There is not one of us here in Leabank Square who is not going to be affected by the London 2012 Olympics.
Whether it means that we are all going to see one of the events – or whether we are going to be covered in dust for the next 6 years.
Whether one of our children is going to be competing in an event – or our parking spaces are going to be used by construction site workers.
Whether we are going to have our centre green beautifully landscaped by REAP – or there is going to be an increase in trucks thundering down Berkshire Road.
Whether the value of our properties triple – or we are going to have a multi-story car park directly opposite our square on the canal.
Whatever is going to happen as a result of the Olympics – we should all keep as informed as possible.
Please attend as many meetings as you can – and then let all of us know what you heard. Please write to the mayor, MP’s, councillors, Olympic Delivery Authority, London Development Agency, International Olympic Committee, etc, and don’t stop until you’re satisfied with their answers.
We all know that this is going to be the most incredible party that London has ever had – so be a part of it right from the start.
