Welcome to the Revoe Blackpool '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 Revoe Blackpool 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 Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
One of the young people who attended the Annual Review Meeting suggested running a littler picking club. We helped them to get established, choose a day and time, provided equipment and supported them with an adult to supervise. The Community Clean Up Club started meeting weekly to do litter picks but it soon grew into gardening to maintain flower boxes as well as painting to tidy up the area. They are continuing past the summer and have worked really hard to help make Revoe a better place.
