Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I am very sad to share the news that  Andy Newman of The Gardens Residents Association was taken ill suddenly and passed away on Sunday 24th October 2021.

Obviously this is a great shock to all who knew Andy. He was a great champion of his neighbourhood and was deeply involved in community life in Harringay. He leaves behind a lasting legacy including The Gardens Community Garden, the creation of which he led from a disused and vandalised railway tunnel and approach.

For those who didn't know him, there's a short video half-way down the page  here of Andy talking to briefly camera about a community event almost ten years ago.

I've been in touch with his partner, Karen, and she's asked me to pass on thanks from her and her children, Amber and Jasper, for the kind messages they received last week.

Very sad news, he was a lovely man and worked tirelessly for the community, my children and I enjoyed many of the events he organised and he will be greatly missed. Sending love to his family. 

Following the funeral on 11 November,  Andy's family have arranged a celebration of his life and work from 2-2.30pm at the Gardens Community Garden in Doncaster Gardens, followed by a wake at the Salisbury.
