It's hard to believe that it's been twelve months since the last Christmas message that we posted on this blog. As another Christmas comes around, we reflect on the past year.
Not only were we re-elected in the May local elections, we also successfully campaigned for the reopening of Murray Grove Post Office.
Councillor Phil Glanville became the chair of the Living in Hackney Scrutiny Commission. Councillor Carole Williams became the chair of the Community Safety and Social Inclusion Panel. We have attended estate committee meetings across the ward, the community action panel and meetings to discuss the rebuilding of Thomas Fairchild school. We have lobbied for to extend the Decent Homes Programmes to even more blocks in Hoxton and have worked with police to address a number of community safety concerns.
In the past year we have found even more ways to keep in contact to inform you off all the work that we are doing on your behalf. Over the next year it will be even more important to keep you up to date with changing government policy and how these will affect you.
In light of those changes, we will continue to work hard for you in 2011.
Do let us have your thoughts and write to us about what Hoxton means to you. Also let us know the impact that government changes are having for you and your family and, in the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
