Latest video from Big Local. This time Green Influencers and Reynold Family Hub

The latest in our series of videos covering the work of Big Local North Cleethorpes visits the garden at Reynolds Family Hub, and watches the local children hard at work tending to the outside space they love.

Big Local North Cleethorpes has long supported the team at Reynolds Family Hub to make more of their outside space. Alan Johnson worked tirelessly to help tidy up the beds and pond and get the kids interested in planting and growing. Hangout and Big Local invested in the sand pit and sleepers and more, and of course the team at Reynolds themselves have supported the children throughout to make the most of the garden.

In recent years a Green Influencers group has been running at the Family Hub and kids of all ages have been helping outside, making it their own and picking and eating what they’ve grown!

Green Influencers was a national programme that VANEL delivered across North East Lincolnshire and in the Big Local area of North Cleethorpes there have been several groups running for a while now. As well as the groups at Reynolds there are also Green Influencers groups at Beacon, St Peter’s Primary and on the community allotment up at Carr Lane.

The funded Green Influencers programme has come to an end, but VANEL and Big Local continue our support for the local groups under the Green Influencers brand and this new group at Reynolds for 2+ year olds is at full strength!

Sam Smith from VANEL leads the Green Influencers programme with help from Lauren and now Rob. Any questions contact Sam via or check out the Facebook page at
