voting slipSome really interesting stories have already started to emerge, with a lot of sharing on the type of business people had used.

We found out there were over 90 different business located in the Park district in 1960. From this list we were asked to vote on which businesses we should concentrate on, as 90 would be too many.

The next session is on Friday 11 April from 1.45 to 3.45 at the Park Centre on Chelmsford St.
