We Need You! for our Partnership!

We Need You! for our Partnership!

We’re looking for new partnership members to join us helping influence how we bring about local change. Our partnership is made of up local residents and businesses who live and work in our Big Local area which covers parts of Chatham Central.

Being on the partnership isn’t a full-time job, we really value your time and you can get involved as much as you choose. We generally meet up every other month to discuss what’s happened and make decisions on future plans for our area.

If you’re interested like us in making a difference and playing a role in changing our community for the better, or want to know more please get in touch!
