Blueprint for improving life of West Howe residents to be launched

Bournemouth Echo: The event will be held at the Henry Brown Youth Centre, West Howe. The event will be held at the Henry Brown Youth Centre, West Howe.

A BLUEPRINT for improving life in West Howe is set to be launched next weekend.

Saturday, February 22, will see the latest monthly Give or Take Day at the Henry Brown Youth Centre between 2pm and 4pm, where people can bring along unwanted items and have the chance to take away items they do want.

But this month the event will also see the launch of the West Howe Regeneration Partner-ship’s document, entitled The West Howe Commitment.

Cllr Jane Kelly, Bournemouth’s Borough Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We are delighted to be launching The West Howe Commitment at February’s Give or Take day.

“The document outlines all the things that the West Howe Regeneration Partn-ership and West Howe Action Group would like to support the community to achieve.

“The booklet itself was a real community effort as all the artwork, photo-graphy and production was done by volunteers and residents with the support of West Howe Community Enterprises and Gazelle Design.

“This document offers the residents of West Howe a clear commitment from the plethora of agencies and voluntary sector organisations that work in the area.”

Outset Bournemouth, which will also take part in the special Give or Take Day, will be offering information on its free training courses for people interested in starting a business or becoming self-employed.

National Energy Action will also be on hand to advise residents who bring their energy bills on how to reduce their costs.

Some of them can even type, spell the words 'realise' and 'could' ; never mind use Latin abbreviations correctly.

Might be that there are no major employers around any more.When I think back to my youth it was easy to get a job as Bournemouth/Poole had several employers where you could find work.Only have to think of MacKenzie Glass/Wilkins Bakery/Beales,Beales
ons,Maples,J.J.Allen
s all had workshops,the hundreds employed at Hurn and Christchurch aerodromes and aircraft works,De Havilands,Airspeeds etc.Hundreds of Hotels and Guest Houses where it was easy to get a summer job etc. What has the conurbation got now? Banks and Building Societies,call centres and service industries shedding jobs by the hundreds.That might be a reason why parts of the towns have dropped into the mire. Add the fact that work can be hard to find to the point that council and government money could be used on basic local projects employing local labour to raise the standard of local infrastructure and services and people might raise their heads again!
