Sus­tain­able change on Maes­geirchen es­tate

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

IN March of this year, BCT (Build­ing Com­mu­ni­ties Trust) and the In­vest Lo­cal Of­fi­cer Gwen Thirsk, held their first pub­lic meet­ing with the Maes­geirchen com­mu­nity to in­tro­duce a £1m, 10 year pro­gramme of Big Lot­tery fund­ing which will sup­port 13 com­mu­ni­ties across Wales. Fol­low­ing sub­se­quent meet­ings, the peo­ple of Maegeirche­n have voted to elect PMP (Part­ne­r­i­aeth Maes­geirchen Part­ner­ship) to de­liver the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion which is part of the ‘Get Go­ing’ phase of the pro­gramme.

When com­plete, and build­ing on the strengths, skills and tal­ents of in­di­vid­u­als, groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions in Maes­geirchen, the con­sul­ta­tion doc­u­ment will pro­vide the raw data to de­velop an ac­tion plan to de­liver a pro­gramme for sus­tain­able, lon­glast­ing change.

PMP have since em­ployed Fast Track to Skills Men­tor, Andy Davies, to carry out this very im­por­tant task. Andy pre­vi­ously served as Project Of­fi­cer with the ‘old’ Com­mu­ni­ties First Pro­gramme and has ex­cel­lent lo­cal knowl­edge and the re­spect of the Maes G res­i­dents.

The con­sul­ta­tion is now in its third week and re­cently, CCG ju­nior war­dens took part in ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to stim­u­late and en­cour­age ideas about their com­mu­nity through play and art. To have your say or for more in­for­ma­tion on the In­vest Lo­cal Pro­gramme and how to get in­volved, phone Andy Davies on 0778778357­5 or Email an­drew. [email protected] – PMP of­fice is lo­cated at 23 Llys Dy­lan, Maes­geirchen. Our doors are al­ways open and ket­tle on if you’d rather pop in for a chat and a brew!
