Featured noticeboard: Great LeverPosted: June 26, 2012
It’s a noticeboard which emerged from a community’s desire to have a newsletter, we caught up with the creator of the Great Lever noticeboard to find out more.
First I asked Gary to tell us a little about himself and his interests
I am an asset-based community builder with Forever Manchester, working in Great Lever. My role is to connect people together to share the skills, knowledge and ideas in the community, to build trust and happiness. Positive thinking! I’m interested in how social media can positively bring people together and I am interested in anything told by a person with passion….just have to discover it first.
Why did you set it up and who is involved?
I work to connect residents, groups, organisations and services together. This means I find out what is happening, and many people had said how they wish there was a newsletter so that they could also know what was going on. I set up the n0ticeboard to share what I discovered in my conversations, to give people a space to take up the offers I hear about about and to join in the events people plan.
Where is Great Lever and what are the three best things about it?
Great Lever is the southern part of Bolton Town Centre and it is a fantastically diverse area, it is also very creative and in a sense it is a place where people can make things happen.
What do you hope to achieve with the noticeboard?
I really hope this becomes a landing point for members of the community to come together and for residents to be able to take the lead with what’s happening in Great Lever.
