Catching Up

I've been so busy recently I'm afraid I've rather neglected this blog, here below is a list of some of the meetings I've attended.

  • On 13th May I chaired the meeting of the Formby Business Partnership, this was held at the
    Cafe Des Crepes 
  • On Wednesday 19th  May I attended the Formby Business Breakfast Forum, held as usual at Range High School.
  • On Thursday 20th May I met with the new Chair of Formby Parish Council, Cllr Mike Coles and Mo Kundi of Sefton MBC, we have agreed to consider making another new application for external funding to do with a project in relation to Climate Change 
  • On Saturday I attended an exciting and useful event in Chipping Village Hall in Lancashire on the topic of Community Engagement.
  • Finally yesterday, 27th May, I attended a meeting to review the work of ChangeUp Merseyside. ChangeUp is a UK government initiative aimed at improving the capacity of the voluntary and community sector to deliver public services by 2014.
One of the activities that has occupied my time is the development of a new web site( to celebrate and support local life in Formby. It is still very much in 'beta' form, but I'd welcome your views and/or better still offers to be involved in running the site, please contact me for more details.
