Upcoming Events

Membership Consultation Events - Two session to choose, Tuesday 23, 18.00 & Tuesday 30, 14.30.

More information and booking details

Last year we held events for members which helped direct the Trust's activities for 2017. We have decided that these meetings should become an annual fixture in the Trust's calendar.

We will consider:

  • How the Trust can continue to make Leeds a better place to live, work and play.
  • What kind of membership do we want (and should it better reflect the population of Leeds as a whole and if so how do we bring that about)?
  • What should we do to involve our members in the work and activities of the Trust and keep our activities interesting and relevant?
  • How can you get the best from your membership?
  • How should we involve and encourage supporters of the Trust (even if they are not members)?
  • Is there anything we don't currently do, that you think we can do?

We have arranged for two meetings - for the evening meeting on 23 January there will be wine and nibbles; for the afternoon meeting on 30 January we'll be serving tea & cakes. For catering purposes, please register for your preferred date.

We would like to hear your views and have your input into what the Civic Trust should focus on in the coming months and years.

We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you there.
