The Broughton and Brooklands Community Connectors are a group of volunteers helping make our community a better place.
We are building a community initiative across Broughton & Brooklands, by organising and supporting events & activities. We aim to share experience & knowledge across the community and help enable new initiatives to flourish.
We collaborate on events such as:
- Monthly litter picks in collaboration with the Parks Trust and Places for People
- The Broughton Cycling Group Sportif
- Brookfest with Brooklands Farm Primary School
And host events such as:
- Pub quizzes
- Family Fun Days
- The Big Lunch
- Friday Night Dinner Presents...
We also host open meetings on the last Tuesday of the month at Broughton Pavilion. Here the elected committee and volunteers discuss policy, new events, and explore new funding options.
All events whether run by or supported by the Community Connectors must be agreed by the committee.
What people say about our events
Community Connectors is run by local people. Here are the faces you'll see at committee meetings..
Help us, by making a donation to keep events in Broughton and Brooklands running
The aim of the Group is to build community cohesion across a broad ethnic spread and raise pride in the community, by harnessing the energy of local volunteers and groups to coordinate community events under one banner, providing tools, resources, advice and removing barriers.
Every year we put on a summer of events, between a small group of volunteers we manage to host up to 4 events a week catering for all age ranges and abilities.
Some of the events have been family fun days in our local pavilions to outdoor sessions which include pond dipping and bug hunting. It means every child in our community has the opportunity to attend our events.
In the past we have been lucky enough to benefit from grants. Without them we would not be able to put on our events. However those grants are becoming less and less available.
If everyone in our community could make a donation it doesn't matter how small we can continue to run these events.
