221 Imagining the Future of Porty: Action Porty plan a Heart Talk
Show Notes

Action Porty, the group of local people who originally came together in 2016 to bring Bellfield into community ownership are planning a large scale community led conversation or more accurately many different conversations that will take place on and around an event on the 9th and 10th October called Heart Talk Porty. The question they are asking is 

How do we draw on the resourcefulness of the people living here so that everyone is included in a caring community now and into the future? 

Jayne Saywell talks about asking What Is, What If and What next?

There’s a real sense at the meeting that this ‘Patchwork of local blethers’ as they call it would like to include as many people as possible. You can get in touch with Action Porty using the address [email protected] 


"I was influenced by the start of the pandemic when I could hear the waves. I'd never heard the waves before over the noise of the traffic" Jayne Saywell

"I thought about the water being teeming with life, rather than swimming out to pick up a polystyrene cup" Jayne Saywell
