St Johns Church Clay Hill Enfield


MONDAY JULY 6th 2020

The Chairman of our Crews Hill Residents Association writes:

With the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions most of the businesses and garden centres in Crews Hill have re-opened, and on Saturday the Plough pub in Cattlegate Road began pulling pints of its McMullen beers again, albeit with strict admission and movement rules in force.

Some parts of Crews Hill saw residents turn out on Sunday to give another “Clap” this time to mark the 72ndanniversary of the founding of the NHS, to which we all owe an enormous debt for the dedication of the medical and support staff in dealing with the many thousands of victims of the disease.

So let’s be careful that through unthinking abuse of the new “freedoms of movement” the virus does not return with a vengeance.

The Vicar, the Reverend Peter Godden, here updates us on the re-opening of St John’s and St Luke’s Churches:

“I hope that you are all safe and well, and adjusting to things as the restrictions on our way of life are slowly relaxed.

First and foremost, as always please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you need, particularly in the way of pastoral care.  It’s always a pleasure to speak with people and hear how you are doing.

I also wanted to let you know about the re-opening of our church buildings. In June the government lifted their restrictions on the opening of church buildings for individual private prayer.  I’m therefore glad to say that both St John’s and St Luke’s are being opened at various times during the week for anyone to come and sit, reflect, and pray. The times may vary slightly from week to week dependent mainly on the availability of volunteers; you can find the times on our website well as our Facebookand Twitterpages.

The government have also now given permission for public services to resume from early July onwards, and a thorough list of guidelines has now been published which we must fulfil in order to do this. We therefore need to take a little time and great care to ensure that we open in a way that is safe, and complies with all the statutory requirements. We hope to hold Sunday morning services again within a couple of weeks or so; again, we shall keep our website and social media pages fully up to date with when this will happen.  In the meantime, we continue to share our full range of services online.

If you would like any more information, or would like to volunteer to help us open up more and keep our buildings safe, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

In the meantime, take care. You all remain in my prayers.

Every blessing,

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

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.

Thank you.
