Building better communities in Bournemouth

Do you know a local building project in need of a cash injection? Jewson has opened nominations for its 2017 Building Better Communities competition, and is calling on people in Bournemouth to nominate community schemes throughout the region.

This year’s total regional prize fund has doubled to £200,000 and is open to applications from improvement projects across England, Scotland and Wales.

Community groups can apply for a share of the overall prize fund – anything from £500 to £10,000 to spend on building materials – or put their project forward for the top prize of £50,000 for building materials and labour.

Mark Rayfield, CEO of Jewson, said: “Since Building Better Communities launched in 2015, we’ve seen the difference that the competition has had on local communities and charities. We know there are many more projects that could benefit out there, which is why we’re encouraging people in Bournemouth to nominate a cause close to their hearts.

“We’ve also introduced a new category for 2017 – the Trade Hero award. We know that tradespeople are working hard to help their communities on a regular basis, and we really want to champion these people and enable the work they’re doing.”  

Since the first year of the competition in 2015, Building Better Communities has helped over 40 community projects across the UK.

Community groups and tradespeople have until 5th May 2017 to put forward their project. Nominations can be made via www.buildingbettercommunities or the Jewson Facebook page at
