Attend public meeting plea
October 08, 2008
The Twyford community is being asked to come together for a meeting about the town’s future.
Twyford Village Partnership is calling on as many people as possible to attend the public meeting next month where a brainstorming session will address the issues facing Twyford.
Members of the partnership have produced five questions they would like to be discussed at the meeting.
These will look at topics including the environment issues facing Twyford, such as air and noise pollution, whether street signs and advertising are over-cluttering the village, what the favourite views from Twyford are and whether there are any run-down or derelict buildings which need repairing.
The meeting will also discuss what opportunities there are for people to understand and become active in reducing or managing waste.
The partnership wants to be as thorough as possible, and says it needs to get as many people as possible so a full range of views are looked at.
People who attend the meeting will be asked to fill in a worksheet, which covers these topics and aims to gauge their opinion on the state of the village and what work needs doing.
Partnership member Kathy Peck said: “A lot of these questions are asking people’s opinions so we need to get as broad a cross-section of thoughts from as many different people as possible.”
The meeting will launch the built and natural environment working group, which will form part of the parish plan project.
Twyford Village Partnership wants as many people to fill in the worksheets before the meeting as possible.
The worksheet can be downloaded from the partnership’s website at www.twyfordvillage.com.
Mrs Peck said: “If you are a member of a larger group or organisation, please circulate the document to your members so that we can gather a wide spread of views and opinions from as many people as possible.
“If you are unable to attend the meeting then please e-mail your responses for us to include in our discussions.”
The meeting will take place on Monday, October 20, at 8pm at the Twyford Room at the Loddon Hall in Loddon Hall Road, Twyford.
