The first transmission from forthcoming Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan's new album, "Your Community Hub"

Tip! The first transmission from the forthcoming Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan's new album, "Your Community Hub". "A Shared Sense of Purpose" looks at the small community centres that helped Runcorn become a five minute city, long before the current discussion about fifteen minute cities. The idea that the larger town would be divided into smaller centres, each with a set of facilities at the heart, and designed to be within five minutes walk of anyone’s front door. It looks at the facilities that were at the heart of these centres - a post office, bank, shops, GP surgery, school - and mourns the loss of these as funding was cut and services privatised.

The lead single from the album, "Your Community Hub" is released in this 12” vinyl version accompanied by an exclusive remix from the Godfather of New Town Synthology, Vince Clarke, to whom we are indebted.
