Young people aged 18-25 in the Trowbridge area with innovative and exciting new projects are being offered the chance to turn their ideas into reality.

The Trowbridge Town Hall Trust, based in the town’s historic building is offering space, support and up to £1000 worth of funding by Sovereign Housing.

Project lead Harriet Wyatt said “We are hoping to hear from around 200 18- to 25-year-olds about their ideas, whether it’s a business initiative, community project or a creative event? We’ll hear their ideas and then hopefully help to realise them.”

David Lockwood, director of the Town Hall Trust, added  “I honestly can’t wait to hear what ideas come back. As someone who started projects and a business in my ‘20s, I know how daunting and exciting the early days can be. I hope we can support as many of these ideas as possible.”

The Town Hall is already home to the Free Range Cafe and two independent shops: We Are Undressed, Trowbridge’s first zero waste shop, and the Trust’s own art and book shop.

If you yourself or you know of any young people who you think may be interested, contact Harriet Wyatt at harrietlouisewyatt@gmail.com or message Trowbridge Town Hall directly on Facebook. They will then arrange to have a chat via phone or video call.
