HWA Car park.
For those of you not familiar with the
Hadley Wood Association Car Park it is
the parking area just past the Tennis
Courts in Crescent East. It is really for the
use of staff and other users of the Hadley
However over the past few years it has
become clear that it is a useful parking
area for parents taking their children to
the Hadley Wood Primary school. The
Association has permitted this facility free
of charge on the basis that it is a help to
Two problems have resulted from our
neighbourly attitude. Commuters have
started using the drive down to the car
park parking with two wheels on the
verge and thus converting the two way
access road to one way. No amount of
notices on these cars has stopped this
practice which has caused extensive
damage to the verge and endless
irritation to users. The other problem is
that heavy use of the car park has caused
its rapid disintegration only five years
after it was last resurfaced.
The Association under Graham Sharp
the Chairman has thus had to raise
£45,000, a big sum for what is basically a
village hall. Happily we have received a
grant of £10,000 from the Enfield Council
(please see the letter from Paul
McCannah) which has been a major help
and for which we are very very grateful.
Work will start in August during which
time the car park will be closed. Two
important issues remain.
How do we prevent commuters leaving
their cars there all day and how can we
make some modest charge to car
park users to fund the inevitable repairs
in about 10 years time? These issues
are under discussion at the moment
and we would welcome any sensible
Parking at the shops in
It is clear that the current parking system
outside our shopping parade is not
helpful to retailers or customers. The
petition asking Enfield for help with a new
system collected 400 names and
addresses and was delivered to the
Council on July 17th.
Since then we have received their reply
stating that they received the petition and
will now endeavour to secure funding to
progress the surveys and consultations
necessary to introduce Pay and Display
at the shops. They point out that
obtaining the views of all concerned and
then designing the best possible scheme
is a lengthy and expensive process.
They also mention that the Council has
no free period in any of its on-street Pay
and Display areas and that currently
approved charges range from 30p for 15
mins to £2.40 for up to 2 hours. This
seems a positive and realistic response
from the Council and we look forward to
the consultation process.

Tom Adams. WW2 pilot
How often do you find yourself talking to
a humorous 91 year old who has flown
Tiger Moths, Hurricanes and Spitfires?
Rarely? Quite. I went to see him. Shirley
his wife of 60 years, sits by calmly
passing out the tea and cakes and
makes the (very) occasional correction.
Tom lived in Beech Hill Avenue, Hadley
Wood as a young man, eventually
leaving school and starting to train as a
surveyor in Fleet St. Salary £1 a week.
Then the war started. After a short spell in
the Home Guard (based in the Hadley
Wood Golf Club) he cleared his desk and
aged 19 years set off to join the RAF.
With 50 other hopefuls on August 18th
1941 he was summoned to Lord’s
cricket ground to experience the
traditional Medical Examination. (In those
days this involved sticking ones tongue
out and dropping one’s trousers). There

Tom, at the Air Crew Receiving Centre.
ACRC known to all and sundry as Arsy
Tarsy. At this stage of the war, America in
general and General Arnold in particular
had offered the British government
training programmes in America for
pilots. Preliminary training in the UK was
set up and Tom, amongst others, was
chosen. This meant going for basic
training at St Andrews in Scotland. “First
I was at the home of cricket and then the
home of golf” said Tom. “I did try playing
golf on the Old Course but golf balls
were five shillings each and I only had
three. Had to give up after three holes as
I had lost them all!” Whilst there they
were all given various injections and
vaccinations. One day they were being
marched about the parade ground ( at
40 paces/min) by a regular RAF corporal.
They had to shout out their numbers.
“Numbering off from the left” ordered
the Corporal. The squaddies responded.
ONE TWO THREE. The seventh chap
had a very high voice, SEVEN came out
in a penetrating falsetto. “ I thought you’d
been inoculated not castrated’ roared the
Corporal. Tom shakes with laughter
thinking about it.
Examinations were passed and Tom
was transferred to Wolverhampton for
actual flying training. Never having been
in an airplane in his life he started off in a
Tiger Moth with the instructor behind him.
Open cockpits and goggles. In January.
“Some of the lads who went on to fly over
Europe had never left their villages before
the war, never mind our shores”. Tom tells
me soberly. Seven hours in Tiger Moths
followed over the next three weeks and
he was deemed suitable for the American
course. Sailing to the USA in the Chateau
Thierry, Tom remembers the trip mainly
for being hungry.
Only two meals a day and no canteen.
Once there they were greeted by a large
Texan with a gun in his holster telling the
young Brits to do as they were told or
they would be shot.
“The Yanks had only been in the war for
three weeks at that stage and were
supposed to be on our side” says Tom
wryly. Eventually he reached Lakeland in
Florida to receive the promised training.
Three ten week courses in Stearman PT
17 biplanes learning to glide, deal with
mock engine failure and learning to get
out of spins (a deadly problem in those
early aeroplanes). The course lasted
nine months with 25% of the intake failing
the course. Not Tom. Next was Georgia
Alabama for experience in Harvard
Trainers alongside young American
trainees. The Americans had various
marching songs. ’Nothing can stop the
Army Air Corps’ they sang as they
marched. “Except the weather” sang the
Brits joyfully in response. Not that the
banter was one sided. How did you
navigate the planes I ask. “Just visually”
replies Tom. “The Mississipi was a useful
landmark” One evening off a week for
Down in that part of America there was
much poverty especially among the black
community. Blacks had a low profile and
it was only in the last year of the war that
they started coming through as flyers.
“Hard to imagine or understand now”
says Tom “But that’s how it was in those
days” Tom passed everything including a
gunnery course and in 1942 was
commissioned as a Pilot Officer.
Anxious to see some action he was
disappointed to be sent as an instructor
to Greenville to teach new batches of
trainees in Vultee Valiants. “We called ‘em
Vultee Vibrators” chuckles Tom. Finally he
was sent back to the UK on the Queen
Elizabeth. Unescorted. This caused a
certain amount of consternation as U
boats were sinking a lot of Allied shipping
at that time.
All went well however and he was sent
to a centre near Shrewsbury on a final
training course before joining an RAF
squadron. Then to Egypt and Palestine
on the Capetown Castle and eventually
Poona for a course on liaison with the
Army, low level flying and jungle survival.
Finally he was moved to Burma where
he and the rest of his squadron flying
mostly Hurricanes were to harry the
retreating Japanese. “The Hurricanes
were fairly old and battered” grins Tom.
“We flew from Meiktelah south of
Their job was to support Allied troops
on the ground, identifying enemy
positions and photographing their
whereabouts. They were often rewarded
with bullet holes through their fuselages.
“What about parachute training?” I ask.
“No parachutes” says Tom. “Too close to
the trees. You really did not want to go
down in the jungle anyway. The Japs did
not like us. They took no prisoners”.
Tom’s squadron flew in pairs along the

Life changed. Living in Beech Hill

Tom married Shirley. They met at a party
in Camlet Way and celebrated their
Diamond wedding last month. I leave him
laughing and cheerful as always. “Come
back and see me soon” he says.
I posted information early this year on an
exciting pioneer development for those
interested in planning for later years. This
is the Older Women’s Cohousing
Community in Union St. High Barnet.
It will be the first community of its kind
in the country-that is run for and by an
older group of individuals signed up to be
neighbourly. Barnet granted planning
permission for this in April.
Now as tender documents are
prepared for the necessary demolition
and construction process we as a group
are looking for additional members-those
who can buy and those who are eligible
Two thirds of the flats will be for
purchase and a third will be rented on
housing association terms.
All the flats will have balconies or patios
and are a reasonable size. We will have a
common room and guest room and will
share a large garden and vegetable
patch which we intend to work between
us. Completion of the project is set for
sometime in 2015.
Meanwhile we are recruiting. We have
held an information drop-in in June with
plans and a 3 dimensional model. You
can get further information on
www.owch.org.uk and there is a similar
but mixed gender scheme in Muswell Hill
Bonfire and Fireworks
After considerable thought and
discussion, it is with regret that we have
to announce that the Hadley Wood
Association will not be hosting Fireworks
night this year.
This decision has not been taken lightly
as we know how many of you in our
community enjoy this event and have
attended for many years.
There are two principal reasons for this
decision: First, as I know you will
appreciate, the administrative burden
in organising this event is considerable
long valleys lined by hills. They had to
keep beneath the cloud canopy in order
to see where they were and to observe
enemy activity. “Worst moment?” I ask. “It
was quite difficult to judge when to pull
up at the end of the valley” says Tom. “On
one occasion I had to pull up the plane
very steeply when the auxiliary fuel tank
which was in use was torn off. The engine
stalled immediately. Not a good

As you will all be aware, our Primary
school is quite little compared to most,
so you can imagine our excitement
when, on Thursday 4th July a group of
Year 4 children from Hadley Wood
School represented Enfield in the
Balfour Beatty sponsored London
Youth Games, which were held at
Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.
The London borough of Enfield was
one of 32 London boroughs who
participated in the games. We won our
right to represent our authority by
winning the All Enfield tournament
earlier in the term.
We are especially grateful to Chris
Hepworth from the Hadley Wood
Tennis Association and to the
Association themselves who allow our
classes to use the courts for their
lessons. It is obviously working very
The Games began with a ‘round
robin’ box league tournament. Hadley
Wood played Fox Primary from the
borough of Kensington and
Westminster, New End Primary from
Camden and Birkbeck Primary from
Bexley. Hadley Wood successfully won
through to the next round and were
only finally defeated in the semi-finals.
Congratulations to Jasper Wax,
Reanne Gardner, Thadeus Hays and
Tallulah Miel who all played brilliantly
and showed great sportsmanship.
This was a fantastic opportunity for the
children and a truly memorable day for
all those who took part. Well done,

residents Michael Gavin (40) son Conor
(13) and Michaels father Martin (68).
These three generations of the Gavin
family took part in the Josie Reddington
Foundation Charity Cycle in Ireland
counties Mayo Galway on Saturday
June 2013. Starting and ending at
Bohola the route included Castlebar,
Westport Ballinrobe Claremorris, Knock
Both Michael and his father
undertook the 100 mile bike ride while
son Conor did the 13 mile ride.
Altogether they raised over £950 for this
Foundation. It was Michael Gavin and
his firm MPG Ltd that in 2011 were
responsible for a major voluntary
project at Hadley Wood Primary
School, including installing several
planters, clearing the pond area and
laying several tons of shingle.
This made a huge improvement to
the school surroundings. It was a most
generous and community minded
gesture which has been widely
appreciated by the children at the
school, their parents and the staff.

From Councillor Paul
My ward colleagues and I have recently
been pleased to support Hadley Wood
residents to secure funding from Enfield
Council for two important local projects.
Readers will be aware that the community
playground has recently been
transformed from a rather run-down and
unappealing facility into a modern,
attractive and accessible facility for local
residents and their children.
This is the result of the tireless work of
a number of local families who developed
the vision for the new playground and
raised very significant sums of money
towards the renovation.
As part of their fundraising efforts the
parents approached my ward colleagues
and I to see whether we could secure any
funding from Enfield Council.
We were pleased to work with them on
this and delighted to be able to secure
£20,000 towards the costs of the new
Last month, working in partnership with
the Hadley Wood Association, we
secured £10,000 towards the cost of
resurfacing the car park.
The original bid for this was actually
submitted in 2012 but there have been
some legal issues which slowed things
However, we eventually managed to
resolve these satisfactorily.
The playground and the car park are
well-used facilities that help to make
Hadley Wood an even better place to live
and we hope that residents will enjoy the

Letter from America
I have just been catching up with the HW
news. I was particularly interested in the
article about the Proms, especially the
anecdote relating to Carl Orff''s Carmina
Burana (I hope I've spelt that correctly!) I
remember enjoying the TV production
immensely and was highly amused when
the local paper referred to it in their TV
guide as Carmina Miranda.
An exotic Brazilian singer and dancer
who was very popular at that time was
called Carmen Miranda.
I also recall that one passage of the
catchy music was used as background
music in an advert for Old Spice After
And a joke went the rounds about a
man who took his dog into a pub and
asked the bartender if he would give him
a free drink if he could prove the dog
could talk. When he agreed he asked the
dog to name a choral composer and it
gave a husky growl of orff.
The bartender wasn't impressed and as
they left the dog looked up dejectedly
saying maybe I should have said
Shostakovich”. I have wasted enough of
your time with my remniscences !

It was an event shared by the
parishoners of St. Mary’s Church who put
on a very tasty ‘Cream Tea’ for those of
us who prefer a cuppa to a cold Pimms.
This was to raise money for Church
Funds. There was a cooling bar, a sizzling
BBQ and lots of stalls and activities for
the many children.
The Ice Cream van had a perpetual
queue and the bouncy castle never
stopped bouncing. The parents and

and perfectly presented pedigrees.

all and prizes for many.

admiration and laugh out loud at the
hilarious doggy (and human) antics!
