Community News Project
Warwick Ahead began as a film project run by One to One Development Trust engaging residents in saying and deciding what they wanted to spend their money on and as a way of engaging more people and bringing awareness of the Big Local project. Eleven films have been created throughout the project a with different groups and at different stages of the Community Plan, these have involved over 400 people including an important film project at Simpsons Lane School teaching the children film making and animation skills.
One to One have also produced 15 newsletters (22,500 copies) distributed round the estate. Due to demand the circulation and size of the newsletter increased from 1000 per addition to 2000, and went from 4 pages to 8.
One to One created the publicity for the Warwick Ahead events/ meetings and have produced the logos and design of all the Warwick Ahead publicity material. One to One developed, administrated and host this Warwick Ahead website.
Over the three years One to One has delivered training in social media, presenting on camera, interview techniques, writing press releases and social media has been run for residents.
In March 2017 the Community News Project ended. This website provides a record of the first three years. A DVD of all the films is available – please enquire at the Community Shop.
