Our next deadline for funding is 16th September 2020. We have free online workshops on 15th & 23rd July. --------------- Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees. Local people have asked us to do more to recognise this. We should all have a stake in the places where we live, work or visit. So we’re celebrating our places by encouraging more great ideas. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact by bringing a place together. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started. We want you to feel able to influence your community’s future. Please get involved and help the movement to grow - pitch your ideas, back any projects you like and let other people know. Growing Great Places is all about bringing people and places together. It’s part of our work to grow a stronger local democracy here in Kirklees, from the ground up. If you have any questions please contact: GrowingGreatPlaces@kirklees.gov.uk

Woodland Activity Equipment
Woodland Activity Equipment joined Growing Great Places1 month ago

While our activity is constrained at the moment we're planning for the future. During these challenging times we are all experiencing a situation that can adversely affect our mental and physical well-being. For some of our beneficiaries this 'headspace' was already a factor in their lives and for others, such as the children who join us with our holiday clubs and school visits, we are all recognising that open space and freedom is a very necessary and important part of the human condition. Your generous pledge will allow us to buy equipment to support our award winning Social Enterprise in delivering its mission: to improve the mental and physical well-being of children, young people and adults. We will buy appropriate climbing equipment to scale the big trees of our ancient woodland site; a zip-wire to fly through the air; hammocks, sleeping bags and tarps to experience the night time feel of the forest and professional training and equipment to do all this in absolute safety.
