Visiting Braunstone

Wednesday, May 10, 2006

Meg chose Braunstone as the venue of her first visit from the brand new Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Members and residents of Braunstone Community Association (BCA), which has seen the area transformed by £49.5 million of Government cash, greeted Ms Munn, showed her two of the projects and talked about their aspirations for the future.

Ms Munn visited the Turning Point Women's Centre, funded by BCA to run a number of projects to tackle teenage pregnancy, to meet local women on a peer education session. She then went on to Braunstone Leisure Centre, a £10 million state of the art Leisure facility that has been developed as part of the New Deal for Braunstone scheme.

Meg said:

"I wanted to learn as much as I could from the people of Braunstone about their community. Although the visit was brief, I was able to spend some time hearing what has been happening in Braunstone, and how that could be replicated elsewhere.”

"The chief executive, chair, directors and residents have worked hard in partnership with Government to get to where they are now. They and the Government want to build on that success so in five and ten year’s time there is a thriving, sustainable community. " 

Richard Atkinson, Archdeacon of Leicester and Chairman of the BCA Board, said:

"We felt very privileged to welcome Meg Munn to Braunstone. The fact that she chose to come and see us as an example of a successful regeneration programme is another sign of how Braunstone is now at the forefront in terms of community-led regeneration and in particular, the New Deal for Communities programme. Directors had a useful discussion with the Minister and have invited her back for a more in depth visit when she has settled into the department."
