Atmos for Totnes gets a famous supporter for their community project

Blog Tags

In a bid to raise awareness to their plight, Atmos for Totnes has attracted a number of well known supporters, the most well-known so far being actor and model Cara Delevigne.

Atmos for Totnes, the campaign group in support of the project to redevelop the Atmos site (the former Dairy Crest factory in Totnes) to create a community-owned centre, has been trying to get the attention of Saputo, the owner of the site who sold it from underneath the Totnes Community Development Society, on social media. 

The effort has attracted a number of high profile supporters to their cause, with Atmos for Totnes posting this comment from Cara Delevigne: “Atmos Totnes is a pioneering and extraordinary initiative to turn a former Dairy site into a collaborative music and arts space and so so much more - it is community-led, community-built, community-owned, and based on a community's needs.

"Inspiring projects like this have never been more necessary and should be supported and protected.” 

Cara Delevigne has modelled for all the big names in fashion and was awarded Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2012 and 2014. As an actor, she has played the Enchantress in the comic book film Suicide Squad in 2016 and starred opposite Orlando Bloom as Vignette Stonemoss in Carnival Row in 2019.

Other notable supporters include Caroline Lucas MP; TV presenter and activist Chris Packham; former Totnes MP Dr Sarah Wollaston; Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of the Leon food chain and leader of the National Food Plan; Olivier de Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights and Co-chair of International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food System, as well the former UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food; Princess Marie-Esméralda of Belgium and a long list of businesspeople, artists, authors, activists, writers and many more

The Atmos plan for the site includes 62 affordable houses (held affordable in perpetuity); 37 houses for those aged over 55; 7,051 square metres of workspace; a 58-bed hotel; an energy centre; a community venue; youth provision and health facilities.
