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.
The participants enjoyed learning the sewing skills and making a tote bag. We had received a great feedback: ‘Well planned and organised with a very knowledgeable tutor. Good learning environment and learnt a great deal to establish a good sewing foundation’. ‘I learned how to use the sewing machine and how to make a bag in a very good and warm atmosphere. Thank you very much!’ ‘I learnt several new skills, top stitching, learnt how to attach handles to a bag. I love my new bag’.
