Hello and hope you all had a good festive period despite the cold.

We have scheduled the next South London Compass meeting for:

Tuesday 16th February 2010 7.30 p.m. at the same venue the DOG STAR pub on COLDHARBOUR LANE, BRIXTON. The meeting will be on the top floor – please go inside the pub and then take the stairs to the left just after the bar.

Obviously the hope is that as many people as possible can make this date. Of course if a large number can’t then we can rearrange although we would like to avoid this if at all possible. Therefore I would be really grateful if you could reply to this email with an indication as to whether or not you are able to come.

Looking forward to seeing you all again – I will send an agenda around nearer the time. In the meantime I have included the email which followed the last meeting below.

Warm regards


Next steps for the group - before the next meeting we agreed to research issues identified and present an analysis of the electoral situation. In particular we were going to investigate housing and in particular the question of empty properties in the local borough and whether or not freedom of information requests should be made and if so to which boroughs likewise with council procurement and possible small scale environmental campaigns like plastic bags etc that we could use to attract interest to the group and establish green credentials, something that was important to all member of the group.”
