Ropewalks Residents’ Association: Chair confirmed!

Posted By Peter / May, 8, 2012

Dear residents and friends,

During our regular ‘Forum’ (held on 13th April @ Fact; key outcomes to follow on here shortly), our interim Chair Peter Schriewersmann (Ropewalks Resident) was unanimously voted as the permanent Chair for another 12 months. Part of our discussion was the setting of priorities for our Residents’ Association for the coming 12 months.

Please find our meeting minutes here, and our Association’s Vision here.

Thanks to everyone who voluntarily supported the work of our group over the last few months and years – and let’s crack on making further changes, making the Ropewalks an even better place to live, work and play in the future!

Best regards,
The Ropewalks Residents’ Association

Invitation: Street Drinking Webcast @ FACT

Posted By Peter / May, 7, 2012

Dear friends and fellow Ropewalks Residents,

You are invited to a webcast (live internet tv-style discussion show) at FACT on Thursday 17 May to discuss street drinking in Liverpool. This event will bring together a variety of people with an interest in the issue.

Are you affected by street drinking? Do you have a direct personal experience? Are you a local business? A health and welfare professional? Do you work in specialist alcohol services?

Roger Philips (BBC Radio Merseyside presenter and Ambassador for Decade of Health and Wellbeing) will chair the discussion and ask – do communities have strengths and resources which can generate new strategies to tackle street drinking?

The webcast will be live on the internet and the content recorded as part of research being undertaken by University of Central Lancashire. The research poises the question whether community ‘ownership’ of the issue and community led solutions are possible, what might they look like and how they might improve or add to specialist services? What role can digital media (such as webcasts) play in raising awareness and airing different views?

Schedule

11.30am – 12.30pm – Discussion on street drinking related to binge drinking culture
12.30 – 13.30 – lunch
1.30pm – 2.30pm – Discussion on street drinking related to homeless and dependent street drinkers

Places are limited so please register your interest for one or both of the discussions by emailing us on peter@ropewalksresidents.co.uk

Thank you!
The Ropewalks Residents’ Association
