    Enfield Council has awarded over £100,000 to community heritage projects as part of a ‘Stories of Enfield’ programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. ‘Stories of Enfield’ has brought together groups from across the borough to share ideas about Enfield’s heritage and to receive training in planning and delivering cultural heritage work.

    A total of 32 groups put forward ideas and a steering group including local residents selected the best projects to take forward. In all, 13 community heritage projects will receive National Lottery funding through the scheme, all of which will explore aspects of Enfield’s heritage and provide exciting opportunities for borough residents.

    The projects reflect the rich and diverse identity of Enfield, including the histories of different cultural groups, buildings, parks and rivers. Residents will have the opportunity to attend story telling sessions, follow poetry and art trails, visit exhibitions, watch a new short film about and take part in learning about and celebrating the borough’s history.

    All the projects will be developed and delivered over the following year, running from October 2021 to November 2022. Read more about the granted projects by clicking here.

    Enfield Council has signed an agreement with the Mayor of London which means £2.2m will be spent to deliver major regeneration works in Edmonton and create a better town centre. The Council decided on 20 October to match fund the £1.1m it has been awarded from the Good Growth Fund – the Greater London Authority’s £70million programme designed to support growth and community development in London.

    The decision means the cash can now be used to improve the look and feel of Angel Edmonton, provide a community hub with better library services, 30 affordable workspaces to increase employment and skills in the area, and a school street to help improve air quality.

    The project will also help address concerns raised by the community and the Council is already working closely with local partners, community groups and businesses to make sure the work carried out meets the needs of people who live and work in the area.

    Cash raised from Enfield Council’s flagship £6 billion Meridian Water project is being spent on street cleaning in Edmonton to improve the quality of residents’ lives. A dedicated clean-up team is now in place which will regularly patrol the area around Fore Street and the Joyce and Snells estate as part of wider efforts by the Council to tackle problems identified by residents and businesses.

    The money funds the new dedicated cleaning team and this programme will be expanded to tackle crime and disorder – another issue raised as a concern by people living and working in the borough. This will enable the recruitment of specialist officers to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area.
