Council of reference – that sounds serious, doesn’t it? We weren’t sure what to call it, but basically this is a group of people representing a wide variety of communities and interests in High Town. They are helping to advise on the project, ask difficult questions, and lend their expertise. Many of them live within a couple of minutes walk of the park.
We had our first meeting in early 2019 at St Matthew’s church, just up the road.
The council will help us to ensure that the cafe serves all of High Town, makes everybody feel welcome, and will hold us accountable as a Community Interest Company.
