We’ve been taking part in lots of podcasts during the covid-19 – and so have the Invest Local communities. It’s been amazing to hear the stories of what communities have been doing in response to Covid-19. Have a listen and be inspired!
Seismic Wales spoke to Jess from the Invest Local group MaesNi in Bangor about the community working together to help residents during Covid-19. And Emma from BCT shares some examples of what some of the other Invest Local communities have been up to in lockdown.
Jess from MaesNi also speaks to Russell in this episode of the Community Development Podcast. She’s joined by local councillor Dylan Fearnley and James Deakin from North Wales Recovery Communities, who are also instrumental in the community’s coordinated response to Covid-19.
Our Chief Exec Chris talks about the 13 Invest Local communities are adapting to the Coronovirus crisis, and Donna Jordan from the Invest Local group We Are Plas Madoc talks through some of the activities that they’ve been doing to keep residents fed, busy and connected during lockdown.
In another episode of the Community Development Podcast, Russell talks to Helen and David, who are both involved in the Invest Local group Together Trust, which works in the Trowbridge and St Mellons areas of Cardiff. They talk about some of the activities they’ve been involved in to tackle isolation and boost community spirit during lockdown – including a community diary project and a visit from Father Christmas in July!
