Rather than start our own off line events – Love Barnet is joining forces with a well established community connector Link4Growth. We have our own district – Link4Growth SE Herts – hosted by our own We Get Digital‘s Mike and Carol. Check out the Barnet page also on Google+ and follow for more news and views.
In Link4Growth’s own words:
Communities are all around us, schools, churches, scouts, football teams, ex work colleagues. We love communities, we are amongst people with whom we share something in common and they create a strong bond and a sense of belonging.
In a community we have self worth and we are valued. We can benefit from our fellow members who share their experience and knowledge with us openly. We also ‘have the right’ as a member to contribute and give to other community participants in whatever way we are able.
Community is important to us and if we think briefly about our own lives we will see just how many communities we belong to. We both give and receive in community, we give our time, energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise to help others and to improve the community, and in return we receive assistance from others, self worth, respect, support, encouragement, social interaction, and the all important sense of belonging.
The local communities that we live and work, will become even more important as fuel costs escalate and technology continues the trend in remote and flexible working arrangements. At the economic heart of any community is business. Link4Growth believes that focussing on bringing together businesses of all types in the local community will lead on to a vibrant and successful business hub and the engagement of the whole community which improves things for everyone
Link4Growth is all about community, giving and receiving, fairness in business, and working together so that we can all lead more rewarding and fruitful lives…
We are joining in with two monthly events
Link4Coffee on the last Friday of the month. This is a casual drop in at The Arkley, Barnet from 10am for a couple of hours (but you don’t have to stay for 2 hours… stay as little or as long as you like!). Just please head over to the Link4Growth Website, click on the event you want to join, and let us know on eventbrite that you are coming so we just roughly know the numbers. No commitment to anything just courtesy.
Link4Drinks on the first Tuesday of every month. This is also a casual and chilled drop in at Ye Olde Mitre Inn, Barnet – generously hosted by Gary Murphy ye olde owner of The Mitre … these kick off around 6-6.30pm. Just please head over to the Link4Growth Website, click on the event you want to join, and let us know on eventbrite that you are coming so we just roughly know the numbers. No commitment to anything just courtesy.
