Friends of Chiswick Common Get Together
New Community Group hold their inaugural meeting
A new group which aims to look after the interest of Chiswick Common has held its first meeting. The event took place on Thursday 29th March at the Town Hall.
The meeting was chaired (on an interim basis) by Doug Napier of CIP, and 14 people from the area around Chiswick Common attended, with 8 apologies for absence received.
The purpose of the meeting was to consider the formation of Friends of Chiswick Common . This association will act as a channel of communication and liaison between CIP and Hounslow in order to protect and improve the Common and monitor and report on its condition.
Doug Napier explained that the Common is one of 15 key parks in the Borough which, together, attract around 50% of the total resources available for maintenance.
Issues raised at the meeting included:
Catherine Meisels was nominated as Chairman of Friends of Chiswick Common and it was agreed that another meeting should be held ( date and venue to be advised) to agree a Constitution, elect a Secretary and a Treasurer and formalise the Friends of Chiswick Common.
