Calling Thrapston

We are reaching out to the younger adults of Thrapston...

...and to those who know them.

The Universities of Newcastle and Gloucestershire have been commissioned by DEFRA and Power to Change (an independent charitable trust) to carry out a research project on understanding the lived experience of rural communities and economies.

The research involves carrying out surveys of eight rural communities in England. Two of these communities, Pershore in Worcestershire and Barnard Castle in County Durham, have already been surveyed as a pilot for the project.
The researchers would really appreciate your help in finding people who’d be willing to take part in the survey. They’re looking for younger adults, particularly those in their 20s and 30s but anyone below the age of 50, from the six remaining areas.
One of the selected communities is Thrapston - the others are Minehead, Keswick, Bridgnorth, Alnwick and Shildon - click here for more information.
If you fit this criteria, or know someone who does, then please get in touch with us by email to, or by leaving a message on 01604 780000.

Thank you!
