A new discussion group, the Hedge End Society, will soon hold its inaugural meeting. Anybody who lives in Hedge End is welcome to attend.
The idea is to provide an opportunity for Hedge End residents to debate local issues in a relaxed, unintimidating, non-political environment with the minimum of formalities.
A group of local residents recently suggested the idea to former Hedge End Town Councillor, Jenny Schwausch, who has taken the idea forward and arranged the inaugural meeting.
The Hedge End Society is intended to be new and different. It gives residents an opportunity to say what they think, without any of the pressures or procedural mechanisms that might prevent your point of view being heard in a Council meeting.
Whilst the Hedge End Society is intended to be non-political, i.e. free from campaigning and party-political point-scoring, local politicians are not excluded and are very welcome to attend. It is an opportunity to listen to local opinion and take ideas away…
Arrangements have been made for the inaugural meeting to be chaired by Chris Rowberry, the Vicar of St Johns Church in Hedge End.
That meeting will take place on Monday 14 Novemberat 7.30pm in the UNDERHILL CENTRE, ST JOHN’S CHURCH, ST JOHN’S ROAD, HEDGE END
