Squilometre = working in your neighbourhood (in roughly one square kilometre!)
Connecting People to People and People to Place
What we do
We know that Burnthouse Lane with its unique heritage and amazing community is a special place. With the help of your DCC Councillor, Marina Asvachin, we now have a bit of funding in the pot to find creative ways to celebrate it together:-
Flags to line our streets
Researching our landscape - uncovering its hidden secrets
Tea parties and inter-generational events
It's up to you - you decide!
How does it work?
The short answer is - one street at a time! You vote for which street, avenue, open space, tree or stream you'd like to celebrate in the Burnthouse Lane area and we'll show you how to reveal its hidden mysteries. Every single place has a story to tell and we'll show you, using the established Squilometre technique, how to reveal them. We have some kick-starter funding, thanks to Devon County Council - the rest is up to you! Each project lasts around 9 months and, together, we should be able to do one a year.
