The deadline for our next funding round is Tuesday the 24th of March, see the 'About' tab for more information 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

We are going to create floral displays and cultivate lost and forgotten areas of the village to make something marvelous for village residents and passing public to enjoy. We are entering as a village into the RHS Britain in Bloom project in the Yorkshire category. It is important for us to encourage keeping the village tidy of weeds and litter at the same time and build on civic pride. We hope to use as many sustainable, recycled and reclaimed products as possible and grow as many plants and vegetables as possible from seed. We want groups, businesses, residents of all ages and abilities to join in with whatever they can do and with however much time they can give. We want to encourage bugs near to our beds and plants with the use of companion planting and construction of a bug hotel. Water butts and hoses will be bought made out of recylced products and placed around the village for all to help with watering. We have will be working with schools, groups, the WI, church etc to achieve
