Event description

Description

The next UNISON South West Regional Council meeting is being held as follows:-


DATE AND TIME: 10.30am to 3pm on Thursday 9 May 2019 (attendance registration opens up at 9.40am)

VENUE: Somerset County Cricket Ground, Taunton (see below for venue details)


... but this clashes with the Branch Officers' weekend, doesn't it?

No, not really. It may be on the same date, but the start time for the Branch Officers' weekend isn't until 6pm at Croyde Bay, and Regional Council is likley to finish much earlier than 3pm.

REGISTRATION

Please note, the registration deadline for observers to regional council is noon on Monday 15 April 2019. After this date, additional observers must register at the registration desk prior to the regional council meeting. All observers attending regional council need to register their attendance at the registration desk prior to the start of the meeting. However, we cannot provide any specific catering which isn't requested before the deadline.


FAQs

Why does anyone need to register to attend this meeting?

ALL regional council delegates, ex-officios, observers and visitors are expected to register their attendance and additional requirements, such as reasonable access, childcare and specific dietary requests.

Registration means we can properly set up the conference and meeting rooms and ensure that refreshments and catering is provided for the correct number of attendees. It also means that we can be greener by providing an appropriate amount of documentation on the day.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Public transport - Should you choose to use public transport, the cricket ground is within a short walking distance of the Taunton train station, and local bus stops and the main bus station. Please see the map link for location of the venue.

Travelling by Car - For those driving, free parking is available on site, but please note, you will need to display a parking voucher when you attend the meeting. The Cricket Ground now operates a self-registration system. You MUST register your vehicle licence plate upon arrival at the meeting on the iPad provided. The iPad will be available after the start of the meeting for any late arrivals. Failure to register a car could result in a fine from the parking company, which the individual will be liable to pay.

Taunton also offers two park and ride options.

Is lunch provided?

Yes, lunch will be provided. It will be available around 1pm. It will take into account dietary requirements where possible, and subject to notification in advance of the meeting. However, if details are not submitted by the registration deadline, we cannot guarantee that any specific food intolerances or allergies can be catered for, and if lots of observers turn up unexpectedly, catering may be sparse!


What do we do if someone needs childcare, needs to bring a facilitator or has access requirements?

Should anyone have any childcare requests, need to bring a facilitator or have access requirements, such as large print, documentation required on a specific coloured paper, please ensure those details are provided when registering your attendance.

When is the agenda issued?

Further details about Regional Council, including the agenda, will be sent to all registered delegates and observers approximately two weeks ahead of the meeting.

How many observers can our branch register?

The number of observers the branch wishes to register is up to each branch. Lunch is provided but all other associated attendance costs are met by the observer's branch. Please ensure that branch observers are informed of this, so they know they need to submit expense claims directly to the branch. Lunch is being provided, therefore, no subsistence should be included in the claim.

I have another question and it's not answered here. Who do I contact?

Any queries, please email Jenn Gollings, the event organiser (c/o southwest@unison.co.uk or c/o 01823 285318).
