Bountagu Priorities:

Community Engagement

Bountagu is a diverse community, and our focus is on integration, building community spirit and a sustainable future.

We will create more opportunities for people to come together to learn new skills, have fun, socialise, and feel connected to this area, and to continue the Big Local conversation locally. This includes making the most of our community spaces and encouraging more activities, programmes, and events to take place for the benefit of everyone.

We will support community-led activities and events, with a view to increasing engagement of residents and increased neighbourliness.
