Previous meeting minutes

Please read the previous meeting minutes in advance if you want to comment on them.

  • Details of who at the council does what, and their email addresses, have been shared on Slack. These shouldn’t be given to members of the public, who should be directed to enjoy@walthamforest.gov.uk
  • Any comments/corrections?

Campaigning, Outreach and LCC

  • Volunteer needed for LCC Festive Local Group Forum, Wednesday 11th December. The first hour being the usual forum, and the second hour will be mince pies, followed by a trip to the pub for anyone who would like to join us. 6:30pm at LCC’s office.
  • Upgrading the stall for 2020 – LCC’s local group shop: T-shirts and how’s our gazebo?
  • Motherload – joint screening with Cycle Sisters

One Year plan and group structure

An update on our plan for 2020:

  • Explaining how the group works and the role of ‘group officers’.
  • Our working groups have their own slack channels. If volunteers aren’t able to use Slack they can be updated by another means or the conversation could move elsewhere.
  • I’m proposing to shelve the engagement event, pencilled in for April. We don’t have a compelling reason to draw new people in (like the MH funding did) and new volunteers have means we have the capacity to engage new people throughout the summer.
  • Next steps – getting feedback on our plans for 2020.
