Bridgend Farmhouse; From vision to action

To all members and affiliates,

You may have thought things had gone a little quiet with developments around the Bridgend Farmhouse renovation project, but we have been working away developing the suggestions put forward, planning a local living memory project, and organising a community action workshop on what we can do next and who can do it. We are still in need of time, expertise, energy and assistance though, so please get in touch if you can help in ANY way. We have many suggestions if you are wondering what would be useful.

We are now very glad to be able to invite you to attend this workshop though to look at what are the next stages and how we get there. Please see here for more details.

Bridgend Farmhouse: From Vision to Action

Thursday March 15th 6-8.30pm

Inch Community Centre, Bottom floor, Inch House,

225 Gilmerton Road, EH16 5UF (in Inch Park)

Bridgend Inspiring Growth (BIG) is a small voluntary group who have come together to work towards the renovation of the farmhouse for community benefit and ownership

Over the past year, BIG has consulted the local community, users of the allotments, and potential partner organisations to identify what local needs the farmhouse project could and should meet. We are now looking at ways to go forward with those and turn them into a reality.

Purpose of this event

This workshop is for local people to come together to review the information gathered and agree on:

1. The local priorities (strategic aims) that the farmhouse project will meet

2. Key activities (operational objectives) that will turn these aims into reality

3. A clear work programme that sets out the main steps required to achieve progress towards these objectives over the next year

Who should attend?

This event is for anyone in the local and wider community who is passionate about making the farmhouse a working resource for the local area and is able to commit at least some time to help make this happen (over whatever period of time you can manage).

All other details are on the poster, but if you have any additional requirements or assistance needed to attend, or have any further questions beforehand please let us know.

Please RSVP to to indicate if you may be attending.
