Steps to strengthen community spirit and provide information and advice to residents around the Cotswolds will be launched this summer with the first of several community days.

Bourton on the Water will host the first Community Day of Action on Friday June 6th at the Lamberts Field, Rye Close and Melville areas, boasting stalls and sessions offering handy hints to residents on issues such as crime reduction, waste and recycling, activities for young and old, tourism and clubs and societies operating in the area.

The event, which runs from 1pm-7pm, will have a stall hosted by the RSPCA, a circus skills workshop and there will also be practical advice given on housing and Council Tax.  There will also be contact details for important local voluntary organisations and support groups such as the drugs advice line FRANK, Crimestoppers and racial equality groups.

It is being held in partnership with Gloucestershire Police, Village Agents, People for You, and Fosseway Living, as well as the Safer Cotswolds group and Gloucestershire County Council.

Sally Jennings, Cotswold District Council’s Anti Social Behaviour Officer, said:  “These sessions are all about engaging with local residents and getting as many people involved in the wellbeing of the community.  It is a very positive move, and we will be offering advice and information about a whole range of issues, including benefits, safety in and out of the home and opportunities for play.  It will also be a good chance for local groups to promote what they do.”

Other Community Days of Action are currently in the pipeline.  Dates and venues will be announced at a later date.
