We are using contact details from original Landings parish communications, some dating back to 2003, to get in touch with parishes that invested in Landings. This exercise is enabling us to build a picture of the status of Landings in the UK in 2017. We are learning that, down the years, there have been many changes of Landings people across the country, that Landings has died in some parishes, that it is alive and thriving in other parishes and that there is a desire out there to either revisit Landings or look at it for the first time. We are also learning that Landings has made a quiet but very positive difference where it has taken root.
This piece of work will enable us to develop a strategy to reinvigorate Landings. Within this strategy we will use our improved Landings materials, greater teamwork exploiting today’s communication vehicles, the knowledge that we have gained from our experiences, the skills that we have built up throughout the UK and publicity for Landings’ achievements.
