Forum Response to the latest call for a Parish CouncilRESPONSE-TO-Mr-MASTERTONS-CALL-FOR-A-PARISH-COUNCIL
Dear Jaywick Sands Revival,
I write to introduce myself and flag up why I am involved in Jaywick.
I’m a former Director and co-founder of Go4 Enterprises, a Community Interest Company, established and been running since 2010.
GO4 initiated two community cafes in Colchester, one in Holy Trinity Church (indoor market) and ran a gardening project for a number of years.
The company rents a garage in Jaywick for the purpose of renovating a 1950s LightShip Lifeboat kindly donated by Fellowship Afloat in Tollesbury, so that it can be worked on and utilised by the Jaywick community
During the summer last year a number of young people engaged in the preparation and repainting, but there is still some way to go before it can be used.
We also have some ideas about how to utilise one of Jaywicks impressive resources, the beach, and would like to encourage a range of activities open to community use, established, again with the interests of the local community at heart.
This might be something that Jaywick Sands Revival would have some interest in, and possibly consider taking on at some stage if appropriate, and would certainly be happy to assist and lend what experience we have in establishing such initiatives.
The task to repaint the boat and get it operational needs some further voluntary input so the purpose of this communication is to flag up the need for assistance in a number of areas, and we are looking for volunteers to engage with this.
If you are interested, or know of someone who might be, then please call Pete Hope, 07941019750 for more information.
