We hope this won’t cause any inconvenience to you but let us know if it does.We’ll also be launching our new membership scheme.  This is open to anyone who lives in the area.  It costs £1 for the year and you get a membership card that will also give you special discounts at a number of shops on the street.  However the membership to the association is about more than discounts it is primarily to support CRTRA with the work that we’ve been doing (see our October newsletter) . Membership will also give you a right to vote for committee members to propose projects we should be perusing and ask us for help with any relevant issues that you may have with Hackney Council.You can come and collect your membership card from our stall on any Sunday from next week and also come and have a chat about what we’re doing.”
