Nominate your village

(Posted 01.02.18) The Communications Officer of Team Big things, Michelle Leadbitter-Allen, writes:

 

I am developing an exciting, new programme for a major UK Broadcaster and we need the help of art clubs, centres and enthusiasts to get the word out. The idea behind the show is that we will be funding numerous public art projects around the country and we want the public to nominate their own village to win the chance of creating a new landmark for their community. The unique process will see established artists working with the local people to create large pieces of public art that have specific meaning to their community.

We would like residents of small towns and villages to get in touch and tell us what makes their hometown so special. Does it have a rich history? Is something or someone famous associated with it? Do they have interesting traditions? Has the community fallen on hard times and is in need of reminding people about  how special it really is? What is their unique story? The most important thing is that the town has a strong sense of community and a commitment to the project, as this is a journey they will all go on together with the goal to create a legacy piece of public art that generations will be proud of.

 

A flyer has been produced and a member of the team will be in touch with any applicants they wish to progress further.

WHITEHILL BORDON REGENERATION

 

Have your say

(Posted 14.02.18) Residents of Whitehill & Bordon will have the opportunity to have their say and contribute to the regeneration of the town from garrison to prosperous green and healthy town by filling in one of two surveys that will be released by East Hampshire District Council. They will be posted through the doors of randomly selected households in Whitehill & Bordon Everyone who fills in the survey will be contributing to the future of the town and will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 worth of high street shopping vouchers.

One of the surveys will give residents the opportunity to say what they like about living in Whitehill & Bordon, how they feel about the changes and what is important for them in the future. It will allow EHDC to gauge the quality of life in the town, as well as the impact the regeneration is having and how satisfied people are with the changes. The survey will ask residents how satisfied they are with the economic development, education, health provision, environment, services on offer and public safety in the town. The results of the survey will help EHDC to reflect the residents’ views to the partners involved in the regeneration to make sure they are all focussing their resources in the right places and achieving the best outcomes for the town in the future.

The second survey has been designed as part of the Healthy New Town (HNT) programme. The town is one of only 10 NHS England Healthy New Town demonstrator sites in the UK. The aim of the programme is to help residents to live healthy, active and independent lives and have the care they need in the right place and at the right time. The questions will give EHDC an indication of the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of residents so it can assess the impact the HNT programme has had on them so far and will allow it to tailor projects in the future. 

Cllr Ferris Cowper, Portfolio Holder for Whitehill & Bordon, said: “We are giving residents the opportunity to help us fine-tune the things we should be focussing our attention on … We will listen to the results of the surveys and take action to make it an even better town for its existing and future residents.

Some residents of Whitehill & Bordon can expect to see one of the two surveys come through their letterboxes from Friday 16 February. There will be a link on the survey if people would rather complete it online. The closing date for the survey is Friday 30 March.
