Addiscombe & Shirley Community Meeting (Crime)
Contact our councillor Jeet to get involved in Chess, Gardening and other community activities to engage young people in Addiscombe.
Message from Jeet Bains to Addiscombe East RAs:
I recently attended an excellent event held by two local gentlemen at a community centre on Stroud Green Way. This was to generate good ideas for improving safety in the community, particularly following the recent terrible murder of a teenaged boy, Zaian Aimable-Lina, in Ashburton Park.
Two things that I am following up on:
- They would like to start a chess club. Do we have any chess enthusiasts among us, or do we know anyone who could be interested?
- There is a strong desire to have more activities that younger people can do with those who are somewhat older. I know we do gardening in various parks and green spaces. Is this something we could get younger people to help with?
This would be with young people who aren’t necessarily in the areas covered by your Residents’ Associations, but I think this would be great for wider community cohesion and upliftment.
Please do let me know if you can help.

2021 AGM and social
This year we had an offer to hold our AGM in the Victorian house in Outram Road, home to the late Shirley Mills. Shirley was one of the longest-standing members of our Residents Association, a lovely and charismatic person. Tracey, her daughter, is our host and we are very grateful for this gesture to our community.
We plan to have a sunny day! and hold the short official part of the AGM on the terrace and in the garden. There will be an opportunity to get an update on HOME concerns and discuss any issues that trouble us. Please send an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. The agenda and reports will then be sent to you.
It will be possible to have a look around the house as well. We will maintain all socially responsible measures, however please be mindful of coronavirus and come only if you are well.
Please respond if you wish to attend - we will have refreshments and need to know the numbers.
You will be able to attend only if you register beforehand.

Trees in our H.O.M.E
In August many trees were pollarded and on behalf of H.O.M.E RA, Mira wrote to try and prevent this work being done while the trees were in full leaf. Additionally Mira wrote to Director of Public Realm, Steve Iles regarding trees.
H.O.M.E RA committee has always worked to make the roads greener and healthier asking the council for more trees. The effort has paid off and in 2018 ten new tree places were put into Elgin Road. In 2020 we expect nine replacement trees in Havelock Road.
If you have questions or concerns about the trees in the H.O.M.E roads, the RA committee urge you to contact the council and our councillors:
