Had the first regular Porty Central meeting on Zoom last night for a good few weeks – a bit like the kids and teachers returning to school.
Almost all the group reconvened (apologies received from those unable to make it), metaphorical uniforms a bit too big, we were excited and anxious about the year ahead. The new Chair, Jayne had put in a huge amount of effort on agenda and also thinking about group dynamics. We had some healthy reflection about ways of working and took some proper decisions after scheduled discussions. Ah, living the meetings dream. Joking aside, good meetings are no laughing matter as the ‘Jackie Weaver’ clip revealed (she’s a hero of mine). Good meetings take work from all and we were back on form last night- not perfect but back as we have been, should and can be. Our Secretary Geoff has already got the minutes out. I’ve not read them but will before I sleep tonight.
Before I sleep tonight it is the first meeting to start the Action Porty ‘Porty 2025‘ community consultations.
See you there? If not don’t worry. There is the Oct session and I’m going to push for some Zoom sessions too.
