KDBH neighbourhood forum launch

Official Launch of the KDBH Neighbourhood Forum
             Arden Academy, Station Road, Knowle.  Sunday 15 November 2pm - 4pm 

We're proud to have become an officially designated Neighbourhood Forum from 10 October 2015, and have been out and about across our community to publicise the official Forum Launch through the local press, posters and manned display stands at several venues.


You can see some of the posters and handouts we've created to explain what it's all about, focusing on key aspects included in a Neighbourhood Plan, by clicking on the topic links below: 

15 November 2015

About one hundred people attended the Official Forum Launch at Arden Academy.  We were very pleased to welcome Councillor Diana Holl-Allen at the event which she kindly opened for us.

Mapping awareness of the Forum across our Area 


As people came in to the Forum Launch they were encouraged to place a dot on the map to indicate where they live.


With approaching two hundred members now, we are using this information to highlight any gaps in Forum awareness, where we need to focus more communications.

The KDBH Forum meets at Arden Academy - when you see this banner it means there is a Forum meeting that day.

Here we are leafleting in all three villages - with apologies to the Bentley Heath gang, who soldiered on despite rain and gales so we have no photos!
