Yes, Mr Resident

Somebody once asked me whether I regard the blog as an electronic pillar of local democracy; a 21st century microcosm of sociological engagement and a case study in micropolitical interaction.

I told them I haven't the foggiest.

But if engagement in your local community is indeed your thang then there's a chance to do it in real life courtesy of the Worcester Park Residents Association.

The Association's Chairman, Ian Elvey, has e-mailed the Worcester Park Blog to throw down the electronic gauntlet:

"Calling all bloggers – come away from your keyboards and meet other people with concerns for our local community.

The Worcester Park Residents Association (Sutton) is holding an Open Forum on Community Participation on Wednesday 18 March, 7.45 – 9 pm in the Worcester Park Library.

This is an open invitation to everyone in Worcester Park (Sutton). If you are concerned about the place where we live, and can see the benefits of meeting with like-minded people, we would like to hear your ideas on how we can all work together to improve areas of common concern."

See you there! Possibly.
