More than 10% of the population of Wormley and Turnford turns over in any year, so there are always new people in our community who know nobody locally.
We want Wormley and Turnford Big Local to reach out to local people, long term residents and new arrivals alike and to offer opportunities for building friendships, neighbourliness and pride in the community.
Our hub has an important part to play in this aspect of the plan. As well as being an information point on the high street, it is a meeting place with regular events on a small scale.
Events on a larger scale are also part of the strategy for developing a sense of community. In 2016, WTBL and HRC hosted the first Wormley and Turnford Big Lunch, a fantastic day which we hope to make an annual event.
