My Colville

In Colville ward, funding was allocated to 12 community projects and events. Over the summer Councillors contributed to the Notting Hill Pioneers Carnival which is a pre carnival event focussing on the history of the Carnival and its roots and the 2017 Colville History project which was a series of exhibitions and talks on local history. Further awards were made to the K&C Volunteer Centre for their Portobello ambassadors project – recruiting, training and deploying local residents as information points for local visitors and residents to the local area. Support of the arts was a continuing theme in the ward with funding allocated to the Gloucester Court Reminiscent Group exhibition which this year focused on a selection of photographs of play from the 1960’s and Notting Hill Visual Arts Festival which showcased local artwork and talks at the Tabernacle.

Get involved in the Colville Community Forum

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.
