Little Hulton Big Local (LHBL) vision is “to Unite Little Hulton as a Community and to Enhance Local Peoples Wellbeing.”

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.

A main message from the community was that Little Hulton has great people! 

“…well done on such a fantastic project! LH needs to play to its strengths and have its own identity, we have lower house prices than Walkden and great local history. There are job opportunities down Lester Road (PH Group) and just across the border at Logistics North and there are good shopping facilities. Transport links are good with the M60 close by and regular buses. All your priorities are equally as valid I can't choose any to be less than the others”

(Quote from local resident)

We have spent some of our investment, Expenditure to 30th June 2018 was a total of £334,234.

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.

To date our key achievements have been:

  • Developing a representative functioning partnership board
  • Bringing reindeer to Little Hulton Precinct to the delight of children and adults
  • Developing a Community Hub at the heart of Little Hulton
  • Developed a successful small grants process which supports both local community groups and business start-ups
  • Our Youth Unity task group working with partners to develop a Youth Hub at Little Hulton Library

Community Hub Training

LHBL have moved into a larger Community Hub at number 27-29 in the precinct, which is open Monday - Thursday each week. A variety of courses and activities are run from the Hub each week including a Thursday evening craft group, a Thursday morning games group and a Wednesday Coffee Morning.

Events

We are currently working with other local groups in Little Hulton on Halloween and Christmas events.

Young People

Through the hard work of Youth Unity, a Thursday night youth session was launched at Little Hulton Library in March 2017 to offer young people a warm, safe place to go where they can choose to take part in activities and gaming, have someone to talk to or just chill out. The youth club is now open on Thursdays and Tuesdays for younger children.

What Next?

Little Hulton Big Local is looking to make a considerable investment during the next three years...

So it’s vital that we begin to explore some key questions and address a number of challenges. The Little Hulton Big Local Board will therefore look at these key questions:

  • What happens once we have spent the million?
  • When will we be ready to become an independent organisation?
  • How can we raise additional income?
  • What will our legacy be?

Whatever the challenges over the next three years will be, the Board of Little Hulton Big Local are 100% committed to using the Big Local Investment to make a difference to the amazing community that is Little Hulton.
