Chatting over tea and biscuits

Lynn and I met with a group of residents drawn from Park Lane, Kingsway, Queensway, Princeway and Alvanley Terrace this morning at the Community Church.

First I have to say a couple of big thank yous.  First to Peter and Sarah - CWaC officers who gave up their Saturday morning to help with the meeting and to Tim Croal and his crew at the church for letting us meet there.

... and secondly to all the local residents who came to the meeting and joined in and to those who emailed Lynn or me with their thoughts.

We had lots of pens, papers, plans and blue tack and everyone was encouraged to have their say on a whole range of issues affecting either Frodsham generally or the area around the Leisure and Medical Centre in particular.  We decorated the walls with ideas on many things ranging from where the double yellow lines should go through to how the vacant land around the medical centre could be used.  I really loved the radical suggestion that we could have a 'duck pond' there!

Thanks also to everyone who volunteered for defibrillator training - we'll get that organised!

We're about to run a Frodsham wide consultation so everyone will get their chance to give us their thoughts in  a few weeks time.

Several people came up to Lynn and me at the end of the meeting thanking us for the meeting and for running it in a way that everyone could have their say.

We'll be publishing the results of the conversations once we've collated the results.
