Trent Park Meeting

David Burrowes MP and Cllr Jason Charalambous met with JLL (Jones Langley LaSalle) who have been appointed as fixed charge receivers in relation to Trent Park Campus.
JLL confirmed the following:
They will be undertaking all the necessary works required from a Notice of Works issued by Enfield Council on the advice of English Heritage. Southgate Hockey Club has been given the security of a licence for the sports ground and access and parking on the grounds. The much criticised security company has been removed and replaced by VPS who will not be hiring out the site for filming e.t.c. in the way the previous security company appeared to be doing. Their priority is to secure Trent Park Campus and ensure it is sold as soon as is feasible.
Regular communication will take place between JLL and David Burrowes MP and Cllr Jason Charalambous to keep the Save Trent Park Campaign informed.
David Burrowes said “I was relieved to finally meet JLL who are taking seriously their responsibilities to secure Trent Park Campus and ensure it is sold to viable new owners. After so much uncertainty it is good news that JLL are managing the short term future of Trent Park Campus and carry out essential building works to protect the historic fabric of the Mansion House. There needs to be good engagement with the public to agree the long term future which respects the integrity of the Mansion House and it’s historic setting in Trent Park.”
Campaign coordinator Cllr Jason Charalambous said “It was reassuring to meet with JLL who appear to be taking their responsibilities seriously and that the campus now appears to be in safer hands. Together with David Burrowes, the Save Trent Park campaign team and the Council’s Working Group I am optimistic that, despite the challenges, we will be able to work together with JLL and a new buyer to ensure that the enormous heritage at the listed mansion and surrounding grounds is respected and a positive future can be secured. We look forward to hosting another public meeting soon to discuss the latest developments and ensure the public get an opportunity to have their say over the future of Trent Park”.

Easter Newsletter

Apart from Cadbury's most people recognise Easter, particularly Christians as we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. A dedicated holiday on Good Friday highlights our enduring Christian heritage. As for me I will have contrasting experiences of Easter. On Good Friday I will attend the Greek Orthodox service at St Demetrios Church and join with many hundred in procession around the church. On Saturday 22nd April at 7.30pm I will be taking part in a dramatic presentation at my church in Enfield ( donning a wig and gown as a Defence Counsel in a case about the evidence for the Resurrection entitled 'Who moved the stone?'

I recognise my Jewish constituents are also celebrating a most significant time in their calendar remembering the Passover. For others it is simply a time to be with the family and eat lots of chocolate! However you will be celebrating Easter, I send you my best wishes.
