Community Hub

The Big Local Community Hub is now open. Visit us at 82 Grimsby Road Cleethorpes.


We’re about halfway through our 10 year, £1 million, Big Lottery funded initiative to invest in North Cleethorpes to make it a better place to live and work.

We’re helping to regenerate buildings, places and open spaces. We’re supporting local people young and old.  We’re encouraging participation through events and activities.  We’re encouraging ideas and supporting those who want North Cleethorpes to evolve.
