Welcome to the Hanwell '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 Hanwell 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 Hanwell with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
HBL funded Pilates Classes which were delivered by an experienced Pilates instructor. Some of the feedback received from the participants is: “Maarten was a great teacher. Liked the fact it was local and community based, with local people. Great time, very convenient”. “The time flew by and I enjoyed so much. Maarten was fantastic and I have loved and learned about Pilates, which I will definitely continue”. “Really helped me get back my confidence after having a baby. Feel more connected with myself and gave me an hour headspace a week which has had a really positive impact”. “I have enjoyed every lesson despite some discomfort. I will continue with Pilates as I feel it has improved my overall flexibility and made me less tense”.
