The Thurcroft Big Local Conversation

Thurcroft Big Local Partnership is keen to work together with groups in the village to develop and support community projects that will make a difference to residents.

The Partnership can provide up to £1000 of funding for projects that will:

  • Work together long term with us to help make a difference in the village
  • Demonstrate they can find matched funding to create best value

Anyone who is interested in exploring this opportunity need to complete a simple form to   tell us briefly about your project idea– we will then invite you to speak with us at one of our meetings on a Monday night to have a conversation about your project, how we can work together and how we may be able to help and support. It may be just help with publicity and posters you require, some advice, providing volunteers or help with some funding to help the project along.

An online form can be completed here 

Forms can be obtained from info@thurcroftbiglocal.org.uk or by post to Thurcroft Big Local Partnership at The Hub, New Orchard Lane, Thurcroft S66 9AE. Closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 29th June 2018.

Thank Yous

“Thank you to Big Local for their generous grant. It was well spent at our Good Friday event and we had a fantastic time. We had many positive comments about the activities and the organisation of the day”

Facelift to Sandy Lane Allotment Site

Problems with security and vandalism at the site will now be reduced due to the generosity of The Banks Community Fund and Thurcrof tBig Local . Other benefits have been provided by the local Parish Council and the fencing supplier Kingsforth Security Fencing Ltd.

Security fencing has been erected at vulnerable sections of the site perimeter whilst at the same time providing space for an additional garden area to be used by the local school children. The children’s area is to be located just inside the entrance to the site and will provide an immediate view to walkers accessing the adjacent open area to the old pit site which provides scenic country walks.
