The begining - lift off!
Some tenants and their supporters organize a public meeting in the nearby Woodside Halls because their lift has been off for some time.
There were some twenty or so people in attendance, including many people from outside of the Cedar Court scheme who were interested in the situation there.
The meeting was also attended by Margaret Docherty (at that point the Acting Community Housing Manager) who hides in the audience, and then begins interrupting people and being disruptive. When she was asked to leave she refuses. When asked again she makes a move to go but starts speaking to people 'to resolve their problems' while the meeting is continuing.
The right hand lift at 65 Cedar st. has been off for two months by this point.
