Looking forward to the end of Big Local

Big Local is about half way through its life with some wonderful and powerful stories to tell of resident led action and change.

All investment within Big Local areas and the activities being funded must be completed by 31 March 2026. Any remaining money will be returned to the National Lottery. No funding can be put aside for activity or organisational support beyond March 2026. (Additional money that local areas raise through or on the back of Big Local can be used without conditions from Local Trust.) It’s possible and perfectly legitimate for your Big Local area to finish funded activity before March 2026 and such areas will have the continuing opportunity to remain part of the Big Local community and take part in learning and research activity.

You can read more about this in the article online here or in the attached PDF.

Big thank You Awards 2017

Our first Big Thank You Award – we received over 90 nominations from residents for other residents and volunteers who made a difference to the community.

We held the award ceremony as part of our Christmas activities and also with the AGM included.

It was a very busy day and with hindsight there was too much going on. For the 2018 awards we will have a separate Christmas event but keep the AGM and Thank you awards together

Here is the full list of nominations we received

here is a photo from the day

Every nominee was presented with a certificate by the Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Mary Hopkinson.  As there were such a large number of nominations we decided to award a special prize for each of the 4 themes across the plan as follows

Things to do and places to go: The Warm Welcome Club:  Mavis Raines

Ethel Burton, Debra Ward

For all their hard work and dedication to make the warm welcome luncheon club a friendly and happy place to local residents to meet.

Access and the Environment: The Gardening Team at All Saints Church: Alan Boswell, Brian Bostock, David Pickworth, Ken Udall

The work that they do most days to keep the church yard and grounds maintained and tidy

Quality of Life: Lindsey Rice

Taking a dinner round to her neighbor every day and buying meals for him to cover when she was away on holiday

Education and training: The Reading Buddy team at Ladywood Primary School: Young learners: Abby Jameson, Bethany Martin Brooks, Taylor Frettingham, Sylvie Humphreys

Showing the drive and determination to offer Ladywood children a library service giving up time before and after school and leaving the lasting legacy of the reading shed

 

It was so good to hear of all of the volunteering and work done by residents to make Kirk Hallam such a great place to live.

 

 

 

 

 

The Big Thank You awards 2018

The Big Thank You Awards 2018 were held at the Big Kirk Hallam Community Centre on Saturday October 20th.

It was the second year of holding the Big Thank You awards.  Residents, volunteers and agencies were asked to nominate residents and volunteers who lived or volunteered in Kirk Hallam and who made a difference to the area and to other residents.

59 residents were nominated for a variety of reasons  – see the attached list here

The local councillor John Frudd came along to present the certificates and awards. Everyone nominated received a Big Thank You certificate

A group of drama students from Kirk Hallam Community academy gave a taster performance of songs from their Grease production

The judges felt that 5 nominees should receive special recognition for their contributions and these were given a special glass trophy
