Community workshops in Edmonton

As part of our outreach strategy we partnered with Doodle Designs on a series of workshops for families, people aged 11-17 and over 65s. These workshops looked at the Local Plan for Enfield and what residents would like to see in Edmonton.

Our volunteer QingYuan Guo wrote about his experiences at these workshops.
