CCG Hosts Big Lottery NI Staff Away Day

CCG hosts Big Lottery NI Staff Away Day

The Connswater Community Greenway hosted the Big Lottery Northern Ireland Staff Away Day on the 13th March.

The staff members were split into five groups to focus on the various themes within the CCG project: Shared Space; Physical Environment; Health; Education and Economic.

They were firstly given the opportunity to walk part of the CCG and then sent to team centres situated around East Belfast.

At the centres the teams came up with one new BIG Idea for the Connswater Community Greenway project which were later presented in various art forms including rap!! They also visited 'go sees' relevant to their theme to gain more knowledge on the project. Extra points could be gained by taking part in various activities which included cycling to Greenway Outreach Centres to collect numbered ducks.

The teams then gave a photograph presentation of their theme and were questioned on their knowledge of the project by the Y Factor Panel comprising of representatives from Belfast City Council, Department for Social Development and the Connswater Community Greenway. 

The Shared Space team members were declared winners.

A big thank you to all who contributed to make the day a huge success.
