The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance takes over Corrib Rest site

As regular attenders of our monthly meetings and readers of Queen’s Park News already know, our Corrib action group has been actively engaged with the new lease holders of the building on Salusbury Road that used to be the Corrib Rest pub to make sure that the site remains available for community use. There will be a brief update at the Association’s May monthly meeting on Thursday 13th. The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance’s  newsletters may be of interest:

Local Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs)

We have expanded our Streetscape action group recently due to the great interest in LTNs and Brent’s plans to introduce them in the QPARA area.

Marina Cantacuzino, a member of the expanded group, has been compiling a dossier of reports and studies into LTNs. Here is a link to the latest version of the dossier updated today containing links and extracts from over 70 reports.

Call for food donations for local Christmas deliveries

A call out for food donations – a few of the local initiatives are short of donations over the next two weeks, partly because schools have broken up and collections are no longer possible. They are very keen to collect as much pasta, rice, tuna, tinned tomatoes, fruit and veg as possible over the weekend both for parcels on Monday and to share with the Granville for their midweek deliveries. Home pick-up of donations is possible and we will also be around the Farmers Market and 22 Lonsdale Rd on Sunday. More info at bit.ly/helpourhungry

Tier 3 and Queen’s Park’s facilities

page1image18175888

London moves into Tier 3: Very High Alert

From December 16, London has been placed in Tier 3: Very High Alert to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Most of the facilities can continue to operate with strict measures in place to reduce the risk of virus transmission.

This includes:

  • Parliament Hill Athletics Track
  • Tennis courts at Parliament Hill, Golders Hill Park and Queen’s Park
  • The Parliament Hill Fields Lido
  • The Highgate Men’s Bathing Pond and the Kenwood Ladies’ Bathing
  • Pond
  • Small weddings – 15 people or less (Golders Hill Park and Queen’s Park)
  • Pitch and Putt (Queen’s Park)
  • Guardians Gym (at the Lido)
  • Trim Trails at Hampstead Heath, Highgate Wood and Queen’s Park
  • Football and Rugby
  • Volunteering
  • Licenced Events e.g. Be Military Fit and the Hampstead Winter Swimming Club
  • Cafés (takeaway only)

We have had to close the Children’s Farm at Queen’s Park and the Peggy Jay Centre on Hampstead Heath. Keat’s House will also be temporarily closed until further notice.

The public toilets remain open as will the playgrounds and car parks. We will continue to empty litter bins, although we do still ask that visitors take their rubbish and waste away with them wherever possible.

Queen’s Park, Highgate Wood and Golders Hill Park (including the Hill Garden & Pergola) opening hours will remain as advertised.

We expect to be busy during this next phase of the Coronavirus restrictions as people continue to socialise outdoors and we will continue to use our social

media channels to remind visitors to follow the Government advice, the byelaws and to be considerate towards staff and other visitors.

Please share this update with your contacts and thank you for your support during this time.
