   🌟 Eldon Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) 🌟

This project, a partnership between BMBC and Historic England, has led to impressive conservation work along Eldon Street. Tegwen Roberts, the Project Manager for HAZ, spoke at the September 2023 Bu3a Members Monthly Meeting, highlighting the project’s success.

Members of Bu3a have been actively involved in research and consultation over the past three years, contributing significantly to the project.

BMBC is organizing an event on Tuesday 9 July 2024 in Glassworks Square to mark the end of this wonderful project. The event will feature a variety of activities, performances, and exhibitions.

Additionally, The Cooper Gallery has a display of postcards of Eldon Street from 13 May to 21 September 2024.
