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.
Catton Grove Big Local has been supporting improvements to Waterloo Park since 2017. It had become a bit rundown and surveys and workshops in the park demonstrated people's desire to change this. The Friends of Waterloo park was formed at an inaugural meeting in May 2018 and with financial support and expertise from Big Local, it has continued to grow. The group is keen that everyone can get involved in making the park a better space and that all members of the community can make use of it. This is their story.
