White City Neighbourhood Forum Appoints Committee
14 representatives voted in at launch event
The new White City Neighbourhood Forum, which was launched at White City Community Centre on Saturday September 24 has set up a committee consisting of 21 local residents.
The committee will develop and steer initiatives to promote White City, Wormholt and Shepherd's Bush and deal with community issues
Nominated to the forum were 14 representatives of local organisations. They were joined by seven local residents who were elected unopposed.
Harry Audley, Chairman of the White City Residents’ Association, said he hoped the new forum would bring together everyone with the area’s best interests at heart.
“We expect to share information and resources to obtain maximum benefit, not just for the opportunities that are currently available but also ones that will be available in future," he said.
Councillor Andrew Johnson, Hammersmith & Fulham Council Cabinet Member for Housing, also welcomed the new forum as a valuable initiative in delivering the Borough of Opportunity.
Cllr Johnson said: " I am looking forward to working with the new forum and its members to deliver their ambitions to unlock real opportunities for current and future residents of White City."
One of the forum’s tasks will be to decide how best to spend grant funding on improving the area, particularly Batman Close, the Cleverly estate, White City Close, the White City estate and the Wormholt estate.
The seven resident members of the committee are Niniola Adetuberu, Harry Audley, John Gordon-Smith, Susan Iwai, Hoss Malek, John Ryan and Junior Sterling.
The 14 organisational members are Andrew Fullerton, Sheraz Khan, Linda Moll, Penny Asumang, Vince Hines, Joseph Jacobs, Revd. Ben Humphries, Sgt. Jason Carrigan, Sohail Ayaz, Andrea Lemard, Garry McMillan, Bob Still, Andy Sharpe.
