23 members of the Keose Glebe Community met in Balallan hall on Saturday 1st April.
They were there to review the estate’s progress made in the first year of Community Ownership; to again discuss the strategic plan and direction of the estate; and to suggest projects or issues to be tackled or prioritised in year two.
Both the Estate Management Team, and the wider community were praised and thanked for their hard work and the volunteer hours put in.
The meeting noted that around 1700 hours of community effort had been invested thus far, and that a large number of projects and initiatives had been got underway.
The fact that the estate was now generating income, and enough income to meet its expenses was welcomed, and it was expected that further income would begin to drive additional development of the estate.
Suggestions and comments made have been noted and will be developed further.
A report of all the achievements by the Estate in Year 1 was circulated at the meeting, and should be circulated to all households and members unable to attend, shortly.
Tea and delicious refreshments were served, and the meeting was then treated to a presentation of old photographs of Keose Glebe, and some of its former (and current) residents.
Much amusement and reminiscing was had in guessing who was who, who was where, what were they doing, and what were they thinking??
It was also poignant to be reminded of and to think about those who are no longer with us.
All in all, it was a productive and enjoyable evening (and there were even ‘doggy bags’ of cakes and baking for people to take home with them!).
Thank you to Donna and Alister for their hard work in preparing and setting up the hall, and to all the people who contributed so generously to the catering.
