Soudley- Blakeney Gateway
Blakeney, Gloucestershire 27 November 2013: Our Soudley-Blakeney Community Gateway Project has WON a £50,000 award from the BIG Lottery People's Millions scheme. Viewers voted for the project on ITV West Country Tuesday on 26 November.
The Soudley and Blakeney Community Gateway Project will re-establish an ancient pathway which runs between the two villages to bring the communities together and allow Soudley to share the facilities in Blakeney, ultimately increasing visitors to both villages which will support the local trade and provide local walkers with a great resource to promote community recreation and healthy walking for everyone. Blakeney Community Green teamed up with Soudley people to design a project to benefit everyone throughout the Soudley Valley and in the two interlinked settlements of Brains Green and Two Bridges.
We were so pleased that our supporters helped us gain the award and wish to thank everyone who voted, throughout Gloucestershire, the Forest of Dean , Blakeney and Soudley and other places in the Forest especially Lydney, Cinderford and Coleford.
Of course this is only the start. We are looking for massive practical assistance from volunteers and supporters as the project develops. If you can help, please join. Call or email Rose or Ewart us to join our supporters' voluntary work teams.
Find the project on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
Thankyou everyone who helped us win £50,000 for our local communities
