Welcome to the Catton Grove '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 Catton Grove 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 Catton Grove with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
This film, made at Big Local's 'The Box' and Catton Grove Community Centre, records what's happening in Catton Grove, how people are benefiting and how the area is changing.
This film shows the opening of the Catton Grove Big Local ‘box’ - previously a disused police office. This is the culmination of lots of work around negotiating management and refurbishment of the space, and the start of a local hub for activities and services in Catton Grove.
Our latest newsletter celebrates signing the lease on the old Police Station in Woodcock Road which gives us the 'green light' to turn it into a Big Local community resource centre.
