Bancroft council is working to improve our community based on suggestions from another one.

The First Impressions Community Exchange allowed members of Bancroft and Deep River Councils to learn from one-another.

Bancroft Councillor Bill Kilpatrick says the town of Bancroft is now working to start putting some of the suggested changes into effect.

Kilpatrick says in Bancroft, signage was one of the identified priorities.

Kilpatrick says there were some concerns raised about garbage receptacles being full, and the possible need for more of them.

Kilpatrick says the benefit of these types of exchanges is to have another community set out priorities for you.
