The think tank has been organised by the tourism and town centre management team.

Councillor Richard Hobbs, city mayor, will introduce everybody to the event while Sgt Phil Priestley follows with an update and a question and answer session on neighbourhood policing in the district

Tracey Harding, tourism manager for East Cambs District Council, will follow with a talk about tourism in Ely.

The event concludes with a round the table discussion on how to improve city centre and tourism when the public will have a chance to give feedback.
