Councillor Paul Ashdown
The Community Partnership has supported a new community transport service to help people living in the villages north of Lowestoft to get out and about more easily.
Lowestoft & Northern Parishes held a CP event in March for members and community invitees to network with local voluntary and statutory agencies to find out what is happening in our area. We had twenty-two stalls and seventy-seven people in attendance. From this event we also had fifteen pledges from those that attended, an example of pledges included: to become a CP member, to advertise and support our CP, and to promote and empower our community.
Historic England as part of their Benjamin Brittain as a Boy Project is funding a virtual walk where he used to go as a boy and where his statue will be place in Lowestoft, (currently only a miniature is available whilst statue is being commissioned). Please go to The Lowestoft Mile website to view our four current virtual walks.
As part of our healthy eating priority, we have a current project of garden pallet boxes which are being offered to schools for children to learn how to grow vegetables and fruits, and hopefully taste their own produce! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your school wishes to have free garden pallet boxes with soil and seeds.
