ou should by now have received the meeting invitation (with Zoom link) for the next PAP Steering Group on Weds 10th March, starting at 10am. Although I seem to have listed 5 things. it will be a one item agenda – AstleyFest 2021. How can we spend the rest of the ACE grant on something that’s innovative, Covid-proof and with sufficient showmanship to rock even our Phil’s socks!

This meeting will be an ideas generating session so please try to join us (and if you can’t, let’s have your thoughts anyway).
