Belsize Society Newsletter February 2022

Posted on 6/2/2022

The February BelSoc Newsletter is online here as a pdf

Welcome to the February Newsletter of the Belsize Society.
You’ll see, with this Newsletter, the papers for the Annual General Meeting (or you have had the papers emailed). We will be returning to meeting in person at Belsize Square Synagogue, able to talk about the Society and enjoy cakes and tea together. We do look forward to the event.

In this Newsletter, we’re covering the outcome of the 100 Avenue Road appeal, where the Society played an active part. We were very pleased with the outcome, as the inspector rejected the appeal. We also report on the Society work to plant trees in the area, an initiative to commemorate the Queen’s jubilee, and the successful carol concert we held in December. The issue also reviews a recent play at the Hampstead theatre with strong local links.

As we restart events and other Society activities, we are looking for volunteers. Across the Newsletter are some of the opportunities for members to help, whether with the Newsletter itself or on our Committee. You’ll see the annual request for recommendations for Tradesmen You Can Trust. Let us know about the tradesmen that you have used, as that helps us keep the list up-to-date. Also, ,Belsize Library Friends are on the look-out for volunteers.

We were sad to hear of the passing of former Treasurer Jill Tyrell. Current Treasurer Neil Harris remembers her.

The Newsletter describes changes the Council are making to improve cycle paths in Belsize and – as May sees Borough-wide local elections – we highlight the new boundaries that will be used for the elections.

Hope you enjoy the Newsletter.
