Cash boost for community groups

Chanctonbury County Local Committee has approved £4,000 of Community Initiative Funding for local organisations.

The latest round of applications approved by the committee were:

West Sussex Woodturners: £2,000 towards the purchase of audio-visual equipment for use by the organisation.

Weald Community Church: £2,000 towards a disability access project.

Chairman Frank Wilkinson said: “Our Community Initiative Fund helps support local organisations and groups. There is still funding available to be allocated before the end of the financial year, so I would urge local groups to get any applications they have in to us, so we can consider them at our next meeting.”

The Committee next meets on Wednesday March 6, 2013, from 7pm, at The Steyning Centre, Fletchers Croft, Steyning, BN44 3XZ.
