MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT TONY COLMAN
of the joys of being an MP is the contact it brings
with the voluntary groups and charities which do so
much to enrich the lives of individuals in our community.
I was very pleased to attend on Friday March 1st the
launch of Age Concern's new office at 4 Arndale Walk
in the Wandsworth Shopping Centre.

citizens and it was a real privilege to be there

leads me naturally to Putney's voluntary group, PROP
(Putney and Roehampton Organisation of Pensioners), who meet
regularly at Lady North Hall in Ravenna Road in Putney. This
is primarily a campaigning group which fights doggedly for
improvements in pensioners' lives locally and nationally.
I was very glad at one point to be able to arrange for the
former Chair of PROP, Laurie Green, to join a delegation of
pensioners' leaders to No. 10 Downing Street. I am told that
Laurie grilled the Prime Minister as firmly and courteously
as he and other PROP members grill me
when I attend their meetings. It was PROP too, under their
current Chair Len Holmes, that organised at very short notice
the stormy consultation meeting with Consignia that preceded
the franchising of Putney Crown Post Office.
third group I would like to pay tribute to is the Putney
Society, which must be one of the most active amenity
societies in the country. This group also meets regularly
in the Lady North Hall and, quite rightly, gives me at least
as hard a time as PROP at their meetings. If you have a strong
interest in planning matters, the built environment, conservation
of buildings and green spaces, the local health economy or
any other matter, such as aircraft noise, that affects the
quality of life locally, join the Putney Society.
