London Branch Social
Wed 29 March 2017, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
he first of a regular social and support gathering will be held on the 29th of March 6.30 onwards at: The Old Crown New Oxford Street WC1A 1BH
BASW London canvassed members asking for their wishes for future events and various themes emerged. One was in addition to the informative educative and campaigning style of events which we hold there was a wish for us to create a safe space where members could meet in a social and supportive way to get to know each other and discuss issues informally. We have chosen a central London pub venue, just a few minutes’ walk from Holborn and Tottenham Court Road tube stations. There are two private upstairs rooms and we can order food and drink as we chose. It is hard to know how many of you wish to join in so we will dip our toes in the water and see how many book. It may be that the venue is too small and if so we will seek alternatives for future gatherings.
There is a small charge of £5 which will be offset against food and drink.
We anticipate that we will be oversubscribed so please do book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The BASW London Branch organising committee is aware it has been a while since the London event on working with asylum seekers which was a great success. However, it really showed us that the BASW London organising group needs additional member involvement and help therefore we are seeking assistance from branch members to support future events and increase our capacity to do more and be more active.
