Happy New Year. Thurcroft Big Local Partnership continues to work together with all residents to put together a plan for the village to spend £1m over the next ten years to make the village a “place where people want to bring their children up in the future.”
Members are keen to involve all village residents in activities, events and training during January 2014. The Big Local Information Centre on Green Arbour Road continues to be open both all day on Fridays and Saturday mornings. In addition, efforts to clean up the village continue with a Big Local litter pick organised for Saturday 18th January 2014, meeting at the Big Local Shop at 11am.
Everyone is welcome to a free information session open to all on funding for groups facilitated by Peter Foyle of South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau which will be held at 6.30pm on Monday 20th January 2014 at Arbour Drive Community Centre on Arbour Drive. This session will also include details about the Star People Awards available to Thurcroft residents for individuals with ideas that can improve the village, both big and small, that they are willing to lead.
There will also be a free briefing on social investment and making the best use of the Thurcroft Big Local money facilitated by Sam Keighley of Local Trust to be held between 10.30am and 12.30pm on Saturday 25th January 2014 at Gordon Bennett Memorial Hall on Green Arbour Road – this session is also open to all residents.
