On Wednesday 27 April Bramley Elderly Action members will participate in a ‘Great Debate’ regarding the future of Bramley.
This discussion is also open to anyone aged 60+ in the area who would like to reflect on the changes to Bramley Town Street in the 1970s, to consider the effect this had on the community and to talk about Bramley Centre as it was and is now. You do not have to be a member of Bramley Elderly Action to attend.
We encourage the attendance of people who strongly believe that Bramley Town Street should have been left standing, but perhaps you saw benefits from the changes that took place?
We’d love for you to join us and to listen to what you have to say if this is the case. When these changes were made, what was lost? What remains? What could we revive and how? These are all questions that we will discuss and debate.
The debate will be guided by BEA facilitator Joanne Hartley and West Leeds Dispatch editor John Baron. It will be recorded and summarised in a West Leeds Dispatch article.
We will also be taking suggestions for other subjects and issues to discuss at future ‘Great Debate’ events.
This is a chance to have your say and influence policy and decision making.
If there’s something that you’d like this group of senior thinkers to consider and discuss, please contact us to let us know. This is an opportunity to harness the power of the wisdom, insight and lived experience of our community of people aged 60+.
The debate runs at Wednesday 27th April, 1.30pm to 3.30pm at Bramley Community Centre. Light refreshments will be served. Booking is not essential, but let us know you’re coming by phoning 0113 236 1644 so we have an idea of numbers.
