Welcome to the Three Parishes '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 Three Parishes 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 Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
The 3PBL gave a sizeable grant and loan (half later converted to another grant) to the Gobowen Area Improvement Committee to enable them to buy and renovate the Grade 2 listed buildings of Gobowen Station. Since then, they have done considerable interior renovation and now are seeking funds for even more considerable exterior renovation. This is a slow process which requires the perseverance and determination of committed volunteers to see through a project that has already enhanced welfare of travellers. The bigger picture is further development of the line to the local Orthopaedic hospital — and beyond.
