  1. Thornton Lodge Action Group was formed to act as a voice for the residents of Thornton Lodge and the surrounding areas. The inspiration behind the group came from local residents themselves who wanted to influence how the local authority spent £3.76 million which was earmarked for Thornton Lodge.

    Thornton Lodge Action plays an influential role within the community through its development, information, voice and representation work. It works closely with community members to support a coherent voice to promote positive change and regeneration in our ward.

    The Action group puts its aims into practice in a number of related ways:-

    • it is a local organisation working on issues best dealt with at the local level.
    • it promotes an influential, coherent and organised resident led voice at local and district level.
    • it is a resident led organisation with over 200 members.
    • it acts as a channel of communication on local matters and supports the representation of the community on local bodies.
    • it is concerned especially with the needs of disadvantaged community.

    One strand of our work is to work closely with the local community to fill gaps in services. We do this by linking in with local authority, NHS, Children Centre's, youth group and council initiatives. Our aim to promote and improve educational, health and economic welfare of the community.
