              PATIENT ADVICE                              The July meeting of Shaw Residents Association was the unfortunate victim
                                                          of industrial action. The guest speaker Chris Anis of Thamesdown Borough
                                                          Council was involved in the 6 national strike days of NALGO, one of which
             & COUNSELLING                                proved to be the date of the residents meeting. However vice-chairman, Mr
                                                          Steve Brown armed with maps and plans of the new play area behind the
                                                          shops at Shaw Village Centre, bravely continued with the meeting. The plans
                                                          for the play area were well received and are currently on display in the yellow
                                                          hut behind Shaw Village shops. A few residents expressed concern over the
                OPENING TIMES                             play area to be built at Shaw Ridge, however the Residents Association was
                                                          not given sight of these plans and has therefore been unable to affect the
     Open: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday            decision.
                                                            The landlord of the Village Inn offered to display community notices in the
                    9.00a.m. to 6.30p.m.                  pub. There will also be a notice board in the extension he hopes to have built
                                                          in the future.
              Thursday 9.00a.m. to 5.30p.m.                 The next meeting of the Association is in Shaw Church in the Village Centre
              Saturday 9.00a.m. to 5.00p.m.               on Thursday 7 September at 7.45p.m.  The guest speaker will be Denis
                                                          Onley from Community Development at Thamesdown Borough Council. He
          Closed for Lunch 1.00p.m. to 2.00p.m.           will report on progress on the community centre and will answer residents
                                                          questions on community matters. Any items for the agenda should be sent
