Launch Event – Tonight at 6.30pm
Blantyre Futures (formerly Blantyre Steering Group) and partners Coalfields Regeneration Trust officially launch the ‘Blantyre Community Action Plan 2019-2024’ this evening at 6.30pm….and you’re invited.
The public event takes place at Blantyre Miners Welfare bringing together many local organisations, individuals and interested stakeholders with the common theme of improving all aspects of community life in Blantyre. With so many groups, businesses and individuals involved, collaboration is at the forefront of this new Action plan.
The document is the first published, public led consultation Community Action Plan for the whole of Blantyre since the great work done by community organisations around the time of the Millennium. The plan aims to build on those successes, address concerns from residents about all aspects of life in Blantyre and act upon them. The message will very much be “less obstruction & talk, more collective action.”
Visitors coming along tonight will hear from community groups who have benefited so far from fantastic grant awards and what the generous funding has meant for them. They’ll also hear about the evolution of the steering group and learn of its aims. Additionally, every person attending will be given a free copy of the Action plan and teas, coffee and cake are available.
Come along and see how YOU can get involved in taking the Action Plan forward, the first phase of a focused, 5 year improvement journey for Blantyre.
The event takes place in Blantyre Miners Welfare from 6.30pm until 8.00pm. All welcome.
