Olympic Tour Anyone?

I recieved this invite today from another one of the olympic PR-types - Julie King.

I think that as many of us as possible should go on this - as we are all affected in some way or the other.

Anyhow - please read it & respond directly to George Middleton as asked:

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will deliver many benefits to the local community. Some are already being realised with new jobs and business opportunities. We also recognise that there will be an impact on the local community during the construction phase of the project.

To encourage effective channels of communication, the ODA has set up the Olympic Park Engagement Network (OPEN) - a group that brings together representatives from different parts of the community who can meet with senior members of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) team. We anticipate holding these meetings at least twice a year.

I would like to invite you to join OPEN and to attend its first meeting on Wednesday 30 July 2008. David Higgins, ODA Chief Executive, and Ian Galloway, Chief Executive of CLM Delivery Partner, will host a visit around the site followed by a presentation and opportunity for discussion.

A bus will meet attendees at Stratford Regional Station at 6.15pm. The tour and event will run from 6.30-8.30pm.

To confirm your attendance please RSVP by Monday 21 July to noting any specific access or dietary requirements.
I do hope you are able to attend - your input will be extremely valuable to us in the months and years to come.

Hi Sóna

Another bloody pointless PR excercise being offered huh?!

Have the people from Plane Stupid got the figures ready yet?

Did you see them superglue themselves to Gordon Brown last week?

Are you going to do the same when you go?

Hey Sona

Good luck mate! Rather you than me. These people will make me lose my rag with them and then we'll be in trouble see?

Don't let them bullshit you any!

Hi it's Drew

I love the way they said 'unfortunately a few trees had to be removed'!?

To them it may be a few trees, but it was all of us who planted the trees, to us they were not a 'few', but ALL of the trees WE planted for EVERYONE's benefit!

OK - so we never asked anyone's permission to plant them, but surely the massive mature ones could have been spared?

Did they say if they were going to replace them?

Thanks for going , by the way!
