Transition Belsize is a community group in the NW3 area of London seeking to design a better future for our local area. Our aim is to come up with a vision of a greener and happier Belsize, to strengthen community through fun, useful and sociable activities. If you live, work or play in NW3, then you’re very welcome to join us.
Transition Belsize strongly supports the campaign calling on Tesco not to open (another) Tesco Express in Belsize Park. The supermarket chain is currently looking to open a shop at the former HSBC site on the corner of Haverstock Hill and Belsize Grove. This would be a serious threat to the other independent food retailers along Haverstock Hill, including Budgens and its Post Office, as well as creating traffic chaos with deliveries similarly to what already occurs along England’s Lane.
On Monday 29th October, groups of children from the Rosary primary school on Haverstock Hill visited the Transition Belsize growing site at the Royal Free hospital to harvest the rows of maize which they had helped to plant and tend throughout the growing season.
Many thanks to Trumpet London for sponsoring the site and to all the many volunteers who helped keep the site watered during the dry summer!
