And tell Sylvia Long (or Slyvia, according to the Citizen?) that local police are 'watchful'. Different 'interests' take priority in Tredworth, evidently...

The people to speak to about organising the event would be reached by karenmarypage@live.co.uk and tim@treesassociates.com. I emailed Karen Page on May 29th about an email I didn't get a reply to months previously. On May 31st, at 13.22pm, I happened to pass her on High Street, by the Vic, and she said she'd reply to my email after she 'got the boys settled'. Nothing since.

As I said, Karen Page seemed like a decent person, the sort that could get poached by one of the political parties as councillor material, but she was a let down in the end. At the beginning of this month, after getting the local post office to confirm that the TETRA meeting was taking place (despite a complete absence of advertising on the notice board I pushed the authorities to set up), I turned up at the Vic and was made to feel very unwelcome, of course, by Tony Ward, who turned up more than twenty minutes late himself. Karen Page was nowhere to seen, the whole time.

Put an event on people's doorsteps, and of course some people will come out to it, particularly for free food. Sad that it couldn't have been organised for the traditional location of Barton Street, since Sunday was picked this time, but from the moment Tony Ward was handed control of the neighbourhood partnership (now defunct), and now TETRA (soon to follow?), common sense went out the window.

Thank you for taking an interest. It would not be in anyone's interest for illegal activity to take place, I am sure that the local constabulary will be keeping a watchful eye on events. Let's hope that this community event organised by local residents runs smoothly. If you want to speak with one of the residents organising the party I could let them know?

If watching people drinking heavily sat on kerbs is your thing then help yoursrlf but as a resident its the one day of the year i hate most. Mark my words if i will be notifying the police at the first sign of illegal activity
