Join the ROC Conversation in Tavistock
Tavistock is a great place to live, with plenty going on. But you may have ideas for how our community could be even better? Or some time to give but not sure how to use it? Would you welcome a chance to sit round a table with other residents, local voluntary groups and public bodies and talk about what we should celebrate, where the gaps are, and new possibilities from getting together? If so, put Thursday 28th June, 7pm to 9pm, Tavistock Town Hall in your diary.
Tavistock Area Christians Together has invited national charity ROC (Redeeming Our Communities) to host a community engagement event in the Town Hall. It's called a "ROC Conversation": over 150 have already been held around Britain. Councils, the police and West Devon CVS have welcomed the opportunity to be involved. ROC bring a vision for "people of goodwill working together for safer, kinder communities" and experience of running enjoyable, constructive consultations which influence local action. Debra Green OBE, founder of ROC, and Deputy Chief Constable Paul Netherton (deputy President of the Christian Police Association) plan to be at the Tavistock event.
The focus of the evening is Tavistock (Town Council area), respecting the autonomy of the surrounding villages. However even if you don't live in town, you may work, worship, volunteer or use services here. Please spread the word to others who might be interested (of all faiths and none). The event is free, and there are no age limits, but places are limited, so register in advance on www.roc.uk.com/tavistock (or phone 0161 393 4511) and you will get pre-event updates.
If the idea inspires, there are ways you can help. TACT is looking for volunteers (starting 6pm) to host tables, greet guests or serve refreshments. Donations or sponsorship, through TACT, towards the ROC team's costs would also be welcome. Contact the planning team, led by David Palmer, on or 01822 612100.
