‘The church is near, but the road is icy. The pub is far away, but I will walk carefully.’

Last call for evidence - no space left behind

The deadline to feed into the Create Streets Foundation ‘No Place Left Behind’ research is the 2nd November.

They want to hear from you if you have information about past and current projects designed to improve life in England's neighbourhoods - what has worked well, what hasn’t, and what future projects and programmes need to do to succeed in getting a fairer and better deal for so-called 'left-behind' places.

You can feed in by online questionnaire, email, voicemail, or telephone interview before 2nd November - the more voices they hear from, the more representative the research will be so if this is a subject close to your heart, do read on and feed in.

Do glittering media careers await us?
