Another rift in Westborough, another let down for residents
July 31, 2013 13 Comments
It seems we have another spat in a residents association in Westborough ward. It is almost comical, but it is also rather sad. A few years ago we had RAW – the Residents Association of Westborough. There were squabbles within this organisation (I am taking no sides here) and the WCA (Westborough Community Association) was formed. RAW eventually became RAW 2012.
Anyway, there has now been a disagreement in WCA which has led the person in charge of their website taking it down. Without passing any judgement on the rights and wrongs in this dispute I am surprised that the website does not belong to the organisation rather than to one individual.
It does appear that the fragile egos of those trusted with running residents groups in this ward are undermining any good work they may be undertaking. No wonder these groups are finding fewer supporters nowadays – they are making themselves irrelevant. I have been involved in running enough bodies to understand that disagreements do happen; successful organisations are those that get over these internal disagreements.
If you go to http://www.wwca.eu/ you will find this:
Westborough Community Association
Due to unforeseen circumstances the WCA web site is off line for the foreseeable future so are the email addresses
The next meeting is Wednesday 18th September at the Royal British Legion, Northview Drive, Westcliff, at 7PM for 7-30 to 9PM
