Deal With It had its Annual General HooHa (like a AGM but with considerable more cake) at the Landmark Cafe on Saturday 31st January 2015.
In all we had about a record 35 attending the event which is a bit of a record.
There was great vibe - we managed to generate a lot of energy, ideas and raw enthusiasm for the coming year.
We used an exhibition of photos of some of the things we had done in 2014 which were a great talking point for people involved on those events but also a great way to explain what a transition group does to the public or people just wanting to find out a little more.
The formal business was done at a canter - Steve Wakeford, Vicky Nicholls and Jane Stubbington were thanked for their work in 2014 and re-appointed as Coordinator, Secretary and Treasurer respectively.
We had a number of new volunteers who wanted to get involved in the Organising Group and we will publish more on that after the first meeting on the 21st Feb.
The 'Postcard to Deal' worked well when we were engaging with people - so we will continue to use on our events. Thanks to Landmark, Golf Road Centres and Sea Cafe and Platform 1 cafe for hosting.
Vicky is collating all the ideas from the postcards for discussion at next organising group meeting.
