Big Local is an exciting opportunity for local residents to use £1million to make a lasting positive difference to their communities, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and managed by Local Trust.
Big Local is not about government or national organisations determining how the money is spent; it is not about individual groups fixing their own problems without consulting widely with the local community and it is not about short term thinking - Big Local areas have 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for their area. Instead, Big Local puts the local community, and most importantly residents, firmly into the driving seat allowing them to identify local needs, take action and make a difference.
The Big Local Selby area encompasses three distinct areas. The area includes the largely residential areas of Flaxley Road estate to the north and Abbots Road estate to the south. It also includes the town centre of Selby.
On behalf of our school and wider community, Barwic Parade Community Primary School are committed to getting involved in the work of Selby Big Local in the hope that it can help our local community to develop and improve the lives of who live in and around the Abbots Road estate. If you'd like to learn more about this local project and how to get involved please visit the below website, speak to Miss Dixon or Mrs Grant.
