345 Pre-school at the Friends Meeting House in Church Crescent had its funding for a wildlife garden threatened in the summer, but following representation by the Hornsey and Wood Green MP, the money was reinstated. The Liberal Democrat MP on Saturday did the honours of planting a tree, as part of the centenary celebration of the Muswell Hill Quakers, who house the pre-school.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“It was a real blow to the children when the promised funding was taken away, but it’s great that the council has finally stepped up to make sure the planting could go ahead.

“It’s a real honour to be planting one the first trees in what will hopefully be a wonderful green space for the children to learn, explore and have fun in.”
