We are in the process of organising an awareness event and inviting local councillors to our cafe en-mass to see us in action. We also had a lady attend last month who is not local but works for the council (not sure in what capacity) and said she will look into grants for us, which is nice! So, I will update you when we've made progress! Smile

That sounds good! Get them happy to be involved, and you get good publicity. Smile

Our current mayor is very proactive, and has been very supportive of a lot of community events, which makes everything work more smoothly. We also have a Town Council liaison on our Transition steering group (Transition is the umbrella under which the RC operates), so we have a direct two-way contact which has sometimes been very useful. It might be worth looking into this as an option, especially if the RC is part of a wider community operation.

Ahh! TD, yes I am in our local TD we've gone a bit quiet of late with people stepping down etc but we do have a planned meeting with the council.
