Just received this so posting it here:


I’m writing to you on behalf of Jason Prentis and the Freshview Team because you are a Lambeth resident who is working with us on one of our projects (Green Community Champions, Community Freshview or Snow Wardens), or your job involves working with communities, or you are generally a creative sort of person. Or perhaps all three of the above!


We’d like to invite you to a workshop on Saturday 16 March to help us design and develop a ‘street leader’ or ‘street friends’ scheme. Many other boroughs and cities have street leader schemes where people volunteer to look after their street by reporting environmental issues or dealing with them directly using tools and materials provided by the council. We could just copy those schemes, but Lambeth is unique! In the spirit of co-operation and co-production we want to find out from you exactly what sort of scheme would bring the most benefit to Lambeth’s communities.


You’ll help us answer questions such as:


·         What sort of scheme do people want?

·         How can the council support people to take care of their street?

·         How can we promote the scheme so that it involves as many people as possible?


Apart from helping us to design the best possible scheme, the workshop will offer a unique opportunity for you to meet a very friendly bunch of like-minded people. It will be very informal, there will no doubt be some fascinating conversations, and they’ll provide some lunch. If you’re unable to make it, please think about other people you know who might be interested and let them know about it.


Many thanks to those of you that have got back to us. We’re happy to say that a lot of interest has been generated, but some people have asked whether it’s possible to attend just part of the day rather than the whole thing.


The workshop will be in a meeting room in the White Lion at 232 Streatham High Road, from 11am until 5pm. If you wish, you can attend just part of the day – please email Freshview@lambeth.gov.uk for more details so that someone from the team can get in touch with you.


If you can’t make any of it, please forward this on to friends or neighbours who you think might be interested.


The Freshview team would very grateful if you could let them know as soon as possible whether you can or can’t make it so that they know how many people to expect.
