It was really great to reconnect after the long break, recovering after October, then the Election and then Christmas. To use a really inappropriate metaphor, I think some or even most of us felt some nervousness about whether the the car would actually start on a wet January evening. But it did! Wonderful food, wonderful crowd and there it was again, that XR family, new faces and familiar ones.
For those who weren’t there, we split into groups to discuss plans for 2020. Here are the beautifully legible sheets – thank you scribes. Here are the results of that:
In the reporting back, each group was asked to summarise key ideas which can be further mulled over next week:
- Car free day, with or without SDC cooperation
- Outreach to schools
- SNJ – tell the truth action on the media
- Setting up an XR Union A417 widening resistance campaign
Stroud’s own HS And two which I heard over tea, which didn’t get a call out
- Street stall
- XR blitz /tidy-up group
Take a look at the pages and bring your thoughts to next week’s meeting which will be at the Convent pending our finding a new, easier-access venue.
