Busy day talking about Bath.

A busy day at the Bath City C conference yesterday.IMG_5055

It was the sixth annual meeting held at the Guildhall and giving people an opportunity of finding out more about local action on things like housing, air pollution and transport.IMG_5053
The Banqueting Hall was full of  exhibits, stands and representatives from community groups.

Well it was different. Last night l chaired a ‘Question Time’ styled session – at the end of the Bath Conference – in the Council Chamber at the Guildhall. On the panel – Front row L to R Cllr Tim Warren, Leader of Bath and North East Somerset Council; Sue Porto, CEO St Johns Foundation; Tarquin McDonald, Managing Director of Bath Rugby Club; and Ben Palmer, Community Officer, University of Bath Student Union. Back Row – L to R – The man who organised the event was Cllr Bob Goodman, Cabinet member for Development and Neighbourhoods and l was the Chair!

The event ended with a ‘Question Time’ styled session in the Council Chamber which l was asked to chair.

My thanks – both to the panel –  but more importantly – to the members of the public who came to listen and ask questions!
