Kids and mums and dads got crafty down in the Old Workshop in Half Term. They worked with artist Michelle to create amazing prints and masks and creatures made of clay. The two days of activities were funded through Clarion’s Interact project, brought to you by the Tenants and Residents Association.
Our AGM on Saturday 14th July was a great success! Not only did we get the official business done by electing our Committee, and agreeing to update our constitution so that we are ‘recognised’ as a Tenants and Residents Association by Clarion Housing, we also had great fun with our first Bethnal Green Bake-Off. There were four amazing creations in the running for the first prize of £25 and the judges had a really hard time deciding on a winner, but in the end it was the Raspberry Cream creation made by Laila and Laura that tickled the judge’s tastebuds and won first prize. Thanks to everyone who baked and cooked for the event and thanks to the judges for being so good!
Our Committee members were elected by the meeting on the day and are:
Jane O’Sullivan – Chairperson
Husna Khanom and Leanne Wilson – joint Vice Chair
Michael Jones – Secretary
Carol Stuart-Evans Treasurer
Check out the calendar here and notices around the estate for the dates of the monthly meetings where you can get involved and have your say.
We have called a meeting with the Safer Neighbour Team police and Clarion Housing to discuss the high levels of Anti Social Behaviour happening on the Estate. We want them to work with us to help make the estate safer and a more pleasant place to live.
Come and have your say and ask questions on Thursday 5th July at 6pm in the Old Workshop
We had to postpone our AGM in June. Every year we have an Annual General Meeting where we report on what we have achieved over the year, give a financial report and elect a new committee made up of tenants and residents. This year it’s going to be on Saturday 14th July at 2.30pm in the Old Workshop.
We will have food and fun after the AGM. We are having a Bake-Off too so if you bring a cake or cakes you can enter our Bake Off competition and maybe win £25. We are also having a prize draw for everyone who attends, come down and get lucky! It should be fun
Any tenant or resident is eligible to stand as a committee member. If you would like to be a committee member, get in touch or come to a meeting to find out what is involved. It can be fun and very rewarding!
If you would like to stand as Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary or Treasurer please contact us with your details and the details of someone who is also a tenant or resident, who will nominate you at the AGM.
We look forward to seeing you there!
