Thinking BIG in The Willows, Hele, Watcombe & Barton

Our local Community Partnership is pleased to be planning an exciting event for residents of Watcombe, the Willows, Barton and Hele. Put the date in your diary: St Martin’s Hall on Barton Hill Road on Saturday 9 March from 10am – 1.00pm… for the BIG event!

As Community Builders, Theo and I meet so many local residents with fantastic goals, vision and ambition for our neighbourhoods. So, the BIG event is a space where we can share these dreams and think BIG together! We will identify our shared goals and common purpose to plan and drive positive change in our area.

  • From a simple idea, to a wildly ambitious plan, bring your thoughts along to share on the day. For example: Have an idea about sharing tools or resources? Setting up a community group? Improving a green space?
  • We will inspire each other, develop a path for change and celebrate the many assets we have. This fun event will include some fantastic entertainment, a BIG Exchange and a BIG (FREE) Buffet to run alongside your BIG Ideas!


Further details (including how to book) will follow soon. Look in your community noticeboards and on the Watcombe, Willows & Higher Barton Community Partnership Facebook page for updates. For now:

Save the date in your diary. See if you have anything you’d like to bring along for the BIG Exchange part of the event: things you no longer want – but no electrical goods, furniture or soft toys, sorry. Take away anything that catches your eye! No money changes hands! Great community sharing and recycling.

In other news, the lovely Scrabble & Games Social, hosted by Lindy, will be continuing to meet on the last Tuesday of the month at the Willow Tree pub. Starting from 10am and finishing around 12, we have been enjoying playing a game and having a chat. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Helen in advance.
