Welcome to the Whitley Bay '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 Whitley Bay 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 Whitley Bay with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers
Whitley Bay Big Local has long held dreams of owning its own community space. Having rented buildings since the start, it is now creating a community eco-hub. This is the first of a series of video diaries about the process of buying and transforming an old job centre building into a fit for purpose community eco-hub.
