Public meeting aims to make Acomb ‘feel like home again’
PEOPLE in Acomb are encouraged to have their say on the future of the area at a consultation meeting next month.
The event is designed to give residents their say on what would make Acomb “feel like home again”.
It promises it will be “a large-scale” discussion, but focusing on the local area.
In the last few months, activities to encourage people become more active in the community have included Acomb Alive, the York Foodbank, and the Acomb Dance Arts and Music (ADAM) Festival, which saw 50 acts perform around the city.
The Rev Ned Lunn, of St Stephen’s and St Aidan’s Church, said: “We’re keen to get as many people involved, invested or interested in Acomb to come together and to build healthy partnerships, to pool resources and to find solutions to complex issues of community growth. It’s like an organised coffee break where you can meet lots of people and network with relevant people.”
Mr Lunn said all opinions and ideas were welcome, even if contributors were not sure how to carry them out.
He said: “This is not just about talking but about finding exciting and new opportunities to develop Acomb into a place we can be proud of.
“We know from experience that better things can be accomplished when we collaborate and share resources so come along to be surprised again at what can be achieved when we commit together.”
The meeting will be held in the main auditorium of the Gateway Centre in Front Street, on Monday, October 7, between 9.30am and 4pm.
