EVERY Sunday from 10 – 3pm, Palmers Green Station car park

We think that Palmers Green is on the verge of big things. There are so many great community movers and shakers, projects and of courseMarketN13 !The takeover of our high streets by betting shops, pawnshops and corporate chains, means that the local community and businesses are suffering from a lack of choice and trade.

MarketN13 is here to give you an alternative
and we NEED your support.
Find out about who is trading and events atFacebook and  Twitter

In the coming months we will be asking for your help with:

  • how we can give you what you want
  • making the market sustainable
  • volunteer recruitment

If you would like to take a stall, volunteer or more information please do get in touch

COME and see us on Sunday!!!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for signing the Save The Green Dragon, Winchmore Hill petition.

This is a critical time for the Save The Green Dragon campaign. We are fighting to save the pub using every available means and are waiting for the council to process the petition and our application to have the pub listed as an Asset Of Community Value, however, at the same time, the developers who have bought The Green Dragon have now made an approach to the council regarding their intention to turn the pub/site into flats.

PUBLIC MEETING THIS THURSDAY 26th MARCH, upstairs at The Kings Head, Winchmore Hill Green at 7.30

We are holding a public meeting in order to bring the community together, to hear your views, to update you on our progress so far and to gather support from the people of Winchmore Hill and surrounding areas for the battle which lies ahead of us.

This campaign CAN be won but it will take the support of the local community. Only yesterday The Queensbury pub in Willesden Green was saved after a campaign, by a very similar community group to ours, managed to defeat Fairview Homes and their plan to build a towerblock on the site of their pub.

A good turnout at our meeting could be very important for us, local MPs, councillors, council planning representatives and newspapers will be present. A large turnout will show them the strength of feeling within our community and may influence how much support they offer us in the future.

Please don’t allow yourself to believe that everything is going to be ok and that The Green Dragon will soon be a nice new pub or restaurant. This will not happen unless we make it happen! If this campaign fails then The Green Dragon will be knocked down or converted into flats or a supermarket or both, and that is a fact.

Under good management and with some investment The Green Dragon can again be a brilliant pub and a vibrant centre of the community. We have had contact from companies who wish to do exactly this.

Without The Green Dragon, this part of Winchmore Hill will become another faceless section of Green Lanes, a supermarket could kill the independant shops in the surrounding area, and the local community would be left with no traditional pub between Bush Hill Park and Winchmore Hill Green

Please, if you care about The Green Dragon and the 300 years of history it represents, come to the meeting. If we all leave it to somebody else then nobody will show up, if we all take an hour or so out of our lives for something we really care about then we can make a big difference and can save the pub for our community and for the generations who will follow.

Many thanks, we hope to see you on Thursday


The Save The Green Dragon Team
