At the meeting at St George Library yesterday (Wed 5th July) the St George Community Network elected its first Chair and the Working Group which will run the day-to-day activities of the Network for the next 12 months.
SGCN also formally adopted its terms of reference.
Rob Acton-Campbell was elected as chair, other Working Group members are Diane Jones, Fiona Russell, Grenville Johnson, Jo Chesterman, Nigel Williams & Susan Acton-Campbell.
The Working Group will meet next month to agree future meeting dates and other aspects of the SGCN’s organisation.
There are vacancies on the Working Group and also ambitions to form other sub-groups to cover issues like planning and traffic & transport. If you would like to take an active role in running this new organisation then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org.
The group is determined to spend as little time as possible on organisational matters and meetings and to focus its energy on improving live in St George.
We also agreed to organise a public meeting later this month to discuss the Council’s ‘Your Neighbourhood’ consultation. We will email and post details once they are finalised. Details of the consultation including a list of consultation events organised by the Council around the city are at www.bristol.gov.uk/council-spending-performance/your-neighbourhood-consultation-2017
