SO18 Big Local wants our neighbourhoods to be even better places to live; places where people are actively engaging in their community, and that they are proud of.
We are working to ‘build community spirit’ by supporting local people to run and to come along to community events (so far, Spring Community Days and Halloween activities at Townhill Park, Winter Wonderland events in Harefield, and events run through our other themes like Nature Hunts and Community Wellbeing days.).
We have opened the Harefield Hub in a shop unit in Melchet Road, somewhere for people in the community to meet others and as a base for local activities, and we want to support the community centres in our area to be well used and organisationally secure.
We welcome ideas on anything that could be done to build connections within and between our neighbourhoods, and that will encourage more local people to be actively engaged.
