This event is open to Parish Councillors in Stratford upon Avon area together with District Councillors and those from the County Council that have constituencies in this part of the County.
The theme this year is Climate Change something that is a concern to all Parish Councils.
Jonathan Owen, Chief Executive at NALC, will be our key note speaker along with representatives from the County, District and Parish Councils who will talk about their roles within this agenda.
Voluntary and Community Organisations will also be attending to demonstrate the great initiatives that are already happening in the District to tackle Climate Change. There will be an opportunity for discussion/workshops within the event and for feedback in terms of next steps and how we can all work together on this very important topic.
As numbers are limited for this event, we request that only 2 representatives per parish attend
