What do you want to work on?
I want young and old to interact and revive interest in our community's industrial heritage

Why is it important to you?
Because at present I tend to be a lone voice. I want us to be proud of our rich industrial heritage and to preserve it for future generations.

What action will you take with whom?
I am open to offers! Also happy to engage with schools.

This is what I said at the launch event.

Updated at 29th May event

What has been happening and what I have learned

There is a growing interest in Bath's industrial past. The links between Bath and the Titanic are extremely important

My passions/ enthusiasms/ talents/ expertise/ knowledge

Vintage transport/ industrial history/ travel/ music/ animals. (I am good at organising and scrounging!)

What I want to work on

Educating people regarding Bath's industrial past and creating a Museum of Bath to accomodate major exhibits.

Why it is important to me

Because once it's gone it's gone forever - and we can learn from the past. For instance, saving part of the Cadbury Complex for future generations.

Action I will take with whom

Media coverage and public exhibitions

How I will know I am making a difference I want to make

Increasing attendance at heritage days and talks
