Hello. Have you heard about us? We are a non profit making organisation set up and run by local people, for local people. NWI BLT is a community project serving the areas of Whitton, Whitehouse & Castle Hill. This can't be done without funding of course so where did the money come from? The Lottery via Local Trust.

Local Trust set up 150 Big Local groups across the country with £1 million each with the aim of enabling residents to make their communities and their areas even better places in which to live. Big Local was their first and major initiative.
