AN OPEN LETTER – to everyone who lives in the Gardens Streets
I am writing to invite you to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Gardens Residents Association. This meeting will take place on Monday 9 May from 7.30 – 9.30pm, at the Kurdish Community Centre, Portland Gardens N4 IHU (off Stanhope Gardens).
The Gardens Residents Association (GRA) exists to represent the views of all the residents in the Gardens roads (Warwick, Stanhope, Rutland, Roseberry, Chesterfield, Kimberley, Cleveland, Doncaster and Portland Gardens) whether you are tenants or owner-occupiers, whether you live in a house or a block of flats, whether you have just moved in or have lived here for many years. We work closely with our local councillors, council officers, community safety team (police) and other local organisations and community groups to improve the environment for local residents. The GRA created and maintains the award-winning Community Garden in Doncaster Gardens (off Stanhope Gardens), where we hold a number of community events throughout the year.
The theme of this year’s meeting is: Let’s get involved!
The Gardens Residents Association is a busy, thriving organisation and the more people who get involved, the more we can do. We will spend some time at this meeting discussing the best ways to encourage more people to play an active role. We have also invited our 3 councillors to come along and address the meeting and take questions from the floor.
We will also be electing our officers for the coming year. This year two positions have become vacant as both the Chair and the Secretary, who have each served for two years, are stepping down due to other commitments. So we are looking for some new volunteers to take on these roles. The Vice Chair is happy to stay on and other members of the committee will give lots of support to the new officers. Several people have expressed an interest so far, but nothing is decided as yet, so do get in touch before the meeting if you are interested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 020 8374 7721.
There are also many other voluntary roles, including looking after: Membership, Newsletter, Planning Issues, Community Garden, Trees, Children’s Activities, etc. This is your chance to do your bit to help improve the local neighbourhood, so do let us know if you are interested in taking on one of these roles.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
Chair, Gardens Residents Association
