Christine Clifford commented on Tim Godsmark's blog post Money for Repairs
"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19. A supportive councillor, Graeme Harrower, has written a…See More

Richard replied to Maria Elizabeth Prior's discussion Broken glass around pond.
"Hi Maria. It wasn't broken glass, it was ice that was on the pond. I think someone decided to clear some off the pond for the sake of the fish."

Broken glass around pond.

I was wondering if anyone knew why there was so much broken glass littered all over the pond area, in front of Bayer House, and by the Community Centre, and where it came from.  I could not believe how much was there.  Its been there since at least last Thursday, and is clearly hazardous.  The Estate Office have just left it there.  See More

We're still new to the estate, so welcome any guidance on how we can participate in residents' action to make things better.

One of the things we most admired about Golden Lane before moving here was the wonderful gardens that the residents had created in the common parts.  We'll do anything we can to support you in your battle to get to get the LFB report and your solicitor's letter acknowledged and the gardens reinstated..  Please let us know how we can help...

Hello- just found your comment from a year ago.  Temporarily off the estate but hoping to return by the end of 2016.

Thank you, Maria.

Hi Maria,  Sorry my message today was a bit late to make a proper arrangement.  Sue is about this afternoon, or if you'd like to get in touch with her to arrange a convenient time her number is 0780 325 9657.  Hope to see you on our next Sunday Social on 12 May from about 11 until 2pm.  Anna

At 13:11 on April 27, 2013, Anna Parkinson said…

Are you free at 2pm?  Sorry it's short notice, was trying to coordinate with Sue.  We could meet you at the allotments if you're free.  Thanks Anna

At 7:29 on April 26, 2013, Anna Parkinson said…

Hi Maria.  I will need to coordinate with Sue who is allocating the bags.  We have also introduced a membership subscription of £20 per year to cover new soil, equipment, insurance etc.  Are you free at all over the weekend? Maybe we could meet on the allotments and we can introduce you to your bag! Saturday would probably be better for me, but I'll check with Sue. Anna 

At 22:05 on April 25, 2013, Anna Parkinson said…

Maria

We now have a growing bag available on the allotments and wondered if you still wanted to take one?  Please could you get in touch with me or Sue Pearson via this website?  If we don't hear from you by Wednesday 8 May (our next meeting) we'll assume you are no longer interested.  Many thanks  Anna Parkinson
