There is a saying that goes “we do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing”. Well at Big Local we felt it was time to roll back the years a bit and so from March onwards we will be hosting a table top games club for adults of any age to join. We’ll be breaking out a load of classic games from cards and dominoes to draughts and board games. Ludo seems to be a popular request and we’re happy to play whatever! The sessions will be hosted by our super friendly volunteers and they’ll be refreshments served up alongside. There are also rumours of us getting a Carrom Board which is a traditional Asian game kind of like a playing pool with draught pieces. We can’t wait to try it and Mr Khan one of our volunteers is going to teach us. Sessions are free to attend with only a small donation asked for the refreshments that are served up.

Our Partnership of local residents has been busy over the last 12 months reviewing our existing improvement plan for the area and informing itself on what the priorities should be for our new 3 year plan.
