Welcome to our Autumn Newsletter. We hope that you all had an enjoyable summer.
Your road representative will shortly be calling to collect your annual
subscription to the Association for the year ending March 2007. Collections for
the last year were rather late due to the weather so we are aiming to collect
before the onset of winter. Subscriptions remain at £1 per person, with a
maximum payable of £2 per household.
Unfortunately, Paul Smith will be moving soon, meaning that we will then again
have no resident from Badgers Rise, Old London Road or Crest Close on the
committee, and that there will be two vacancies. There were no volunteers to be
co-opted onto the Committee following our last Newsletter, but as we are not yet
half way through our year there is still plenty of time if you would like to
join us. Please contact Gordon or Tracey on the contact details given below!
We hope all those who attended the Summer Garden Party had an enjoyable time
despite the changeable weather. A huge THANK YOU to Mary Bliss for opening her
interesting garden for all to explore, and also to those who donated cakes etc.
and assisted throughout the afternoon.
The special coffee morning held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support raised £160!
Again, thanks to all who donated items for sale and those who gave so generously
to this worthy cause. If you attended the coffee morning for the first time, or
only come occasionally, why not come regularly on Thursdays between 10.30 and
12.00. Remember also that the mobile library visits on alternate Thursdays.

The planning applications for Badgers Oak and Cherry Trees have both been

other substantial redevelopment applications recently.
