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
We are starting our community consultation ball rolling to tell local people about the exciting opportunity to use creativity as a means to achieving civic change in Whitley Bay. We hope to build an inclusive year round programme of creative activity that will focus on celebration at our annual carnival. We'll need to make progress in the next 2 months to be able to submit a plan that our community has shaped. Exciting times ahead...
