Welcome to the Brackley Community Development Trust
The Brackley Community Development Trust is made up of volunteers from the community who want to see positive changes to our town. Its aim is to bring back the pride and the pleasure of life in Brackley, a place that is so much more than simply a commuter town - there is a wide range of skills and abilities here with a rich history and heritage.
The Directors are a collection of diverse local residents whose aim is to enhance the quality of life for people in Brackley and help make the town a pleasure to live in. We are open to suggestions, new ideas and new members. We are not exclusive in any way and would encourage more and more people will join the trust and actively participate.
We wish Brackley to be an exciting place to live in and visit, a place where ambitious, creative and talented people have an outlet.
We have launched a membership scheme which we hope will be widely supported by the community, both in spirit and more practical ways.
Please take a look around our web site which will be updated regularly with information and projects we are working on, now and in the future.
Membership forms can be downloaded from the Documents and Forms page.
