LYME Regis Development Trust will mark its tenth anniversary at its Annual General Meeting on Monday, September 15.

The charity hopes to encourage people to set up a Community Land Trust project in Lyme Regis.

A talk by Alan Fox, Community Land Trust Project Manager of the Cornwall Rural Housing Association, is hoped to inform and inspire people.

Development Manager Marcus Dixon said: "Ten years is a good time for the Development Trust to take stock. Giving the opportunity to review the charity's work over the last decade and consider options for the future.

"Lyme Regis is a small town with a big name and this remarkable reputation has been founded in large measure by the townspeople. This is the case today, as it was in the past, and the life blood of Lyme Regis Development Trust is the continuation of this passion, commitment, skills and expertise of local people."

The Trust was established in February 1998 as an independent charity to focus on initiatives that improve the economic, social and environmental well-being for all in the town and surrounding area.

The meeting will start at 7pm at The Woodmead halls. The Trust's AGM business session will follow, from about 7.45pm.
