by Steve and Mary McInally – 70 Ethelburt Ave

We would like to thank everyone who braved the cold and joined in the carols in Ethelburt Avenue on 22nd December. There must have been around 50 people who came along and Ocean Brass were ever so good. A lovely festive evening was had by all and we will definitely do it again next year.

I’m sure residents wish to thank Steve & Mary – Ed.

A class room at St George’s School proved a more suitable size for our AGM on 24th November than rattling around in a hall that is too big for us. We were well looked after by Andy Leach, the school’s Site Manager. He and James Habberley, the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for school management would like to understand more fully the impact the school has on the local residents and how we can work together to look into any concerns.

It was a great disappointment when our after-AGM speaker forgot to come.

Kevin White, Historic Environment Group Leader emailed to say that the Council’s Graphics Department had produced the draft of the Appraisal and Management Plan for public consultation. The six week consultation period will be launched with a public meeting, probably in early March. When this has been arranged, we will deliver invitations around the Conservation Area. In the meantime, you can have a preview of the consultation draft by following the link at

The HCERA Committee has decided not to hold an Open Gardens Day this year and confirmed the practice of holding this event on alternate years. This provides you with a great opportunity to get your garden ready for next year.
