Podcast - Middlemarch Community Led Housing CIC
Our CLT Secretary, Liz Maunder, was interviewed as part of a podcast series put together by Middlemarch Community Led Housing.
The discussion she had with Colin McDonald (who also happens to be a director of our CLT) includes a brief history of
the Norton Sub Hamdon Community Land Trust, our housing scheme and our work to retain the community shop and post office. You can listen to episode one, and other interesting episodes from the series here.
MONTHLY VILLAGE NEWSLETTER
The monthly village newsletter
is normally delivered through your letterbox. Unfortunately, the April newsletter will not be done in this way. Many of the wonderful team of volunteers who normally deliver are unable to do so due to self-isolating. It is also not known how long the virus stays on surfaces (A new analysis found that the virus can remain viable in the air for up to 3 hours, on copper for up to 4 hours, on cardboard up to 24 hours and on plastic and stainless steel up to 72 hours), and we do not want to put people at risk with any chance of delivering anything that is contaminated through your door.
A PDF copy of the April newsletter from the editor has been loaded onto the Parish Council website, so you are able to view it from there.
The direct link to the April newsletter is:
If anyone would like an email a copy of this newsletter directly to them, then please email
firstname.lastname@example.org and they will email a copy to you straight away.
