Grange Big Local Newsletter

December 2018


In the new year we are starting
drop in sessions in the community -
please come and meet our Community Engagement Manager Claire and ask any questions
East Finchley Library on
Monday 4th February 9-11am

Check out the short film of our Fun Palace back in October. Thanks again to everyone who took part - who can you spot in the film?!

We are planning another big community festival for 2019. Get in touch if you would like to be involved
Barnwood Gardening Event

We had a great day at the Barnwood community gardening day at the end of November - we planted 2,018 bulbs! Thanks to everyone who took part.

You may have seen work is continuing on the site to build some pathways and develop it into a useable green space at the heart of our community. GBL has been working with Barnet Council on this project, and is now looking at how the space can be managed in future.

Do get in contact if you are interested in being involved.
Thank you for all your donations to the Grange Estate Fire Fund. Our community has raised over £7,500 for families affected by the fire - your support is greatly appreciated.
Season's Greetings Everyone!


Grange Big Local has had a good year - one of the highlights being a great Fun Palace community festival in October. Thanks to everyone who has been involved and volunteered their time to improve our area this year.

GBL has supported lots of local organisations to deliver valuable services in our community throughout 2018 - from youth support work with Art Against Knives, to a local advice in East Finchley with Citizens Advice Barnet.

We have encountered some delays with some of our projects - including playground redevelopment and the underpass project. But we are hopeful we can make some progress on these in the new year - and will need your help!

Drop in sessions in 2019

Please join our GBL drop in sessions in the new year - we would like to hear your ideas and to share information about our projects with you - and let you know how you can input.

We would like to build our team to make our ambitious plans reality, so if you have considered getting involved, please let us know.

If you have any questions, drop us a line at
Did you know? We are on Twitter, Instagram and have a group and page on Facebook. Give us a follow to keep updated...
