Congratulations and thanks to retiring Chair Pat Thomas who has served as an officer for the residents association for many years.
Pat in turn thanked Lilian Greenwood MP for her work.

Local Police announced crime is up locally, then that a merger between Police and the Fire Brigade would allow local Police to run a contact point from the London Road Fire Station; oh and then that a new Bridewell will be built somewhere in Radford.  Perhaps better to wait for official confirmation, or otherwise,  of these points.

21 residents attended.  Bel Edis is the new Chair.

Lilian covered –
celebrating votes for women; impact of women MPs; being chair of the Transport Select cttee.; preparing to clean air; the failure of Carillion and noting that the
NHS in Nottingham sacked them; the need fo more council housing; campaigning on gov’t proposals on supported housing (e.g. Carroll Gardens) – gov’t backtracked; new legislation for homes fit for human habitation; wanting more new council homes in The Meadows; that the government could do more; NHS – massive winter pressures; the waits for A&E ambulances: 300 more (check) operations cancelled.  Adult social care needs more support. Instead, the burden on council tax.  Pleased to see money secured for improvements to the Meadows Health Centre.  The new spaces available in local primary schools.
We need more police officers.

Community involvement counts. Casework is key to what she does and the feedback informs.  Meadows Advice Group is invaluable.


Councillor Toby Neal spoke on the cuts to the council’s budget being made by the national government.
