The facilitators organised another pot luck dinner in July 2018. The main objective was to give the community the opportunity to meet them and hear about what they would be doing. The dinner was intentionally informal, giving people time to mix and mingle and get to know their neighbours.
A visual activity showed a range of project ideas from the community plan and people were invited to ‘vote’ for the three projects that were the highest priority for them, by putting on stickers. They were also encouraged to sign up to get involved.
Over 180 people attended the pot luck dinner. Volunteers – including Alan Maxwell’s youth group, the Lionesses, members of the Fab Feathy Steering Group and individuals – helped set up the room, distribute food, run the kitchen, and clean up afterwards. The youth group also provided entertainment.
