Turning Waste into Energy in North London

Everyone should play their part in protecting the environment and help with the climate emergency. North London Waste Authority has been playing their part for 50 years, and they have big plans to continue to do so.

By using rubbish that can’t be recycled to generate electricity is something that they have been doing at their EcoPark. EcoPark has used 21 million tonnes of waste and has served north London extremely well, and with the planned updating of the facility they will be able to continue to do so.

The EcoPark will:

  • Generate electricity for more than 127,000 homes
  • Supply hot water and heating for up to at least 50,000 local homes and businesses. This means no gas boilers.
  • Improve local air quality by using the most advanced technology to capture emissions
  • Save as much carbon as taking 110,000 cars off the road each year
  • Contribute to achieving 50% household recycling rates

The new EcoPark will provide the very best facilities to treat north London’s rubbish, whilst also helping to clean up air quality. And, they’re constantly looking for pioneering ways to make the EcoPark greener. That’s why they are accelerating their plan to fit Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology. We’re building the Energy Recovery Facility ready for adaptation to CCS as soon as the technology is available in north London. This will strengthen their efforts to tackle the climate emergency and support the UK’s overall effort to achieve Net Zero.

The Edmonton EcoPark is something that everyone should understand and support.

Primrose Hill will open overnight again

It has been announced that Primrose Hill will open again for 24 hours a day.

The park had gates around the entrances especially during the lockdown period, as it saw people gathering there in the evenings, drinking and playing loud music.

Now that the colder weather has arrived, and pubs, restaurants, and venues are open, less public nuisance is expected.

Primrose Hill, right at the top, has one of London’s best views, and not people can enjoy it again during the day or the evening.

Remembering Amy Winehouse: 10 years on

July 23 2021 marks a decade since one of the most talented singers in music history passed away at the age of 27. Amy Winehouse was not just an artist but an iconic, generous, intelligent and a remarkable woman who changed the music and fashion industry forever.

By Alžbeta Bulíková

Her albums (Frank, 2003 and Back To Black, 2006) opened the door to many artists who got inspired by her artistry (Adele, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith..). Amy Winehouse was raised in Southgate, London but later on moved to Camden where she lived until her very last day. Camden was her home and a place that made her very happy and joyful. Once, she described Camden to her father Mitch as her “playground”. From Jazz Café to Hawley Arms, that’s where you would find her, having fun and being the real and kind girl who loved people and Camden so much.

10 years on, and it still feels like Amy Winehouse never left. Her energy, her music are in almost every corner of Camden. She is the face of it. Local people in Camden, who own the shops or live here, remember her as at generous and down to earth human being – no matter what she was going through.

Amy-Winehouse

Her very last public appearance was on 20 July 2011 in Roundhouse, Chalk Farm where she joined her goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, on the stage. On this day, as every year, fans come to Camden to celebrate Amy and keep her legacy alive. Amy Winehouse was and always will be the queen of Camden. She will be remembered forever, for being a remarkable artist, fashion icon and an idol who taught people to be honest and always themselves.

If you are an Amy Winehouse fan or are more interested in her these are the places you should check out while visiting Camden!

30 Camden Square

This is the place where Amy Winehouse passed away in 2011. Since her passing fans tend to visit this street, leave flowers and notes across the road.

Camden Market and the statue

The famous life-size statue of Amy is very easy to be found in the heart of Camden itself. Not only fans but also tourists come here to take photos of it and walk around the market since it was her favourite place.

Hawley Arms and The Good Mixer

If Amy Winehouse would go to a pub in Camden, it would be Hawley Arms or The Good Mixer where you could find her playing pool. Amy’s fans love to visit both of these places since she spent a lot of her time there.

Jeffrey’s Place and Prowse Place

Both of these flats used belong to Amy until she passed. These locations are recognisable as Amy was regularly photographed here.

From all her fans, and the people of Camden Town: Amy, you are forever in our hearts.
