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 second Why Create A New Local Council? Networking Event.
We are hosting a second evenings at the wonderful Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre:
Tuesday 29th November in the basement South Bank 3 room.
The event will run from 5.30 until 7.30pm ... the speakers will start around 6.15pm and be followed by half an hour of Q&A and general discussion 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 give you the chance to debate these issues 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 (no more than 35 people on the evening) so you will need to reserve a place through this booking page.
