Making Palmers Green Fabulous again!
Hi everyone and thanks again for taking time to read my article. I have lived in Palmers Green for nearly 50 years, I went to school in Palmers Green and was a Hazelwood Parent for the better part of 2 decades and a have owned a business on the high street for the same amount of time, personally I feel my roots are firmly planted here and I have seen and lived through many changes.
The last few years have been the most challenging for Palmers Green, the disruption to the high street to accommodate the cycle lanes and people opting to shop online rather than support their local high street has all had an impact. High streets all over the country has been in decline for years. At the end of 2016 we had two empty shops however in as little over 2 years, this has risen to over 20 shops! Like the saying goes “when the going gets tough the tough gets going” and that’s exactly what our community has done. In the last few months we have seen The Palmers Green Action team organise a mass spring clean. This group consists of local residents and mums getting together and rallying the community to clean shop fronts, flower beds and adding to the high street with potted trees. You may have noticed how many shops now have hanging baskets and potted trees, I would personally like to thank The PGAT for their efforts in making it such a successful day.
More recently the Green Lanes Business Association annual Carnival returned to Palmers Green. Local business got together to organise a day of festivities along Green Lanes a day when residents are encouraged to explore their high street and parents can bring their children to watch local dancers from different cultures preform. The Punch & Judy was a great addition, keeping children enthralled for hours and with so many different acts on show and fortunately the weather holding out this was another great day for the community.
I urge you to support our high street, explore what it has to offer, shop locally and keep Palmers Green vibrant. Discover what's happens in Palmers Green on Facebook, Instagram,Twitter by following Lovepalmersgreen or check the website www.lovepalmersgreen.com.

"I wanted a local Estate Agent and Anthony Webbâ€™s shop looked good and was well organised. The staff were very friendly, helpful and not at all pushy. The entire process was efficient."
