Building a Community




‘An inspiring read, if you focus

    hard enough on a goal

    anything is achievable’


          Joe Clarke MBE

In Building a Community I tell the story of the eight year project to build a new village hall in Fradswell, the trials and tribulations along the way, and how it was the catalyst that built a vibrant rural community.


I reflect on the leadership lessons learned along the way and how, by adhering to the timeless principles of effective leadership, any goal, however unattainable it may seem, is achievable.


I examine the crucial importance of effective community leadership, and how leaders are needed at every level, everywhere.


The book is aimed at both a leadership audience, and those engaged in any community or other voluntary endeavour
