Scratchwood is an area on the edge of North London.

It was the former name of the London Gateway Services, named after woodland lying between the present M1 and A1.

One of the apocryphal stories of London is that the guns of HMS Belfast, moored next to City Hall, are trained on Stratchwood Services.

Poetry society celebrates tenth anniversary
It was ten years ago when Judy Karbritz, Harrow’s Community Poet, and Pattie Greenberg met for lunch. Judy had come from the studios where she had interviewed the late Danny Abse for a radio show she was presenting about Jewish poets and poetry. Pattie asked her whether there was a Jewish Poetry Society and Judy replied that there was about to be.
