In September - October 2019 we hosted two public consultation events in Redhill and Guildford. The events provided an opportunity for current users of the Surrey Performing Arts Library to share their thoughts on a number of decisions relating to the NewSPAL service.
Both events were led by Mark Welling Chair of NewSPAL, Barbara Eiffler NewSPAL Trustee (and CEO of Making Music) and Victoria Taylor Transition Project Manager. Both events were well attended, with approx 20 attendees at each. We found there to be a good balance of drama groups, music groups and individual users attending as well as a number of current volunteers supporting the re-cataloguing of the music and drama sets.
Each event began with a short update from NewSPAL Trustees, below for a digested version:
