Local bands and groups played, namely ... read more...

About

SPACES is an organisation that represents residents in Alston, Calvert, Puller and Sebright Roads of High Barnet in matters relating to planning and traffic.   It was formed in 1995 after a famous fight to prevent the demolition of a house (17 Calvert Road) that was well over 100 years old and the building of a small block of flats instead.   The fight involved over 70 residents going to Hendon Town Hall to influence the decision of a crucial meeting of Barnet Council.   We are often asked what SPACES stands for:   it is Sebright, Puller, Alston and Calvert Environmental Society.   We tend not to advertise this too widely as the “Environmental” tag can be taken to suggest that we have a wider range of activities than is the... read more...
