About Warwickshire Together

The deadline for the current funding round is the 5th of November! We want to see our towns grow and be vibrant communities supporting the local economy. Warwickshire is a diverse and exciting mix of large towns, market towns and small local towns and villages each with their own unique offer to businesses, communities and visitors. What they all have in common is a desire to be vibrant and healthy; working to be thriving economic and social hubs for its residents, businesses and visitors. We want to help our businesses and residents come together to develop new ideas, channel energy and creativity and ultimately grow the local economy of our towns. We want to make local places special. Places that are distinctive. Places you want to explore. If you have an idea on how to improve and transform your town centre then why not add it to the movement and garner support. Reach out and find other like minded people who could help you develop your idea and deliver your vision.

Smith Street Cycle Hub
Smith Street Cycle Hub joined Warwickshire Together1 month ago

<b>Planning permission will be applied for once the crowdfunding and design process is complete. We will be working closely with the council to finalise the designs and will keep you updated on our progress.</b> Independent Businesses #OnSmithStreet and local Cycling group Warwick Amateur Cycling Club are committed to raising the profile of our area and address a number of environmental challenges we currently face, with congestion worsening the environmental conditions locally. We'd like our street to be healthier, safer and cycle friendly, and we feel providing bike storage is an important part of this objective. By installing these unique pieces of street furniture at each end of Smith Street, we hope cycling will be planted firmly in the mind of local road users. To give our street a focal point we'd like to Customise our Cycle Stands to promote our unique history and local Identity, and we'd like to get our local community involved in the design process.

Restoring the Newtown
Restoring the Newtown joined Warwickshire Together1 month ago

The Newtown Centre is a well used and highly valued community asset right next to Nuneaton town centre. Each week we welcome over 500 people. For a building nearing 60 years old it's not doing too bad, but it's become tired around the edges; in October we were awarded £73500 funding to refurbish the toilets, makeover the kitchen & create a new lounge. This will enable us to share cooking skills, feed more people, host more relaxed & informal social & learning opportunities. But it also needs a roof that doesn't leak, flat paths & we'd love to create a safe outdoor space, making the most out of our front garden. Working with local crafts people & gardeners we will create a large social seating area, with plenty of sensory planting, possibly even space to grow simple foods. We want the Newtown to be the best place it can be - welcoming existing users & new people too, we've got lots of exciting plans for new services that can be offered, we just need the right space to do it.

Wings: Kingsbury Community Room
Wings: Kingsbury Community Room joined Warwickshire Together1 month ago

As an organisation we have taken on a premises in need of TLC, we will be running events, workshops and activities through our CIC to enhance the communities lives. Our project will be in several stages, the first of which is our large community room which currently has no flooring and needs a paint and some small electrical work. In this space we will be running workshops for wellbeing such as Mental Health awareness sessions, healthy eating programmes and life coaching. We will be using the space to carry out our Community Time which is daily activities each created around the five areas of health and wellbeing to combat rural isolation and bring people together. We will also run our Youth of Wings, a free youth club supporting local children, giving them a place to come together, take part in activities to encourage social responsibility and support their mental health. The NHS will also be using the space to run breastfeeding clinics and post natal depression workshops.
