Have you always wondered what a local council might be able to do in your area?
Do you want to give power to the people in your community?
Does your community want the chance to manage its own assets?
Does your community want to influence local decisions?
Do you want to provide services to meet local needs?
Would you like to find out a little more about setting up a new local council?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, please do book on to one of our Why Create A New Local Council? Networking Events.
We are hosting two evenings at the wonderful Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre:
Tuesday 25th October in the Fred Miller Room
Tuesday 29th November in the Doreen Ramsay Room
Both events run from 5.30 until 7.30pm ... the speakers will start around 6pm but otherwise the events are to be run on an informal 'drop in' basis so you will be free to come and go as you please.
Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
These informative free events will give delegates the chance to answer these questions as NALC embarks on its broader campaign to create new local (parish and town) councils in London.
Who should attend?
Community group representatives; voluntary association / group representatives; Charity organisations; Think Tanks; Tenants and Residents Associations representatives; Neighbourhood Watch activists; and residents wanting more say in their local community
Numbers are strictly limited so you will need to reserve a place through this booking page.
Who are the speakers?
These two events are very informal networking events (unprogrammed). The keynote speaker at both events is Justin Griggs (NALC Head of Policy and Development)- who will, be speaking about the benefits of creating new local councils nationally.
Cllr. David Drew (Chairman, Andover Town Council, Hants.) will be saying a few words at the 25/10 event about the benefits a new local council has brought to Andover;
and Cllr. Rob Gifford (Chairman, Stony Stratford Town Council, Bucks.) will be saying a few words at the 29/11 event about the benefits a new local council has brought to Stony Stratford.
When & Where
