By Helen Kelly, Community Builder for The Willows


Our local Community Partnership is pleased to extend an exciting invite to residents of Watcombe, the Willows, Barton and Hele. Join us at Barton Baptist Church meeting rooms on Saturday 4 March from 12 noon – 3.00pm for our community event: TACKLING THE COST OF LIVING, TOGETHER.

Find out, help out and have fun! The cost of living is a concern for all. Come along and find out how we can support each other at a local level in our neighbourhood. We have inspiring speakers, plus amazing information and advice stalls with practical tips to take away. The entertainment will be fabulous too – with Torbay Lego Masters to entertain the kids and the Out of Tunas sea shanty singers!

We will be serving a free buffet, and entry to the raffle is free too (with some prizes donated by our generous local businesses).

Interaction and information on food cooking and growing; skills and time exchange; make and mend schemes; energy saving; volunteering and good neighbour programmes; warm spaces; local business offers; local community group opportunities…and much more! Let’s make positive change happen.

Tickets to the event are free but limited in number, so booking is essential. See costoflivingtq.eventbrite.com or call Helen: 07548 704876

The site is fully accessible. Children will need to be supervised at all times.
