In 2013 as part of my council campaign I took my couch from home and parked up at various places around town to meet people and hand out flyers. I did this because I felt strongly that if I was going to be talking about better community engagement then I should most definitely be practicing what I preach.
For me community engagement is still my number one priority so this year as part of my 2016 campaign I will be doing the same thing – not quite with a couch – but you are sure to see my orange bean bag chairs! (And they are surprisingly comfy too).
So here is a bit of a programme of the places I have locked in so far – and please if you would like me to come and see you or your community or group please send me a message and we can make it happen.
