Last year the Clapton Panel training weekend was at Maldon in Essex.

Twelve panel members representing some 8 TRAs took the opportunity of training offered at a weekend away.
The training was given by Lockhart Murdoch, a consultant who started with Hackney Homes as an estate manager, now with huge experience of housing and the matters and issues involved, particularly in Hackney.

The training had three aspects:

1. personal development: confidence  building, working in an organization.

2. skills: how to hold a debate, chair a meeting etc and

3. Knowlege aquisition: learning about a particular subject

in this case the the history, current status and possible future of the ALMO.

We also looked at youth service cuts, youth provision and the part the panel could play in encouraging TRAs to acces grants in cooperation with one of the 130 plus organizations offering youth services of one kind or another, like Skyway or the Youth Parliament.

The vehicle we chose to debate was the recent riots.

Beloware a few of the pub, the Blue Boar. Maldon and the river

All in all it was a very instructive and educational weekend, set in a lovely spot.

I recommend it to all current and future panel members.
