Barrow Island Big Local Trust

Posted by StreetSafe on October 24, 2011

News update

Barrow Island has been allocated £1m by the Big Lottery. This update will tell you what we’ve done, where we are now and what we are hoping to do next.

What we’ve done
• We wrote to every household on Barrow Island in May to tell you about the £1m.
• We had a drop in on 9th June to get suggestions from the community.
• We had a Streetsafe where people were asked for their views.
• We have had feedback from Barrow Island young people in primary and secondary schools.

Where are we now?
We have had a series of meetings with Barrow Island residents to review all the suggestions and comments.
From all the comments to date, your community priorities appear to be;
• a community centre for all age groups including activities for young people.
• an outdoor formal and informal sports and play.

What next?
Before we go any further, we need to report back to the Barrow Island community.
You are invited to an open meeting. This will be held at
• Dundalk St Centre, Dundalk Street
• Thursday 3rd November, 6.30pm
• Tea and coffee will be available from 6pm if you want an informal chat before the meeting
At the meeting, we will present a summary of what we have done and what you said.
We want you to:
• Confirm your priorities.
• Agree a Steering Group to take matters forward.
