Welcome to the Hanwell '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 Hanwell 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 Hanwell with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
HBL organised a friendly tour of the local area. Joanna Dudzinska from 'Talking and Exploring' led the walk interacting with the participants and encouraging their interaction and sharing their memories, knowledge and recommendations. The participants were grateful to HBL for providing an activity that brings people together, breaks isolation, encourages interaction between those on the walk and those met on route. Walking outdoors in a group and being mindful of the surroundings is a simple way to make people feel better, especially after the difficulties of the recent years. The participants enjoyed the walk, and many stayed on for a further chat at lunch at the local pizza place, L'oro di Napoli.
