Around 70 people crowded around tables in Brownsword Hall on 15th March to kick start The BIg Poundbury Conversation, after the Love Poundbury AGM.
Surrounded by post-it notes, local residents were invited to discuss together what they liked about living or working here, and what might be improved.
This is the start of a series of friendly and sociable conversations during the course of spring and summer 2023. The project is sponsored by Love Poundbury, who are keen to find ways to include all sectors of the diverse Poundbury community, especially those who might sometimes be – or feel – left out. Findings will be collated and reported on during the Autumn.
It’s early days, but the project group have summarised some of the early emerging themes here. They are looking for volunteers to help with events, communications, surveys and more -contact them here to find out more.
