ABOUT  A website dedicated to the history of Summerhill Road Tottenham that includes memories and photographs from residents both past and present.
The website has since developed into a Local History for Tottenham in general and includes many fascinating history snippets and further historic photographs and social history from Tottenham's past.

 


 
We have recently received from Scott Robertson, on behalf of the former neighbours of my late brother in Summerhill Road, a number of lovely photographs that show the small commemorative garden that has been adopted at the foot of Summerhill Road in memory of Ray Swain who died in Sept 2018. 
 
 
The floral display is wonderful but in particular we are so pleased to see the abundance of poppies.  

                                                                                                                        

A relatively large number of special poppy seed packs were handed out at Ray's funeral reception  which symbolised his long serving commitment to War Memorials throughout Tottenham and it is wonderful to see them flourish as a testament to the extensive work he conducted over many years.

WEST GREEN MEMORIAL
WW1 - WEST GREEN MEMORIAL - UPDATE NOVEMBER 2020
 
                     ************************************************************
Sadly, due to the Covid 19 Restrictions, there was no formal Remembrance Day ceremony held at the memorial in 2020, although we have subsequently heard that a few people had gathered there to lay wreaths.
 

It is hoped that a commemoration sevice will be held again in 2021, when once again we can honour the brave men of West Green

Thank you for your support  -
