Community Grants

What a fantastic night! We had 15 community groups from Frodsham & Helsby seeking support from their colleagues for three £1,000 grant awards from Cllr Les Ford, Mark Ingram and my community grants pot.  Each of us has had £5,000 to award in each of the last two years - so that is £30,000 in total available to support community work.

And we've awarded the lot!

Last night 4th Frodsham Scouts, 3rd Frodsham Sea Scouts, and Castle Park Arts Centre convinced their colleagues that their projects for:
  • indoor bowling for our older citizens (4th Frodsham (Overton) Scouts)
  • refurbishing their toilets, and (3rd Frodsham Sea Scouts)
  • assistance in reparing (Castle Park Arts Centre)
should be supported.

Les, Mark and I also took the opportunity to support some of the other projects.  Those winning the awards will learn of that very shortly.
