The Legacy Away Day took place on Wednesday 14th August.
This was about:
The day was really productive and much of the conversation was lively and discussions were positive. The group focussed on the aims to:
- think about legacy and sustainability;
- consider whether there is a need for continued income to contribute to this legacy;
- explore the viability of any investment that may have potential to generate a continuing return;
- explore what organisational requirements might be needed to manage investment, secure and distribute income if applicable.
In discussing what legacy is and means for Farley Big Local the group decided on a number of tenants / core ingredients. They group agreed whether physical or virtual, the legacies of FBL must be a vehicle rather than an end in itself to:
- continue, strengthen and build for 10s of years
- impact all and be generational:
- improve and add value to the quality of life for people in Farley Hill:
- improve opportunity for better health, wealth and happiness:
- be sustainable and funded for generations:
- be community led & driven:
- influences and maximises benefit of opportunities through partners, developers, statutory services and government policy:
- help deliver the FBL vision.
Equally in discussing current plan ideas the group agreed actions to deliver legacy will:
- be deliverable by 2026;
- identify links, dependencies, opportunities for cross funding, identify additional funding available, identify partner roles and commitment and have a deadline by which decisions are made to ‘say no,
- be sustainable
The Legacy Away Day Facilitator will be writing up the discussions from the day and circulating them along with next steps in the first week of September for discussion at the partnership meeting on the 11th September 19.
