Together we can make things happen
A really good way to get involved is to come to a ‘First Saturday Breakfast’ this is a great place to meet your neighbours, share some food and find out what’s going on. Click the button below to find out where the next one is.
If you have an idea, be it for a new local business, a regular board game afternoon, an event, or a complete re-invention of a community building, the Marsh and Micklefield team can help you to develop it.
We may also be able to help you access some of the Big Local funds.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”

Residents and groups can access funds of up to £500 from the Marsh and Micklefield team, and larger amounts though a process of consulting the wider community. Support with developing ideas is also available.
