Spring in Markfield Park

Last November we planted 1000 daffodil bulbs for a good display in the Spring!

With some of Markfield's trees down in last year's storms, it was all the more important to get bulbs planted.

Get involved & out in the fresh air making a difference to ourselves & to our neighbourhood! - See the Conservation page for more outdoor fun!

We applaud Neil Gage from Haringey Council IT Services, who will be running for our Haringey Parks in the London Marathon 2016 on Sunday 24 April.

We thank you and wish you the very best of luck, Neil!

"I work in IT Services and have worked for Haringey Council for around 15 years now. My main sporting passions are football and cycling, but I do a bit of running too! I run as regularly as I can with a group of colleagues from the council, once or twice a week after work. We tend to make full use of the local parks and green spaces including Wood Green common, Alexandra Palace Park, Highgate Wood and Queens Wood.

Neil Gage who will run for Haringey Parks in the London Marathon 2016 - Go Neil!

"This isn't a new year's resolution as such as I've always wanted to try and run the London Marathon - my usual distance is just 5K so this is a significant step up and so to get this opportunity to do it (after many years of failing in the general ballot) gives me the chance to fulfil this ambition whilst also help to raise some money for the excellent Haringey Parks. As Tony said [who ran last year], I am obviously aware of the financial pressures of the park so anything I can raise to support the superb work of the parks team and the friends groups will be brilliant." - Neil Gage

"Since the last round of savings, I have been aware of the constant pressure our parks in Haringey face. Clearly any money I can help raise, by running the marathon, will help the friends forum continue the great work they do in supporting their green spaces." - Tony Healey, London Marathon 2015

The Forum is the independent and very successful umbrella organisation and network for the 40+ local Friends of Parks groups of Haringey residents who are active in 'taking ownership' of, promoting, protecting and improving our parks and open spaces. Friends groups organise regular meetings of the Forum every 2 months, attended and supported by the Parks Service. The Council is publicly committed to active partnership working with Friends groups and the Forum.

The money raised by donations for Neil and his Marathon run will go towards the Forum's work, including the publication of Walking Guides for borough-wide walks showcasing Haringey's fantastic green spaces.

Go Neil! - Run for Us & Our Precious Green Spaces!
