A momentous day for the Trust, as Central Square has been handed over to us from the London Borough of Barnet on a 999-year lease.
We were honoured to be joined by the Worshipful the Mayor of Barnet Cllr Alison Moore, and she joined Trust chairman Raymond Taylor and trustee Richard Townley, in addressing the invited gathering of a number of representatives of Suburb organisations and others who have been involved in this process, along with staff and other trustees of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust.
A bench has been placed on Central Square with a plaque to commemorate this historic transfer, which is the culmination of many years' collaboration between Barnet and the Trust.
Tribute was paid to the Trust's previous chairman Richard Wiseman who sadly passed away only recently.
The transfer of Central Square marks a continuation of the Trust's stewardship of Hampstead Garden Suburb in our duty to preserve the character and amenity of this special place.

The Trust's 2021 Annual General Meeting is to be held on Thursday 30 September 2021 in-person at Fellowship House, and streamed via YouTube.
The safety concerns raised by the Covid-19 pandemic compelled the Trust to hold last year’s AGM on-line via Zoom. While we were pleased that so many Members could join us, we believe that conditions are now right to offer the option of attending the meeting in person. We are therefore pleased to announce that the 2021 Trust AGM will be held at Fellowship House for those wishing to attend in person; and as a live-streamed event on YouTube for anyone preferring to attend remotely. In order to make safest use of the hall, attendance in person will be limited to the first 30 applicants.
Formal business will commence at 8.00pm but the doors will be open from 7.30pm, allowing a period for informal conversation over light refreshments before the formal business of the evening.
Details of the meeting and how to attend are set out in the formal Notice on the reverse of this letter (PDF), copies of which will shortly be sent out to Members by post along with a copy of this year's Annual Report and Accounts. For more information on Trust Membership, click here.
Suburb residents who want to check if they are currently a Trust Member are asked to email the Membership Secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org with details of their full name and residential address.
DOORS OPEN at 7.30 pm
If you wish to attend the meeting either in person or remotely via YouTube, please confirm your preference by email to email@example.com or by post to the Trust Office, no later than 5pm on Friday 24 September.
Members are warmly invited to join the Trust Council members and staff from 7.30pm for refreshments and conversation before business commences at 8pm.
