It was agreed to pursue the campaign to restore access across Kings Cross Station (aka Battlebridge) in the medium to long term via Camden Council and Islington Council (Herman T suggests a note is being produced at Islington) The confusion of Frank Dobson MP about Kings Cross Station (not) being in his constituency (Susanne G) was noted.

Twenty's Plenty, the campaign to introduce a general 20mph speed limit on borough roads, has been provisionally adopted in Islington, and we will ask Camden to follow at an area forum in July.

Based on the successful work with Nido's Eco-Fair (22 Apr) through Anup and Sara, it was agreed to hold the next group meeting at 6pm on Thur 4 June (EU polling day) at 200 Pentonville Road -Nido, and following at 6.30pm to hold a guided walk and walking audit for new students. Living Streets people would guide the walk (to Kings Cross Station, via Kings Place / Regents Canal, via Regent Quarter to St Chads Place for a drink) and to familiarise summer school students with Living Streets and Walking Audits in small groups.

Pending next meeting, Gregory C said he would stand for election as chair, Lisa T as treasurer - and nominations are sought for a secretary/ administrator. It is proposed to meet monthly.
