Supporting small scale local projects that create connections and bring people together.
We want to improve the appearance of Hadleigh Town Centre in Essex for the benefit of the local community and to make it a welcoming location for commuters. Help us install flower displays across the town centre and install even more light displays next Christmas (2018). This year we have already been successful in raising funding for 12 sets of Christmas street lights and wish to build on this success next year.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Hadleigh town centre is an island surrounded by the A13 dual carriage ways and has suffered from a lack of investment in recent years. We want to make more of a feature of the centre and improve the environment for the local community and commuters, showing that Hadleigh Essex is NOT just a main thoroughfare linking Southend-on-Sea to London
Steps to get it done:
We have in 4 months of 2017 been able to negotiate the purchase 12 sets of Christmas street lamp lights, including the installation and removal costs. This was all from local residential & business donations. Next year we plan to install the hardware to the lamp posts for hanging baskets and have extra street lamps converted to provide external electrical supplies for an extra 10 sets of Christmas street lamps. Our projects for 2018 involve applying for and gaining approval from Essex County Council. This is being applied for and once the lamp posts are structurally tested we expect to have approval; this can take up to 4 months based on our 2017 experience. If we only obtain permission to have a lower number of installations then our funding request can be reduced.
