Our next meeting will be on 15th August at 7.30pm, at the Exchange.
As we have now articulated our ambitions for the how the Think Tank will function in the manifesto, our next aim is to build awareness and encourage more community members to get involved in our meetings.
The Think Tank has asked for a table at the Pier Festival on 21 September, as there was such a great turn out last year this is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the wider community and raise our profile. For this we'll need to decide what we want to have at the Pier Festival and what kind of activities we want to hold to attract people. At the next meeting two of our members, Kate and Paul, will be presenting ideas on activities we could do to engage different age groups and hopefully we can come to a decision on how we want to approach it.
Beyond this we'll also be discussing the long term goals for the Think Tank - how do we want to go about representing the views of the community and what kind of relationship do we want to build with the council and stakeholders in the area. On the 10th October we have invited the council to present to the Think Tank where hopefully we can start to build a productive relationship between us.
We hope to see you there! Please feel free to share this with anyone who may wish to attend.
