Fifth Annual Local Conversation

8th November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

This annual event is the opportunity for local people to come along, have their say and share how our communities are working together to make a difference. Workshop sessions are planned so we may hear more about how connecting people helps local residents in East Ayrshire keep active and healthy. In addition, many of our partners will have stalls offering advice and information and a friendly welcome.

We would encourage you as a local resident, or member of a community group, to join us on the day and bring a friend with you! Please feel free to share this invite with friends or colleagues you think may be interested in attending. Employees are also welcome to attend should they be able, and are encouraged to invite a local resident along too. The programme for the day is listed below.

Please use the link below to complete your registration by 30 October 2019.

If you need any assistance please email: HSCPAdmin@east-ayrshire.gov.uk or you can call Aileen Anderson or Lorna Donnelly on 01563 554472 and 554475

We look forward to seeing you on the day.
