On 9th July 2014 forty interested people met at the Acorn Centre at the Primary for the first Eldene Community Meeting. These included some volunteers from the Horizon group, Councillors Derique Montaut and Neil Heavens, and Chris Smith from the Council’s Communities team, with the rest being Eldene residents.
Morrison’s, Eldene Community Centre and the Crumpled Horn were all invited but did not attend.
After a brief introduction, including a recap from the Eldene Centre update meeting, we split into 4 groups to discuss 4 different topics, spending 15 minutes on each one before moving on. An organiser took minutes of each discussion, and you can see these by clicking on the links below (that appear in red). There was a certain amount of overlap, but the focus was slightly different in each one.
At the end of the meeting attendees filled in a contact and details form, including email addresses. If you would like your email address added to this list to get future details, simply post below, and maybe say how you would like to be involved. The next stage may be to set up a Residents Association, but we’ll wait for all the minutes to appear and then see the main themes that emerge.
