St James Street Big Local

Autumn Update November 2014

Last few days to wish online...

We  have nearly 480 wishes towards our target of 500 wishes from local people. We have lots of great ideas and views about how to make the area an even better place to live but we still need more! Please follow this link to tell us more or forward to your friends so they can give us their ideas before 24th November 2014. After this date we will be analysing your wishes and setting up a referendum so you can help us prioritise your good ideas for how to spend the £1m.

Big Local needs you!

All of the Steering Group members are volunteers who have been working away for 18 months to help release the £1m pledged by the National Lottery for community projects. Without help from local people we cannot draw down the money so Big Local needs you!

The group are particularly looking for help, preferably but not exclusively, from residents within the mapped St James Street area. 
We need help from volunteers to form a new working party to establish the structure and governance of Big Local over the next decade.

If you would like to get involved or know more, please get in touch with our worker Neesha Badhan at or tel: 07881 015 873
