Do you know of a "local legend" making a difference to Newtown's community?


Montgomeryshire AM, Russell George, is calling for towns and villages throughout the area to recognise those people who are doing good in their community and nominate them in the Revive & Thrive Local Legends Campaign.


This national campaign, delivered by Newtown based regeneration company Revive & Thrive, strives to highlight those passionate about the places in which they live and about their community’s future prosperity.


Mr George said: “Powys communities are full of residents and businesses who are giving up their time and sometimes money to see that our towns are vibrant and that they remain great places to live.


“With Revive & Thrive being a local company, it is essential that our legends are recognised and given the credit that they deserve along with the other UK towns and cities who are participating.”


Mark Barnes, Founder and Managing Director of Revive & Thrive said: “This is a unique campaign that not only recognises the work of the individual but also asks everyone to consider how that person brings in the support of the community.  For the future success of any legend’s work, it is key that the full burden doesn’t fall on the individual.”


Revive & Thrive boasts a national membership base that runs from small towns to large Business Improvement Districts and is gathering nominations for this campaign from across the UK.  As Revive & Thrive is a Powys based company, Mr George and Mr Barnes both feel that it is essential that the county is represented.


The Local Legend Campaign is a two year programme, with the first awards being made in Northwich, Cheshire on 2 and 3 March at Revive & Thrive’s Spring Conference. In addition to the national promotion and recognition that the legends will receive, there are also prizes that nominated entrants can win for their community.
