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
Film 5: June 2022. David continues his video diary about the creation of a community eco-hub for Whitley Bay and the challenges, and sometimes frustrations of managing the development process - achieving the steps one by one, all the work going on behind the scenes, trying to find what will work for everyone and maintaining it as a community-led project.
