For years, the Spurs drummer created a fantastic atmosphere at White Hart Lane that inspired the fans and players alike.
But red tape and bureaucracy meant the shelf-side drummer fell silent, and now we are campaigning for his return.
Because we don't want the Lane to turn into a library!
If 50,000 Spurs fans join this petition, Tottenham Hotspur can't say no.
The Wards Corner Community Coalition have been working to halt the proposed demolition of Wards Corner since 2007. Developer Grainger want to replace the Latin American & African indoor market and the 3 surrounding streets of independent businesses and affordable homes with a soulless block of private rented flats and space for national retail.
On 25th June 2012 Haringey's Planning Committee granted permission to Grainger's plan in-spite of huge opposition from local people including over 400 objections from both the local community and national organisations. This is in addition to the 1, 800 objections to Grainger’s previous application.
Grainger's proposal is a step backwards for Tottenham and would see the loss of many independent local businesses and valued heritage assets. The demolition of Wards Corner would change for the worse the cultural diversity and character of Tottenham and would irrevocably damage the resiliant and growing local economy that has been developed by local traders over many years.
Although Haringey passed the plan the fight is not over yet.
We are petitioning Boris Johnson Mayor of London to call-in the application and determine it for himself. This is the last chance we have of getting this disastrous plan refused as it should have been by Haringey.
The Wards Corner Community Coalition want to see change at Wards Corner and propose a community-led, historically sensitive regeneration of the site, providing new space for local businesses and much needed community facilities.

Regarding an application for a Bookmakers in Tottenham. The said address: 261a High Road Tottenham - Everybody's Music. This music shop has been in existence for more than 30 years. Naturally we, the Tottenham community will be sad to see the shop close. Even more sad to see Paddy Power in its place!The area already is a deprived area and has at least 37 Bookmakers in the vicinity. (Tottenham and Haringey Green Lanes.
Such establishments causes not only crime and disorder but are a public nuisance and clearly encourage anti-social behaviour.
Please support me in this petition, particularly if you reside or work in the N15 area. We have until 17 June 2010 to present this info to Haringey Council.
David Lammy, MP puts this message across on his website.
With a new stadium being planned to be built for Tottenham Hotspur, I think we should keep the fans pitch side.
The current stadium has a fantastic atmosphere and lets the fans be more involved with the game, compared to stadiums with no pitch side fans.
If we don't allow fans pitch side, I think we would lose out atmosphere.

9 years waiting for a trophy and thousands of fans unable to obtain tickets for the cup final surely we deserve a celebration?
The former Wards Department Store building on the corner of Seven Sisters Road and the High Road, in the London Borough of Haringey, has stood empty since the 1970s but retains many interesting features and from visual inspection still appears structurally sound.
It is an early twentieth century example of a steel-framed three-storey structure with large internal spaces -- the only example of such a building in Tottenham and thus a significant part of Tottenham's architectural heritage.
It could easily be brought back into public use -- for example, as a restaurant or an exhibition space, and to provide a new location for the Colombian market which currently occupies part of the site. However, the building is now threatened with demolition as part of a plan for the general redevelopment of the "Wards Corner" site above Seven Sisters underground station.
This redevelopment would replace the existing mix of Edwardian-era buildings and the local businesses occupying them with two eight-storey apartment blocks which would be out of scale with other buildings in the area, a "leisure opportunity" of an undefined character, a roof garden which could not be overseen from the High Road (and thus likely to become a hotspot for anti-social behaviour), and a set of retail units the rents for which would be unaffordable by local businesses.
The Tottenham Civic Society has therefore set up this e-petition to collect the signatures of those who consider that the Wards Department Store building should be preserved, restored and brought back into use as part of the redevelopment, in order to ensure that the site's history and character is not lost.
There has recently been talk that Tottenham Hotspur manager, Martin Jol, may be sacked in the near future due to the team's poor performance in the first 2 games of this premiership season.
Despite the fact that he has gotten the team into the top 5, and into Europe, for 2 years running.
I feel that I have to contact you all regarding the deplorable scenes that I witnessed at White Hart Lane on Monday 19th March 2007. Firstly, I am a Spurs fan, and will freely admit that we were outplayed and out passed in the game last night, and Chelsea deserved the victory.
I thought that they took both their goals very well, and we did not seem to be at the races for long periods of the game. I haven't got a clue why, probably it is as simple that Chelsea are a better team than us.
But I feel that I have to speak out at what I saw after the game. I sat in block 33, row 26, and it is the same block that the fan came running out of and approached Frank Lampard. I am NOT condoning what he has done, and hopefully get what he deserves, a life time ban from the Lane, and a prison sentence. I have to tell you from what I saw, he was only reacting to what Frank, Ashley Cole, and John Terry did. It comes down to responsibility from them.
I do not know if you know White Hart Lane very well, but the away fans are positioned next to the Park Lane faithful, the 'diehards' if you want to call them. So, I can understand that the Chelsea team would want to go over there and celebrate. But, and it is a big but, while they are running towards there fans, there was no need for them to gesture to us fans in the Park Lane. I saw John Terry, Frank Lampard, and especially Ashley Cole, gesturing to us fans in a provocative way i.e. 'come and get us if you think you are hard enough' way, so that we reacted to it, and the more we reacted to it, the more that they did it. I can understand that they were just reacting to the amount of abuse and stick they were getting through out the game, but don't they have a duty of care not to react to these type of things? Frank came over to our side when he took and a corner, and got one hell of a barrage of abuse. He just smiled and got on with it, now that was the professional way to handle it. So why, at the end of the game, do a stupid thing like that and provoke the response that they got? I have no idea.....
To make matters worse, and I am sure that the TV pictures will back me up on this and there has been pictures printed in the national press, Didier Drogba should be done for assault on the fan. I blatantly saw him STAMPING on the fan when he was being held on the floor by the stewards! What the hell was that all about? You do that on the street, you go to prison, end of story! Why should it be different with him. Ashley Cole was seen kicking him, again in my book, that is a criminal offence. The second fan that came onto the pitch came from the Chelsea section, god only knows what he was doing.....
And now I have just found out that there will no action taken against any of the Chelsea players that were involved in the incident. I am asking each and every supporter of a football club to sign this petition and stop this thugish behaviour that happens on a football pitch. Something was done when Ben Thatcher elbowed Pedro Mendes, so why is it different for when a Chelsea player stamps on a supporter I ask you? We need to something about it, please sign this petition, and make sure that something is done!
"When a Stoke fan attacked QPR goalkeeper Simon Royce last season and landed a few blows before the Rangers squad fell on him, QPR got a fine for failing to keep control of their players and reserve goalkeeper Jake Cole picked up a ban for administering a good shoeing while the bloke was on the floor. Step forward a year and a Spurs fan, clearly so drunk that even fat Frank could evade him, finds himself buried under a heap of Chelsea players. Of these, Ashley Cole and Didier Drogba, amongst others, are performing a strange dance not unrelated to the Hokey Cokey. We can only hope the unfortunate fan wasn't in their way. And is the FA feeling the collars of those Chelsea players? Or the management team that failed to control them? Apparently not. Double standards, anyone?"
