So, what can we do?
It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of such a huge task, but the choices we make every day with our time, energy and money are building our futures. We are lucky enough to have a choice; a window of opportunity which will not be afforded to those who come after us, so we owe it to them to act now.
Some of the ground work was already done during the sessions with KSB. Some of the great things that are already happening in and around our town were shared. Views and ideas from the wider public on what our next steps should be were discussed. But, we don’t want this to be the voice of a select few. These changes will affect everyone, so everyone should have a voice. As a starting point, we collated some of the most popular ideas into five interest-themed Future Kirrie action plans. These are being led by various members of the community and evolve a little more each month. We are always looking for new people to take actions and we love to hear new ideas, so we want to hear from YOU about how you think we should tackle this, together.
