Event Description

In the Summer of 2010 I stumbled over a historical nugget which revealed that Stroud Green Library had originally been conceived as a library for Stroud Green & Harringay. I suggested to the Head of Haringey Libraries that there would be good reason to reflect this design intention in the present day name.

Just over a year later, I'm delighted to be able to report that this coming Wednesday there's a renaming celebration at ........Stroud Green & Harringay Library.

The library is putting on an Edwardian style afternoon tea to celebrate with donated food from Café Moka and from our users.

On behalf of Stroud Green, I object.  Get back to your side of the tracks.  It has been proposed the Harringay Railway Station be renamed Harringay and Stroud Green Railway Station in retaliation.

I'm looking forward to the cakes.

btw Arkady I'm happy to cede the Shelton Hotel and the Jewson Yard to your side of the tracks as well as renaming the Station Stroud Gay Green

Is that one of those wonderful coincidences that we both came up with the same alternative name for the station or or you referring to my suggestion on SG.org

Annexing the Shelton would actually decrease Stroud Green’s desirability by a considerable margin.  Can we have Moka instead?  Probably too much to ask.  La Vina?  What about a landswap – the offy on Wightman Rd in exchange for New Istanbul convenience store?

I was referring to your suggestions on SG.org. Hugh.

Aaaooow, Liz. I wanted a kwinkydink. 

Arkady, I think you have the elements a a great local game there - a boroughwide shopfront fantasy league.
