A Conference open to the public will be held at Dagnall Street Baptist Church on Saturday July 6 (2.00–5.00 pm).
We have a range of lively guest speakers and culminating in a questions and answers panel chaired by Julian Worricker, BBC Radio presenter.
Discussion will probe the success or otherwise of what’s happening here and in places where conservation areas are thriving or in decline. What can they teach us about how to approach our future and what is realistic given the current climate at both government and local levels?
