Community Sparks

We’re making our whole community even more vibrant and welcoming to all.

We do this by connecting people and local groups and supporting people to shine. We’d love you to get involved. There are all sorts of ways you can bring your special sparkle to East Coseley Big Local. You could:

Be an encourager: support people in Coseley who are starting community projects. Listen to their ideas and help them connect their activities to things and people you know about. A great way to get started is at one of our project design sessions. (Time commitment: 3 hours once every 2 or 3 months.)

Be a friendly host: welcome people who come along to Big Local Forum events or to our open house sessions. A warm greeting and a smile make so much difference. We really value friendly hosts who can help anyone feel at ease, ready to be their best. (Time commitment: varies – can be anything from weekly to once every few months for a couple of hours at a time.)

Support Big Local communications: we can create oodles of opportunities with people who have a flair for graphic design, photography, video making or copywriting. We really don’t mind if you are a student seeking a project to get involved in, if it’s your hobby, or if it’s what you do all the time and just can’t get enough of it!  We’d also love to hear from people who would be up for delivering the Coseley Grapevine on their street a few times a year. (Time commitment: anything from one-off activities to becoming and ongoing member of the communications team.)

Talk up Coseley online: share photos of things you love about Coseley on Instagram with #CoseleyLife. Tell your friends on Facebook about the fabulous things people are doing in Coseley and like the Coseley Life Facebook Page. Follow us on twitter @East_Coseley, retweet Big Local news and tweet about what you love about #CoseleyLife.  (Time commitment: a few seconds whenever the mood takes you!)

Come out and about with us: as the weather gets warmer we’ll be popping up in parks and all sorts of places around Coseley to talk to people and let them know about Big Local. Our outreach team would love your company and you can learn all about Big Local and talk to people about it. (Time commitment: varies – can be anything from weekly to once a month for a couple of hours at a time.)

Bring a helping pair of hands: we organise whole community events and activities, such as the Big Event and litter picks. Helping hands are always welcome, we don’t mind if they belong to toddlers, teenagers or grandparents. (Time commitment: one-off activities for a few hours, or whatever you can commit to.)
