Grange Big Local event to identify resident ambassadors  


Grange Big Local are looking for community-minded people to help spread the word about Big Local and its potential to transform an area of East Finchley.  


The Grange Big Local area, which includes the Grange, Font Hills and Thomas More estates and the roads in between, has been allocated £1 million of lottery money.  Residents are starting to put together plans for the money and the views of other people living, working and volunteering in the area are being sought on how to make the neighbourhood an even better place.  


Grange Big Local are holding the resident ambassadors workshop at the Old Barn at 20 Fallows Court on Thursday 27th March at 6.30pm.  Volunteer ambassadors will receive training, ongoing support and guidance.  


Grange Estate resident and Big Local Steering Group member Aisha Kene Lawrence said:  


"Having been involved with Grange Big Local for almost a year, I feel that this exciting community-led project is really coming together. If you are interested in improving the area and want to have your say how the money is spent please come along to the Resident Ambassadors' Workshop and find out how you can get involved!"  


Paul Bragman, the Big Local representative for the area, said:  


"We are pleased to have the opportunity to run this workshop in the heart of the local community.  I'd encourage local people who are passionate about making their area a better place to come along and have their say!"
