LGiU Fortnightly 30th August – Community action…in action

A thriving community is what everyone in local government aspires to create and that’s exactly what Ingrid found in the beautiful Welsh town of Llandrindod Wells. Hear about the community orchard run by Transition Llandrindod, the life of a Town Crier, the Victorian Festival and how to run a community cafe. We also discuss the turbulent national political picture, making (foolhardy) predictions about next week’s spending round.

Plus our regular roundup of daily news stories, including heating Islington using waste energy from the tube, declining health and safety prosecutions, Sheffield’s committee system bid, South Norfolk’s new alpaca herd and a mystery bus shelter renovation in Stroud.

Hosted by Jennifer Glover and Ingrid Koehler. Tweet us @LGiU
