We have seen more than 900 community groups from all over England do amazing things to transform their neighbourhoods - creating playgrounds, sports facilities, gardens, allotments, public artworks and other projects from the Scilly Isles to the Scottish borders.
More than 9 million people have benefited from Community Spaces projects, almost 8 million hectares of land have been improved and around 85,000 trees have been planted.
Independent evaluation of Community Spaces has shown that groups are now more confident about taking on new projects to build on the skills we have been able to develop together.
Any remaining queries from groups who have received grants from the programme should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting the name of the programme – Community Spaces – and the name and Unique Reference Number of your project.
But that not need be the end of things…
Groundwork, which has managed Community Spaces on behalf of the Big Lottery Fund, continues to work with communities across the UK, changing places and changing lives in cities, towns and villages like yours.
We’d love to keep in touch with you from time to time, but if you’d like to be taken off our mailing list please email email@example.com. You can also stay up to date with Groundwork news through our website – www.groundwork.org.uk – or via Twitter – @groundworkUK – and Facebook – www.facebook.com/groundworkuk. There is a Groundwork Trust in your area, offering local inspiration for local projects.
You have been part of an amazing programme and we hope your involvement has inspired you to continue making a difference.
