The idea is to persuade Nottingham peeps "...to get more involved with the work of the council." Good idea.
Of course, you could satisfy yourself with the uberspun, sanitised idea of the 'work of the council' presented to you by this event.
Alternatively (or in addition) you could drop in back here regularly to see the sort of thing that really goes on.
Update - Couldn't resist a bit of guerrilla marketing
Further update - only put this up today and already it's 4th and 5th on page 1 on Google search for 'Local Democracy Week Nottingham'.
