Since staring our development phase in January this year we have been asking you to tell us your ideas for ways to enhance, preserve, and promote natural and cultural heritage within the Garnock Connections area. This process culminated in a call for project concepts which went out on the 4th of May.
The response from local communities and groups to our engagement events and our call for projects has been amazing. By the submission deadline we had received a total of 96 exciting and innovative project concepts covering all aspects of cultural and natural heritage across the Garnock Connections area. The GC team are now working with various local stakeholders and organisations to bring together all the best aspects of the submitted project ideas into an outstanding programme for Garnock Connections.
Although the deadline for project submissions has now passed, it’s not too late to get involved with Garnock Connections. We’ll be sharing more details of the developing Garnock Connections programme, and asking for your thoughts on how things are shaping up, at future community events. We’ll also be looking for groups and individuals to get involved in making the various projects happen during our delivery phase beginning in early 2018.
