Two new members joined the Residents Advisory Panel when it met in July, bringing numbers back up to seven. The new members are Dr Steve Clarke of Northfield Court and Mr Gerald Walker of Badsworth Gardens. RAP discussed the presentation of estate annual reports and the format for annual meetings. The panel is Cognatum’s think-tank, a sounding board providing advice and ideas, and is normally chaired by MD John Lavin. It now meets three times a year in Wallingford and anyone interested in joining should contact the chairman of the panel.
