Event - 'Getting that Gold' 24 October 2012
This event was aimed at helping local councils more effectively target and secure grant funding for their local communities. Steven Lugg, Chief Executive of Hampshire Association of Local Councils, explained the different funding options that exist. The workshop was followed by a series of funding surgeries with Steven Lugg and Jennie Pell, the County Council’s Funding Officer, for parishes to seek detailed advice on specific plans. Twenty-nine local councils took part and the overall verdict was that it had been a "very useful and inspiring day".

Event - 'Working Together to Support Local Communities' 25 May 2012
The Economy, Transport and Environment Department (ETE) hosted an event for parish and town councils which considered the wide range of services provided by ETE and how local councils might help shape their design and delivery in the future.
Over 60 local councils attended and, whilst constraints that faced both local councils and the County Council were acknowledged, delegates and officers considered how they might work more effectively together to help build understanding, local capacity and improve the quality and responsiveness of services.
