Crews Hill Residents Association
was held at Crews Hill Golf Club
Thursday 6th June 2019
We are now more than three weeks into Coronavirus emergency, and I hope we are coping well with the self-imposed isolation. The Thursday 8pm applause for the NHS is certainly helping residents to make new friends as they mingle – at 6ft (2 mtrs) apart of course – with shouted “Are you OK?” inquiries. It will happen again next Thursday, so please join in.
For many of us having to stay at home 24 hours a day means finding things to do, like shopping, gardening, decorating – but all pose problems especially since we can’t now pop out for items, or even a consolation drink as both the Plough pub in Cattlegate Road and King & Tinker pub in Whitewebbs Road are both closed temporarily..
Some businesses in Crews Hill are still open, and also offering a home delivery service. They all have websites.
Open are: Crews Hill Gardening Club, Theobalds Park Road 08453 19 19 00. (membership fee, plus charge for home delivery).
Wolden Garden Centre, Cattlegate Road (opp rail station). – 020 8363 7003 – is offering home delivery only (charge applies).
Jollyes Pet Food Superstore, Theobalds Park Road.
Temporarily closed are:
Crews Hill Golf Club.
Enfield Garden Centre, formerly Wyevale.
Springtime Garden Centre, both Cattlegate Road.
Enfield Town Market is closed for the duration, including the much-patronised bread, greengrocery and fish stalls.
Holtwhites Bakery is offering home delivery via its online shop so fresh bread and cakes could be very welcome. Orders can be placed and paid for as click-and-collect from the shop the next day if placed before 3pm OR home delivery (a charge) on Mon, Weds & Fri in the Enfield area (within a 5-mile radius).
If you can’t get a delivery slot for the supermarkets, you can always ask a neighbour who has got one to add your shopping list to theirs and settle up afterwards.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to keep washing your hands, keeping a distance from other people, and if out wiping not only items or surfaces other people have touched but also items bought from shops..
Stay safe, and keep well.
Why not add your business to our Facebook page. Let us know what you are up to.
THE NEXT AGM is to be confirmed …

New Enfield Local Plan 2036 Have your Say
Enfield Council has put its draft New Enfield Local Plan 2036 on its website as part of its public consultation process. The plan will come into force in 2021 and will be the planning framework policies and sites in the borough to guide decisions on future development, investment and infrastructure.
It is important that as many Crews Hill residents as possible inform the council of their views on the plan and contribute, where possible, alternative ideas. It is very important that we do have our say, because the council says a strategic plan-led approach to the Green Belt will be a major part of the NLP.
The council is carrying out a total review of all of the borough’s land resources and the uses to which they are and could be put. Brownfield (previously developed) sites will be a major focus, and all garden centre and other commercial sites in Crews Hill are termed “brownfield sites”.
The NLP aims to meet the target of building 2,400 homes a year, a lot more than are currently being built. They must be built somewhere in the borough, so please try to influence the council in its decision-making.
You can read the whole plan and submit your views by visiting the website www.enfield.gov.uk/plan3
Unlawful use of Land
There are currently a number of issues in Crews Hill regarding unlawful use of Land. the Enforcement Team are issuing notices, but it is a slow process. Many of us know what and where they are, but probably not a good idea to publish.
Notices regarding burning of waste and plastics
This practice has been going on for years and can contain noxious particulates causing asthma attacks, weeping eyes, difficulty breathing. Prolonged exposure is bad news for everyone – please report it to Environmental Health at Enfield Council through their website. And please let the Committee know by informing us.
Any questions please address the Chairman through the following address…
