[28 OCT 98] COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Residents Invited To Discuss Ways Forward

Residents of Foleshill are being invited to a meeting to discuss reducing unemployment and increasing training opportunities for local people.

The Foleshill Economic Regeneration Action Group is holding the meeting on Tuesday 3 November. The idea is to allow local residents to have their say on the best ways forward for introducing a programme aimed at addressing these two issues.

Coventry City Council, in partnership with local residents in Foleshill and other public agencies, has managed to secure funding from the government to run the programme.

Originally it was hoped it would be managed by the Ethnic Minority Alliance (EMA). However, Coventry City Council is concerned EMA will not be able to deliver the projects in time and with the agreed results. It is therefore looking for alternative ways of implementing the programme to ensure the money benefits the ethnic minority communities, as was orignally planned.

Local residents will be given the opportunity to have their say on the issues at Tuesday’s meeting, which will be attended by members of the Economic Regeneration Action Group and Demetrious Panton, Area Co-ordinator for Foleshill.

Demetrious said:

"We are concerned that the money should not be lost and should be used to benefit ethnic minority communities. It’s important that local residents have a chance to have their say on the best way forward."

The meeting will take place at Mercia Park, Lockhurst Lane, Foleshill. Discussions will start at 7pm.

For more information about the meeting and/or the proposals to reduce unemployment and improve local people’s access to training, please contact the Foleshill Are Co-ordination Office on 01203 688893
