Big Local listening campaign

"1000 Conversations"

7th July - 30th September 2015

We want to have 1000 conversations with you as residents and supporters of the Big Local area and we would like you to shape and lead conversations around important spaces in the community. For example, Tewkesbury Road, the old BMX track, St. Peter's Church, Elmfield Park and so much more. There's never be a better time to get involved.

This is how we'll get in touch:

Street Visits

We are getting to know our neighbours the good old fashioned way by knocking on your door. We will be dropping by during the summer holidays, look out for the Big Local badge when we come to your door.

Big Local Resident Forums

How would you like £1 million to make a lasting effect on the community?”

Join the resident’s forum today and have a cuppa and a slice of cake while you are at it!

Activities for young children too during the daytime forums over the Summer Holidays.
When? 7th July & 4th August 2015

Where? The Rock, St Peter’s Church

What time? 10.30am - 12noon or 7.30 - 9pm

Big Local Picnic in the Park

When? 15th August 2015

Where? Elmfield Park

What time? 12 noon - 4pm

Based on the success of our May Bank Holiday Fun day in the Moors, we’d like you to join us for a picnic in the park. Take part with a stall, have fun and have your say, there are a lot of exciting new opportunities we can’t wait to share with you!

Would you like to support any of these events?

Elmfield Park Update

On the 29th January 2015, 114 people signed a petition to put a path in Elmfield Park. In response, Big Local in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council will put in a path between the Gardner’s Lane entrance and the entrance towards Denman Avenue.

There will also be adjustments to the Elmfield Road entrance and the Marsh Lane entrance to combat some of the issues resident’s face with muddiness in the winter. The work is taking place now and it is hoped that the improvements will be finished by the start of the Summer Holidays.

How much will it cost?

Big Local are putting £9,200 towards this project, any other costs will be covered by Cheltenham Borough Council.

Who signed the petition?

We had 114 responses, 66 responses were from the Big Local area, 46 responses were people who lived outside the area but frequently use the space. The remaining 2 responses did not specify where they came from.

How can I get involved?

Big Local want more people like you, with an interest in the future of the St. Peter’s & The Moors. Lets make this "An inspiring community of supportive neighbours".

What other improvements would you like to see in your Big Local Area?” join the conversation…

Visit a resident forum, or get in touch to see what else we will support in the local area.

We look forward to hearing from you.
