To reach out to friends of Civic Revival who would like to participate in our sociable study tour of Bexhill but cannot attend in person for any reason, we have now set up a Zoom session on Friday 9 July, 3.00 – 3.45pm live from Bexhill Museum.
Peter Macfadyen, author of Flatpack Democracy 2.0 Power Tools for Reclaiming Local Politics, Peter Tyzack of Pilning & Severn Beach Parish Council, and other civic activists from around the country will discuss mechanisms to make connections and share experiences on how to get things done in communities.
