Welcome to the Three Parishes 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Three Parishes as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
16th May 2015 was the first time 3 Parish Big Local held a celebratory event in St Martins All-Through School. On this occasion, the 3PBL asked those who had received Community Chest grants of £500.00 to have a stall in the School gymnasium. There were about 30 stalls in a circle because we also asked other organizations whether they wanted to advertise through having a stall. There were activities in the gymnasium: walking football; school choir; archery and scouts had displays outside.
In this podcast, Glen, from the Three Parishes partnership, talks with Lesley about the ideas behind the Valuation Day and how the event came together.
Christina Trevanion and business partner, Dean, held a free valuation of antiques for the three Parishes Big Local. Items to be valued brought in by members of public cost £3/item. Funds were donated to the Community Centre for its maintenance.
