Our Projects

Our consultation was huge

We got literally hundreds of ideas – so there’s lots to be done. Below are just a few of the things that we’re trying to do in 2019.

Our full action plan is available here

If you want to get involved with any of our current projects then sign up today and pledge your support at contactyourkirky@gmail.com


Phone boxes – Kirky is home of the phone box, and we have access to 3 iconic K9 phone boxes that are in urgent need of a new lease of life. So whether you want to turn them into defibrillators, community information points or the world’s smallest dancefloor, then get in touch and help us bring these back to life.

A Fairtrade Town – Over 600 communities across the UK have achieved Fairtrade status since Garstang in Lancashire became the first Fairtrade Town in the world in 2001. We’d like Kirky to be one of those towns. Get involved and help to make a commitment to supporting Fair trade. 


Image result for cinema

Cinema – everyone, young and old, told us they wanted to see cinema back in Kirky. That’s a long road for us to travel, but we’re keen to try. First stop is to try it out and we’ll be holding a cinema event in October this year. We need volunteers to help us run this so please get involved.


Regent Gardens – we’d like to redevelop Regent Gardens to give the community a space that’s fit for the next 30 years. But we need to know how you’d like to see it be developed. During 2019 we’ll be hosting a conversation to inform the way forward.


Image result for social media

Website/Social Media – none of these things work without a good ability to talk to people. We constantly need help with our webpages and social media. If you’ve got skills in this area and a very small amount of time to spare please get in touch.


We need your help to develop a travel strategy in Kirky. Everything above was what you told us in the consultation last year…but what does this mean for the future of travel in the town?

Come and give us your ideas on what you think the future vision for travel might look like!


We really need your help to do more.

If you like what you’ve read and want to help deliver that future vison of our town, then we would really love to hear from you.

We’d particularly like to hear from you if you have experience or skills in any of the following areas:

Community involvement

Project management

Funding

Communications

Marketing IT/Social Media

Experience related to any of the project ideas

Or even that you just Love Kirky and want to help make it a better place. Please sign up today contactyourkirky@gmail.com
