Woodstock Road is to the west of Finsbury Park, the other side of the railway line, to the south.

We can find references to the Association in 2005 and 2011, but nothing more recent. However we might have uncovered what Fedorowicz was fighting for on behalf of the Association. A rather pleasantly nerdy thread on Haringey Online contains this 2017 post from Madeline:

"Woodstock Rd was declassified as a B road some (20+?) years ago when The Woodstock Rd Association was quite active. We were worried about the high volume of traffic using this road which is basically a side road off Stroud Green Rd, A1201, but being marked as a B road was well used especially in the evenings when children would be out and about playing. At that time there was no right turn heading north from SGR into Upper Tollington Park and you can't enter the road from UPT to head south. As such we would get a lot of lorries and arctics attempting to use the road which is quite unsuitable for large vehicles with it's corners and narrowness. There was no CPZ then either and the road could become quite horrendous at times. There is a weight limit but that would often be missed and large vehicles would become stuck on the corners and bends and require some sort of assistance to help them get out of the situation . The proximity of Stroud Green school on the road also posed a problem and it was agreed that for health and safety reasons the road should become a normal residential street and, believe it or not, is a lot quieter now than it was then."

We wonder what Woodstock Road is like now that Waze, etc. are directing drivers along residential streets, treating them as if they are just as appropriate for through traffic as the main roads. Note, 2020, Open Street Map shows Woodstock Road as the B150, but Google Map does not.
