Community Open Meeting  

Crosspool Forum Open Meeting, Stephen Hill Church, Wednesday 27th October 7pm  

As things are slowly getting back to some sort of normality post-pandemic, the Crosspool Forum  are pleased to announce that by following present covid guidelines, it is relatively safe to start holding their Open Meetings once again.

With their usual venue (St Columba Church) being presently used for community vaccinations, the Crosspool Forum were kindly offered the nearby Stephen Hill Church , Crosspool, S10 5PL to hold their forthcoming Open Meeting, Wednesday 27th October 7pm. (Unfortunately the Stephen Hill Church is occupied by another group on Thursday, hence the reason for the change from the day previously advertised).

Local councillors and the police will be on hand to listen to your concerns on local issues, and a guest speaker to give a brief update on the vaccination programme at St Columba.

An open invitation and a warm welcome is extended to all residents, and people who empathise with Crosspool, to attend this and all Crosspool Forum Open Meetings.

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. You should stay cautious to help protect yourself and others.

For everyone’s continued safety, we encourage face coverings and hand sanitizing.

Cancellation Reminder

A Reminder that this evenings Crosspool Forum Open Meeting in St Columba’s Church, is Cancelled.

As we’re sure you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that it’s now, more than ever, vital to limit social contact and avoid gatherings.
For that reason and to help keep everyone safe, the difficult decision was made to cancel this evening’s Open Meeting.
While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand our reasoning for making this decision.

If restrictions allow, it’s very much hope that the next Open Meeting will go ahead in St Columba’s Church at 7pm, on Thursday 28th January, 2021.
