Alice Park Friends Group
June 14, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Clarity is emerging about how Alice Park will be run under a new structure. It is not an arrangement designed to please everybody. There is much public feeling about Alice Park by users and nearby residents, as we saw at the lively June 8th public meeting. So in order to involve people who care about the Park, a public meeting to form a grass-roots Friends of Alice Park group is being held in New Oriel Hall on Wednesday 13th July at 7:30pm. Don’t worry if you can’t make it on that night because there are sure to be follow-up meetings when anyone with an interest is welcome.
Since the Council remains the ultimate Trustee of the Park, they set up a Trust Board to have overall responsibility for decisions. The Board then appoints three of their number onto a specific Alice Park Committee. Only these three have with voting rights, including Rob Appleyard, the other councillor for Lambridge ward. I will be on the committee, but in a non-voting capacity, and there will be two independent people deemed as bringing necessary skills to the committee, also non-voting. Other members may be asked to join, although they too will not have voting rights. The skateboard facility will undergo another public consultation. For this to work, we need a Friends group.
