We’ve been open a bit over six months now. Time to take stock. And time, we hope, to put a bit more ‘community’ into ‘community interest company’. That’s where you come in.
On Weds Feb 12 we’re going to have a bit of a get together for anyone who wants to help make Roll for the Soul better. We just don’t have time to do everything that we’d like to do to improve things. Nor do we have all the answers about how we should do that. So maybe you can help.
We were overwhelmed by the response to our crowdfunding campaign back in 2012, and by people’s help when we were fitting out the premises last spring. We absolutely could not have made RftS happen without those contributions. So we’d like to keep that spirit alive and see if we can get more people more involved now that we’ve been up and running for a while.
We have a great space but we know we’re not using it to its full potential. What would you do with it? Who should we be working with? What events should we be running, or what events would you like to run? How do we reach out to more people, especially cycling clubs and groups, to make them feel that the space is theirs? And what other questions should we be asking?
If you’d like to help us shape RftS’ direction over the coming year and beyond, come down between 7pm and 9pm on Weds Feb 12 and get involved. We’ll provide some free nibbles and non-boozy drinks an we’ll see where the conversation goes. We can talk about events, marketing, improving the space. Whatever you think we could focus on, and especially those things where you feel you might be able to help.
If you fancy coming, drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we get some idea of numbers. And feel free to give us a heads up on what you might be thinking. And spread the word. Chapeau!
