Tell us how you think Bowness is doing!

BownessThe new Bowness Community Association is using Bowness VitalSigns to find out from the community what is important, both in areas to celebrate and things that might be missing, and help us to take action.

Thank you for sharing your ideas so far! In our first steps we learned what’s important to you for the Bowness community, and twelve key issues were identified.

Now we need everyone’s help again. This time, tell us how Bowness is doing in these areas and what action we need to take.

Take a few minutes and share your voice!
