Executive Directors Update

Hi, as promised last time there is some positive news to report this month.

From Monday 7th October 2002 New Deal will be located on the first floor of 12-14 Burngreave Road in the premises of Burngreave Community Action Trust.

I am grateful to BCAT for making this space available to us and am sure it will further strengthen the relationship we have with them.

On the 14th October four local residents begin their employment as Regeneration Apprentices with Burngreave New Deal for Communities and they will work closely with the New Deal Theme Managers to develop and deliver projects in response to the aspirations of local people.

Other projects that have been supported by New Deal are:

  • Sports Development: which will increase the participation of young people in recreation and maximise the use of local facilities.
  • Pitsmoor Adventure Playground: which has now re-opened with new play facilities and significant improvements to those that already existed.
  • Green Environment: which will employ and train local people to maintain and improve parks and green spaces within Burngreave.

There will be many more important, interesting and fun initiatives being developed in the future. If you want to be involved in deciding what they are please contact BCAT on 272 8008 or New Deal on 279 6932 and we will tell you how you can shape the future of Burngreave.

Since I have been in Burngreave I have met with many people, groups and organisations in the area, however, I am aware that there will be people who have still not had a chance to meet with me to express their views and opinions about Burngreave New Deal for Communities. Therefore, for the next three months I am putting aside one day each week to meet members of the community, this will be an ideal opportunity for people, organisations and groups to speak openly, honestly and directly to me regarding:

  • Your experiences with Burngreave New Deal for Communities
    Any concerns or issues you may have
    Any item(s) you feel the programme should prioritise

If you would like to meet with me, and have not already done so, then please do not hesitate to contact Jane Anthony on 279 7161 who will be happy to arrange this with you.

John Clark,
Executive Director
