A GROUP set up to tackle social issues in the south of Lincolnshire met up for a second time on Thursday.

The Social Issues in the Fens project gathered at the Long Sutton Market House.

Comprising of agencies working together to help those in need, it was started a year ago under the guidance of Father Jonathan Sibley.

Many subjects were discussed, including how existing project work could be strengthened by agencies working together and how to work in specific targeted communities.

Rev Sally Myers of the Lincoln Diocesan Theology School gave a talk about “Models of Community Action” and Janet Clark of Community Lincolnshire spoke about “Reflecting on change in the Community”.

It was also reported that since the inaugural meeting, 23 local churches have offered their facilities for initiating and developing social projects.

The group will meet again on October 4.
