The Name Game

Through community consultation, a key area identified as priority for us was the need to increase footfall and tourism in our district. After much research, development and discussion with our Tourism Steering Group (including representatives from all villages of the District) we have decided on the key themes that make our area unique and are working with internationally prize-winning design and marketing company Zero to bring this to life! 

Key themes identified: PILGRIMAGE - SANCTUARY - COAST

What You Can Do

The Community Enterprise Hub is the cornerstone to all of our community work- and we aim to offer services that will empower, connect and involve all members of our area. We are a community-led organisation and without our community members we would fail to exist. All of our projects derive from community demand and flourish with community involvement. Our community asked for a grass-roots approach to developing our area and to do this we NEED your support
