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
Local residents, small business owners and board members came together for a discussion about what is changing in Whitley Bay and how Big Local is helping to make this happen. In this film, people talk about the overall impact of Whitley Bay Big Local - the value of their community shop, the importance of making connections, the diversity of the community, their influence over the environment, and relationships with strategic partners.
