Last month saw a gathering of local residents for the first ever Westbourne Meet Up; an evening of socialising, music and entertainment hosted by Paddington Development Trust and The Westbourne Forum.
The evening held in the heart of the local community at The Stowe Centre, Harrow Road saw a great turn out which brought residents of the Westbourne area, both new and old of all ages together to meet their neighbours over free food and drinks. In addition, residents discussed key issues in the area with information from The Westbourne Forum and updates from Vital Regeneration on The Futures Plan and as well as discussion on proposed plans from Thames Water.
Music from folk duo Benny and the Cheesegrinder also brought some free cultural entertainment, which will feature at each future meet up, to the evening which was well received by attendees with one resident claiming ‘it was good to engage with other residents and let them lead the discussions on community issues.’
The next Westbourne Meet Up is scheduled for Wednesday 18th September. If you would like to find out more please E-mail Monika@pdt.org.uk
