After advertising in the local media and mounting 3 major banners at strategic points along the main road into and out of Brailes, a second public Open Day on NDP progress took place on Saturday June 20th at Brailes Village Hall between 10am – 4pm serving home-made cakes and refreshments.

Stands and tables were manned by steering group members.  There was ample opportunity to feedback to NDP steering group members and also to leave written comments. 67 people visited and compliments were received on the event generally and the clarity of the layout.
