Partnership Endorsed

Partnership Endorsed

We are pleased to announce that the Grassland Hasmoor... Partnership has recently been endorsed by Local Trust.  The Partnership (formerly Interim Steering Group) will guide the overall direction of Grassland Hasmoor...  ensuring a diverse range of residents and local organisations continue to be actively involved.

The structure of the Partnership and its engagement mechanisms have been developed to allow the community to take ownership of the programme whilst benefiting from the support and experience of a range of other organisations as required.

Anyone from within the community can attend its open Forum or Working Groups, whilst the Partnership Board will seek to ensure that it has as many representatives as possible, from a variety of social and skills backgrounds to fill the available spaces of voting members on the Board. The Partnership Board will ratify the Working Groups’ progress to ensure the delivery of our vision and engage with appropriate service providers for help which requires expertise.

The majority of members will be residents, but the Partnership will also include people from local organisations that are involved with the area as well. Membership of the Partnership will change over time in response to our activities and it will be reviewed at least annually.

Launchpad Liftoff...

Launchpad Lift Off...

Almost 100 local residents turned out to find out about plans to spend the £1m allocated to the area at the Launchpad event on 29th November at Hasland Village Hall.  Attendees were able to see the delivery plan (the Big Local Plan), which projects are in the pipeline for Year 1, and hear about how the Partnership will work and how to get involved, whilst enjoying pie and peas for lunch.

Working group members were on hand to showcase the activities they are already involved in, talk to residents about future project ideas and listen to their ideas for spending some of the money.

Lucky winner of the prize draw, Mrs V, was "absolutely delighted" with the £100 shopping voucher.

Grassland Hasmoor... Chair, Stephen Wright, said "It was great to see so many local people showing an interest in the plans for the future and to talk to them in an informal setting about their hopes and aspirations for the area."

"The Big Local Plan will now be submitted to the Local Trust and, once approved, the £1m funding will begin to be released, hopefully early in the New Year. Watch this space!"

Community Groups Event

Community Groups Showcase

Local residents turned out on Sunday 7th September to support the Community Groups Showcase Event at Grassmoor Community Centre.  As well as chatting to stall holders about activities in their area, they were able to sit and enjoy a free cream tea in the sunshine. 

Organised by Links CVS, the event was an opportunity for groups from Hasland and Grassmoor to show local people and other groups what they do and to get organisational and funding advice from Links CVS, who were also offering help to anyone wishing to set up a new group.

Event organiser Sandra said "17 groups attended and there was a lively buzz of people talking to each other and networking."

Grassland Hasmoor... volunteers were also on hand to talk to people about the Big Local Plan and to get them to think about the types of projects that will deliver the vision for the area and how they can get involved.

You can see the Plan and find out more at the Grassland Hasmoor... Launchpad at Hasland Village Hall on Saturday 29th November 1pm - 4pm.
