This year’s newsletter arriving at your door
Members of our committee will be calling over the next week or so to give you this year’s Newsletter and hear of your hopes and concerns for Camden. The main news items are:
- Why we’ve chosen cherries and snakes and ladders to depict our activities this year and next
- Our disappointment at not being chosen the in the first wave of the Council’s £2.25 million scheme to create ‘liveable neighbourhoods’ despite a really strong bid from us and our councillors to alleviate the enduring problem of traffic and safety for the last 20 years at least – we’re not giving up though!
- The astonishing success of one of our committee members in getting some real progress made on taming the unkempt wilderness below Camden Crescent
- The prospect of a street party next year, as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, probably on Sunday June 5th. We’ve already kicked off the process to close the road for the day and have researched the street party’s history and essence. So, if there are any budding event-organisers and helpers we’ll be pleased to share our ideas and early plans.
- The AGM is on Friday 12th November at 7pm – it will be physical and virtual for those unable to visit the Museum of Bath at Work on Julian Road. We will be serving drinks and mince pies and making as social occasion as covid precautions allow it to be.
We will be gently asking for a contribution towards running the Association which costs us several hundred pounds each year to host our web-site on green electricity, and post articles most weeks, support the Friends of Hedgemead Park and Camden Meadow as well as the Federation of Bath Residents Associations. All other efforts are voluntary including the printing 500 copies of this newsletter by Andrews Property Group.
We really look forward to meeting you at your door, as well as at the AGM if you can make it.
