Today, we launched the project’s East Preston Challenge – offering people across Deepdale, Ribbleton and St Matthew’s the chance to win cash prizes for ideas that help make East Preston a place to be proud of.
Inspired by the stories that Speak Up Preston’s team of community journalists have been uncovering, the East Preston Challenge is an exciting opportunity for people and organisations to come together to find and deliver local solutions to local issues.
We hope that people in Deepdale, Ribbleton and St Matthew’s have been inspired by the stories on our Speak Up Preston website and have ideas about how to address some of the issues raised. In return for their time and ideas, we’re offfering some cash prizes and excellent practical support available to help the best ideas get off the ground and start making a difference locally.
There’s more information about the Challenge on the “Take Action” pages of the project website.
