Welcome to the Bountagu '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 Bountagu 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 Bountagu with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Our Over 50s volunteer team have joined forces with Bread n Butter CIC and St Peter’s Church to keep the Lunch Club spirit thriving during lockdown. They’ve been preparing and delivering meals once a week to some of our elderly residents, providing delicious food, and a weekly hello. It’s given a chance for our volunteers to stay in touch with people we’d usually see every week or month at our coffee mornings, lunch clubs and afternoon choirs, and with some of our most isolated neighbours.
