The Residents Stories

Our Bigger Story is a multimedia evaluation which aims to record change in Big Local areas, and understand how those changes come about and how they can be sustained. Residents are telling their stories of change over a ten year period, through a range of media including animation and film.

Growing Together Community Gardening Club

Growing Together Big Local works across five distinct areas. In 2017, they opened the Brookside Community Hub and a community gardening club has developed. The increased activity at the hub and the improvement to the physical environment around the hub have improved residents feelings about where they live. This short film tells the story of the community garden.
