Welcome to the Bountagu '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 Bountagu 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 Bountagu with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
In August 2021, Bountagu Big Local organisaed a Family Funday. The event brought together residents, small local businesses and service providers. Anecdotal evidence is that that people feel the area is better because of the events – things are seen to be happening and the neighbourhood has more life. This was particularly significant following COVID-19 lockdowns.
