Welcome to the Barrowcliff '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 Barrowcliff 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 Barrowcliff with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Barrowcliff Big Local hosted its fourth Dog Show on 26 June 2021, after missing last year’s event! Over 20 dogs and their owners took part in the Show, competing in five classes, including Handsomest Dog, Golden Oldie, Most Obedient Dog, Biscuit Catcher and Child Dog Handler. Not forgetting the ultimate award for “Dog of the Day”. The judges, Laura Young (Beyond Housing), Stuart Smith (Sanctuary Housing) and Tom Clayton (North Yorkshire Coast Methodist Church Circuit), had some tough decisions to make before presenting the winners with their trophies. Sponsors for this year’s Show were Barrowcliff Residents’ Association, Sanctuary Housing, Beyond Housing, SPARKS, Gallows Close Centre, Christmas Together and Community First Credit Union.
