A MEETING to discuss aspects of art and heritage inside the Bungay town plan will be on April 20 in the council chamber.

Everyone who has an interest in the subject, including artists, arts and craft groups, tourism representatives and those involved with the use or care of heritage buildings are invited to attend.

The Bungay Town Partnership has been making progress with compiling the town plan to assess community needs and aspirations for future improvements.

Individual groups are already busy discussing issues relating to sports, health, the river environment and roads and transport.

There has also been the successful Boost Bungay Business event, held in the Chaucer Institute. This has led to further discussions and ideas about ways of enhancing the town and shops to encourage more visitors, and improve the local economy.

Chris Reeve from the Bungay Town Partnership said: “Sadly, nobody has yet come forward to champion the youth of the area.

There is no point in committing to a Town Plan if young people and their needs are not represented. We would like to get two separate groups established, one to discuss to the needs of younger children, and another for teenagers.

“The sports group is dealing with sports facilities for all ages, but what about all the other things that are needed to appeal to the young? If you think you can help, please get in touch.”

If you are interesting in becoming a voice for the youth, attending the arts and heritage meeting or contributing to any of the other groups, telephone Martin Evans or Chris Reeve at the Staithe Riverside Centre on 01986 896788.

The arts and heritage meeting takes place at 5pm.
