Project summary

The goal of the Bigger, Better and More Connected project is to make sure that the partners in the Landscape Partnership are all communicating to the community and to visitors in a way that makes sense and is easy understood. Our goal is to create jargon free interpretation programmes and to replace and repair information signs in the Goyt Valley, the Roaches, and on Warslow Estate.

We also want to involve as many people as possible in our varied projects not only through volunteerism, but also through our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. We want to encourage people to take action in both large and small ways throughout the duration of the Partnership. We can only succeed with your help!
