On the 23rd March 2018 I had my first meeting with our Westminster MP Kwasi Kwertang
The meeting went very well. He is very supportive and he is 100% behind us. He feels that:
“…We ‘he was including himself when he said this’ are in a very good place with this, to get the result we need from Heathrow…”
He believes the STH campaign has really ignited things, that everything is going well and looking very positive. He also congratulated me on our residents association appointments. We discussed most of the blight issues we suffer on the village and for any I didn’t, I left a long letter explaining all the issues for him to examine and come back as soon as possible.
He was very surprised with everything that has been done already and he wants to arrange more meetings. He also wants (Westminster duties allowing) to come to one of our meetings. The first one to be held early July 2018.
Something that did surprise me though was. – He knew nothing about Morris/Oakleaf??
He wants to know who is the company behind it, who owns the land, what plans are being applied for etc. – So time for some more investigative work there.
All-in-all, we’re in a very good place. Those with a stake in the game know we’re not going away and we’re actually getting stronger.
So and its onwards and upwards…
