There are a lot of changes going on at the moment, including at the Bridge.
On 27th Feb the Bridge Collective received confirmation of a 25% cut in funding from Devon County Council. This is a cut of £12,500 over a year – equivalent to loosing 18 hours of paid staff time per week. We have agreed a new DCC grant agreement at this reduced level, confirmed to run from April 2017 to September 2018. We are working on funding bids to ensure our ongoing survival/ regeneration.

Some things won’t be happening in the way they have been. As always, how we move forward is decided democratically and agreed at the monthly Community Meetings, to which everyone is welcome to join in.
You can find out updates of what is happening on our website, FaceBook page or there will be up to date calendars in a pocket on our front door.
