MP vis­its de­vel­op­ment site of new com­mu­nity cafe

WEST­WOOD

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

A lo­cal com­mu­nity-led or­gan­i­sa­tion has wel­comed MP Ste­wart Jack­son to view the de­vel­op­ment of a new com­mu­nity cafe in Hamp­ton Court. The cafe will serve lo­cally sourced meals and will also pro­vide a fa­cil­ity for res­i­dents to­gain­train­ing, qual­i­fi­ca­tions and a home­work club for chil­dren.

In 2012, West­wood and Raven­sthorpe were iden­ti­fied as one of four ar­eas in the Eastern re­gion in need of ex­tra com­mu­nity in­vest­ment, and was awarded a £1 mil­lion grant from the Big Lot­tery Fund to make im­prove­ments.

WestRaven Big Lo­cal is in place to rep­re­sent the res­i­dents of West­wood and Raven­sthorpe, work­ing in part­ner­ship with lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, and Cross Keys Homes to de­cide where the Big Lo­cal grant will be spent to make last­ing com­mu­nity im­prove­ments.

Com­ment­ing on the projects, Ste­wart Jack­son said “WestRaven Big Lo­cal’s fo­cus for com­mu­nity im­prove­ment is bril­liant news. It is im­por­tant to keep a strong com­mu­nity base and the com­mu­nity hub, new com­mu­nity café, and com­mu­nal gar­dens projects will see the West­wood and Ravens thorpe ar­eas go from strength to strength.”
