The 2017 SEBRA AGM took place on Wednesday 22 November at the Porchester Hall.

As ever the event was very well attended and a lot of interest was shown in the exhibitions of Queensway Parade, Whiteleys and the redevelopment of the Newton Road Medical Centre. Our thanks go out to Meyer Bergman & Warrior Property Group, plus the Diocese of London for delivering such excellent displays and answering a wide range of questions.

AGM Proceedings

Following the exhibition Q&A sessions the main business of the evening took place. The invited guests at the top table included Karen Buck MP, Councillor Nickie Aiken -  Leader of Westminster City Council, Councillor Tony Devenish AM and Stuart Love - Executive Director City Management & Communities and Deputy Chief Executive WCC.

Once the formalities of electing officials and presenting the accounts was over, Councillor Nickie Aiken delivered an excellent speech which was well received by the audience. The floor was then opened to the audience to ask questions to the panel. Subject such as policing, the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street and the Cycle Super-Highway were discussed.

As ever, the prize raffle marked the end of the formal proceedings and SEBRA once again would like to thank those who donated prizes:

European Land & Property - Merchant Square • British Land - Paddington Central • Waitrose Bayswater • Hereford Road • George G Hair & Beauty Salon • Kalamaras • The Royal Parks

Drinks Reception

Once again we must thank Veolia for sponsoring the drinks reception which took place after the business of the AGM. The wine and beer flowed and the nibbles from Anna's Kitchen were as tasty as ever. Things wound to a close around 10:00pm and it has to be said that everything ran very smoothly.

The AGM minutes will be published here as soon as they're available and there will be a report on the evening in the Spring 2018 edition of SEBRA NEWS W2.
