey)

Dear Resident,

You may be aware that the Boundary Commission is proposing to destroy our current constituency of Enfield Southgate. We have produced the attached leaflet explaining this to residents which we have paid to be delivered to every household in the constituency.

In essence, the Boundary Commission wishes to move Winchmore Hill into the Edmonton Constituency & Grange Park into the Enfield North Constituency. Then the rest of the current constituency is coupled with four wards from Haringey to form a Southgate & Wood Green constituency.

Please can I request that you share the attached with your neighbours and other residents? This is non-political and just about saving our constituency. We will also be putting forward a proposal to the BC that looks more like the current Enfield Southgate constituency. We are very keen not to split the N21 postcode across two different parliamentary constituencies.

We have also placed it on the agenda for the Grange Park Ward Forum on Thursday. Agenda for Grange Park Ward Forum on Thursday, 24th November, 2022, 7.30 pm. Hope to see you there.

Kind regards

Councillor Christopher Dey
Member for Grange Park Ward

Shadow Cabinet Member for Community Cohesion & Safety

A message from Wren Academy re planning consultation for the permanent buildings for Wren Enfield

The following is posted on behalf of St Paul’s CE Primary School:


As you are probably aware we already have planning permission for the temporary buildings for Wren Academy Enfield on the Chase Farm Site.

We are now almost ready to make the application for the permanent buildings. Detailed designs have been drawn up for Wren Academy Enfield and a separate primary school, as well as outline designs for housing. This is a very exciting part of the process because it allows you to see what our buildings and the surrounding area will look like, and to comment on what you see, and this represents the formal consultation part of the planning process.

The Department for Education and the main contractor, Bowmer and Kirkland, have launched a public website today at

We would be very grateful if you could have a look at the website and share this with others in the community. We encourage you to review all of the material provided, ask the project team any questions and send your views via the feedback form by 7th May. It is really important for us to be able to demonstrate to Enfield planners that our community engagement has reached people, even in lockdown.


Thank you for your time and your support.

Increase of Motor Vehicle Crime

Dear Ward Member,

Increase of Motor Vehicle Crime

Please ensure that your vehicle is locked secure and that there is nothing on display inside.

If any resident sees anyone acting suspicious, please call it in to police right away. 




Report crime by calling 101 or in an emergency call 999.
Remember, you can also report crime online on the Met Police website:

APPEAL: Help Local Enfield Girl Find Stem Cell Donor

The following appeal is posted on behalf the Swab For Talia Campaign:


Hello (Grange Park Residents),

I am writing to ask if there is any way you could aid us in helping a close friend and local London girl, Talia Tosun.

In April, Talia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) and at the end of August, she was informed that she needs a bone marrow transplant due to chemotherapy being ineffective. Unfortunately, her sister isn’t a match, nor is anybody currently on the Anthony Nolan Register. Talia is of Turkish Cypriot descent and her best possible match would be from somebody of the same ethnicity, however, there is currently a huge lack of black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) donors. It is vital that we raise awareness to diversify the register and to ensure Talia and others have a chance of getting lifesaving stem cells. We’re now on a desperate hunt to find a match for Talia.

I was wondering if there is anything you can do to help, such share the page on social media or publish a post – this could have massive impact and could potentially save Talia’s life, if a match is found.

Any support is much appreciated!

Cherishing our Local Streams

The following leaflet about local residents’ on-going efforts to restore the Salmons Brook is promoted on behalf of The Pymmes BrookERS.

View the leaflet (in PDF): Cherishing our Local Streams.pdf

To offer help or support, please e-mail:

The Pymmes BrookERS is working together with Thames21, a charity. (More information)


About The Pymmes BrookERS:

The Pymmes BrookERS are a group of  Enfield residents working together with an aim to restore the Pymmes Brook and Salmons Brook, both tributaries of the River Lea. These rivers are all suffering from pollution, mainly from misconnected plumbing, sewage overflows and pollutants from roads.

With the help of Thames21, they are using environmental modelling software to map areas where wetlands and other greening initiatives can help trap pollution before it enters these rivers, and also reduce flooding. The group has identified 18 new spaces, which if installed, would radically transform the health of the Pymmes and Salmon’s Brooks.

The group is always happy to welcome new members so that both rivers become, in their words ‘cleaner, wilder and more fun!
