Dear Members,

There is another meeting this evening at Julia Boston Antiques, 588 Kings Rd at 5pm


This is to meet a Barrister re the legal redress against both National Grid and the VOA, for both compensation for loss of earnings and special damages. Please come if you can.

Yesterday evening we met Dein Benjamin a solicitor with Sinclairs Law who kindly came up to talk many of us.

This was to go through the options available to us for legal action to be taken against both National Grid for compensation and also for action against the VOA (Valuations Office)  to have the business rates reduced.
