Connecting Pomeroy Engagement Programme

Engagement Programme Update

Given the current situation with Covid -19, the community engagement programme has been reviewed and amended. 

Some activities have been postponed until next year or whenever it is safe to bring people together, and some new activities have been added including support for rural crafts and online training sessions.

Woollen Woods

Join us and get creative this summer, we plan to hold a Woollen Woods event in Pomeroy Forest later this year. 

All creative art pieces should relate to the theme for this year of Bees, Butterflies and Blooms. Art pieces should be made with materials suitable for display in the forest and be able to withstand inclement weather.

At this stage we are just asking people to create art pieces, eventually we will bring all the pieces together and decorate the forest.  If you or your organisation would be interested in obtaining a craft pack to produce items to display at the Pomeroy Woollen Woods please contact:

Community Engagement - Coming later this year
  • The Scarecrow project: families, individuals and groups will be encouraged to design and make scarecrows at home to be displayed at individual properties or at prominent sites throughout the village.  Online judging will take place where the local community will decide on best display in a range of categories.
  • Local history talks: will be delivered through webinars or with social distancing measures in place.
  • Weekly community training and support sessions for rural crafts will take place.

Pomeroy In Bloom

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.
