I've just been to the third meeting of the Greenhill/Melbreck residents' association. I've been working with local people to get something going in that part of L18 . We had a general set up session which identified some key issues and the next two meetings were on themes - one on policing type topics and tonight's on the local environment. Obviously you can't solve every problem with a few meetings but there's a core of local people now and the group should be able to go on and be successful in helping make the area better.
If you live in the area you should have had at least one leaflet through your door about meetings, but if not and you'd like to go on the e mail list to be kept up to date, just drop me an e mail at email@example.com. I'll need your address as well as we need to keep a list of members (membership costs nothing!)
