Event description

Description

There are lots and lots of people using their time to make a positive difference to others in our communities across Powys. Each trying out some really interesting ideas or projects, from small and simple to big and bold, but all bringing people together and making stuff happen.

It can be hard to keep it up sometimes. Funding is tight and difficult to get hold of, it feels like there's never enough people to help, support from your community can be a slow burner and of course you'd like a homelife sometimes! But help is out there in the form of others doing a similar thing where they live - and so this is the event for you.

This free event is open to anyone who loves where they live and is doing/wants to do something to keep it that way for everyone. It could be that you run a community project of any kind, give up your time to volunteer, do litter picks, put on community events or are an all-round good egg. We'll come together to share our experiences, swap ideas and tips, talk about the highlights and the challenges of what we do, share skills - and go away feeling inspired, with practical steps to take forward, and much better connected to others doing similar things just down the road.

We've picked Crickhowell as our place to meet this time, winners of the Great British High Street Award just a few months ago! All of the shops and businesses on Crickhowell High Street are either family or independently run, including the magnificent community owned 'The Corn Exchange' containing flats and businesses. The town has it's own newsletter ('Community Times') and you tube channel, a very successful Totally Locally campaign as well as a zero waste shop, this will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about how the townsfolk have come together to make Crickhowell a great place to live. We'll be hearing about it's story from Dean Christy, the manager of The Corn Exchange and one of the instrumental people behind the UK High Street award. We'll learn from him how and why community spirit in Crickhowell is alive and take a walkabout together to explore the key ingredients that make it tick.

Lunch and refreshments are included.
