The quarterly skip will be arriving this weekend (Friday 4th August) and we have requested that it be placed near the Highbury Centre. As always we would ask that everyone is careful to place all rubbish inside the skip and not allow anything to overflow onto the roadway or pavement and also a reminder that it is for garden and household waste items only and should not be used for building waste.
British Gas are undertaking major repair work on Highbury Grove over the next few weeks and there will be some disruption to our entrance/exit from Aberdeen Park. At some point they will close the entrance on one side so that all traffic will have to go out and come in through the same side. Unfortunately they didn't inform us in advance and they have not made any provision for controlling traffic flow from and to Highbury Grove.
In order to make access easier and safer during this period only the Board has decided to open the gates leading to Aberdeen Road so that cars can enter and exit Aberdeen Park safely.
The gates will be open from today (31st May 2017) until the gas repairs are complete.
All residents are invited to a Summer Party to be held at the Florence Trust, St Saviour's Church, Aberdeen Park on Thursday 6th July 2017 from 6.30 to 9.30pm.

The quarterly skip will be arriving Friday 5th May and will be available over the weekend for the disposal of household rubbish. It will be placed near St Saviour's Church and will be collected on Monday. Please could you make sure that the skip is not overfilled and that large items are dismantled as far as possible. Builders waste should not be placed in the skip as it is for household and garden waste only. Also please note that paint should not be put into the skip - if you have paint to dispose of, please contact Islington Council who have a collection service for paint and other hazardous chemicals.
