A READER WRITES ABOUT COMBINING TO CAMPAIGN.....
I was interested in your 'afterthought' in a recent blog.
In the Royal Borough we have a number of powerful resident associations.
They have a keen, well informed and dedicated membership ready to fight on behalf of the residents they represent.
Thinking of some of those RA's certain names come to mind....
Michael Bach, Caryl Harris, Amanda Frame, Richard Grantley, The Thompsons, Terence Bendixon, Anthony Walker....
I could go on, but, for the sake of brevity leave you with just those few.
But there are many more talented and capable members of other associations.
Three concerns dominate the lives of residents:
* POTENTIAL PROPERTY TAX
So why don't the Borough's Resident and Tenant Associations form an umbrella group able to orchestrate our concerns, with a powerful and coherent voice, to the Council and Central Government?
It need not over formalised or over- structured: merely a loose association with common campaigning objectives.
Maybe some of your more creative readers could think of an acronym based name....
