Welcome to the Whitley Bay 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Whitley Bay as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Whitley Bay with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers
The latest WBBL newsletter was in Spring 2018 - they have decided to stop producing these for a while and try other ways of connecting with the local community. This one included a resident's questionnaire where we asked residents for 3 suggestions about how to improve Whitley Bay, an update on the activities of the Big Local funded Whitley Bay Neighbourhood Caretakers, and an example of how a Whitley Bay Big Local Small Sparks grant has been used.
