Putting our town centre stage: Greener Kirkcaldy Annual Gathering and AGM
28th October, 2020 : 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
Our Annual Gathering & AGM is moving online this year!
Continuing the conversation we started at our Kirkcaldy After Lockdown event in July, our gathering this year will focus on ‘towns’ – why they’re so important, and how we can put our town centre stage.
We’re thrilled to announce our key speaker for the evening will be Phil Prentice, Chief Officer of Scotland’s Town Partnership and National Programme Director of Scotland’s Improvement Districts. With 25 years’ economic development experience across the public and private sectors, Phil’s role as Chief Officer is to drive sustainable change through collaboration and partnership. Phil will talk about why towns are so important, resilience, recovery and renewal, why climate change is going to be a massive driver in town centre regeneration, how and why communities need to be more involved, and STP’s national town centre recovery campaign – Scotland Loves Local.
We’ll also be joined by Kirkcaldy’s own Cara Forrester, from the new Community Interest Company, Love Oor Lang Toun. Love Oor Lang Toun is a collective of local people who want to create a 21st century town centre people will be proud of and want to spend time in. Working in Kirkcaldy since March this year, they’ve already carried out a range of projects to support, develop and promote the town centre. Cara will talk about what they’ve done so far, and what they have planned coming up.
Our speakers will be followed by a short Q&A and discussion.
Chair of our Board, Christine May, will also give an update on Greener Kirkcaldy’s activities and achievements since April 2019 and outline some of our future plans, including those described in our recent Strategic Plan Review.
Our gathering will be followed by our AGM, which will include an election of the Greener Kirkcaldy Management Committee. View our AGM agenda and papers here.
