CityGulls solution!

Dear All...let's work together to solve issues that only locals would appreciate and not a consultant!!! Even though I am a PR & business consultant by profession, I feel who better to come up with solutions than the people who actually live here and not potentially a string of consultants whose only interest is to drag solutions in order to get paid! here's my suggestion of which I have also stated to Don Foster online...Email us your suggestions two paragraph solution or simply come to our next CityCentre PACT meeting on 9th October at 6:30pm in the Guildhall...

A wonderful turnout at the Council Chambers on 18th April and on behalf of the residents and the businesses of city of Bath, I am well pleased with the accomplishments of our Gov & Police department who are tackling every PACT issue raised hence I am proud to announce that since my two year tenor as Chair our PACT priorities are positively dwindling! Well done team! This has been my personal goal to be in the position of raising residents issues and the insatiable drive to follow thru with Council and our Police to resolve and achieve great results for our beloved city.

The First King Of England was Crowned where?!!! Hmmm

Yes indeed...Our First King was crowned here in Bath, at the Bath Abbey! As you should also know that we are the first in many other things including the first stamp in the world, The Penny Black, being posted from Bath! We should be very proud of our heritage.

Just incase you are new to PACT.

Partners and Communities Together (PACT) PACT meetings are public meetings - open to everyone living or spending time in a neighbourhood. They are designed to be regular meetings where members of the public raise issues and vote on which issues should be priority. A panel of key partners and stakeholders will then be tasked to action these and report on progress to the next meeting. PACT meetings enable low level, localised community safety issues to be addressed together with partners using all available options and solutions. They enable local people (i.e. people living, working or spending time in the area) to assist with problem solving on a local level. They enable people to ‘task’ their Neighbourhood Team and other community representatives. PACT meetings provide communities with clear information about how they can get in touch with their local Neighbourhood Beat Manager (NBM) or PCSO. By ensuring that there is an opportunity to meet the Neighbourhood Team at a local open meeting, communities will be provided with reassurance that they have access to their local team. Our next PACT meeting is on 18th April 2012, 6:30pm at the Bath Guildhall.

Bath Fashion Week...not so local!

As you must have heard, March is a month of many exciting events, firstly the annual Bath Half Marathon on the 11th followed by the Bath Fashion Week on the week of the what you may not know is that our city is already being closely watch by as far a place as the island of Bermuda! So much so that a Bermuda Gov dignitary is intending to fly over and see what all the fuss is about, so let's show Mr Simmons of Bermuda how beautifully civilized we are here in conclusion we are not just a West Country city in England that gets local attention but also international attention! Guess it must also be our recent award received for being the cleanest city in UK! I am very proud of our city and believe that together as a community we can achieve Greatness!...well done to our Police, Council, David at Tourism and Andrew at BID...and oh yes do remember to circle 18th April in your calenders for our next PACT meeting at the Guildhall...
