It seems your ‘public’ meeting doesn’t include residents of Cherry Hinton since there’s no advertising in this area at all, apart from a short-lived poster on the Snakey Path which appeared yesterday, less than 48 hours before the meeting and was gone by this morning. Given that Cherry Hinton residents are the ones that currently have to deal with the irresponsible parking, littering, anti-social behaviour, trespass and noise that arises from the current use of the ‘lakes’ you could at least have the decency to take this into consideration. I think the majority of Cherry Hinton residents would support the notion of opening up the lakes, but they’re not going to do so while their concerns are repeatedly ignored, which is what your organisation continues to do.
Hi Colin, we have advertised as far and wide as possible for 2 people with 50 signs. We’ve emailed over 300 people, including all the local groups with any potential interest in the Lakes. We’ve also tweeted and put the invite on Facebook. Unfortunately, the Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall AGM is also meeting tonight, which we regret and we have agreed to check in next time we have a meeting. We are in good contact with the Cherry Hinton Residents Association and have given presentations to them twice in the last few months. So don’t worry–Cherry Hinton is not being ignored!
We have met several times with the Cherry Hinton residents group and more people from this ward have been at the City Council meetings than any other. We are a small team but we’ve managed to do a lot of outreach and will continue to do so.
