Community Led Campus Pilot Launched for Wootton Bassett and Cricklade


We had a Super meeting last night at Lyneham Primary School -  really well attended and lots of interesting questions about the possible Community Campus.
Lucy gave an excellent presentation and answered many questions - watch this space for more detail.
She explained that the core criteria for a campus building/s included shared reception, community space, accessible IT provision, personal care facilities and catering facilities.
There may be 3 tiers of service - community, leisure and library or community hall and partner's such as Health and Police. 
Local community involvement is criticial to the success of this innovative new pilot project and a Shadow Board needs to be set up representing the whole community.
The project is not driven by cost and the need to make savings, but the wish from Members to continuously drive forward improvements.
She reassured the people present that there was no question of no pool being included in the campus project - a great relief to all present.   
The Area Board agreed to establish 2 Shadow Boards - one for Wootton Bassett and one for Cricklade.
Expressions of interest were requested from any interested parties, but particularly representatives from Education, town and Parish Councils and Local community Groups. 

Interested in finding out more or getting involved ? get in touch;- Alison Sullivan
