WESTWAY TRUST UP TO TRICKS!
Angela McConville, the Irish CEO of the Westway Trust has had great success with the Blarney Stone.....judging from the embarrassingly self promoting guff in her Linkedin entry.
'The Westway Trust was formed in the 1970s, to take on the challenge of regenerating and managing 23 acres of derelict land under the A40 flyover, which had sliced through North Kensington. That is just the beginning of the story … I joined the Trust in 2013 and have reinvigorated the Trust’s future strategy – creating a ‘Destination Westway 2030’ strategy, which seeks to establish Westway as one of London’s premier destinations for culture, enterprise, sport, fitness and artisan retail. I am passionately committed to the Trust’s core aim of maximising social impact through improving the health and economic well being of the community in and around Westway.'
So is part of the 'maximisation of social impact' kicking the West London Stables off the site?
Sarah Tuvey has been running the stables for years. Her work for the disadvantaged, the disabled and local schools has won her Mayoral awards and the praise of the local community. And it's that community who are shocked at the underhand ways used by the Trust to remove Sarah
McConville seems not have the foggiest idea about strategic direction: one minute the land is going to be developed....the next the plans are shelved. What is clear is that Sarah's riding school is an integral part of the strategy of promoting 'sport for all' in the area. So why is Miss McConville so determined to get rid of a major component of that strategy? The Dame will be pursuing this one and talking to her friends at Private Eye....she smells the stench of naughtiness! All information welcomed.
