That’s the question being explored by community leaders, groups and charities at a special workshop being held in Connahs Quay on Thursday.

The workshop is being run by Amplify Connah’s Quay a Welsh Government funded initiative run by the Young Foundation, a charity which supports people across the UK to develop new ways to tackle inequalities.

Thursday will see people living and working within Connah’s Quay communities coming together to look at changes they would like to see locally.

It’ll also be an opportunity to discuss stories being told in the area, and talk about what is already happening in Connah’s Quay while offering practical support in developing innovative ideas and projects.

Organiser Andy Dunbobbin said

“Our focus is on unlocking the potential for change that exists across the area, drawing people together around shared values, focusing on solutions rather than problems, building understanding of the tools and methods of social innovation and recognising that ultimately vibrant communities can only be built and renewed by the people living in them.”

Amplify Connah’s Quay is part of a growing network of place-based initiatives that are seeking to establish new approaches to transforming towns,and are also working in Aberystwyth and Port Talbot.

Everybody is welcome to attend on Thursday at 5:30pm – 8:30pm Cambrian Aquatics. Wepre Drive (Connah’s Quay Baths)
