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 in partnership with HCGA held a Cooperate Day under its Green Hanwell project. The Cooperate Company was IMG and there were about 30 of them. The day was a huge success. They all worked really hard, even though it started raining early in the day. They cleared paths, made a new composting area and a dead hedge and removed a lot of the stinging nettles. By the afternoon they had also started planting 1500 woodland bulbs in the garden which will hopefully make a beautiful display in the spring and they had cleared the play areas for people to be able to access better, whilst protecting an area specifically for wildlife.
