CAG Devon Skillshare 2020 – POSTPONED UNTIL AUTUMN @ Boniface Centre
Mar 21 all-day

In response to the spread of Coronavirus we have taken the decision to postpone the Skillshare event scheduled for this Saturday 21 March. While of course it is disappointing for us not to be able to get together at this time to share our skills, knowledge, challenges, successes and ideas, we’re sure you understand that in the present circumstances, it’s more important for us to ensure the wellbeing of our groups and our communities.  

We will aim to reschedule the Skillshare event to the autumn.  In the meantime, while we may not be able to meet up in person, we will certainly be continuing to support all our CAG groups over the coming months. We are actively exploring other ways that groups can continue to support and share ideas with each other, as well as ways in which we can carry on the great work in our communities, despite the coming challenges. If you have any suggestions for things we could do, please do share them with us! 

You can follow us on:

Mid Devon groups – Clare Groom (CAG Devon project officer): clare.groom@resourcefutures.co.uk 

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or need support with anything. 

We wish you all the very best in these challenging times! 

Helen, Clare and Kerry 

 

 

CAG Devon’s annual get-together – a chance to share ideas, be inspired, learn, network and plan to create more sustainable communities.

Skillshare flier final

About this Event
Come together with CAG Devon groups, other community groups and individuals taking action for a more sustainable world. Inspire and be inspired, swap ideas, take part in hands-on workshops sessions, receive (and offer) expert advice, celebrate yours and the Network’s achievements, plan your next steps. Meet, network, learn, reflect, connect and laugh.

We will have a range of exciting and informative workshops in the morning and afternoon, and plenty of time to network and plot! We are still finalising the workshops and will invite you to sign up to them nearer the day.

There will be a World Café type session at the end of the day, so any topics not covered in the workshops can be explored and discussed in that session – you choose and shape that, so come with your ideas.

There will be a delicious lunch made from surplus food (by some of our workshop participants) and plenty of time to eat and talk together – the important things!
The event is FREE. We are asking for a suggested donation of £5 on the day towards lunch and refreshments.

Places are limited so if you book a place, but nearer the time cannot attend, please let us know so that we can offer your place to someone else.

The Boniface Centre is in Crediton, adjacent to the Parish Church. There is free parking for 50 cars (please car share wherever possible). There are bus and train links to Crediton. The Boniface Centre is fully accessible.

Book your place at the SkillsShare
