Talk on Victoria Embankment

WP_20180717_19_40_18_Pro (2) ML Eddie Curry pres on VEmb
Eddie Curry, Parks Manager, gave presentations on investments in Victoria Embankment, tackling current issues regarding use and abuse of the parks and plans to put a memorial to matk the centenary of the end of the first world war.
Opponents of the new memorial argue for the integrity of the 1927 design of the gardens, yet then call for the erection of a former one-sided door frame in the gardens, whilst saying the listing of names of the fallen from 100 years ago can be served by the installation of QR code plates on public benches.  Not good enough.

NeMTRA AGM 2018

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.
