Welcome to Marsh & Micklefield Big Local

Last summer we started the BOOMMfutures project. As part of BOOMMfutures young people in M+M are supported to create their own projects and events and given a budget to make them happen! If you are 10 - 18 and living in M+M text Amber and Michelle on 07904 705220, and they will tell you how to get involved. Their last event (April 2018) as part of the new BOOMM in Bloom campaign, was a gardening project to create a community plot in the Micklefield library garden. It was a fantastic event and a few pictures can be found on the BOOMM Futures page if you'd like to take a look. What we're interested in now though is people in the community who would like to help maintain this plot. If you're interested please get in touch with Friends of Micklefield Library via facebook.

We're also working on....

Redesigning our website!

If you have any thoughts or ideas about how we can improve our site and create a community page that residents of Marsh and Micklefield would be proud of please let us know. Also, if you have any suggestions about features you would like our site to have or would like to answer our questionnaire, please get in touch and share your thoughts with alison@mandmbiglocal.org. Some suggestions we've had so far to get the ball rolling are:

A community events calendar to be updated by you, this can include all local events going on in the Marsh and Micklefield area, not just our events.

A heritage page, this could show how the local area has changed throughout the ages to show what used to be here and what's here now.

A Community Champion page, this will be a place for you to praise unrecognised heros in the local community.

While we can't guarantee we will use all of your ideas we want everyone to have a say to create the best website we can for the local community.

The Marsh & Micklefield Big Local is one of 150 projects across England to be given at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.

At a local level in Wycombe Marsh and Micklefield the programme is managed by the Marsh and Micklefield Big Local Partnership – a group of residents and supportive people from other local organisations. The partnership has consulted with the wider community and produced a community plan which identifies three main areas of focus.

1. Improve Community Cohesion   2. Raise Aspiration for all   3. Enhance Educational Engagement

Community Development Grants

The Community Investment Fund is an initiative by Marsh and Micklefield Big Local to encourage and support groups and projects which benefit the residents of Marsh and/or Micklefield. We do this by awarding grants where we consider that the activities will make a positive, lasting difference.

We look to support a wide range of projects that fit in with our objectives of improving community cohesion, raising aspiration for all and enhancing educational engagement.

Funding is available from £500 to £10,000.

Applications are considered three times each year. Any applications received after the closing date will be considered in the next round of applications.

September – closing date for applications is 31st August

January – closing date for application is 31st December

May – closing date for applications is 30th April

Marsh and Micklefield Big Local also operate a Community Chest Grant scheme for smaller grants up to £500, which unlike the Community Investment Fund applications, are considered as and when received.
