Thurcroft residents enjoyed an afternoon of free entertainment including pie and peas, music and song provided by children from Thurcroft Infant School and a few games of prize bingo on Tuesday 21st May 2013. The event was held at the Thurcroft Miners Welfare Institute on Katherine Street. Over 65 residents residents attended.
Residents from the Thurcroft Big Local Steering Group began with a short presentation about the work they have been doing. The Big Local Trust is holding £1 million for residents to invest in Thurcroft’s future. The aim is for people to make their communities better places to live in, now and in the future and it will be up to the residents of Thurcroft to decide on how this money is spent.
Resident Tim Leach gave a summary of residents views collected during the past eight months on their visions for the future of the village. Tim said “We have spoken to lots of people in the village – young, old, able bodied, disabled, families, people who have lived in the village a long time and those new to the village”. Shirley Henderson., also a resident did a fantastic photo presentation of the work done by Steering Group members to produce a profile of Thurcroft. People will be asked for their thoughts and contributions.
