Wormley and Turnford Big Local has been awarded a massive one million pound grant by the Big Lottery Fund. It’s earmarked for community projects run by local people over the next ten years.
WT Big Local was set up in Autumn 2012. After two well-publicised community engagement meetings, we introduced the idea of creating the project and asked for volunteers to help bring about big change in their area. As a result, a partnership of resident volunteers was formed to gather ideas and views from local people about how we can work together to improve the local area. From this, we wrote and submitted the Wormley and Turnford Community Plan which was approved by the Big Lottery Fund in Autumn 2014.
The next step of the project was launched to Wormley and Turnford residents in January 2015, enabling them to apply for grants and support for events and projects designed to bring the local community together.
