The ROC Conversation community engagement event is coming to Macclesfield on 23rd March between 7 pm and 9 pm at Holy Trinity Church, Hurdsfield.
The Conversations bring together residents, statutory agencies, community and faith groups who have an interest in the local community. The aim is to celebrate what communities are already doing and identify new ways to address social needs.
Debra Green OBE Founding Director of National Charity Redeeming Our Communities said: “We’ve hosted more than 200 ROC Conversations across the UK and have always been surprised by the amount of hidden work taking place in the community and amazed at how easily gaps in provision can be met by existing community groups once they become aware of the need.”
The free of charge event is taking place at Holy Trinity Church Hurdsfield and anyone who works or lives in Macclesfield is welcome to attend. Following on from the evening, people are able to sign up to be part of an Action Group.
Debra says “The Action Group plays a big part in helping turn conversations into actual results by continuing to connect a willing network of people passionate about transforming their community”
David Rutley MP has endorsed the ROC Conversation saying: “I’m really pleased to support this important event. Giving the long-standing tradition of community action in the area, there’s clear potential for this exciting initiative to make a real and measurable difference in the lives of local residents”For more details and to book a place; http://www.roc.uk.com/macclesfield
