The Tabard Times dropped through the letterbox today, and it makes grim reading. Allegations of ballot fixing in the recent poll, and committee members suspending each other, with no-one knowing who has the authority to make any final decisions.
It seems security guards have been hired to stop committee members interfering with residents files. The whole situation is a complete shambles.
Later the Tabard Gardens
Estate News arrived filled with counter allegations. It seems there are two camps competing for control of the TMC. I think it's time for Southwark Council
to take control of the situation and audit the accounts and decide who is in control.
I have never been to a TMC meeting, nor taken any interest in the shenanigans of the various committees, but unless Southwark take immediate responsibility, I wouldn't be surprised if the TMC funds end up in a Swiss bank.
The TMC Annual General Meeting takes place on Wed. 26th Nov, 7pm, at St Saviour's & St Olave's School, New Kent Road
Let's hope London-SE1 has a reporter there to capture the scene.
