I am a long-standing member of SydSoc, although a largely non-active one. One of the reasons I joined was because I liked the idea of an amenity society - a group that worked for the common good rather than for individual interests, by making representations about things like planning applications, transport proposals etc, with view to stopping ugly and inappropriate developments, and preserving or enhancing those features of Sydenham that made it a good and physically attractive place to live for everyone. .
I still think there is a role for this sort of body. Anyone can join (£5 a year) and make their voice heard, ask questions about policy etc, I don't see why SydSoc should feel itself in any way accountable to members of this forum, which I guess is a lot less representative of the people of Sydenham than SydSoc itself.
