A free event, ‘Making Community Connections’ will be held next Thursday for volunteers and community organisers. The event, which will take place on October 11 in the Holywell Trust on Bishop Street between 12pm and 3.30pm, is co-produced by Grow Wild, Amplify NI, Eden Project Communities and supported by North West Community Network. The focus is on working on making connections with other projects as well as with communities. The afternoon of community conversation is designed for volunteers and community organisers. Grainne McCloskey, Eden Project Northern Ireland, manager said: “As National Lottery Funded community projects, Grow Wild, Amplify NI and The Big Lunch reap the benefits of working together in partnership. “We know everyone works long hours within your own communities but taking time to raise your head make connections, explore new ideas and find out what others are doing is important too. “Join us for an afternoon of community conversation designed for volunteers and anyone working in the community or who has an idea they would like to try to get started. “Share your local insights and get the inside word on Grow Wild funding. Find out how to Amplify your community ideas and get connected with #TheBigLunch and people across Northern Ireland, bringing people together and making good things happen where they live.” A hot lunch will be served at midday and anyone with dietary requirements can email The organisers ask that no more than two tickets are booked per project.
