Emma Williamson and Paula Ratcliffe, Well Whitehaven Officers

RESIDENTS of the Mirehouse and Corkickle communities are invited to share their thoughts on the things that matter to them.

Well Whitehaven, a project aimed to improve the lives of those living in the communities, is asking residents what they would like to see in their area.

Residents are asked to attend a World Café event to share their ideas on Thursday, August 15 at St Benedict’s Rugby Union Club, Newlands Avenue, Mirehouse, from 10am until 12 noon. Free refreshments will be provided.

Emma Williamson, Well Whitehaven Officer, said: “It is really important that community’s residents have a say in the decision, services and projects that are delivered in their area.

“If they have been a part of the decision-making, they are more likely to feel a sense of ownership for the assets within their community.

“The World Café event promotes honest discussion and will help to generate ideas and solutions on challenging issues.

“It will encourage people to talk in small groups about the things that are important to your community.

“There is no expert – everyone’s experience and opinions matter. This will be a lively gathering, full of interesting conversations, and plenty of food for thought.

“We need residents support to be able to continue to work together to create a more vibrant, thriving and united community.”
