A local MP and mayor joined a community group on Sunday to celebrate its fifth anniversary supporting Alexandra Palace Station.

The special event of the Friends of Ally Pally Station on June 6 saw local artist Edward Quigley unveil a mural in the foyer, and the opening of a new community shed in the Bedford Rose Garden.

Hornsey and Wood Green MP Catherine West and the mayor of Haringey Cllr Adam Jogee attended the celebration, which saw local musicians play to residents and station volunteers.

Michael Solomon Williams, founder of the Friends of Ally Pally Station, said: “It has been a hugely inspiring five years at the station, which has brought hundreds of people together for our many community projects, and transformed the experience of thousands of station users. I’m delighted that we celebrated this milestone with three projects which will really lift everything to the next level.” 

The Friends of Ally Pally Station is a rail user group that was set up in 2016 to create a community garden and to improve the environment of the station.
