Lesmahagow event wants your views
Community-led Action Plan
Date posted09 May 2019
Local people are inviting their fellow community members and anyone who works or delivers services in Lesmahagow, Brocketsbrae and Hawksland to have a say on a new Community-led Action Plan at a drop in event planned for Saturday 8th June between 10-2pm in the Fountain Community Centre. The plan will cover a 5-year period and represent the views, vision and aspirations for the village’s future.
Local people are leading the process of preparing the plans, supported by LEADER funded Community Action Lanarkshire (CAL), with a steering group made up of local organisations, schools and businesses carrying out a successful community wide survey in April and May. Following on from this survey, local people are holding an open event to find out a bit more about residents’ priorities to be included in their local Community Action Plan.
Ruth McElhinney, Development Officer with Community Action Lanarkshire, said,
“The purpose of the drop-in event is to discuss in more detail the things you said in the survey that are important to you. Please pop in to the open events and share why you think these things are important and how you think those who work, live or provide services can help make them happen in your village. We look forward to welcoming you, having a chat and making sure your views shape the final plan and the future of your community.”
Free refreshments and children’s activities, including access to the soft play area, will be provided, so feel free to bring the family.
