BAA meeting

October’s meeting of the committee of the Bohemia Area Association took place on Thursday 5 October. Before the meeting proper started, two members of the public who had come hoping to attend, were requested to leave. But they were invited to attend next month’s open meeting on Thursday 2 Nov at the YMCA. 
  Parking. The perennial linked problems of parking and retail trade were discussed, the meeting being asked by Peter Holland, (chair) ‘Are we flogging a dead horse?’ and ‘Just how many shops are actually trading?’ Perhaps short term ‘stop and shop’ (30mins) parking bays were the answer? Does the body that decides on parking actually listen to the BAA? Andy Holmes explained that HBC certainly does, but that ESCC doesn’t always listen to HBC.
  BAA logo. A simple acronym design was selected. The one of a sheep saying ‘Baa’ wasn’t.
  Naming the twittens. It was agreed that the BAA would canvass residents for suggestions of names for the unnamed alleyways in Bohemia. Forms will be made available at Munday’s Newsagents and Wood’s Newsagents.
  Treasurer’s report. Mike Cramp reported £652 in the bank.
  Bohemia Bygones Exhibition. This is due to be held in the new vestibule at Park Road Church and cannot take place until special paving slabs for the blind have been laid outside the building.
  Newsletter. Andy Holmes, editor, said he hoped to bring out another edition ‘before Christmas’. 
“ Other members attending were:  Jeanette Holland (vice chair), Iris Millar, Rosemary Iddenden, John L Humphries, John D Humphries, Mike Ward, Charles Levitt, Steve Mann, Trevor Webb, Keith Wood and Terry Foord.
