Turning ideas into actions!

Bath's Guildhall.
Bath’s Guildhall.

An invitation for you to come and let the people who run Bath know what you think about how business, community groups and council are doing and share some ideas of your own on how to improve things for everyone.  

That’s what you are invited to do at the Guildhall on May 1st between 2 and 8p where Bath and North Somerset Council will be organising the second Bath City Conference entitled ‘From Ideas to Actions.’

Everyone is welcome to attend during this free event. People can drop in and take part in a range of workshops and discussions and share their views on how ideas can be turned into actions.

A broad range of local businesses, community groups, charities, social enterprises and B&NES Council departments will be showcasing their services in the Banqueting Room.

The work groups established at the last conference will be reporting back on their progress to date. Workshops and presentations will be taking place in other areas of the Guildhall on topics as varied as transport, leisure, city centre vibrancy and sustainable development.

Towards the end of the day there will be a panel discussion in the Council Chamber Chaired by Henry Brown and including Council Chief Executive Jo Farrar and Leader Councillor Paul Crossley to debate the issues raised during the course of the day, the discussion will be available as a webcast and will also be relayed onto a screen in the Guildhall.

Councillor Crossley (Lib-Dem, Southdown) said, “This is an excellent opportunity for people to engage in the future of their community. Bath & North East Somerset Council is developing an exciting range of talks and presentations that will inform and raise awareness of how we are working with local communities and partners to make our areathe place to live, work, and visit in the UK.”

Councillor David Dixon (Lib-Dem, Oldfield) said, “The event last year was very successful with hundreds of people coming through the doors to get involved in the future of their area. I hope that people can take the time once again to visit the Conference.”

The aim of the day is to engage with the people of Bath whether they live work or visit the City; we want to discover what they think, what they value in the city? What could be improved? And explain what part people can play now and in the future.
