Tonight saw the inaugural meeting of a residents association based on the Buckingham Street area. The meeting was very well attended with over 40 people packed into a small meeting room at the Cornmill Hotel. It was really pleasing to see so many residents from the local area. I was asked to chair the meeting which is always great fun especially when there is a high level of debate and contribution. As usual very little contribution or help from my ward colleagues.
The outcome of the meeting was very positive with general agreement to set up a residents group with a local committee and members.
