The Community sub group is all about involving local people in building community spirit in Church Hill, from working with partners to put on the Summer Community Day to the Christmas Carols, providing money advice and local training, to asking residents what they want and building it in to the Local Plan.

Also on offer soon will be Introduction to IT classes with drop in sessions for people who have no access to the internet at home. Money Advice and a new Credit Union, so keep a look out on the noticeboard in the shopping centre or browse this website to find out what else Church Hill Big Local Partnership is doing.

Having consulted with groups such as Reddishare and Mendip House residents, our group is planning a number of courses such as basic computer literacy and arts and crafts. We also hope to arrange a shopping club so that residents can make the most of bulk buying and shopping on-line.

We also run a weekly social group called Young at Heart, details can be found here.

Green Spaces

Church Hill has some great green spaces that very few people know of, we seek to raise awareness of these and encourage the community to become friends of these spaces to bring the community together.

We have carried out and completed an in-depth and detailed consultation with the residents of Church Hill who have given their views on our plan and ideas.

Bomford Hill is Church Hill's current largest under-used green open space located in the North of the district, it used to be a fantastic place to take a stroll, and sit to view our great town from the top, with the chance to learn what was nearby from the Toposcope. It's also a great place to study nature.

Moon's Moat is a designated historic landmark and the site of a former medieval moated house in Church Hill, there is a residents group called Moon's Moat Conservation Group with whom we are working to improve this landmark for the enjoyment of everyone. See the work we have been doing here.

We'd like to see Church Hill have some fantastic green spaces that everyone can access and enjoy.

Walking routes now launched details here

Children and Young People

Our community consultation identified that residents wanted
more play resources for children. Although a few larger play areas were installed, many residents feel that the current play provision is inadequate, especially in Church Hill South.

Our group includes local parents, grandparents and professionals all of whom have an interest in creating more opportunities and activities for local children and young people to become involved with in the Church Hill area.

Over the first 2 years of the plan, our work based on public consultation, has resulted in young people in Church Hill benefiting from a gymnastics club and Holiday football camps, with more to come soon.
