Empress Conservatives Meeting

3 October 2007

Last night Empress Conservatives had their regular (every 2 months or there abouts) meeting to discuss the ward and what the councillors are doing and need to do. We met for just an hour and a half 8pm to 9.30pm. Our next meeting is 27th November. The agenda was as follows:

1. Welcome (especially the new faces)

2. Update from last meeting.

3. Report of our successful Garden Party held last month.

4. Finance and membership update.

5. Key issues/events in Farnborough including a review of plans of developments taking place in the Town.

6. Feedback on how we are doing locally and nationally as a party.

7. Appointment of a sub group to select our Councillor candidate for 2008 (5 places)

8. Any other matter you want to raise.

Topics that came up included unhappiness with parking charges in a town centre that needed help not more charges. The good work and progress that has been made with the police - which is down to the good local beat officers we have (Lee and Bev). And a lively discussion on getting the balance right with green issues and other political priorities. The councillors reported on what they were doing, and were given some assignments by the committee to take up with the Council.

We had 7 residents in attendance plus councillors.

If you would like to join the party and join our committee please let me know.
