The Sandgate Society will be holding a meeting for members on 13th October to explore ideas on what they would like to see happen to make Sandgate more sustainable. If you would like to attend this interesting meeting do contact the Sandgate Society directly for details of membership. The following message was sent to members:
As you may know from seeing our stall at the Sandgate Sale Safari; The Civic Day at the Quarter House or the Sea Festival we have been asking members of the community for ideas on what they would like to see happen to make Sandgate more sustainable to preserve it for future generations. We have had a positive response and are ready to move forward and put some of the great ideas into action.
We are holding a meeting on Thursday October 13th at 7p.m. in the Reading Room at the Old Fire Station on Sandgate High Street, to discuss these ideas and explore ways forward. Coming along doesn’t commit you to anything and you absolutely don’t have to be a sustainability expert. Hopefully, this will be the start of a group representing all sections of the Sandgate Community, where we can learn from and inspire each other in a supportive and non-judgemental way and crucially make a difference.
Please let us know if you would like to attend or if you are interested but can’t make the time/date. Please also let us know any other ideas you may have so we can put them up for discussion. One thing for sure is we won’t have picked a time and date that will suit everybody but we had to start somewhere…
