Many people are looking forward to Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year. It will mean time off work and any excuse to celebrate with friends for some people. It will be a way to pay tribute to the reigning monarch for others.

It should also help local people, and a sports and community group in Peterborough has received £8,877 as a grant. This funding comes from the National Lottery and is part of £5m going towards community groups and organisations as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

People love community group socialising in Peterborough

The Kings Cliffe Active centre, in Station Road, is a great choice, and many locals love spending time here.

Simon Fairhall, chair of Kings Cliffe Active trustees, spoke to the Peterborough Telegraph, saying; “We are delighted to have secured this award and are looking forward to delivering our project in partnership with Half Moon Creative Arts, the Underground Centre and the selected Artists. We hope to see everyone from the community at the workshops – young and old – whether or not you are a regular user of our site and activities. It will enable a significant improvement to the community spaces we have identified and make them more welcoming for everyone.”

Knowing there are local places for people to socialise and spend time together is essential, and it is pleasing to know that many Peterborough residents benefit from this work. This isn’t just about homeowners; tenants also enjoy these benefits. So, landlords benefit too, because if things make life easier for people living in the local area, it can only be positive news for the rental market.

Make the most of local life

The centre plans to use the funding to run creative workshops. The plan is to see local people create several murals, brightening Peterborough. When people see work they played a part in, they take more tremendous pride in it and the surrounding areas. There is a lot to love about life in Peterborough, and small changes like this make the local area a much better place.

Darren Henley, chief executive at Arts Council England, spoke to the Peterborough Telegraph, saying; “The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund is a wonderful example of our ambition to give everyone the opportunity to participate in and experience the arts, culture and creativity – made possible thanks to National Lottery players. This June, we’ll see communities across England coming together to celebrate a historic milestone for this country. I’m excited to see these projects brought to life in villages, towns and cities across the country as our wonderfully creative communities celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.”
