You’re invited to attend our Autumn event including buffet lunch. Many businesses across the area are finding it difficult to recruit and retain sufficient numbers of staff – skilled and unskilled. We met in May 2014 (see Event Report) to discuss the issues and how we can work together to overcome them. We prioritised setting up a Shuttle Bus service and establishing a Youth Employment Programme; and agreed to come together and follow up in November 2014. We’ve made good progress!

  • The Shuttle Bus Service (BuS 11 SevernNet Flyer) should be operational in early 2015
  • The SevernNet Youth Employment Programme is up and running
  • Plans for a network of walking and cycle tracks across the area are well advanced
  • Employment and enterprise hubs in Avonmouth and Lawrence Weston are being designed (as part of our  £1.7m Coastal Communities Fund Bid – SevernNet Working).

Come and find out more and tell us what you need. Please register here.

The morning will also include:

  • our plans for Green Capital 2015
  • a ‘swap shop’ for resources you may have or want
  • a chance to join the SevernNet membership scheme
  • and networking opportunities with other local businesses and organisations

Outcome from the morning: Prioritised actions for 2015 that we will take forward together. You can also enjoy a fresh smoothie from the Juicy Blitz Youth Bar. Kings_Weston_House_crop Please register here.
