Northwold Area Residents’ Group aim to promote a sense of community amongst all those who live locally. We provide information and actively campaign on issues that affect members and their quality of life.
Activities: - We hold regular meetings, invite speakers, normally elected representatives, and distribute a newsletter to 1000 homes to keep people informed of local issues. We are not affiliated with any political, religious or cultural group, and encourage the participation of everyone in the community.
Clapton Regeneration: - we participate in the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund program for the area
Stoke Newington Common: - we are campaigning for the Common to be included in the GLA's 100 Open Spaces Scheme, we contribute to the users' group and aim to make it more accessible.
Clapton Library:- we support the users’ group and are participating in major plans to regenerate the Library.
Northwold Road traffic calming: – we campaigned successfully for measures to reduce the current accident rate of 10 "injury accidents" a year. We are campaigning for similar measures for Evering Road.
Street cleaning: - we provide feedback to the Council on borough services, and how to improve them.
Crime: - we are registered as a Neighbourhood Watch, which allows members to claim a discount on their home insurance, and we participate in police/ community consultation meetings.
