NEWINGTON WINS £1 MILLION LOTTERY FUNDING

Newington Ward has been awarded one million pounds to be used in Newington only to create projects that improve, enhance, update and augment existing areas and groups.
The money has been awarded by an organisation called Big Local. Big Local is part of the National Lottery.
Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live. Big Local is being run by Local Trust, which is working with the Big Lottery Fund and a range of partners providing expert advice and support for residents.

So what is Big Local?

What’s it not about?

It’s NOT about the government or a national organisation telling you what to do.
It’s NOT about individual groups fixing their favourite problem without talking to a wide range of different people who live and work in the community.
It’s NOT about short-term thinking – you’ve got 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for your area.



It is anticipated that this project will be based at The Community Centre. To make the project work it is essential that the community is involved from the beginning.
If you are interested in getting involved just pop into the Centre and leave your contact details.
