    Default laid on, prelude, resolve

    We laid on meeting with our neighbours to resolve our local problems yesterday. I hope it will be a prelude to reform in our neighbourhood.

    Please correct mistakes if any.

    I think it's correct but "laid on meeting" is a little unconventional if not wrong.

    Two of the best sentences you have written so far, Gary.

    I agree you need the indefinite article "a" in front of meeting. I am happy with "reform", though "reforms" can also be used.

    So Anglika,
    Do you agree to my addition of "a"before 'meeting " and "s" to "reform"?
