WestRaven Big Local Group

Westwood and Ravensthorpe was one of 150 areas around the country selected to receive £1 million of investment from the Lottery.

Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) worked together with the steering group, made up of local residents and key stakeholders, to ensure consultation was undertaken. The purpose of this was to identify what could be done to make the area an even better place to live, and to develop a plan detailing how the money would be spent. 

The WestRaven Big Local group is now in the process of recruiting volunteers. PECT will be taking on the lease for the group for the first two years whilst we help them set up a social enterprise, recruit volunteers for the cafe and garden and help them put on activities in both.  

The café will be open later in 2016 and will serve healthy, tasty food that will be Fairtrade and locally sourced where possible. There will also be regular activities in the café such as coffee mornings and craft sessions.
