4pm - 7pm Thursday 14 February (if you work during the day please feel free to attend a little later)

Experience facilitator, Lee Corner, invites members to come along and help shape the work and ambitions of the Trust for the next five years. The Trust's interests in development, heritage and public amenity are as relevant now as they were when the Trust was founded. But what are the major themes that we should focus on that will guide the activities of our volunteers, supported by our staff at Wharf Street? At the end of the process, we will develop an ambitious strategy that will ensure we continue to be an influential and vital organisation.
