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.
Update on Friends of Waterloo Park. As you probably know we started planting the fourteen flower beds to the south of the Pavilion last Spring and we had intended to finish the project this hear. However, recent events have postoned that for the moment. We did manage to plant a lot of perennials just before the lockdown and look forward to them coming into bloom from the end of June. Other plants that had been on order are being cared for by our members ready to plant when the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Many of us are also growing plants from seeds so hopefully we will still be able to have a good show of colour later in the season. Here are some photos of our efforts.
