Following the West Midlands Regional Network event in Worcester last November, a small group have met to look at organising a Regional Gathering later this year.
Picking up on the flavour and feedback from this event, the working title for the Gathering is ‘Nourishing your Transition Group’ with the aim of returning from the event enthused and energised!
Ideas for the day include a ‘speed-dating’ market place sharing what the different groups do, a keynote input which will focus on getting things done, afternoon practical workshops on specific topics and a ‘time-out’ space available as and when required during the day.
The suggested date for the Regional Gathering is Saturday 6th October and there are two potential venues in Worcestershire: the Fold near Worcester and the Bishops Wood Centre near Stourport. The group feel that Bishops Wood offers a better range of facilities and could accommodate a larger group, but is more expensive. They have made a provisional booking but would like to hear from anyone who may have another option elsewhere in the region.
They would also be grateful for any feedback and/or offers from anyone who has ideas to contribute to the planning of the Gathering.
