Assets within communities.....can avoid cost etc. of bringing in outside help; would also foster self-relaince, networking etc....
I forgot to say that Parish & Town Councils exist in many URBAN (e.g. Birmingham) & rural areas of England.......
Hi David -yes MANY parish & town councils already fund community development workers and a range of community projects...e.g. Calne in Wilts & Sutton in Cambs.
Agree with the 'show & tell' idea.....communities who have the knowledge/skills showing those at an earlier stage in a project what to do; neat & simple idea
Nice idea re Trip Adviser rankings; only concern I have = that not everyone has a computer.....
