Welcome to the Hanwell '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 Hanwell 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 Hanwell with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
This film, recorded at Hanwell Carnival in August 2016, partnership members and other stakeholders talk about the work of Hanwell Big Local in its support for Hanwell Community Centre Consortium in its bid to manage the Centre as well as training, employment and environmental initiatives, the influence Big Local has in the area and what they hope to achieve in the future.
A short film shot by young people on Copley Close, Cuckoo estate and Gurnell Grove, Hanwell, about the changes the community would like to see on their estate over the next 10 years. As part of the development some community facilities are to be demolished and relocated to an improved Hanwell Community Centre with space and potential for new uses and facilities. The film offers a wide range of ideas which are hopefully just the beginning of the discussion.
