Jude Boutle - Llandrindod Wells Town ChampionFree admittance includes hot drink and cake served at 7pm.  All are welcome!

TLT are very pleased to announced the speaker at our February meeting will be Jude Boutle, who was recently appointed as Llandrindod Wells Town Champion, a one year appointment funded by the Welsh Government.

Over the past few years a group of local business people led some work through Miller Research in the town which resulted in the publishing of the Llandrindod Wells Economic Regeneration Plan (available on the Welsh Government website).  The Welsh Minister endorsed this report and agreed to fund the Town Champion post.  The approach being taken to regeneration in Llandrindod Wells differs from other Powys Local Growth Zone towns in that it is business led - Newtown has a peer to peer business adviser and Brecon is developing a website to showcase local businesses.

In Llandrindod, the approach is to deliver activity which will result in economic benefit for the town's businesses.  There is an extensive action plan in the report so to ensure that the Town Champion's time is focused, the Business Group have identified six initial priorities which will be the subject of the talk.
