A great turnout tonight at the Council’s local area committee where we asked them to

1. Support our call for the repair and reopening of the Rose Garden Cafe

2. Allocate an indicative amount of £10,000 from the CIL allocation towards the repair costs when known and

3. To support our call for local councillors and local people to sit as trustees of Graves Park to ensure local accountability and shared decision making

I’m pleased to say that all of these were agreed in principle (although they cannot decide on the funds until further approvals and discussions are undertaken)

Well done to all and thank you to everyone for your amazing support !

Tomorrow we meet again to discuss next steps to the propping up operation on Oct 24th
