PACT Community Consultation



Berwickshire Association of Voluntary Service (BAVS) has been commissioned by Preston & Abbey Community Trust (PACT) to carry out a community consultation in the area of Abbey St Bathans, Bonkyl and Preston. This work has kindly been funded by Aikengall 11, Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund.

Over September 2019, BAVS will hold a series of consultation events for local residents, as well as going house-to-house to talk to people. The consultation hopes to raise awareness of PACT and get local residents involved in decision-making about what events and services they would like to see running in their area in the future.

A survey has also been created to capture the views of residents and can be completed online.

There will be two local consultation events – Coffee, Cake and Chat. Please drop in to either event for a chat about what you would like to see in happening in your area:

  • Preston Village Hall, Saturday 21st September, 1pm – 3pm
  • The Riverside Bakehouse, Tuesday 24th September, 6pm – 8pm 

After the initial consultation, PACT will trial some new events and activities in the local area, based on what local residents asked for. For more information contact Jenny Haines at BAVS on 01361 883137 or e-mail

Everyone who submits a response will be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 One4All gift card. One entry per person!
