We are super excited to announce that East Cleveland Villages Big Local has reviewed their development plan and are about to launch under a new name and new title. This means a rebrand to something everyone will come to know and recognise.
East Cleveland Villages Big Local is being renamed and will become East Cleveland Good Neighbours – Connecting Communities. Together with a new development plan for the area and new direction of travel for East Cleveland Good Neighbours – this is an exciting time for East Cleveland.
We believe that the change will be much easier for the community to connect with and relate to. The partnership team has worked with a consultant and engaged with the community to develop an easy-to-understand development plan with clear themes that will benefit the communities of East Cleveland. Following a period where COVID halted the progress of implementing the plan – now is the time to move forward.
To launch their new name, they would like to invite you to an event with a difference.
They are inviting community groups to come along and find out more and take part in a Chicken Soup event! At the event community groups will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the room audience who will then vote on their chosen cause. The winners of the vote will be awarded a grant of £500.
All we are asking is that community groups are working on the themes of our development plan and the delivery is in our allocated area of East Cleveland. On the launch evening we will be taking pitches from those working on our themes 2, 3, 4 and 5, see below for information.
The date of the event is 1st October at Loftus Community Hub CIC – Home of the East Cleveland Good Neighbours Food bank (The old Loftus Social Club, West Road, Loftus, TS13 4RG)
Groups will discover more about the themes over the next few weeks via their social media pages but for now the themes are:
Also, on the evening there will be a market stall event to find out more about the themes and how community groups can get involved either as a delivery partner or to access funding.
What’s not to get involved with? …. This is your chance too network with other organisations in the local area, a chance to find out more about the plans for East Cleveland Good Neighbours – Connecting Communities moving forward and an opportunity for funding. We may even treat you all to some cake!!
