So as we enter in to the lighter, longer days, the volunteers supporting the Community Connectors have been working up new events, collaborations and building more connections across our community.

Firstly, thank you to Alison from the Coop who recently attended our open committee meeting, hopefully a new ally, that hope to be supporting more community events across the area soon. By connecting with more commercial partners such as Coop, we can achieve more across the area.

This takes me one to some of the fabulous collaborations we have planned this summer. We continue to partner with Brooklands Farm School for our regular Friday Night Dinner Events, but this June will be partnering in the delivery of the successful Brookfest. Volunteers within the Community Connectors are planning the live music line up and running the Friday Night, yes Friday Night sessions at this years Brookfest.

Following on from the success of last years youth events, we are also hoping to be working again with Aargon Housing Trust in delivering youth sessions across the area this summer too. This is an exciting opportunity as we know from feedback, our estates lack a youth provisions.

Finally, this summer we are collaborating once again with Broughton Cycling Group (BCG) who are holding their annual Sportif in May, with Community Connectors running the Summer Fete element. The event will be supporting two charities, MK Snap and SIA (Spinal Injuries Association). The last two years of collaborating with BCG has led to a really fun day with a great turn out, and we hope for the same again this year!

If you are inspired buy any of the project the Community Connectors are involved in, join us, we are always on the look out for new volunteers and committee members, and welcome everyone from across Broughton and Brooklands.
