Oadby & Wigston Community Roadshow
VAL is working in partnership with local groups to organise a Networking Session for Oadby & Wigston groups, followed by Community Roadshow
About this event
VAL has formed a partnership with Oadby & Wigston Borough Council, Active Oadby and Wigston, Helping Hands Community Trust and Leicestershire County Council to host a face to face Community Roadshow Event on Wednesday 8th June at the King’s Centre in Wigston.
We would like to invite your organisation to become part of this event and to come along on the day to take part in the planned activities.
VAL and Leicestershire County Council have worked on similar events in other areas in the past, which have proven extremely valuable for local organisations, both in terms of collaborating with other organisations, but also in terms of promoting services and volunteering opportunities to the public.
Plan for the day
The day will have 2 sections, with the first part being a networking session for local groups to come together to consider local assets and how we can all work together to support each other and the local community, with the second part being a market place roadshow event open to public to come to find out about local services, volunteering and how they can get involved in the community.
11am – 1pm: Asset Based Community Development Session for Local Groups
1pm – 3pm: Lunch & Set up for Market Place session (Groups)
3pm– 6.30pm: Market Place (Hosted by Groups, open to the Public)
There is no parking available at the venue, but there are plenty of public car parks around. The closest is the Paddock Street car park; for more information, click here: https://www.oadby-wigston.gov.uk/pages/car_parks
