RESIDENTS of Hatherleigh and surrounding area are invited to a special community event to discuss the town's future this weekend.

The town's community centre is hosting an open event on Saturday February 25 to discuss the results of the Plan-It survey recently conducted.

Hatherleigh Town Council, West Devon Borough Council and the Hatherleigh Plan-It group made up of volunteers have been working together to give the community a lead role in planning the town's future.

A paper survey was distributed to every household in Hatherleigh, and has been posted on the town council's website.

People have been asked to fill in the questionnaire and share their thoughts on what the town needs both now and in the future.

The results of the survey will be revealed at the event, which runs from 10am to 3pm. There will also be two detailed discussions, where people can share their thoughts and concerns.

The first discussion runs from 10.30am to noon, with the second starting at 12.30pm, ending at 2pm.

All are welcome to attend, and refreshments will be available.
