Since Saturdays event we have had a few comments posted in reference to various articles on the blog. I thought it might be useful to collect them together on a single post for people to look at. If you would like to comment on any of the fantastic ideas just click on “leave a comment” at the bottom of the post.
Alice – The BBC picked up the story it seems. Now we just need to make some more noise and make sure Turnpike Lane residents see they have a voice and can be heard. Great work. (16/01/11)
Jim: Absolutely! Things are looking really good. Now, what about a name for the neighbourhood! Any thoughts? (18/01/11)
Julia: Well, if we were in New York we’d come up with something daft like TuLaWeG, but I’m not seriously suggesting that! (18/01/11)
Sara: I was very taken with the idea of a book swapping public bookcase and would strongly support having one close to turnpike lane bus station, with benches. Yes, I know alcoholics gather there. They will do anyway, but if there are books it is a civilising and educative influence. (18/01/11)
Sara: I have learned that green walls do need regular gardening, so it would need a team of people prepared to make a longish term commitment. I do think it would be great to get one on the electricity substation wall which has always been a complete eyesore. It would give such a boost to that scruffy old corner onto green lanes. Does any one else feel like getting involved in making/maintaining one? (18/01/11)
