Forum

In 2017, the Amenity Forum will once again be holding a series of free Updating Events at locations across the UK. These events are half day in length and focus on short presentations covering current topics delivered by specialists in these areas. Apart from events in each main region of England, there will also be ones in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. They are being held in the period late January to early April.

If you are interested in attending, or know others who might be, you are advised to register your interest now by emailing Alan Spedding at Alan.Spedding@amenityforum.net He can acknowledge your interest and provide the further information required as and when available. Wherever you live in the UK, there should be an event held not far from you. So whatever your role or interest, register now for these popular free information events. If you are on the Amenity Register, they also carry CPD points.

The overall emphasis for 2017 is on putting together an integrated programme for effective weed, pest and disease management. The events also provide opportunity to discuss new developments and challenges and network with other professionals. So whatever your interest in the topic, these will be valuable events.

At each event an update will also be provided on the Forum campaign to increase awareness of the importance of weed, pest and disease management and how it impacts upon every UK citizen, keeping Britain moving. For access to some of the materials, access the Forum website and click on ‘Get Moving’

The Forum is very grateful to member organisations who host and help resource the events and in effect help make them possible. The dates and locations currently fixed are as follows:

  • Lincolnshire 1st February
  • Wales 23rd February
  • Derbyshire 28th February 
  • Yorkshire 2nd March 
  • London 7th March
  • Northern Ireland 9th March
  • Cheshire 14th March 
  • Essex 23rd March
  • Surrey 28th March 
  • Devon 4th April

Dates to be announced very soon will be held in Durham, Cambridgeshire and Scotland.

Some comments from attendees in 2016 included ‘’the event was very informal but extremely informative. I enjoyed the opportunity of meeting fellow professionals and listening to experts present topical issues’’

‘’I attended with a number of fellow greenkeepers and found the content extremely relevant to the job we do. It was also really valuable to hear about issues as they impact on the amenity sector as a whole’’
