We were joined by guest speakers from Gwennap Parish Council, Bude Community Orchard, and Wild Roseland who gave some wonderfully inspiring talks about what they have been doing at a local level.

Thanks to everyone who attended and made it such a positive and enthusiastic session. Thanks also to our colleagues Mark O’Brien and Sally Saunders in the Strategy, Localism and Communications Service who helped organise the event.
