Thurcroft Big Local

By Rachel Cole, Senior Projects Officer

On Saturday 24 February from 2pm until 6pm, Thurcroft Big Local held a celebratory event at the Thurcroft Hub to celebrate what has been achieved since 2012 when the Big Local started.  The event was very well attended by many residents in the village, members past and present and organisations who have been involved in the project over the years.  A buffet and refreshments were provided, there was free face painting for the children and a magician who entertained all ages of the crowd.  The walls were decorated the photographs from across the years and there was a slideshow showing other photographs that have been taken during the past 12 years.  Everyone received either a Thurcroft Big Local pen or torch keyring to keep.  It was a fantastic event and one to remember!

Although the project has now officially ended, I am certain that with the residents/volunteers committed to the village, the community will continue to benefit from the great things that the Big Local project started.
