Wychavon Supporting Communities FREE WORKSHOPS

One of Wychavon District Council’s promises is to run a two year programme of workshops for parish and town councils and community groups on a range of topics that bring together successful examples and share best practice to enable others to implement their own solutions to local needs. The workshops are free for representatives of Wychavon based groups and organisations but advance booking is essential as we will only run a workshop if enough places are filled.
