Please describe your community project
An event to bring together stakeholders for Castlefield - land owners, constructors, developers, business, local authority - to make pledges to commit to activities to support the work of local community groups and residents/workers. With the aim of getting tactical help plus buy-in to a long term vision for the area.
Who have you been collaborating with?
Castlefield Forum - this is their project but we have been supporting and extended the reach to ensure the outputs impact all parts of the wider Castlefield area. It has also helped improve relations with Castlefield Forum so we're sharing ideas and resources. I don’t feel like I’m doing a lot but maybe that’s a self-perception thing about how much energy or time I spend on it. I’m inspired by all the other good stuff going on. Juliet’s and Mo’s stuff, Joanne’s tour. That’s a kick to me.
Why does this matter to you and your community/neighbours?
Bridges the gap between the 'two' bits of Castlefield. Makes those investing in the area more accountable for giving back to the area
What would you like your project to achieve?
A community of residents and businesses who will take pride in the area by coming together to achieve this
It's going to start in august! I will update you on the launch and progress.
