Hello Badgers Mount resident (or someone who has fallen across this page whilst looking for something else!) I am Zena Belton, resident of Badgers Mount for about 25 years and somehow now the Chair person of the Badgers Mount Residence association - a group I have been part of for quite a number of years and something I am quite passionate about.
At the AGM I shared the highlights because yes there were highlights from the past 2 years...
We had papers delivered, prescriptions collected, we clapped, cheered and banged saucepans on Thursdays , we had little litter pickers with certificates , launched a WhatsApp group in case of emergencies and social WhatsApp group to look for lost tortoises and check when is bin day!, we had people follow us on Facebook, we celebrated VE day with distant street parties, we had Beer deliveries, ice cream van round, footpath tidy, we collected fish and chips, enjoyed zoom calls, we made phone calls to check in, we even had an isolating mouse, we listened to other people’s outdoor parties with some fantastic jazz in an afternoon, we planted sunflowers and I am sure much more.
We didn’t do anything special we didn’t make a fuss we just pulled together and we looked out for each other.
We became a tight little community, and I don’t want to lose that, if there has to be any legacy, any positive any advances from the last 2 years please can we keep all the good that came from some rather tough times. Now that we can stop being socially distant, now that we can meet up let’s not forget what we can do.
The Badgers Mount Residents association are a group of people who care about Badgers Mount, who invest some of their time to support the community we live in.
What do we do? We facilitate the activities that the people of Badgers mount would like to do, we create opportunities for Neighbours to come together, we welcome new people into the village*. We protect what we cherish about our village*, we keep our residents safe, we check that everyone is represented when change is planned this may be a change in a bus route, campaigning to re instate a bus route or a regular train service, we bring a people together to share concerns and become a stronger voice for example large building projects, or road ways, effecting our environment.
So please do join the whatsapp group, do look out for notices about events we are running and do get in touch with ideas of anything you would like to see happen in your community.
*Note I may have taken liberties in calling Badgers Mount a village – so please forgive me!
