The Community Theme is about helping to improve opportunities for residents, build community relations and encourage safety. It also looks at making the best use of community facilities.
The PEBL Partnership’s made up of residents from the Prospect Estate, plus others who want to make a difference and help achieve the PEBL vision that Prospect Estate will be a welcoming, safe, thriving community where individual strengths are recognised, people are actively involved and are proud to live. The Partnership meets monthly to go over what’s happening with the different PEBL projects, consider grant applications, vote on proposals and make decisions.
Prospect Community Centre
The Prospect Community Centre now has activities taking place daily and is increasingly becoming a hub for local residents. There’s something going on every day! Whether it’s the PEBL Internet cafe, Skills Cafe or Money Advice; the Friday walking club, or youth group, there are activities for young and old!
PEBL Money Advice
The PEBL Money Advice Service offers free confidential advice for people who may be struggling to ends make ends meet. Free money advice in all areas of money management including banking, budgeting and claiming benefits. Money-related workshops are also run as well as food- tasting sessions based on healthy eating on a budget. Every Wednesday 10am – 3.30pm at the Prospect Community Centre.
Knit, Natter and Games
In March 2017 PEBL started a Knit, Natter and Games session that enables people to make new friends while knitting, playing a board game and enjoying the company of others. Free tea and biscuits! Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday from 2-4pm at the Prospect Community Centre.
Supporting Mayfield Community Partnership
PEBL’s actively involved in supporting the Mayfield Community Partnership events. These include their annual Spring Clean of the Prospect Estate, the summer Child Safety Day at which children learn how to stay safe in the community, the MCP Sports Festival and also their Christmas carol service at the Mayfield Community Centre.
Friends of PEBL/ PEBL Volunteers
PEBL wouldn’t happen without the help of Friends of PEBL! These are people who’ve shown an interest in getting involved to make a difference on the Prospect Estate. If you’d like to be a Friend of PEBL, let us know. There are always opportunities to get involved, whether it’s making cups of tea for an event or helping out with the Internet cafe. All are welcome. It’s a great way to meet new people and get involved.
