Last night I went along to the SE5Forum Meeting at Cambridge House. Most of the business was the election of the committee and confirmation of the constitution (hopefully a copy will be online soon), so discussion was thin on the ground. I’m sure that future meetings will have scope for extra participation.
It was actually quite wonderful to see so many different people from all ages and backgrounds coming together because they want to have some input into their living environment; it made me feel a flutter in my cynical black heart.
I’m not sure if any of my regular readers were there, as we were using real names instead of nome-de-webs. I did meet someone (sorry, I forgot your name) who thanked me for the site, which briefly made me feel like a mover and shaker. If you were there and want to place me, I was in a black t‑shirt and brown shorts, and sweating profusely as I’d just scarfed down my dinner and rushed over on the bicycle.
