Make It Happen !

What do we want for our area, East Shoreditch – grime or beauty? Polluted streets or green spaces? Over-stretched facilities or opportunities for young people?

Sunday October 11th is the chance to make your voice heard !

The East Shoreditch Neighbourhood Planning Forum is organising a community Fun Day at Rochelle School that aims to have something for everyone -

* clear explanation of the proposals the ESNPF has put together for the final Plan, after a year of consultation. (Bengali-Sylheti translators available if necessary.)
* raffle with fabulous prizes
* BBQ, bouncy castle and facepainting
* display of the game Boccia by St Hilda’s elders – and maybe an invitation to join in
* three crates of Lego for younger people to build models of their perfect houses
* Bubbles galore….!

Read the details of the 6 main proposals in the Comment Sheet attached, and if you can download and bring it with your own comments, get a ticket for free BBQ and Raffle.

Finding a Common Vision

We’ve been collecting ‘Wishes’  -  what people think about the area and how East Shoreditch could be a pleasanter and more efficient place in which to live and to work.

On Sunday Nov 2nd, we are going to bring all ideas together in a drop-in community day, and shape them further. Come and hear what people have thought so far,  and put in your own ideas. Together we will aim to make a larger Carpet of Wishes.

 Vision flyer Workshop.

There’ll be a short formal Annual General Meeting at 10.30am with a report of actions so far. After that we’ll look at and discuss the ideas that have come up, and have a chance to hear about other visions too, over locally-sourced food at lunchtime.  By 4pm,  with everyone’s help. we believe we’ll have an outline agreement on the next step for our Neighbourhood Plan.

Vision 5flyer Workshop.
