North meets South Big Local

 

Our vision is for Marks Gate & North Chadwell Heath to become:

“An area that is liked and looked after, with healthy, welcoming community groups with a positive ‘can do’ attitude"

Current projects

This is about our plan to improve green spaces and outdoors facilities available in our area. So far we have transformed Tantony Green by creating a new play area, gym, and relaxation facilities. 

This is about bringing people in the community together to share experiences, enjoy activities and learn new skills. NMS seeks to leave behind healthy activity groups which recognise difference, social change and give opportunities to everyone.

 

This is about supporting individuals to maximise their potential. Through our work we hope a leave a legacy of a “can do” mentality within the Marks Gate & North Chadwell Heath by empowering residents to take responsibility for change rather than sitting back and letting others provide.

Our vision is for Marks Gate & North Chadwell Heath to become 

“An area that is liked and looked after, with healthy, welcoming community groups with a positive ‘can do’ attitude”

This is about enabling our community to have a voice and access to information, so they can continue to identify and refine their needs and take action to meet them. It remains our priority to improve opportunities for individuals and lift the morale of the community. We will work with activity leaders to ensure these continue once the programme finishes in 2026.
