A quick update on today’s meetings – it’s been a long day.
This lunchtime Peter Worby and Paul Rumens accompanied me to the Stanmore HQ of KSIMC, our landlords. We had a very encouraging meeting which carried on over lunch.
We are due to meet again on 9 March at Ruislip to discuss various possibilities. Let’s hope this is the start of proper and frequent conversations leading to a long term agreement. I am encouraged by our discussions but I think we all know there is a long way to go.
This evening Peter and Leo this time came with me to Ruislip Manor Library to attend a meeting of the local residents association. Although we were expecting the worse, in terms of complaints about parking and noise we were to be surprised, as in general the residents were very complimentary about what we have achieved so far wished us every success in the future.
It is important we have a working relationship with the residents that we can develop in the future so that when we are in a position to invest in the site we do so with their support. Again this is an investment in a long term plan which I think is very important to our future.
A good day.
