At a packed AGM, residents voted in favour of Alexandra Road formally joining the association (although the association has represented the road for more than 10 years). Two residents agreed to join the Committee as representatives of the road. The association will now be able to develop ideas on how to address residents concerns. Suggestions made at the AGM included: what can be done to reduce noise and anti-social behaviour coming down from the High Road, speeding traffic, the need for one way traffic along the full length of the road and how we might get more trees planted. We look forward to meeting more residents from Alexandra Road and taking these and any other ideas forward.

Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.

Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
