There is almost £12000 still available for allocation before the end of March for projects in the East March, and as part of the Community First Plan, the panel wants to hear from residents about where they think the remaining funding should be allocated, as well as from residents who think they can help to improve the East March.
The projects supported so far have been varied and include a Community Street Party where approximately 40 residents were entertained, improvements to several Community Gardens including the provision of a green house, a patio garden, planting and storage facilities, equipment for youth organisations has been provided, cookery classes for young people funded as well as equipment to improve community IT facilities.
Groups which have benefited include Duncombe Garden and Duncombe Street residents, Your Place Community Garden, The Scouts, Hope Street Trust, Harbour Place, and Wiz Kidz Nursery.
So get in touch if you have ideas about what the area needs to improve it, or if you want to be involved in making things better. Community First grants really can help residents, and community organisations to make East Marsh a better place, let's make sure that this funding is put to good use to support projects in this area.
