Welcome to the Whitley Bay '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 Whitley Bay 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 Whitley Bay with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers
After a bit of a disaster with previous website arrangements we decided to work on it in-house. OK, it's not going to win any prizes but we are happy to launch it 'as is' and improve it as we go... Here it is: www.whitleybaybiglocal.org The main thing for us is that the site is low maintenance and for it to link to our Facebook content. In a recent survey we found that nearly 70% of respondents visit our FB page and follow it as a way of keeping in touch with Whitley Bay Big Local events and activities.
