Councillors ready to help local groups

The county council’s Big Society Fund is open for business once again, enabling councillors to support local groups and activities.

Councillors voted to continue with the fund at a meeting at County Hall.

Through the fund, all county councillors are allocated £2,000 each year which they can allocate to deserving local causes.

In previous years, councillors’ grants have benefited residents of all ages, across Lincolnshire, funding a diverse range of projects from village halls to sports clubs and play areas to rescue boats.

If anyone is involved with a community group, local activity or project that would benefit from some additional funding, they should contact their local county councillor.

Coun Sue Woolley, executive councillor for health, housing and communities, said: “The Big Society Fund has proved to be very popular. It enables councillors with their local knowledge, to support small groups and charities which are active in their area. Community groups are the lifeblood of our towns and villages.”
