At the 2017 AGM, the main news were a shop and restaurant discount scheme for all members and an increase of the membership fee, the first such increase for more than 10 years.
Between 80 and 100 CTRAA members squeezed into Inverness Garden on Sunday 17 September, happy to experience yet another sunny party this year.
This year’s CTRAA summer party in the vicar’s garden had perfect weather, wonderful food and wine, a jazz band and some 120 attendees. However, it happened the day after the horrific Grenfell Tower fire, which was on everybody’s mind.
The Cherry Trees Residents’ Amenities Association held its Annual General Meeting in St Mary Abbots Church Hall on Tuesday 15 November, and some 60 members attended.
Just like last year, the meeting was visited by Kensington’s MP, Victoria Borwick, and by two of our ward councillors, Robert Freeman and Catherine Faulks.
In contrast to the CTRAA summer party on 18 May, which had to be moved indoors because of all the rain, the autumn party in Inverness Garden on 11 September was blessed with constant sunshine and warmth.
