Welcome to the blogsite for the Pleasant Residents Association

The Pleasant Residents' Association was formed a number of years ago to act as a focal point for all Residents in the Mount Pleasant, Mount Pleasant Avenue, Little Lane,Robinson Lane estate and Watts Lane area.

Currently the association has suspended it's activities due to lack of volunteers to stand for committee.

Temporary suspension of activities

At the AGM we did not have enough candidates to stand for committee and replace a number of members who were retiring this year.
It was agreed to suspend our meetings and activities until a functioning committee can be formed.
It was also agreed that if the situation remains unchanged in September 2017 then a special meeting would be called and a final decision about the future of the association would be made.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in helping to run the association then please get in touch with James Pocklington on 07939205346

Thanks

Hats off to John!

At the AGM last Wednesday we expressed our thanks to Councillor John Hough for all his years of service to our community. After 14 years as County Councillor John has decided not to stand as a candidate in the forthcoming local election. Cllr Hough has a been a great help to the residents' association and has facilitated action at district and county council level to address local residents' views and concerns. We wish John all the best for the future.
In case you're wondering what the gift was, we presented John with a framed photo of Louth looking east from the top of St James' Spire ....which included distant views of the Mount Pleasant district :)

Access for emergency vehicles

At a recent residents meeting it was reported that a fire engine on first responder duties was unable to access Watts Lane due to vehicles blocking it's path on Mount Pleasant Avenue.
The Fire service are aware of the problem and are in the process of issuing flyers to householders in our locality to ask for residents to "Think before they Park ".

Fire engines are wide vehicles so please ensure you've left enough space for one to pass your car.
