Thoughts and ideas ahead of the BPCCRA monthly. 14th October 7.30pm. St Aldhelms

Dear Members,

October Meeting

We’re happy to confirm that the October meeting will be going ahead as per schedule, that’s the second Wednesday of the month, 14th October. The meeting will start at 7.30 pm, and coffee and tea will be served from 7.15 onwards.

The minutes of the last meeting are available through the web site https://www.pinesandchines.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/BPCCRA-Minutes-8September2021.pdf


The Association is busy organising the AGM which will be held on Saturday 11th December. It’s an important landmark for us all. It will be the first general meeting since the pandemic, and people are looking forward to it. But we still have to be sensible, as we are with our regular monthly meetings. So remember to keep a safe distance from others and be careful.

It will be a Christmas AGM, so we can have a bit of a party when we have dealt with the business, and why not? So the Association will be putting on an excellent buffet plus red and white wine and soft drinks and a particular Christmas favourite, mulled wine. Perhaps the odd mince pie as well.

Our President, John Sprackling, wants to invite a senior BCP person to talk about all the exciting investment plans unveiled for the conurbation. At this point, we need solid dynamic leadership to create the right environment for businesses to prosper in technology and manufacturing, and not forgetting the all-important tourism and hospitality sector. We should set ourselves high standards of achievement in every industry, including the public sector providing the services that bring it all together.

Tourism and the locals

The boom in staycation has brought thousands of new visitors to Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole. They have flocked to “The Coast with the Most”, and they like what they find when they get here. We know that feeling because we live here; it is our home, and residents who are not in the tourist industry need a voice too.

We don’t have a fixed agenda as yet, but we do have plenty to talk through. So don’t forget the next monthly meeting set for next Wednesday.

Kindest regards,

From the BPCCRA Executive Committee
