Our community organisers find that food is a great way of bringing people together! Maybe you could do an event linked to valentines or another festive time . Make it a celebration not a ‘meeting’ and people are more likely to come. Once you’ve got people there, have a team of people primed and ready to hold 121 conversations with people to try and find out what they care about. You’re looking for people who are prepared to do something – it might be put some money in, hold a meeting in their home or village, deliver newsletters or flyers etc. gradually you’ll build a bigger team which will turn into a network. Of course, that assumes that enough people agree with you about the need to save the pub and shop. how much market research have you done so far?
