GBL-funded community projects
MONEY A+E WORKSHOP
Grange Big Local are partnering with financial education specialists Money A+E to bring GBL residents a free, online workshop on money management at 6.30pm on Thursday 5th November. The workshop will cover budgeting, saving, benefit entitlements, and changing money habits for the better. At a time when many are struggling financially as a result of lockdown, the course content is designed to be effective at all income levels.
COMMUNITY GRANTS PROGRAMME - ROUND TWO
IT’S OFFICIAL! Grange Big Local’s 2020 community grants programme is open for applications from Monday 16th November - Monday 7th December!
There are two kinds of grants up for grabs: up to £500 for local residents and up to £10,000 for local organisations who want to bring about a positive change to our community. We’ll be sharing more info on exactly how to apply and other details in the next few weeks. But, for now, it’s time to get thinking about those bright ideas!
MANOR PARK ROAD AND TRINITY ROAD UNDERPASS
We’ve been super busy developing our renovation project for Manor Park Road and Trinity Road Underpass. These past few weeks, you may have spotted us conducting observational surveys and chatting with residents about their ideas for transforming the Underpass into a welcoming and accessible space for residents and users alike. If you’ve got any burning ideas, make sure to fill out this short 3-min survey and get your voice heard!
MARKET PLACE PLAYGROUND
We are on the hunt for local residents who are interested in joining a "Friends of Market Place Playground" group that will come together to spearhead the renovation and make sure that the community's voice resonates throughout the project. Get in touch with us at [email protected] to find out more details!
