Eighteen months ago FORA Vice Chair Tony Fernandes applied for funding via the LBWF ward funding process and our bid, for a community noticeboard, was approved. Today FORA has been given the keys so we are now able to put up leaflets and information about what is going on locally. We hope that you will find this additional way of keeping in touch with neighbours useful and interesting.
Our special thanks to Steve Halter and Ruth Mitchell of LBWF and also to LBWF Cllrs Shabhana Dhedhi , Gerry Lyons , Kastriot Berberi and Cllr Clyde Loakes who supported our bid.
Please feel free to send any local community events etc , you wish to publicise via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, close of play each week .
*These should ideally be in the form of a PDF or Word doc. and a max of 1 page per event ,subject to availability of space . Preference will be offered to FORA members and ward locals in fairness , but everyone is welcome to send in appropriate content.
Every Sunday evening , the notice board will be refreshed as appropriate
If urgent , we can certainly send out via social media ,mailing lists etc as appropriate but for the sake of practicality , for now hard copy updating can only happen once weekly .
We will review how that works and improve on that in due course ,as time and offers of assistance make possible
Ideally, please mail or drop off your hard copy at 101 Whipps Cross Road, generic mailbox slot ,for the Attention of A A Fernandes . This minimizes any printing, time etc costs to FORA
Further arrangements to drop off hard copy at a local shop adjacent to noticeboard are being negotiated
If urgent i.e lost pets etc , you may of course, post on the exposed BACK of the notice board, but please ensure it is covered in plastic protector or similar against the elements . You will need Blu tack of similar to do so.
