An exciting celebration launched the beginning of the PBSA (Place Based Social Action) programme in Sincil Bank. The neighbourhood is one of only 10 places in the whole of England to be awarded the PBSA funding by the DCMS and the National Lottery Community Fund.
A group of committed, local residents gathered at Sincil Bank Stadium’s Legends Lounge to find out about the PBSA programme and how each organisation within the Sincil Bank Community Partnership (Lincoln City Foundation, City of Lincoln Council, University of Lincoln, Voluntary Centre Services Lincoln, Maze Matters Community Group, Lincolnshire Economic Action Partnership) intends to enhance the Sincil Bank neighbourhood over the course of the next 3 years. Maze Matters’ Community Group Chairperson and Street Champion – Anne Lawson said, “As a resident I have been really impressed with the enthusiasm shown by the local people and the partnership so far and I am really looking forward to seeing the progress which Sincil Bank can make as the area is full of potential”.
The event gave residents and partners to chance to discuss potential actions to help improve social issues in the area. Community Organiser – Frank Best said, “It was fantastic to see passionate Sincil Bank residents come together with the Partners to share their thoughts, feelings and ideas and commit to carrying out proactive solutions in the neighbourhood”.
