The chart below is a summary of how much we have spent on Thurcroft Big Local funding between August 2014 and July 2017. Funding has been spent on projects and priorities identified in the Thurcroft Big Local Plan. Before interest, we still have a minimum of £283,495 left in our funding pot and can still access this anytime over the next 7 years.

Community Pride: We have provided skips, arranged litter picks and organised numerous community events including the Summer Gala each year. We have raised £7960 which we can use for community events when the funding ends.

Regeneration: We have spent £526,624 on our biggest project which  has been the building of Thurcroft Hub on New Orchard Lane delivering sports and social activities to the local community . We have also provided advice services to residents.

Children and Young People: We have run  regular youth clubs through Youth Work Works, summer playschemes and contributed funding to the new playground near Gordon Bennett Memorial Hall

Infrastructure: We employ a member of staff Rachel Cole for 2 days a week, we have produced newsletters, rented a shop and provided £8720 in small grants to groups in the village.
