5 Annual General Meeting: Further discussion took place concerning the AGM which is confirmed to take place on Wednesday 14th November starting at 7:00 pm in the Brentford Dock Residents’ Club Room. Speakers confirmed: Virginia Fassnidge, Paul Richens and Bruce Smith, Recycling Team at LBH.  Councillors were invited but have a Council meeting that evening so will not be represented. We also hope that other members of Hounslow’s recycling team will be able to attend. ALL
6 Street Care Team, Litter bins: the emptying of these and the problems regarding recyclable items were discussed again. It is of great concern, both to the environment and the fund-raising possibilities for local authorities, that there are no facilities locally to collect the valuable aluminium cans. It may be a valuable exercise to invite someone from Hounslow Highways to come to a future meeting to discuss this. Patti to ask Guy Lambert if he can arrange or advise who to invite. PH
7 Marie Curie Coffee Mornings: These continue to be held every month in the Brentford Dock club room to raise funds for Marie Curie. The next one will be on Monday 19th November from 10:30 to 12:30.   The Brentford Dock Residents Association have also started producing brunches on the first Wednesday in the month from 11:00 am.
