MEMO, in conjunction with residents, Londonplay and other partners is organising a StreetParty for 2 June 2012 (see poster on the events page or your block’s notice board). We are all coming together in the spirit of the annual Big Lunch idea. We are looking for residents to participate in a cake backing competition. On Saturday, bring your best cake piece to the Party in St Oswulf Street and the best Millbank resident baker will receive a price and a certificate. The judgment will be taking place at 2pm.
Any questions? Just phone ore visit the MEMO office in Reynolds House Court Yard and they can guide you further.
Please remember also: St Oswulf Street and Erasmus Street is closed for traffic from 10am to 5pm that day.
MEMO has appointed Paul Allen as Estate Director, starting full-time on 8 June 2012. Paul has a wide-ranging background in Estate Management, TMO and community engagement, both as representative of tenant organisations and Councils. After strengthening our relationship with Westminster City Council and moving the organisation over the past 3 years towards sustainable financial funding, Paul’s appointment signals a hightened estate service and community support focus by MEMO. These is fully in line with core values of the TMO movement that had the Big Society idea at its heart long before it became a headline feature associated with the current Government. The MEMO board and residents are welcoming Paul and offer him, the whole MEMO staff team every support we can bring to the table to build a strong service profil for the benefit of tenants and leaseholders and explore future possibilities as per last AGM’s mandate, taking advantage of opportunities given to local communities by the localism bill and other changes in Government legislation and policies. People coming together, acting as a community to safegard what we already achieved and develop positive aspects of it further can only be a good thing, specifically during uncertain times.
