The Allenton Big Local funded Job Club at Allen Park, delivered by Derby Adult Learning, is continuing to grow. On average, 14 people attend the club each week with a high proportion from the Allenton Big Local area.

The atmosphere within the Job Club is very friendly and the users help each other and share information about job opportunities. There is also a noticeboard in the centre’s reception area where current job vacancies are displayed and updated on a regular basis.

SigningWebWe’re pleased to report that an agreement for £70k of Big Local funding to support the refurbishment of St Martin’s Community Centre on Flint Street has been signed by Allenton Big Local, St Martin’s Methodist Church and Enthusiasm (our Locally Trusted Organisation).

The community centre at St Martin’s is to receive a huge revamp through a DIY-SOS-style community project led by Hodgkinson Builders and supported by Allenton Big Local and Derby Homes.

Allenton Big Local has been working with the Allenton Community Support parent group to produce a booklet that contains the six favourite recipes from the cookery course delivered by the Nacro Osmaston Family Project.

The Easy Meals for you and your Family booklet also includes  tips and advice on healthy eating, a word search and a quiz to test how much you know about sugar. You can read the booklet online now by clicking on the link below or click here to download a PDF which you can open in an iBooks or Kindle app:
