A CAMPAIGNING residents association is “in very real danger of ceasing to exist”, according to its chairman.

Peter Symonds sent an email to members of Combined Residents Association of South Hampstead warning of “grave problems” ahead of its annual meeting on June 12.

Mr Symonds, who has been chairman for seven years, wrote: “At last year’s AGM I gave notice of my intention to stand down this year as chair. One year on, not one single member has stepped forward, with the result that we now face the prospect of our association being leaderless when I stand down in June.”

He added: “Consequently, one of the most active residents associations in the borough is, once again, in very real danger of ceasing to exist.”

The annual meeting is at the Crossfield Centre in Fairhazel Gardens.
