The Muswell Hill & Fortis Green Association needs a Newsletter Editor

The eight-page Newsletter is published every two months and is circulated by email and post to over 700 members. See https://mhfga.org/category/newsletters/.

As Newsletter Editor, you would also be a Committee member and play a role in running the Association and setting its policies.

Much of the Newsletter contents would come from other Committee members – including Planning, Environment, Transport, Membership, Press & PR & Events – and correspondence from members.

What the role involves:

  • collect and write stories about our local area and information about the Association’s activities and achievements;
  • liaise with the Committee and members to source articles and pictures;
  • make sure that the newsletter covers all relevant information and that the material is received on time for publication;
  • make sure relevant permissions to use articles, photos and members’ personal information have been received.

Interested? Please contact MHFGA Chairman, John Hajdu, hajdu.clarion@talk21.com.

From Saturday 4 February, Transport for London is making some changes to bus routes in north London.

Affected are routes 234, 263 and 271.

See the TFL website for all details and click HERE for a map showing the changes.

In particular,

  • Route 234 will be extended and will run beyond Highgate Wood to Archway calling at stops on Archway Road, including stops near Archway and Highgate stations (for the Northern line).
  • Route 263 will be re-routed and run via North Hill, North Road, Highgate Village, Highgate Hill and Whittington Hospital. So, it will no longer serve stops on Archway Road between Highgate Wood and Archway station. For travel in this area, use extended route 234.
  • Route 271 will be withdrawn and there will no more be direct connection between Highgate Village and Moorgate.
  • New night bus N271 will be introduced and run between Moorgate, Finsbury Square and North Finchley via Highgate Village and Finchley Memorial Hospital. The service will run every 30 minutes every night of the week and serve all stops currently served by overnight services on the 24-hour route 271.
