West Didsbury Residents Association AGM

Last night I went to the West Didsbury Residents’ Association AGM at the Albert Club on Old Lansdowne Road in West Didsbury. It was good to see Barry Aelion there for the first time since he stood down as Secretary and Planning expert at the AGM last year after a 20 year stint!
One or two of the faces have changed over the forteen years that I’ve been going to WDRA meetings – many people will remember Doreen who passed away and Vanessa who moved to Cumbria to fight “foot and mouth” – but what is more amazing is the number of people who are still there. Pam is still the Chair, Jenny is still collecting subs, Paul is still the Treasurer and Niall (who is soon to move) has been involved in organising social events in the all time that I’ve been there. Others like Alison have become involved during my time, and I’d be willing to bet that she will still be defending the local environment against developers in another 10 or 20 years time.
