Hardwick Village Plan

A Village plan sets out how the community wants to develop in the future, what it needs and the steps needed to make things happen.

This website will be updated as the planning process progresses. Please check back often to keep up to date.

Something Bizarre at the Bazaar!

November 17th, 2016

The Village Plan group is going to be at the Bazaar & Craft Fair on Saturday 19th November.

Unlike many stalls at the Bazaar, we’re not there to raise money. Instead, we want to encourage you to help shape the future of our Village by completing the Village Survey.

We hope that you will take the time to stop by our stall. We’ll have an activity for your kids that won’t cost you a penny. They can use their handywork while visiting the other stalls at the Bazaar and then they can take it home afterwards.

While the kids are busy, we hope that you will stay and talk to us and, in return for your pledge to complete the Village Survey and encouraging your friends and family to do so too, we’ll have a useful gift for you as well.

That’s not what you expected is it?

Truly, something bizarre at the Bazaar!

How Can you Help?

A growing group of volunteers are working together to kick-off the process but its ultimate success depends on you.

We want to consult as widely as possible across all areas of the village and for everyone, particularly including young people in the village, to contribute. The Plan can only be as good as the ideas and community energy that is put into it. So,

  • If you have any ideas on what Hardwick should look like in the future, what facilities it needs in the short, medium or long term, let us know.
  • If you are passionate about some aspect of village life – transport, the environment, sports and social activities or just want to give something back to the community, please get involved.
  • If you have skills or talents that can help us develop the plan or communicate and consult with the village, please volunteer some of your time.
