Big Local is an exciting community-led opportunity which provides residents in 150 areas across England with at least £1million to spend over the course of 10 years, to use in a way that makes a positive and lasting difference to their community. Funded by the Big Lottery and managed by Local Trust, Big Local targets areas across the UK which have been overlooked in terms of funding or resources in the past. In 2013, North Cleethorpes was selected as one of Big Local’s target areas. Since then, and with the support of local people, businesses and organisations, Big Local funding has, and continues to be, invested in a number of different areas. You can read about where Big Local Funding has been invested by visiting www.biglocalnorthcleethorpes.org.uk
