Time on the Wyndham and Comber Estate, Freshers Fair and Hibs lose to Rangers

I spent a fair bit of time on the Wyndham and Comber Estate in the Ward this week. Starting with a Fun Day on Saturday to open the new Basketball court and to consult on the CGS Project to change the frontage of the Tenants Hall.
On the Monday I went on an early morning Estate Walkabout with Harriet on the Estate and afterwards met local residents to discuss their concerns locally and nationally!
Last night I attended the Wyndham and Comber T&RA AGM so they cant say that they only see me at election time!!!

This model of an Estate walkabout with a meeting afterwards is a really positive initiative that we plan to repeat across all of the Estates in Camberwell Green hopefully with Harriet as she is a very positive asset for us!

Good news on the home front with mum likely to get out of hospital on Friday so I shall be going up for the weekend to help dad out when she gets home. I am relieved that she is geting better!

The New Academic Year at London Met is underway and I was manning the Freshers Fair Stand as usual this week at City with the second one tomorrow at North.
I really enjoy meeting the new students although a bit tiring on the knees after being on my feet all day!
Hibs lost 0-3 to a very good Rangers team at home on Saturday and I watched it on Setanta. The score flattered Rangers and Hibs midfield and attack played well for most of the game but our defence still looks vulnerable and at times we looked very slow and flat!! Still not a bad performance but we play Celtic next!
