Conurbation 2050 Lunch - Visions for the Long-Term Future
Friday, January 14, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM (GMT)
Radical Ideas Welcome!
AFTER the General Election in 2010 a group of Bournemouth-based business people got together to discuss how they could create a forum to share ideas and promote discussion about the future of the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch conurbation.
We wanted to give more people a chance to make a contribution to the local community on the basis of their skills, their lifestyle and their needs.
The purpose of the Conurbation 2050 group is to bring together entrepreneurial and public-spirited individuals, so they can share ideas and do things together, using their own initiative.
We can raise our own money and complete modest projects, proving that you don’t necessarily have to be part of the political process to make a difference.
The important thing is anybody can come along to one of our breakfasts or lunches, and share an idea, however unconventional or impractical, and get a hearing in front of influential members of the community.
Our first lunch is on Friday 14 January 2011 at the award-winning Green House Hotel, 12 - 3pm.
For £20 you will get a two course lunch as well as hearing a selection of presentations from local entrepreneurs, hosted by Tobias Ellwood, MP for Bournemouth East.
Guests should arrive by midday, presentations will begin at 12.15pm and lunch will start at 1pm.
Anyone is welcome to attend, and anyone who wishes to send in an idea (not more than 400 words on a single A4 sheet of paper on a Word document) will see the proposal circulated to guests and they will have a chance, if they wish, to give a two minute presentation before the lunch to all guests.
You need to send your idea to Steve Parsselle (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 7 January 2011.
If you would like to attend, please make a payment through Eventbrite or send your cheque for £20, made payable to Steve Parselle, to Steve Parselle, 11 Southbourne Overcliff Drive, Bournemouth, BH6 3TE
Please book your place in good time as numbers are limited.
