MOOR THAN MEETS THE EYE – How it might affect you.
"Dartmoor National Parks in collaboration with the Heritage Lottery Fund and several other partner agencies has set up the:
‘Moor Than Meets The Eye – Landscape Partnership’.
It’s aims to bring together local communities, businesses, farmers, visitors and volunteers to understand and appreciate the unique historic landscape of South East Dartmoor and to contribute to its future.
What exactly this means, and how it might affect locals, will be presented to the village, and other interested parties, on 11th April at 8.00pm in the Village Hall at Postbridge.
The Project Leader, Steve Scoffin, Visitors Services Manager, Richard Drysdale and Andrew Bailey, Community and Events Officer will be there to outline the aims and objectives of the project and answers questions from the audience.
As this is quite short notice can you please tell anyone you see (that you think might interested in this project) about this meeting?
A good turn out would be much appreciated.
