Residents' Champion Featured In Hammersmith Gazette

It was interesting to read this piece in the Gazette (click on the photo to enlarge). There are many active residents groups around the borough. It is often a thankless task and it is my experience that they play a vital role; adding to the sense of local community and by campaigning to improve their neighbourhoods.

However, Shirley Cupit and her neighbours have recently set their residents' group up with a different remit. Hands Off Our Queen Caroline Homes has been formed to literally save their homes and their community after it emerged that H&F's Conservative run Council has been in secret talks with property speculators to demolish their homes.

I will report more on this very soon but, for now, please feel free to read this article here for background info.
