SUPPORTING COMMUNITY ECONOMIC & CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT building local economy.
MCAN and friends are proposing to set up a Community Hub which could include the following: cafe, co-op, local business incubator spaces, tourist info centre, TeePee local music venue with chai, KIL Keep It Local centre, recycled mart etc. This project is to nurture the local economy, the local culture and the local people. We need to look after the future of our town, have a place where we can come together and have some input about what is happening here.

others are prepared to take on, providing the support is there within
the community. Below is a temporary website which Julie has put up which
