A programme of community engagement and development will run alongside the capital development programme.
|Interested In Pomeroy Past?
Who were the Lowry family and why were they important? When was Pomeroy House first built? What are the origins of the famous ‘Mountains of Pomeroy’ song?
If you’re interested in the Pomeroy of the past, the first of a series of local history workshops will take place in November - date to be confirmed.
Classes in crochet, painted furniture, knitting and dress making are all being planned as part of the Connecting Pomeroy project.
Pomeroy Resource Centre will be hosting the craft classes, scheduled to begin soon.
A new group ‘Pomeroy in Bloom’ has been set up in the village and will be working alongside the Council to create new planting schemes to improve the look of the village centre and to complement the public realm scheme.
The group has already held a successful fundraising coffee morning and is currently recruiting volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, the group would be keen to hear from you.

A range of other activities are being proposed as part of the community engagement programme.
A country craft market, school drumming workshops, a couch to 5K programme, a Big Breakfast, environmental activities and themed seasonal events at Christmas and Easter are all being considered.
We’ll keep you up-to-date in future issues of the Connecting Pomeroy community update.
