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.
Local resident, Monica Smith, hosted her sixth Christmas Together event on Christmas Day, this time at Gallows Close Centre. The event aimed to bring together both families and individuals for a full day of festive celebrations, completely free of charge. Over 30 people joined in the fun and were served a full day’s Christmas menu and enjoyed festive games and entertainments. Monica was assisted by a small team of volunteers on the day and is grateful for funding and support from Barrowcliff Residents’ Association, Barrowcliff Big Local, Gallows Close Centre, Councillors Chatt and Popple for their contributions from the SBC Locality Budget Scheme, and Councillor Heritage and his wife Sylvia for volunteering.
