Find out what’s happening in Ellacombe & Plainmoor, and get connected with your community

As Community Builders we bring people together to create a sense of belonging in their neighbourhoods.  We do this by listening and finding out what people like to do – Do you have an idea you’d like support with?  Do you have a skill you’d like to share in your community? We also link people into activities already happening locally.  Check out a sample of the ‘what’s on’ activities from different organisations in Ellacombe & Plainmoor:

We are in the process of getting a magazine team together for issue 4 of the quarterly Ellacombe & Plainmoor Community Magazine where you’ll be able to keep up to date with many more things happening locally.  If you like to be involved in some way, maybe contributing ideas, having a go at writing an article or joining the team of people helping with distribution on their roads, please do get in touch.

Finally, I was asked if I could give the Gilbert and Sullivan Society (Torbay) a mention with their concert ‘Spring is in the Air!’  on Sunday 3rd March at 3:30pm at the Livermead House Hotel, Torquay – tickets are £10 – please call 01803 323801 for more info.
