My Colville

Colville councillors have supported a fantastic array of local ideas, based on agreed priorities with residents. Recently funded projects include support for lunch clubs for older residents, education provision for younger people and local history projects

In 2013, Colville councillors continued their engagement with the Colville Forum and its members to identify local issues and inform ward projects. Funding was awarded towards a short film titled “Once upon a time at All Saints Road” by the London Film Foundation as well as to Portobello Dance School to help local children take up dance. Visit the ward spend page for a full breakdown of projects in Colville.

Get involved in the Colville Community Forum

Colville One of the main ways local people can get involved in Colville is through the 'Colville Community Forum'. The forum is a fully constituted community organisation, with each of the three ward councillors as trustees and Forum members representatives from local people and organisations. Residents are invited along to the public meetings of the Forum to suggest activities which may be of benefit to local people, so that feedback can be given by neighbours and help inform councillor decisions on the budget spend. Visit the Colville Community Forum to find out more.

Notting Hill at War

One of the many projects ward councillors have agreed to fund so far in 2014 is a local history project commemorating the start of World War One, and the impact the war had on the lives of local people.

With the support of the Colville Community Forum, councillors funded Colville Community History Project to present ‘Notting Hill at War’. The project helped to preserve and increase awareness of local community history with an exhibition and event at the Tabernacle in Powis Square and the North Kensington Library. The funding it has received through City Living Local Life will enable residents to learn more about local history in this, the centenary year of World War I.

The exhibition commemorated the centenary of the start of World War I, the anti-German Electric Cinema riots on Portobello Road, the 70th anniversary of the Clydesdale V1 bomb attack during World War II and local war heroes.Notting Hill at War
