Howard Selwyn, Chairman of Sheldon Residents Association.

Sheldon Residents Association committee meeting

Since there was some difficulties with having meetings at the King George V pub the meeting have now moved to the Chairman’s house.

The next meeting of Sheldon Residents Association will be on the 21st April 7.30pm at the new address, Howard’s House number 568 Barrows Lane  B26 3BE. There is plenty of room at the Chairman’s house for the meeting, he tells me that tea and coffee will be provided.

This is your opportunity to try and make a difference in Sheldon. There is always a local Councillor present at these meetings for to raise any concerns you have over issues in Sheldon.
