Way with Words weekend

Ways with Words Literary Festival at Dartington celebrates the power of books, words and ideas in one of the Country's most beautiful settings.

I was delighted to be invited to a lively debate on 'The Big society' with Cole Moreton and Peter Stanford.

I am very clear about the 'Big Society', for me it is about trying to spread the example from communities across South Devon which have been delivering this for years. Government's role is to make sure that the barriers to volunteering and philanthropy is swept away wherever possible and that more power is given to neighbourhoods through localism.
