Bold Vision friends’ gathering 7pm Nov 26

BV orgBold Vision belongs to all of us… so we thought it was time you had more of a say.  We hope you can join us for our first friends’ gathering!

Please join us 7pm, Nov 26 at the Hill Station
It’s about a year since we got together for the last conversation about Bold Vision (see the feedback here) and we would love you to join us to take the conversation further.
This will be more of a family affair. We will give everyone a drink when they arrive and there will be a bar available. But really this is a working session – the first of its kind but something we will hold regularly from now on.
We hope to cover:
  • A quick review of Bold Vision: its structure, role and projects
  • The challenges and opportunities we are facing
  • Your ideas for WHAT we should be doing, HOW we should be doing it and the resources we will need

What happened during the last year?

As you may well be aware already, the last year has seen some changes for Bold Vision.

At the Hill Station, we saw the departure of Stephen from the business – we really appreciate his huge contribution and energy over the last couple of years. And now Jacqui is doing a great job of putting her own stamp on the place with lots of events and a cosy new look.

Grow Wild – which Bold Vision has always been part of – is now under the Bold Vision umbrella and still carrying on with smaller projects even after the end of the Big Lottery grant.

The Refugee Camp Twinning project has been in play for about six months since our successful crowdfunding earlier in the year and we have some exciting possibilities developing to create real and human links between our community and theirs.

New Cross Learning continues to go from strength to strength. It looks better thanks to the makeover at the beginning of the year, and activities are flourishing. Thanks largely to community run libraries and the adaptability and openmindedness of NXL and others like it, Lewisham is one of the only LAs in the country with increasing library usage.

On the Bold Vision management team we have seen the departure of Susan and Patricio – who have been there from the start and made a huge contribution over the years and Deborah who has been involved during her London seasons. Meanwhile we have welcomed great new input from Anshu and increased involvement from David. Clare has done a great job this year of getting the accounts clear across all the projects.

We are always keen to get new ideas and new people involved so please shout if you are interested. All our meetings are open to everybody and published on the website

Best wishes

The Bold Vision Team
