Devon Community REsource Gathering


St Boniface Centre (Opposite Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross) Crediton EX17 2AH  GoogleMap

Celebrating over 20 years supporting Devon Communities

Please come together to acknowledge the strength of Devon Communities and reaffirm the hugely positive impact that community groups and individuals across the county have made in saving wasted resources. It's also time to say a big thank you to Nicky Scott (DCCN Coordinator). We are planning a day of networking and open space workshops for us all to consider what has worked well and also discuss how a network can give maximum benefit to its members. Let's continue to help enable Devonians to compost, reuse and recycle more..."ansome"!

At the end of local authority funding; which way now?

  • An open space event with the agenda largely set by delegates

  • Networking opportunities throughout the day

  • Come with ideas and inspiration to discuss the future direction and make up of a joined up network, to become 'Devon Community REsource Network'?

  • What type of support does your group or project require now and going forward?

  • Lunch provided by Exeter Foodcycle
