SDA news

The organising committee of SDA met this afternoon (1 February 2023) to review progress and to look at future activities. The democracy cafés continue, now in our new home in the Progress Café in Endless Street*. It is good to see new members joining us as well as the regular stalwarts. You can read a note of our debates elsewhere on this site of course. It is free to come (although we do ask for a small contribution if you can) and they start at 10:00, finish at noon, on the second Saturday of every month, the next one being on 11 February.

This is a brief note of our meeting today:

– We shall be sharing a stall in the Market Square on Saturday 25th February and we should be there from around 9 am or soon after. It would be a good opportunity to drop by and chat if you want to know more about us. We are sharing with Make Votes Matter.

– We had a long discussion about possible Talkshop events. The first one was very successful and played a key role is getting the EcoHub project launched. Various possible topics were discussed and New Local Politics looked an attractive option. You can read more about this innovative idea by following this link. This is still in the very early stages of planning so details are not available as yet. If you are interested, keep an eye on this site as planning progresses. It will probably be run in June.

If you would like to join us either at a Democracy Café, or at the stall, you would be most welcome and if you would like to be more active and contribute to planning events, that would also be welcomed.

*for those of you not from Salisbury, Endless Street is off the eastern end of the Market Square and the café is a few yards up on the right.
