"A nation's culture resides in the hearts and soul of its people."

Mahatma Gandhi

In just under two weeks the UK will take to the polls to decide, constituency by constituency, who will best serve each local area. We will cast votes that will determine how our families, neighbours and communities are treated and what the culture of the places that we live in will look like in the coming years. With this in mind, we are thinking this month about the idea of 'localness' and about what that means for all of the constituent parts and people that make up the culturally rich society that we cherish and strive to protect.
