Big Local’s annual general meeting

The partnership that delivers Big Local in north east Hastings is inviting local people to come and celebrate its first year at its annual general meeting (AGM) at the Ore Centre tomorrow (Saturday) at 1.30pm.

This year the partnership has created a three-year plan to allocate some of the £1 million that Big Local areas have been awarded, delivered a small grants scheme and supported four local community centres to form a community interest company.

The partnership is formed of people living in the Big Local area around Ore and is elected each year by residents during the AGM. This year’s event will be a lively afternoon, with a cash draw, exhibits of projects funded by Big Local and a chance to visit Santa. The AGM also offers people a chance to give views on what would make the area a better place to live in. To join the partnership, or for more information about the AGM, contact Jan Papworth at or call 01424 723775. Visit
