For some years the St John’s Resident’s Association has been trying to place a notice board on Alma Road, through the sterling efforts of committee members and the beat police officer a site has been identified on Alma Road. Marcus Bruton has managed, through the Neighbourhood Partnership Scheme, to secure about £500 in funds and having investigated the proposed site has concluded that it should be sited near the telephone box on Alma Road by the cycle rack.
Marcus says, "This is public land so I have applied to the council to find out what permissions are needed to site a notice board here. The advantage of siting the notice board here is that both sides can be used, one side for St John’s Residents Association and the other for the Oakfield Road Residents Association."
With a bit of luck the notice board will be up and running in the Autumn.
