Our Southlands residents are taking part in two projects run by Big-Ideas, an organisation that delivers community and education projects.

Elaine, Activity Coordinator at Southlands has been allocated a small amount of funding to purchase resources for the projects.

The projects are Tull100 – to commemorate the achievements of Walter Tull, the first man of black heritage to become an officer in the British Army; and Trailblazers – commemorating inspirational women from the First World War.

Residents will find out more about these people and their great achievements and work together to create a display of their findings.
