In November, Kettle’s Yard was delighted to welcome our first members to an initial meeting of a pilot community panel for the organisation.
Kettle’s Yard has been a valuable asset to the local community since opening its doors in 1957 with a practice of delivering inspiring and creative projects and programmes ever since.
The community panel will enable Kettle’s Yard to deepen our relationships and broaden our impact, ensuring our resources are even more meaningful for our communities.
We are delighted to introduce our seven community panel members to you, with further updates to come throughout 2024:
Carol Brown-Leonardi ~ Cllr Jenny Gawthrope-Wood ~ Eddie Imhagwe ~ Bryan Johnson ~ Abi Moore ~ Jade Pollard-Crowe ~ Alan Soer
About the Community Panel
Through their involvement, the Kettle’s Yard community panel members will:
- Advise Kettle’s Yard to effect positive change.
- Be an ambassador for their community.
- Get to know Kettle’s Yard and discover what goes on behind the scenes.
- Represent and reflect the members of all communities living or working in Cambridge.
- Discuss significant community issues and activities.
In the initial Community Panel meeting, as well as getting to know each other, the panel enjoyed an introduction to Kettle’s Yard and its history from Director, Andrew Nairne, before spending some time envisioning where they would like the community panel to be at the end of its pilot year.
