Welcome to the Barrowcliff '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 Barrowcliff 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 Barrowcliff with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
After a three year break due to Covid, Barrowcliff Big Local Partnership was pleased to get back to what they do best by hosting their summer 2022 event - Big Local on Ice. The sun was shining, ice rink sparkling and families aplenty. The volunteers played an amazing part in running a fun-packed family event which involved skating, bouncy castles, crafts, food and music, all free of charge. Families not only enjoyed the activities on offer, but made new friends and links with organisations that provide services within the community. This film shows vice-chair Bill trying out an activity - with a bit of trepidation! A film illustrating what the day meant to residents is also available. An example of true community engagement!!
