Longbridge Convention

Here are the final details of the Longbridge Convention, to which you are invited.

We are looking to get as broad a cross section of the community and service providers as possible. We are in the midst of what is probably the greatest change in the provision of public services for 50 years. We have the choice of sitting back and seeing what happens or influencing what happens. You may not recognise yourself as providing a public service but if you run a scout group, litter pick, have a food bank or just help your neighbours you are surely providing a public service. Whatever term you may use to describe what you do in the community cooperating with other people must surely help; that’s what this convention is about.
