Stakeholders Event! (Thursday December 2nd 3-5pm)

Bridgend Inspiring Growth - Farmhouse Renovation Group
Stakeholders Event
- Thursday December 2nd 3-5pm
Downstairs at the Inch Community Centre

You are all cordially invited to this open public stakeholders event to give you the chance to voice your opinions on Bridgend Farmhouse and its potential renovation.

There will be the opportunity to see the current plans there are from Bridgend Inspiring Growth, hear presentations and suggestions from different partner organisations and groups, and be able to ask questions and work with others to give your views and ideas, and find ways you can get involved.

If you are interested in being one of the presenters or are an interested organisation that would like to bring information or a stall demonstrating the kinds of things you could see the site best used to develop then please get in touch.

This is Your chance to have a say, and if you are supportive of a community development for the farmhouse then please come along to show your support. A leaflet with more information is available on this blog with a questionnaire which we would very much appreciate if people could fill out and return.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

BIG Steering Group Meeting (Thursday 11th November)

Hello all,

Sorry for a lack of updates in the last few weeks. However there is lots of progress and advances that have been made. Most importantly of these was the fixing of the holes in the roof which happened last week at last! We can congratulate everyone who has constantly pushed for some work to be done on patching the holes up now to try to prevent further damage.

We have our next steering group meeting this Thursday (11th) at 7-8.30 at the Inch Community Centre. If you are able and interested in attending then please let us know. We hope to organising the next set of open meetings and events and what the next steps will be in relation to the farmhouse.

If you are unable to attend but would like to give your thoughts and feedback before then please give us an email at

See you soon!
