As we approach the end of the Arts Festival, and I begin to settle into my new role as chairman of The Southfields Grid Residents association, that is a very lively question. A couple of our events were well attended, but on most occasions attendence was very low, and that is despite the eminence and talent of those who had given their time so generously!
As for the SGRA, although it has some younger members, those who are actually active are mainly retired and are a tiny percentage of the grid population. There is a new web-site for the organisation. www.southfieldsgrid.org.uk, which we are hoping will provide a local forum for gathering ideas and views, and certainly for providing information about local events and services, so please take a look, sign up, and join in. If we could carry forward the spirit of the street parties that would be worthwhile!
