We hold quarterly meetings in each of the two districts for which we have responsibility. Meetings are attended by a variety of statutory and voluntary bodies plus representatives of local residents groups and concerned individuals.

We have successfully tackled numerous local issues from dog fouling to drug dealing by adopting collaborative solutions involving community members wherever possible. We have also sought to engage with a wider section of the community through our Community Soapbox and Mobile Soapbox initiatives.

Hesters Way Partnership has been running the West Cheltenham business breakfast since June 2013. The group meets at the JTs Café in the Community Resource Centre on the last Wednesday of most months. Its a very friendly meeting with no joining fee and offers a chance for you to meet local business folk, exchange ideas and contacts. Any one form a local business, sole trader or charity is welcome to attend; breakfasts cost £5 but if you prefer just a coffee then that’s fine too!
