We did formally suggest to the waste authority that, with the North London Waste Plan (NLWP) derailed, now was the ideal time to take stock, and work together on a sensible and sustainable plan for north London’s waste.
However, they have taken no notice; they're going to forget the waste plan, and get on with their procurement anyway. If this sounds outrageous and ominous, that’s because it is both.
It hardly needs saying, but collective action and fundraising are more vital than ever to our chances of stopping them. News on responding to the current Haringey consultation will follow very soon, and we must push for as many responses as possible.
Emma Kirkby fundraiser on 7 October
It’s barely a week until we have another chance to see world-renowned soprano Dame Emma Kirkby perform right on our doorsteps.
Please make a real effort to come, and tell your friends (even the ones who don’t have the shadow of a waste factory hanging over them... ). Music lovers will jump at the chance to hear her in such an intimate venue, and at a bargain price.
Her recital will be at 4pm on Sunday 7 October, at St Andrew's Church, Alexandra Park Road, N10 2DD. It's £15 for adults, and £10 for under-16s.
Her last concert for us was a sellout - don't leave it to the last minute!
Find out more and book your tickets now.
Emma will be accompanied by lutenist Jakob Lindberg, and we are extremely grateful to both of them for their generosity.
See you on Sunday 7th, and, before that, our thoughts on responding to the consultation will be with you shortly.
Don't forget you can follow us on Twitter, join the Facebook Group, and make a donation here.
