The Community Business Revolution
By thebevypub, Nov 22 2017 02:31PM
Thanks to sponsorship from Power to Change The Bevy were able to put on a Community Business Revolution event at Exeter Street Hall
We were blown away by how many people came and were interested, especially those people who have just started, or are thinking about setting up their own community business. Curtis James, who people might have bumped into around the pub recently put on a fantastic presentation on his experiences over the last two months of researching the Bevy and Stoneham Bakehouse. He really powerfully captured the difference that can be made when people work together with a common goal in mind. If you couldn’t make it or want to see it again, then sign up to his newsletter to find out when it’ll be online- https://t.co/wjukCmtXfk
We then had a panel discussion chaired by Vidhya, the chief exec of Power to Change. We had Iain repping Exeter Street Wall, Warren, for the Bevy, Rebecca for Saltdean Lido and Simon for Stoneham Bakehouse also the brilliant Dave Boyle from the Community Share Co. They were all incredibly honest (and in Warren’s case sweary) about the challenges that they faced and their passion really shone through. One big takeaway was how much they had the potential to help each other. As Iain said “Why isn’t the Bevy buying its bread from Stoneham Bakehouse- it would be much better and probably cheaper!”
