Rasen leads the way in gaining WLDC grants

MARKET Rasen has been awarded more money from a new type of community fund than any other area in the district.

West Lindsey District Council’s Community Action and Volunteering Fund (CAV Fund) - for activities that bring communities together - aims to support hundreds of projects in West Lindsey within the next two years.

To make sure the CAV Fund is evenly distributed the district has been split into six areas – Market Rasen, Caistor, Trent, Fossdyke, Witham and Gainsborough – and each will get £40,000.

So far the Market Rasen division has received more grants than any other area – 14 grants have been awarded in total. Four were awarded in April.

The Caistor area – which includes places like North Kelsey and Swallow – has so far received a total of four grants. This area was awarded one in April.

In the Caistor area Keelby Jubilee Committee was awarded £245 for Keelby Jubilee Picnic in the Park.

In Market Rasen Faldingworth Methodist Church was awarded £250 for Methodist chapel gutter repairs.

Linwood Chase Neighbourhood Watch and Trust was given £250 for its Help Your Neighbour project.

Rasen Heritage Society was awarded £250 for a booklet publication and display area signage and Market Rasen Lions Club got £250 for the Spring Gardeners Market.
