Spring into West Hill
As the sound of anniversary congratulations to Vinod and Meena of Bright News fades, citizens of West Hill have been giving their support to Stephen Anderson of Buckingham Road who is taking part in the Brighton Marathon on 18 April in aid of Cancer Research UK. He is dedicating the run to his mother, Barbara, who died from cancer last year and to numerous friends and colleagues who have suffered from this disease. He’s raising money and a sponsorship form is in Bright News or donations can be given via the website www.justgiving.com/stephen-anderson
On 26 March, The Whistler’s Finance writer, David Foot, is walking from Southampton to Wembley to watch Southampton Football Club playing in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final against Carlisle FC on 28 March. He will walking in aid of the “Everyman” prostate and testicular cancer charity, and is also looking for sponsorship. Visit www.justgiving.com/saintswembleywalk and make a donation there or write to The Whistler if you’d like to sponsor him. Every little helps.
The AGM of the West Hill Community Association for 2010, at which the accounts will be adopted and officers and committee will be elected, will be held on Tuesday 27 April at 7.30pm at West Hill Hall. All nominations for the committee must be seconded and have the written consent of the nominee. Our constitution’s first objective is: to promote the benefit of the inhabitants of the area, without distinction of gender, sexuality, or political, religious or other opinions. The business of the meeting will be followed by an always-popular Quiz, set and presented by David Perrett. Refreshments and bonhomie free.
Communities are good for the spirit, and given a degree of nurture, will continue to flourish, just like the wild life garden at the West Hill Hall, which will need volunteer helpers again this Spring and Summer to keep it alive and thriving.
