Little Hulton Big Local

""

Little Hulton Big Local has one million pounds to invest to achieve its vision.

We believe we have made a good start in delivering our vision and priorities and that we are now on a launch pad to achieve even more in Little Hulton.

""

How much of the million has been spent?

Total Spend to 30th September 2019 was £666,013.

Plans for how we invest our million pounds are contained in our community plan. In 2017 we produced a new three-year plan, you can read it here. 

The work of Little Hulton Big Local is overseen by a partnership board that meets on the first Monday of every month. You can view the minutes from these meetings at the bottom of this page. 51% of board members must be Little Hulton residents. We always welcome new residents to join our board, if you are interested please contact us.

Our Priorities and Achievements

We have been working on our three original priorities:

  • Community Centre / Hub
  • Young People
  • Employment and Wellbeing

We have also identified three new priorities through our community consultation in the lead up to us writing out new plan in 2017. These are:

  • Activities that support people’s mental health, happiness and wellbeing
  • The environment
  • Activities for older people / intergenerational activities

The Future

A million pounds is a huge amount of money but it won’t last forever and Little Hulton Big Local wants to create a legacy.

A physical legacy in the shape of a re-developed Peel Park Pavilion. We believe that by developing the Pavilion this will be a catalyst that will change the way people view and use the park which will in turn create a proud community asset.

More importantly we also want to create a vehicle to ensure a resident led organisation continues grow and thrive in Little Hulton. We want local people to continue to have a voice so we can attract new money into Little Hulton to develop the priorities and aspirations Little Hulton Big Local identified through our continuous community consultation.

CommUNITY Little Hulton

Community Little Hulton

To achieve this, we have established a new Charity ‘Community Little Hulton’ which is membership CIO.

Community Little Hulton’s Mission is to inspire today’s youth and bring the community together to enhance everybody’s wellbeing.

Community Little Hulton brings together and builds upon the Community Hub and Youth Unity elements of Little Hulton Big Local and relocates them to a new location within Little Hulton, Peel Park Pavilion.

We are currently in advanced discussions with Salford City Council over a lease for the Pavilion which will be held by Community Little Hulton.

Registered Charity 1183894

Community Little Hulton is a new Charity that has been formed in Little Hulton by local residents.

The charity has been established to secure the future of our Youth Unity Youth Club and secure funding to redevelop our local park Peel Park.

Every week 100+ young people attend our Youth Unity Youth Club. We offer somewhere for the young people to meet their friends, try new activities and receive support from trusted adults.

In the last few months young people have completed an up cycling project, created a dance performance, learnt more about recycling and learnt how to produce healthy meals on a budget.

Our current fund raising target is an additional £10,000 to run the Youth Club till the end of March 2021.

Our Youth Club currently meets in Little Hulton Library but the building has no outdoor space which limits the activities we are able to offer our young people.

We want to create a new building on the park by extending the existing pavilion to create a community hub for both our young people and the boarder community.

We are currently drawing up detailed plans for the building and have secured funding to build a new BMX facility on the park and funding to create a natural play area.

In total we need secure between £400,000 to £500,000 to bring about our aspirations for the park for an extended pavilion, natural play area, growing area and BMX facility.

We have started with £200,000 from Little Big Local towards redeveloping the Peel Park and have secured another £50,000 to create the BMX track, £25,000 for a natural play area and we have launched Buy a Brick sponsorship fund and which so far has secured another £9,000 from local business and residents towards the project.

During the 2020 we will be working hard to secure the funding to create an amazing for ever home on Peel Park and ensure our youth club keeps going into the future.

We also want to build upon Little Hulton’s recent achievement of being awarded an Age-Friendly Achievement Award with Merit by the Mayor of Greater Manchester. We want to ensure the new Peel Park building is an intergenerational facility and we believe the new café of the park will be key to achieving this. For example, the Café will become the new home for our craft group and small shop which sells locally made crafts, including handmade cards
