COMMUNITY WELLBEING PROJECTS
Projects related to crime reduction, community safety and reslience and wellbeing supported by BLNC
BLNC are supportive of the Neighbourhood Watch initiative and have been supporting the Network across Cleethorpes when we can. We provide a hot desk at the Community Hub for Glyn – the coordinator – and we’ll provide other support to the network when possible.
Big Local has purchased a static caravan at Thorpe Park in Cleethorpes which has become available for the late 2020 season. This will provide the opportunity for local North Cleethorpes residents who might otherwise be unable to take holidays to take a local break supported by Big Local.
In 2020, more than ever before, being ‘offline’ means being Digitally Disconnected from the world. Big Local is trying to identify local residents who need equipment, support, skills, advice and training to get the right equipment and training to get online to be able to connect to the outside world properly.
A “Super Shed” has begun construction at the rear of 82 Grimsby Road. The Shed will be for the community to use for DIY, crafting, repairing and more. Look out for new projects in the shed from early 2021.
In early 2017 Cleethorpes Chronicle ran a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to purchase 2 defibrillators. BLNC was then approached to match fund this so that additional defibrillators could be purchased with a couple of these being in the North Cleethorpes area. A total of eight defibrillators are now available across Cleethorpes.
BLNC funded the purchase costs for a mobile security camera in order to address crime and anti-social behaviour priorities identified from the community. The camera was arranged in conjunction with Police and the Safer and Stronger Partnership and was established mainly for the use of the North Cleethorpes area. The camera should have a working life of five years.
