First Public Forum

What an amazingly successful first meeting for Critical Mass last night! The patio of Zest Bar and Bistro was a-buzz, with over 80 people in attendance. Considering the rather impromptu nature of our invitation, and the short notice, it was a remarkable turnout and a good indicator of the excitement people feel when they hear the details of this project. Particularly gratifying was the wide age range of those in attendance, highlighting the broad appeal of this project.

Thanks to all who attended, and also to those who could not attend, but who have expressed interest.

We plan to have similar open forums in the near future, in other locations in Northumberland.

What Critical Mass proposes is ambitious, but at the same time, is of a scale that we believe can be achieved. After last night, we know that we have the support of hearts and minds. But we'll need support of a more concrete nature as well, if this is to become a reality, and a catalyst for the cultural and economic vitality of Northumberland. Fundraising is now of prime importance, and we are off to a great start!
