This weekend!
Our community Get Together

GBL Newsletter, November 2019


We are looking forward to welcoming you to our
Get Together at the weekend !

This meeting is all about neighbours getting together, finding out about what’s happening locally and working on making our area an even better place to live.
We will be starting the afternoon with a discussion, we will hear about local projects, and there will be opportunities to chat and have tea and cake. Kids are welcome too and can join our craft table.
  • Enjoy tea and cake and meet neighbours
  • Meet our Chair James and partnership members
  • Hear who will be on the partnership for the next year – if you are interested in being involved and would like to chat about this in advance please email Claire at
  • Join a discussion about how we can make our area an even better place to live
  • Hear from some of the organisations and residents that received grants from GBL this year, including Lymore Girls Football Club, Bread N Butter community cooking, Naomi from the gong bath project and Lesley from the gardening project.
  • You are welcome to join in at any time that suits you... see you there.
