Tottenham Quakers

Forster Cottages now

In 1985 the property was improved with central heating, new bathrooms and separate bedrooms. Legal requirements made administration a more onerous task and in 1992 the property was handed over to the Family Welfare Association, after 132 years administration by Tottenham Monthly Meeting. The FWA still manage the property.

May Mortimer was the only Friend to reside in the cottages. She lived at No. 90 for many years until 1985, often making her visitors warmly welcome to friendly discussion in her parlour.
