MORE than 70 people representing businesses, residents, community groups and the public sector gathered in Ely's Cathedral Centre in October to share in the achievements of the city's market town partnership - Ely Perspective.
The Perspective's activities cover a broad range of activities, from planned enhancements to Ely's Steeple Row area, fortnightly business breakfast meetings in the Lamb Hotel to working with others to improve and enhance the riverside area. The most recent initiative was to encourage less use of plastic carrier bags throughout the city.
Among those who attended were several members of the Chamber of Trade from neighbouring Downham Market with who stronger links will hopefully result.
Philip Eden, chairman of the Perspective, said "We wanted to give the community an additional opportunity to realise just how many different organisations are involved with the Perspective's work and encourage others to join us and help shape the future."
