Acknowledgements

Thanks to Marian Ferrugia for all her organisational skills regarding
the meeting, and for organising the delicious vegan fare. It was a
great venue this time, and gave the north of the borough a look-in!
We had attendees, not just from Hackney, but further afield too.

Presentations followed the AGM–thanks to Sally Haywill for hers on STA Bikes, and Adam Thompson for a very entertaining talk about critical mass in Rome.
